If you look at the toplines, question 29 asked, "As you may know, President Trump's former attorney, Michael Cohen, publicly testified before the U.S. House Oversight Committee. Do you think Cohen told the truth during his testimony before the U.S. House Oversight Committee, or don't you think so?" 44% thought he did, 36% thought he didn't. So, more than half the respondents either thought he was lying or didn't know one way or another. That's very different than whether or not you think Trump is an even bigger liar.

What's interesting (to me at least) is that age was positively correlated with believing Cohen told the truth:

Code:
                     AGE IN YRS..............
                     18-34  35-49  50-64  65+
--------------------------------------------- 
Yes/Told truth       41%    43%    44%    51%
No                   31     35     41     38
DK/NA                28     22     15     11

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

^ Okay, that's different. I mean Cohen really has little incentive to lie at this point. The Republicans wanted to spin it like "He's mad that he didn't get a WH job so he's lying about the President now" which, let's be honest, doesn't make a lick of sense. Trump has every reason in the world to lie... and would happily still lie even if he saw zero upside in doing so.

The afternoon crap has been full of retweets but here is some of his natural bullshit





So people in Alabama are great but in California and in Puerto Rico, where the loss of life was in the thousands, he gave a big fuck you to them. Of the retweet bullshit, this caught my attention


Lil Donnie is retweeting bullshit from a conspiracy theorist who believes in the stupid Deep State.

I realize you’re joking, but were I of the Bible believing persuasion, I would be thinking there’s a good chance of it being true. At a minimum, the Satan of the Bible would fucking love so fully revealing that millions who purport to follow Christ are completely full of shit.

When I heard about this earlier today, the crate in Raiders of the Lost Ark came to mind. (I'm not saying Trump is a Nazi.)

Like in a horror film, if I saw one of those signed bibles in somebody's house, I would very slowly back out the door.

There's a strong Biblical case that could be made for that.

You're closer to the truth than you might think. Scripture does make reference to something along those lines, but these are topics for another thread.

That is not correct. He was charged with eighteen different felonies and convicted on eight. The jury could not come to a unanimous decision on the other ten counts, reports are there jury was voting eleven to one for conviction but the same person voted no on all ten counts, so a mistrial was declared on the ten.

The charges have not been dropped and prosecutors could prosecute them again if they choose.

Ummm your not following DVDP as he follows Trump. Trump as POTUS just makes shit up so his followers believe it is acceptable to do the same. Facts can be “alternative” facts. “Feelings” are more important than reality.

Get with rhe program!

More retweets and bs on the afternoon. And now, Trump turns on Ann Coulter. Dog eat dog.



http

These 2 retweets caught my attention as this is now the lines of attack that the GOP is going to use against the democrats. Infanticide? Really?

It's just satire, folks!

God Offers People of Alabama New Bibles to Replace Ones Trump Signed

MONTGOMERY, Alabama (The Borowitz Report)—God has offered to give the people of Alabama brand new Bibles to replace the ones that Donald J. Trump signed during his visit to the state on Friday.

In a rare public statement from the famously mysterious deity, God said that He was furious at Trump “for defacing My book,” calling Trump’s signature “a wanton act of vandalism.”

“Where was Mike Pence in all of this?” God asked. “These people can’t do anything right.”

God added that He was “dumbfounded” that Trump had taken it upon himself to sign his name on a book to which he had “no relationship whatsoever.”

“I’ve got news for Trump: the Bible is not ‘The Art of the Deal,’ ” God said. “Of course, he didn’t write that book, either.”

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Well this is interesting ... Turns out Trump DID demand his DOJ look into Hillary Clinton, and they obliged. Sounds like Whitaker sent an email to the Utah AG to investigate Uranium One and the Clinton Foundation. Apparently they denied there was a letter about it under oath, and then 2 days before Whitaker was going to leave, they "found" the letter.

SESSIONS LETTER SHOWS DOJ ACTED ON TRUMP’S AUTHORITARIAN DEMAND TO INVESTIGATE CLINTON

The letter from Sessions, and the email from Whitaker to Huber transmitting it, directly contradict DOJ’s prior sworn declaration, including information Whitaker had provided in response to the declarant’s inquiries.

“It strains credulity to believe that the Justice Department didn’t know about this letter when they swore under penalty of perjury that it didn’t exist — you don’t exactly forget about a formal directive to investigate Hillary Clinton signed by Jeff Sessions,” said Evers. “The fact that they only ‘found’ it the same week Matthew Whitaker was heading for the exit makes it hard to see DOJ’s previous denial as anything but a deliberate attempt to conceal the extent to which President Trump’s authoritarian demands were being put into action.”

American Oversight is continuing to seek answers about DOJ’s actions in support of Trump’s unprecedented demands to investigate his perceived political rivals. The case remains in active litigation and we are considering our options to bring the DOJ’s misstatements to the court’s attention and to uncover how they were made in the first place. We’ve also sent multiple follow-up FOIAs to DOJ seeking records about Huber’s investigation.

Unfortunately, Republicans and Democrats can make good points, but then stick to their Abortion (Republicans) and Immigration (Democrats) extremism nonsense which invalidates their entire message. They do this with other subjects as well. I think it's pretty obvious most Dem leaders are protecting Omar because that is their baby politician they want to gain more votes and Omar is a great token ethnic coin as well, which can also be used against any policy that has to do with Israel or Islamic terrorism.

I'm not a believer in the Pro-Infanticide argument that Conservatives are using. My opinion, is women can do with their kid and bodies...whatever and however they want, and if it's so bad, God can figure all that shit out. He's the One who created us.
