Well you might have a point. Trump is his own worst enemy. Every time the guy does something stupid he gives the media ammunition to rag on him. He lies so much, has had so many scandals and has hired so many criminals that the media is having a field day.

For Obama they had to make up stuff.

/shrug.
Even been accused of Cognitive Dissonance?

Yeah, you're currently experience that.

The Media and Democrats are their worst enemies, Trump simply replays their actions and BOOM, 100k likes.

In other words, he actions lead the Media to play themselves.

Two scoops? Remember that?

The Media went extinct in the late 90s, professional, unbiased news reporting without the Emotional filler has all but been reduced to basic local yokel news reporting.

MSM? You just proved you willingly consumed, so why should we put stock in your opinions when they are already tainted from corrupt liberal media and false interpretations by you?

Since when has he not had a hard week


Well, this is the first time he's had to endure being roasted by the entire Democrat Party at their convention, not to mention the numerous Republicans publicly lambasting him.


Was there another Dem convention we missed?


Then he's got the 900 page, or so, report from the Senate Intel Committee that pretty much confirms the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the election.


That's a lie. "The Senate Intelligence Committee has released the fifth and final report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. It concludes that the 2016 Trump campaign’s contacts with Russia posed a grave national counterintelligence threat but offers no determination on whether the campaign deliberately worked with Russia to sway the election."

And... "The committee's main findings run parallel to the conclusions of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, which found overwhelming evidence of Russia's efforts to interfere in the election through disinformation and cyber campaigns but found a lack of sufficient evidence that the Trump campaign conspired with the Kremlin to impact the outcome of the 2016 election."

Please stop spreading false information about Trump.


And now his mentor and side arm Steve Bannon, who knows where all the bodies are buried, is in a compromised legal position.


So? Investigate Bannon and if he did anything illegal, throw him in jail.


Coming up this weekend the House of Representatives will start a probe into his Postmaster General and the sabotage at USPS.

Busy week!


What sabatoge? You mean the things that didn't happen?

You really should try to find topics that have real legal standing unlike these pieces of drivel.

"I’m going to surround myself only with the best and most serious people," Trump told our Robert Costa in a phone interview at the time. "We want top of the line professionals."

Well would you look at that.

Bannon and a few others defrauded donors using their build a wall campaign. Seems like they were asking for donations to help build a wall along the Mexican border. However instead that money went into their pocket. Also indicted were Timothy Shea, acting DEA head, Brian Kolfage, a Iraq war veteran, and Andrew Badolato

Only the best baby!


As already pointed out you should put the word "allegedly" into your OP. It clearly shows your bias missing it.

We have seen only one side of the story so far. Give the other party plenty of time to express their version of things as well, you might get surprised at how things might turn out. It's not the first time that state institutions or their segments get caught lying in order to discredit/punish their adversaries and people go along with the "official" version.

As it stands this whole thing stinks and in my opinion this seems to be an attack on the people closest to Trump and indirectly on Trump himself. No surprise here, deep state hard at work.

So, why should he be different, grey580?

I guess if you can't build it, you might as well sell it anyway if you can, right?

Capitalism at its finest, I say!

Hardcore anti Trumpers conform to confirmation bias, even if its lie, it makes them feel good.

Minds that don't have the strenght to resist such false urges are doomed to consume fake news almost all the time and never realize it.

So when you engage it, you're not met with logical and data derived data for thought provoking discussion, rather, "Reeeeeeee lie reeeeeee tRump reeee".

Trump doesn't need Bannon any more.

If I understand this correctly, he has the whole legion of Q now.
at least he's actively asking for their support.


When told by a reporter about the central premise of the QAnon theory — a belief that Mr. Trump is saving the world from a satanic cult made up of pedophiles and cannibals connected to Democratic Party figures, so-called deep-state actors and Hollywood celebrities — Mr. Trump did not question the validity of the movement or the truth of those claims.
Trump Says QAnon Followers Are People Who ‘Love Our Country’

"No puppet! No puppet!"

What if Trump is Q's puppet?

Are you Rip Van Winkle or something? Lol, Trump was bashed at the DNC convention in 2016, too. Trust me, he wasn't roasted by any means. How many more dem voters will the DNC pull in by blaming Trump for everything, even the deaths of people who died from a virus (doesn't get much more retarded than that), and all the cities that were shut down by state government. People don't care to hear lie after lie, they like to hear how they're going to be helped. What has your party said they would do to help us? Something that would actually help Americans.

Is completely the opposite of what Sookie said.

I think it's only fair to give her the opportunity to present her facts on this before we categorize her entire theory as lies and garbage.

Even if Trump was guilty of something, do you really think anything would happen? Most of the top dem leaders are caught up in illegal activity and still roam free.

So I added allegedly in there. True they are innocent until proven guilty.

We will find out how much SDNY has on them in due course.

IF he's guilty...put him in jail.


that is a reasonable comment - here on ats it seems out of place.


Dude it's how everyone on this side feels. The problem is that anyone who supports Trump will be accused of illegal things but there's never any proof of the claims. If or when there IS proof, nobody defends that person.

The President has had to purge a lot of so-called "friends" from his circle over the years. (i.e. Jeffrey Epstein) Most honest millionaires have to.

Well, Trump fired Bannon quite a while ago and Bannon was pretty pissed at Trump after that. Bannon is out for himself, if he committed this crime than he should be put on trial and put in prison.

Bannon seems to be a bad apple, I don't think that Trump should have had him as an advisor.

People have a short memory.

Every single right wing media outlet and website bashed Obama.

Obama had his birth questioned. His religion questioned. Even Trump has been bashing Obama for years. Mitch McConnell said that he would oppose Obama at every step. People were burning hanging effigies of Obama.



One news station questioned obama's motives. One. And democrats despise Fox for it. He was rightfully questioned about his birth but the retaliation was to claim it was racist. Do you realize how utterly stupid it sounds to call someone a racist for questioning the birth of a president? Mitch is only one person. Try having an entire side opposing you, same thing happened to Bush II in 2007 and 2008. I was able to track down one single video of someone hanging an effigy and burning it. Check out all the effigies of Trump that have been burned, chopped up, shot at, beheaded, etc.

Come on man.

But he's an old man just like Stone! Too old for prison!

Whatever "crime" he allegedly committed didn't hurt no one, just like lying to the FBI and witness tampering didn't hurt nuffin!
