(Ars Technica)   During the election campaign, Trump promised to block the AT&T-Time Warner merger. No need to read the article, you already know where this is going   ( arstechnica.com) divider line

So the check cleared.

It's good to be the Nazi-enabling Grifter-in-Chief, I guess...

If anyone believe Trump will follow through on ANY of his promises I have some real estate along the border to sell you.

He fired the Nazi just now.

Maybe somebody should put a word in the executives' ears that if there was a shady deal, there are a lot of very sharp people looking at Grump's shady deals, and people will be headed to prison soon, so maybe you want to voluntarily put that deal on hold until there's a grown-up in the White House again.

Trump will blame the out of control DOJ (which is letting Mueller get away with attacking him), the incompetence of Sessions, and the Deep State. The GOP will eat it right up.

You're giving Trump too much credit.  The CEOs of AT&T and Time Warner probably just told him how it would look like he's a genius who is great at business if he let it through.  Then Trump made this face:

Then, once his nappy was changed, he approved the merger.

And since Herr Twittler parrots the last person he talk to, what will his new agenda be? Influenced by Jesus Freak Pence or Mr. Military aka Bomb them all and let God sort them out

Reporter: "You are the lone Republican candidate who has yet to weigh in on whether or not you think the Confederate flag should be flying above the statehouse in South Carolina. Do you think it needs to go?"

Trump: "I think it probably does. I think they should put it in a museum. Let it go. Respect whatever it is you have to respect because it was a point in time and put it in a museum. But I would take it down, yes."

He's totally consistent.

Things Trump supporters remember from the election campaign:

Her emails
Open season on non-white people
Undoing everything done by not-fully-white Obama

The Trump base support can't get past this holy trinity of beliefs.  The "average" Republican I-always-vote-straight-ticket-Republican-who-is-it-this-time-oh-shiat-​oh-well-here-I-go-voter may remember, but be smart enough to know this was never gonna happen.

Those two are already farking huge enough as-is.  Them merging would legitimately create a dystopic megacorp.

This is great news!  Finally, we can have Time Warner's fantastic customer service coupled with AT&T's vast, modern network infrastructure.

Hey, we should feel sorry for Sebastian Gorka. He had a relative die in one of the concentration camps. Poor guy fell right out of his guard tower.

They should have blocked the DuPont Dow merger too, but Liveris sucked D2S' micropenis on that one.

The country is still waiting for much needed tax reform and health care reform.  Maybe if he stopped tweeting or saying stupid shiat about North Korea or Nazis or whatever for a while he might be better at getting things done.

Yeah, except the much needed tax reform and healthcare reform isn't what YOU are hoping for. You want taxes to go to the wealthy and healthcare to no longer be provided to the poor via taxpayer funds, and that's basically the "reform" you're looking for. What this country actually needs is tax loopholes that the wealthy lobbied for, which are only useful for the wealthy to use, be eliminated and for healthcare to be provided to all through single payer universal healthcare (i.e. We pay our taxes, we give everyone in the country healthcare) without the middlemen for-profit HMOs (whom are skimming off profit for themselves instead of providing their customers healthcare funds that their customers paid for). We don't know what personal stake you have in these opinions you keep steady on Debeo, unless you're typing on your computer from your mansion at this moment. I am just shocked the North Korea stuff and the Nazi appeasement from Trump bothers you; I am glad something does: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/EvenEvilHasStandards​

One more time.  Pay attention:
This merger has nothing to do with Time-Warner cable.
You were never directly a customer of this Time-Warner unless you subscribed to something like HBO Go.
This Time-Waner is the media company that owns HBO, Cinemax, TNT, TBS, CNN, DC Comics, Mad Magazine, etc.

Wow, what a concept...

Implying that I haven't seen a president not break campaign promises. It's probably the second most common thing to the world's oldest profession.

That quote sounds to coherent to be Trump...
