    The premise is simple. A place to post all the stupid bullshit and lies that trump says...

    I'll get us started. Too bad by the way that we didn't have the political forum until near the end of his time in office. This thread would be like 8000 pages long

    Today, about a 4 Star Marine Corps General and Distinguished Service Medal awardee

    “There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”

    ― Isaac Asimov

    Bringing back coal jobs. It's been clear for years that coal is a declining industry and that nuclear, natural gas, and renewables are the future.

    There's no need for the apostrophe after the X in Trump's tweet.

    Am I doing this right?

    nevermind that trump, a draft dodger, is taking shots at a 4 star General..but he's the president saying its illegal for former subordinates to talk bad about him.

    that's something we are typically used to seeing from shitty 3rd world countries.

    Mexico's paying for a wall..... somewhere... and the US is paying to soothe Trump's ego

    "WASHINGTON (AP) - The Pentagon on Thursday slashed billions of dollars in funding for 17 Navy and Air Force aircraft and other military programs to free up money for the construction of President Donald Trump's long-sought U.S.-Mexico border wall, angering not just Democrats but also GOP defense hawks.

    Defense Secretary Mark Esper approved the $3.8 billion border wall request from the Department of Homeland Security, and the Pentagon acknowledged that more cuts could be coming to provide additional funding for Trump's signature campaign promise."

    "Trump's Story about a Veteran's Comeback Was Not Quite True"
    https://apnews.com/2722fe07cc220914...AP&utm_source=Twitter&utm_campaign=SocialFlow

    [understating article title there, here we call it 'bullshit trump says']

    --

    "Tony Rankins, a formerly homeless, drug-addicted Army veteran, got a standing ovation at the State of the Union after President Donald Trump described how he turned his life around thanks to a construction job at a company using the administration’s “Opportunity Zone” tax breaks targeting poor neighborhoods.

    But that’s not completely true.

    Rankins, who indeed moved out of his car and into an apartment since landing a job refurbishing a Nashville hotel two years ago, doesn’t work at a site taking advantage of the breaks and never has done so. In fact, he started that job four months before the Treasury Department published its final list of neighborhoods eligible for the breaks. And the hotel where he worked couldn’t benefit even now because it’s an area that didn’t make the cut

    It certainly helped that his opponent in 2016 was unlikable and had her share of baggage.

    Just remember that this joke of a creature thinks you need ID to buy groceries. Dude has never even been food shopping and he somehow resonates with the “forgotten men and women” of this country

    Turns out there was no imminent threat from Iran's top general. Almost got us into another endless war with Iran all to distract from his impeachment.
