But he's so pleasant and homey when he lies.  So that makes it OK.

And he's so comfortable lying while suggesting you are the liar for suggesting he's the one lying.

Yeah, I predict that by this time next week, the Trump administration will go into full on 1984-style mode on Manafort.

"Paul who? Manafort, you say? Well yes, we've certainly heard the name, but any implication that he is affiliated in any way with this administration is just more fake news from the liberal media."

Just watch.

You're a couple months too late. After the raid the white house was already trying to distance themselves from him:

"I thought it was a very, very strong signal, or whatever. I know Mr. Manafort -- I haven't spoken to him in a long time, but I know him. He was with the campaign, as you know, for a very short period of time, relatively short period of time."
 
2017-09-21 02:28:00 PM  
can we get a lineup organized before all trace is lost in his mind?
 
2017-09-21 02:28:53 PM  
For all the things Trump is wrong about, his entire administration spends way too much time trying to prove the wire tap quotes were true. Do they think if they can make wire taps happen it resolves them of any wrong doing wire taps may have recorded? I don't get it.

after the 2016 election, including early this year - "a period when Manafort was known to talk to President Donald Trump."

I thought early this year was the time by which it was decided Manafort had played a very limited role in the campaign, and only them for a very limited time.

The new rules about who he is allowed to eat alone with in prison should be interesting.

2017-09-21 02:39:22 PM  
You know, with all this forgetting in the White House, you'd think people would be invoking the 25th or testing the water.  but maybe pence forgot about that too, like the letter addressed directly to him about Flynn.

It will be: The only Manafort I knew was during high school. He was an Exchange student from Nambia, and spelled his name S-m-i-t-h.

I rather suspect that a lot of the Trump team are going to end up suffering from this unfortunate condition.

I know that the democrats have had their share of crooked politicians, but I'm just dumbstruck by the constant drip feed of scandal coming out of the GOP. Does the party have a single member who isn't a crooked, backstabbing liar, a grifter, or any combination of the two? And it's not even the white house, congress itself is full of republicans who go beyond just being awful people, but are thieving liars at every level. I just don't get how anyone can support this party without a lethal dose of doublethink and cognitive dissonance.

Mike Pence, the Sgt Schultz of this administration.
He knows nothing, absolutely nothing.  That's why he is the hero of the Republicans.

There's a long list of false things that Republicans have to swear are true, in order to be Republican.  Including that Obama is a sekret Muslim born in Kenya.

Claim: "Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my 'wires tapped' in Trump Tower just before the victory,"

New info: FBI wire tapped his campaign manager with a condo in Trump Tower - approved by high levels in Justice Dept. before and after the election. Could have included calls with Trump.


That's not the farthest off the truth he's ever been - especially if you use a sliding Trump truth scale.

Came in here to reference how skilled Pastor Pence is at lying, using that exact same clip where we NOW KNOW THAT HE WAS LYING. Look at him go... the dismissive chuckle of disbelief, followed by the subtle headshake and the disappointed look in his eyes like he can't believe the ridiculous liberal nonsense about Trump/Russia he has to deal with, the sad little smile to show that he knows that you're in the know with him and isn't it a shame that good people like us have to listen to such nonsense?... and then a couple of days later it was all shown to be complete and total bullsh*t.

Never look at Pence again without remember how skilled a liar he is.

Just like I'll never look at Brian Kilmeade again without remembering how Jimmy Kimmel publicly humiliated him by pointing out "Brian Kilmeade, whenever I see him, kisses my ass like a little boy meeting Batman."

How long did they obsess over the fact that Comey had once said Trump wasn't "currently" the subject of an investigation?

This is what drowning looks like.

There should be a law that if you use the "I cannot recall" line on something that's happened within the last year, that should be an instant sign of mental incompetence, cause immediate removal from office, and prevention from holding one in the future.

That goes for pretty much all of the GOP these days.
 
2017-09-21 04:27:13 PM  
They're going to roll on Pence first:  they know he's involved and having him wager his freedom/life on testifying against Trump would be a bonus.  Trump is an insane liar but having Pence say 'I was charged with making sure I was his VP via Manafort' would sink him.  And considering this is treason, Pence would roll on Trump in exchange for a life behind bars where he suddenly wouldn't develop a serious case of severe radiation poisoning.

Trump would roll on Pence in an instant, and removing Pence would allow placement of someone that isn't involved with farking Russia to be ushered in to fill out Trump's remaining term.  This is how the GOP will get around their entire party getting investigated...or at least, that's probably their hope.  I don't see how they're going to get out of this without either rioting or most of their party seeing prison time or simply being executed.

He got lucky. He had hit the ceiling in Indiana when whoever it was on the Trump campaign tossed him a lifeline.

It will be both; interchangeably.

It doesn't have to make any sense if you're determined enough to believe.
