YOUR DAILY DYSTOPIA | 2017.01.17

Billionaire Mark Zuckerberg appeared in a Dallas courtroom on Tuesday to testify that Facebook’s deal to buy VR company Oculus was even more expensive than first publicised, but denied that any software was stolen to make Oculus a success. The 32-year-old is being sued by Zenimax, who alleges its software was stolen.

“The idea that Oculus products are based on someone else’s technology is just wrong,” he told the court after being called as a witness.

When asked if he had stolen the idea for Facebook from anyone, Zuckerberg said, “Your mom,” then walked out of the courtroom.

Popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп retweeted some praise to his daughter Ivanka on Twitter. But it turned out that the 70 year old dementia patient had retweeted a message that praised Ivanka Majic, a digital consultant from the British town of Brighton.

Majic responded with her own tweet and said, “And you’re a man with great responsibilities. May I suggest more care on Twitter and more time learning about #climatechange.”

Трамп was later reported to have said, “She’s not as hot as the real Ivanka, no where near as hot. The real Ivanka could be First Lady. Maybe she should be first lady? Is there ice cream today?”

President Obama commuted the sentence of Chelsea Manning, currently serving 35-years for leaking evidence of a war crime committed by U.S. forces during the Iraq War to Wikileaks.

Manning will be released May 17 after serving nearly seven years for stealing and releasing secret cables that divulged U.S. military and diplomatic secrets related to war crimes.

When asked whether he would have commuted Manning’s sentence, popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп was reported to have said, “I didn’t know that Caitlin Jenner was in jail. Wait, that’s someone else? Who is that? Chelsea, that name is familiar. Chelsea Clinton? Her mother should be in jail. I thought she had a talk show. I swear, I was watching the TV, and I saw a show with Chelsea in it. I don’t think it was Chelsea Clinton, though. Or Caitlin Jenner. Have you seen my ice cream?”
