I'm sure you ALL consider them fake news. Cost one WP report his life telling the truth. But who cares about a fake news reporter being bone sawed to death while still alive, or the hard truth.
that's not true. More fake news.

He was not a reporter - he was an opinion columnist.

That's not "news". Did you even read his last column? (about the need for freedom of the press over there)

Here it is... tell me what you think of it...

Regardless of whom that is aimed at, are you serious?

I guess I missed the indoctrination lectures where this forum was designed to solve world peace and be politically correct 100% of the time. I come here to read linked articles, hear what people have to say and laugh at the back and forth, because none of what is said here actually means diddly squat.

Lighten up Francis!

Ocasio-Cortez warns Trump Jr. about subpoena power in response to meme

Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) took to Twitter on Friday to remind Donald Trump Jr. that Congress "will have subpoena power in a month" after he shared a meme implying that the socialism leads to people eating dogs.

In a photo posted to Trump Jr.'s Instagram account Thursday, Ocasio-Cortez and President Donald Trump are shown as though they were debating each other, with the Democratic rising star asking, "Why are you afraid of a socialist economy?" and the president replying, "Because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them." The caption "It's funny cuz its true!!!" accompanied Trump Jr.'s post, which garnered more than 66,000 likes as of Friday afternoon.


But by that time, the Nuyorican had seen the viral meme — and had a comeback ready.

"I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up," Ocasio-Cortez wrote. "Please, keep it coming Jr - it’s definitely a 'very, very large brain' idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month."


Ocasio-Cortez added later Friday that her tweet was not intended to be a threat.

"I don’t have power to subpoena anybody," she wrote in a follow-up tweet. "Congress as a body, GOP included, has the power. No indiv. member can issue a subpoena unless they are a Chair (which, as a freshman, I can assure you I will not be). Also must be under purview."

Trump Jr. also retweeted several posts criticizing Ocasio-Cortez for her comments, calling her "incompetent" and questioning her emotional stability.

The reference to canine consumption is a long-running stereotype of people living in socialist countries and is often used to assert that socialist economic policy would wreck the economy. Although the ideals of democratic socialism have been on the rise since Ocasio-Cortez's primary victory in June over incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley, policies like universal health care and the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement are unlikely to be enacted with Republicans in control of the White House and the Senate and with a conservative-leaning Supreme Court.

Opponents of socialist economic policy have also argued that it would cause the federal deficit to balloon.

During the midterm campaign, Trump often said Democrats would turn the country into Venezuela, a country mired in a political crisis after years of corruption and mismanagement from its leftist government. Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described democratic socialist, seemed at least unperturbed by the attacks from the White House circle.

"Have fun!" she told Trump Jr., alluding to the potential of a subpoena.

Emphasis added. I like the "very, very, large brain idea" comment. She's really glib.

"She also does occasionally screw up, which gives conservatives ammo, but those articles attacking her ultimately end up elevating her profile. It's a funny sort of a cycle: The more she's attacked the more famous she is, the more worthy she is of attack.

Just imagine what will happen when she runs for president."

I gave you the benefit of the doubt and googled “trump 6400 lies wapo “ I was expecting to see a list of 6400 supposed lies. I quit reading when the first thing I saw was “no collusion” listed 157 times. Here’s your chance pokey, show me some collusion! Right now! Show me! We were promised collusion and apparently you know where it is since you’re claiming that saying “no collusion “ is a lie. Put up or shut up....
so the list of Trump lies was a lie? Who does that make a liar?

Occasionally screw up?

That's all that she is famous for... being stupid. How did that work out for Dan Quail?

If she runs, ever, it will be a total S*** show. I'm not sure how much free stuff can be promised but she will try to promise it all.
