It didn't help that Trump and his admin contradicted each other or themselves, changed the story from day to day, lied repeatedly, etc. And to think Trump hasn't been in a hurry to get a new Communications director (as if he'd listen to them anyway).
Coordinating lies in the Trump administration is a full time job nowadays.

Grow up Davy. We don't need your juvenile rants.

Now, back to what the adults were talking about. The fallout from the WH lying epidemic that went into overdrive recently:

John, it appears there's already a hater in the comments section, with more I feel sure to follow. One of the main things that Trump and his support group cannot stand is the truth. I have not decided on which reason there is that could cause such a situation, however I am sure there are several that could be the causes for their beliefs and actions. Another enjoyable read!

Hmmm TT, I guess either the comment was deleted or I have a filter on the objectionable comment.

That being said, great column John. I have always valued the balance the NY Times deals with daily when reporting the news around the world. Their sources are incredible, even if there are occasional flaws. But when called out, they police themselves and right the wrong, something we often don't see in other publications or organizations.
...
Miller is definitely becoming one of the worst advisers to Trump on immigration policy. His history of racism and bigotry going as far back as high school is well known and documented. He wears that history as a badge of honor among the hard right. But it has not served the president well on three occasions now and will continue to be a boat anchor for this president if he so chooses to continue to heed young Miller's bad advice.
...
Of course, our own alt right chorus will blast this column as they usually do, driving up the click rate for the D-G. I don't mind that a bit as it keeps revenue flowing for the publication.

I know this is tough to say, with a lot of repercussions, but Fox news should really be shut down. Or have some kind of guidelines they have to meet in order to air. A Democracy can't have a State Run Tv channel brain washing the old and uneducated. It is bad for our country. Or they should have a Disclaimer before each show airs. Like "The following program includes falsehoods, make believe and strong opinion that may or may not be based on any facts or reality". Just off the top of my head. But something like that. At least that way the brainwashed could at least have a chance to break away. Like a cigarette disclaimer.
This is why the "right" doesn't seem to understand any issue, or believe the President is lying (every single day!). They never see it or hear it. It's like they are the NK people or the Russians that think Putin is doing a great job. They are simply brainwashed. You can still be conservative and not be brainwashed.
Lou Dobbs called Trey Gowdy the Deep State the other day. Yeah. Trey Gowdy. I rest my case.

Here I was expecting John Brummett to comment on how shocked he was that Donald Trump bravely entered enemy territory yesterday by going to Duluth Minnesota.
Minnesota hasn't voted Republican since 1972 and Duluth went for Hillary by a 2-1 margin over Trump.

Yet, our brave president entered " hostile territory", drew a large crowd, and drew loud applause when he explained his positions.

On second thought, I am not surprised John Brummett never commented on it.
At least John Brummett is cutting back on that term " second place president ".

Brummett says "you hold the parents and kids for civil processing" but 90 percent of them don’t show up for their immigration hearings. If you want open borders just say it, why engaged in enforcement theater. Asylum-seeking parents who go through ports of entry were not separated from children. If you come to a bridge, entry point your not going to be prosecuted, but if you come over the river and then find immigration or are caught by immigration, you will be prosecuted.
So what does the democrats and their partners in the media want?
Is it just talking points till after the election.

Everyone at the Duluth rally was a paid actor. It’s true.

The New York Times is the world's best newspaper......BWHAAAAHAAAHAAAHAAAAAAAA... BWHAAAAHHAAAAABAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Hey Lib Bedwetters - In case you missed it, President Trump just ended the Obama era policy of "catch and release" of illegal aliens. Winning NEVER grows old.
.
And 3rdWorld advocates for Nazi style censorship. The mask is falling and falling fast.

Hey DoubleBlind - Did they receive the SAG minimum? I heard they received bonus pay for wearing a MAGA hat, overalls, and were barefoot. I also heard the 2,000 or so that couldn't get inside the venue received half wages and a moon pie and RC cola. Can you verify if this is true?

They agreed to do it in exchange for free dental care, except they’re all toothless. I think they were scammed.
