Prominent members of Ruth Bader Ginsburg's minion army of woke stans were duped into promoting "fake news" about the late Supreme Court justice, a sign that highly educated liberals are particularly vulnerable to misinformation that reinforces their ridiculous worldview.

The Babylon Bee, a confirmed "fake news" and conspiracy theory website, recently published an article suggesting that NBA players would don frilly lace collars to honor the passing of Ginsburg, who on Friday became the first woman to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol.

The story is false, but that didn't stop grief-stricken libs, whose cult-like reverence for "Notorious RBG" has raised concerns among independent mental health experts, from promoting it on social media.

Even prominent members of the elite media were duped by the right-wing conspiracy website, including New York Times reporter Robin Pogrebin and Elle editor in chief Nina Garcia. Other libs who promoted the fake story include 23andMe cofounder Linda Avey, CNN medical analyst Céline Gounder (who tweeted a fake quote from the fake story), and former Harvard president Drew Gilpin Faust.

Hundreds, perhaps even thousands, of non-elite libs joined in on the action. The #Resistance couldn't resist the urge to believe that the NBA had taken yet another symbolic step on the road to wokedom. They wanted to believe and lacked the intellectual curiosity to check the facts.
