Over the last few months, I have been astounded by the fake news bubbling out of our new government. It seems like there is no lie too big for the Trump Administration. Official after official just claims whatever they want. Twitter is the vessel of choice. The good news is that many people realize that you can’t trust everything you read on social media. The goal in all of this is to master the art of manipulation. Perhaps, they’ve already mastered it. Today, the United States Senate voted to confirm Betsy DeVos to be our Secretary of Education. The vote was close, 51-50. Thankfully, truth does not depend on DeVos’ confirmation. After watching her hearing, I can honestly say that there are millions of people in our country more qualified than she to be the Secretary. DeVos fumbled basic educational question after question. Instead of admitting the truth, the Trump Administration continued to trumpet DeVos as one of the most qualified candidates for Secretary of Education in history. I cannot imagine a bigger piece of Fake News. Aware of the truth, the Trump Administration will do anything to guide the country into deception. It is import to also point out that DeVos’ family is one of the largest donors to conservative causes in the country. I imagine they think any deception is going to be well worth the effort. Make no mistake, the Trump Administration is not alone in the construction of Fake News.

 

In the Gospel of Matthew, an angel scares away the guards placed at the tomb of Jesus. Once they ran into the city, the chief officials paid them a large sum of money to lie about what they had experienced. The guards took the money and fervently told the people that the disciples of Jesus took the body. Regardless of what Fake News the guards shared, the truth was and is that Jesus rose from the dead. Just like the chief officials of Jesus’ day, the Trump Administration is willing to do whatever it takes to contruct and promote Fake News. Despite the lies, it is plain to see that DeVos was and is simply unqualified. Don’t worry though, truth is arisen and there is no Fake News that will live forever.

 

Amen.
