Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, October 08, 2017

U.S. President Donald Trump lashed out Saturday at the "fake" journalists who criticized him for throwing rolls of paper towel to Puerto Rican hurricane victims. The paper towels, he said, were beautiful. And soft. "They had these beautiful, soft towels. Very good towels," Trump said in a conversation that aired on Christian television network Trinity Broadcasting. ... Trump, as so often, called the media "fake." And then he, it seemed, took credit for coining the word "fake." "I think one of the greatest of all terms I've come up with is 'fake.' I guess other people have used it, perhaps, over the years, but I've never noticed it," he said.

Donald John Trump is the living embodiment of the word "fake." In every aspect of his life he's no more authentic than Cheese Whiz. He's even the same color.

The "Priming the pump" lie is so obvious he's lucky no WWII vets are around to slap him for that.

Everything a con-man does in a con is fake, which everyone with half a brain understands. Trump was not the first or the last. Its a common occurrence in fantasyland.

Dead on! "Conservative" voters don't "think" things; they believe things. You can reason with someone who thinks, but not with someone who believes. They simply reject facts that don't align with their beliefs.

What's next? He going to claim to be the creator of the question mark?

Some times he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy, the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

OMG, this man is a complete circus clown.

Well he invented "Prime the pump", why not "Fake"?

I can't wait until he comes up with "We the People..."

The evidence shows: Donald Trump cannot retain an ally, keep a promise, uphold a principle, maintain a story, change a mind or show a heart.

Yes they do. The believe every word he utters. They are that stupid.

Spoke with several this weekend. Trumpcare would have been great. The tax cuts pay for themselves and Dotard will pay more. Etc.

For those old enough to remember...recall the standing joke that involved the USSR claims

that they invented............whatever, fill in the blank.

It's like the Russia and Lying had a baby and they named him trump

Terms he's actually invented:

-Covefefe
-Unpresidented
-MAGA

All three sound like someone stroking out when spoken.
