Fake – A fact, just differently

Fake – An alternative way of displaying a fact.

It’s a word which has been thrown around a lot lately, especially in the American media, but where does it come from?

The etymology of ‘fake’ is actually a rather short one, it was first coined by a D. Trump in 1945 where it was his first word word at the age of 1 and a half.  It’s meaning then was the same as it is now, and the word has not changed in this short time.
