If like a huge number of Americans you get your news from social media, you’re likely to have seen a story this week claiming that pop star Taylor Swift is a proud Trump supporter. The report is completely fabricated—as is the image of Swift wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.

Wiz Khalifa was arrested last night at the Los Angeles airport for refusing to get off of his hoverboard. Yes, a hoverboard, just like Marty McFly.
