How do they argue against the position "medieval history is fake"?

They produce paintings (which can be faked), documents (which can be faked) and bones (which can be faked, google 'Piltdown man').
The most reliable form of history is the oral tradition. Notice that most people cannot trace their heritage back by more than 150 years, which suggests that humanity is around 150 years old.

I would not argue against it. Whoever argues against that, does not know what he/she is talking about. They are being manipulated by fake.

I would not argue against it. Whoever argues against that, does not know what he/she is talking about. They are being manipulated by fake news. The Middle Ages did exist and also historical research about it and this research cannot be just generalized as fake.

Call the nurse and tell her you think 'they' might be cheeking their medication again.

Which example? (who are 'they'?)
Some people think their opinion should rewrite history.
Sometimes opposing factions have recorded history differently.
Generally speaking, history remains static until new evidence surfaces.

All those manuscripts from many stages of the long Middle Ages ( around 600 to 800 years, depending on historian). They can be dated by carbon dating in many cases, and by comparing their texts with other texts from other parts of Europe and beyond.
Do you think the Crusades are fake? The Mongol invasions as far as Vienna? Marco Polo's travels? The establishment of Russia? Vikings (many burials which can be carbon dated)? All those churches and cathedrals still in existence (e.g. Notre Dame)? They were not built just a few years ago.

In what aspects? Such as are you saying Henry the VIII did not exist? Or that he did not have people executed? Or that there never was a medieval period?

Things must go by left and right , if it were fake what is right and original then. As Real Gold can be tested by heat.
