Trump is #2 in GOP Field - Page 206

post #3076 of 8748
I also use the Amazon Echo news brief when I brew my coffee every morning, so there is a quick 4 min summary of headlines from NPR and then BBC. The BBC's dislike for Trump really bled through too, which surprised me because their announcers usually have such a stiff upper lip to the point of being soulless. It was just in their tone when they spoke about him. They have really tightened it up though.

Bill Clinton and Obama both graduated and become experts in blowing wall street an neocons, so is only natural she follow their steps and apply what she learned.


Show me the part where Trump tells us how he is gonna stop wall street and US intervention in the middle east, or anywhere else for that matter

Woke up to Mitch "Tooter Turtle" Mcconnell  announcing to NPR that what was left of his soul had been sold to Trump Enterprises Inc.

I absolutely love it!

Truth be told I was never really excited to get it. I just figured it would be a nice little thing to spend money on, but I use it so consistently that I can't imagine not having it. I set timers when cooking, convert measurements, set alarms for when I take a nap, play all kinds of music, and the news brief updates multiple times a day. I also connect it to my phone with bluetooth to play podcasts.

There are many more functions, but I only use it for those. The technology itself is not anything more than Siri, but it's just convenient since it's hands free. I cook a lot so the time it's useful in my day to day life is significant. While not everyone enjoys it to the extent that I do, I have not come across anyone who regrets buying one.

Amazon Prime music has a lot of music. It also plays internet radio. And if you have a bunch of music on your HD you can upload that to your amazon music account so it can play that as well. It also integrates with Spotify and Audible. You can also use the app to line up all of your prefered news briefs. Mine plays in the order of NPR>BBC>The Economist> Bloomberg. It also somehow knows what your local radio stations are so I can say "Alexa, play NPR" and it just plays whatever is on the airwaves.

Will this whole lying about donating millions to veterans groups affect Trump?  I doubt it will, but it is shocking seeing military/veterans are a sacred cow in Republican circles.

I don't know if that is as important as his attack on the media yesterday. If he thinks they were critical before...

Did he actually lie about anything? It doesn't sound like it. Many of the more honest commentators have admitted that it's not unusual for events like his to take time to collect promised money, decide where to send it, etc.

I would refer you to his foreign policy speech, but you would tell me that it lacks exactness you'd expect from presidential candidate (irony) and it is all lies anyways, because Trump is liar and racist.

Did I answer your question?

I'm not so sure he's lying.The whole process from pledge to pocket is pretty sketchy.Like the revelation that Trump U. is not a "real" university well duh no shit.It only trivializes the real issues like shilling purple two tone french cuff dress shirts made in Bangladesh for $17.95 at Target. This is styleforum

I don't know.  Most of what I have seen has been mixed - the most favorable coverage for Trump said it is possible it was indeed just taking a long time to collect and vet charities.  Others are saying that he (or his campaign) said he had already donated the money, and it was only after some reporters kept following up did he actually provide details.

I don't know if Trump was "lying", but his hostility about pretty basic fact checking isn't a good sign. It would have been trivial for him to say "Hey it takes a little while to distribute money like that, so here's the statement with the amounts and recipients."

Instead he went on the warpath against the "scumbag" journalists who dared ask that he actually substantiate a pledge he had made.

Eh not so much a liar as a shape shifting lizard from the Triangulum galaxy dispatched to earth to assess whether the legendary gullibility of media fixated humans is myth or fact

TRUMP should tone down his idiocy, people sharing the stage with him during his recent rants feel visibly uncomfortable and it does not bode well for anyone.
