"However, aside from that one mention from November 1, there is little else to suggest 4chan made it all up.

And although some on r/TheDonald are claiming the archived post is 'literally the first place anywhere you will find that', a Mother Jones article from October - pre-dating the 4chan post - alludes to the allegations that Russia has 'explosive information' on Trump. "

On the one hand - can't believe anyone thinks of 4chan as a credible source.  On the other, not too long ago, I'd have said the same about Buzzfeed.

Here's the thing.  What other possible President-elect could have something like this come up from BuzzFeed of all places, and it sounds completely plausible and not at all shocking?

I'm not saying it's not made up, but fooling a bunch of twenty somethings on the internet is quite different than the cia and fbi.

Yeah, I seriously doubt that. The guy who brole the two page report to CNN was on CNN this morning. He confirmed that that report was a summary of a report by an ex MI-6 agent working for opposition of the Trump campaign. He confirmed the intelligence community considers this source highly credible.

I suspect we've got two threads that are confounding each other. The FBI and CIA do have actionable intelligence that the SCROTUS has provided Russian officials with plenty of blackmail material. I don't think the report that BuzzFeed dropped is in any way a representative sample of that blackmail material.

But it's still "piss yourself" funny.

"Some anonymous Trump trufans on white nationalist subforum of teenage loser hangout claim bad news about their candidate is totally just from when they trolled the CIA."

Gosh I love journalism in the post-factual era.

This biggest problem is not the report itself, but the fact that one could read this and think "yeah, that's plausible".  The very fact that our president could even POSSIBLY be involved in something like this is scary enough in and of itself.

Even if this turns out fake I hope the intelligence agencies did it just to troll Trump. Just to run his name thru the mud like they have been doing to them. One thing you do not fark with are super powerful intelligent agencies that can pick you apart.

Everyone is fixated on the golden showers thing.  I personally think 4chan is full of shiat on this because, well, its 4chan, but its not even the most troubling thing in the report.  Everyone knew Trump was an extremely distasteful pervert before this.  How many women came forward who were groped?  How many times has he said he wants to bang his daughter?  The recorded "locker room talk?"

Its everything else in the report that's more troubling in terms of the Republic as opposed to this moralistic outrage at watersports.

4-Chan claiming responsibility for this is akin to People's Front of Judea (or is it the Judean People's Front?) claiming responsibility for a bombing.  They just want the credit for something it seems like they could have done but they are so busy fighting among themselves about stupid shiat that it's not at all likely.

At this point, does it matter if it's true or not? This is Trump's America! We've already established over the last 18 months that the truth is irrelevant when placed along side beliefs. Beliefs are the new truth.

So it doesn't matter if it's true, because as long as a large population (say, 3 million less than half) believe it to be true, then it becomes true. And judging by #GoldenShowers on twitter, it's now TRUTH.

Yep. Regardless of whether this is the gospel truth or some shiat made up by the residents of the internet's taint or something in between, it's going to provide a fair bit of amusement watching him rage about it. It'll be unpresidented!

I think this 4chan distraction is just Russia again reaching again trying to drive a wedge. That's why you see it move so fast across twitter and Reddit. Especially on twitter accounts you can obviously tell they are bots.

"'So they took what I told Rick Wilson and added a Russian spy angle to it,' an anonymous user wrote. 'They still believe it. Guys, they're truly farking desperate - there's no remaining Trump scandal that's credible.'"

What this fellow doesn't seem to realize is that he and his pals have actually demonstrated just the opposite - that there is no story of malfeasance or perfidy on Trump's part that ISN'T credible.

Maybe turnabout is fair play on this.  We can all say we believe that #GoldenShowers is Truth so it is.  When you get the inevitable whines from the Trump worshippers you can just way it's what I believe so it must be true and facts don't matter.

I am sickened by the whole US now.  This isn't what it was supposed to be.

There's no indication Buzzfeed is a credible source.  They just ran with a story before credible sources were willing to.  They got hold of a document being circulated that multiple other news organization had/have (NYT, CNN, almost certainly many more), but choose to disclose without being able to corroborate details.

As much as it feelslike it could be true and Fark wantsit to be true, it is still nothing but unverified claims.  Claims that the US government and intelligence services are paying attention to, but unverified non the less.

Yeah, I'm still buying this story. Some Trump fans saying "uhh no this is just le epic trole ha ha" is meaningless without some sort of evidence someone posted before the story broke, and an old post with some guy talking about a vague sex scandal doesn't count. If someone really trolled the international intelligence community into thinking Donnie had a piss fetish, I'd expect them to have left an encrypted file somewhere saying "I'm gonna trick the CIA and Mi6 into thinking Trump's got a piss fetish" and only provided the key after the story broke.

Because that is how you do shiat like that.

You don't just rock up later and say "oh uhh that was me guys I did that." Any chump can say that.
