I'm sure he'll bellow "FAKE NEWS!", but I have to wonder how a question can be fake?

I don't know about you, but from a front page that has Trump, Darth Hoodie, and the "Codfather" I'm rooting for the Codfather.

Just hit refresh and the tweet will show up. That's what Twitter does for me on mobile too, and a refresh always shows the post. I assume it's something to do with something like anti-spam or bot measures.

So black teenagers were cleared  by DNA evidence of killing a woman in a park. The prosecutor thought they didn't do it. Trump called for these kids to be put to death. When told that the kids were innocent he said, well they probably are guilty of something and should be put to death anyways.

People NOW starting to think Trump is racist?

I'm starting to think that maybe this Donald Trump guy may not have been a particularly great choice for President. I don't know, I'm kind of indecisive.

It's like that episode of Modern Family where Phil takes out a newspaper ad calling for black kids to be put to death. It's just a real estate thing.

Literally the first headline ever written about Donald Trump was "Major Landlord Accused of Antiblack Bias in City".  The DOJ accused him of violating the Fair Housing Act... in 1973.  He was too racist for the Nixon Administration.

Mr. President, what's going on with your hair?

Mr. President, seriously?
Mr. President, when are you planning to resign?

It's Twitter's Fark protection. Cut off the "?utm_source=fark&utm_medium=website&u​tm_content=link&ICID=ref_fark" and it'll load fine. Happens to me every single time.

/I get hit by this almost every single time. It baffles me that a site as large as Twitter, that can clearly take the volume of traffic of a Fark link, would do referrer-based throttling like that.

NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT THE BLACKMAIL,PAYOFF AND COVERUP OF A WOMAN TRUMP HAD SEX WITH IN 2006. IT WAS COVERED UP RIGHT BEFORE THE ELECTION. SHE'S JUST ONE OF THREE WE LEARNED ABOUT THIS WEEK WITH ALMOST 300K IN HUSH MONEY PAID OUT. 
And that ladies and gents is where we are with Trump. 
That these scandals didn't even make the lead of the news cycles. It was shiatholes and missile warnings.

Umm no. the only thing I said was wrong was it was a rape not a murder.

You ever think of googling before making an accusation that someone is wrong?

There was a 6-part story about him in the NYT in 1981 about him running people out of a rent-controlled building he had purchased by going so far to have trash sent from his other buildings and dumped in the hallways. It went on for months. Mushrooms were growing in the halls. 

In the 1990s there was behind the scenes interview with him conducted over a few weeks and published in Playboy. It's basically the short story version of the Wolff book. He tried to bribe the author not to publish the story. Author's next project was writing Black Hawk Down.

But the day liberals stop being hypocrites will probably come shortly after universal heat death. By the way, Obama was out attacking Fox News again, guess you'll be shrieking about "attacking the 1st Amendment"... right?

Your own link contradicts what Corvus said.

Corvus: "...he [Trump] said, well they probably are guilty of something and should be put to death anyways."

The CNN link you cite: "Trump did not specifically call for the youths charged in the jogger attack to be executed."
