Trump & Libel

Not sure if you had a chance to watch Trump’s speech yesterday (about 30 minutes of blubbering) but you can find it somewhere.

During his rant he mentions twice to Thune and Rounds that we need better libel laws so people like the president can sue over ‘fake news’. I know that it is difficult for sitting politicians to sue but former Senator Larry Pressler successfully won a suit over libel in 1998 after a book accused him of being gay.

I guess what I would tell Trump is, go for it. If the news isn’t telling the truth, please by all means, prove it in a court of law. The problem is, I don’t think our Liar in Chief stands a snowball chance in Hell of winning a libel case. It requires you to offer evidence and proof what is being reported is untruthful.

BRADY MALLORY INTERVIEWS TRUMP

I was actually pretty impressed with Mallory’s eight minute interview. He hammered Trump on crop tariff’s and Obama’s recent comments. While Trump blew a lot of smoke (like saying the tariffs will help the farmers in the long run), Brady did a great job of standing his ground. BRAVO.

Why is the local media being mysteriously quiet about Trump’s visit?

I’d Rather see this guy

Let’s face it, we all know the local media has talked to people attending the event (as I have). So why are they not telling us the location and time?

I will tell you that the location is no longer some gigantic secret. Just drive past the convention center and you will see noticeable traffic diversions. But we all kind of figured that.

What about the time? Well usually with a presidential visit, those things are always up in the air anyway, HA! Literally. But attendees were given a time to ‘be there’. As with most presidential visits they will have to stand around for a long time with their fingers up their butt waiting. Let’s just say it’s between 1 PM and 4 PM.

I also have been told (this is from only one source, so don’t wet your pants) that Noem sold 50, $5,000 tickets. This was the supposed limit, with a 100 people requesting). I have NOT heard how many people are showing up for the trailer park rate of $500.

As you know, I could care less about DC politics. It’s broke as F’ck and we all know the most valuable decisions are made locally when it comes to our lives, taxes, etc. A presidential visit to me doesn’t mean much.

But some have to wonder why our local media is being such chicken sh*ts about telling us the details of the President’s visit?

Oh, that’s right, media revenue. And we know Noem has a boatload of money (and even more tomorrow). We wouldn’t want to spoil tomorrow’s circus? Would we?

The Winners always Win, not because they are winners, but because they have more money. And when you hear that loud sucking sound tomorrow afternoon by the Convention Center, it’s not the elite dropping coin to see Trump, it’s our local media.

Oh, and if you want an alternative to the sh*t show, Tim Bjorkman is handing out FREE food at Terrace Park after 5 PM on Friday. Please Tim, no chili or hotdogs (unless it’s chili hot dogs).

Active Measures Documentary

This just came out on Friday. It is amazing. If you think Trump isn’t tied to Putin, you are smoking some serious stuff.

SD Delegation sends Trump 2nd letter; this time with an Applebees giftcard

Well you know what they say, you catch more bees with honey. Senator Thune said this about the 2nd attempt to address the trade war, “We know that the president likes to eat crappy food, so we thought this would be a great follow-up letter.”

I asked Thune since he was 3rd in line for GOP leadership in Washington couldn’t he just pick up the phone and call Trump?

Thune seemed confused and said, “Interview over.”

It’s Real, and it is sad

You know what is really disgusting?

A foul mouth red head, but disgusting?

Okay, we have all heard about Griffin. I agree, she should not have done what she did, and should have treated a sitting president better. Personally, I think Griffin is funny, but you have to be into gay men humor, which is really her style. If you are a gay man or have male gay friends, you get it. If you are an ultra conservative that thinks gays are sinners, well, I get why you don’t understand her.

To be honest, I really didn’t get her joke about Trump. Was I disgusted? A little, but more bewildered then anything. It wasn’t funny, and really wasn’t her style.

But something about this controversy really ticked me off. The word people used over and over again was ‘disgusting’. And I get it.

But do you know what is truly disgusting? A presidential candidate who brags about grabbing women’s vaginas, calls them pigs, calls his opponent a ‘Nasty Women’ etc. etc. Everyone thought that was just fine. Well it wasn’t, it was truly ‘disgusting’. Those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.

Now hopefully Griffin goes back to what she is good at, and we can only wish our president would go back to his previous job to, or better yet, just go away.

The American Dream (H/T – KH & RH)

One of my FB posted this last night and I asked if I could post it. Her son did this in Art Class about the American Dream.

Mayor Huether compares himself to Trump

Whadda I tell you!

Mike said on the B-N-B show this morning that he understands why Trump gets frustrated with the press when they spread BS.

Oh the irony.

Fact checkers determined that during the campaign, 70% of what Trump said was pure BS. Let’s talk about how frustrating it is to listen to politicians spread it.
