New browser plug-in fact checks Trump's tweets for you

Trump needs many things before he heads into the Oval Office (cough cough, intelligence briefings), chief of which is a fact checker.

While some dedicated readers head to Politifact or Snopes to fact check his most outrageous statements, that's an extra step  many are unwilling to take. Over at The Washington Post, however, software developers recently created Chrome and Firefox extensions that fact check Trump's tweets for you.

The creators of the plug-in, RealDonaldContext, warn that the extension is still in development. Still, RealDonaldContext works. 

Instead of having to visit the Post directly, users can simply read a brief summary below the tweet. Some tweets do, however, redirect users back to the site. 

Whether or not Trump's core supporters, many of whom distrust mainstream media sources, will trust the Post extension is up for debate.

Still, anything that can be done to stop the plague of fake news — and "unpresidented" tweets — helps.

Here's a look at how it works.

No fact check needed: This is great.
