This is CNN we are talking about. No one is calling the BBC fake news.

Anyone who understands the words fake and news aren't calling very much "fake news" at all, I'd imagine. The CNN we are talking about is the genuine CNN that has been doing the same kind of reporting of actual news for decades.

"Fake news" is virtually meaningless, except as a distraction to argue about.

Re: President Trump

Fake lies? Phony idiocy?

https://www.wired.com/story/presiden...-and-untruths/

Quote:
It turns out if you want to talk about lies, St. Augustine is the main dude. “Whoever utters that which he holds in his mind either as belief or as opinion, even though it be false, he lies not,” Augustine wrote around 395 AD. “Not that he is without fault, although he lie not, if either he believes what he ought not to believe, or thinks he knows what he knows not, even though it should be true.” In other words, Augustine applies intent as a criterion. If you don’t know what you’re talking about, you’re a dope, but you’re not necessarily a liar.
So by Augustine’s lights, if you think the President is a cretin (or at least uninterested in the details of governance), then you don’t also get to call him a liar. Another story in the Times suggested that even senators don’t think the President understands the upper house’s version of a health care bill. Plenty of first- and second-hand accounts of conversations with Trump say or imply that he doesn’t know stuff. That’d put him on the “dope” side of the dope/liar spectrum.

What happens to your stroking of "genius" here when nazi-likes have shown up?

Are you standing on some sideline denying their boots are aimed for the neck while lies pour from their mouths?
Nothing remotely 'nazi' has been written or read by me or anyone else in this thread, and Donald Trumps presidency has next to nothing in common with Hitlers Third Reich.

He is just so enamored with the idea of a big strong authoritarian leader and is willing to mold whatever reality he sees fit to support that leader.

Lots of people would have been Nazis in the 30s who aren't Nazis today. I sure hope I wouldn't have been but I don't know for sure how I would have reacted, it's possible I would have.

But wil? lol, zero question at all there.

Re: President Trump



Is "viciously racist, antisemitic" nazi-like?

I'll take my answer off-air.

You are the one with a tired old repetitive denial-accusations. You'd be pwned by racists and not even know it- like a sucker.

Re: President Trump

lol maybe your -ist and -ophic labels would have meaning if progressives didn't use those with everyone they dislike while being massively hypocritical.

classic progressive hypocrisy this week

step 1. calls Kelly Anne Conway an ugly hag that looks like a botched post op transgender
step 2. trump tweets about Mika B.'s facelift
step 3. trump is a sexist for commenting on Mikas looks!!!!

your labels have no meaning. So yeah, trump tweeting from a twitter that some progressive calls racist and antisemitic means nothing.

Your whining and crying about racism is meaningless and irresponsible. You instantly deny, no pause for investigation and have lame scapegoat type excuses. Weak.

Re: President Trump

even if I were to buy into your assertion that that /u/ Han*******Solo is a david duke type. Which I don't for reasons stated above.

that would still not tarnish The President in any way shape or form.

Goofy admitting his potential support for the Nazis! Unbeliveable.

I know for a fact if I was around during that time I would have told the Nazis shove it! I aint following no such orders. Jerks!

So you are a distorter full of excuses. Perfect for the trump regime: pathetic. Glad to capture your knee-jerk denial in real time.

Re: President Trump

Nothing about any of this is even remotely controversial. When you have Fat Hitler promising the bigliest health care and jobs to the white people, so, like, socialist goodies but only for people of a certain nationality or national identity, guess what, turns out we have a word for that.
