These sensitive papers, described to VICE News by three current and former White House officials, don’t contain top-secret intelligence or updates on legislative initiatives. Instead, the folders are filled with screenshots of positive cable news chyrons (those lower-third headlines and crawls), admiring tweets, transcripts of fawning TV interviews, praise-filled news stories, and sometimes just pictures of Trump on TV looking powerful.


What is wrong with this guy? Is he so thin skinned he needs a propaganda folder twice a day, every day? He's got, at least, three people being paid to find things positive about him and given to him.

This is the weirdest presidency of my lifetime. Not in a good way. Trump is obsessed with people talking about him and talking about him in a good light. It's not about the presidency, it's not about the country, all of this is about him to make him feel good.

Contacted by VICE News, Spicer disputed the nature of the folder. “While I won’t comment on materials we share with the president, this is not accurate on several levels,” he said in an email. Asked what about the story was inaccurate, Spicer did not respond.

Waaay down at the bottom.

The only named source involved in the whole article.

Rhetoric? Propaganda? Hit piece? You can decide, but it is not journalism nor does it bode well for factual content.

Are you still so sad that Bernie lost the election because Hillary undermined him and he allowed it.

Please fill this up with your tears. I thirst.

There is nothing wrong with trying to remain positive when you have Republican, Democrat and media globalists trying to bring you down. I don't blame him at all for trying to stay strong with so many arrogant, evil forces aligned against him.

Smoking gun right here.

Impeachment is only a mater of time.

Counting down the minutes. . . . . . . .


Unnamed sources also tell me that he has super powers like Wolverine.

Adamantium claws shoot out of his tiny hands when he gets angry.

And Trump is a booger-head.

I'd write a thread about how he is a huge booger-head and a nooney-brained wooney-face.

Are you mistaking me for someone else? Is Fox news mentioned anywhere?

Methinks your apples and oranges are mixing in the bottom of your barrel.

Maybe he is hoping someone breaks the law again and leaks it.

I know this was already quoted, but the article is dated today and they're talking to Spicer, who no longer works for this administration?

Not only fake news, but SLOPPY fake news. Nice try at character assassination, NO CIGAR.

Leftists like to use that tactic with their participation trophies.

This thread would get more flags if you replaced Trump with Hillary, in the title. Finding positive news about her would be worthy of a special briefing. But twice a day? Would have to be really OLD material pulled from scrapbooks, LOL.

Probably helps him remember who/where he is. It's a common memory exercise for dementia and Alzheimer's patients.

Go figure.
