In President Trump’s State of the Union address last night, he had the following line:
We all share the same home, the same heart, the same destiny, and the same great American flag.
Together, we are rediscovering the American way.
In America, we know that faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, are the center of the American life. Our motto is “in God we trust.”
If there is one thing Trump collects like flies on poo on a hot July day, it is fact checkers who are stupid but who think of themselves as smart. Enter a guy named Brian Karem who claims he is White House correspondent for Playboy, executive editor for local Maryland newspapers, and a CNN political analyst. He’s probably teaching history to your kids, too.
And this is how it showed up in the pages of the scholarly journal Playboy:
this is like a bad high-school blog post by @BrianKarem; it actually starts with him whining about having to do his job

Of course there is an obvious problem with this. He’s f***ing wrong. In 1956, Congress passed a law establishing the US motto as “In God We Trust.”
