easyed598:  What the Republicans are tired of is the fake news that comes out almost every day from the Trump hating media

 

 

 

Why keep saying this when it should be easy enough to prove MSM news is fake by providing the "true" facts?  If you can't do this, then people see it as simply whining about news you don't like. It's up to you to prove it's fake news.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Too much to list all ,but here is a small historical sample-25 Fake News Stories From The Mainstream Media - IVN.us

Over here on the "right'' coast this past weekend  ... Sailfish tornament broke a record with over 700 sailfish landed. One boat hooked up 70 and landed 34. Ran out of flags. 

 

Amazing year so far! 

 

Bloody decks and may the water stay below your feet.

Heading out and then back...

 

Will be bottom fishing on various reefs til Thursday.  Red snapper, grouper.  Searching for cobia and always AJ.

 

Never caught a Wahoo, it would be great to find them on this trip!

 

Keep up the good fight!

Completely agree. I am so tired of the superficial, one-dimensional news coverage that most networks provide. I’ve gone mostly to foreign news outlets. Although CNN International is good. We can’t get the broadcast here, but we can access their website. What does that say about their business model? CNN can be garbage but what they broadcast to International English speakers is far superior.  

 

And NPR.

Now...  getting use to it is troubling, but not in the way you think. 

 

Using football as an analogy.... getting usta something is exactly what an offensive coach doesn't want to happen. Chaos as you call it,  is actually part and parcel of president Trump's strategy. So when the defense is "getting" it we might not win as much. Watching president Trump is like watch the NE patriots play and he's not tired of winning.

 

Hmmmm.... I'll call him and let him know you're stealing his plays.
