    No way. They will make up another bull**** propaganda piece and their followers wont even remember this (especially the part about it being false.) Or maybe not. Face it. Those people who support these propagandists don't care if it's truth or lies. As long as it makes their ears feel good hearing, keep shoveling in.

    BTW, $5,000,000 is 200,600,000 INR (rupes). The source of the comment was an unnamed Indian official. For him to quote the cost in dollars is unlikely. He may have said 200,000,000 per day and the listener assumed it was dollars and not rupes. If this is the cost, it is lower than most Presidential trips in the last 10 years.

    This really is pathetic. Has no one heard of fact checking?
    To hyperpartisans, whatever source reinforces their beliefs is true. Facts are irrelevant.

    And anyone who has a functioning brain should be able to figure out that the $200 million is actually in Rupees. Which in conversion is about the same cost per day as other presidents' foreign trips.

    I have to wonder where the thread starter heard this story from? I'm assuming they aren't a daily reader at the New Delhi Television website.
    That's why these "entertainers" are dangerous. When their lies and exaggerations are uncovered, the damage is already done. Some people--ever today!--believe that WMDs were found in Iraq by American soldiers, even though that has been dispelled years ago. So some people believe what they want to believe, and these "entertainers" are just too happy to spoon feed them.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    So j-mac, are you going to comment on your thread? Do you see now that you've been had by the rightwing spin machine? Or are you closing your eyes, covering your ear while yelling, "LA-LA-LA-LA?"
