All this talk of “Fake News” especially the Trump administration’s complete misunderstanding of the term, has me wondering: how does this effect Huey Lewis?

 In the following twitter thread what a Huey Lewis & the FAKE News featuring the Trump Tower of Power Horns might be. I think, it might go, a little something, like this:
