Oh, you mean in the Sean Spicer on a Saturday afternoon after being chewed out by the snowflake-in-chief sense of the word?

Duly noted, good sir.

Deportation squads?

Are you serious?

I thought only low-iq, low-info morrons actually believed that made-up tripe?

Trump has always stated his intention to ENFORCE existing laws and deport CRIMINAL ILLEGAL immigrants.

I can't believe you act like this something new.

Even thinkprogress has a quote from Trump about it:


We are going to triple the number of ICE deportation officers,” Trump said. “Within ICE, I am going to create a new special deportation task force focused on identifying and quickly removing the most dangerous criminal illegal immigrants in America who have evaded justice.”


followed by

Though “criminal illegal immigrants” would be the initial focus of Trump’s deportation force, he made clear that he wants all undocumented people out. “Anyone who has entered the United States illegally is subject to deportation,” he said. “That is what it means to have laws and to have a country. Otherwise we don’t have a country.”


And that's not even getting in to Congress saying they're not going to do the "deportation force" thing.

Why nerves ? He's been a trump surrogate for a year. It's not like he's hasn't been grilled by the press before. He's been on every news show on cable numerous times. He should have this down pat.

Hm!

See, I was utterly unaware of his existence! I know Kellyanne and Jake Tapper and Anderson Cooper and the 'late night hosts'....but I did NOT know anything about this guy.

THANK YOU for pointing out my ignorance on that. I need to learn more about his background.




See? THIS IS WHAT I HOPED FOR! YAY. thank you.

Why do you seriously doubt it?
Why were the regulations placed in the first place.

On another note do you want skyrocketing interest rates if they deregulate the banks?

Please point out where "deportation squad" is used.

I missed it,

Your link is about ICE - the same deportation force that existed under the Obama administration that was formerly known as INS.

And all illegals here illegally, breaking the law, are criminals.

Do you not understand that this thread is for ATS ORIGINAL thoughts and responses? It is not meant to just be a bulletin board for your favorite newsflash.

It feels like you're being unduly defensive, and hostile. Did you want to make a thread about Sean Spicer and the right-wing media's coverage of him?

DO IT.

This thread is about ATS's coverage of him. Get it?

I want to talk about what ATS members watched and heard. I want us to compare our 'input' sources and decide which ones are telling us an accurate thing. To see how we can tell when ALTERNATIVE FACTS is presenting a problem.

THIS WAY we can, as witnesses to the actual EVENT itself, say "these are the facts of what Spicer said" and these are the most accurate reporters.
Go ahead and choose your station and reporter --- just make sure what they write or say MATCHES WHAT SPICER IS TRYING TO SAY.

Everyone choose a topic, and watch the actual press briefings regarding your topic. And if you must, then 'read' what your favorite outlet says about that same conference that YOU JUST WATCHED and compare and contrast.


If this is TOO HARD for you, that's cool. Keep reading ATS. We aim to teach you how to tell the difference between fake news and actual news.



That's social work.
That's my thing.




WE LOOK AT THE MACRO SYSTEM --- the whole damn thing, the deep ecology, and then we focus on one topic at one specific level. This thread is the level I'm choosing. I intend to take it seriously. Let's see which sources are closest to the truth.

He is, that's why I called him out. His first post reeks of hostility. But he's a Trump supporter, most of them are cowards anyway. The ones who aren't are the one who are brave enough look at their candidate impartially.

My youngest son was too. He converted after Bernie got out of it.
I was just glad he was taking an interest in government. My other two couldn't care less and my husband and I are so passionate about it. We have friends who ran for local positions and we funded them in our home a few times and the youngest was involved serving drinks and cleaning up so he had the exposure the older two didn't.
He and his friends were Bernie guys. He was heart broken at first but the more I told him about Hillary and the more he saw of trump over the summer sealed his hand.

Banks are already "environmentally" protected.

Cheap goods flowing in is one.

Another is only big companies can compete for heavily regulated things.

All this will be exposed very soon now that the cat is out of the bag.

Watch for very revealing articles soon.

I was very glad that both my kids voted. One of them is just turned 28 (a materials science engineer with a masters in journalism that concentrated on creating reader-friendly literature about science...so everyone could understand what was being said) and the other is about to turn 26 and is a crew manager for a local catering business that doesn't give him bennies, but pays well and allows him to take leaves of absence when needed.

That is my take on it. Wall street and corporations win with regulations (I haven't seen what regs are being axed). Small business and local competition is utterly squashed due to the influx of goods.

I wound up marching in Norfolk because my husband pulled his back on Friday chopping firewood that we didn't need but men with axes or chain saws are hard to argue with lol. He didn't think he could sit in the car for two and a half hours to get to DC.
It was beautiful. Men and women and kids and for some reason lots of dogs . Lol.

neither of those things were addressed today.

We are talking about today's press briefing, if you please.

Make a thread about your pet topics and how you view the goings on as you usually do.
This thread is about what SEAN SPICER SAYS and HOW IT GETS REPORTED.

It is also focused on FACT-CHECKING.


Try it.

My daughter and her fiance marched.
I would have, but I have a busted knee. So this is my 'march' gesture. Here we are!!!!

Our local organizers have outlined an itinerary for continued involvement.

(202) 224-3121 U.S. Congress

A good start is letting your reps know what you want. We keep them in their jobs so they do listen.
And they don't have billion dollar bank accounts to fall back on if they lose the position.

but thought instead that Spicer was pretty durn diplomatic in not calling the lying media "liars"

If he had done that, it would not have gone over well.

As I said, he was respectful but also asked for the dignity of allowing for corrections, just like the media outlets are allowed to do.

(In my mind, this means 'let us defend his tweets before you grab and attack them' or something of that sort.)

He did very well, he was open and smiling and didn't seem smarmy at all.

He did seem very competent, practiced, and 'the show went on' even when he was rattled. He did say early on that he would stay as long as they wanted to. But then he said, "okay, that's all."

So. Yeah. Good start. Shaky on the end, from both sides.

Still. Very professionally done, considering. I thought.
He so far has my respect, and my sympathy for having been put in this position. I will support him as long as he keeps up the graciousness and owns the 'necessary corrections', just like he wants the press to do.

We don't want anyone "demoralized" now, do we?



Honestly Buzzy, I did not get any of this from your op.
