Donald Trump goes on early morning Twitter rant against unverified reports that Russia has embarrassing information about him.

Really? You are going to cite denials by Russia as evidence?
That is a patently false statement.

Okay the fact that he cited Nazi Germany made me choke on my coffee.

Trump using lies and disinformation to defend himself against these allegations makes it hard to defend him, but to be fair he is not completely wrong.

The documents released by Buzzfeed, are indeed unverified, and by all accounts though numerous journalists have worked to verify them they have failed to do so.

So even though this story has been widely reported by a number of news outlets, most of them make sure to tell their visitors that there is no independent verification of the accusations.

However as for Trump claiming this is "fake news" it seems appropriate to share a story that Newsweek posted yesterday which contained this little tidbit:

Even as Trump was disputing the role played by the Kremlin in the hacking, his campaign was scouring sites publicly identified by American intelligence as sources for Russian propaganda. Ten days before the third debate, Newsweek published an article exposing how Trump had cited—as fact—a document altered by Russian propagandists and put out on the internet, suggesting (erroneously) that Clinton’s closest allies believed she bore responsibility for the attack on the American mission in Benghazi, Libya. 

Sputnik, which has been publicly identified by intelligence agencies as a key disinformation site of the Kremlin, published an article citing the document. The site, which later took down the article, published another one attacking Newsweek and essentially denying the news organization was controlled by the Kremlin. Before the day was out, the Trump campaign was emailing links of that article to multiple reporters, including at publications like The Daily Caller, urging them to pursue the story.

If you live by the fake news sword, you die by the fake news sword.

Trump may be correct that those unverified reports are complete BS, but the problem is that they fit quite well with stories that contain verified information which paint a picture of a man deeply beholden to Russia and seemingly controlled by that country's tyrannical dictator.

Personally I do not think that you need this newest unverified story to know that Donald Trump is completely unfit to lead this country.

    I think trump leaked this himself because now his news conference will now focus on this stuff and not on his taxes, and nominees not being vetted, and who pays for the wall, and having his son-in-law on his staff, Joey no socks, and on and on and on. I just think the timing is questionable. The news conference was supposed to be about conflicts of interest, not anymore.

    This is patently and demonstrably untrue. Donald Trump does have business ties in Russia and his nominee as secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, has even more damaging business ties to Russia.

    Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and, in violation of the law, his senior advisor, also has Russian ties, as Vox pointed out:

    “Foreign investors, including some from Russia and China, have invested in Kushner’s companies, including Cadre and the real estate firm.”

    The Washington Post‘s intrepid David Farenthold also jumped into the fray in response to Trump’s frenzy of denials:

    ...In a word, Donald Trump, his family and cabinet are lousy with business ties to Russia.

    ...The icing on the cake is Trump alluding to Nazi Germany. Yes, the man who accepted the enthusiastic endorsement of the KKK and American Nazis, gave and received Hitler salutes, who repeated Adolf Hitler’s own anti-Semitic tropes in his speeches, is asking if we are living in Nazi Germany:

    ...This is all easily settled, of course. As The Plum Line’s Greg Sargent points out,

    'If this is fake news, why not support a full and independent probe into all aspects of this whole affair that would prove *you* right?'

    ...Trump doesn’t like it when the shoe is on the other foot. He reveled in dispensing invented facts and lies but even the hint that he might be the Kremlin’s stooge has him collapsing into paroxysms of hypocrisy. In the process, as The Washington Post‘s Mark Berman notes with some amusement, Trump managed to misquote the Kremlin statement:

    Obama Isn’t Saying Goodbye, He Is Setting The Stage For The Next Great Fight

    For President Obama, his farewell address wasn’t so much of a retirement party, but a transitional speech that offered hints at what his post-presidential career will hold.

    The President gave a hint of what his next fight will be when he said:

    ...Obama is going back to his organizer roots. Donald Trump’s victory, which should be viewed as the last great gasp of the white Baby Boomer generation, is not the future.

    Barack Obama understands that the future is not in a white billionaire seventy-year-old. The future is in the generation of leaders that were inspired and grew up in the Obama years.

    President Obama may have said goodbye to his presidency in his farewell address, but he was also setting the stage for his next great fight.

      Just to keep the record straight: "A plantar wart is a wart occurring on the sole or toes of the foot. They are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV infections in other locations are not plantar warts."

    2. Anonymous8:25 AM

      drumpf has something..

      "Genital warts caused by HPV are soft, bumps that are usually painless, may be itchy, and sometimes bleed. They can be found in the groin, genitals, buttocks and inside the vagina or anus. Since many strains of HPV do not produce visible warts, most people do not show any signs or symptoms of an HPV infection." The MAN IS a walking WART.

    Also important to point out that whether these allegations are true or not, they're not new. It's not some 4Chan hoax that was created in the last few days--rumors and innuendo of this sort of thing (sexual kompromat) has been whispered about by media people since well before the election.
    It's never been published before because it is (understandably) hard to verify.

      Actually it was originally posted

The original reads like bad porn fan fic catering to the fetish golden shower crowd and was written by a Trump supporter who then passed in on to a GOP staffer, all in an attempt to get the MSM to bite on it and discredit themselves.

  16. PS as I'm listening to Trump's press release, a red fox just ran past my house. Here is a portion of the Fox Spiritual meaning:
    "The fox is known for sneaking into homes and getting away without being caught. Because of it’s characterized by its cunning ability, this animal has acquired the image of trickster in a number of cultures.

    When the fox appears in your life, it may indicate that you need to pay attention to people or circumstances that may be deceiving or tricking you into going down a path that does not necessarily serves you. This spirit animal may call you to be more discerning in relationships, whether it’s in business or friendships, or in choices you make for yourself."

    2. Anonymous8:11 AM

      ;-) a bit more:
      "Have you ever been tricked by someone? Of course you have! Who hasn't? Some people are just good at pulling the wool over others' eyes. Sometimes you may hear people say such tricksters are “sly as a fox."

      But what exactly does that mean? Are foxes really sly? And, if so, how did people find out? Were they tricked by foxes?

      “Sly as a fox" has been a traditional saying for hundreds of years. It means that someone is particularly crafty or tricky. If you're as sly as a fox, you are experienced and cunning and can usually get whatever you want, sometimes by underhanded means.

      Long ago, fables, such as Aesop's The Fox and the Crow, portrayed the fox as a creature that was very crafty and cunning as a hunter. Although there are plenty of other animals that are cunning hunters, the fox became associated with trickery.

      For example, many medieval stories feature a character called Reynard the Fox. Reynard the Fox is a red fox who acts like a human. He is the central character of many fables from France, England and Germany. Reynard is known as a trickster who always gets into trouble, yet can always talk his way out of it!

      Most fables featuring Reynard the Fox include other animals that also act like humans. Reynard is often portrayed as being captured or killed, only to trick the other animals in the end. He usually gets his revenge in a cunning and crafty way.

      How common is the image of the sly fox? Very common! For example, the sly fox is referred to over and over again in many of Shakespeare's plays.

      This view of the fox has found its way into other words, too. Have you ever heard of a vixen? A vixen is a mean or argumentative woman. Where did the word come from? A vixen is also the official term for a female fox!"

      Trump does in fact have his own private security force. So this means his security forced should have prevented the alleged blackmail golden shower video. If he's actually into that kind of kinky stuff, he's paying these people to keep it on the down low for him. UNLESS Trump's security has been infiltrated and compromised. Who would want to or have the means and assets to do such a thing? Hmmmm. Exxon? Who is rearing his head into our airspace?
      GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — President-elect Donald Trump has continued employing a private security and intelligence team at his victory rallies, and he is expected to keep at least some members of the team after he becomes president, according to people familiar with the plans.

      The arrangement represents a major break from tradition. All modern presidents and presidents-elect have entrusted their personal security entirely to the Secret Service, and their event security mostly to local law enforcement, according to presidential security experts and Secret Service sources.

      But Trump — who puts a premium on loyalty and has demonstrated great interest in having forceful security at his events — has opted to maintain an aggressive and unprecedented private security force, led by Keith Schiller, a retired New York City cop and Navy veteran who started working for Trump in 1999 as a part-time bodyguard, eventually rising to become his head of security.

    That presser was a mess. Chuck Todd said it was a circus and not surprising. One person, stationed in Russia, referred to its "thinness." ON MSNBC the Brookings Ins. person said that Trump's plan with his lawyer (it was obvious to him and the anchor that Trump's lawyer was in over her head) didn't take care of any of the ethics problems. People were blown away, but not shocked, at hos little Trump said and how little was being done re his financial situation. One thing Trump said that was stunning to them was how Trump said that he had turned down a 2 billion dollar proposition. He "didn't have to," he said. No not true! He keeps insisting that it's not possible for the president to have conflicts of interest--he keeps referring to one piece of info and using it to cover his whole ass with...and of course it's not possible. As he said on the trail, he said, "If I want, I can run my company and the government at the same time."

    He said so many ridic things. He was still in campaign mode and kept dissing Hillary. He was connecting her with these latest reports--that was clear. As well, Obama via what he said about the ACA, which of course he called say was disastrous enough times. It cracked me up how he repeated this idea that they--he and Congress--could just "sit back, watch and wait, and criticize" Obamacare and "let it implode in 2017," but he had decided not to. Yeah, right, after all this talk by the GOP and him about the ACA needing to repealed. He also said that he wants it repealed and replaced closely together and soon. Yesterday he was saying within several days or a week, and the GOP in congress made it clear that this is not possible, yet today Trump said it will be replaced the "same day, same week, or even same hour." Okay....

    Chuck Todd and others talked about how there were "no details" and he "ignored" questions. Everything that he did answer was so general, but it was wild to watch how he could not answer a question that was more than one part. You could see that it went in one ear and out the other. He got a couple followups and added nothing new. A couple people mentioned how he never answered the question re his camp having contact with the Russians. He said a "no" only as he was leaving the room--it was not in front of the camera on stage.

    Ugh. He was asked a question about Lindsey Graham that was related to Congress investigating, Graham's job on the Armed Services committee, and his response was about the campaign and he made a snide comment about how how "he's gonna break 1%--get 1% of the vote, that is,someday. Made no sense and he simply dissed a sitting senator and his job to investigate.

    Oh my god, and his ending to that thing was so bad. He went back to the financial matter and said that if his sons didn't do a good job taking care of the company, then when he left office he'd say "You're fired." And he chuckled and said "Goodbye"--yes, just a lame "Goodbye" and that was it.

      An ethics attorney under GW bush said that if trump doesn't sell his DC hotel they will have charges against him because he is taking money from the lobbyists and diplomats that stay there.

      I think having that attorney read her memo on "getting rid of his business interests" was another diversion. A lot of words but someone has to see the actual documents.

    If it is all lies and fake news then traitor trump should have no problem with it being fully investigated and will demonstrate with financial documents that he has/had no ties with russia.

    I believe he also said something during his press circus, that he has no problem if russia helped him get elected because putin likes him or words to that effect.

    Clearly he doesn’t grasp the concept of a democracy or he is completely clueless.

    Trump Staff Laughed, Clapped Along During Adversarial Press Conference

    NEW YORK -- Donald Trump was met with a rousing round of applause when he exited the elevators Wednesday at Trump Tower for his first press conference in 167 days.
    But that enthusiastic greeting came from members of his own staff, not the estimated hundreds of reporters who gathered to ask him questions.

    Trump's family waited in the wings of the stage to his right, while senior advisers including Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, Sean Spicer and Steve Mnuchin stood to the left, out of view of the cameras. A small, vocal group clustered near Trump's family by the elevators acted as cheerleaders for the President-elect for the duration of the hour-long event, laughing heartily at his jokes and responding aloud to his rhetorical questions.
    When Trump asked if Russian president Vladimir Putin would have found Hillary Clinton to be a greater adversary, a few of his staffers called out "no!"

    His mention of his longtime secretary, Rhona Graff, while he recalled how he set up his own test to smoke out any leakers on his staff after a meeting with U.S. intelligence officials was also met with a knowing chuckle.

    This chorus of affirmation made a jarring contrast to the adversarial tone of the press conference itself. Trump refused to take questions from a reporter from CNN, which he branded "fake news," and from BuzzFeed, which he called a "failing pile of garbage."

    CNN on Tuesday published a report that U.S. intelligence officials presented both Trump and President Barack Obama with a two-page document summarizing allegations that Russian operatives had "compromising personal and financial information" about the President-elect, while BuzzFeed published the 35-page dossier from which the news site said those allegations were drawn.

    Because Trump's cheering section was blocked by a line of reporters crowded into the packed room, it was difficult to differentiate it from members of the press. That prompted some observers on Twitter to believe that it was the assembled journalists applauding:...

    Traitor Trump thinks a Presidential news conference is just another scripted reality show.It's like he is the Emperor throwing red meat to the crowd.

    If he chooses his own ethics adviser,isn't that unethical? It's not like he would hire someone who would go against him.

    He thinks we are all so stupid, like his supporters. What about his current projects? he is just talking about future plans.

    Trump finally announced his plan to avoid business conflicts. It’s a sham.

    This will be how he operates. He will be very vague and lie constantly and he will shield himself from anything reported by the media by calling it a lie and fake news. Only his brain dead supporters are gullible enough to buy into it.

    Trump presser rattles Chuck Todd: ‘I am struck at how normal crazy looked’

    ...NBC host Chuck Todd reacted to President-elect Donald Trump’s press conference on Wednesday by lamenting that “crazy” had become the new “normal.”

    “I was struck big picture-wise of how normal a circus is now to us,” Todd said. “This was a circus. We’ve never seen a president-elect, a transition like we saw today.”

    “The press conference gets interrupted, you have a lawyer in here [who] does half legal talk, half political spin,” the NBC host continued. “I’ve never seen that, using the lawyer to say, ‘He’s here to make America great again. And oh by the way, I’m going to play constitutional lawyer.'”

    “So I am struck at how normal crazy looked to us today. I mean, this was just a crazy scene. This is the normal of Donald Trump.”

    According to Todd, the press conference benefited Trump because “it made the press look disjointed, unorganized.”

    “It was a performance for his supporters and his people,” he remarked. “If you’re looking for answers out of Donald Trump, it’s the one-on-one interviews. And I don’t just say that because I’m biased about one-on-one interviews on Meet the Press. It is just, he is very good at deflection.”

    Trump Refuses To Answer CNN's Question: 'You're Fake News'

    So now the President-elect just calls reporters from cable news "fake news" and refuses to answer their questions during a press conference.

    And CNN's Jim Acosta, who is now the story, retweeted this (as true)

    1. So stop attending the circus. It's unproductive.

      Pretty soon the news will be how many of the press were NOT in attendance.

      He's crying wolf? Treat him the same way.

    Trump did his best to muddy the waters on the CNN report by lumping it in with Buzzfeed’s publication of unsubstantiated memos. As CNN pointed out, Trump is using Buzzfeed to deflect from the very real allegations made by CNN.

  57. Anonymous11:09 AM

    CNN tried to get a question in and the reporter was shut down. Trump said that CNN had "savaged" him. Sean Spicer told the reporter he'd be thrown out if he tried asking a question again. But throughout, Trump was making it look as if CNN and Buzzfeed were in cahoots. CNN, after the press conference, talked in specifics about how their reporting differed from Buzzfeed's and they never released any of the info in that report that BF released. CNN wanted to know what Trump's team considered "inaccurate," a claim Conway and others were making about CNN, but of course no specifics were ever stated. Trump was making CNN look bad and using them to feed into the "dishonest media" claim. Most people aren't aware of Buzzfeed but of course know CNN, so Trump was working at connecting CNN as much as possible to aspects of the BF story that CNN never actually reported on.

  58. Is this the 'The Americans' season 5?

    Just imagine what it will be like after the reality TV star is sworn in. We are f----ed.

  60. Look, let's give the man the benefit of the doubt. Here's what could've happened:

    He was by himself in the hotel room. Got naked, as usual and waddled his flabby frame under the covers. Unbeknownst to him, there was a jellyfish lurking under there, as they often do at Russian Hotels. It bit him. The pain was excruciating. Remembering the cure for jellyfish bites from episodes of Baywatch that he repeatedly watched, he tried pissing on the wound but his tiny member could not hit the spot.

    Thinking like the smart businessman he is, he immediately called the concierge and asked for two hookers, pronto. "Don't send me any fat ones. They've gotta be "10's" —and I don't mean two "5's", they each gotta be "10's". This is an important assignment."

    The hookers arrived promptly and, as instructed, drank copious amounts of water on the way. When they saw Trump, they wished they'd drank vodka instead.

    Still, a job's a job, they thought. They got naked and did the deed.

    "Darned Russian golden showers aren't working!" screamed Trump, "Get outta here, I ain't paying you."

    As revenge, the disgruntled damsels leaked the story to Hillary, who stored it on her server which the Russians hacked and that's how the story got out.

    It was the Russians that left out the part about the jellyfish, because, "who'd believe THAT?" they thought.

    The End.
