AC 360 And Trump Lies; New State Department "Legcaster"

Image result for pants on fire memeWe have archived a number of posts with comment about Trump's lying.  OK, so nothing new there. Our previous posts included what is becoming a weekly tally of Trump lies via the Tampa Bay Times fact checker division, Politifact: (Notice the growing bulge towards the lower portions of the graphic scale below)

While Fox News is carrying the freight on Trump with stories noticeably absent of critical commentary (except for Shepard Smith), MSNBC and CNN (outside of their panel Trump surrogates) aren't buying the Trump Carnival show. Since, we consistently post segments from MSNBC regarding the nation's' Liar-in-Chief posted on MSNBC, we thought a segment form tonight's Anderson Cooper's AC 360 was a good change of pace.

The 360 segment  was developed with regard to a set of Trump weekend tweets.  As we posted a few days back, Trump apparently saw one too many reports of his sinking poll numbers on one too many networks. What does a serial Tweeter do when they want to offer sustenance to their base? They sign-on to their Twitter account, and fire off inane babble to people who soak it up like a sponge in the Sahara Desert at midday.  

Trump's weekend mistake? He again reached into his dwindling bag of tricks and pulled out 2016 Clinton (popular vote) feed from his minions.  Problem!  How can Trump not realize he failed to win that popular vote by 2.8 million votes?  Of course, we state a problem which his minions either do not know (he lost the popular vote BIGLY) or his minions do not care about his lying.  

The carnival barker fed his supporters:

New polls out today are very good considering that much of the media is FAKE and almost always negative. Would still beat Hillary in .....

...popular vote. ABC News/Washington Post Poll (wrong big on election) said almost all stand by their vote on me & 53% said strong leader.
Anderson Cooper took the "popular vote" tweets as a component of a great piece regarding media responsibility to call out Trump as he meanders down the Conservative Wizard of OZ path to LA-LA-Land.

While unrelated to Trump's daily deluge of lies and misinformation (couple with fumbling administration ineptitude) we thought we would end on a very digressive note.

Take a look and listen to the newest member of the Trump Administration.  Apparently, a Fox News "Legcaster" is joining the State Department as a spokesperson. Now this is an intriguing dynamic. Is it possible the White House will order interior designers to develop a Fox News-like couch or chair platform from which the newly hired spokesperson will speak?

Yes, of course...... Is there a person who reads here who actually believes Tillerson recruited the "legcaster" into Trump's herd of presstitutes?
