That video was taken down, and a new one put up that featured Trump touching the "wounded vet."

They can't create a video without putting in a shot of ******* Russian military ribbons?

I bet Trump still has nightmares about touching that guy.

How does the truth ever get a chance to elbow past Trump's never-ending stream of 100 percent made-up crap? Is it a mistake to even try?

I'm surprised 'Melania' hasn't tweeted it's Fake News that she was in France with Donald and that he did call her to say he 'felt terribly' (terribly?) that he couldn't go to the cemetery.

Congresswoman blocked from touring mail facility by Postal Service police
Denial of her visit comes awfully close to an admission of guilt.

Surely someone has carte blanche authority to enter any postal facility. Maybe the Inspector General of the PO of his staff? The congresswoman needs to get such a person to go with her - unannounced - to a sorting center.

She has said that she followed the same procedures she followed on previous visits where she was routinely admitted. This time they apparently have something to hide. It's not likely that any postal official who works for the Trumper Postmaster General would help her.

Because she is a member of the House committee that oversees the Post Office, and those facilities serve her Congressional district.

Then maybe pass a law allowing them to set the terms of their visit.

It appears the post office had the power to deny this.

I don't know what Quinnipiac Poll he's talking about because the most recent one I've found says this from June 18:

I take not one bit of pleasure informing you that four or more boats sunk today at a Trump boat rally in Texas.

I take four (or more).

Mmm. Just like the detection facilities had the power to deny visitation by congressperson even after a law was passed that made that illegal? It's fairly likely to not be about legality.

I found some figures in Forbes.Com.
It is in the millions not tens of millions.

The site also points out that DJT haS not donated a single dollar to his campaign.

From trawling around various threads, it seems the boats gathered near the dam end of the main channel. When that mass of boats powered upstream all at once, that's when things went bad. Hudson Bend narrows the channel significantly and takes a long 180 degree turn.

Smaller boats clung to larger party barges to soak in the music and revelry and things compacted and backed up. Those in sleeker craft zipped to and fro, getting thrills while the traffic jam sorted out. Many reports of boats breaking speed vs. distance rules in general. Anyone out on a crowded holiday weekend (let's not forget the general activity level of the lake, too) will tell you, that is not the weekend for going really fast through the main channel of a "lake" (a narrow, windy, dammed river).

By the time the tail was finally entering the bend, well, physics took over.

But, psssh, science.

Tiny craft who had waited patiently as they should (larger, less maneuverable vessels have right of way) entered a roiling, turbulent mess and several were swamped.

Arkansas Bend has a constriction as well (typical for silt to build up on inside corners of river bends) and finally Point Venture features a tight hairpin turn.

I think it's a great metaphor. The ones with the biggest, swankiest or sleekest, fastest boats and no regard for rules infringing on their freedoms left a mess in their wake (literally) that ruined everyone else's day.

Yes, that's what getting on the Trump parade is like.

No one mentions that unkept promise. Trump was so rich that he would fund his own campaign and not be beholden to any donors.



I would bet he has a serious debt and cash flow problem.

No. Because I just don't vote for sexist or racist people.

And both Trump and Biden have shown both traits.

Again no. We have had presidents who would be lucky to tie their own shoe laces (Bush jnr eg) and ones that it would be pushing it they know who they are in the last year's in office (Reagan eg). The world didn't end.

Most people don't, but they will probably vote him in again. Which while slightly irritating in a "wtf?" Kind of way. I have to admit would be amusing personally, given the catastrophic meltdown I would get to watch on here and other media outlets.

@Lrihendry
There is no responsible way to minimize the significant damage that fake news presents to American society. They are indeed the enemy of the people!

New ad by the Biden camp suggesting President Trump will deplete Social Security by 2023, receives four Pinocchios from WAPO.
FACTS MATTER.

They are eaten alive by hate for our President & his voters!
They care more about illegal immigrants than they do for American citizens!
Look no further than CA re-directing money away from US citizens to illegal immigrants.
Thank you for putting America 1st Mr. President

Trump Tweets

Nancy Pelosi said she got “set up” by the owner (a very good one) of a beauty parlor. If so, how will she do in negotiations against President Xi of China, President Putin of Russia, or Kim Jong Un of North Korea. Not so well, I suspect, but far better than Joe Hiden’ would do!

When I worked for CNN I spent months producing special coverage of the conflict between Serbia and Kosovo, including the end of the Kosovo War. That was 22 years ago. Remarkable that this step toward economic cooperation is finally being taken, decades later. twitter.com/markknoller/st…

LIVE: “These things could only happen under a Trump administration … it’s happened in the Balkans, it’s happened in the Middle East.”
Ambassador Robert O' Brien talks about the “historic initiative” that has brought economic peace between Serbia and Kosovo

FACTS MATTER.

Although the ad was responding to statements Trump himself made, which were later walked back because he was talking out of his ass. The ad does ignore the part where aides explained that Trump wasn't talking about an actual plan when he said “On the payroll tax, we’ll be terminating the payroll tax. After I hopefully get elected, we’ll be terminating the payroll tax.”
