4chan Claims It Invented the Trump Golden Showers Story

Posted by on Jan 11, 2017 at 8:26 am

As news broke of an unverified document detailing supposed Russian dirt on President-elect Donald Trump—including sordid allegations involving urine and prostitutes in Russia—users on the subreddit r/The_Donald and 4chan’s /pol/ forum took a victory lap.

Not because they found the story funny, but because they claim they planted it as a fake. Proof that it’s all an elaborate 4chan ruse, however, is thin.

Reddit’s r/The_Donald users pointed to an anonymous 4chan post from Nov. 1, exactly one week before the election, that Redditors say proves “/pol/ really invented this rumor” involving Trump’s alleged business and personal ties to Russia.

“So they took what I told Rick Wilson and added a Russian spy angle to it. They still believe it. Guys, they’re truly fucking desperate—there’s no remaining Trump scandal that’s credible,” the anonymous post from Nov. 1 reads. Wilson is a Republican operative who managed Evan McMullin’s independent campaign and has been an outspoken critic of Trump.

There are no details in the post, which is archived here, about what was allegedly told to Wilson—simply that the user purportedly gave him fake information. It also doesn’t explain how this would have gotten to intelligence agencies.

    Did they find the document where Putin hacked the election while flying a plane with a live bear as a co-pilot?
    Yea he hacked the election with airplane wifi while feeding midgets to his pet bear.
    The document might be under the Hot Pockets box that mom just brought to the basement.
