You are peddling nonsense. It is up to you to be honest about it instead of spreading falsehoods.

The only ply I see is that just when something bad is breaking about Trump, there is something conveniently popping up to distract us. For instance, suddenly Ken Starr is in the news again with his decades-old report on Clinton.

Ratings? Do you imagine that Mueller is hoping for you to give him a good review on Yelp?

I can't help but think they have nothing on Trump but that is not going to stop them from looking.
The updates they give us that are supposed to be bomb shells have turned out to be nothing.
Did Trump really need Russians to tell him to concentrate his efforts on purple states?


These attacks on Trump will continue all the way up to the election in 2020. They are wearing away at his presidency and discrediting him at every turn while trying to cast a doubt over the country that he is even the rightful President.

It really is wearing on the general public except for those that eat the negativity up like ice cream.

That is one of the worst things about having him as president. You always want a president who you can respect, who inspires people, who sets an example or who you know is more intelligent than you are.

We've got a huckster-in-chief whose wife won't even ride in the same car with him to the airport.

This freak is embarrassing. I think Melania is probably signing off with #notmypresident.

Rinse, wash, and repeat the next week. Just for a quick reference, the Trump administration breathed life into many news networks and sources generating billions in revenue for them since the initial campaign announcement.


NYT: $2 Billion Worth of Free Media for Donald Trump


This is not even about fake news or liberals. These controversies are not entirely but seems to be in part, a ratings conspiracy. A specific and outlined ploy to generate consistent revenue off the 24/hr "outrage" cycle that Americans are addicted to ingesting. News networks and online sources that otherwise wouldn't regularly have a high ratings yield (outside of terrorist attacks and natural disasters) have a found a quick way to break even by creating yet another Trump "nothingburger" (in their words) disguised as a Whooper and the public bites and the bills are paid. The truth is, if they truly had anything substantial, it would have been out by now, the evidence would be clear, and he would be gone. In all actuality they don't have anything.
So, the FBI, CIA, and NSA are collaborating with the media in order to keep their ratings up?

Just when I think that I have heard it all, it turns out that I haven't.

Is this what Fox is bleating in order to keep their ratings up?

A foreign power that has been our enemy for the past 100 years has hacked the US electoral process and you figure out that it's a conspiracy between the CIA and CNN.

I hear that Face Book is having a sale on tinfoil hats. Better run back to your FB home page and check out the latest bargains available from the IRA.

Bet you don't even know what the IRA is without googling it, do you?

Sorry, do you need a safe space? It appears so, that you felt the need to respond to my single comment, twice.

If anyone has noticed, Trump generates theses controversies.

Trump ... and no one else.
Like those ultra socking revelations that Trump had 2 scoops of ice cream, or that he drove his golf cart on the green at one of his golf clubs, or that he didi't wave to the press before boarding AF1....yeah..stories of the century
