"The people" that voted for Twitler were an ignorant or gullible or hypocritical(in the case of the "Christian"[sic] vote) lot or all three.
And theey were a minority of voters."


Now that first sentence of yours there Greg F was exactly why Donald Trump won the 2016 Presidential Election - "The people" in sufficient numbers throughout the individual states were pig sick of people such as yourself - they voted for change - after two terms of Obama the American electorate found out that "Yes we can" was in actual fact "Well no we can't" under the usual two step.

As to popular vote? That is not the system and it does not alter the fact that Donald Trump won the popular vote in more individual states than Hilary Clinton.

"I'm also surprised when the fact that he's [President Trump] carrying out the things he said he would is regarded as in some way virtuous. The things he said he'd do were all bloody awful. [In your opinion but obviously not to the voters in far more States than voted for Clinton] If I promised to cut off the bollocks of all male prisoners, pour encourager les autres, and carried it out, you wouldn't exactly be praising me, would you?" - idiotic contribution by Steve Shaw

Only thing is Shaw people did vote for Trump - Nobody in their right mind would ever vote you into any significant office (Even to clean it). Stick to wildflowers, places you've been, glasses of wine that you have enjoyed, meals you've cooked - I suspect that you do know something about those.

San Bernardino, Orlando, Paris, Nice. These are among the list of 78 unreported and under-reported terrorist incidents submitted by the Trump administration. Incidents that got so much coverage I only had to mention the cities' names and you knew exactly what I was talking about. Yet they were "under-reported"....

I give up on this thread. There's no way we can keep up with the amount of lies coming out of trump and his supporters. Unreported massacres in Europe? Fuck off.

If you believe that shit, you get what you deserve. Of course, other people who don't deserve it will get it too.

I somehow think it is ironic that JFK had quite a time with Maralyn Monre and even Marlene Dietrich et al apparently without us knowing properly. But Twitler is probably being watched on this subject rather more closely.

A tactic I am sure he thinks is distracting the media from the fact that he is doing it (actually) to the country (or should that be countries?).

Just saying.

I hadnt expected to get to such a critical point so soon, but Trump has appealed the judge's decision and the appeal has been denied. So now Trump has to accept his position has limitations, which is not really in his nature, or take on the whole legal system. Watch this space ...

"I'm surprised that every time Spicer justifies some outrage by saying that it's what Trump campaigned on, and what 'the American people' elected him to do, that some reporter doesn't point out that more people voted against than for him. They don't, though ...."

Agreed. And I'm also surprised when the fact that he's carrying out the things he said he would is regarded as in some way virtuous. The things he said he'd do were all bloody awful. If I promised to cut off the bollocks of all male prisoners, pour encourager les autres, and carried it out, you wouldn't exactly be praising me, would you?

Isn't Spicer an arrogant, insulant, whiney, not so little brat?
I would wait in line to slap his face, which is something I haven't done since I was 10.

I just got back from shopping where a fight broke out in a parking lot between a white haired bigot who told 5 black folks to get out of the country. Fists yelling thrown cans...

The police let the white guy go on self defense grounds. Not so the black women.

This sentiment goes down to the kids. At soccer matches if one team has more Spanish speaking kids the other team chants USA USA

If Tromp feels comfortable gunning for the media, he thinks he has other outlets for his messages.

His problemo is that: Amazon, Apple, Micro$oft and Google are all revealing their willingness to stand up to Twitler. Farcbook has not revealed its hand, or has it? I keep getting National Parks type posts that show no other author. And I haven't friended them. Now how does that happen? Think it through..............

I laughed when I heard that "so-called judge" comment, then quickly realised that it was bloody unfunny. It was an attack on the rule of law just as bad as the Daily Mail's "enemies of the people" attack on our high court judges when they found against Theresa May's effort to circumvent the sovereignty of parliament. Be vigilant, yanks.

About 75% of what comes from Tromp is either wrong, spin or a lie but that is from my perspective. So much is BS reporters never seem to catch even half of the falsehoods.

By interjecting lies into a stream of disjointed statements they are mostly overlooked. They do not need to be official alt facts.

For example he has interjected the statement that " no one holds Government with more disdain than Barak Obama "

No one challenged the statement even though Barak was about the art of the possible.

I know the hypnosis in propaganda, you know all the alternative facts and the base believes him and forgives Trump being Tromp.

In a blast from the past reminiscent of The Gulf of Tonkin, "White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer asserted at Thursday's press briefing that Iran had attacked a U.S. naval vessel..."

Here's the story.

(This Spicer person must be the most inept Press Secretary ever. He's tasked with doling out information, yet he seems to always be the least informed person in the room.)

I thought it might be an idea for us to record the "Alternative Truths" that is coming out of the Trump camp as in years to come this might make for interesting reading. Seeing as the many eyes of Catters are better than just the one pair of eyes, here's the thread. Post links where possible for future researchers to follow.

Finally, if you want to quibble about the veracity of these truths all well and good, just go and do it on a dedicated thread please. We're recording them for posterity.
