The controversial 2016 election of Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States sparked a debate that promises to define the global political dialogue going forward. Behind the scenes, however, a deeper dynamic has been put into play: conspiracy theory has moved from the sideline fringe onto Americaâ€™s central stage. This book examines The Donaldsâ€™s history of creating alternative realities with â€œalternative factsâ€ and â€œfake newsâ€ and the authentic conspiratorial points of view from which they arise. Trumpocalypse Now! takes a look at Trumpâ€™s career as a conspiracy theory celebrity, his trafficking in such notions as birtherism, Islamofascism and 9/11, the conspiracies of the Clinton era, and the JFK assassination. It also examines the controversies of the 2016 election, including the cyberhacking of the DNC, the Russian involvement and voter fraud. Learn the parapolitical realities behind the partisan divide and the real ideological underpinnings behind the countryâ€™s most controversial president.
