MSNBC: Trump presser getting simultaneously fact checked.

He just can't help himself. He always needs to brag, put down President Obama, lie, lie, and lie some more.

He has his xanax voice this morning.

Joe Scarborough (I know people here hate him), is simultaneously breaking in to fact check and point out how Trump has no clue.

1. Just wow

I bet you did not know that people in the UK love Trump. and that he is having so much success righting the entire world, in fact everyone loves him, all the folks in NATO and NATO countries, blah blah blah. I just got up and turned on the TV, my god how I felt
like vomiting. We need to get this man in a straight jacket!

3. Actual polling shows Trump has an 11% approval rating in Great Britain.

Lowest approval rating of ANY US president. Just reported on Morning Joe.

. . .that there are dumb, crazy people in the UK, too. Obviously, by these numbers, a lower fraction, but they must exist.

21. Brexit proved than adequately.

I bet the 11% who support Trump all voted for it though.

27. The same idiots...

...that are cheering for a self-destruct Brexit usually identify as Trump supporters too.

They are normally looped into the same RWNJ accounts.

Only 11% is rather satisfying, I wouldn't have been surprised at a figure closer to 20%.

2. Major kudos, Joe, Mika, Willy, et al!

That was a sight to behold.

No Trump lies were allowed to stand.

This real-time fact-checking should be standard operating practice for all real news outlets.

4. Not a fan of Scarborough.

He was as much an enabler of this descent of the GOP into fascism as any of that tribe. He won't admit it, of course. But he once said, on his old evening show, that you could not possibly be a patriot if you did not 100% support President Bush's invasion of Iraq and subsequent torturing of prisoners.

But he seems to be acknowledging his past sins by the penance he is doing daily on his morning show, pointing out the lies and incompetence of Trump. Maybe he's getting back a piece of his shredded soul, who knows?

10. He is no longer a Republican.

On one of his "Morning Joe" shows, he said that he had become an Independent.

25. By which he means "Independent Republican"

Tiger's stripes don't change.

But I will give him this much: he sees what a fascist, racist POS is in the WH and has chosen to put as much distance as possible between himself and that fascist, racist POS.

11. Joe and Mika

Are partially responsible for Trump.

They allowed our dear friend Donald to call in every day, long after CNN put a stop to it.

Too little, Much too late!

I used to be a Republican, back before Bill Clinton. I believe Joe S. when he says he hates the Con.

8. I used to really hate Scarborough.

I still don't like him at all, but I do appreciate that he loves his country enough to point out the lies spewing from that bunch of traitors. It's such a bizarre feeling to find myself more or less on the same side as the likes of him, George Will, the Bush family, Ana Navarro, Michael Steele, and numerous others, who at one time, used to make me want to throw a brick through the TV every time I saw them on it. What a fucked up mess we are in.

20. We Could Adjust The Scale

It could start at "mostly a lie" and move to "complete whopper"!

That would make the needle move a little less from statement to statement.

16. It's 2018 People

Red Sox fans are over Babe Ruth, Miami fans are over LeBron.

People's opinions change, they are not tattooed on the brain. History is a flowing river, not stagnant pond. That is why making something "great again" can't work, it requires flowing upstream in time.

Go with the flow, but always have your ideas dominate the pack of inner tubes as we all go downstream.

Those who cling to your ideas, welcome them. But don't think they can never be cast astray. How hard they cling to the community of good ideas depends on me and you.

24. If the SC can determine that a politician has a "right to lie", then news organizations

should have an obligation to identify the lies.
