    No. No. No. Right after that video ends the producer says "what I just said was a lie." It was deceptively edited because the guy actually said right before the video starts "what I am about to say is a lie."

    Wait, are you guys talking about the retracted story (that never went to air, but only the internet?). It was retracted, and only parts of it were false. How many completely false stories have the right wing trump arms (and trump himself) posted and NEVER retracted?
    "Obama bugged me"
    "3 million illegal votes"
    "The NSA and FBI tell Congress that Russia did not influence electoral process"
    "the biggest Electoral College win since Ronald Reagan"
    etc
    etc
    etc

    Now, I know his relationship with the truth is completely adversarial and you want us to discount completely WHAT POTUS SAYS, but seriously guys, this has got to be one of your biggest beat ups. Either that or something else has happened that I've missed.

    Oh, you mean the video of the medical producer guy, heavily edited and supplied by someone known for deceptive editing? Well, sure, he could believe what he says, probably does. He's not even on that story. I'm sure a reputable organisation, who doesn't selectively employ those who only agree with them, has people on-board who even voted for Trump. Maybe even still support him (hard to see that though). That's what reputable organisations do.

    But again... how is this a big thing in your world? Trump himself lies continuously and you are OK with that. He parrots complete tripe from Fox and you are OK with that. But some medical producer at CNN says something that Trump agrees with but most others at CNN don't, and "OH MY GOD, it's an outrage!!"

    Lately he has taken to attacking Obama for not doing enough about Russia handing trump the election. You see that right? He's accepted the Russians meddled and, hence, he was probably elected illegally. The same Obama who put the democratic process ahead of partisan plolitics and didn't just try to scuttle the election. He put sanctions and bans on russians that trump wanted to immediately remove, for the same information donnie was given prior to inauguration? He didn't just find that out, it was said out loud to everyone. But donnies response was "fake news, fake news, fake news". He is POTUS now, HE needs to step up and invoke the punishment on the russians. Is he doing that? Or is he still just whining about Obama and Hillary ?

    TL;DR

    I assume it's a long winded deflection, you have been had. I'm sure he should have done something differently in your opinion and he is still everything he has been falsely portrayed as. Can you admit now there was no collusion? Can you be a little honest?

    deceptive editing

    Obama
    They fired three people for a partly retracted story?

    It could only be deceptively edited if they say what they just said was made up.

    How embarrassing is it to admit to not doing anything while another country "meddles" in your election process?

    He? Trump? How on earth can you still think there was no collusion? Because donnie says he didn't know about it back then? He's always said that, and it does not mean there was no collusion. That is still being investigated. It is possible that the demented orange thing didn't know that what he was doing was collusion, or that his team told him lies, or that he really doesn't understand anything at all about politics and the ethical way of doing things, but none of that means no collusion. He openly invited russia to hack more emails. Joking? Maybe, but it shows he did know what the allegations were on that front. As for tampering with the actual ballots... well, are you fine with invalidating the election immediately? If so, I'm fine with saying Obama should have stopped the election back then, before they had so much evidence.

    Why do idiots think left is bad. It's actually another word for decent, or christian if you are that way inclined. Jesus was a total socialist.

    Because there is literally no proof and everyone has admitted that. Also, why are you always disparaging people's color?

    Well, most threads, but there's little meat on twitter today.
    Although..

    Donald J. Trump‏Verified account
    @realDonaldTrump
    The #AmazonWashingtonPost, sometimes referred to as the guardian of Amazon not paying internet taxes (which they should) is FAKE NEWS!

    Like... really? Internet tax, guardian of amazon.... fake news... Meanwhile, Syria and healthcare and... dammit.. there's literally a thousand things he'd be better off addressing.
    How can we not laugh at him?

    You know, if I thought for a minute I would get an honest discussion out of you guys, I might put forth a little effort. As it is, I know I won't so I'm simply going to point out when you are proven wrong with as little energy as possible.

    The day you could be honest? We all do.
    TB, mostly Rok, but she isn't alone, several of our forum members simply refuse to believe anything in their blind hatred of all things Trump and the right. Even I can admit Obama did some good, and I am about as far from an Obama fan as someone could be.

    Of course. You actually post "I think" before posting proven false claims all the time. It is odd.

    It turns out that CNN actually retracted the story publicly and fired those three leftists "journalists" because the completely fabricated fake news story got them a 100 million dollar libel suit that was only dropped when they loudly issued the public apology for the completely fabricated fake news story. Anyone claiming well huuur the story isn't completely false is wishcasting, and it dumber than a box of rocks.

    Whale blubber is a necessary environmental adaptation for them.

    Also, whales were pretty much my favorite animal when I was a kid, primarily due to this pokemon. (Cows were the only ones that better, because of this pokemon.)

    Not a fan of the platypus. Otters are pretty cute though.

    I do like walruses. They have excellent mustachios.

    The platypus is just from this vid.


    My favorite are still hippos. But the amount of adorable baby elephant seal videos are amazing.

    The part where you used words in a proper sentence. They didn't understand them put down that way....
    Or... They knew that the only response a human would give was the same as mine, and they couldn't bear that...
    Or... They don't want a proper discussion. They wouldn't recognize one if they saw it
    Or... The mere thought of a naked breast sent them racing away from the keyboard
    Or... They don't understand the concept of nurture.
    Or... meh

    I don't understand the discussion here lol.. CNN messed up, and always has been, and it just got backfired on them.
    If CNN or Fox News faking their stories is news to ya then it is time to do some research.
