Donald Trump’s very own staff member handed him fake news. And Trump believed it.


Well this is awkward.

Donald Trump, the president who cries “fake news!” almost daily, recently fell victim to a doctored cover of Time Magazine … given to him by a member of his very own staff.

K.T. McFarland, Trump’s deputy national security adviser, reportedly handed the president a printout of two Time covers on climate change, according to Politico: one from 2008, and another that appeared to be from 1977, titled, “How to Survive the Coming Ice Age.” 

But thing is … the latter was completely fake.

To make matters worse, Trump actually believed both covers, getting “lathered up about the media’s hypocrisy,” writes Shane Goldmacher, chief White House correspondent for Politico. Luckily for the president, a group of less gullible staff members stepped in before Donald Trump publicly mentioned the fake, debunking the already-debunked 1970s cover before the president had the chance spread the own fake news.

Cole Sprouse wrote pretty disturbing Mother’s Day poem when he was a kid


At least he consistently rhymed.

Moms are notorious for keeping cards and gifts from their children’s youth and it’s always nice to look back at the sweet words they wrote. However, Cole Sprouse found that his younger self had a darker mindset than most kids, especially when it came to how much he loved his mom.

Android makes a big move to power future cars


Android is coming to your car — and you won’t even need to bring your phone along for the ride. 

A year after Google teased the experience, Android-powered car infotainment systems are much closer to reality. Full Android integration is a step beyond Android Auto, where users can project car-specific versions of apps (like Maps) to a dashboard running some other software; now Android powers the entire system.

The first two carmakers to show off Android-powered cars are Audi and Volvo, and at least one of concept vehicle — Audi’s flashy R8 sport — will be on display at this week’s Google I/O developers conference. Read more…
