Citing a news story based on an anonymous source; you astound me, Okrahoma.

Scarborough called senior adviser Jared Kushner, with whom Scarborough has a friendly relationship, to ask about a National Enquirer article slated to run in early June regarding the relationship between Scarborough and Brzezinski, who have since announced their engagement.

Scarborough asked Kushner if there was anything that could be done about the article, the source said, given Trump’s friendship with David Pecker, the chief executive of The Enquirer’s parent company, American Media. Kushner allegedly told Scarborough that the former Republican congressman needed to talk to the president himself about the issue, to which Scarborough replied that Trump was angry at him. The source said Kushner answered: “Well, then maybe you should apologize.”
So your assertion is that president Trump could authorize or kill a hit-piece in the National Enquirer? Gee, that's so much better.

Find a legitimate source. If you claim that Fox IS legitimate or AS legitimate as the mainstream media... Seriously, find a legitimate source.

What Scarborough has stated on the air is pretty much at odds with every single claim in your quote.

How do you decide that Fox' anonymous source is more credible than Scarborough himself?

Right. Because Fox News is such a reliable source.

But even the folks I know who follow Fox don't take the Enquirer seriously. I mean, I know in its history it has actually managed to break a news story or two, but its reputation is "for entertainment purposes only" news.

The Trump administration said Friday it will begin arresting parents and other relatives who hire smugglers to bring their children into the U.S. This part of the new “surge initiative” by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

See, it's so much fun to see idiots like you grabbing at straws in your hatred of Trump. Seriously, how many times have you read stories that insisted that THIS time it's the end of Trump. Indictments are coming. Just wait 24 business hours. He is doomed!!!11!!!

Hilarious. This story will die just like a few dozen stories before it. But as I said, it is good that the media keeps feeding you guys this crap. It keeps your little brains busy instead of getting some weird ideas like James Hodgkinson.

"Mensch is the co-founder of Heat Street, a conservative website ran by News Corp, a former member of the UK Parliament, and a frequent guest on MSNBC. She also propagates unfounded conspiracy theories in blog posts and tweets.

Just about all of Mensch’s theories have centered around Russian President Vladimir Putin and alleged operations by his government to undermine the American political system.

The former British MP moved on from both writing and managing Heat Street in January reportedly due to her tweets, and she’s now instead vice president of creative and strategy for News Corp. In the wake of her departure, however, Mensch launched a blog titled “Patribotics,” in which she flushes out her unfounded conspiracy theories in long stories instead of short tweets."

So this is a Conservative who publishes a blog of her conspiracy theories. Had never heard of it until now. OF COURSE you have.

More fake news, zero credibility on this one, as usual. We're going to have to file you with Adaher on the accuracy scale.

It's still a right-wing lie. Face it, it's your side with the fake news.
And you thought she was a lefty.

Well, Louise Mensch has about 12K twitter followers. That is a lot. I mean, a lot for any given person, at least. And, you know, it is a solid majority of the people who do not like Trμmp.

To be fair, the US Republican Party is much further to the right on the political spectrum than the British Conservative Party. So it wouldn't be that surprising that a US Republican supporter would confuse a British Conservative with being a librul, if they listened to what they had to say.

You're asked for your best example of an unreliable left wing news source spreading falsehoods, and you provide a right winger's blog site. I mean, it would be parody, if it weren't so consistent with previous nonsense.

Nah. Lots of evidence that "leftists" believe all kinds of crap that turns out to be nothing and will disappoint them to tears later can be found on this board. In this thread, too. It is very entertaining to watch, though. Kushner (and of course, as always, Trump) is doooomed I tell ya!

STOP THIS.

You cannot have a rational discussion with this poster, at least not about Trump. It just means if you want to find the real discussion, you have to scroll past all of the pointless back-and-forth with him.… It's a hamster wheel that goes nowhere.

Yes, and the best example you could come up with is an obscure blog written by a right winger. You had the ability to cherry pick whatever example you wanted. It was a gimmie, and you still managed to blow it.

From the link.
Quote:
“Trump said, ‘Let’s keep all the good people here and all the bad people out,’” Ramirez said.

“That’s great, but I’m here,” Ramirez said of his detention. “I’m not saying I’m the best person in the world, but I’ve tried to live a good life.”

He said he supports the Republican agenda on both fiscal and social issues and that he still supports Trump.

“Everything that he’s said against immigrants — it’s not that I’m in favor, but bad people don’t belong here,” Ramirez said. “In order to make America great, you have to have people contributing to this country.”

Ramirez said he also encouraged his youngest daughter to volunteer with the campaign of Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Vista)
That puts him in the "bad person" category.

Uh-Oh. According to The Washington Examiner () Sean "Little Joe Goebbels" Hannity tweeted Saturday saying he was very close to going "there" with Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski because he "is sick of their BS."

Hannity, sick of bullshit? Imagine that. C'mon C'mon, try harder.

For page after page. Apparently the self control required to resist the troll's bait is in short supply. Because it does take self control. And the ignore list.

That would be nice to see if Pence and TWWFA (The World's Worst Fucking Asshole) are really genuinely not getting along.

Quote:
A half-dozen Republicans, including four who advised or worked for Trump’s campaign or transition and are still in contact with their former colleagues, said they think the two sides are talking less, disagreeing more and occasionally bad mouthing each others’ bosses. One said the staffs are “walled off” from each other. Several of the Republicans asked to not speak publicly because of the sensitivity of the situation.

'I'm president and they're not'. Trump slams media in speech honoring veterans.

Trump appeared on a stage decorated with a massive American flag. Choirs performed "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" and other hymns and debuted a song with the lyrics "make America great again"
(Hint: The melody is to the song "Pop Goes the Weasel").

The event was sponsored by the usual suspects, The First Baptist Dallas and The Salem Media Group.

"Mr. Trump praised American veterans and promised to defend religious liberty in America." With the exception of Muslims, right?

You still think I'm a leftist. How amusing (sad) is that, Teeming Millions?

Trump appeared on a stage decorated with a massive American flag. Choirs performed "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" and other hymns and debuted a song with the lyrics "make America great again"
(Hint: The melody is to the song "Pop Goes the Weasel").

The event was sponsored by the usual suspects, The First Baptist Dallas and The Salem Media Group.
Trump, no doubt, loves that song. He probably thinks the refrain is about him.
