Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Trump's re-election campaign sends a memo to television producers on Monday instructing them to "employ basic journalistic standards when booking" six current or former government officials that the campaign said "made outlandish, false claims, without evidence" while on air. The memo targets four Democratic lawmakers, including Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut and Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York, as well as Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez and former CIA Director John Brennan.

This is continuing evidence that Trump thinks he's losing and going to lose, despite yesterday. Not just re-election, but legally.

In a statement, Swalwell said that the "only person who has been caught lying about Russia is Donald Trump."

"If he thinks I've made a false statement, he can sue me. And I'll beat him in court," Swalwell said.

I wonder if the first amendment heroes of the DR will ride in to the rescue on this thread...

This is stupid political posturing by the Trump campaign and will go nowhere.

So never book any Trump mouthpieces.

I hope you have refundable tickets to Trump's impeachment. Outside of the Trump Derangement Syndrome bubble, here in reality world, he's had a pretty good week.

Yap, #9.

Total exhortation.

100% not guilty. Of anything.

Cleanest campaign in history. Read it here.

I can't wait to read the full details of how it happened.

Trump's situation reminds me of the assassination attempt against Hitler in 1944.

Hitler survived the attempt (barely), and was euphoric after. By May of next he'd shot himself in the head.

I plan to scalp mine at a huge profit.

Trump is already over-playing what can already be seen as a weak hand. Didn't we all know he would? I see this morning he's decided to cut the throat of the ACA (again). Someone explain to me why this makes sense in terms of 2020?

The answer is that it doesn't. Trump left this particular fight still on his feet, but trying to cover up a black eye. HE THINKS, however, that things are unfolding according to his genius.

The man's going down. One reason being his need for revenge (a quintessential Hitlerian quality) is already igniting a war.

Is the Trump campaign likewise going to warn Pres Trump about making false claims on Official White House media accounts, e.g., twitter?

#15 | Posted by LampLighter at 2019-03-26 11:59 AM | Reply | Newsworthy 1

Trump hasn't accepted the one basic fact yet that Dems NEVER believe their claims are false. They can have a dream about fairies riding unicorns, wake up and say unicorns and fairies are real, and expect everyone to believe them. If they don't, then the Dem just cries about people needing to be more tolerant of fairies and unicorns.

Once one accepts that simple truth, it's much easier to put yourself in a Dems shoe and understand their intentions. And, regardless what Reps want to believe, most of the time those intentions are good and moral. But that's about where it stops for Dems, once you take away the morality discussion of something and expose the underlying falsehood, they break down.

I hope you think so! I hope Humpy appreciates it!

Should take a little bit of the sting away from the No Good Terrible Very Bad 2 years, 58 days, 2 hours, 5 minutes and 16 seconds Humpy has been in office.

"(America) hasn't accepted the one basic fact yet that (Xtians) NEVER believe their claims are false. They can have a dream about Jesus riding Dinosaurs, wake up and say (Angels) and (Demons) are real, and expect everyone to believe them. If they don't, then the Xtian just cries about people needing to be more tolerant of (Angels) and (Demons)."

See what I did there?

Some fine day, one of you may have an Original Thought.

And it will be a wonderful Thing to behold.

Meanwhile, I won't hold my breath waiting for it.

Pretty good week is having special counsel Mueller deliver evidence of obstructing justice to the attorney general?

Ha ha. Okay then.

Yeah that's why DEMS are still trying to sell trickle down economics after 40 years of proven trickle down failures. That's what DEMS do, isn't it?

Yes. I have had to crank up my THC percentage to the max. I am just so very sad about what has happened to the "Deep State".

Because, apparently it really really Sucks!!!

Nope, not a banana republic at all. This is perfectly normal. And Trump et al did not obstruct justice when they all repeatedly lied about their dealings with Russians and Russia in 2016.

The media can avoid making false claims by NOT quoting Trump.
