KITM is not immune to Friday the 13th luck, but nothing David Waldman couldn’t reboot us out of.

Maybe it was all a Russian plot, because as it is turning out, everything is. Russia is using LinkedIn as a tool of war. Russians are manipulating us on Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr and even Pokémon Go. Facebook’s Russian connections are being shown to go deeper with each passing day. Facebook has taken down data and thousands of posts to obscure the reach of Russian disinformationTwitter’s deleted data is potentially crucial to Russia probes. Oh, and Russia’s propaganda campaign infiltrated Instagram, too. Russia recruited YouTubers to bash Hillary over rap beats. Homegrown racists join with the Russians to fight globalism, and brown people.

The gun-packing King of Instagram couldn’t shop out the yellow streak that appeared down his back during the Vegas massacre. An officer on the scene was not a fan.

In a case of indexing gone awry, an elite’s history of pedophile rape is overlooked to gain elite credibility for a story.
