I'm a huge fan of the TV comedy known as "The Office," and I am especially fond of the character Jim Halpert, played by actor John Krasinski as the love interest of receptionist Pam Beesley, the nemesis of beet farmer turned paper salesman Dwight Shrute, and the "best friend" of his boss, Michael Scott.

But sadly, Krasinski recently took a questionable role as a Libyan contractor caught up in the violence at Benghazi in the film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. The director, Michael Bay, is famous for movies full of explosions such as Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It almost sounds like a joke from The Office, a spin-off of Michael Scott's "Threat Level Midnight." But the folks who made this are serious, man!

Just the title with the keyword "Benghazi" is enough to make true conservatives line up for tickets, right?It's like clickbait come to life for the far-right conspiracy crowd.

And indeed, many of these conservatives sat in dark theaters seething with anger towards their own Dwight Shrute - Hillary Clinton - then took out their phones and tweeted about it. Take that, Hillary!!! Only, you know, Ted Nugent also felt a need to threaten her life, and President Obama, also too.

But not so fast - one ex-CIA Director says the movie is made-up fiction:

But whether the movie is true or not is irrelevant if it tanks at the box office. And by all accounts and measurements of cinematic achievement 13 Hours is a BOMB, in more than one way.

And of course this: The Trump
