You think just like the major media.

If Trump is a insider, there is no way he would have told the biographer to leave, that would be a hard slap at Koch.IMHO


If he wanted the money and banksters out he wouldn't have hired Goldman Sachs top guy


He hasn't been the top guy in quite some time. I thought the left wasn't supposed to judge people for their pasts.


Another assumption that I'm on the left because I'm critical of Trump

What's it like trying to paint someone w a brush only to get some on your face

Trump Boots Koch Brother from Golf Course



I'll ask one question.
Feel free not to answer.



Is that true statement in the headline?


Sure he did, at least according to Hurt:

"Trump told Hurt it was “inappropriate” for him to play at the club, and had his security detail escort Hurt, Koch, and their playing partners to the parking lot."

All of them, not one of them, was escorted out by security.


They escorted Hurt.....Koch and the rest chose to leave w him....

Seriously you guys are going to be this dishonest just to keep up this false premise that Trump kicked out Koch as some message to money in Washington? When it's so easily verifiable as false?

Unbelievable


If that is the case then it is Hurt that is lying, much like his biography. What is strange is how you all are on Koch's balls. Either way, what Trump did was in no way a sign of respect to either of the golfers.


First of all how do you know he's lying?

Second if you actually read the link , it wasn't hurt that said it

And I'm not on "Koch balls". I'm interested in truth, not some made up bs that panders to my own confirmation bias


I read the article and it was quoted verbatim from Hurts Facebook page. Maybe you didn't read it. It also included Trump's anti Koch tweets.

He still doesn't like the writer, right?

There are 3 things you and I possibly disagree on.

Trump didn't recognize that it would piss Koch off.

Trump knew it would make Koch mad, and didn't care.

It didn't bother Koch at all to have his game interrupted and his guest 86'ed.

Apparently you didn't because it was an associate that reported it to politico not Hurt

We can suppose any of that

The problem is that's NOT what your article reported or what their headline INTENTIONALLY misled

I don't know, how about you tell me.

The article in the OP is from Brietbart, not Politico. Hurts Facebook post was quoted verbatim. If the associates tale contradicts Hurt's, one of them is lying.

Them are some funny tweets. It was nice to have an election cycle where crying the koch brothers wolf did not exist. I believe they threw their lot in with hillary.
I am happy those libertarianish open borders globalist lost. open borders libertarians can go pound sand the next 4 years.

Im talking about what I posted from a different news source that isnt Trumps mouth piece, In fact just about every other news source with the story reports it completely opposite from what Breitbart did

Everyone was anti-Koch until Trump was. But that's the going rate with nearly everything.

Alright, then was Hurt's account of the interaction true or false? As I mentioned many times now, it is quoted verbatim, and anyone with two eyes can read it.

Trump isn't anti-Koch. The Koch Brothers are members at Mar-a-Lago.

He just didn't appreciate someone that called him a rapist as a guest at his club. Which is understandable.


source
The rocky relationship began to change in late November, when Trump began surrounding himself with cabinet members and advisors closely knitted to the Kochs. Vice president elect Mike Pence, White House Counsel Don McGahn and campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, for example, are all connected to the Kochs in various ways.


I also find it admirable that Koch left with his invited guest rather than play-through without him. Really the only thing that looks bad here is Breitbart for trying to create a false narrative.

It is so easy to give Obama a million little reasons he couldn't get things done for 8 years. It is so hard to give Trump a chance when he wasn't spent 1 second as president.

Well it might help some of us give him a chance if some of you would stop trying to sell him so damn hard. I mean kicking someone off the golf course has nothing to do with kicking the money out of politics.

His cabinet is filled with MultiBillionaires and you're using this golf course thing to say he's kicking money out of politics??? Not only do they have nothing to do with each other but he's literally filling his cabinet with more money power than ever.

Trump supporters keep trying to shine up everything about him which makes it even worse. It's like someone who's really desperate to sell you some crap you don't like to begin with and they just keep pushing it harder. Like a homeless guy trying to sell you some broken item for some quick cash.

Stop trying to make his every decision into something brilliant when it's not. Because in contrast to the completely horrible decisions he makes that you ignore it just makes him look worse and makes the supporters and non supporters dig their trenches deeper in divide.
