I think it was very rude of them to not let him shamelessly lie without interruption.  So much for the tolerant left!
 
2017-08-17 03:59:00 PM  
"You should fire your press person," Velshi added. "If they didn't tell you were coming on TV with Velshi and Ruhle ... this is a silly conversation to have with us. You should go to other people's media and say these things but not to us, we cover this every day in and out. "

I never find these to be satisfying because that asshole didn't learn anything, didn't he even hesitate to think that he could possibly be wrong and he'll go home to his right wing buddies talking about how terrible the liberal MSM was to him.

Velshi was great on Al Jazeera America. I'm glad to see he still has a gig but it is unfortunate that it is on one of the corporate yellow journalism news networks.

I think that the MSM is actually getting bolder and spitting back into the right wing wind.  It's nice to see bullshiat talking points shot down at the moment they're uttered.

BONUS: (and reporting myself here) when Stephanie Ruhle exhaled, laid back, and said: "you just have to finish" I pretty much did.

That's why I am proposing we bring back American Gladiators, only instead of athletes, we use journalists. All of the pundits have to make it through a rigorous round before being allowed to speak. If they win, they are allowed to tell one lie with impunity witjout being challenged by the journalist. But if beaten, they have to admit the talking point in question is fake and explain exactly why they are lying, using terms that even the most devoted D2S fan can understand. Rinse and repeat for the entire interview. If at any time the pundits are caught using weasel words or half truths during their truth telling sessions, their pants will be set on fire and long noses permanently grafted onto their faces, while a drunk with the DT's tattoos "I am a lying whore for Trump" on their forehead in comic sans. I smell a winner!

If the Trumper is gonna focus on number of jobs created, it's gonna end badly for him 100 times out of 100.

In that economic paradigm, an aerospace engineer is worth the same as a fast food burger flipper.

This is really great to see, but where the fark have these journalists been hiding?  Shutting down bullshiat is part of their jobs, but they've been giving bullshiat equal time and consideration to actual factual information.  I get really upset at people cheering on when someone actually does his/her farking job.

Every time these Trump surrogates come out with a list of economic accomplishments, I want the hosts to ask him "Exactly what legislation has Trump passed that has led to these economic accomplishments?"

He hasn't touched the economy. He's signed some executive orders limiting travel to the US and failed to repeal the ACA. The economy is cruising under Obama policies.
 
2017-08-17 10:15:32 PM  
I want to do very naughty things to Stephanie Ruhle, but I have to give Trump a little credit.  I made $1300 yesterday by shorting the dollar right after his press conference.  So thank you, Mr. President. Keep being yourself, because it makes life so much easier on the forex markets

It's a well-worn tactic of Trump's ilk-hell, most of the Republicans, for that matter-to use their experience or length of time in their field as support for their opinions, to which I've found the perfect response:

Only a Trump idiot would not understand the latency between economic policy and the results.

For example, Republicans took took six years to destroy the economy under GW and Obama fixed it.  100% of those vile sack of s**ts blamed Clinton for a destruction caused by all Republicans.  Now, the same morons think that Trump "working" 1-2 hours a week "fixed" the economy that was repaired by Obama against all Republicans wishes.  ALL Republicans wanted the US economy destroyed - because they are traitors.

Tell you what.  I will bet ANY Republican 1000 to 1 odds on a simple demonstration.  One million dollars of my money to 1000 of their's.  Give me unfettered access to a Mercedes for 15 minutes with my equipment.  I will give one of them an entire day to fix all the damage caused by me during that 15 minutes.  Not replace, fix.  If they can not, I get the $1000.  If they can not, they get $1 million.

If no one takes me up with this bet, ALL Republicans are liars.  ALL destroyed the economy and have no ability to actually understand economics.  If any of them do, I will accept that one of them is more idiotic than the others.  If a single person is able to accomplish this impossibility. I will claim my permanent belief in God and become their most vocal proponent.

It is far easier to destroy than repair.  Absolutely no Republican understands this - given their talking points.

I am giving anyone 1000 to 1 odds to prove their position is correct.  I am serious, because I know ALL Republicans are so consistently wrong that I am the only one willing to put up money to prove it.  I certainly have the assets to cover this bet, but I figuring that the only Republicans thinking they could win would have trouble coming up with the $1000.   So I'll help you.  I will give you the $1000 loan at 10% interest per day to make the bet.  I will fly you to Las Vegas so the bet would be legally enforceable and then I will drive you into public bankruptcy just to f**k with ALL Republicans.  The video rights of showing one of you monkeys just how stupid and ineffectual you are would be worth it to me.

If you want the loan, you need to actually have at least a trailer that you live in.  The camera on your face as I torch the Trump heap would be worth the $1000 alone.

I have offered this before, but all Republicans understood their BS had no substance.  They are all cowards.
I guarantee to could turn any car into a slag heap in 15 minutes - much like how GW Bush and ALL Republicans destroyed the US economy.  Thermite is my friend.  Does any Republican think they can "repair" a molten puddle of metal back into a working Mercedes in a day without just bringing in parts from the outside by themselves?

If not, STFU, you f**king racists.
Accept the fact that you voted for a traitor.
Accept the fact that you voted for a racist.
Accept the fact that you voted for a fraud.
Accept the fact that you voted for a idiot.
Accept the fact that you voted for a pathological liar.

There's a learning curve to acting presidential, you know. Most presidents rely on experts and competent advisors, but that is for chumps and losers. He's going to pivot at any time and then we'll see who's laughing. You know, if everyone would just take turns parking his cock in their cheek for a few minutes each day, he might actually be able to get some work done.
