Gee , that's too bad ,....... That simply informs anyone with any brains that the mainstream media cannot stand being unable to filter in or out their own agenda to press room releases ? If the rest of the world has social media and uses it in an immature , uninformed and negative context , Why Can't Trump?
Seriously? That is your defense? If others can be immature, uninformed and negative why can't the POTUS follow suit?
This sounds, to me, like the lowest common denominator disregard for Clinton's actions during the Monica Lewinsky debacle.
So essentially you have a problem with the ideal of free speech between everyone in the world ----and the exception of the man in the white house ?
Yea ........ but it's only me that has a problem with that .
"Trump Tweets Disappoint Mainstream Media"
So glad to see the title to this post. It suggests that the mainstream media have a degree of common sense and a concern for the damage which Mr Trump's ridiculous infantile tweets are doing to the reputation of America. Perhaps you need more people like the mainstream media?
As for the rest of the post - Oh dear, I'm sure you don't really think it's OK for the President of the United States to send immature, uninformed and negative messages? Just because there's a whole bunch of morons in the world who send stupid tweets, does the President have to be one of them? Or is a slightly higher standard expected of him?
This nonsense of social /mainstream media has all come to fruition BECAUSE of the media and you guys want us to believe its Trumps fault. Have any of you listened in to any , ANY press room questions . The Trump machine cannot get past answering about phony pecan pies , locker room language barriers , the great new invention of who's Russian collusion is taking over the world.
Problem , There is a media war against the actual will of the historic American voting public ,that small percentage that actually cares ! The democratic party has become the American Socialist Dictatorship , the college campuses all across America are the new day- care -protest -learning -centers, But some people Want the Don to stop tweeting .
The News Media in America is working FOR the establishment two party system of tyrants that doesn't want to go quietly down the drain !
More to come !
I remember when Trump was one of 16 candidates and you couldn't stand his "immature" behavior. It has been fascinating to watch how dramatically your tune changed once he was elected leader of your tribe.
I suppose one benefit of his tweeting is we get to know what is on his mind and what he considers important. I submit that if you defend his tweeting, then you are also revealing what you consider important and acceptable in a leader. Your standards are pretty darn low, aren't they?
He is a low, low man in a high place and about 35% of the people in our nation approve.
"I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!"
~ President Trump
I agree, we cannot support liars. I admire people who can admit their shortcomings, but especially if they turn their life in an honest direction for good.
colorfulone <---- He "can't support liars" but supports not only a lying sack of sh*t (the orange POS get caught in his lies at every turn) but a pedophile lover to boot!
This video of Joy Behar cheering the Flynn news this morning is a good case study for how partisans disseminate information. She has only the smallest, most basic idea of what has happened, and she treats it as a game changer anyway. You wonder how "fake news" spreads? Watch: Idiot!

This shows exactly how the MSM works - a fake ABC story fuels the "aspirational" take of the extreme liberal left - and then they celebrate what turns out to be nothing that was not already known to the public...
Here is a classic case of liberal media abuse of reporting BS, tweeting BS, and having a drastic effect on the Stock Market. Thankfully, ABC was caught spreading lies and once again had to retract their shameful way of reporting false information.

ABC did delete their fake news tweet. ABC can fly a kite!

"People who lost money when the Stock Market went down 350 points based on the False and Dishonest reporting of Brian Ross of @ABC News (he has been suspended), should consider hiring a lawyer and suing ABC for the damages this bad reporting has caused - many millions of dollars!"
I agree, ABC should get sued for damages.
Love this tweet by Julian Assange: Video
Obama State Department: No problem with Michael Flynn contacting foreign states. Normal for a transition.

Still no collusion.
So essentially everybody , lets vote for Joy Behar for president because she's the voice that you believe is reasoned ? ...........OMG , what has the forum dribbled into .
Addressing a panel in Simi Valley on Saturday, the CIA chief was asked whether Donald Trump’s addiction to Twitter makes the CIA’s job “harder.”
“I’ve actually seen it help us,” Pompeo responded. He added that “things the president has put on his Twitter account actually have a real-world impact on our capacity to understand what’s going on in other places of the world.”
“That is, our adversaries responded to those tweets in ways that were helpful to us to understand command and control issues, who’s listening to what messages, how those messages are resonating around the world.”
Interesting that only the opposition does not want Trump tweeting.
Donald Trump tweeting in the way he does is frankly ridiculous, and it absolutely certainly isn't only the opposition who want him to stop - unless by 'opposition' you are including probably every world leader of note, including America's closest allies. There isn't, I suspect, any sensible person in authority anywhere in the world who thinks the way he tweets is a good idea, or helpful to relations with the U.S.
Of course people respond to his tweets because he's the President of the United States. But adversaries of America only have it confirmed in their own minds that Trump is an unstable and dangerous individual, whilst friends of America just shake their heads in disbelief.
If Trump's tweets really help the CIA 'to understand what's going on in other places in the world', then all I can say is that the CIA's intelligence gathering must be at an extremely pathetic low ebb if they have to rely on responses to Trump's tweets in order to understand the world better.
You ,as many others , view Trump tweets as somehow some sort of a diplomatic communication process , It isn't . For one it is his tool to communicate beyond the filtration process of our new obstructive ,mainstream , face-book style news media .
If you as president said , "I want to end violent crime" , and the media translated that immediately to say , "Trumps hates the criminal system , " What would you do?
The world views it negatively , Too Bad .
I recognise that Trump's tweets are not diplomatic - anything but!, but whether they serve any useful purpose other than to show which biased and bigoted news outlets he relies upon for his information - I'm not so sure.
'I want to end violent crime' --- 'Trump hates the criminal system' Somehow I suspect there may be a little bit more to that exchange of viewpoints than that statement indicates.To suggest the mainstream media said that he hates the criminal system simply because he wants to end violent crime, is exactly the kind of fake reporting of speeches and commentary which you object to in others.
'The world views it negatively. Too bad'. Well, OK. Some in America seem to think they can live in an isolationist bubble and that nobody else's perception of America matters. Maybe that was once the case. Not so sure it is now, and it certainly won't be in the future.
Yet , guess what ? No one outside of the US get's to dictate internal US. policy , that's been going on too long . What you probably also don't know is how much our news media has devolved away from media integrity IN JUST FIVE years . Once the best example of transparency in the world , now nearly the most ideologically biased .
That you probably haven't picked on your radar.
The people of the world expressing their opinion about Trump's tweets, or anything else for that matter, is not "dictating nternal U.S. policy." Stop exaggerating.
Okay , how about this , It's just plain none of their bisiness , And only adds to the ideological divide in America ? It also simply shows the truth about good fences making good neighbors . The people of the UK have enough problems , perhaps they should mend their own fences.
No exaggeration what so ever .
Trumps tweets have caused, not only the world to wonder about his mental health, but himself much scrutiny for his self incriminating statements to the world at large. He that lives by the tweet.....
Actually no , It simply shows the lefts inability to deal with their failure to launch any kind of positive political action . Simply obstruct , obstruct , obstruct ...........
The opposition [yours]needs to get over it's Trump Derangement !
The left is doing what the right did during the Obama administration. Did you like it then? And Trump's derangement is his problem, not the left's.
There is a major difference between the polite political opposition from the right to Obama and your sophomoric spread of mindless obstructionism rearing its ugly head today . Your once at least, honorable ideology and opposition has devolved into far less than childish tantrums , crying sign carriers and public displays of mass regressions in human behavior .
Look around you.
Yeah, like the difference between 6 of one and one half dozen of the other?
As usual, Ahorseback, you are full of IT......
Please explain the difference to this pore ole ignorant dirt farmer if you can, horse. If not, then....
A hilarious Freudian slip. Can't. Stop. Laughing.
Aside from pure personal hatred and fact-less legal obstructions , the Mueller lynching party comes up with total nothing except the original Flynn lies , And you guys dive into this scare-crow sort of Russian/ Election/ Collusion meltdown , like THAT is proof? You've proved .... NOTHING with your entire , constant and contrived rants .
There is your proof .
Aside from that , yea wow ,keep it up your doing great things ..............Not!
Manafort has been caught collaborating with another Russian, and as a result, the prosecutors are calling for his bail to be revoked. How dumb can he be as he almost had freedom to travel between numerous states, but now he's toast.
Manafort and Gates acted as unregistered agents of the Government of Ukraine. (2006 and 2015) There was no Russian collusion. Corruption, yeah!
Who is this other Russian suppose to be, Randy. I do not see any headlines supporting what you posted. Can you link us up, I would like to verify that.
The only Russian collusion was by the Democrats / Uranium One, and God knows what else.
It's breaking news on all channels other than Fox of course. Manafort was caught yet again by the FBI working on an editorial--expressly prohibited by his bail terms--with another member of a Russian Intelligence. Also a no-no. He's either stupid, ignorant or his arrogance is beyond belief.
It remains to be seen what the judge will do about his pending bail and/or freedom before his trial date. Believe it or don't. Makes no difference to me at all.
Ok, I am seeing the headlines now. I'll give it the 48 hour test of time and see what gets revealed.
I don't recall Manafort being caught colluding with any Russians, so I really have to wonder about the "another Russian".
Oh wow man, we must be special!....Crazy times we are witnessing.
I can't believe how the media and the left is acting like a bunch of barn yard hens , yakking ,, scratching and crying out about rumor and gossip. So far what have you seen for actual charges to Trump/Russia / election /collusion ?
I'll answer for you ......Zip!
Well horse, so far 3 of Trump's minions have been indicted with 2 pleading guilty. Do you really believe these are the last? I suppose when Trump is shown to be involved you'll jump off of his bandwagon even faster than you got on.
Randy , Wow .....Newsflash , 3 people charged with Russia / US Trump /Election ,voting machine tampering causing Hilary Clinton to stand in front of the ticker -tape screaming,
" They've taken all of my votes and stolen my coronation "?
Uhhh,.......where does it say that ?
Come on Randy , you haint' got nuttin '.
You seemed to have ignored my question, horse. How many more of DT's minions have to be indicted before you stop claiming it's fake news? All of them?
KT McFarland, Jared Kushner and Lil DJT should be concerned. Hope Hicks might be a little nervous. As of yesterday it seems Reince Preibu knew what was happening. And the list goes on.
In the end , All You're going to end up with is the slightest possibility of one or two people lying or misleading the investigators .
And they are going to be out of a whole lot of money for legal fees.
What you're missing is the complete point , Try to catch up if possible , WHERE is the huge alleged case of mass Trump / Russian / Election collusion?
You're trying to build a major international collusion case with a page of media B.S.
You seem to have a lot of trouble simply realizing you're over projecting a big "nothing burger ".
I hope you're intelligent enough to realize the investigations have only just begun. Even if they lead to Trump, you won't believe it anyway, so why be so impatient? Mueller is a patient, plodding investigator and Trump--and perhaps several family members as well- may soon be up that well know creek.
You're side has already accused , tried , judged and hung Trump for these absolutely baseless accusations that have lead absolutely NO where . But you're telling me to be patient?
Heck , I'm waiting for something to actually move .
Didn't you say awhile back that Flynn wouldn't be found guilty of anything? Change your mind on that one yet, horse?
Flynn was guilty of what , lying to his boss , that's all ? Other than that you're in a meltdown about what exactly , that business people meet with business people , politicians with politicians ,leaders with leaders ............OMG that's right , its the big bad Russian boggy -man !
You know , give it up ! In seven more years you won't know the difference between a new democrat and a Russian circus clown . I wish your new left would evolve.
Why be so intense ahorse? It's just a discussion ... with differing views.
Are you so naïve you don't know what a plea bargain entails, horse? You apparently didn't pass your bar exams because any mediocre student knows a plea bargain means the defendant cops to a lesser charge for leniency for what the defendant provides in information about someone higher on the chain.
Not many are higher than Flynn, so what do you think he provided worth the plea? Make up something if you need to.
You do know that Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, don't you? As I have repeatedly asked you, and as you have repeatedly refused to answer....why all the lying ?
I swear, if you ever answer a direct question with a direct answer I will probably fall off my chair.
The important thing is the reason he lied. He was trying to not say it was coordinated with the PTT. KT McFarland said she didn't know anything about contact with Russia. Her email to Flynn proved that she lied during her inquisition.
You're acting like four year old's on helium balloon gas ........seriously ? You're going to feel like freshmen college dweebs on day after inauguration day , no pants ,no idea where you're at .
I feel bad for you's.
Sorry horse, it just breaks my damn heart you don't like my opinion. Seriously though, why don't you answer our questions? You seem to want answers to yours.
This made me laugh. Four-years-old and sucking on helium to a freshmen with no pants, just like that. Sounds like a wild ride.
And that , IS the reaction of liberal ranters . OMG , get over it Trump won the election .
The North Koreans could light up the NYC sky tomorrow and the libs would all say ..................What about my Starbucks ?
And you avoid answering questions by declaring anyone who disagrees with you is immature and naive. Or, "Obama!, Hillary!, Fake news! "
I'm with Randy. It's pointless trying to discuss anything with you. You don't answer questions, you divert and insult, and then you expect others to answer your questions. And, to top it off, it's hard to have a discussion with others because you're incessantly interjecting your rants about liberals, Obama, Hillary, fake news, and witch hunts. We've read the same stuff over and over and over. Maybe you could shake it up a bit.
Maybe answer a direct question with a direct answer. Maybe type a whole response without bashing liberals or the media. Maybe?
Then again, I'd probably fall off my chair, spilling my Starbucks soy mocha latte and dropping my vegan arugula goat cheese salad on my hippie hemp rug.
Never mind. ;-)
Pretty, That sounds like stuff I've heard on Food Network! It probably good but....
I'm concerned about ahorse. I don't think he has any fun in life. That shortens your life span. It could even lead to dementia. Lighten up ahorse!
Goat cheese is the greatest cheese the world has ever known. I’m ready to fight about it if anyone wants to disagree.
Now I want cheese and Starbucks.
I love goat cheese too. I drink Folger's coffee. Chuck Grassley wasn't talking about me when he talked about women, movies and booze. That is an awful stereotype.
So , ....big deal , I Didn't think Trump would have a chance in the beginning and yet , All of you thought the same , I was surprised at his immature , non-articulate attacks ,
I though he'd lose the primaries and not beat anyone of his opponents but guess what , He did ! So you are surprised what , that I know how to get behind a party winner ?
Your glee shows more about your political maturity or lack thereof and THAT is exactly why you lost sight of your own candidates , your own corrupted DNC , you fawned over a non candidate -Clinton who couldn't even show up in the states she had to win?
You partied over your Russian dossier , you thought what ? All she had to do was win her home state or and the coronation was complete . You allowed the party corruption to oust your hero Sanders from an early and winning competition . Tell me I'm wrong about that ?
You're right ,I DIDN"T think Trump had a chance , but I did know enough to follow the successful paths of the victorious in my own party . The left ? Still in the midst of a sophomoric defense of your directionless , meaningless obstruction ?
Guess what people , Trump won . Move on.
Obstructionists and other sufferers of Trump Derangement Syndrome , TDS , are so gleeful at any crumb of highly fictional Trump /Russian collusion that they can't even spot a true collusion, as is their entire corrupted DNC ,ousting Sanders over Clinton , ousting the others too because of Wassermann -Shultz fiasco .
Come on obstructionist , time to evolve.
"Time lapse video of the border wall prototypes, when they were being built in San Diego. Next phase underway: testing and evaluation period."
Progress at high speed!
Trump Obstructionist's ; What ever you do do , just stop whining like pre-schoolers in a rainy recess period ,it's sickening . the real political world could care less about your collective , childish , baseless obsessions and complaints , much like the entire depth of your political knowledge ,what ? That you hate someone's hair color .
This newest habit of social media , the curious re-Inventing of fact and truths from lots of nothing burgers , is all any of you have proven so far.
My advice , Lead ,Follow or get out of the way .
Real political progress arrived in D.C. and Trump is way , way ahead of you all !
Fourth time. Why all the changing stories and lying among the Trump crew if they are not trying to hide something? Why?
Where are the charges ? The trials ? The verdicts ?
Fifth time. Why all the changing stories and lying among the Trump crew if they are not trying to hide something? Why?
Maybe if I keep asking you will finally answer.
In Trump Investigations = How one investigation makes a mountain out of a molehill ? , For president; America elected a world leader in corporate ownership ,and organization a celebrity of international size which means , companies , hundreds of tax ties , of permit process' applications , thousands and thousands of employees , imagine the ties to government officials and those relationships , the taxes , fees and government corrupted officials all over the world just to operate a business ?
Of Obama = You elected a Chicago social worker with no ties to anything ,anywhere , anytime , anyhow ? No business connections , no government connections , no employees , no tax records other than non-profit deductions , Basically someone with a clean record of ever accomplishing .........well nothing .
Which one has ties to foreign government ?
See the difference ?
Sixth time. Why all the changing stories and lying among the Trump crew if they are not trying to hide something? Why?
Sixth time's a charm? You can do it. I know you can.
Because for the sixth time just like the first or like the one hundredth ?
Because the left simply cannot" Let Go " of the fact that there is nothing hidden in the hay stack ! Simple , have you ever lied about something , anything to anybody ? That is what your tax payer dollars are paying for , searching desperately for . A lie or two ? To date over "seven million dollars " and counting , Mueller .
Mark my words , That will be the total construct of any Trump investigation outcome , That one of his minions lied to someone about something ! Impeachable ? No . Media worthy ? Yes . Obstruction worthy ? You answer .
My answer , nothing but very expensive Ideological driven nonsense !
You still didn't answer the question of why. The investigation is not over. You seem to have a crystal ball telling you what the end results of the investigation will be. What does your crystal ball say is the reason behind so many changing stories and lying?
Why, if there is nothing to hide, would a high ranking person lie to the FBI, which even I know is something you would never do if you want to stay out of jail.
You 're never going to give up on the needle search because you're just not , but listen , What questions were asked , of who , about what , what answers , what cross examination to what questions , who else said someone lied , and what were the lies , large , small , highly significant or not ?
Where is the beef ?
There must be something more there simply if there's a lie's spoken ?
Not nessessarily .
Okay, I conclude that you are not capable of answering a direct question with a direct answer.
Pretty panther , and YOU don't want an answer because you don't listen to them anyway , you have more than proved that hundreds of times , What you do want is the fantasy of a major announcement that will never come .
The impeachment for nothing , from nothing, because of nothing .Period.
Judicial Watch is in federal court with two lawsuits, plus two dozen FOIA requests, to get to the bottom of the Deep State’s illegal intelligence leaks aimed at undermining the Trump administration.
So now you're a mind reader, too? Please provide a link to any statement I have made that I want "a major announcement." I don't even know for sure what you mean by that. I have repeatedly stated we must wait for the investigation to play out before jumping to conclusions. You're the one making pronouncements of innocence before the investigation is done.
[Shaking my head]
You won't hear them on Fox. I watch Fox and look at their webpage because I like to have balance. Follow Twitter for more rounded resources.
Pretty panther ,the special investigation , these Trump haters are constantly stacking bricks of obstruction on a beach of soft sand , figure it out people , Mueller's investigative days are numbered , the team is falling through their own cracks , their lack of character .
"James Comey admitted that Hillary Clinton lied multiple times to the FBI during her criminal investigation. Each time counts as a felony.
Clinton's false exculpatory statements showed intent and consciousness of guilt."
* https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status … 6581715968
Lies, lies, lies...and they wanted to elect a liar? Birds of a feather?
Now, when the FBI director admits that Hillary Clinton lied to him and the FBI how is that itself not a criminal charge based on the Gen Flynn double standard?
Comey repeatedly admitted that Hillary Clinton lied.
Audio and video, under oath. Can't just make things up!
Comey was the FBI Director. But, I guess its ok just because...
This has no bearing at all on the question of why so many lies from the Trump crew.
Comey testified under oath to Congress that Hillary did not lie to the FBI.
You're trying to deflect. Whether she lied or not has no bearing on the current investigation.
* https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status … 6581715968
Just can't face the facts?
BTW, Ty Cobb, a WH attorney predicts the investigation will be over soon, so most people are taking his lead. But, he predicted it would be over by Thanksgiving, so...take it for what its worth.
Hillary lied several times to the FBI. Its on record. She should go to jail?
Dirt-bag Obama campaigned for lying Hillary. What's that say about his character?
Chaffetz, July 7, 2016: Did Hillary Clinton lie?
Comey: To the FBI? We have no basis to conclude she lied to the FBI.
Chaffetz: Did she lie to the public?
Comey: That’s a question I’m not qualified to answer. I can speak about what she said to the FBI.
Head in sand!
I hope you got that issue fixed on your computer.
My computer is fine. It's your websites that are wonky.
Oh, right...blame game! Mmm!
Good excuse to keep head in sand and avoid the facts.
Lol, you and horse. I give up. You both win out of sheer ability to not address the subject at hand with endless deflection. Carry on. Your archenemy Hillary is not in jail. It gives you perpetual fodder for deflection.
Projecting your own inability?
Horse and I have no problem addressing issues, its just that some people are in denial.
It's totally useless to converse with either horse or colorful, PP. Neither of them know how to debate any subject properly. Move along, there's nothing to learn here except frustration...
That is a pot calling the kettle black?
Former Judge: If General Flynn Was Not Aware Strzok Was Removed for Bias - Case Can Be Dismissed Due to Giglio Violation..."Lock him up!" Fired FBI official at center of Flynn, Clinton, dossier controversies revealed.
Agree. The problem is they are so prolific that they derail good discussions that could be had. I'm going to ignore, ignore, ignore. If everyone did, maybe we could have some better dialogue here. I don't have any better solution, since I tried to get a direct, on-topic response from horse and failed.
Where the BOTH of you in particular "fail " is directly related to the same problem all leftist's have , You cannot sway or convince others of your own directionless ideological points' and don't like it one bit when you're minds are forced open by opposing opinion AND when forcibly opened ,again slam shut like a trap door.
Can't Reason with the Unreasonable .
Yes, they flood the forums with nonsense, distraction and links to dubious websites, seldom contributing anything useful to the discussion. Let them squeal....
Let me introduce you to the REAL squealers , the entire Trump obstructionist clan .The one that never produces one iota of fact yet rambles on seemingly forever .
Come on dudes , don't give up so easily, it's a direct sign of ideological weakness.
Where's the beef?
Over a year later, America continues to ask: When will Clinton be locked up? Any wonder why the Department of Justice and the FBI have lost credibility, respect, and public trust?
That has to change!
Deflection. No bearing on current investigation.
Now, ... Democrat senators are now calling for Al Franken to resign.
