The Wired article Alert: Don't Believe Everything You Read About the Migrant Caravan covers various claims from the right, with specific sources attributed: Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz, President Trump, and Vice President Pence. Additionally, YouTube videos and viral memes are mentioned.

Then it also says:
