Guys, listen up.

Some 4chan user created a rumour about The Donald. Next day, the media pick it up and now John McCain (not the oven fries John) is claiming he handed the FBI a dossier? It is crazy! John McCain is a liar too (he wasn't even a POW).

Various sources backing up 4chan origin.

So which is the fake news, the claims about an intelligence source dossier, or the counterclaims that it's fake?

We live in a post-truth era.

My view is that they all lie, the media, the political flunkies, all of the candidates, and especially the President Elect. How many of his promises will we see carried out? My guess is that a fair percentage of them will turn out to be fake, only made to garner votes.

Just for fairness, I'd say exactly he same about Clinton, and anyone else standing to be elected to office. Lying and faking is what all these people do, all of the time. For the President Elect to be critical of fake stories, when he's made more than his own fair share of fairy tales over the years than most, is just crass.

Talk to people over here who have heard all the broken promises and seen first hand the consequences of his own faked and hyped up propaganda.

He's no better and no worse than any of them. Someone should publish a book of his tweets, with the truth annotated next to each one of them..................

Surely the most ardent of Trumpets must be starting to realise that he is way out of his depth and is in no way capable of being the leader of the US, let alone the free world.

All of this talk of so called 'fake news', yet he didn't seem to have any issues when he was the recipient of it but when the shoe is on the other foot.

He's the joke that keeps on giving.

Have there been other US presidents who were totally unsuited for office, yet have been mollycoddled through their term by the White-House staff?

Just how much autonomy does the POTUS have?

Don't read this if you are in the UK, there is a "D" notice on it.

Christopher Steele, ex British intelligence and now director of Orbis, named as the source.

We should re-label this thread "Trump bashing from beyond the shores".

Carry on folks. You're stuck with him anyway!

We shouldn't blame Trump for being what he is but one does have to wonder at the gullibility and rank stupidity of a nation that elected him to be their president.

Just how stupid would you have to be , to believe some of those stories without any credible evidence ?








I would think that the former spy was taking the piss out of the media with the piss story .
The good news is , if you believe that story as presented you have passed the stupid test . The bad news is , you have failed the intelligence test
