I, unlike many on the internet did not fall for the Gorilla Channel excerpt that supposedly came out of the new anti-Trump book Fire and Fury.
The excerpt about the non-existent channel, states that on his first night in the White House, Trump was mad because the WH did not have the Gorilla Channel. “To appease Trump, White House staff compiled a number of gorilla documentaries into a makeshift gorilla channel, broadcast into Trump’s bedroom from a hastily-constructed transmission tower on the South Lawn. However, Trump was unhappy with the channel they had created, moaning that it was ‘boring’ because ‘the gorillas aren’t fighting.”
The tweet which spread like wildfire on twitter was of course fake news. There is no such thing as The Gorilla Channel, and Trump is NOT obsessed with Gorillas, however he is obsessed with cable news, which isn’t too far from the truth. Making the tweet golden satire.
This is the result of a world, a White House that’s gone so insane that people are willing to believe literally anything as long as it sounds good.
