Oh ffs... does it never end?I honestly wonder if this time it was him lying, or the daycare staff at the White House lying to him to prevent a tantrum because none of them wanted to deal with it and he bought it because the most easily manipulated gullible man-toddler on earth now controls the launch codes.

And yet more confirmation.... "Fake News" is a right wing thing. It is ESPECIALLY a Trump Supporter thing.

https://www.theguardian.com/technology/ ... -of-oxford

But there was a clear skew in who shared links from the 91 sites the researchers had manually coded as “junk news” (based on breaching at least three of five quality standards including “professionalism”, “bias” and “credibility”). “The Trump Support group consumes the highest volume of junk news sources on Twitter, and spreads more junk news sources, than all the other groups put together. This pattern is repeated on Facebook, where the Hard Conservatives group consumed the highest proportion of junk news.”

The latest actual Fake News from Fox News Land...


Apparently they're trying to whip people up into a frenzy over some "newly discovered FBI texts" that show Obama was interfering in the Clinton e-mail investigation. The evidence? A text from Sept 2, 2016 from an agent that says "Potus wants to know everything we're doing". Which OBVIOUSLY means "Barrack Obama wants a briefing on the ongoing Clinton e-mail investigation so he can interfere in it!!!!!"


The problem? The Clinton e-mail investigation was closed in July. Over a month before this.

It did not re-open until over a month after this.

Nobody was doing ANYTHING on the Clinton e-mail investigation in the beginning of Sept.

So this takes all of 5 seconds of critical thinking to realize is another absolute nothing. Most likely, given the timeframe, this was referring to briefing the POTUS on the status of Russian election interference... which would of course be a 100% appropriate thing to be briefing him on.

So of course Fox is blasting it out to all of their sheep viewers as a gigantic humongous scandal, and one of their dumbest most gullible viewers is already tweeting about it because of course he's watching Fox News during his "Executive Time":

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/sta ... 3569202176



EDIT: Correction. According to his published schedule he was supposed to start his Presidential Intelligence Brief at 11am.

Fox News aired a story about this at 11:08am.

He tweeted 2 mins later.

So are we supposed to conclude...


1. He's watching Fox News DURING his intelligence brief?
2. He doesn't really attend his intelligence brief, they just publish it on the schedule to make it look like he's doing president things?
3. Trump considers watching Fox New to BE his intelligence brief?


It disturbs me that I find all of those explanations plausible where Trump is concerned.

So Trump tweeted this today...

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/sta ... 6063523840

“Congressman Schiff omitted and distorted key facts” @FoxNews So, what else is new. He is a total phony!


The problem is what was actually said on Fox News moments before he tweeted that was:

"Congressman Schiff argues that the Republican memo omitted and distorted key facts”


Now let's set aside Trump either lying again or paying so little attention he only heard half the statement and then immediately tweeted to the entire country about it anyway in his capacity as president.


He's the PRESIDENT. And it's pretty damn clear he is getting his briefs on the subject matter of these memos on the FISA data from cable news. Either because he lacks the attention span to sit through or read a proper brief from the DOJ on them... or his people just aren't telling him things because the information would set him off.


Orrrrr.... it's ALL lies.


Pick which is worse. Go ahead.

Or he has 0 faith in the intelligence of his intelligence agencies. You know, the old chestnut about military intelligence being an oxymoron, with probable emphasis on moron. And I did read somewhere that the Foxxnews nabobs are actually campily talking directly to Trump like they assume he is listening to them.

Because it's been proven he is. That's where he gets most of his information he tweets to the country. Watching Fox and Friends or Sean Hannity.

He has hours and hours of "executive time" on his presidential schedule every day that it has leaked like a sieve means "Trump is watching TV".

And he is constantly tweeting out something some talking head on Fox News said 5 minutes before he tweeted it. (Including during times his schedule says he is supposed to be in the middle of his intelligence briefings).

Funny thing is, the Deep State would be conservative by it's very nature.
