Fake News from CNN! (Ha ha, just kidding.)


CNN says

... that came less than 24 hours after Trump had described Sessions as "beleagured" in another tweet...

The use of quotation marks implies that Trump misspelled beleaguered, but in fact, he didn't. See for yourself:

Fake news! Fake news! We can be confident that even though Trump is contemptuous of virtually all of the other resources at a U.S. president's disposal, he does rely on his spell checker.

Edit: It's just a joke! Yes, I understand that what actually happened was that the CNN reporter didn't know how to spell beleaguered.

It's time to reassign the "miserable failure" Google Bomb to he whom it clearly & obviously belongs.


Does anyone else remember "Baghdad Bob"?

I'm already seeing haunting parallels between Anthony Scaramucci and Baghdad Bob.


Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf is a former Iraqi diplomat and politician. He came to wide prominence around the world during the 2003 invasion of Iraq, during which he was the Iraqi Information Minister under Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, acting as the spokesperson for the Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party and Saddam's regime.

He is best known for his grandiose and grossly unrealistic propaganda broadcasts before and during the war, extolling the invincibility of the Iraqi Army and the permanence of Saddam's rule. His announcements were met with widespread derision and amusement by Western nationals and others with access to up-to-date information from international media organizations. In the US he was popularly known as Baghdad Bob...

Solar Eclipse Delayed Two Weeks, Rescheduled for Labor Day

Trump threatens electoral consequences for senators who oppose health bill.

The only way this could make sense is if Trump is threatening to call Putin and have him interfere again.


It's a bit distressing that Rachel ran out of time last night. I wonder what else she had ready.

Great news! The White House is trying to kill the daily press briefing.

The White House is trying to kill the daily press briefing

We've known for a long time that what Trump and his surrogates say is worthless, so the press briefings and their rebroadcasts are essentially wastes of time for everyone involved. The time is better spent focusing upon what Trump does and what's been newly discovered about the Trump Crime Family.

As Rachel Maddow said in the Rolling Stone Interview:

"Have you found the whole fake-news and "alternative facts" stuff to be a distraction?"

"I mean, who cares? It's like sticks and stones. I am interested in the president denigrating the press and the judiciary and the intelligence community and law enforcement because that is important in terms of his behavior as an increasingly authoritarian-style leader, the type of which we have never had before at this level of American politics, period. I am not interested in it because it offends me. When speech becomes behavior, then it is relevant. I don't watch the press briefing. I don't read the president's tweets. In general, 'The president has tweeted X' is an overblown story."

And, of course, who wants to look at this?

Never mind, it turned out to be a problem on my end.

I only asked if others were getting the same unexpected result that I was getting. It turned out that it was just my computer and there's no evidence or a problem with the DU site.

Maybe this isn't just about past Trump crimes. Could it also be about an ongoing Russian threat?

It might be vital to our national security to know the whole truth about what went on and what may still be going on between the Russians and the Trump family, since the Russian plan, whatever it is, may very well still be in full progress.

If so, by hiding the truth, the Trump family is not merely attempting to cover their butts, they're also interfering with efforts by our intelligence community to identify and combat what may be an ongoing Russian assault. This would mean that they're not merely guilty of having committed various crimes, they're also currently committing treason!

On MSNBC, the still photos of Sarah Huckabee Sanders are getting less and less flattering.

Did anyone else notice that? On MSNBC, the still pics of her while playing audio recordings of off-camera briefings seem to be getting progressively worse and worse, capturing increasingly odd and awkward facial expressions. Maybe, in a subtle way, MSNBC is trying to tell them what they think of the camera-banning policy.
