    "In an annual terrorism report published in July 2017, the State Department reported that there was "no credible information that any member of a terrorist group has traveled through Mexico to gain access to the United States."

    Sarah Sanders, Trump's unapologetic spokeswomen, was caught lying about this as well by Chris Wallace of Fox News!!! (not Fox Opinion)

      My Esoteric, I think by now the entire world realizes Donald seems to be  a pathological liar as documented by so many valid sources and whether he has the mental capacity to actually be aware that he's constantly untruthful is still I believe an open question: But sooner or later with all the criminal investigations into his business dealings, Russian connections and public appeasement of Vladimir Putin, all those lies are beginning to catch up to him in spades as essentially an un-indicted co-conspirator:

      Yes, Donald's serial lying on many subjects to the American people is abominably despicable, un-Christian and of course reason alone for his immediate impeachment, but his accomplices like Sarah Huckleberry who we assume understands the difference between right and wrong going before the world and REPEATING such bald face lies is certainly a horse of a different color, or should we say 'Horse Manure' of a different color:

      2 republican senators defected from Bozo Trump the other day and now I believe at last count we are up to 5 or so republican senator defectors which means soon we should be up to a veto proof majority in the senate to deter Donald's mad government shut down which needs to be halted IMMEDIATELY so Americans can get PAID Again::

      Look for the Don to lie about the border in his speech tonight. No prediction.....simply his MO.

        Randy, counting Donald's lies is the ONLY reason I'll be watching tonight, just like it's the only reason I watch his little 'lie festival' pressers and Sarah Huckleberry's occasional 'Circus of Delusions':

        We are now at the point where his un-Christian lies are so blatant, so outlandish, creepy, strange and so unbelievable that you don't even need a FACT Checker anymore, you can just count them in real time as he spews them through his false teeth and he's far from photogenic so his face doesn't really help his racist cause: Maybe one of his soon to be indicted children will clean him up this time for a change so he doesn't look so unattractive in public and on global television:

        Fix that thing on his head, turpentine to remove the orange paint from his face and double neck, do something with those huge purple gray eye bags and lips, shorten the tie about 5 inches, yes we know a LONG tie might be his psychological attempt to compensate for other shortcomings as Stormy D said but it looks ridiculous in public, and for God sake, no more cheap looking polyester suits made in CHINA, try a top quality silk or wool suit from Europe, preferably Italian, French, Spanish or English made:

        Given the mountain of evidence against him, this could be his last attempt at hoodwinking the people before impeachment so why not look your BEST, or at least try to look your best:

          I wonder if Donnie has heard the Russian lawyer--famous for her part in the infamous Trump Tower meeting--has been charged with lying to the investigators in another matter.

          Also, despite her claims to the contrary, she is now known to be connected to high Russian officials.  OOOPS!  lol

          This story just broke about an hour or so ago.

            Thanks for the heads Up Randy, I haven't had time today to keep up with that major development but yup, she's essentially a Russian operative who was present in what Steve Bannon calls the treasonous Trump Tower Meeting with Junior Donald, Jared Ivanika and Manifort: Just a matter of time now:

            Some of the cable networks are tossing around the idea of covering Bozo's "Circus of Insanity" tonight on a delayed basis so they can fact check him before the propaganda reaches our ears, fabulous idea:

            The only emergency in the USA right now is the one roaming around in our oval office and I'm still astonished that he's STILL allowed to set foot in our white house: UNREAL: With so many republican senators defecting from Bozo Trump, I think we might actually get  Veto-Proof majority to open the government and avert more detrimental effects and then that majority might just commence impeachment hearings to finally REMOVE this demonstrably inept, Russian appeaser who ivy league psychiatric experts warned congress about months ago:

            Let's keep hope alive and hopefully we'll see this charlatan behind bars very very soon:

              Yes Jake, never before have the Big Four networks been hesitant to offer TV time to a president when he said it was a matter of National Security.

              One cannot blame them as they try to be as responsible for the honesty and factual reasoning given for the statement as they can be. And let's face it, no one with any sense at all would vouch for Trump's ability to tell the truth. Not even his lawyers and family members would give you such a guarantee, so why would the networks.

              Before long they may not give him any time at all for his BS...

                Randy, this chaotic, stark raving mad oval office has flown light years beyond dangerously bizarre and absurd: In a few minutes, Donald the clown frantically waving around his tiny little mitts, will appear on national television and lie through his creepy looking choppers telling the country that the very same undocumented immigrants a golf course which bears his name employs, are somehow dangerous:

                That's what the reports say:

                ***** BEYOND ABSURD and Retarded *****:

                "Trump's New Jersey golf club employs undocumented immigrants, women say"

      And the Trumpers seem to be totally ignoring the war that is brewing between China and Taiwan. He probably will blindly lead us into that one, too, and tell the world how great he is.

      Trump's trade policies have opened the door to bring this on. But what can I say, heck, this wall to keep out illegal aliens is the most important thing in the world to Trump and his supporters. China has already a so called indestructible missile. According to this story in Popular Mechanics, the target seems to be a warning to Trump.

      Seems like we have more serious things to worry about than just a concrete wall.

      And now the GREAT news - Manafort, while he was Trump's campaign manager, met with a Russian spy in Spain to deliver sensitive internal polling data.  The obvious conclusion is that it was to help the Russians social media warfare target certain Americans to vote for Trump!!!

      With Trump, the only transparency you'll ever get is what he says and does. So, in January 2019, he removed the sanctions against the Russia metals oligarch, Oleg Derepaska. A week later in a WH press session, he was asked what materials his wall would be built from. He answered, "It will be see through."

      This is a blatant connection to Derepaska. Derepaska's company is the only one that has developed "metallic glass" that you can "see through."

      This means Trump was in contact with Derepaska, no doubt because he made a deal long before he was elected to get that wall built using Derepaska's "see through" metal.

      That wall was always about what everything else in Trump's life is about..a business deal between him and Derepaska.

    The reason he is lying is simple. He thinks people are dumb enough and fearful enough to believe him, and be more likely to support his stupid wall.

    There is evidence on these forums that a significant percentage of Americans are that dumb and that fearful.

    One supporter just posted a false meme about thousands of terrorists coming across the border. Another is so afraid he advocates collapsing underground border tunnels without regard for who might be in them.

    Trump and his paid co-liars like Huckabee and Conway are playing to his base who don't care about the lies.

      Yes PP, however, the midterm results in which turned out to be a massive unprecedented, record breaking victory for the BIG Blue Democratic WAVE of Righteousness which will now work for the people instead of the filthy rich, is just one more indicator and confirmation that the number of Individuals who still buy into Bozo Trump's pathological lies, unabashed hoodwinking and incredibly destructive and unholy dark behavior which leads to his mad ideals, is rapidly SHRINKING, and thank God for that:

        I agree that he is losing people, and the longer the shutdown continues, the more he will lose. More people have grown weary of the lies and chaos.

      Come on PrettyPanther, you know damn well us forum participants don't represent a significant percentage of Americans,

      I would argue that conversely, we forum participants, who value our daily forum participations, are a very small minority of the American public.

      We are junkies looking for a fix PrettyPanther. I think we are very far from representing the American public.

      Think about it, do you really think a large segment of the American public spends its time in forums like this?
