The internet falls for Trump-'Gorilla Channel' parody
"Michael Wolff’s bombshell book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House is full of salacious stories from President Donald Trump’s first year in office. As media outlets published excerpts from the book in early January 2018, Twitter user PixelatedBoat took advantage of the frenzy to share a fake passage in which White House aides purportedly confessed that they had created a 'Gorilla Channel' in order to placate a furious Trump."
Here is the original Tweet
It's truly amazing that so many people were fooled by that fake excerpt. That is truly a tribute to both the gullibility and the illiteracy of the American public. There are periods outside of quotation marks. That's a mistake I also make when I'm writing hurriedly, but it would never appear in an edited book from a professional American publisher. (I specified "American" because the UK has different rules governing this aspect of punctuation.)
