    Another blatant in your face lie from the Commander-in-Chief today as once again, he tells us not believe what we see and hear with our own eyes and ears. After both the Intel Chief and the CIA head reported exactly the opposite of what Trumps has been saying about both Syria and North Korea, Trump met with both and claimed, "They were taken out of context and misquoted and we're basically on the same page."

    I want some of his fans here to explain this if you dare.

      The experienced experts are wrong and this Trump fellow believes that his 'intuition' is a credible substitute?  He doesn't have to explain nor justify his stance, we are just suppose to take his word because HE'S TRUMP?

      I find people like this he is very irritating, not to mention dangerous.

      Jack: Don't you see? He is playing the media and they are falling for it. Trump is brilliant and knows exactly what he was doing. When will you learn?

      wilderness: I don't watch Trump but the media is doing what it always does, searching for the tiniest mistake and blowing it out of proportion. The mob will not rest until it has destroyed him.

      Livetolearn: Yawn. Trump is just like every other politician. They all spin and lie but you are so blinded by your hatred that you cannot see the truth.

      Randy: C'mon, Jack, you don't think your idol cares about anything but himself, do you? big_smile

      Prertypanther: it is clear that Trumpeters don't care that he is a lying POS. They knew it when they voted for him. Scary!

      There, I saved us all a bunch of time. ;-)

        Well damn! Feeling a bit frisky aren't we?  (I will ignore that you nailed us all - except maybe the grade-schooler part)

        You and your hubby are enjoying a couple martinis tonight aren't you!

        Now, about that EC crack ...

      Sorry, it was late and I did mean it in humor.  I've been on the forums for many years with some of the posters, so there is a certain predictability about particular subjects.

      I did include myself in the teasing, if that means anything. :-)
