In the eyes of the media...

Trump is Satan and Hillary and Obama are Angels of the Almighty!

Trump jaywalked... Impeach!

Hillary's foundation scammed hundreds of millions... Right-wing conspiracy!

Trump tweeted great news... Impeach!

Obama spied on his opposition... Right-wing conspiracy!

Wow.

This article should have been written in a teasing tone, not a serious one - writing stuff like in a serious tone that only serves to reinforces the belief that the media is biased against the current administration.

Yeah, the rules, however archaic, are meant to be followed, but come on, if we need to be told of "a little-known federal rule from 1985" existence to see wrongdoing, if it is not wrong by itself but only because of the existence of the rule, then the existence of said rule should be the news:

"Obscure law made Sean Spencer's job reports tweet illegal"

That is what the article should say.

Sure, it could then go on to emphasize that Spencer did indeed do something wrong, that he should have known etc - and they would be right - but it would still give the impression of an unbiased article.

That is how you move independents.

I considered your thoughtful post reply:



...Obscure law made Sean Spencer's job reports tweet illegal"

That is what the article should say.

Sure, it could then go on to emphasize that Spencer did indeed do something wrong, that he should have known etc - and they would be right - but it would still give the impression of an unbiased article...




then I was considering a way to snake out of being caught....a very high priority of the past regime...



Spencer could say he was informed of the info from the report on a London NEWS stream... which is some 5 hours already past--- thus circumventing the 1 hour requirement for comments on those 'reports'... to Spencer the 'news' would have been reported at 2PM London Time not anywhere near the 8:57 AM (1 hour violation period)

There is a little known law from 1985 that says "employees of the Executive Branch shall not comment publicly on the data until at least one hour after the official release time". Now wouldn't you know that the crazy left has nothing better to do with their time than look up obscure laws and use them to put down the President.


We are a nation of laws.

One would think #1 would follow them.

The law is the law and it seems the current WH can't follow any of them. Too bad for them. Maybe they should pick up a book once in a while instead of watching Alex Jones.

Taking credit for jobs this early is also BS. He's done nothing to stimulate the job market so far and the numbers wouldn't reflect it this early even if he had.

Just like Trump to take credit for something someone else did.


You are right let's prosecute them for breaking this law. And then let's deport every illegal. The law is the law.
Let's see if you are consistent or blowing smoke.

Awesome point. The law only matters when it fits their agenda.

To be fair, neither is Spencer.

But yeah, of course he should follow the rule(s). The implied argument that one should follow the rules to set an example is in my mind a bit silly though. One should follow the rules agreed upon simple because they are rules agreed upon.

I am not making excuses for Trump. I don't think he will make 100 days.

And you you are under scrutiny...maybe not from global media, but NSA and CIA know more about you than you think.

It's just its not the first or only time he's chosen to go rogue and ignore rules & protocol.

It's not "one little accident".

Now, I know some will cheer this as being anti-establishment. Breaking up DC, etc.

But, that's not how I see it.

I think you're like me - - trying to find the balance.

Who gets hired for a job if they're not qualified? Trump, I guess.

good lord it is going to be a long 4 years at this rate...

instead of making a mountain out of a mole hill , if they really want to get him... build up evidence and hit him all at once.. it is a simple concept.

You want to throw a sitting president out... all these little temper tantrums by the left will do nothing but make them look bad.


Well it was a long 8 years for the left, whenever the right got their panties in a bunch over Obama.


it was 2 years for the left, the rest of the time, republican majorities in the congress actively worked to undermine Obama at every step....
and apparently you forgot about all the whining from republicans from 2010 to 2016

I was right, even when this administration does something good, someone finds a negative in it.

Sad.


What 'good' are you referring to? The jobs report? Even Trump's own Budget Director says that Trump' and his administration had nothing to do with the jobs report numbers. Not to mention right up until this particular job report Trump railed over and over and over that the numbers were fake. Then the Feb numbers come out and all of a sudden they're real? And entirely in-line with all the preceding 'fake' numbers? How you rationalize this thinking is astounding.
