There is so much news afoot, so to keep apace of it all I will posit Head-lines and sources, maybe a few excerpts, and present a well-rounded, full-balanced diet of pertinent news…sometimes with humor, because even Mary Poppins knows that a “spoon full of sugar makes the medicine go down…”
Let’s commence, shall we?
FIRST UP, THIS ANALYSIS FROM JONAH GOLDBERG VIA BILL KRISTOL:
Trumpism is “a psychological phenomenon.”
MORE FROM BILL KRISTOL…HE SAYS WHAT THE VAST MAJORITY BELIEVE:
They warned me if I didn’t vote for Trump we’d get a president who would credulously believe and cringingly praise horrible dictators:
Trump says North Korea’s Kim Jong-un has been “very open and very honorable” and he hopes they can “do something very special” together.
HOPE “GOLDEN SHOWERS” PUTIN ISN’T THE JEALOUS TYPE…J/S…
THE ONCE “CONSERVATIVE” MEDIA AND NEWS SOURCES ARE NOTHING BUT “MIRRORS AND MAGNIFYING GLASSES” THAT REFLECT AND MAGNIFY (LAUD) LITTLE LYING, LIBERAL, DONNIE EL TRUMPO, WITNESS:
[MINI TWITTER STORM ENSUES.]
Why Laura Ingraham is screwed:
When an advertiser buys a campaign from a network, they are guaranteed a certain number of people will watch it.
If there is a shortfall, the network runs “makegoods” up until that guaranteed audience is reached.
It is common practice, to have these “makegoods” run in time slots they have bought or in Primetime to “make” “good” on not hitting the guarantee the network promised.
Note: this is NOT unique to Fox News, every single network does this.
The shortfall of the audience is reported as loss revenue in a Media Math equation.
What is killing Laura, is not the sponsors who have abandoned her show, that hurts. No question.
What is killing her, is that advertisers will not even take these “makegoods” in Primetime.
That hour in Primetime is essential to write down all those shortfalls. Fox News has approached every single one of their advertisers to see if they can put these “makegoods” in her show.
Every single one of them said no. That’s why Laura is screwed. Fin.
THIS is a DIRECT REFLECTION of Trump…all he touches DIES!
Ironic, given that he wanted to “jail” Hillary Clinton for using a personal email server.
President Trump ramps up his personal cell phone use https://cnn.it/2HTflxN
But the difference is personal CELL PHONE not personal EMAIL SERVER. BIG difference. HUGE. Fake news folks, fake news. LOL!
@realDonaldTrump fails again & again to recognize that the big leak in his WH is his narcissistic compulsion to talk about himself to people he thinks are “friends” who then sell their stories gleefully.
Putin wants updates often
So……you think he knows NONE OF IT IS SECURE?
Ms. Tina……tweeted his reality from the Get, including, he has the IQ of drywall, and isn’t even half literate. Via those who were THERE, he was too dumb to learn how a CASINO WORKS..
TRUMP OPENLY AND ENTHUSIASTICALLY SUPPORTS AND PROMOTES THIS, WHY? BECAUSE TRUMP IS A DEMOCRAT/LIBERAL.
FROM TWITTER PATRIOT, CHERI JACOBUS:
Trump lied to the FBI Director in attempt to obstruct justice
Flight records show Trump spent night in Russia on 2013 trip, contradicting what he told Comey: report http://hill.cm/3gMlWmD
He lies ALL the time.
DT lies about lying about the lies he tells to cover-up lies he told that contradict previous lies about lies.
Simply: Lips move=LIES.
HERE’S A BIGLY!!!
He helped get OJ off by attacking the investigators and law enforcement. Now he’s trying the same strategy for Trump.
Alan Dershowitz: Maybe Mueller should be investigated
“who I don’t speak to and have nothing to do with..”
-Trump regarding, apparently, a good, but forgotten, friend, Maggie Haberman.
BUT…like all things Trump, THE TRUTH IS SEEN ABOVE. Here’s the article on Trump’s rambling rant(s):
Trump attacks New York Times journalist over Michael Cohen article
Trump lashed out on Twitter after Maggie Haberman contributed to a story suggesting Cohen might cooperate with federal investigators
NOT ALL AMERICANS WERE DELUDED ENOUGH TO BUY THE LIE THAT TRUMP WAS “THE ONLY ONE WHO COULD FIX IT ALL…BECAUSE HE WOULD MAKE THE BEST DEALS…GET ONLY THE BEST PEOPLE…AND USE EXTREME VETTING…AND HAS A LOT OF WORDS, ALL THE BEST WORDS…THAT COME FROM A VERY GOOD BRAIN…OF A STABLE GENIUS…”
We now know Trump is proud of his pathological lying. That makes him much more dangerous than we thought
A leaked audio recording of Trump recalling his talks with the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at a private fundraising event in Missouri revealed that Trump isn’t deluded; he knows what he’s doing, and he enjoys it…
Donald Trump tells lies. That’s hardly news, of course. And certainly not fake news. According to The Washington Post, which is assiduously keeping count, the 45th US President has uttered or tweeted more than 2,000 false or misleading statements since swaggering into the White House. That’s an average of around five a day.
But does Trump spew this waterfall of lies knowingly? Or could it be that he is just chronically ignorant and obscenely intellectually lazy? Or is it perhaps a case of cognitive impairment, as suggested in a recent book? Is Trump mentally unable to distinguish between fantasy and reality?
A leaked audio recording of Trump recalling his talks with the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at a private fundraising event in Missouri gave us a pretty strong steer on this.
Trump bragged to his audience that he asserted something to the Canadian leader that he simply didn’t know was true or not. “I said, ‘Wrong, Justin, you do [have a trade surplus with the US].’ I didn’t even know … I had no idea. I just said, ‘You’re wrong.’”
In other words, Trump has admitted that he lies knowingly and shamelessly. Indeed, the Missouri audio demonstrates that he’s not merely shameless, but proud of his untruths.
Is there anything more to be said about Trump’s estrangement from truthfulness?
Yes. And it’s the fact that Trump is a political liar. The lies are not simply intended to deceive; they are, as the Russian dissident Masha Gessen has argued, a brute assertion of the primacy of power over truth, of a conception of power that simply does not recognise the authority of truth.
Trump says something that is untrue, that people around him know is untrue, that he himself knows to be untrue, and which he knows they know is untrue. Why? As a statement of his authority and the absolute nature of it. As the Missouri audio also reveals, the job of his aides, when a lie is told by their master, is to locate some evidence that his assertions are, in fact, correct.
By forcing his spokespeople and subordinates to repeat, defend or rationalise his blatant falsehoods in public, he destroys their own reputations and their own sense of self-respect. This may, or may not, be intended as a means of binding them more closely to him. Although given the rate at which personnel have been departing the Trump administration, it has arguably not been particularly effective in that regard…
TO ALL THIS LET ME SAY TRUMP MAKES EVERYTHING “PIZZA”…
A PIZZA JUNK. (Piece of)…
FREE “EXTRA BONUS”!!!!
Yep, “Global Warming” my eye!!!
