Correction: Single-source copy pasta'd tweets. And it's such a rich vein of face-palming gob-smacking train-crash material that it fuels itself.

Apart from the truly lunatic postscript revealing his reversion to his three-year-old true self...

It's going to be hilarious if the FACT CHECKING reveals that (a) everything the candidates says is true, and (b) what they say is about how ******* bad at his job Trump is.

Maybe it's better that he IS on AF1 and on his way to Asia again.

My goodness. Having a bad day, prestige? What next? A rant against what font is used?
I suppose I could have trimmed the stock photo footer but I fail to see how that would affect anything. Well, other than to give you less to be petty about.

Well, Trump and his fellow travelers are so simple, sometimes, that's all you need. It's not like the pro America crowd is arguing against an intelligent, well read opponent.

Hey, it's easier to whine about the response than it is to defend the statement by the President.

Thank you @LindseyGrahamSC

The Republican Senate just passed bipartisan humanitarian assistance for our Southern Border, 84-8! In addition to aid, Congress must close the catastrophic loopholes that are driving the Crisis. We must end incentives for Smuggling Children, Trafficking Women, and Selling Drugs.

You think Trump apologetics is somehow a higher level of discourse?

Sometimes memes, images and emojis are quite succinct.

If President Donald Trump is giving advice about how to FACT CHECK things, then reaction JPGs are an appropriate response.


We are talking about the guy who asserted that the sound of wind-powered electric generators causes cancer.

We are talking about the guy who still claims more people attended his inauguration than attended President Obama’s inauguration.

We are talking about the guy who still claims he won the popular vote once the 3-7 million illegal voters are subtracted out. Even though no Republican governor, attorney general, or secretary of state can find even tens of thousands of illegal votes cast.

We are talking about the guy who referred to Apple CEO Tim Cook as Tim Apple. And then he tried to dismiss his gaff by claiming that he really said “Tim Cook Apple,” but the FAKE NEWS media falsely asserted that he didn’t say it. And the next day he changed his story saying "I quickly referred to Tim + Apple as Tim/Apple as an easy way to save time & words. The Fake News was disparagingly all over this, & it became yet another bad Trump story!" [aside: at least one of those two excuses must be a lie]

We are talking about a guy who dictated a letter in which he claimed he was (at age 70) “the healthiest person to ever run for the presidency” and then paid his doctor to sign his name to the letter.

We are talking about the man who knows more about everything than anyone in the world:

Courts: "I know more about courts than any human being on Earth." (November 2015.)
Politicians: "I understand politicians better than anybody."
Trade: "Nobody knows more about trade than me." (March 2016.)
The U.S. government system: "[N]obody knows the system better than I do." (April 2016.)
Renewable energy: "I know more about renewables than any human being on Earth." (April 2016.)
Taxes: "I think nobody knows more about taxes than I do, maybe in the history of the world." (May 2016.)
Money: "I understand money better than anybody." (June 2016.)
Infrastructure: "[L]ook, as a builder, nobody in the history of this country has ever known so much about infrastructure as Donald Trump." (July 2016.)
Technology: "Technology — nobody knows more about technology than me." (December 2018.)
Drones: "I know more about drones than anybody. I know about every form of safety that you can have." (January 2019.)
That guy.

You want us to take that guy seriously when he gives advice on fact checking?
[not a rhetorical question]

not a fan of memes in serious discussions.

But then, Trump cannot be taken seriously on anything, since not even he knows when much he is deliberately lying.

Interesting that you don't think there is any value in posting official USA government statements in the USA politics section.

Trump apologists take the Tweets they like and ignore anything that contradicts the apologies.

I guess that there's some kind of twisted logic to it. Apparently the woman who was shot has been determined to be the instigator of the conflict which led to her being shot (which is also presumably why a grand jury did not indict the shooter).

I suppose the lawmakers of Alabama see this as a backdoor way to get an abortion

Ever since the passage of the Super Predator Crime Bill, pushed hard by @JoeBiden, together with Bill and Crooked Hillary Clinton, which inflicted great pain on many, but especially the African American Community, Democrats have tried and failed to pass Criminal Justice Reform...

....They came to me asking for help, and I got Criminal Justice Reform passed, with help from both Republicans and Democrats. Many said that nobody but President Trump could have done this. All previous administrations failed. Please ask why THEY failed to the candidates!

This is one of the most sickening things I've ever heard of. I hope it attracts national if not international attention and that people lose their jobs over this insane perversion of justice. I predict the whole thing will be swept under the rug within 48 hours tops, but recall efforts should be launched ASAP against the D.A., chief of police, mayor and whoever else can be called to account for this disgraceful attack on sanity and decency. Times like these Travis doesn't seem so far off the mark. (Mods: Hope it's OK to say this; if not delete this sentence.)

I'm not quite sure it belongs in this thread, though.

I look forward to speaking with Prime Minister Modi about the fact that India, for years having put very high Tariffs against the United States, just recently increased the Tariffs even further. This is unacceptable and the Tariffs must be withdrawn!

I keep saying, these tweets are aimed at reassuring his supporters that the blacks are simply too stupid to vote for him, and they're not in any way racist.

Which, if you still support Dolt 45, I feel pretty safe assuming that you're a white supremacist. He signed the First Step law because of Kushner's father, not for black people. It failed under Obama due to GOP resistance, and Dolt 45's administration has reversed everything Holder did that would had far more impact.

Those comments will have zero impact on President Trump’s support because (1) most of his supporters are unaware that he said them, (2) most of the rest don’t care, (3) many of them think “she’s not my type” is a relevant and appropriate argument in establishing one’s defense in a rape accusation, and (4) they believe an exit strategy is unnecessary because we would, in President Trump’s words, obliterate them.

After all, they might ask, did we need an exit strategy as we marched into Nazi Germany? Of course, even those with a cursory knowledge of history knows we did need an exit strategy.


ETA
I would be happy to eat crow on this matter, but I am pretty certain that if the support numbers have not shifted in the past two years, we are not going to have one in the next two years.

I would agree. It's highly unlikely that support for the traitor would go down. Roughly 40% of the US electorate have decided that treason is a-ok as long as it's done in the name of white supremacy, and they ain't changin' their minds fo' nufin.

Trump Accuses Mueller of Fictional Criminal Activity

https://edition.cnn.com/2019/06/26/p...mes/index.html

Just his usual daily ranting, I'm sure. Totally a coincidence that Mueller just agreed to honor the subpoena from the House.

Context -- it was accompanied by a(n altered) video of the lights going out during the debate last night. The comment was intended to be sarcastic, I think.

...wait, why is that funny? For the 5,000th time it's a) relative to the thread as Trump is saying it and b) primetime *******-tery.

Thank you @LindseyGrahamSC

The Republican Senate just passed bipartisan humanitarian assistance for our Southern Border, 84-8! In addition to aid, Congress must close the catastrophic loopholes that are driving the Crisis. We must end incentives for Smuggling Children, Trafficking Women, and Selling Drugs.
It's been barely two years.
