Twitter Slaps 'Manipulated Media' Tag on Bullshit Video that Trump Retweeted

Twitter’s new rules concerning manipulated content went into effect this week, and—not surprisingly—President Donald Trump has already proven why the platform needed them in the first place.

On Sunday, Twitter applied its recently implemented “manipulated media” tag to a deceptively doctored video the president retweeted, as first reported by the Washington Post. The video, originally posted by White House social media director Dan Scavino, appears to show former vice president Joe Biden endorsing Trump’s reelection bid thanks to the magic of editing.

“Excuse me. We can only reelect Donald Trump . . .” Biden says in the clip. However, the second part of that quote, taken from a recent speech the Democratic frontrunner gave in Kansas City, Missouri, is cut off; he goes on to say, “We can only reelect Donald Trump if in fact we get engaged in this circular firing squad here. It’s gotta be a positive campaign.” As of Sunday evening, the edited clip has garnered 5.4 million views and more than 70,000 retweets.

Using manipulated media to lie and deflect... you don't say, heh.
He is literally a russian troll bot working for a russian troll farm

Six degrees of separation or is that infection?

CPAC chairman, Matt Schlapp, divulges the he had 'contact' with a covid-19 infected chap and went on to shake Trump's hand. Apparently, he also shook hands and intermingled with Ivanka Trump, Lara Trump and Jared Kushner. Reportedly Trump is unconcerned. Because Trump is quite literally a moron, but as he is a liar also he is probably bathing in disinfectant right now.

Trump administrations fix on the covid-19 numbers...

…hide a pandemic by literally refusing to identify the sick and help them.

My brother's ex-wife returned from S Korea with what doctors believe is #COVID19, was admitted to GWU hospital, and against the Chief of Staff's recommendation, the Department of Health WILL NOT TEST HER.


In a twisted way this makes perfect sense. If you are not testing people of course the numbers are going to stay low... and Trump is all about keeping the numbers low, they don't need to be real at all, after all nothing about Trump is real. Of course the fact that people may well die because of this... I can see the shrugs now round the cabinet table. When will idiots that still support him understand that he just does not care about them. At all.

Heh.

Graphic mine

Oh Crap! It's a Thesaurus!

Happy Sunday!

Conservatives for COVID?

So that there hoax virus that is a plot by the democrats to attempt to make Trump look totally incompetent has hit AIPAC with currently two of the attendees so far having tested positive. And although AIPAC denies it is partisan we all know that republicans and lukid party members are their biggest fans so chances are whoever has it may be one of the fuckers who is already blaming the virus on 'teh gay cause jebus' crowd?

Anyway think of the possibilities, so many righties in a closed environment with the virus... it will not stop at two and think of those who may be in line of fire:

Mike "Flay Away the Gay" Pence
Moscow Mitch
Toxic Ted Cruz

Sadly, Agolf Twitler did not attend... Now, I would never death wish, but a few of these incompetents getting a tickle from the virus- that is another thing entirely, after all they have enthusiastically distanced themselves from any sense of collective responsibility and funding for public health, because they are wankers who do not care about the vulnerable. Couple this with the fact that they are fucking up so badly on the COVID response and well KARMA BEEEAAAATCH.

Heh.

god: heres two brilliant women to choose from



Jess Phillips in leadership in politics:
“People still think that the man in a suit who can make a hard-hitting speech [is leadership material]. If a man in a suit stands up and makes a hard-hitting speech, people go, ‘he’s got leadership’. If a woman stands up and makes an amazing speech and is a brilliant orator, and is an amazing member of parliament, people say, ‘well, maybe, one day… when people think of people who rule us, they still think of a white man in a suit.”

Exactly this. Patriarchy writ large.

Boris Johnson must be hating being PM - and these days that counts as good news

Johnson mostly hides out in his out-of-town mansion, gives embarrassing performances when he does show his face, and presents as the least serious, most indulged gilded playboy. We’re basically being governed by Batman’s cover story. But in a horrifying twist, the cover story isn’t covering anything. Instead of Boris Wayne having a double life as an extremely skilled and effective force for good … that’s all there is. What you see is what you get. There is no batcave. There is no state-of-the-art equipment, no matchless martial arts skill, no scientific arsenal. Sorry, guys. I’m trying to locate Boris Johnson’s character attributes, and there’s nothing here. Actually, hang on – he can make you pregnant. Is that what you’re after?

Emphasis mine for one of the best lines ever...
It is a really great article, worth clicking the link to read.
Chap wanted the job but he is in reality intellectually lazy and a blagger... heh

Oh Lord, hear our pray...



Can I hear an Ah-men



Double standards you say? Indeed



Heh. Very good illustration of what wanker hypocrites they are...
