Shall we continue?
Don't act like you don't know this fake news story was going all over the net and that some people were claiming it was from Florence and that Cooper was lying. Trump, Jr. may not have specifically said it was from Florence, but the implication from his tweet is clearly there.

You don't need to answer. Trump Jr was intentionally misleading OR he's an idiot thinking a picture from 2008 was actually from 2018. Trump Jr's explanation after the fact is simply because he was caught in a lie or was shown to be an idiot. Pick either.

Out of all the thousand of pics that there surely of Anderson Cooper by now, he randomly chooses this one....a scene of reporting in a flood where the camera crew is above. While a hurricane is currently happening. People are going to very naturally think it's the current one with no further context.

Disingenuous of Jr. indeed. If people can't see that, you're not being honest.

AC did it factually and intelligently. Trump Jr. is no more than a privileged know it all that thinks he can sit back and troll journalist and others who have EARNED the right to be in their respected careers such as AC. JR. does nothing but ride his father's coat tail like his father rode his grandfather's. They are pathetic. More American's are starting to wake up to their ignorance on the Trumps. They are an embarrassment especially Jr and Kushner.

Yes the Donald Jr. is now spinning it that he was just talking about the dwindling ratings of CNN.

BUT if you read the replies to his tweet , his fans thought he was suggesting Cooper was misrepresenting the storm. Fake News, etc.

AND Breitbart took down the picture of Cooper or Trump Jr. used the picture of Cooper purposely.

Also -- for those of us on social media -- we know very well that day that picture was used to discredit Cooper on conservative media sites and it was retweeted by every Trump fan that knows how to retweet or share on Facebook.

I was very smug and self righteous when I could post that my conservative friends were wrong - AGAIN...doesn't anybody every google before they click and share.

The other message that day with those fake news was the 'blaming Trump' for the storms. Yup -- the lefties blame Trump for the storm.

Nah -- that wasn't the message -- but comprehension fails again. We blame Trump for not accepting the fact that FEMA failed Puerto Rico -- Yes Puerto Rico had issues but are we saying this administration is so incompetent they couldn't overcome those issues --

Sadly, you have been misinformed.

The last Republican POTUS to leave the nation in better economic shape than he found it was Eisenhower.


Every Democratic President has left the nation in the same or better economic shape than he found it, some substantially better. (Google: Clinton, Obama)

Data show that "since World War II, the economy has performed substantially better under Democratic presidents. On average, real (inflation-adjusted) GDP has grown about 1.6 times faster under Democrats than under Republicans. While the strong performance under Presidents Truman, Kennedy and Johnson certainly contributes to this gap, the starting point does not matter: GDP has grown faster under Democrats regardless of whether the analysis begins with President Truman, President Kennedy or President Reagan."

https://www.jec.senate.gov/public/in...can-presidents


Published in 2016 by the American Economic Association, economists Alan Blinder and Mark Watson write:

"The US economy has performed better when the president of the United States is a Democrat rather than a Republican, almost regardless of how one measures performance. For many measures, including real GDP growth (our focus), the performance gap is large and significant. "

https://www.aeaweb.org/articles?id=10.1257/aer.20140913

Right now the economic engine of our nation are the areas that vote for Democrats.

"Counties that Donald Trump won generated just 36 percent of the country’s output—just a little more than one-third of the nation’s economic activity."

https://www.brookings.edu/blog/the-a...utput-america/

Seems poor Don Jr. was misinformed and is spreading lies as well.

You are making no sense at all.


CNN helped Hillary to cheat the debates. When she did it, CNN covered it up. Wikileaks exposed it, and Donna Brazille, involved in the DNC was forced to quit CNN.



It's all there on record. CNN is corrupt to the core. Why you guys defend them without question is beyond me.

I apologize to the rest of the folks in this thread that I allowed Waldo to deflect from what this thread is about. Waldo, you're free to start a new thread about "Crooked Hillary" if you'd like. This thread is about Crooked Junior
