    Rather than Trump slowing down on making false statements, he's apparently doubling down on his lies according to a fact check by CNN. Last week he made 61 false claims, some against sitting congress members. Did anyone expect anything different?

      Randy, by now I think everyone knows "Pansy Pants" Trump is a cowardly, corrupt, mentally bankrupt charlatan cult leader, nothing more nothing less, just like Marshall Applewhite, Jim Jones, Charles Manson etc etc: How didi it turn out for them ????

      At this point Donald could disrobe completley and roll his pathetic wrinkled up obese flabby self down the entire length of Pennsylvania Ave and many would finally say that's the final straw and leave him where he flops to roast in the burning sun, but many within his small crazy core of followers including we presume some christian right charlatan leaders would just say HALLELUJAH, the orange blob is disrupting the system !!:

      SAD but TRUE:

          Randy,

          It is actually unbelievable that you are using CNN to check the facts. This organization is going down the tubes. They are losing viewership because they are no longer regraded as trustworthy. They are in the process of letting people go because their ratings are in the toilet. I did read the link you provided. As usual it was short on facts on long on innuendo. For CNN to say that facts matter is outrageous. They have been playing it fast and loose for a long time. In any event, remarks from the president about attendance at his rallies are inconsequential. Beyond a doubt he is very popular and people line  up to hear him speak. As far as Omar is concerned, criticism of her  and her actions. words and intent can't be critical enough. She is anti-America, anti-American, Anti-Trump and anti our way of life. I suggest you do a little more research about her background and associations. I wonder, do you not appreciate the state of our economy under the president's leadership?  I wonder do you not appreciate his attempts to negotiate trade deals for our country? Do you not see that small businesses are growing because of his removal of onerous regulations? Do you not appreciate his respect for our military and his actions to bring us back to the most powerful nation in the world? Do you not applaud his defeat of ISIS? Do you not appreciate his defense of law enforcement? Do you not appreciate his withdrawal from the bogus Iran deal?  The point is this Randy, you may not like Trump as a person, but he sure is a fine president who puts his money with his mouth is. He can fix problems. As he has pointed out many times, so much more could be solved if the Dems would come to the table and do their jobs.

              Just Google CNN and sit back and read about their failures. The information is there for those who want the truth. By the way, do you watch FOX at all? Just curious because the network has a sizable representation from the left.

                If biased news reporting is an example of failure, then Fox fits the bill much more than CNN.

                Fox is seen by far as the most biased news network, according to independent research. And research shows that Fox News followers love that bias.

                https://www.people-press.org/2009/10/29 … l-network/

                Fox watchers are more misinformed than the general public, according to many research sources.

                On a related note, unlike Fox, I don't see CNN anchors campaigning with Donald Trump.

                  You are terribly misinformed, but I am not surprised. You and others are unwilling to see the truth. You have a narrative and you stick by it. That is precisely what the Dems are doing, and that is precisely why they are making fools out of themselves. FOX is number one because people trust them. They also always have both sides of an issue. The same cannot be said of CNN or MSNBC. Try watching it sometime.

                    Please explain why actual research shows that Fox is highly biased.

                    Fox thrives on bias. People like you watch it because Fox gives you what you want rather than the truth. Research proves it.

                    Your response is a biased double standard. How is that not "terribly misinformed"?

                    FYI, I watch Fox as much as I watch CNN and MSNBC.

      CNN fact checking?

      I didn't know you could be so comical Randy, that was good for a laugh.

      --CNN typically utilizes loaded emotional words in sensational headlines such as this: Trump pounces on Justice Department report findings. CNN has failed numerous fact checks from Politifact. It should be noted that these fact checks were almost exclusively from guests on their numerous talk shows and not from the reporting of actual news, which tends to be factual. TV hosts have also failed fact checks by IFCN fact checkers. Further, CNN has retracted published stories that have been deemed as lacking evidence. Finally, CNN has published misleading information regarding GMO’s that utilize loaded fear based headlines such as this: FDA allows genetically engineered ‘Frankenfish’ salmon to be imported to US. CNN has also utilized known purveyors of pseudoscience as experts on discussion panels such as the Food Babe.

      Overall, we rate CNN left biased based on story selection that often favors the left. We rate them Mixed for factual reporting due to misinformation and failed fact checks from guests and pundits. However, CNN’s straight news reporting would earn a High rating for factual reporting.

                  Ok... lets look at a PEW article:
                  https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2 … edia-2018/

                  See what it says about cable tv in there?

                  See how it lumps in CNN and MSNBC with Fox?

                  That is a way of skewing the truth, IMO.  Fox has seen increases in viewership while CNN has its lights on, but no one is watching.

                  Wait until 2019 is over, if CNN could have negative viewership it would.

                  You can't run show after show, hour after hour, for two years saying the President is a traitor to the nation, needs to be impeached, is a Russian agent, etc. etc. and then have the Mueller report come out and say none of it is true... they lost all credibility, and they had none to begin with prior to their incessant spewing of Trump hate.

                    There is no lumping. The size of the audiences for each one is irrelevent.

                    It's just a survey that compares the political affiliations of the viewers of each channel.

                    That's how you do factual and credible research.

                    And you can't condemn one channel for "Trump hate" while defending another channel that is filled with nothing but "Trump love".

                    It's a double standard.

        Trump fans do not care how much Trump lies or if he breaks the law. If he wasn't a sitting POTUS he'd be indicted long ago. Out of over ten instances of Trump obstructing justice, there are 5 which meet all of the criteria for the crime.

        If a democratic POTUS lied a tenth as much or broke the law half as much as Trump, they'd be having a hissy fit. As I said, they apparently love criminals.

          I think you're right.....if the laws are being broken by someone who is pushing an agenda that a person doesn't like, it's FAR more likely that person will want to get rid of the politician.

        Hmmm, getting a little personal there Randy. I am not quite ready for the rocking chair yet, still working in our business and putting in more hours than I care to AND cognizant of what is going on in the world around me. I am as free-thinking now, as I was in my teens. I’ve never been much of a follower....(I highly recommend it, if you’ve never tried it)
        No, I am not 94% white, I, like most people, am a potpourri, including Native American.....sorry Elizabeth Warren, it’s true. The difference is, I don’t use it and abuse, I’m just me!
