Donald Trump claims that the head of the Boy Scouts said his speech was "the greatest speech that was ever made to them." Except he never said any such thing.

What are you doing with your hands, waving? Okay I can wave.
Courtesy of Time Magazine:

President Donald Trump told the Wall Street Journal that after his controversial speech at the Boy Scouts National Jamboree in West Virginia, the head of the Boy Scouts called him and told him it was "the greatest speech that was ever made to them." 

But the organization told TIME they are unaware of any call from national leadership placed to the White House. “The Chief Scout Executive’s message to the Scouting community speaks for itself,” the organization said, referring to a July 27 statement from Michael Surbaugh, the Chief Scout Executive for the Boy Scouts of America, who apologized to anyone in the scouting community who could have been offended or alarmed by the political rhetoric in the speech.

Donald Trump glossed over that apology in his interview saying this:

And I got a call from the head of the Boy Scouts saying it was the greatest speech that was ever made to them, and they were very thankful.

Trump also claimed to the Wall Street Journal that there was a standing ovation that lasted "for five minutes after I had already gone."

I forgot, is it still news when Trump tells a blatant lie that is then refuted by a respected national institution? Or is that now just to be expected?

    "....the head of the Boy Scouts called him ...."

    Why doesn't the media follow up with questions like what was the name of the head of the boyscouts who called President Trump and made those comments since President Trump hates anonymous sources?

  6. Comey is writing a book.

    "According to Bloomberg News, Flatiron Books has inked a deal with Comey for a reported figure of over $2 million. Sadly, the book, which is slated for spring, will not be a spy novel packed with intrigue and presidential malfeasance, but a nonfiction account of his career in government.

    That doesn’t mean it won’t have any thrills, however.

    Flatiron’s publisher and president Bob Miller said in a statement, that the master of shocking White House anecdotes will “share yet-unheard anecdotes from his long and distinguished career.” Drawing on his years serving various U.S. presidents, Miller stated, “Director Comey will give us unprecedented entry into the corridors of power, and a remarkable lesson in leadership itself.” "

    And Comey didn't sign no fucking non-disclosure statement either.

    Oh, this is gonna be good. He's got notes of plenty of non-security clearance stuff.

    Waiting now for the Spicer and Priebus memoirs.

    Trump is such an ass! And liar, and fraud, and idiot! He does not represent America and Americans - he represents himself. Period! Way past time that he's shoved out of the office he is supposedly holding for America! God, do I wish we had Hillary Clinton as POTUS!

  8. We're fucked. Lindsay Graham says Trump is ready to go to war with North Korea. Yeah, like we haven't seen that coming.

    "Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) says President Donald Trump is ready for war with North Korea if the rogue nation doesn’t cease its development of a nuclear missile capable of reaching the United States.

    “He has told me that. I believe him,” Graham said on NBC’s “Today” on Tuesday. “If I were China, I would believe him, too, and do something about it.” "

    " “There is a military option: to destroy North Korea’s program and North Korea itself,” Graham said, adding that he prefers a diplomatic solution.

    The White House did not respond to Graham’s comments about North Korea; however, Vice President Mike Pence said on Tuesday that “all options are on the table.” "

    We are so fucking screwed.

    "Graham urged North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un to back off while he still can, as continuing to develop these weapons would make a war “inevitable.” "

    "“If there’s going to be a war to stop (Kim), it will be over there,” he said. “If thousands die, they’re going to die over there. They’re not going to die here, and [Trump’s] told me that to my face.” "

    He's going to nuke North Korea.

    Will Gen. Kelly be able to stop him?

      Any war with North Korea will directly affect many, many thousands of Americans in South Korea, Japan and possibly Taiwan. It will also directly affect our allies in those countries.

      None of this is necessary. It is all part of the Trump administration rhetoric to change the subject from their unlawful misdeeds during the 2016 campaign and their current pillaging of every major federal program in place before they took over in January. Besides, Trump and Republicans believe that Americans will support any war. Look what happened when George W. Bush waged war against Iraq which, while responsible for a lot against its own people, was not responsible for 9/11.

  9. Trump thought the kids showed up for him---not the other way around. He is a delusional, needy creature.

  15. The ACLU has written a hilarious brief to defend John Oliver against coal baron Robert Murray. It almost sounds like Oliver wrote it having quickly gone to law school and passed the bar during the 4 weeks he was off the air.

    "The American Civil Liberties Union thinks a defamation lawsuit filed by a coal industry titan against comedian John Oliver is a joke.

    So the organization has filed an amicus brief for Oliver that is, frankly, hilarious while making the point that free speech is still protected by the First Amendment."

    "The brief also directly addresses Murrary with section headings like “All of John Oliver’s Speech Was Protected by the First Amendment. You Can’t Sue People for Being Mean to You, Bob”; “Plaintiff’s Requested Injunction Is Clearly Unconstitutional. You Can’t Get a Court Order Telling the Press How to Cover Stories, Bob”; and “Anyone Can Legally Say ‘Eat Shit, Bob!’”

    The ACLU also argues the “case is about Murray not liking a television program and somehow believing that is a legally actionable offense,” adding, “apparently because [Murray’s] delicate sensibilities were offended, they clutched their pearls and filed this suit.”

    The brief also explains that truth is a defense in defamation lawsuits and includes this photo to defend Oliver’s claim that, yes, Murray does look like a “geriatric Dr. Evil.” "

    They've got all 16 pages of the brief in the article for anyone that wants to read it all. Plus the video of the original segment that instigated the lawsuit.

    Oh, yeah, the judge is going to have a lot of fun with this one before he dismisses Murray's ass.

  22. Trump now going all in on slashing LEGAL immigration.

    "President Donald Trump threw himself behind a bill on Wednesday that would make it dramatically more difficult for people to come to the U.S. legally, in spite of his past claims that he did not want to cut the number of people allowed into the country.

    Trump held an event at the White House with Sens. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and David Perdue (R-Ga.) to boost the latest iteration of their bill to slash the ways foreign nationals can move to the United States.

    The bill from Cotton and Perdue, known as the RAISE Act, would end the practice of prioritizing green cards for adult children and extended family of people already in the U.S., discontinue an immigration lottery program and limit the number of refugees to be accepted into the U.S. to only 50,000."

  23. Oh, look at the bag of slime Trump picked as a new bank regulator. You guessed. Mnuchin's pal in robosigning people out of their homes.

    "President Donald Trump’s choice to lead a key bank regulation agency spent the first half of this decade running a bank that illegally foreclosed on hundreds of thousands of Americans, often using forged and fraudulent documents."

    "As the head of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Otting would be in charge of regulating the nation’s approximately 1,000 banks and bank subsidiaries. The office already has a history of lax enforcement standards and was chided for failing to step in during the foreclosure crisis to prevent the kinds of abuses engaged in by banks like OneWest."

    "Otting, who would be the first former bank executive to lead the office in nearly a century, hinted in his confirmation hearing that he would lean toward more deregulation of banking and insurance if confirmed."

    What a surprise. I'm shocked, I tell you, shocked.

      Trump has literally stuffed his administration with the worst people possible. Not one of his appointees cares at all about the American people as a whole. It's all about stealing as much as they can as soon as they can. And the GOP in Congress is allowing it to happen.

    By A More Than 2-1 Margin, Americans Are Embarrassed To Have Trump As President

    In a Quinnipiac University Poll that is loaded with bad news for Trump, the worst news is that Trump has gone from failed president to national embarrassment.

    The Quinnipiac University Poll found, “American voters say 54 – 26 percent that they are embarrassed rather than proud to have Trump as president. Voters say 57 – 40 percent he is abusing the powers of his office and say 60 – 36 percent that he believes he is above the law.”

    As polarized as the polling was during the Obama years, and as unpopular as George W. Bush was, neither of the two previous presidents were considered embarrassments by voters. The worst thing that can happen to a politician is that they are not taken seriously.
