No communication with Russians? Lots of evidence this a lie.

...

The list of Trump's lies goes on for pages.

Then there are the lies told by his staff.

John Kelly stood up and lied about Representative Wilson. Not a bit of truth to it.

Where do they find the gall?
Trump and his team lie to our faces on a daily basis yet they are concerned about a gossipy book?


This is why they have so little credibility.

If this book had no merit, Trump wouldn't be so completely freaked out about it. But in fact there is a lot of truth to what it says about his dysfunctional administration. Give it a read, it's pretty good.

Not to mention the fact that our current economy is due to Obama's policies, not Trump. The U.S. economy doesn't change overnight.

Of course, Mr. Trump is hesitant to face the press, since they will be asking impertinent questions. Perhaps Mr. Trump will see this on Fox News, and adopt the practice:


https://www.upi.com/Top_News/World-N...l&utm_medium=2


In short, the leader of Thailand created a life-size cardboard cutout of himself, and when reporters desire to ask him questions, he refers them to the cutout. "Talk to the hand" is passé, so this may catch on.
:I can see Trump doing that.

ok, it's a simple matter that mark berman got conflated with mike berman. a basic error that will most likely be adjusted in future printings and is of no significant consequence to the material.

I heard Mr. Wolff mentioned this in person on one of the TV shows in the past few days and he apologized and said it was a mistake. He brought it up at the start of the discussion.

Gimmeabreak.

Every day we're learning about more and more of this book that should be in the "fiction" aisle.

Let's see...

-He claims to have tapes, but doesn't plan on releasing them because " if something has the ring of truth, that's all that's necessary."

-He's already admitted to various "mistakes."

-He claimed to have "had the inside track" to the WH, then said that he never actually spoke with any cabinet member or the VP.

-CNN's Alisyn Camerata's take on the book says it all--Wolff allowed people to "spin yarns." Look it up, yourselves, if you missed the rest of what she said.

-If you believe Wolff's unsubstantiated "scoop" that Fox's top-paid Hannity engaged in a quid pro quo to get a coolie wage job at the WH, I'll sell you a toll booth to go with the bridge you've most likely already bought.

-Vogue doyenne Anna Wintour has cried BS on Wolff's claim in the book that she lobbied for a job as UK ambassador in the Trump administration. You've GOT to be kidding me. Anyone who knows anything about Wintour knows which way she rolls politically. Hint: it's not "right."


That's only so far. Put your big boy shorts and big girl panties on, people. Use your heads. And if you think that Wolff's self-serving garbage is going to be this year's Access Hollywood tape, that'll only be the case in that it, too, won't be the big exposé that "takes down" Trump.

The vile hag lost. Get over it.
