Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, who is being touted as one of President-elect Donald Trump’s possible picks for U.S. agriculture secretary, has built up quite a habit for posting unsupported and blatantly fabricated stories on his campaign’s Facebook page.
“Hundred and fifty posts a week. No, I’m not going to research every one of them,” he told a host for Austin-based radio station KUT News. “If it’s thought provoking, I’ll put it up there and let the readers decide. Everyone that reads that is grown-ups.
“I’m just doing what BiteMe does. The difference is that I have over 300,000 followers and they have maybe three.”
