Employees were also given a list of news outlets such as The New York Times and the Washington Post and instructed to “get into an argument in order to inflame it, and rock the boat,” playing on religious sentiments against gays, for example.
The trolls were told not to raise Russia or Putin, since Americans don’t usually talk about them, but to provoke disorder.
They were told to say “everything was always bad” about U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and to put her down by referencing “her leaked emails, the fact that she’s wealthy.”
“The main message is: aren’t you tired, brother Americans, of the Clintons, how long have they been around?” the instructions said, according to Maxim.
The trolls were also ordered to watch the hit series “House of Cards” in English and had English lessons to correct their grammar.
