And we are supposed to believe the so-called "coffee boy" - Papadopoulos? So the FBI started their "investigation" with his account. But no one in the media touched it. Why? Perhaps there were holes in his account? And then the dossier comes out, but again no one in the media touches it (as its claims cannot be verified). Until, lo and behold, Comey hands Trump the report in January 2107, opening the floodgates for the media to pounce.

Marton, why did the media not act sooner? Because they could not substantiate/verify the accounts/accusations? They knew about the dossier but chose not to report it. Why exactly? In January, Comey, by handing the report to Trump, gave them the ammunition, hence the Buzzfeed article which led to the "investigation" by Mueller.
"no one in the media touched it" You believe it is usual for the media to report on secret FBI investigations that the media are not informed about? Are you for real?

"In January, Comey, by handing the report to Trump" Your timeline is off!
The media had the dossier since October and it was published on Jan 10 2017 by Buzzfeed.
Trump was briefed on the dossier by Clapper in the first week of January; but just a two page summary.

Comey was fired in May, four months after the dossier was published in the media and four months after Trump was briefed on it.

Your story has more holes in it than Swiss cheese

Circulating ancient fake news media links again for some unknown reason that you are sadly incapable of articulating.

You do know it is April 2019?

Which is why it wasn't worth bothering with. Debating her looks good on her cv, not so good on yours.


Anyone can post nonsense and challenge someone to waste their time disproving it, Don Jr said as much in that leaked Vanity Fair interview "Yes my dad lies, you know he lies, I know he lies but they (his supporters) are never going to get that, so we'll win"

You know ... I find your post so amusing as that you feel you have to go "for the jugular" as they say because you assume your viewpoint is correct. And anyone who proffers a different view? Well, you like to denigrate/disparage them as ignorant. As if, your sources and viewpoint are without challenge. Fascinating!

President Trump on Thursday retreated further from his threat to immediately close the southern border, instead saying he would give Mexico a year before taking drastic measures to address drug trafficking and illegal immigration.

A year? So no emergency on the border

What with Trump's U turn on healthcare, the Mueller story refusing to go away and USMCA (the new NAFTA) quietly dying in a corner his wins are withering! USMCA was officially signed on 30 November 2018 but each country's legislature must ratify this agreement and there is little evidence this is happening.

Cannot mess with the "Status Quo" here... You guys are smarter, know better and your sources are beyond repute. Hey, why even have a forum or discussion as your views are clearly unassailable. You guys have it all figured out. Until your views do not pan out... But, that thought never even entered your minds.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

That's hilarious. At the same time, I think the leader of the free world should have more to do than troll twitter, but that's just me.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I agree, the comments on that video are hilarious!

The video itself is incredibly juvenile. Perhaps now you understand why Trump is rated the 45th best president of the USA; an amazing achievement, YUUUUGE, considering there are only 44 to choose between.

Funny, in the same way as I find The Three Stooges funny: i.e. not at all. Although watching the multiply-accused serial woman-abusing, unfaithful porn star shagger* post that pathetic video almost made me laugh at Spanky's sheer lack of self-awareness.


*Allegedly, of course.

It's more that it doesn't appear to be a retweet, but he's gone out of his way (or have his peeps go out of their way) to produce it. It is genuinely astonishing how far the level of debate and decorum has fallen in a few short years.

Better to just let it wash over you...you try and wrestle a pig, you just get dirty and the pig enjoys it.
