As Trump's World Turns: When The Polls Don't LIe; FIre The Pollsters

Image result for abc news trump

Watch at the 1:00-minute mark. Trump with ABC's George Stephanopoulos. After Trump's internal pollings numbers were leak showing he is training Joe Biden in all states, Trump plays the "Lie Card" Actually, he went off the record in the interviews an ordered a call to someone on his tea with a request for polling numbers. You will notice the cameras do not return to the limo interview. Or, is his behavior best represented by the word delusional?" 
"I don't believe those polls. There's no way [former Vice President Joe Biden] beats me in Texas," Trump told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on Tuesday during an exclusive interview. "No, my polls show that I'm winning everywhere."
ABC's piece report Trump continued with his diatribe response to the point of using the "T" word (truth). There isn't a person in industrialized Earth who doesn't know that Trump is absent the ability, to tell the truth. (Washington Post April 2019)
"Nobody showed you those polls because those polls don't exist, George. Those polls don't exist. I'm losing in 15 out of 17 states? Those polls don't exist," Trump said. "I just was given a meeting with my pollster who I frankly don't even believe in pollsters if you want to know the truth, you just run a campaign and whatever it is, it is, but I just had a meeting with somebody that's a pollster and I'm winning everywhere, so I don't know what you're talking about."

On June 10th, 2019 The New York Times reported Trump knew was formed of the polling data and instructed his staff to deny the numbers.  

After working through the proceeding, you have to know what comes next.  Trump fired the pollsters. Crooks And Liars.

As Trump's World Turns: The Ugliness Of Hate And The Pathetic State of Trump

Imagine That...

The Ugliness of Hate

The following Media Matters news segment appeared on CNN.  

CNN"S ALISYN CAMEROTA conducted a rather long segment with a young white man who seems to have awakened to the ills of white supremacy as ti manifest in American. He spoke of being radicalized via YouTube; the res is as follows (including the brief segment excerpt).
ALISYN CAMEROTA (CO-HOST): How does a liberal young man become a follower of the "alt-right"? You're about a meet a man who says he was radicalized by "alt-right" figures via their persuasive YouTube videos. He believed their extremist conspiracies for years. But then he somehow deradicalized himself, and he's now working to help others get out. Joining us now is Caleb Cain. Caleb, thank you so much for being here to tell your personal story. I think it is so fascinating. So just to bring people up to speed, somewhere around, as I understand it, 2015, you were sort of at loose ends. You had dropped out of college, you were looking for direction. I think -- correct me if I'm wrong -- at the time you would describe yourself as liberal. And somehow online you found your way to these "alt-right" videos and websites. And then describe what happened. 
CALEB CAIN: Yes, ....... (The video follows)

The Pathetic State of Trump

Time to move to our ever-present lying White House occupant. If you follow any current events you know the nation elected a pathological liar. Therefore, we expect daily lies for Trump and each of his inner cabal.  The extent of lying from the White House is so pervasive, GOP members of Congress and false Democrats who site in the US Congress are finding themselves revealing the level to which they will also lie to the American people. As we move through the 360-degree essential reality of Trump and his congressional stooges and staff, there is another critical group which wears the same label of shame. US conservatives who facilitate Trumpism via overt and obvious willingness to accept any and every lie as well as tacit conservatives who are willing to ignore historic poor leadership form the GOP and record lying form Trump and company. 

The latest and most disturbing example of a Trump lie was offered to the world yesterday. While speaking about reports Kim Jong Un's brother was a CIA asset, Trump clear stated the prospect of such an operation would not be part of the manner in which he conducts business. Wouldn't you know, today he seeks to modify his comments with one of the zaniest yet validating statements he has uttered since taking office  His words clearly show he speaks with a brain which has a core in lying.

Watch and listen...

Did the headline in the Crooks & Liars piece read with the word "Bizarrely"?  Well, Trump topped that late yesterday.
Imagine that... literally inviting foreign involvement and meddling in US general elections.  

After such a statement any rational person should question Trump's recent adjective-laden criticism of Joe Biden.  A US president stooped to calling a potential election opponent, "dumb", "less mental", "not so good looking", and in some cases "sleepy". If Trump's remarks to ABC's Stephanopoulos doesn't show his criticism of Bide as something of a mirror reflection of the nation's 45thh, this linked CNN segment with Rick Santorum may remind of you

Speaking of CNN, conjure up and consider thoughts of an international news (and entertainment) network which pays conservatives to come on air to defend the wild manifestations and insanity of Trump. It is the existential reality of my use the word "presstitute." Santorum is a classic presstitute. 

And how did Trump's favorite news show handle his bumbling revelation?  Media Matters offers how Fox offers the ugly to its viewers. 

Another example of the most non-presidential person to sit in the White House was recently published via Snopes. "...cleanest air in the world."

This is an update to a post from earlier today:  Herewith is yet another example of the intellect form the Oval Office. Yes, he typed "whales" Instead of "wales". There is something about it that leads me to the prospect it wasn't a typographical error. Crooks And Liars.
Trump Ridiculed For His 'Prince Of Whales' Tweet

Imagine all of that.....

Giuliani: Rumor's Made Me Do it

Rudy Giuliani's early week interview with Trump facilitator Sean Hannity led to a Sunday morning news show appearance which rivals the best of The Three Stooges. When comments lead to an unquestionable need to run and hide it speaks to the pathetic state of the person. One can either appreciate the humor or accept the reality of an unhinged talking head.

Watch two minutes of the very worst of Giuliani as he figuratively runs and hides behind a strategy of "rumors" led to this commons about a Trump payment to Stormy Daniels. 

Payments to other women?
Hiding from comments to Sean Hannity also led to this 50-second clip with Stormy Daniels's Attorney: Michael Avenatti.

Train wreck?

Sunday Morning Part Deux: Politifact Adds More To the GOP Sunday Monring Show Charade

....OOOOPs and one truth speaking Democrat!

Fact-checking the May 18 news shows

By Aaron Sharockman

Published on Sunday, May 18th, 2014 at 4:03 p.m.

Karl Rove’s comments this month about a concussion suffered by Hillary Clinton in 2012 bled over into the Sunday news shows, where pundits debated what Rove said and what Rove meant.

Rove was quoted in the New York Postlast week saying Clinton spent 30 days in the hospital (she did not), "And when she reappears, she's wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury?" (They are not.)

Rove himself appeared on  Hillary ClintonSunday to defend his comment.

"I’m not questioning her health," he said. "What I’m questioning is whether or not it’s a done deal if she’s running. And she would not be a human if she did not take this into consideration. She’ll be 69 at the time of the 2016 election. If she gets elected and serves two terms, she’ll be 77."

Fox political analyst Brit Hume sided with Rove and said the media "overlooked" telling comments made by former President Bill Clinton last week about his wife.

Etch a Sketch Anyone?

Re-blogged from Mario Piperni Dot Com

Revisiting Romney’s Etch a Sketch With Reince Priebus

Romney Etch A Sketch Moment   :
You shake an Etch-a-Sketch, Reince, not “tilt” it.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on Sunday brushed off criticism of the organization’s debate ultimatum from a former senior advisor to Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign.
“This Week” host George Stephanopoulos asked Priebus to respond to Eric Fehrnstrom’s tweet, which said it was “bad optics” for the party and a “loser’s game” to ban CNN and NBC from partnering with the RNC for 2016 presidential debates over pending film projects about Hillary Clinton. 
“Well, I don’t know if his Etch a Sketch is on tilt, George,” Priebus said. “I’m not really taking advice from Eric Fehrnstrom right now.” 
The remark referenced Fehrnstrom’s memorable comment on the 2012 campaign trail that seemed to imply Romney would change his position on key issues as need be to get elected. 
“Well, I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign,” Fehrnstrom said. “Everything changes. It’s almost like an Etch-A-Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and restart all over again.” 
Yeah, sure…whatever and who cares. The more important question here is: did the RNC fire Michael Steele for a bozo named Reince Priebus and think they got themselves a better operation? If so, they’re mistaken. I was never a fan of Steele and some of the idiotic stuff he’d say but you did get the impression that Steele was a decent guy who never really believed most of what he said. He was the GOP’s mouthpiece and he said what he had to say in his role as RNC chair. 
Reince Priebus, on the other hand, is an entirely different animal. There is something distinctly slimy about the man that takes in his name, his appearance and the very words he uses to sell the GOP’s latest sack of lies and deception. Priebus’ post election speech about the GOP’s need to reach out to women and minorities was promising but ended up amounting to zilch once the Tea Party growled its disapproval. 
Priebus can mock Fehrnstrom and his Etch-a-Sketch moment all he wants but his refusal to air primary debates on CNN and NBC will harm no one but a political party that desperately needs the votes of women, young people and minorities if it’s to ever have a chance of winning back the White House. 
And for what it’s worth, if you remove all of the vowels from Reince Priebus’ name, you’re left with: RNC PR BS
