Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

This new press secretary apparently isn't in on the magnificent shit show she's joined.

Trump humiliates his press secretary by immediately contradicting her claims about Israel barring Omar and Tlaib


https://www.rawstory.com/2019/08/tru...mar-and-tlaib/

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham on Thursday claimed that President Donald Trump did not put pressure on Israel’s government to bar Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from entering their country.

However, the president blew up her claims just one hour later by sending out a tweet telling Israel to bar Tlaib and Omar.

CNN’s eagle-eyed fact checker Daniel Dale noticed that Grisham at roughly 9 a.m. on Thursday told reporters that “the Israeli government can do what it wants,” while going on to describe reports that Trump told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to stop Omar and Tlaib “inaccurate.”

Trump retweeted this

"There is no evidence that we are in the midst of an epidemic of mass shootings," he said. "The number of incidents and casualties are simply too small to make such claims."The media coverage of shootings often ends up creating a false sense that gun violence—which is at or near historic lows—is ubiquitous and growing," he continued.

Why would that be impeachable? Did that break some law?

I need some of the Trump supporters here to tell me again how the tweets are just "trolling" and not actual policy.

(as if a President of the United States trolling is acceptable behavior anyway)

I'd imagine convincing a foreign country to not allow your political opponents entry breaks at least some unwritten rule. Not that unwritten or written rules matter for shit at this point...

Now is the media's fault that the economy is crashing according to president dipshit. Are his supporters going die on that hill too, since the economy and their 401k is what they all cared about?

By the way, Trump's tweets today are completely reminiscent of Charlie Sheen's winning tweets from 5-7 years ago. Sheen was seen as crazy loon, lost his gig on 2 and 1/2 Men and ended up with HIV. For Trump and his sycophants, it's Thursday

This man has no vision. Just yesterday he blamed Powell for the economy and now it's suddenly the news media.

Trump at least will prove that trickle down economics and deregulation will not magically kickstart the economy:

- massive tax cuts that should but didn't earn themselves back;
- massive deregulation (incl. stepping out of the Paris Accord);
- record budget deficits (barring war or recession/depression);
- projected to do 2.1% GDP growth this year;
- projected to do 165K jobs added per month, the worst since 2010 (Obama did 251K on average in 2014). While services are doing okay, manufacturing is technically in a recession in the USA.

Don't blame it on the news media, Donald. You promised 6% GDP growth (4% in his Contract with the US voter), the elimination of the national debt and more manufacturing jobs than people could imagine.

We are getting average-type GDP growth despite the huge national debt we took on. Trumps keeps talking about the "great" economy, but I don't see it.

You do realize that, as long as Trump is in charge of anything, it's always going to be "great" or "the best ever."

That was his shtick with The Apprentice.

Knowing full well that the Bibi shithead would be more than happy to scream "DELEGITIMIZE!" at the top of his lungs and not allow the Congresswomen in.

You'd think she'd do one Google search before taking the job.

We'd better move fast. With global warming, Greenland could be the next Hawaii!

I think Trump is confused about Greenland being one big golf course.

My biggest worry about going into a recession is that any other President would make changes that will slowly bring the country back to where it needs to be. Trump is going to pull some insane bullshit that will screw the country even more than we already are just to make it through the election.

and just so we’re clear, Trump just called the US Stock Market “fake news”.
