#1 So fucking what if Trump knew about the meeting beforehand? These cocksuckers are trying to criminalize opposition research when it's done by Republicans.

#4 Maybe we can return to the written Constitution where all men have equal standing before the courts, doing away with the fiat of the judiciary that there are private and public persons when libel is done, so to have one standard for us all. Then watch the consequences of unconstrained character assassination.

#6 ..given they have ratings, it appears a lot. Venal hatred seems to blind a lot. Venn diagram overlap significant.

#7 Trump doesn't feel the need to retract his own false postings. He had a sticky Tweet up about Google not advertising his SOTU addresses on Youtube. A simple search of the Wayback Machine proves that this is not true. Does Trump post a correction? Of course not. The tweet is still up and viewed by millions.

#9 EC, this is Rantburg, not the Daily Screamer. Most of us have for decades taken it for granted that Trump is a liar, but we're hoping that 1) he knows he's a liar, 2) he's a smart liar, and 3) his lying is motivated at least partly by the tactical utility of his lying, and of being perceived as a simpleminded, egomaniacal, shamelessly lying loose cannon.

If these things are true... we're in the presence of history-warping genius. If not... well, it's not as if we had much choice, and as left-menacing bogeys go, Trump's more "meanest Teletubby" than Hilter, no?
