I was going to do another fact check but became quickly overwhelmed. My advice is just assume everything this administration says is BS. This is why I choose to do so few of these kind of posts It's frustrating and exhausting. Once again I will state with confidence-- at some point all this nonsense is going to hit the fan. My hope it will not be too late for the U.S. when it does.
(1) Donald was the one who issued an executive order ending DACA.
(2) Democrats have lost congressional control since 2011.
The Rob Porter resignation scandal. It's Obama's fault.. HUH?
According to Sebastian Gorka on Justice with Judge Jeanine-- the Obama administration deliberately "gummed" up the FBI's approval process to make Trump look bad.
Mediaite.com: Kellyanne Conway Says this about Sen. Gillibrand,...
“I don’t need a lecture from Kirsten Gillibrand on anybody else who protected and defended and harbored a sitting president who had sexual relations in the Oval Office and was impeached for lying. I don’t need a lecture from her or anybody else.”".
Problem is according to this article --- "Gillibrand was first elected to Congress in 2006 and didn’t actually get to Washington until January 2007, years after Clinton was impeached over the Lewinsky affair."
Trump Constantly Tweets About the "Failing New York Times"
The New York Times posted-- "Buoyed by the growth in digital subscriptions, total revenue for the year increased 8 percent, to $1.7 billion, and 10 percent in the fourth quarter, to $484 million. The Times Company had more than 2.6 million digital-only subscriptions,"
The sins of a bloated, unaccountable government--
"A litany of problems were documented by WND in 2015, indicating a whopping $8.5 trillion that was unaccounted for by the military since 1996...
And this from Forbes in December 2017: “On July 26, 2016, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) issued a report ‘Army General Fund Adjustments Not Adequately Documented or Supported.’ The report indicates that for fiscal year 2015 the Army failed to provide adequate support for $6.5 trillion in journal voucher adjustments.”
I believe if we were somehow able to eliminate each and every "non-military lines" of spending it still wouldn't be enough.
I have at least another half a dozen of other nonsense...
Trump, FOX News and this White House puts out nearly everyday. Some would include how Donald thought the Democrat's 10 page memo was too long or that some how U.S. intelligence got snookered into paying a Russia operative $100,000 for dirt on Trump. Something the CIA denies emphatically
It's one thing for FOX News and Trump to spin stories. Entirely another for FOX News to outright lie knowing Trump will buy into what they're pandering. Never before in history has a President taken the word of half baked TV commentators over and against his own advisers, Justice Department. FBI, members of congress, U.S. intelligence operatives and half of the American people he's sworn to represent.
Folks we're in a very bad place. Someone who runs the country impulsively by what he only sees on TV demonstrates a person incapable of thinking on his own. Especially only one channel to exclusion of all others. PBS does plenty of informative programs. So does CNN's Anthony Bourdain when he visits other countries and BBC's documentaries. Maybe these all seem too complicated to digest for a simple mind like his.
What we have here is a old thickheaded billionaire who's been enjoying living in a rich man's bubble through out his life Someone unwilling to spend more then a handful of weekends at the White House leaving everything up to everyone else to figure stuff out. In other words what we're stuck with is a rich kid who never grew up.
A Challenge For My Readers
Is there anything Trump does or says which would have been acceptable if Obama did or said what Trump has?
