In the televised address, Pence told the crowd: "I bring greetings from the 45th president of the United States of America, President Donald Trump."

But the White House account had Pence saying: "To them and to all of you, it's my great honor to speak to you today, on behalf of a champion of freedom and a champion of a strong national defense, the 45th President of the United States of America, President Donald Trump. (Applause)."


If that's the official transcript, that's a felony violation of the Presidential Records Act.  He was there in an official capacity making a policy speech on behalf of the United States of America. It's on video and audio, and indisputable.

What a bunch of farking idiots.

Meh. They probably just released a copy of the speech he was reading and included the (applause) instruction. He did pause, there just wasn't any applause as expected.

It's possible some grunt just copied and pasted the teleprompter text in, which wouldn't include ad lib.  Dumbass thing to do on an official record.

Mama's Boy correctly and truthfully stated that Defendant Trump is the 45th President of the United States, and I'm sure Mythbusters would find the claim to be plausible that he, in some fashion, sent his greetings to the audience.

When people sit and stare at you in stony silence like they'd stare at a mental patient who just took a dump in his undies and has begun painting the walls with it by the handful, you know they're genuinely happy and excited to be there and approve of the work you're doing.

Is that "Feb 17" February 2017?  That would sound like a slow month for The Donald if it only included his time in office.

The best advice Pence ever got was from Mother:

"When you're speaking in public, just imagine that they're all naked. And standing. And applauding. Except the naked part, that's a mortal sin, and you will have been a very bad boy indeed!"

Pence stuck to the script. If he ad-libbed even one sentence, he woud have called for the Taoiseach of Ireland and his partner to be burned at the stake.

Very 1984 of them. The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.

Some journalist should point out that Biden's crowd size was bigger than Pence's.  At the very least, it would produce something good for the nation.  White House staffers would probably spend about 60 hours trying to refute the claim.  60 hours in a harmless exercise, as opposed to other endeavors probably harmful to the country.

About a hundred years ago we discovered how to record sound. It was originally on wax cylinder but has since upgraded medium through vinyl disc, magnetic tape, and now groups of ones and zeroes on a computer.
Also, there's this optical illusion called "persistence of vision." It allows the brain to witness movement while seeing several still photos in quick succession. Once, film was used to capture this movement. Then mag tape. Now ones and zeroes on a computer are able to record millions of these still images that give the illusion of movement.
In fact, all of this technology has become readily available to most of the world's citizens. But I guess this administration has not yet caught wind of these myriad advances in recording technology.

they are attempting to create a fraudulent record of history.  This event was a front page story
on multiple news outlets, with video of the event! It's a blatant lie..

I think my question would be, is their "transcript" what the White House is saying the Vice President actually said; or is their "transcript" what the White House is saying was written for the Vice President to say, but he deviated from the prepared remarks.  I would guess that the prepared remarks included a notation to pause for applause after he mentions Trump.
 
2019-02-20 12:08:35 AM  
The thing is, is Donald Trump believes his lies are truth. He works on the assumption he can create reality. He's actually finding out for the first time that's not true, but it will take some time for it to get through his skull and that hair.

I meant to say:

That's not differing "slightly" you farking pussies. Grow some stones and call it like it farking it, they completely revise history.
