So we see the motivation for going there, he wanted to whip up support in a state that he knew was bamboozled by Russia, who targeted low information, non-critical thinking news consumers. These voters took the bait and fell for the fake news, thereby causing the state to fall for him.
Is this suppose to be news, that a foreign country attempted to influence an election in another country? Really?
The fact that other countries attempt to influence election outcomes is NOT news. The fact that in the 21st century those attempts would include computer generated fake news isn't news if you have a basic understanding of technology and communications.
Your assumption that "voters took the bait and fell for the fake news" works both ways. When the Podesta e-mails get leaked every left leaning news agency and democrat operative wanted to totally ignore the context of the e-mail and make the focus that the DNC was "hacked by the Russians" and most democrats brought the diversion as if the important issue was the messenger and not the content. When the revelation that Donna Brazile leaked questions to the Clinton Campaign came to light every DNC spokesperson only wanted to take about "this information was hacked by the Russians".
There has been a ton of speculation offered but ZERO evidence provided that demonstrates that whatever the Russians to "hack the election" that it had any meaningful impact on the election outcome. Should we be concerned about foreign interference in our elections? Of course, but nothing in the hyperventilating by the left that clearly shows Trump is in the White House today because of some activity by the Russians. Clinton lost because she was a terrible candidate with a terrible election strategy.
