Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, November 24, 2017

Donald Trump returned to a favourite subject on Thursday, telling a US coast guard audience the air force was ordering a new plane that was "almost like an invisible fighter".

The plane in question, the F-35, is not invisible, though it is unusually small and designed to be less visible to radar than conventional aircraft. Its development, however, has proved all too visibly costly and riddled with problems.

Trump first startled reporters with talk of an invisible plane in October, when he discussed the F-35 at a military briefing in hurricane-hit Puerto Rico.

Amazing job," Trump said then. "So amazing we are ordering hundreds of millions of dollars of new airplanes for the air force, especially the F-35. You like the F-35? ... You can't see it. You literally can't see it. It's hard to fight a plane you can't see."

I'm... pretty sure he meant radar invisible. But have all the insanity you want with it. Jesus.

New term: "Trump-splain'".

A pitiful lifetime pursuit.

I'm... pretty sure he doesn't know what radar is.

#7 Hillary-splain this for me: "I have a public policy, and a private policy". Told to a group of bankers paying her $500,000 for a speech.

Hillary was the most corrupt and evil politician I have ever seen in my entire life (Bush was only an easily manipulated tool). I voted Democrat for thirty years, until she changed my mind.

She said things like "I take my marching orders from the Mother-ship", referring to the CFR. She was a neocon war-monger that would have gotten us into a proxy war with Russia in Syria. She brought slavery back to Libya. She sold out everything that matters for money and power, even running a fake charity financed by foreign governments seeking access.

Trump may be a giant douche, but he's no Hillary. She was an actual pro when it comes to evil and corruption.

"Hillary-splain this for me: "I have a public policy, and a private policy". Told to a group of bankers paying her $500,000"

First, that's not what she said, so putting quotes around that phrase is, at best, incorrect.

Second, "Told to a group of bankers paying her $500,000 for a speech" is a lie as well.

"Hillary was the most corrupt and evil politician I have ever seen in my entire life"

Pretty easy when you're either making up lies, or willingly believing them.

"even running a fake charity financed by foreign governments seeking access."

Ahhh, proving my point, once again.

- a fake charity financed by foreign governments seeking access.

OK, but only because Alex Jones says so.

#12 Please correct me as to the quote and the amount, then. Or you can just keep up your usual BS, I don't care.

Why don't you do your own damned research before posting like an idiot? You look like a fool, making up quotes and paydays.

"Or you can just keep up your usual BS, I don't care"

My irony meter is pegging.

Please correct me as to the quote...

"both a public and a private position"

Um, the plane is invisible on most radar's. I believe that's what Trump is talking about.

I think you liberals quest to make Trump look stupid is really starting to make you liberals look stupid.

"I think you liberals quest to make Trump look stupid is really starting to make you liberals look stupid."

Your first "liberals" should have an apostrophe, as it's a possessive.

But, by all means, tell us more about how stupid other people are.

Like most Trumpets you "believe" a lot of ridiculous things. You believe what you want to believe and disregard anything that conflicts with those beliefs.

"They said: ‘Well, it wins every time because the enemy cannot see it, even if it's right next to it, it can't see it,'" Trump said.

...even if it's right next to it, it can't see it,'" Trump said.

Well obviously by "right next to it" he was referring to beyond visual range.

Any trump ------- can see that.
