No investigation. No investigation.  Your'e the investigation.

Great strategy. Tell the world that your client is a pathological liar. That can't possibly hurt you later in court.

I fully approve of this plan. Please proceed.

The point is to tell a completely unpredictable series of lies and truths under different circumstances to different people. It puts people into the mindset that truth itself doesn't matter, so you can then do anything you want.
 
2017-06-18 12:40:29 PM  
CNN slowly pulling away from the story.  There's an investigation - let's all just let that work itself and focus on other things like the shooting, the tone in DC, the naval ship accident etc... etc...

Trump Lawyer: "Trump is not being investigated."

Tapper: "OK, Breaking news, Trump now denying there is an investigation."

Well, I gotta say I like the sound of this lawyer Trump has. If this represents the kind of defense Trump is getting for his money, then proceedings are going to get rather awkward for him.

Assumption!

Scorpitron assumes the lawyer had a soul to begin with.
 
2017-06-18 12:46:38 PM  
Fine.

Then your client is delusional and obviously mentally unfit to hold the office.

Either way, he needs to be removed.Whether that's to a prison cell or a psych ward is an academic argument.

"There's a limitation on Twitter, as we all know," Sekulow said. "The President's response was as it related to the Washington Post report. He cannot in a Twitter statement include all of that in there. ... That's it. Simple explanation."

Then your client has two options if you want him to be honest and accurate in his social media posts:
1. Stop using Twitter to post such important thoughts that they are unable to be expressed effectively in 140 characters or less
2. Do like everyone else on Twitter does when they feel the need to express themselves on a stupid platform that is supposed to be for quick snippets of life, not for Deep Thoughts; put a 1/2 in front of the first tweet and  2/2 in front of the second.

Jesus, you're as much of a moron as he is aren't you?

For someone who "tells it like it is", it is pretty tough to figure out what "it" is.

Remember when lying about a blowjob was considered a fatal character flaw.  Now, lying is considered "telling it like it is" and is applauded.  And up is down, black is white and America gets itself killed on the next zebra crossing.

Because most Americans are politically disengaged.

img.fark.net

The single biggest problem with governance in this country isn't political extremism, it's political apathy. By definition, extremism is always going to be a tiny minority, otherwise it wouldn't be extremism. So if extremists like Trump are in charge of anything, it's because the majority of people just didn't do anything.

The reality is, if Americans actually voted on the issues they claim matter to them, republicans would never win anything more powerful than local dog catcher positions and the democratic party would likely be far more liberal than its wishy-washy centrism of today.

CapnBlues: The point is to tell a completely unpredictable series of lies and truths under different circumstances to different people. It puts people into the mindset that truth itself doesn't matter, so you can then do anything you want.


Somebody should tell Trump that truth isn't a mortgage rate.  You want the biggliest, most yuuugest numbers.  A government that relies on the trust of the governed ought not to rely on obfuscation and lies.  Seems pretty simple, like something you'd learn in 5th grade.  If you had paid attention.

Obama was trusted, apart from that 25-30 percent that can't be objective for even a moment.  He attracted and sought out others that were trustworthy.  People doing public service for service's sake.  And nobody in his administration was indicted or tried or convicted.  He was squeaky clean and he surrounded himself with squeaky clean.

Contrast that with Trump's admin.  Everybody is a dirtbag.  We're only almost 5 months into this shiat show and there are multiple investigations and talk of impeachment, nothing is getting done, and the world laughs at us - even the President Jester himself admits that.  For the Trump admin, incompetence isn't enough.  You have to also be corrupt.

Because racists and corporatists saw him as a malleable tool to push their agendas.
