A man who identified himself as a hotel manager then asked Thompson to leave and warned that he would be arrested if he did not. Roughly two minutes later, without further warning and while Thompson was waiting for a member of Trump's staff to clarify his access to the event, he was arrested by Houston Police, handcuffed, and escorted outside

If I am reading that correct sounds like Hotel management had the issue and called the police. Someone show me the connection to Trump...

...and if so, tell Trump Vice is alright, he's one of us, he's a good fella.

You want threads from 3 years prior to when he became a member?

That's not unreasonable in the slightest.

Future Chief Justice Obama?

LOL. Sorry. I had to wipe the dr. pepper off my keyboard. Where was I?

Oh yes, Obama. I'm sorry is Obama in this election? (setting aside any "theories" you might have about a "third term") I'm not defending anything that Obama may have done. I get the whole "your candidate is as bad as my candidate" thing but the problem with that is you have to first be able to acknowledge that your candidate is as bad. (or in this case as guilty) It also helps if you compare like to like.

Just a few friendly pointers. Thanks for the laugh!

from our number 1 anti-Trump member.


If you keep pouring on the flattery like that, I may just warm up to. You could be the Putin to my Trump! Besties?


Joking aside, I still don't understand what Trump has to do with any of this.


Well for one, they are dicking with Vice News's press credentials. How many other journalists had to inquire about them at the venue? What is this, "Will call?"

Secondly, I have what I thought is a plausible scenario.

Thirdly, I did put put the title in a form of a question and I did not make any specific allegations in the OP. I saw something that looks sketchy, I'm curious about what's happened and I think this could in fact be a big deal. Particularly given Trump's contempt and abject hostility against the press when they're not dancing to his tune — something that isn't just common knowledge but documented public record.

When was the last time a Breitbart reporter was denied press credentials or arrested outside of ANY candidate's venue? Fox News? Doesn't seem the least bit odd to you?


Want to start with [future] Chief Justice Obama or with the Infallible Queen?
Let's begin with mr transparency:
www.mediaite.com...

What do I win?

-Christosterone


What does Obama have to do with anything? And for the record, many people DID in fact care. Continue to build up your own arguments only to knock them down and tell "I win," however, it's entertaining. Hillary also has nothing to do with the topic.

The constant deflection of the topic from Trump to Hillary/Obama is.... you tell me, because I'm not sure why Trump supporters are so keen of doing so.

I'm not a Clinton supporter, I cannot stand that woman. I also can't stand Trump, and it's blatantly ignorant to assume that because one doesn't support one candidate they somehow are supporting the other.

That's forcing ideals upon other people and does not stand in a "free," society. But then again, we aren't a free society, and haven't been for quite some time. If this weren't the case, why the "Make America Great Again," slogan?

There's serious work to be done in this nation, and I for one, do not see Trump or Hillary being a candidate for that. There is plenty of research to be done regarding their close ties that should not be outright dismissed, and even more so completely eliminated by baseless insults and thinly veiled allusions to "shills," and the like.

I don't understand why it's so difficult for people to have a back and forth DISCUSSION regarding this election - it's become so polarized I've seriously considered leaving ATS for good and I was lurking here long before I registered due to the ridiculousness that has become the "popular comments," around here of late.

This country and us citizens are so far divided, and these two clowns are playing on that divide for their OWN advantage - and they've convinced millions to do their bidding and spread their propoganda.

I wouldn't call it desperate.
It's not like he's posting multiple anti-Trump threads daily!

Oh, wait. Never mind...


xuenchen anyone?


You guys only see what you want, don't you?


So may henhouses... so little time. Bacon in place, trep.
I'll bring the eggs to throw at him for 11/9 breakfast.
Although I'm trying to back off on the cholesterol...

Strictly to the thread.. I think both major players are
looking kind of anxious to scrape whatever undecided
voters are lining the barrel.
What nobody is addressing, including the MSM is that
42% of us that don't respond to polls-- and are mainly
silent until it looks like voting is important that time.
This may be more that time for all of us than any other.

You mean this VICE?


VICE's Fall From Counterculture Hipster Rag To Neoliberal Government Mouthpiece


Mintpress News‎ - 1 day ago


There was $200 million from Disney and another $70 million from 21st Century Fox that made Rupert Murdoch a major owner. One talk show sponsored by Bank of America, and another hosted by career Islamophobe Bill Maher. World-famous puppet master George Soros, who funds coups in favor of NATO, got his own segment. Throughout all of this, VICE Media expanded by quietly embracing the very corporate and government entities that hold the least credibility with its own, young audience.



VICE, it turns out, is an ideal vehicle for delivering Cold War, interventionist messages to a generation that knows better than to trust the mainstream media or the government. The problem is, that generation doesn’t seem to realize that VICE is the mainstream media and it’s pushing government narratives.


In other words, mouthpiece for The never Trump establishment.

Lol. As if threads from nearly ten years ago are relevant.

I've participated in many Obummer shaming threads. Same thing with Hillary.

I despise and ultimately detest all "elite," alike - and that includes the "Washington Outsider," Donald Trump.

The deflections are amazing. This has turned into an Obummer thread in "context," to attempting to defend Trump. Lol.

Those Republican Operatives are at it again!

Of course it is.

He's the Anti-Christ. And he's Osama Bin Laden. And he's the founder of IS. And he's a Reptilian. I remember all of those threads... good times.

Hillary is now all of the above, too.

Fear mongering 101 folks - don't fall into the trap. Don't feed the trolls. Notice how they never respond to the elaborate and "longer," posts. They cherry pick small sentences and deflect to something completely off topic.

Oh look a Trumpeteer pretending to have standards! That's adorable. Meanwhile I don't even need the opinion of somebody neither of us has ever heard of to tell you that Trump hired Breitbart's CEO to be his campaign CEO and brought on the disgraced former head of Fox News, Roger "Bill Cosby" Ailes — one of the most if not the most influential men in America media for decades — as a paid campaign advisor.

Nothing going on there though.

What does that have to do with a Never Trump propaganda outlet trying to get attention for being arrested at a Trump event?

I feel like addressing the freedom of the press thing. Even assuming this was an attempt to restrict the rights of the press, these days I'm just starting lose any zeal for giving a #.

I mean it's not like the press does it's job anymore anyway. They're supposed to keep us informed of the truth, present us with as much information on the relevant events in the world and an unbiased view on our politicians so we may be an educated and informed public. The media is supposed to be a bastion of integrity and truth attempting to cut through the red tape of lies and bureaucracy to give us the tools we need to make informed rational decisions.

Now the media is about ratings and spreading the propaganda of their government and elite backers. They don't work for us, in fact they work directly for the very people they're supposed to be informing us about.

Trumps issue with the media is that it's not his pocket they're in.

Our issue with the media is they've sold out and are no longer serving us or our best interests.

The media's issue is we're fed up with them and not buying their # anymore, and Trump is taking advantage of the swing of the people against the media for his own purposes.

I honestly have little sympathy for the flack the media has been getting, they dug their own graves. That said, giving Trump control of the media would be no better. The media needs to belong to the citizens of the world and have NO corporate or government ties. I'm not sure how to make that happen though.

Vice News is a "Never Trump propaganda outlet trying to get attention" because of some allegations by some people you'd likeley never even heard of. Correct?

Did you read the article or did you just like the title? She goes on about how Bill Maher has made his entire career out of Islamaphobia. If she said Donald Trump was making a campaign out of Islamaphobia, you'd vomit out some diatribe about what a nasty SJW she was and a "Never Trump propaganda mouthpiece" or some such.

The links she makes are ones that could be said of Trump and the people he surrounds himself with. In fact, no where in the article is there any evidence of Vice being part of a "Never Trump agenda" with one exception that you'd know if you were half as well-informed as you think you are — Bill Maher.

However, let's not forget that it was also Vice News's FOIA request that got 30,000 Hillary e-mails released or did you forget that? That would be the EXACT same Vice journalist who is trying to get the IRS to release details of the Trump audit.

What's ironic is you've taken a piece lamenting how far to the right (neoliberal) Vice News has shifted as evidence that it's a "Never Trump mouthpiece." I'm guessing you didn't even read it.

I disagree.

I think the press has been biased since Gutenberg. But they, and us have the right to be as biased as we want.

You must be pushing some buttons. You have stalkers! Pity they don't have any original thoughts but just parrot back Rush and Hannity.

Somehow I don't see Trump fostering freedom of any kind, if he is so intent on controlling reporters.

They really do don't they.
It is really obvious when we don't have a bone in the race they say one thing about the opposition doing hit pieces while doing the exact same thing.
I think it is called hypocritical.

Chaos is one word for it.

Control is another.

You either agree with the chaos/control, or are against it.
