Its not just MPJ and his platform (Snapchat) tho. It's when it makes the rounds on Twitter by accounts with hundreds of thousands or even millions of followers that could eclipse the 80mil of Trump. And more than likely, those following NBA/sports/player accounts aren't the same demo as those following Trump. And that's not even mentioning it being talked about on TV/Radio. It's getting thru to the younger, more impressionable generation and filling their heads with misinformation/fake news.
those are all fair points. I guess I am just feeling like half the world is full of bullshit in their heads, yet still convinced of things that are demonstrably false (world is flat, vaccines don't work, masks don't help).

I'll never understand the logic behind the "whole world is being controlled" point. It's like, no shit, people have been controlling each other since people existed, and I'm sure MPJ and his ilk are surely enjoying the benefits of living in a modern "controlled" society.

Don't want to be controlled? Go live on a mountain in the Himalayas, ya moron.

I feel like I’m drowning. The world is swimming in conspiracy theories.

This is the person Trump chooses to retweet. Let that sink in.

Herman Cain just died from Covid. He checked into the Hospital less than two weeks after attending Trumps MAGA rally. Coincidence?

"Ya know it's a terrible tragedy but I heard he was sick way before Tulsa. He really wasn't doing that well and I told him not to come but he wanted to be there anyway. To be honest, I hardly even knew the guy but ya know, he'll be missed. He fought 'til the end."

He refused to wear a mask there, and like all of them, had to sign a waiver of culpability for the campaign...

No wonder the GOP wants liability protection for companies in the next coronavirus bill so workers can't sue if they get sick going back to work.
