Donald Trump Made Up Stuff 71 Times In An Hour

And that’s counting the commercial breaks.

WASHINGTON — Critics of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign often complain about the way the media has reported on his candidacy. It is not just the incessant coverage that riles them. It’s the perceived lack of fact-checking.

Trump is known for making outlandish and dubious claims with little connection to the truth. The press corps, these critics argue, allows him to float along in a perpetual state of unreality.

The truth is, Trump is routinely fact-checked. It’s just that he makes so many statements in such a rapid and continuous fashion that it becomes virtually impossible to keep up.

On Wednesday, The Huffington Post assigned five and a half reporters to look into a roughly 12,000-word transcript of Trump’s town hall event on CNN the night before. It took us hours, but in all, we found 71 separate instances in which Trump made a claim that was inaccurate, misleading or deeply questionable. That’s basically one falsehood every 169 words (counting the words uttered by moderator Anderson Cooper), or 1.16 falsehoods every minute (the town hall lasted an hour, including commercial breaks).

So, some little left-wing "group" writes a letter to the justice department and nothing happens.

This story is so laughable even the liberal media is not reporting it.

The ballroom dancing thing isn't something big with the liberal crowd right now.
Did y'all see obama trying to Tango in Argentina?
One would think he could dance but alas; he embarrassed our country again.

The dancing (attempt) while murdered American citizens were being taken to morgues in Brussels was just classless and disrespectful but that has been constant during his failed presidency.

At least he's having a positive impact someplace...


Donald Trump makes Mexican mask factory great again
A Halloween mask factory in Jiutepec, Mexico, is busier than ever. And it's all thanks to Donald Trump.

The company, Caretas REV, has two factories in Jiutepec, a city of nearly 200,000 in the central Mexican state of Morelos.

Trump's fame in the United States -- and infamy in Mexico -- drove demand for the unflattering Trump mask, which picked up last fall when it became clear that the Republican presidential candidate was going to be a serious contender.

Ricardo Esponda, a third-generation co-owner of the mask company and an executive in charge of innovation and design, takes us to one of the multiple shops inside the factory, a warehouse where mostly female workers put the finishing touches on the masks before they're shipped out.

He points toward one worker who's neatly placing strands of artificial hair onto a latex mask.

"We weren't making this mask with hair at first," Esponda said, "but some of our customers asked for it. It's got to have hair."

The one with hair is the deluxe model, and sells for $23 in the United States. The standard all-latex version is $19.95. Caretas REV has since produced tens of thousands of Donald Trump masks.

Yet another dismal day for Muleman. Your life sounds painful and exhausting. Are you capable of experiencing joy? Or did mommy and daddy take that away from you?

Anyone ever see the SNL skit "Debbie Downer"? Reminds me of Muleman.

Obama has never demonstrated the class and dignity of the office.
When American citizens were murdered by Islamic Extremist Terrorists in Brussels, obama goes to a baseball game with a communist dictator in Cuba.
At least in Cuba obama was comfortable.

Obama has more class than you will ever have......and he definitely understands the dignity of the office...

I have read the posts by right wingers that have just vilified Obama and his family - in despicable ways - and he has never stooped to their level, and has ignored them for 7 years - I know I wouldn't have been able to....

Obama accepted a Herculean task. Throughout that task he has been an extraordinary leader. I've disagreed with him on many issues but I know history will judge him to be one of the finest Presidents in American History.

That will happen. Obama is the Jackie Robinson of Presidents. The bar was set higher for him. Way higher. And by God President Obama high jumped right over that bar.

That's just my opinion.

I have a friend that hates him. I think primarily because of Obama Care. Last year my friend finally caved, went on the exchange and purchase a policy for his family. Within weeks his youngest son swallowed a tooth pick and had to go to the emergency room. A couple more weeks pass and his eldest son gets hit by a car while he is riding his skateboard. A couple more weeks pass and his wife suffers a cluster of strokes. She spends more than 3 weeks in the hospital for tests. Finally, through the testing, they discover she has ovarian cancer. Now she is going through an arduous and debilitating treatment of chemo.

If my friend had not been forced into buying health insurance because of the Affordable Care Act he might very well be homeless and bankrupt now.

That is no exaggeration. I think he owes Obama a huge thanks. But to talk to my friend its like Obama caused his entire string of bad luck.

Have you noticed that GE has a nationwide advertising campaign going on right now looking for employees? I know my wife is constantly hiring. About 4 years ago her work force consisted of about 4500 people. Now she has nearly 8000 people working for her and she needs more. The company has been building in all sorts of incentives to persuade people to take the jobs and then to keep the long term employees happy and productive.

This wasn't the situation when Obama took office.

When Cruz talks "Republicans are uniting behind our campaign because they want a leader with real solutions who will bring back jobs, freedom, and security." I really got to wonder where he has been for the last 8 years.

Any person with a grasp on reality cannot deny that Obama has made this country better.

He has done a great job.

Obama's cut and run policy in Iraq allowed ISIS to burst forth and kill tens of thousands.

His failed attempt at regime change in Libya created a terrorist controlled country.

Division in the U.S. is at its highest level in history.

His failure to secure our borders has caused the biggest inflow if illegals ever and created and entitlement society which the country cannot afford.

Illegal felons are killing American Citizens and not deported.

Over regulation is crushing small businesses.

His policy of f 'em, let 'em die has killed hundreds of veterans and no one is held accountable.

Obamacare is diminishing the quality of healthcare, closing rural hospitals and driving up cost to the point many can not afford the deductibles and therefore prohibiting people from medical services.
More than half of the so-called "healthcare exchanges" have failed forcing millions to lose health insurance.

Obama's foreign policy is a complete failure.

And the list goes on.

This is a lie and patently false.

He has deported more illegals than any other president in history - as a matter of fact, he has almost deported more than all other presidents COMBINED. Look it up. I'm not going to do it for you.

How is that being SOFT on illegal immigrants? Oh yeah, it is if you live in the Bizarro world.

Typical right - wing horsesh!t.

You got any PROOF to back that up? If so, SHOW IT. Back it up with FACTS.

Your ridiculously non - factual response still doesn't explain HOW or WHY all the other presidents were so derelict in THEIR duties at protecting the borders.

CIA director says agency will not use controversial interrogation techniques again

CIA Director John Brennan has said that his spy agency will not use controversial interrogation techniques, such as waterboarding, even if ordered to do so by a future president.

Brennan made the remarks in an interview with NBC News released Sunday.

"I will not agree to carry out some of these tactics and techniques I've heard bandied about because this institution needs to endure," he said. Brennan later added that he would "not agree to having any CIA officer carrying out waterboarding again."

President Barack Obama banned waterboarding shortly after taking office in 2009. However, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump has repeatedly promised that he would revive the practice if elected.

At a Republican debate in New Hampshire this past February, Trump said he would "bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding", an interrogation technique in which a detainee is made to feel that he is drowning.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Trump's greatest rival for the GOP nomination, said at that same debate that he would not make "widespread use" of the practice, but added that he did not believe the practice amounted to torture.

In December 2014, Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee released a report claiming the interrogation methods used by the CIA in the months after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks were "brutal and far worse" than the agency had represented to lawmakers.

The report alleged that the agency had tortured several suspected Al Qaeda detainees held in secret facilities in Europe and Asia. CIA officials claimed at the time that the interrogation methods produced valuable and actionable intelligence, including information that led U.S. forces to the whereabouts of Usama bin Laden in 2011.

That assessment was echoed by Brennan himself in his response to the report, which read in part, "The intelligence gained from the program was critical to our understanding of Al Qaeda and continues to inform our counterterrorism efforts to this day."

However, during his confirmation hearings to be CIA director in February 2013, Brennan said the intelligence committee's report "raises serious questions about the information that I was given" about the effectiveness of enhanced interrogation techniques.

Brennan later added, "I do not know what the truth is."

Ummm, yes?

Although his kids must not think so since they didn't register to in time to vote in the NY primary (must register 25 days in advance). Trump didn't know the rules either and has said that he thought they had to be registered a year in advance so they missed it, when in reality they could have registered up until late-March. It is also telling that at 32 and 34 years old, neither of them have ever bothered to vote...kinda funny watching them stump for dad knowing neither one of them can actually cast a vote for him in the NY primary.

NC's own "esteemed" Senator Richard Burr, who also happens to be chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, showed up to vote in the NC Primary and had NO ID, so he had to cast a provisional ballot.

How ironic that one of the staunchest defenders of NC's voting laws, which are the among the most restrictive in the nation and were clearly rewritten to disenfranchise anyone who votes democratic - blacks, non - whites, even students (student picture IDs are now not accepted) was bitten in the ass by the same law that he and all his cronies in the state legislature rammed through in the wake of Obama's election(s).

You can't make this sh!t up.

The Kansas Secretary of State, Kris Kobach (he wrote that Arizona bill that raised all that ruckus and is serving as a top Trump advisor on how to get Mexico to pay for that wall) had to issue a statement yesterday. Seems that the Spanish voting instructions had erroneous information on what forms of ID are acceptable as well as an incorrect deadline date...telling voters reading the Spanish voting guide that you can register up to 15 days before the election. The English version had the correct info, you can register 21 days prior.

Kobach blamed "an administrative error."

If the govt. was going to stop the torture interrogation techniques, there would not be any rendition sites in any countries, yet there are and always will be. After the scandal of the torture at Abu Ghraib, it should have NEVER happened again at Gitmo. It just shows you they do not plan to stop and you haven't even heard some of what they do.
