I'm sure he will announce that last second entry Michael Wolff as the winner.Maybe "Sloppy Steve" Bannon (can't deny it, Donny was on the money with change describing Mr. Alt-Wrong with that nickname) gets fake news source of the year.

Might be amusing to see Trump's latest meltdown vis a vis the media.But it's kinda getting old.

Donald J. Trump tweet
"The Fake News Awards, those going to the most corrupt & biased of the Mainstream Media, will be presented to the losers on
Wednesday 17th, rather than this coming Monday. The interest in, and importance of, these awards is far more important than anyone could have anticipated!"

I'd make Trump accusation of Obama's not being born in the USA evens.

That's real fake news.

But seeing how 0bama never acted like an American, it is easy to see how one could be confused.

So what do we call the awards for Fake News?
How about the Lemmy's, in honor of FNN's Don Lemon, king of the lias!
Or the Lemmings, of the Lemonheads.

Now, this could be a tight contest. Who would win the award? Obama's literary agent? Michelle Obama? Obama's grandma? Or Obama himself?

Not you too.

LOL.

There is no hope for you conspiracy theorists.

Just more fake news.

I deal in facts not opinion.

Obama was clearly born in the US, a natural born citizen.

you do know there is a diversity of ideas of what American is?

Hell our country was born from dissent of our founding fathers.

Do you deny those people either said outright he was born in Kenya or implied that he was?

So they're up for the award too, aren't they?

Its not too late to be nominated. I think it will be on twitter not television.

How does an American act? They don't apologize to the world for our exceptionalism.

you do know there is a diversity of ideas of what American is? One of them probably not being giving Iran nukes and billions of $$$ to sponsor world-wide terrorism

Hell our country was born from dissent of our founding fathers. Yes, and what set it off was a 3% tax. Imagine what they would have done if they were forced to buy insurance they did not want!

when in the course of human events...... "clutching their guns and their bibles"

SOUTH American, maybe.

A couple days before the big night, I suspect we may find out who Fusion GPS
has been paying to report on the "dossier", the reporters and news outlets.

It may be best to wait for the final past performances to come out also with weights, workouts and trainer changes. Some of these may not have run for up to a year. :eek:

So you admit two of them. We can use the video of Michelle saying Kenya was her husband's homeland. For Obama, we'll just have to show his biography that he approved of for 16 years saying he was born in Kenya.

Most people don't have multiple family members and business associates confused on where they were born.

He postponed the awards a couple weeks, maybe coming up with more categories.

This is the kind of thing that drives liberals nuts that his base absolutely loves.

This may be the only award show I have any interest in watching. I've haven't seen any of the music, movie, or acting award shows in quite awhile. No one hates the media more than I do (except maybe Trump). So I'm looking forward to seeing if the people and media companies I think are the worst get picked.

If I'm reading the postponement right, Trump may be making quite the production of it. He said that it's generated more interest than he thought, and that several comedians said they want to be involved. That makes me think they're actually writing a script and making a real production of it, much like a roast. I'm hoping. That'd really get the diehard lib media if he makes this "must see TV."

It was not the tax they objected to. It was the American colonists being treated as second class citizens compared to their breathern back in England. Taxation without representation. They didn't mind paying taxes.
It was paying taxes without be represented,

Obamacare on the other hand was passed by the American congress.

The American people had proper representation for it.

You may not like it at the time.

But it was properly passed by congress.

Obamacare on the other hand was passed by the American congress.

And it was unconstitutional unless it was called a tax, which it was not.
And it was a big reason why TRUMP is no in the WH and Hillary is festering somewhere, rotting away, closer and closer to room temperature. We waited and got rid of the dimwitted dem legally. So lump it if you don't like Trump.


And btw, 3% tax on alcohol was a tipping point.
Rightfully so.

Ok. To each their own. I hadn't wanted to watch a Presidential debate fairly badly as I did this past year. We keep knocking him, but he brings it.

Today's meeting probably has the press with severe stomach cramps. They had to like what they saw but they have to figure out how to spin it as something negative.

President Trump before 1st Cabinet meeting of 2018:

"On a separate front, we are going to take a long look at our countries libel laws so that when somebody says something that is false and defamatory against someone, that person will have meaningful recourse in our courts.

If somebody says something that's totally false, that the person that has abused, defamed, libeled will have meaningful recourse.

Our current libel laws are a sham and a disgrace, and do not represent American values or American fairness. So were going to take a strong look at that. And I think what the American people want is fairness."

A little heads up before the award show?
