"You can't not be a racist for 69 years and then run for President and be a racist".

Ummm hmmm.

An Oral History of Trump’s Bigotry
His racism and intolerance have always been in evidence; only slowly did he begin to understand how to use them to his advantage.

Best thing you’ve posted in years
I had to unhide his last post to see what was so great... who edits a 7 word post 4x?
Couldn't resist could ya?!! Just like the others who say they've blocked me, yet keep replying...

Someone with sketchy reception, sitting on a tropical island on a sunny Sunday, sipping cocktails and scoring quadruple bonus rubles from my handlers for every person who publicly moans about my hardcore trolling...thanks!

Another great example of the propaganda at play in Syria.

Check out one of Trumps Pastors' reaction @ 3:44. One creepy dude.

Earlier comment of "I love your eyes' means he probably wants them in a jar on his bedside locker.

BREAKING: Roger Stone Insists Russia Hacked the DNC

https://www.emptywheel.net/2019/06/03/b ... d-the-dnc/

But for now, I just want to note that after insisting to Judge Amy Berman Jackson that Russia didn’t hack the DNC, Stone lawyers Grant Smith and Robert Buschel are arguing to Judge John Koeltl that Russia did hack the DNC.

I wonder what Donald Trump will say when he discovers his rat-drymounter has given up on the hoaxes claiming Russia didn’t do the hack?

Some of the comments are pure gold...

"Jeebus, he’s stretching black’s capacity to make him look smaller. There’s only so much one color can do."

"He can’t even get a tailor who doesn’t hate him. I mean, Christ, he looks awful in everything. The tuxedo is just pure mean-spirited comedy, cherry on top."

"His resting face always looks like he wandered into a public library without his pants on looking to order a fried chicken sandwich."

A Fort Worth, TX, teacher was put on administrative leave and could lose her job for sending a series of anti-immigrant tweets to President Donald Trump in what she mistakenly believed was a private conversation, the Washington Post reported today.

Kim Hyok Chol, North Korea's special envoy to the U.S., was executed by firing squad in March for being "won over by the American imperialists to betray the supreme leader", according to the Chosun Ilbo.

Don't you like how all these executed N Korean officials keep popping up alive after the fact?

America really does lead the world in making shite up. Incredible.

Gee, no fudge, Elmer!

The newspaper is called Chosun Ilbo, a far -right newspaper which has a long history of talking fudge and creating false stories about NK.

Its source? One, single, unnamed, unidentified person.

Any corroboration of such a big story, given this senior, high ranking guy sat opposite trump at the WH last year?

Nah, what for...fits our narrative ?!!

So the word of one anonymous person became the Truth and media ran with this fake news....

Any mea culpa's or official retractions from the media 4 days later when said dude popped up a few seats from Kim at a musical concert??

None.

CNN, NYT, AP and Reuters ran new stories that made light of the now old news, but not one official retraction, something that is the norm.

In the four days it took to "correct" the story, literally millions of people around the world were sold this story via tv, social media etc.

I wonder how many heard it turned out it was all a lie?

And given how many times its happened, you'd think these newspapers would learn that verifying these stories before publishing them would be the professional thing to do, even as more simple-minded folk on here see no issue... :roll:

Deceiving the public to reinforce how bad Kim is? And having the public see nothing wrong( ...ala the moron above? )

Priceless.
