More craziness from The Donald today...

Pushing conspiracy theories with no evidence and saying “voting is an honor”



“I was honored as Man of the Year in Michigan.” This has been proven to be an outright lie.



“There are many per capitas. Per Capitas relative to what?”

Uhhhh.....wha?

Kind of like how Biden graduated at the top of his law class at Columbia...
Yeah....very similar to that. Only Trump said this yesterday, even after it has been disproven by multiple sources. If you tell a lie enough times, it will eventually come true, right?
Biden only started telling that lie 20+ years ago. In actuality, Biden has a propensity to tell the same lies OVER AND OVER. Here is an article that sheds the light on some of his lies.

https://jacobinmag.com/2020/03/joe-bide ... -reporting
Biden owned up to it. How often does Trump do that?
In his 2007 autobiography "Promises to Keep," Biden addressed his comments on the 1988 campaign trail. He said he lost his temper because he was getting sick with the flu, and "it sounded to me as if one of my own supporters doubted my intelligence."

"At a small campaign event in Claremont, N.H., I lost it. I shouldn’t have been there in the first place," Biden wrote. "I didn’t feel any better afterward; what I’d said was a quick and stupid rant that I wished I’d never said. Worse than that, without realizing it I’d exaggerated my academic record."

"Thank God, I thought as I left the event, there weren’t many people in the room to see my outburst."
I am not a Trump apologist and agree he says some dumb things. However, the left will attack Trump for lying yet give a pass to Biden (or any wide assortment of Dem characters such as Pelosi). Did you read the article above? Biden has a history of bending the truth. According to your reasoning above, if you apologize once in awhile, it is okay to lie regularly.
I didn't say it was OK. I asked how often does Trump do that. I was comparing Biden to Trump. I don't think Democrats or Republicans give their politicians a pass. I've seen lots of republicans hammer on Trump. This even occurs on Fox News. I also see Dems running their own party members out of congress and almost everyone on the left hammered on Anthony Weiner and Bagdoyivich (sp?), among others. Al Franken was forced to resign. Nixon was forced to resign by Republican congressmen.

Anyway, does Trump ever own his mistakes? I'm sure he has at some point. Not on the Central Park Five or Obama's birth certificate, but there has to have been something that Trumped has owned. Anyone know?

Herd immunity in Sweden results, but probably too early to tell IMO.

I doubt it. I mean he couldn't even admit he spelled "coffee" wrong when he tweeeted something about "covfefe"! I don't remember the details on that to be honest, but thats one thing that drives me insane about the guy.

Trump mentions Henry Ford to Ford workers, then says, "Good bloodlines, good bloodlines. If you believe in that stuff."

Not sure you care, but your opinions would carry a lot more weight if you occasionally posted something dumb that a Democrat said, instead of appearing to be one of those partisan people who believe it only happens in the "other" political party.

I just figured you, rickrund, allcat, codecat, catabolic, 2506, etc. had that covered. I just figured I’d stay in my lane.

It's funny how Howard Dean getting too excited and screaming BYAAAA pretty much ruined the nomination for him. Romney's Binders Full of Women line certainly didn't help him win.

Yet here in 2020 I don't think either one of those would make even a blip in any media.

Here is a little more context. Amazing that we don’t have any better candidates to consider.

Haha thanks, I like it!

Honestly, I cannot wait for the debates between these two brilliantly eloquent candidates... It's gonna be must-see TV!!

He will stay in the front of the news feeds with this. He is stuck in your head. No press is bad press. Keep us informed.


Now sorry for caring about Cat/griz too much. I've been properly chastised by the coach of the other team. :-^
