It is pretty damn funny watching the media establishment scold people for irresponsible reporting after every fucking thing that happened from the moment Donald fucking Trump decided to run for President. Talk about your pot and kettle.

These are the same people who, for the most part, had absolutely no problem letting Peter Thiel destroy Gawker, so I'm not surprised. Buzzfeed, as an outlet, is far more cautious than Gawker ever was, and has done some truly brilliant reporting in all areas, covering stories that no one else is covering. But to the establishment, they're still that site with the polls and the gifs.

Hmm, this confuses me... it makes me want to cheer Donald Trump.

 

I feel dirty. I need a shower.

 

Now I feel dirtier.

So, wait, does Trump like golden showers or not?

 

Because if he does, it would be a bummer for everyone who is hoping to piss on his grave in the future.

 

On another note...holy shit, what a mess of a press conference.

How can anyone look/hear Obama's last speech and then this and still think Trump is presidential is beyond me.

Passed along by a Facebook-friend:

 

"I guess Trump was a Goldwater Republican after all!"

Let's just say I'd like a little more of "Tokyo" to still be standing when the dust settles.  Or at least hope for a "Tokyo" that I actually care about still being functional.

Listening to Obama's farewell speech. Someone upthread said it, and I'll just amen it: what an incredible contrast with the Human Cheeto's presser today. Yeah, Obama commits some very standard exaggerations and slanted claims - something every politician does - but it's clear that he doesn't view himself as the focal point of the talk. 

 

I'm going to miss him.

post #4369 of 32584

This Golden-shower gate is just Obama and DMC using the Portman-Murphy amendment of the NDAA against Trump. What happen once Trump is in office? For the next 8 to 16 years every Dem or liberal will have it done to them, but it all right, because the NDAA is apart of Obama legacy as President.

Great news!  There's a sale on Trump hats and t-shirts at Trump Tower.  Not-so-surprising news: the merchandise was made in China:

Trump would have hated being president in the best of circumstances, with an actual mandate.  Starting off with the press and CIA already actively working against him (which mind you, is interpreting recent events in the light most favorable to him) is a sign of rough times to come.  

 

Lucky for us he has no compunction about dragging the entire country down into the muck with him.

post #4379 of 32584
We are coming at the end of the Obama era. The media are always in the tank for the powers that be. You will not recognize the Mainstream Media in 2 years.
 
The best put down of the media ever.

It'll be interesting to see how this sort of thing plays out.  The whole "liar MSM" thing has been built up so gradually to include...well pretty much everyone except Fox in certain quarters it seems.  In a way, now that Trump is almost in, continuing to 'campaign' like this and whip up the hatred might actually be adding credence to people/outlets the Right have been gradually trained to ignore completely over the years.

 

Like others I fully expect much of the press to just roll over and avoid controversy with the administration as much as possible in a bid to hang on to whatever friendly access they can (especially TV).  But here they're not toadying just yet.  So that's something.

Cooper and Conway having a bit of a barny at the moment about "what exactly was so inaccurate" 

 

Also like the gag (can't site who it came from) that Ann Coulter is what you get if you feed KellyAnn Conway after midnight.

Same.  And it will stick.  I mean, I don't know if Richard Gere ever did have a gerbil stuck up his ass, but that story still does the rounds

Any sort of lie, false innuendo, smear, etc? So, why do you oppose Trump exactly ur just like him omg!

post #4389 of 32584

I just remember Trump being behind birtherism and then laugh as all this stuff just squirts out. Fake or not it's karma for him being a complete asshole of a human being for most of his adult life.

The more this goes on, the less fire there seems to be behind all this smoke.


The article itself is a little misleading. Just because intelligence is unvetted doesn't mean it's automatically disinformation.

Trump employees were standing over journalists' shoulders and checking their notes today:

Reporters weren't allowed to see the folders Trump displayed for the press conference:

 

https://tewitter.com/CNNPolitics/status/819298681643995136

 

So, where they just stacks of blank paper?

 

I wouldn't put it past him.  We did eventually find out that those steaks he displayed during a conference months ago weren't even Trump steaks.

Yes. This isn't a troubling sign at all. Nope. Totally normal behavior! Believe me!

I bet they were just stacks of paper. No doubt in my mind whatsoever.

Welp, the Republicans in the Senate just took a big step towards repealing the ACA in the dead of night, on a nearly-party line 51-48 vote (Rand Paul actually broke with the Repubs to join the Dems - his concern is that there's no replacement for the ACA at this time; Feinstein was unable to vote, ironically, due to a small surgery). And it was all of it - pre-existing conditions, health care for vets, the lot. They even threw in the CHIP program - Hillary's crowning accomplishment of the 90s - in, for laughs.

Al Franken and Elizabeth Warren were stopped from even speaking because why should representatives of people who support the ACA be allowed to speak, am I right?

California has more ACA enrollees than any other state (not a surprise, considering the size).  I can see Jerry Brown and the state's legislature stepping up (sinlge payer?) since Republicans can't even figure out a back-up plan all these years later, but the South is pretty much fucked, isn't it?  Kentucky just gave its governorship away to the Republican Party for the first time in almost a century, so there won't be support there to help people in need.  And John Bel Edwards likely won't get what he needs in Louisiana.  Ouch.

 

At this point, Dems should just campaign on single payer for the next two years, while Trump shits out his mouth and Paul Ryan explains why people with cancer just need to work nine jobs or something because he was tired of seeing rich people pay more in taxes.

 

America, don't get cancer for the next few years.
