Actually, what it means is, "hey Jim, did you just plagiarize (sic) someone else's work?".  But I understand it's difficult for those with reading challenges to understand, even if it was typed real slow just for them.  But thanks for asking......


My pleasure. I'm always happy to try to get wandering posters back on topic.  

 

So, what do you think about the NBC report?  What do you think of Jim plagiarizing someone else's work?  Rather common for Conservatives, isn't it?  Melania, Cotton, Crowley, etc.

Secretary of Defense James Mattis discredited a questionable NBC report Wednesday that claimed President Donald Trump demanded a tenfold increase in the size of the nuclear arsenal.

 

“Recent reports that the President called for an increase in the U.S. nuclear arsenal are absolutely false,” Mattis said in a statement. “This kind of erroneous reporting is irresponsible.”

 

The NBC report suggested that Trump’s surprising request caused Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to call the president a “moron,” part of another report which both the secretary of state and the president have criticized for inaccuracies.

 

Trump rejected Wednesday’s report as fake news, calling NBC out on Twitter and putting them on the same level as CNN, which the president has repeatedly attacked for its false reporting.

 

Trump called NBC’s style of reporting and journalism “disgusting” when speaking to reporters Wednesday.

 

“It is frankly disgusting the press is able to write whatever it wants to write,” he said, adding that a number of outlets are writing stories based on sources that simply do not exist.

 

Trump explained that, while he expects the U.S. to maintain top-notch nuclear capabilities, he believes that a substantial tenfold increase in the size of the nuclear arsenal would be excessive and unnecessary.

 

BY Ryan Pickrell


"President Donald Trump said he wanted what amounted to a nearly tenfold increase in the U.S. nuclear arsenal during a gathering this past summer of the nation’s highest-ranking national security leaders, according to three officials who were in the room."

 

Trump Wanted Tenfold Increase in Nuclear Arsenal, Surprising Military

 

So, Jim's source for the OP article is saying that "3 of trump's highest-ranking national security leaders" lied about what trump said.  Wouldn't surprise me that his administration lies....wouldn't be the first time now, would it?


So, that is based on the assumption that NBC told the truth. How did you manage to come to that conclusion?


NBC has credibility, trump does not.  Wouldn't be the first time someone in his administration lied to cover for his idiocy.


And Mattis? Is he now a liar (your favorite word)?

It has now become a habit for that poster to leave off any attribution for a verbatim article; but it is done for good cause.

 

In this case, it was the DAILY CALLER, a media outlet that the distinguished SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER has said, "Has a WHITE NATIONALIST PROBLEM".

 

After all, it was the DAILY CALLER that ran several articles by JASON KESSLER, a known WHITE SUPREMACIST, and was actually the guy that organized the Charlottesville WHITE SUPREMACIST rally.

 

@Centristsin2010, knowing that, wouldn't you keep the original media outlet a secret too?????????


Does that mean that you think that NBC told the truth? Or are you just interested in your normal obsession - sources?

 

And SPLC - "distinguished", surely you jest. They are an extreme left-wing racist organization.

Wow, three people say Trump made the comment. Seems......interesting. 

 

Three officials who were in the room during the meeting told NBC News that the president's comments came after he viewed a briefing slide charting the reduction of the nation's nuclear weapons since the late 1960s.


You are assuming that NBC told the truth and Mattis lied - why?

So what, so is fake news, whatever you want to say. at this point, any  "fake news"  is simply the result of seeing so many "fake news"  repeated and initiated by Trump.

So, "fake news" is now the norm. and who is to blame for starting the whole thing?
