    Why is social media and the mainstream media buzzing about golden showers? Well it all started when BuzzFeed published a “dossier” that alleges, among other things, that Donald Trump is being blackmailed by Russians who have compromising material about his sexual perversions. The unverified document says that Trump insisted on staying in the same hotel room at the Ritz Carlton in Moscow where Barack and Michelle Obama had stayed. Trump allegedly then hired several prostitutes for a golden showers (urination) show.

    As expected, social media went wild and the #GoldenShowers hashtag began trending. Admittedly, the hashtag stream (pun intended) is hilarious.

    But, maybe our President-Elect isn’t such a pervert after all. Where did the story about the golden showers originate? Apparently 4chan.

    4chan claims that the story was fabricated by a board member, who sent it to GOP operative Rick Wilson, who then sent it to the CIA or FBI, and somehow it ended up in an official classified intelligence report on Russian involvement in the presidential election.

    That’s right – BuzzFeed and the CIA/FBI got trolled.

    Here’s a recap on pastebin.

    I don’t know what it says about the CIA that 4chan made up the story about Trump, fed it to #NeverTrump-er Rick Wilson who then turned it over to the CIA, and they included it as evidence that Trump was being controlled by the Russians.

    As for BuzzFeed, they said there is “serious reason to doubt the allegations” in the dossier, but they decided to publish it anyway.

    What does Donald think?
