If Trump followed anything but Reddit or Twitter he'd know that already.
    No, you obviously didn't watch it because your characterization of what was said is directly opposite of what was presented. If you watched it how did you get it so wrong?

    Oh, so we're idiots, clowns and liars, too? Nice.

    I watched the entire presser as I was getting my nails done at 11:00 ET this morning. The salon had ABC on. They pre-empted The View. They had that young guy, Jonathan something or other, with the glasses, standing in front of the podium before Trump came out. Trump stood on the left side of the stage, between his daughter and one of his sons. She was wearing a white dress and they periodically whispered to each other. Shall I go on?

    Thank you for stating that you are calling fellow posters idiots and clowns.

    I would have expected more from you than this low level feed we see from trump's twittergate.

    How long do you think it will take trump and his mouthpieces to tell us what he really meant ?

    You are making comments on the contents of a press conference you obviously didn't watch as if you watched it and have an informed opinion. You don't. Anyone who took the time to watch the press conference can sniff that out in a second. "No questions and answers.. no content"?! Give me a break, Tres.

    I watched the entire presser as I was getting my nails done at 11:00 ET this morning. The salon had ABC on. They pre-empted The View.

Trump stood on the left side of the stage, between his daughter and one of his sons. She was wearing a white dress and they periodically whispered to each other. Shall I go on?

    HAHAHAH!!! "I watched the whole press conference! Let me prove it to you by giving details of the press conference I could have derived from a photograph!" Are you sure your head wasn't stuck in a hair dryer the whole time?

    Maybe you should expect your other fellow posters to not lie so plainly and demonstrably with easily falsifiable claims and commentary.

I did the same for both Bushes, and Clinton, and Reagan too. That's what people who aren't partisan do. It's called being honest.

    I have no need to block you. Your posts don't upset me, which is why for the most part I like them and agree with them. But you've been on a tear of outrage in this thread about me, and it's a bad reflection on you.
    Apparently I can't respond to others about you when asked without sending you into a tizzy. There are plenty of people on this board who don't support Trump and don't take it personally when I disagree with them. In YOUR defense, frankly, I'm having a ****ty day today. So maybe your post just hit me wrong.

    Block. Don't block. I don't care. Now you may have the last word if you choose or one or both of us will be infracted. JMVHO.


    Thank you, Quazi!

    Likewise, the specifics of that claim have since been debunked. The claim came from the report released by Buzzfeed that said that Trump's lawyer met the Russians in Prague, that has since been proven false. His lawyer has proof that he was in LA visiting USC with his son, and USC has corroborated AND it has been shown that a man with the same name, from a different country, visited Prague but the idiot who collected the Oppo info never bothered to verify if the Cohen who visited Prague was the same Cohen... and it wasn't.

    Given that reality, and the 4chan claim, it's safe to say the entire report is trash... and in fact the report was only mentioned to Trump as a source of DISinformation for him to look out for.

    CNN lied and ran a story they didn't try to corroborate, Buzzfeed lied AND ran information they tried but were unable to corroborate. It is that simple. Everything beyond that is wishful thinking by the opposition.
    No. much of what you just wrote is accurate.

    After Trump dismissed CNN, the next question was on the Russian sanctions. Then there was a Trumpian diatribe on Lindsey Graham. And only then did BBC broach the question, where they were summarily belittled by Trump and the question was sidestepped without direct response. The question was never answered, as I earlier stated.

    If you'd like to familiarize yourself more accurately with these events, I'm happy to include here the transcript of the press conference:

    Donald Trumpís News Conference: Full Transcript and Video

    Also you and Trump are attempting to conflate CNN's reporting of the two page intel briefing addendum, with the buzzfeed thirty-five page document. These are two different things, Trump knows it. I know it. And I believe you know it, or should know it.

    CNN was careful and dillegent to only report the U.S. intel memo (which Trump did not refute at the presser when asked), and to also declare the Buzzfeed document as unsubstantiated. CNN did not publish the Buzzfeed document.

    Again, here is the CNN article for you to reacquaint yourself:

    Intel chiefs presented Trump with claims of Russian efforts to compromise him - CNNPolitics.com

    I believe my sources above to be accurate, but am willing to look at your yours if you'd would like.

    It's clear that you were woefully uninformed on the issue of the emoluments clause when you watched that press conference (presuming you watched it at all, which I'm now starting to doubt), and that you believed, wrongly, that the primary criticism against him was that the blind trust was legally required (straw man), and that the criticism is that fair market deals were violations (also a straw man).

    It's quite rich to see a trumposter call people liars over their interpretations of a news conference.

    Especially when we saw trump accuse a fellow GOP's father of being involved in the JFK assassination.

    Think trump may have had a putin source for that one?

    I was in college 43 years ago this day when trump's hero Nixon was about to go down and this one has the same feel .
