The first female major party nominee for president, and the winner of the national popular vote by 2.7 million, appears even more presidential in defeat than her erstwhile opponent.

At Harry Reid’s senate retirement event yesterday in Washington D.C., Clinton addressed the media and fellow democrats in what is a nonpartisan issue. Fake news is one of the reasons we specified in our Huffington Post article “Why Hillary Lost: The Great American Lie.” 

“It is clear now that fake news has consequences,” Clinton said, referring to it as an epidemic and “a danger that must be addressed.”

After initially downplaying reports that fake news could have had an effect on the 2016 presidential election on Facebook, CEO Mark Zuckerberg has addressed plans to combat the epidemic on his social media site.
From TheWrap, here are 8 times Donald Trump shared totally bogus stories on social media:
