Oh, don't worry, they will.

One can only deduct, that Trump does not believe in the seperation of powers in legislating, judging and enforcing, but rather thinks it's quite OK for the legislating power to interfere with the workings of courts and police.

To say one is disgusted would be about as surprising as this shining example of how corrupt Herr Twitler really is.

Chalk your rant up as someone who doesn’t fundamentally get US politics. Trump’s efforts are for domestic consumption, show a segment of the population not likely intent on voting for him that he cares enough to try to spring this yahoo from the big house. Gains him some good will with the black community. He did it before with university basketball players caught stealing in China.

How can Bibi get away with supporting Trump who shouts “Evil Jews” in every interview or speech before he does his Mussolini impression
Can you provide a reference, Sultan, or did you just wake up and decide to post while sitting on the pot again?

No worries, us Scandihooligans find these tweets hilarious. Trump, and the US are turning into a typical US "reality show". Lots of trash talk, lots of grand standing, no balls, no reality.

Bear in mind Sultan was the one who was quite ecstatic to see the Russian submariners die recently because of Russian govt interference in the election.

I’ve heard that wine from the States is better than from France.
That even if you don’t drink wine you can make this fine judgement like a true “connaisseur” (talk about bad faith....)

Bravo the French for finally having the balls to taxe those international monster digital companies.
I’m quite fed up to see those racketing billions while not giving their share of taxes to the country they are making their money with.

Another excellent triumph coming up for El Trumpo.
The French exported €3.2 billion in wine and spirits to the US last year, up some 4% on 2017.

Macron has just signed off on a 3% digital tax that will affect US companies operating in France. Irritated by this piece of sharp protective trade fixing, our hero with the hairpiece is proposing to raise punitive tariffs on French wine and spirit imports.

This will soon enough hit the poor old grenouille grape grower who will not doubt retaliate by spreading vast amounts of animal excrement around the streets of Paris, where the mercury yesterday hit 40C! This is too, excellent news for the American wine industry, from whose grape roots all French wines originate anyway; anyone remember how French wines tasted pre Phylloxera ?

But then, the world forgets, that once upon a time Britain used to export wine to the Roman Empire and traces of vineyards are still visible in parts of Hampshire. Perhaps a trade war between Britain and France is what's needed to finally put the American wines up where they belong, not quite as good as the best Australian or, even better, the New Zealand wines, but getting close.

Wine: Politics and pleasure by the glassful. Santé and damnation to the Evil Empire!

Many people's perception of Trump is shaped by the fake news media, which is almost universally hostile towards him.
This has led an academic to research and write a book which proves just how egregious the media are.
Anyone capable of critical thinking would be ignoring the likes of CNN, Guardian and BBC by now.

So when the self declared genius spouts his relative limited vocabulary on Twitter and live on TV it should be considered fake news?
Thanks for the clarification, I always believed he was just plain dumb.

Political leaders need to reach an audience with a wide range of educational achievement. Therefore speaking in the clearest possible language reaches the most people with a given message. Trump, as POTUS, needs to explain to the American people what he is doing. Simpler language is understood by more people.

But back to the book. Read the reviews of it on Amazon. Maybe actually read the book and learn something. No doubt you think the author is dumb too. His potted biography: "I'm a tenured professor at the University of Texas at Austin.
I'm originally from San Juan, Puerto Rico, and I write mostly about history of science. Most recently I've also analyzed the political news media. I've been a Research Fellow at The Smithsonian, M.I.T., Harvard, Boston University, and Caltech."

And where do the blatant lies fit into all this "simpler" LCD talk?
Lie counter must be over 14,000 by now.......and still going. In your face lying is hardly fake.
Professors can talk crap as well as politicians can.

So you personally counted and proved these "lies".
Obviously not.
In fact your statement proves that you are a victim of the fake news media.
The book can help you with your problem.

You do realise that the Trump Derangement Syndrome at the BBC is so bad that they totally fabricate stories to denigrate him. And you believe them: https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/n...laim-nw7lgb8zt

I thought it was the other way around, they paid the Ukrainian, not the American.
Trump is perfectly capable of denigrating himself, no additional assistance required.

Eclectic.

Welcome to the age of video cameras.
I do not need a talking head or entire news organizations to interpret what I see and hear.

You are a victim of I don't know what but I suggest you do your own analysis of what raw, unedited footage you witness with trump, what he actually says and what he actually does.
You don't need some travelling professor to interpret what trump thrusts in your face.

You're doing a lot of advertising - just what are you selling?

What you see on video is mostly what the media have carefully chosen to let you see to support their agenda.

And you really ought to stop for a second and actually analyse what Trump does.

Trump is not a racist.
Lots of proofs here: https://deplorablekel.com/2017/08/23...is-not-racist/
Yet more proofs here: https://www.americanthinker.com/arti..._a_racist.html

The "liberal" media lie like crazy to denigrate Trump, when the reality is that he is a fantastic POTUS. And he is far, far better for the black community than his predecessor.

No mention of his golfing achievements? Il Trumpini must be furious. Expect a stern tweet.

Great summary

So we are all being snookered by our own beliefs, hence the planted posts on the internet from both sides

So how should we measure success among all the lies and deceit ?
