remember when trump announced his candidacy, he hired actors to come in and cheer him on because he had no idiots following him...

remember his inauguration when he could not hire the people to come?

remember the Arizona event that his people had craigslist ads for minorities to be paid to come to the trump rally to hold trump signs and only a few apparently did and trump blew a gasket and the organizer was fired for not enough people at the event.


And now this one...

Trump mocked over empty seats White House Christmas Tree Lighting

Quote:
The Trump White House drew mockery this week from critics who were quick to notice empty seats at the annual White House Christmas Tree Lighting event on Thursday night.

A photo first posted by ABC reporter Steve Rudin began making the rounds on social media as it seemed to show a surprising number of empty seats in the crowd at the Thursday event, which was held on the grounds of the White House.



Video of the 95th annual National Christmas Tree Lighting appears to show everyone in good spirits, and even a packed crowd.

But critics on Twitter were quick to find parallels between the empty chairs at President Donald Trump’s tree lighting and his less-than-packed inauguration.

Twitter to notify 677k people they were followed by Russian-linked troll account IRA
Quote:

Twitter published a statement on Friday to update the public on its ongoing review of the 2016 election. The statement revealed that 677,775 people in the U.S. will be receiving an email from the company notifying them that they were followed, retweeted or liked, by accounts potentially connected to the Russian-linked organization referred to as the Internet Research Agency (IRA). The statement says: “Consistent with our commitment to transparency, we are emailing notifications to 677,775 people in the United States who followed one of these accounts or retweeted or liked a Tweet from these accounts during the election period. Because we have already suspended these accounts, the relevant content

Paul Ryan Collected $500,000 In Koch Contributions Days After House Passed Tax Law

Quote:
Just days after the House passed its version of the federal tax law slashing corporate tax rates, House Speaker Paul Ryan collected nearly $500,000 in campaign contributions from billionaire energy mogul Charles Koch and his wife, according to a recent campaign donor report.

Koch and his brother David spent millions of dollars to get the tax law passed and are spending millions more in a public relations campaign in an attempt to boost support for the law, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Facebook: Russian trolls created 129 event posts during 2016 election
Quote:

On Thursday the Senate Intelligence committee released information from Facebook, Google and Twitter responding to Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election. In its statement, Facebook noted that Russian "Internet Research Agency" (IRA) troll accounts set up 129 events across 12 pages, that were viewed by over 338,000 accounts, with 62,500 saying they were going. What isn't known is how many people actually went to these events, many of which were set up to inflame opposing groups on topics such as Black Lives Matter or immigration.

Facebook has said that nearly 150 million accounts were exposed to Russian propaganda across its site when including posts on Instagram. All three companies said their investigations are ongoing, while Facebook and Twitter said they had not found evidence individual voters were targeted by name using registration data. Facebook's report mentioned "insignificant overlap" between the Russian propaganda and targeted ads and the Trump campaign, while Google and Twitter didn't go into that issue at all.

New York State Probes Social Media Bot Firm Exposed By New York Times

Quote:
New York is investigating an American company accused of selling millions of fake followers to social media accounts, the state’s chief prosecutor said Saturday.

The announcement from Attorney General Eric Schneiderman follows an in-depth New York Times investigation into Devumi, which it alleges has sold automated followers to politicians, celebrities and other public figures, often using the names, pictures and personal details of real people on those bot accounts.

If the accusations prove true, Schneiderman tweeted, Devumi may be found guilty of impersonation and deception. The violations alleged in the Times, he added, unfairly allow people with money to buy “apparent influence.”
