Trump's Phony Sources.....

AREN'T so phony after all!

President Trump falsely accused The New York Times on Saturday of making up a source in an article about North Korea, even though the source was in fact a senior White House official speaking to a large group of reporters in the White House briefing room.

The president was referring to an article about the on-again, off-again summit meeting between Mr. Trump and Kim Jong-un, the leader of North Korea, which Mr. Trump had canceled Thursday.

The article, headlined, “Trump Says North Korea Summit May Be Rescheduled,” said that the United States was “back in touch with North Korea” and that the meeting might yet happen.

Trump's Tweet:
The Failing @nytimes quotes “a senior White House official,” who doesn’t exist, as saying “even if the meeting were reinstated, holding it on June 12 would be impossible, given the lack of time and the amount of planning needed.” WRONG AGAIN! Use real people, not phony sources.

It is not clear whether the president was simply unaware of the actions of his own senior staff or if he knowingly ignored the truth. The source of that sentence was a White House official who held a briefing on Thursday afternoon in the White House briefing room that was attended by about 50 reporters, with about 200 or so more on a conference call.

Lying again, Dear Leader (thanks Tristan!).

And now in a fit of totally circular reasoning Trump blames Democrats for HIS POLICY of ripping kids away from parents at the border.

Quote:
Put pressure on the Democrats to end the horrible law that separates children from there parents once they cross the Border into the U.S. Catch and Release, Lottery and Chain must also go with it and we MUST continue building the WALL! DEMOCRATS ARE PROTECTING MS-13 THUGS.
Trump Blames Dems for His Most Horrifying Immigration Policy

Catch this. The White House staffer who made insensitive remarks about Senator John McCain earlier this month reportedly accused her boss of leaking information to the press in a face-to-face meeting with President Donald Trump, according to Axios. The staffer, special assistant Kelly Sadler, was in an Oval Office meeting with Trump and a small group of communications officials — White House strategic communications director Mercedes Schlapp, deputy press secretary Raj Shah, and chief of staff John Kelly — when Trump reportedly asked Sadler who in the administration was leaking to the press. According to Axios, Sadler put the blame on Schlapp, her own boss. Axios reported that Schlapp "aggressively" defended herself.......

AND it begins....... Informing on our bosses, colleagues, neighbors, family and friends??

Soon the Trump Gestapo will be knocking on a door near you.

What if we all stopped taking Trump seriously? I am reminded of a Star Trek show where an alien was causing people on the spaceship to fight against each other, and Spock caught on to this invisible alien and instructed Kirk to tell everyone to respond with laughter and avoid anger. Sure enough, the alien was feeding off the anger and when people stopped getting angry with each other and stopped fighting, the alien lost all power and became non-existent.

I am sick to death of Trump pulling our strings and the strings of others. He creates false news and plays games to pull people's strings and that was blatantly obvious when he was elected on reports of false news, and intentionally created false news. Now he is doing it again because Republicans are coming up for election. Please, can we turn Trump's games against him? Instead of taking him seriously imagine him shrinking into the nothingness where he can do no more harm.

Trump doesn’t feed off of hate or anger, he feeds off the need to be the center of attention. The fact that what he does to get that attention pisses people off is a side effect. And, unfortunately, the fact that he is President means that he is next to impossible to ignore.

First, I would like to stress that the boss the underling accused of being the leaker was at that meeting.

But more of a shocker, this staffer badmouths a dying war hero and Senator, then accuses her boss in front of the bigger boss and still has a job.

How do you spell dysfunctional organization?
Thanks from Clara007

US, North Korean Officials Meet For Talks On Elusive Summit
Both Pyongyang and Washington are pressing ahead on plans for a summit after Donald Trump pulled out of the proposed June 12 meeting with Kim Jong Un

U.S. Officials Cross Into North Korea
May 27, 2018 at 10:07 am EDTBy Taegan Goddard26 Comments

“A team of U.S. officials crossed into North Korea on Sunday for talks to prepare for a summit between President Trump and Kim Un, as both sides press ahead with arrangements despite the question marks hanging over the meeting,” the Washington Post reports.

New York Times: “In a sign of just how important the summit is to Mr. Kim, he held an unexpected meeting on Saturday with President Moon Jae-in of South Korea, where he expressed a ‘fixed will’ to try to salvage it.”

“The measured response to the cancellation, and the extraordinary diplomatic scramble that followed, was a strong reminder, analysts said, that Mr. Kim not only wants a diplomatic deal with the United States. He may need one.”
https://politicalwire.com/2018/05/27...o-north-korea/

You know what is really scaring you Socialists to death? That Donald J Trump might very well be on the cusp of one of the greatest political foreign relations ever. Not only that, Trump is using the "art of the deal" to get it done. Going into midterms, you have to run againsta strong economy, againsta tax cut that is putting more money back into the pockets of the vast majority of working Americans, and now, maybe one of the greatest foreign relation successes in modern history.

Hey Stormy Daniels!!!!

Muh Russia!!!
