America: The Trump Era

Civics, civilly. Post lifetime is 6 months.

In light of CNN's less than accurate( and frankly embarrassing ) mis-reporting on Trump of late, it seems pretty clear to me that its part of an anti trump agenda.

Does this sit well with you?

Wouldn't you prefer honest reportage over CNN's incessant fake news?

Or if I am wrong and your democracy hasn't gone to fudge in a basket, what would you say is the cause?

Because without a free and independent media .....

I'll add you to the I don't understand the question... column.

Any more pearler responses out there?

The Fourth Estate is seen as pretty important in the rest of the world, yet the US is more concerned with how many Diet cokes Trump drinks in a day than it is sincere reporting.

Maybe you don't think its necessary or important?

PS.

X, the undisputed EB king of reporting incorrect and false news, is complaining about the supposed reporting of incorrect and false news.

You really cannot make this shite up.

Makes about as much sense as the woman I saw on the news tonight from Alabama, who was asked if she believes the accusations against Roy Moore and she said “I don’t believe anything that I don’t see with my own eyes”, yet she sure as hell proclaims her intense belief in Jesus. Yeah? How many times have you seen Jesus with your own eyes, sweetie?

Derp.

Might have something to do with our current President. But I supposed you'd disagree and relieve him of any and all blame. Right?

My guess is the Trump's full throated endorsement of Roy Moore will result in a 48.7 to 44.3 victory in today's election in Alabama.

It would be neat to not elect this child molester to the senate. In prison he would be killed by inmates for these accusations but instead we might give him a senate seat. Wtf.

I'm hoping Alabama's voters will seize the opportunity to do the right thing instead of confirming that the state is America's inbred, backward, welfare-dependent nephew.

Having seen numerous interviews with Moore supporters on TV the past few days, I think expecting them to do the right thing is asking a lot. A majority of them could care less....most say the women are are liars even if they weren't, his republican agenda is more important. They frequently invoke Jesus in support of Moore which just blows my mind.
