Does anyone care what Dan Rather thinks? He might be the "Father of Fake News."

This is baloney.

Bush Sr. was a high ranking government official. There simply is no way that those in his chain of command would not have kept close track of his son.
Sure. You'll believe anything.

Why are so many trying to deflect?

It. Doesn't. Matter. What. Rather. Did.

Trumps behavior disgraces the office of president and the country regardless of who is pointing it out.

This. Is. Not. Democrat. Vs. republican.

His policies are not the issue.

This is about country first not politics. The guy is a dog and his behavior lacks professionalism and class.

It won't stop as long as people are making pathetic weak attempts at rationalizing his immature behavior.

There is not only no record of him flying the F-102, you also will not find another pilot from any of his units who will go public and say they remember flying with him. And that's because they don't want to lie.

(I'm sure someone likely "cooked the books" prior to 2004 and forged up a fake flight book with George W. Bush's "flight hours", similar to the fake source that sunk Dan Rather at CBS. The proof is that no one can ever remember flying with Bush, and thats because he didn't fly anything.)

CNN had to drag Rather out of retirement to gain legitimacy.


They all want Trump to stop talking directly to us. Our government and media are not used to being exposed.

Dan isn't saying anything about lies, but that Trumps childish tweets are a disgrace to the Presidency and that Trump is his own worst enemy ...

Hey if you're fine to how Trump is presenting America to the rest of the world, my hats off to ya ... some people don't mind being the butt end of all the jokes ...

But, he's unintentionally very amusing. I, for one, don't want to see him removed. He's causing damage to the GOP and keeping their agenda from being advanced.

MAGA

So if Obama ruined the Democrat Party and Trump ruins the Republican Party, it could give the Libertarians a chance at the White House, yes? It could happen ...

Studies have shown that the Millennial population do like to have more choices in their lives, so maybe they will want to see those choices at the voting polls.

Government and media is not the only thing being exposed.

We all know that the media tends to sway one way or another these days even more so now then when Rather was a reporter.

Rather needs to go back to his room at the nursing home for aging news anchors and shut up. I am sure they want to know where he wondered off to. He is a disgrace. He tried to throw the election back in 2004 with fake documents and got caught and fired. He has zero credibility.

And Trump was recorded and it was released about how he handled himself with the ladies in the 80's. Talk about some one who needs to go back to the nursing home for the aging and who is a disgrace, yet, no one seems to notice, no one seems to care ...
