Is Buzzfeed Guilty of Fake News?: Trump Sex Allegations

The unverified 35-page document published by BuzzFeed claiming Russia has compromising intel on President-elect Donald Trump is taking the internet by storm, particularly over one allegation from the report.

According to the unconfirmed memo, Trump allegedly engaged in watching women perform degrading sex acts in a Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Moscow. Apparently, President Vladimir Putin has the footage.

The report claims the women urinated all over each other while in bed performing sexually salacious acts. The BuzzFeed article described it as “golden showers,” in a play on Donald Trump’s slogan for his constructed Mumbai apartment tower: “I never miss a golden opportunity. Neither should you.”

The unsubstantiated report from an anonymous British intelligence agent, according to BuzzFeed, also claims the heinous acts were committed in the same hotel room that President Obama and the first lady stayed.

Since the unchecked report was leaked by BuzzFeed, Trump and transition counselor Kellyanne Conway have been doing damage control. Trump sent out a charged tweet at the “fake news” claims, and Conway appeared on a Late Night with Seth Meyers interview to clear the air:

“I have to say as an American citizen…, we should be concerned that intelligence officials leaked to the press but won’t go and tell the president-elect or the president of the United States himself, Mr. Obama, what the information is. They would rather go tell the press.”

Below are Conway’s interview, screenshots of the referenced slogan, and a highlighted paragraph from the report:
