Nah I was joking. Trump loves Muslims and can't wait to invite lots of them over for a party.

You have no proof he hates muslims. He banned few nations which is absurd but if he hated muslims he would surely ban over 40 plus countries that are Muslim countries ?

Even Fox News is calling him out.

I watched the press conference just now and it was the usual shitshow. He's loopy and completely out of his depth.

He even asked a black reporter to set up a meeting for him with the Congressional Black Caucus :lol:

BTW, the CBC already tried to get a meeting with him:

You're right, he only tried to ban people from Muslim countries and it's not like he only banned Muslims from those nations and made an exception for people with "minority religions" from those countries is it?

And I guess in the run up to the election he never said there would be a complete shutdown of Muslims entering the US?

I am sure he loves you all.

The little back and forth between Trump and John Sopel (BBC Politicial Correspondent) made me chuckle. In his nightly reports John Sopel couldn't show his disdain for Trump more if he tried, so I'm not surprised at Trump's remark. As a BBC correspondent you'd think he'd at least try and be balanced FFS. :lol:

Yep! Listened to it yesterday :toot:

Poor Dan seems utterly depressed, he wanted an outsider candidate for so long and he gets Trump, the embodiment of everything he dislikes :lol:

Is he not loving the shitstorm that seems to permanently shroud the White House though? Impeachment looks like a solid possibility right now - especially given how scandal-prone Trump is.

Shep's ways called out the bullshit. I have no idea what he's doing at Fox News. He's probably the only genuine journalist there.

This trump live stream going on now...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPAo_J8gotQ

:lol: :lol:

Someone asked him why he labels news he doesn't like "Fake News" instead of just saying it's "Bad News", and he said "Yeah, I know, the reason I do that is because I know what the story should be." :lol:

Some other choice quotes from people watching the stream:

Canadians f-ed after we kick em out all the mexicans and moviestars are moving there BYE- BYE!


INFOWARS tells the truth!!

I will take great pleasure in watching the next Democratic administration very publicly reinstating all the gooseberry fool they're undoing.

So the government put out a survey looking for opinions on the state of the media. If you can make it through the double negatives and leading questions, you too can wonder who the strawberry float will take the results of this blatantly biased survey seriously.

Trump's war on the media is scarily close to Nazi Germany in 1933 :dread:

More hints Murdoch might been thinking he's backed the wrong Titanic/Horse (or maybe he just wants to push Pence in now)

The depressing thing for me is that Trump is actually right about the mainstream media, it's just that coming from him nobody takes it seriously. Nearly every story I read these days from a mainstream news site requires you to really look into it and do your own fact checking because chances are there will be a level of bullshit creating a slanted narrative.

Trump isn't trying to raise journalist standards, he simply calls everything he doesn't like fake.

Slant all you want, facts are facts, only a couple of outlets aren't reporting facts (infowars, breitbart).
