That headline sounds like a joke. It wreaks of “fake news.”
One might even consider it “clickbait.”
And yet, it is 100% true.
A comedian who plays the president on a TV show will now become the next president of Ukraine in real life.
Volodymyr Zelenskiy defeated incumbent President Petro Poroshenko by a landslide based on an exit poll released after voting stations closed, according to multiple reports.Trending:
Zelenskiy, a 41-year-old who has never held public office, received 73.2 percent of the nationwide vote, while Poroshenko only received 25.3 percent.
If the poll results are correct, Zelenskiy, who won nearly twice as many votes as Poroshenko in the first-round election held last month, will become president in a clear rebuke of the incumbent’s leadership.
Is that wild or what?
Soon-to-be former President Petro Poroshenko is facing multiple allegations of corruption.
All we hear about from the left is Russia, Russia, Russia.
And yet, years later, there is still zero proof the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016.
However, the evidence against the Hillary Clinton campaign continues to mount.
From The Hill:
Ukraine’s top prosecutor divulged in an interview aired Wednesday on Hill.TV that he has opened an investigation into whether his country’s law enforcement apparatus intentionally leaked financial records during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign about then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in an effort to sway the election in favor of Hillary Clinton.
The leak of the so-called “black ledger” files to U.S. media prompted Manafort’s resignation from the Trump campaign and gave rise to one of the key allegations in the Russia collusion probe that has dogged Trump for the last two and a half years.
Ukraine Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko’s probe was prompted by a Ukrainian parliamentarian’s release of a tape recording purporting to quote a top law enforcement official as saying his agency leaked the Manafort financial records to help Clinton’s campaign.
Well, that seems like kind of a problem, huh?
Will the mainstream media care to report??
The Hillary Clinton campaign has seemingly been routinely caught working with outside sources to gain insight on Trump.
Why is there no media coverage on that angle?
Why such hypocrisy? Why such a double standard?
Those were rhetorical.
