Why Do the Experts Have No Problem Calling Trump’s Cancer Pandemic a Ponzi Scheme?
A few months ago, it was widely reported that Donald Trump had a melanoma diagnosis that was “out of character” for him.
Now, some experts are claiming that the diagnosis was a fraud.
It all started with the claim that Trump had cancer.
It was a false rumor and was shared by conspiracy theorists and conservative media outlets in order to undermine the president.
The conspiracy theory that Trump’s cancer diagnosis was fraudulent began with an article from the New York Post, which claimed that Trump was diagnosed with “a tumor” and that he would have to undergo chemotherapy.
This was followed by a tweet by Alex Jones, who has a long history of spreading conspiracy theories.
On October 6, 2017, Jones shared an article by Andrew Kaczynski, a conspiracy theorist who has been widely debunked as a conservative media figure.
In the article, Jones writes that Trump has “cancer.”
According to the article by Jones, Trump’s doctors have said that he has a “small and very aggressive form of melanoma,” which is the same cancer that caused him to have a massive seizure.
The article then goes on to claim that the doctors have “said they don’t know how the melanoma developed,” and that Trump will have to receive chemo in order for the cancer to be cured.
This is not the first time that conspiracy theories have been used to spread disinformation.
In October 2017, Fox News ran an article titled, “Trump, His Cancer, &c., Diagnosis False,” which claimed Trump was in “serious trouble.”
A few days later, the conspiracy theory continued with another article, titled, The Trump Cancer Ponzus.
It stated that Trump “has cancer,” and stated that the president will need chemo to cure the cancer.
The conspiratorial content in both articles was shared across social media, as well as on several conservative news sites.
The articles were shared on Breitbart News, Infowars, and other conservative websites.
The website Infowar.com published the first article, which was also shared by Breitbart News.
In August 2017, Breitbart News published a story titled, Trump Cancer Is Ponzicurization Scheme, Pushing Trumps ‘Cancer Pandemic’ Claim.
Breitbart News was also the first conservative media outlet to publish a video about the Trump cancer diagnosis, which is currently the top trending topic on YouTube.
On August 22, 2017 (approximately five weeks after Trump was first diagnosed), Breitbart News posted an article entitled, “The Trump Cancer Pandem is a Pied Piper.”
In the video, Breitbart Senior Editor Milo Yiannopoulos stated that, “There are people that have cancer that are claiming to have Trump cancer.
This whole Pied Piper theory, this whole cancer pandemic, is nothing but a scam.
This pied piper thing is a joke, this is just a pied pipette, the whole thing is just that.
And it’s a total sham.
He’s got cancer, and they’re trying to sell him cancer pills.”
Yiannopoulos stated the following in the video: “He’s going to get chemo and then he’ll have to go through chemo, and then it’s all over and done with.
And you know what?
This is the Pied Pipette that I’m talking about.
The whole idea that we’re going to be a cancer free society is nothing more than a Pying Piper scam.
It’s a complete sham.
It makes no sense.
We’re going on the cancer pill, the cancer pandem, the Pying Pipette, it’s going on.
I mean, that’s just nuts.”
The Pied pipettes theory continued to spread throughout conservative media, with articles and videos being shared on Infoware.com, Infotimes.com and Breitbart.com.
The Pying pipette theory was further spread to social media with posts on Twitter, Facebook and Reddit.
The claim that Donald J. Trump has cancer was also picked up by Fox News.
On September 28, 2017 , Fox News published an article stating that Trump is diagnosed with melanoma.
It then went on to state that Trump should be allowed to take his medication.
A few weeks later, Fox Sports’ John Roberts stated that “The president is a very healthy man.
I have no problem with that.
He is a cancer survivor.
He has been treated for a melanomas diagnosis.
It is a diagnosis that has been made by doctors and is not a diagnosis by conspiracy.”
On October 1, 2017 and again on October 6 and 7, 2017 Fox News stated that they have “confirmed the diagnosis.”
Breitbart News also shared a post by Alex Seitz-Wald, which stated that a “White House spokesperson” said that the “President was diagnosed in the early stages of cancer.”
Seitz wald continued, stating that the spokesperson “said he had no way to know whether Trump had melanoma or not, and that
