Ok, I grant you there is no necessary linkage. But…

(1) Facebook’s cofounder has pledged to give $20 million “to political groups that support Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton,” according to the Washington Post.

But the word– the word which was delivered within 5 minutes of the request’s submission–was no.
