Trump on fomenting religious wars: 'Who said that?' Reporter: 'You did'

Well, this doesn’t bode well for the nation’s future. Here’s Trump briefly answering press questions on Wednesday. Specifically, where the reporter asks about his statement on the attack in Berlin:

Video here: https://www.dailykos.com/story/2016/12/21/1613380/-Trump-on-fomenting-religious-wars-Who-said-that-Reporter-You-did

Reporter: "Your comments about the truck attack in Berlin being against Christians, do think that this might….”

Trump: "Say it again?

Reporter: "The attack in Berlin being an attack on Christians….”

Trump: "Who said that? When was that said?

Reporter: I believe you said it in a press release….”


Yep, he did. In a statement released just yesterday he said “ISIS and other Islamist terrorists continually slaughter Christians in their communities and places of worship as part of their global jihad.” So there you go.

Someone else writes them, and you can always tell --- because they are written in English instead of Trumpish.

32. Ron Ziegler (Nixon) had "Inoperative statements." Euphemism for lies which didn't hold up.

http://www.nytimes.com/2003/02/11/us/ron-ziegler-press-secretary-to-nixon-is-dead-at-63.html

Also famous for calling the Watergate break-in a "third rate burglary." Which it probably was, albeit one committed by thugs from the Committee to Reelect the President (CREEP). Always loved that acronym and yes I know the official version was CRP.

https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plausible_deniability
http://www.cityethics.org/content/loyalty-and-plausible-deniability-40th-anniversary-watergate

Senator Howard Baker (Republican) famously destroyed plausible deniability with his "What did the President know and when did he know it?" question during the Watergate investigation. One has to wonder which Republican Senator, if any will be willing to ask that question about Trump and the election shenanigans?

And that depended on what the current lie was.

CRP could be pronounced crap as well as creep. Both work for me.

If the guy didn't have money shooting out his ass, he would be less than a nobody.

A different set of circumstances might have seen him becoming anything from a sleazy used car salesman to a serial killer, for all we know. He certainly doesn't seem to possess any sort of compassion or ability to place himself in someone else's shoes.

And as far as his three wives...yeah, right. Like any of them would have given him a second look if he didn't have all that money.

I personally find him repulsive, and can't even imagine having to kiss a mouth that looks like a bad case of hemorrhoids on a baboon's ass, money or no money.

ugh

Especially when they, as tRump does, make stuff up to please the audience.

Lately we've seen tRump say that the "Lock her up" stuff was just to please crowds at his rallies.

Same thing goes for "drain the swamp".

There's some theories in environmental sciences that a general nuclear exchange between the superpowers would only create a demi-global genocide north of the equator.

The southern hemisphere would be much warmer and have less land mass, but it would be possible for scattered bands of mutated humans to survive down there. Until the roaches become sentient.

36. Either Trump had nothing to do with that press release or

can't remember what he said. Either way, it is clear evidence of his unfitness for the office to which he was elected.

Personally, I suspect that he had nothing to do with the press release. I think he leaves such things to others. However, if he did use such language in a press release and cannot remember doing so, then I'm concerned about the state of his health. Forgetting things that are important is a symptom of some issues often associated with advanced age.

37. I think he has very little involvment in things that are not spoken unscripted directly from him

That include teleprompter speeches too. I think the only time we get something from him and not his people is when he's talking without a script.

He doesn't even go to security briefings so I'm sure he doesn't go to other briefings as well. He's flying by the seat of his pants out there and sometimes what he says lines up with his official position put out by his team.
