Always remember to forget the friends that proved untrue, but never forget to remember those that have stuck by you

Irish saying from 1934

In case you may be coming in after the latest rapid-fire "Smear Donald Trump" news cycle, the loony left is now saying some Nigerian poet wrote this ditty in 2001 and it was co-opted by President Trump.

This has got to be the most onerous example of fake news I've seen to date - however I am confident there will be many many more to come post-haste.

 Here is a more appropriate rendition:
Always remember to forget the FAKE NEWS that proved untrue, but never forget to remember there are few that have not lied to you

This particular bit is so easy to dissemble that only liberal-progressive mental midgets could possibly fall for it.

A cursory review of just about any search engine will reveal that this poem, proverb, saying, witticism, blessing, or whatever you'd like to call it, has been circulating for nearly 100 years.  It has been written in many books, printed in many newspapers, magazines, greeting cards, trinkets, placards, and other sundry publications.  It is most frequently attributed as being of Irish origin.

Is it any surprise that the crux of this biscuit is a claim from a Nigerian that he wrote it?  I wonder if that is the same Nigerian that just sent me an email advising that I am the recipient of 5 million USD and all I need to do is send him a 10-percent finders fee?
