Trump's campaign manager says Trump didn't lie about Lester Holt because he didn't know the facts

When Donald Trump called the debate moderator a Democrat. He's actually a registered Republican

Donald Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway says the candidate didn’t lie when her erroneously labeled NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt, a registered Republican, as a Democrat. Holt will moderate Monday night’s presidential debate at Hofstra University. In an interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Conway said in order to lie, Trump would have had to know Holt’s party registration to begin with.

“I don’t know that he knew what Lester Holt’s voter registration was,” she said. “He didn’t lie. A lie would mean that he knew the man’s party registration.”


OMG: "he doesn't know what he doesn't know":

Chuck Todd: Trump should have invited a ‘grieving Benghazi mother’ to debate instead of Flowers

In a discussion with campaign consultants regarding the gamesmanship of Donald Trump inviting Bill Clinton’s former mistress to Monday night’s debate with Hillary Clinton, Meet The Press host Chuck Todd suggested the GOP nominee should have invited a “grieving” member from one of the Benghazi families.

Despite the fact that the Trump campaign has since said that Gennifer Flowers will not not be at the debate, host Todd asked Democratic consultant Stephanie Cutter how campaign advisers played head games with their candidate’s opponents.

Cutter agreed with Clinton’s choice of Trump-critic and billionaire Mark Cuban, but ripped Trump for his invitation to Flowers, saying the blustery New York businessman was “swimming in the sewer.”

“What Clinton and Trump are doing is trying to throw each other off their game,” Cutter remarked. “The difference is, Hillary Clinton is doing it with a legitimate businessman and also a celebrity. And, as John Podesta put it earlier on your show, Trump is just jumping right down in the sewer and swimming in it by inviting Gennifer Flowers.”


A sign for our time...


This headline from 1990 worth remembering if Trump brings Gennifer Flowers to the debate

The Trump marriage is on the rocks because, it is claimed, because Mrs. Trump found out about her husband's two year fling with a southern belle named Marla Maples.

When asked if he thought adultery was a sin, Mr. Trump- said to have met Ms. Maples in church - replied- "I don't think it's a sin but I don't think it should be done."

Asked if he would "do it," Mr. Trump said "I'll let you guess."

Rob Reiner: Trump’s campaign is ‘the last throes of the Civil War’ fighting for white nationalism

Appearing on MSNBC’s AM Joy with host Joy Reid, the two watched a mash-up of clips from Trump’s speeches interspersed with the bigoted ramblings of All in the Family’s Archie Bunker, before noting the almost word-for-word similarities between the presidential nominee and television racist.

Pointing out that racial issues that flared up in the ’60s and ’70s had become “submerged” since that time, Reiner took Trump to task for “giving a bullhorn to this racist idea.”

“I believe that what we’ve done, what we’ve seen, is the last throes of the Civil War,” Reiner explained. “We’re fighting the last battles, and Donald Trump is leading the way for white nationalism. And it’s sad because people are hanging on to this idea of a white America, immigrant-free America. It’s scary and sad, but I believe we will win it.”

Asked “What is the worst case scenario” of a Trump presidency, Reiner didn’t miss a beat.

“The worst case scenario is the Supreme Court,” Reiner replied. “People don’t talk about it all that much because it’s not a sexy issue. But the fact of the matter is, if he has one, two, three appointments, that could change the direction of this country in a scary way for thirty, forty years. And we’re talking about civil rights, voting rights. We’re talking about women’s rights, all of these things could be effected by the Supreme Court in a profound way.”

“As far as the economy is concerned, what makes you think he’s going to be able to handle the economy?” he continued. “He’s been a complete and utter failure as a businessman.”

Fox News host Bill Hemmer gripes: Why can’t men be ‘a little condescending’ to women on TV?

Fox News host Bill Hemmer claimed over the weekend that men faced reverse sexism because they could not get away with being “condescending” to women on television.

Hemmer’s remarks came during a panel discussion on Fox News after Jessica Tarlov argued that Hillary Clinton has a right to criticize Donald Trump for being “bigoted towards minorities and women” at Monday night’s presidential debate.

“Or even the comments about Mexicans or Judge (Gonzalo P. Curiel) or the disabled reporter,” Tarlov continued. “I could go on obviously.”

“You are!” conservative lobbyist Matt Schlapp exclaimed.

“Well, you’ve said a lot too,” Tarlov scoffed.

Hemmer interrupted the discussion to make a point: “You see, that exchange right there is just something — just pause for a moment here.”

“We work in television,” Hemmer opined thoughtfully. “And I’ve always thought that when a man and a woman is on television, a woman can be sarcastic or even, perhaps, a little condescending toward a man and it’s okay. But a man can never do that to a woman and get away with it.”

“Did I fall into a trap?” Tarlov laughed.
