"Mr. President, you stink." -- Neil Cavuto, Fox News
The propaganda arm of the GOP, FAUX NOOZ, turns against President Spanky:
Fox News host Neil Cavuto had some harsh words for Donald Trump on Thursday:
"Mr. President, you stink."
[Cavuto]...listed some of Trump’s worst lies and misstatements, including claiming there was widespread voter fraud in the 2016 election and the recent revelation that he repaid his personal lawyer Michael Cohen for $130,000 in hush money given to porn star Stephanie Clifford, known as Stormy Daniels, after he’d repeatedly denied knowing about the situation.
“How can you drain the swamp if you’re the one that keeps muddying the water?” Cavuto asked.
“You didn’t know about that $130,000 payment to a porn star until you did.” Cavuto, one of the few hosts on Fox News who calls out the president, said Trump cannot criticize the press for reporting “fake news” when he repeatedly makes false statements without correction.
Paul Waldman's take on Ghouliani's truth bomb:
Bless you, Rudy Giuliani, you glorious fool.
This is where we are: When one of the president's lawyers tells the truth, it's blockbuster news. That's what happened Wednesday night when Giuliani, a relative newcomer to President Trump's ever-rotating legal team, went on Hannity for what should have been another softball interview.
To everyone's surprise, Giuliani announced that President Trump reimbursed his attorney Michael Cohen the $130,000 Stephanie Clifford (a.k.a. Stormy Daniels) was paid to keep silent about an affair she says she had with Trump. Which means that Giuliani admitted that Trump lied about this, the White House lied about it, and Cohen didn't exactly lie about it, but carefully chose his words to fool everyone into thinking something that was false.
Good work, Rudy!
None of this will have any affect on his worshipping 30 percenters. They will continue to support their mendacious serial adulterer, while slandering Robert Mueller, a man of impeccable integrity and personal honor.
#45 represents the current GOP's values:
"Presumably the calculation of Team Trump is that his base exacts no cost for even the baldest of lies, even one offered as the final you-can-believe-me truth after months of prevarication." --Harry Litman, NYTimes
