Sean Spicer loses it when NBC reporter asks ‘when can we trust the president?’

 

 

"Should they trust the president, is it phony or real when he says President Obama was wiretapped?”

 

“The president used the word wiretapping,” the press secretary continued, gesturing air quotes, “to mean, broadly, surveillance and other activities during that.”...

 

"....when he says something, can we trust that it’s real?” Alexander said again. “Or should we assume that it’s phony?”

“Trust that it’s real!” Spicer insisted.

“How can we believe that it’s real when you just told us that’s it’s phony?” Alexander shot back.

 

“The bottom line is the question is still not answered. Can you say affirmatively that whenever the president says something, we can trust it to be real?”

 

“If he’s not joking!” Spicer exclaimed.

"President Donald Trump pledged to forego a presidential salary, but as his second payday approaches, the White House is declining to say if the president has donated any of his earnings yet....

 

Salary donations are not the only area where Trump's pledges to donate revenue are lacking transparency.

During the transition, Trump also unveiled a plan to "donate all profits from foreign governments' patronage of his hotels and similar businesses" to the Treasury Department. The plan was released by Trump's private law firm, Morgan Lewis, but no system or accounting has been released for how or when such donations will be processed or disclosed....

"House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) and ranking member Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) have asked the White House to offer by Monday any evidence showing Trump Tower was wiretapped.

A congressional aide confirmed to The Hill that Schiff and Nunes made the request in a letter to the White House.........

Well, sorry to bother you, then. :mellow:

No biggie. I've always found counting

everyone eligible to vote a bit weird.

I can only imagine the furor if a President Hilary Clinton appointed a foreign agent to be head of National Security and was then given a treasure trove of classified information.  Where is the outrage from the GOP on Flynn's appointment?  Where is Jason Cheffetz?

They are interested in saving their own skins. Period.

Will the Republicans shut down their own government now that Trump wants to raise the debt ceiling?

Yes, either way Trump is a minority president. The only thing that

bothers me a little is that using all eligible voters makes every

president a minority president.

I was pointing out that the "voice of Real America" as some people on here like to characterize Trump's election is actually a minority of the actual US population.

 

I wasn't correcting you, but rather elaborating on your post.

We're using different numbers. I only meant people who actually voted,

not every one who was eligible to vote. If we used those, every president

would be a minority president. Of actual voters, Donny got, rounded up,

46% of the vote. And he wonders why there are so many protesters.

The last statistic I saw had it at 26% voted Trump and 74% either voted for someone else or didn't vote at all.

25%-- That does indeed make Trump the minority president.

Actually it was less than half. All it says is that people

will fall for promises, even promises that are pretty

illogical on their face. You've been Trumped.

Maybe when Lindsay Graham is investigating the Obama wire taps for baby Trump he can also look into what happened to his inauguration crowds ...
