    Trump is not a source of factual information. He had an extensive career of lies, corruption and fraud. He is a pathological liar, from the 1970s, the US Department of Justice successfully sued him for racial discrimination, to his Birtherism lies, to his fraudulent University, his fake charity, to the size of the Inauguration crowd, having lied or misrepresented the facts more than 10,000 times since inauguration. His tweets are often false narratives fed to him from people like Steven Miller, Steve Bannon, Alex Jones and Fox News.

    Trump is a fraud and a conman. Sadly, you believe his every word.

      71% mostly-false to pants-on-fire. Goes up to 85% if you count half-truths.
      Giving less of a damn than ever… Can't laugh at the ignorant if you ignore them!

        Trump states that he is the 'least racist person in the world', which is a complete & utter lie. Not a falsehood, not a misstatement, nothing to ascribe to ignorance. Just a straight up lie.

        • He said that thousands and thousands of black people have called the White House to support his statements about Baltimore.

          Not a shred of evidence was given

          Sort of reminds me of Sarah Sanders when she said she talked with hundreds of FBI people who supported the WH firing of James Comey. She later admitted she talked with no one.

          Sanders is under fire for one lie in particularOne of the lies detailed by Mueller is notable because it indicates Sanders lies about lying. The story begins in May 2017, on the heels of Trump firing then-FBI Director James Comey — a move Trump quickly (and perhaps for him regrettably) admitted was about his frustrations over the FBI’s active investigation of his campaign.


          In order to shield Trump from obstruction allegations, Sanders during a press briefing offered a different rationale for Comey’s firing. She said that “countless members of the FBI” had contacted her to say they had lost confidence in Comey, the implication being that Trump was merely acting in response to the wishes of FBI rank-and-file when he decided to fire him.


          Even at the time, Sanders’s claim about Comey not having the support of the FBI agents was implausible. It was almost immediately contradicted during congressional testimony by Comey’s successor, Andrew McCabe, and as the exchange in the below video indicates, reporters made it clear during a press briefing that they didn’t buy what she was trying to sell them.


          Mueller's report said Sarah Huckabee Sanders told investigators she made comments to reporters that were "not founded on anything."


          When the time came for Sanders to be interviewed under oath by investigators working for the special counsel, her story suddenly changed. She told the special counsel’s team that her comment about FBI agents contacting her to express concerns about Comey was actually a “slip of the tongue” that was not based on anything. So she acknowledged pushing a falsehood to Mueller’s team, but said it was just an accident.


          Since the report, Sanders stuck to the “slip of the tongue” excuse

            • Another of Trump's "fine people"

              Man drops his pants in front of Hispanic family during bizarre racist meltdown: ‘Go back to your country!’

              The 58-year-old Rollins allegedly went outside his home, pulled down his pants in front of a neighbor family, including their 3-year-old child, and verbally harassed them.

              “Go back to Mexico,” Rollins said, according to witnesses. “Go back to your country.”

              ---

              Witnesses said the incident escalated throughout the day, and Rollins called a neighbor woman a “Spanish b*tch” and threatened to set her on fire and burn her home.

              • Did anyone see those teeter totters on the news. They stick them through the spaces in the wall/fence at the US/Mex border and kids are teeter tottering with each other on opposite sides, in separate countries. I thought wow how cool.

                  • So much for Trump's Oath of Office; Laws? Who Cares?

                    Build the whole wall in 15 months

                    Like really, is he off his meds?



                    Trump offers to pardon aides for laws broken in rush to build border wall – report
                    Trump orders officials to ignore environmental rules and ‘take the land’ it needs to build a wall along US-Mexico border
                    Donald Trump has reportedly told aides he will pardon them for any laws they might break to build a wall along the US-Mexico border as he rushes to get hundreds of miles of fencing erected before the 2020 election.

                    The president has ordered officials to ignore environmental rules, fast-track construction contracts valued at billions of dollars and “take the land” needed by eminent domain, according to the Washington Post.


                    Trump also suggested he will pardon them for any laws broken in the process, allegedly telling aides: “Don’t worry, I’ll pardon you.”


                    “He said people expected him to build a wall, and it had to be done by the election,” a former official told the newspaper, which spoke to current and former officials working on the wall.

                    Barr Says Dangling Pardons Could Be a Crime (5:22 p.m.)
                    Barr said Trump has the power as president to issue pardons, including for his family members, but that doing so to obstruct justice could be a criminal offense. Barr also said a president could be held accountable politically for such pardons.

                    • Even China won't do what Trump wants to do to immigrants.

                      Shoot Them in the Legs, Trump Suggested: Inside His Border War

                      https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/01/u...rder-wars.html

                      Privately, the president had often talked about fortifying a border wall with a water-filled trench, stocked with snakes or alligators, prompting aides to seek a cost estimate. He wanted the wall electrified, with spikes on top that could pierce human flesh. After publicly suggesting that soldiers shoot migrants if they threw rocks, the president backed off when his staff told him that was illegal. But later in a meeting, aides recalled, he suggested that they shoot migrants in the legs to slow them down. That’s not allowed either, they told him.

                      “The president was frustrated and I think he took that moment to hit the reset button,” said Thomas D. Homan, who had served as Mr. Trump’s acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, recalling that week in March. “The president wanted it to be fixed quickly.”

                      Mr. Trump’s order to close the border was a decision point that touched off a frenzied week of presidential rages, around-the-clock staff panic and far more White House turmoil than was known at the time. By the end of the week, the seat-of-the-pants president had backed off his threat but had retaliated with the beginning of a purge of the aides who had tried to contain him.

                      Today, as Mr. Trump is surrounded by advisers less willing to stand up to him, his threat to seal off the country from a flood of immigrants remains active. “I have absolute power to shut down the border,” he said in an interview this summer with The New York Times.

                      This article is based on interviews with more than a dozen White House and administration officials directly involved in the events of that week in March.

                      • ^Snakes & alligators, Trump has been watching too many B grade horror movies. Why doesn’t he just commercialize the border wall by turning it into a tourist attraction for his base. Build Trump resorts that specialize in migrant safaris, take guests on night patrols, combat gun ranges to simulate migrant takedowns etc.

                          • Trump just is a man that misses the good old days of the Dark Ages where Kings were feared, his word was law and he could get all medieval on his enemies with moats, alligators, burning at the stake, drawn and quartered, the rack, hot pokers in the eyes and all the fun things they used to do.
