    Really. John Edwards took money donated by a contributor to his campaign to pay the woman. Trump used his own money.

    I don't know what you are referring to with CNN coverage of the Clinton's, so I'll not speak to that.

    For quite some time now, at least the last year to 18 months, I've observed, and objected to, the gaslighting that the Democrats and their 'news' (political propaganda) media have been doing WRT to this Russian collusion narrative they've been pushing (and others), especially now as it's completely collapsed. So now, they pivot onto something else, ignoring their gaslighting, only to gaslight some more on something else. Such is their irrational hate and TDS affliction.

    There's a difference in legitimately criticizing something on grounds, and the irrational TDS, where everything Trump does is always bad, proven by the what is it? 97% negative news coverage? (couldn't hit that mark even if you tried on purpose). So this appears to be the unthinking and indiscriminate position that many have adopted, most often based on terribly distorted fragments of quotes taken terribly out of context.

    What everyone keeps missing, is that inherently Americans love an underdog.
    So you don't think CNN covered for the Clintons? Again that makes you an anomaly amongst Trump supporters.

    Trump bad is not "TDS". It's called "opposition to the man and his bad ideas, and his unPresidential way of acting and behaving". You guys overuse that dumb TDS thing. It's childish and churlish.

    The Democrats have every reason to oppose Trump. I've been a Republican much longer than Trump has, and i oppose I'm. That isn't a disease. That's using my head.

    The story is whether a story about Trump was spiked.

    I wouldnt consider declining to put out a story claiming Stormy had an affair with Trump when Stormy was on TV telling everyone she did not, to be a "spike"

    Then it should be a short lived story.

    Certainly, a NDA is non-binding in each individual case or instance.

    Aww hell, the nearly all the 'news' (political propaganda) media covers for Democrats, or spins to pro-Demcorat, or refuses to run stories that put Democrats in a bad light, or most dishonest of all, when they do report a Democrat in a bad light, they just simply forget to tell you that it was Democrat, but the same situation for a Republican, it out front in the crawler, in the text, and in the voice over.

    Bad ideas? Well, here's one. The tax cuts.
    Results:
    Wages and salaries jump by 3.1%, highest level in a decade
    • Wages and salaries rose 3.1 percent in the third quarter, the biggest increase in a decade, according to the Labor Department.
    • Overall compensation costs were up 2.8 percent, ahead of Wall Street expectations.
    • Wages have been the missing piece in the economic recovery, though the Fed has been raising rates to guard against future inflationary pressures.


    Wages and salaries rose 0.9 percent, well ahead of expectations for 0.5 percent. Benefit costs were up 0.4 percent.

    On a yearly basis, wages and salaries jumped 3.1 percent, the biggest increase in 10 years.
    Wage increases have been the missing link in the economy since the recovery began in mid-2008. Average hourly earnings have been rising steadily but have stayed below the 3 percent level as slack has remained in the labor market.
    However the unemployment rate is now at 3.7 percent, the lowest since 1969, and wage pressures have begun to build. The Federal Reserve has been raising interest rates in an effort to stave off future inflationary pressures, though the central bank's preferred gauge of inflation rose just 2.5 percent in the third quarter, including a 1.9 percent increase for health benefits.

    "The employment cost index data adds to the broader evidence that wage growth has continued to trend gradually higher over recent quarters," Michael Pearce, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics, said in a note. "And with labor market conditions still tightening, we expect wage growth will accelerate further from here."

    What is this wall of nonsense you posted? And how did you end up with "Obama", considering I didn't vote for him - twice?

    If you needed a lifelong liberal reality TV game show host pervert to turn your wallet around, then you have bigger problems than I ever could. "Gaslighters"? I'm not an idiot ring winger anymore. I think for myself, and don't listen to what others tell me.

    The tax cuts benefitted the wealthy and profitable corporations. If you don't know that, I have no idea what to tell you. Nor do I want to try. The brainwashing of the Trump Republicans has rivaled that of Jim Jones supporters.
