We Asked Alexa to List Trump’s Lies, Chaos Ensued

ATLANTA, GEORGIA — We at The Millennial Snowflake Research Center (MSRC) were curious about how many provable falsehoods President Trump has told, since he declared his presidential candidacy in the summer of 2015.

We thought that rather than sorting through thousands of hours of archival footage, it might be best to start by simply asking Alexa, Amazon’s interactive computerized assistant.

“Alexa, please list Donald Trump’s false claims from 2015 to the present.”

“Would you like for me to list them chronologically or alphabetically?” she responded. “Please note that your request may take several hours to process.”

Once Alexa began her exhaustive summary, it did not take our researchers long to realize that we had made a grave mistake. Our Amazon Echo was active for a total of two weeks, dutifully listing presidential canards, until the system overheated, and finally exploded.

“Remember when Trump claimed that thousands of Muslims were cheering after 9/11? Remember when he said that Mexico would pay for a wall along the southern border? Remember when he said that his father was born in Germany? Remember when he claimed that he would not cut Social Security and Medicaid? Remembe- SYSTEM OVERLOAD. ERROR. ERROR. YUGGUFDFFTRDTRDTRFFDFIUGUYGUFGUFGFTFESCYG—”

We advise all owners of the Amazon Echo to refrain from performing similar actions.
