(CNN)UPDATE: Both Donald Trump and his campaign staffer Dan Scavino have deleted their tweets.

"A lie will go round the world while truth is pulling its boots on," London preacher Charles Haddon Spurgeon said in 1855, well before the invention of the Internet.
    A case in point just popped up.
    Let's explore.
    1) GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump tweeted at 2:28 pm ET Tuesday: "Unreal! Highly respected Senator Tom Coburn- said this about Cruz: https://t.co/2WswDhyPQD"
    Trump repeated the comments during an event in South Carolina as well.
    "Did you see the senator from Oklahoma that just came out with a statement? He came out with such a strong statement that Ted Cruz is dishonest -- he's a Republican! I've never seen a human being that lies so much," Trump said.
    2) What was the quote? Trump provided a link to a tweet stating the following: "He is, without a doubt, one of the most dishonest people in DC." @TomCoburn on Ted Cruz bit.ly/1oGZqI6Scavino
    It should be noted: that 12:21 pm ET tweet is from Dan Scavino, the Trump campaign's director of social media.
     
    3) Here's where it gets shaky: Scavino provided a link to a story on a liberal website "Forward Progressives" from October 18, 2015.
    In that story, a progressive writer pens the following: "I've made no secret of my total disdain for Sen. Ted Cruz. He epitomizes everything that's wrong with the Republican party. He is, without a doubt, one of the most dishonest people in Washington and, in my opinion, a complete sociopath."
    THIS is where the "one of the most dishonest people in DC" quote comes from -- not from former Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Oklahoma.
    4) Let us now, just for kicks, see where this all originated.
    The liberal writer quotes former Sen. Tom Coburn and links to a story in the Dallas Morning Newsfrom October 16, 2015.
    5) The Dallas Morning News had taken the quotes from BuzzFeed from October 15, 2015.
    6) BuzzFeed took it from Coburn in an interview with Pete Dominick on Sirius XM talking about the "Cruz Effect." Coburn criticized Cruz for "creat(ing) greater disappointment in the hinterlands" in terms of pledging to stop Obamacare, etc, "because you gave them a false hope, knowing that you couldn't accomplish it, but it was about yelling, and screaming, and waving the flag."
    At no point during any of this did Coburn say the initial quote about Cruz.
    The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    We may first see them on the runway, but the trends that truly stick with us all live in one place: our Google search bar. It's where we ask our deepest, darkest fashion questions — "Are cropped flares really a thing?," "Does anyone actually like baby bags?" — and hope to find answers.

    Last year, the search engine finally recognized the power that lies in its records, introducing a fashion report that documents which trends are in and out, according to search volume. In 2015, we saw the popularity of one-shoulder and peplum dresses fall, making way for tulle skirts and jogger pants. (This was the year of athleisure, after all.) For 2016, Google's calling out items we've already seen pop up in our closets — and those we could already sense falling to the back shelves. 

    This time around, the company expanded the scope of its research to include the U.S. and the U.K., looking into the top searched-for apparel categories between May 2014 and May 2016. In a somewhat surprising turn, some early-aughts trends appear to be on the way out, even though the '90s are very much in the zeitgeist right now (the two are close cousins, after all, and had been trending together). Google observed a steady decline in interest in drop-crotch pants, see-through clothes, acid-wash jeans, and babydoll dresses. It predicts asymmetrical skirts and waist trainers will experience a similar drop (despite constant Kardashian endorsement) over the next few years — something to maybe keep in mind during your next closet purge.

    The search engine grouped its findings into three main stories: military-inspired (think bomber jackets and biker pants), free-spirited (in line with the easy-going nature of off-the-shoulder tops), and ready-to-go (think one-pieces and rompers). Then, there are the specifics: Google identified a set of trends it calls "rising stars," which have seen a spike in interest over the past few months but might not have staying power. These include off-the-shoulder topsbodysuits, and bralettes. The lace-up top was also highlighted in this category for the U.S. market; for the U.K., it was the co-ord. On the opposite end of the spectrum are the "falling stars" — pieces that have enjoyed their moment and are now losing steam when it comes to Google searches. (Suede skirts, we're looking at you.)

    Google does point to certain categories it considers "safe bets" — both because they've seen more user interest and because they have seasonal potential to come back. In 2016, biker pants (skinny-fit trousers with ribbed and moto elements) and ripped jeans are looking to be a pretty solid choice, if you trust American and British Google users. The search engine also predicts bomber jackets, coatigans (a coat/cardigan hybrid), and shirt dresses will become even more ubiquitous as the year rolls on. (It's no surprise, then, that these trends are already featured prominently in Zara's fall '16 offering.) 

    The report, which you can read in full here, details the rise of each trend and corresponding item down to the color, fabric, and pattern that's proven to be most popular. Here's to going about your fall shopping in the most informed way, ever.
