Jill Stein is on MSNBC lying through her teeth about Russia.

She is claiming that Vladdy and his goons just happened to drop in late in their dinner, unexpectedly. But...in the picture, Vlad and his goons all have their own place settings and the table is perfectly spaced for each diner. Bullshit that he happened by unexpectedly. She's also claiming RT is no different than BBC or Canadian television. She is rabidly defending Russia and RT.

Then I heard her on TV for the first time and completely and intensely disliked her.

I am surprised that she is even on any major network. I consider Stein to be a crank not much different from Alex Jones. But this era seems to be a springtime for cranks so I guess this is to be expected.

so many here were sending money to support her when she was calling for a recount after the presidential election. Totally scammed and a waste of money that is probably going to be used against us again at some point.

she has her weak points in political interviews. I happen to think she's getting better.

I love her pitbull attitude when she talks taxes and financials, though.

But they're both in finance. They aren't strong in politics. This would have been a better interview with someone like Rachel Maddow. But no righty would ever dare sit down with Maddow.

17. Didn't hear the interview but . . .

but read a summary. Sounded as if she's claiming the Clinton campaign deliberately dragged her into all this, an act of revenge for siphoning so many votes from HRC and giving the Trumpster his electoral college win.

I's innocent, I tell you. I's innocent.

And that picture of Stein at Pooty's table? Don't believe your lying eyes.

Magnifient defense! Dare I say . . . exquisite?

18. I wonder if any Dems regretted their donations to her vote recount project

that she knew before the initiative was even started could never overturn the results of the election (and appeared to validate the election).

(By the time she filed it was too late to get an automatic recount in at least one of the states and the judge denied her subsequent petition.)

She was able to keep millions of the dollars she raised under false pretenses and put them toward future "voter integrity" projects.

25. She's arguing in gaps.

RT is, at times, no different from the BBC. If there's no government edit on how to cover hardwood usage by China in Indonesia, it's just another government-supported media source. The problem with government-run media isn't that everything they say is controlled, but that some is and you can't tell the difference.

That's a really hard point for some people to get. In disinformation, not everything presented is false. So something can be planted and be 95% true. "Confidence building" is another way of saying "promoting self-deception".


Now, I've seen the photo being talked about, but I didn't notice the details necessary to support or disconfirm what she's said. I've been to invited dinners that were catered by some other group. Receptions of various kinds, meetings for administrators or when UC regents were in town. UCLA Alumni events. I've sat down at nice tables all arranged, with place settings for 4 or 6 or 8. Sometimes the table was full. Sometimes, there were empty place settings because not everybody showed up. And not everybody shows up on time or there isn't staff to clear the tables of unused place settings. Moreover, nobody's tied to a seat, so people did get up and move around. Spend the main course with one table, shift elsewhere for dessert (because few people will be showing up that late).

So if you look at the table--it's hard to see much of anything concerning some plates--you notice the following. (?1479834100)

Putin's plate is clean, as far as I can see. Food's been served. There might be a water glass in front of him. Or not--hard to make out perspective. It might have been there, waiting; he might have asked for it; he might have brought it. Behind him at a nearby table there are empty chairs in front of place settings containing food that's been served. Stein's eaten at least part of her food, so while it's possible that we're just seeing the part of Putin's plate that he didn't put food on, it's also possible that Putin either moved seats or declined that course, with no way of being sure which of the three options he did just based on that still photo.

Again, though, this is all less "Putin interfered" and more "this is why we didn't win" talk.

As for why he was at that table, maybe he just wanted to have a picture of him taken with Stein to provoke this kind of theory. Or perhaps she was irrelevant.

30. I find it curious that she has been given airtime on every network spewing her bullshit. Who in the

hell is Jill Stein that she deserves this kind of coverage.

The only thing that made her news worthy was the Ponzi scheme she concocted to con some to believe the LIE that there was no difference between republicans and Democrats.

Well, that is history now, and folks if they didn't realize it before, realize it now, Jill Stein is an insignificant LIAR, and just as many are turning their backs on people like betsy devos when she speaks at various schools, it is time for us to do the same with Stein.

31. Jill Stein no longer has any effect on anything

She is not a politician with any power, and is maybe hoping to get elected again, but people will know better and vote against Trump, and against her better interests. She never had a chance to win and therefore will always be a loser in more ways than one.

Every four years, Jill Stein comes along and rears her ugly head to run for President of the United States. She does nothing in the meantime to promote her party. Maybe this is the end of Jill Stein's Presidential bids. She is finally being exposed for the self serving person that she is.
