[Ed. – Is it fake news yet? Is Twitter going to censor it?]
A Democratic pollster posted a tweet on Easter Sunday, comparing and contrasting the supposed churchgoing records of President Obama and President Trump — neither of whom is, shall we say, particularly renowned for his overt religiosity. It’s racked up tens of thousands of retweets and likes, with screenshots and similar memes buzzing around Facebook and Instagram. Obama was a God-fearing Christian, unlike that pagan Trump; these so-called Christian Republican voters are such hypocrites! Problem: It’s an inaccurate tweet.

The original tweeter has been defending himself and refusing to delete the false post, uncorking a slew of justifications, most of which are some variation of “fake but accurate” or “it’s Trump’s fault.”
