Trumpling the Truth

Post by nafod » Sun Feb 19, 2017 3:20 pm

A thread to keep track of the truth trumplings. A truth trumpling tracker. Trumpled Truth Tracker.

At his rally, Trump said...
In defending his executive order banning Islamic refugees and travelers from 7 Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S., Trump said, “When you look at what’s happening in Germany, when you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden — Sweden! Who would believe this? Sweden!”
There was no terror attack last night in Sweden.

This a classic from the 90s, where Trump pretends to be his own publicist.

Trump a liar? Certainly. Pathological? Maybe. Doesn't that also exactly describe Hillary?

2016 was a binary choice of liars. Most of America outside the Elite Coastal Enclaves chose the liar they thought didn't openly disdain them and who just might have their economic and cultural interests at heart vs. the interests of the statist Progressive Borg.

If we get a couple of good SC justices, some manufacturing jobs, a few felonious invaders kicked out, and the bureaucratic state dialed back a bit w/o a depression, massive inflation, or another war, America will have made the better choice.

Trump makes Hillary look like honest Abe Lincoln. He lies for no particular reason and about stupid stuff he doesn't even need to lie about, and that is easily disproven. Christ, he lied in his speech at the CIA about it raining at his inauguration. That's pathological. It's just weird. He is one fucked up dude.

It's more weird that his supporters lap that shit up. I don't get it.

That he's constantly using political spin as a tool? Yes.

This isn't exactly 'if you like your coverage, you can keep your coverage' or pretending to be Cherokee to get a job. The big Trump lies (if there are any) will be found elsewhere.

So, transparently false bloviation upsets you. But you were OK with the Big Lies promoted by the last President.

I am truly happy that the new R administration is pulling the illiberal SJW left out of the woodwork. It will be an improvement for sure. And the country desperately needs a little right pull back to some semblance of center. However, I have zero admiration for trump and I'm not sure why republicans feel they need to profess allegiance. My teenage son can put together more coherent sentences than Trump. And I do value honesty. Just because I didn't see it with Obama nor Clinton doesn't mean I'm ok with it now. Identify politics makes smart people look completely foolish

No. Why?

Did you trust Hillary? Obama?

*****

1 - I luxuriate in the tears & hysteria of the Left, especially Big Media. Trump is tearing it up and I love it.

2 - I will judge Trump by what he accomplishes.

As I've said before, all he has to do is Jumpstart the economy up above Obama's anemic 2 or 2.5%, and Trump will be well on track for reelection.* 3% would be nice and 4% would be stellar.

I like his first Supreme Court nominee and I would be delighted to see him fill two or three more vacancies. That would make him a truly consequential President.

I like some of his cabinet appointments. Anyone who hates Betsy DeVos: Fuck You. You have zero compassion for kids trapped in failing schools; you're right down there with Obama, who killed the educational choice program in DC.**

He seems to be doing more good than bad, so far. But we'll see. It's only been a month.



*Barring starting WWIII. (And Hillary was just as likely to do that as Trump...look at how everything she touched in the Middle East turned to flaming shit.)

curiosity.

re your question, i would refer you to buckethead's statement above:
And I do value honesty. Just because I didn't see it with Obama nor Clinton doesn't mean I'm ok with it [lack of honesty] now
as you wrote: we'll see what he does.

He is actually two steps ahead of all of you. You are reacting and losing ground. He just broke the hell hole that is sweden because of muslim immigration into the mainstream despite massive boycott by press:

Um, from your link:

Some are up, some are down, but the overall trend appears fairly flat despite the large rise in immigrants over this period.
The article goes on to state that preliminary stats for 2016 were up some – I guess the final stats aren't available yet? – but that data doesn't seem to show a "hell hole".

80% of reported rapes are by immigrants. They sack cops for speaking out.

"On the other hand, preliminary figures show that crime against persons was up 7 percent in 2016, including a 13 percent increase in reported rapes and a 14 percent increase in child abuse."
