No wonder Donald Trump has been pissy at Fox news lately, they are now fact checking him in real time.

President Donald Trump’s favorite news network not only cut into his speech on Monday, but it also fact-checked him on live television.

Trump on Monday attempted to tout his administration’s environmental record, but Fox News host Shepard Smith interrupted to say those policies have been “widely criticized by environmentalists and academics.”

The Fox News host cited a New York Times report that found that more than 80 environmental rules and regulations have been repealed and/or rolled back, including multiple regulations regarding drilling, air pollution and wildlife.

Though Trump has frequently touted the glowing coverage he’s received from Fox News hosts such as Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson and is known to be a fan of the “Fox & Friends” morning show, he has lately complained about some of the network’s other figures, including Smith.

Over the weekend, Trump griped that watching Fox News is “worse than watching low ratings Fake News CNN” and MSNBC, then later took at dig at Smith for hosting “by far their lowest rated show.”

As HuffPo points out Smith’s show is actually a ratings winner. 

If this is the start of a trend and Fox News is starting to break with Donald Trump that is exceptionally bad news for the wannabe dictator. 

Just like Adolph Hitler would have been lost without Joseph Goebbels so to will Trump be lost without his Fox News propaganda machine. 

In short, he will not only lose in 2020, but he will lose “bigly.”

    Question for people, who have kids, here: If you chose to go the patriarchal route, what are ways you instilled pride for your kids’ mother’s side of the family? how did you convey to them they are not just their patriarchally given last name? They are 50% each. Looking at all the ways families handled this.

    Oh those fickle right wingers…🤗

    Love affair is over!

    President Donald Trump’s July Fourth “Salute to America” was supposed to be a patriotic extravaganza, complete with military tanks, to affirm the country’s greatness under his leadership.

    But many within his once-loyal cadre of far-right extremists, racist trolls and white nationalists who latched onto his campaign under the banner of the “alt-right” in 2016 were looking the other way. Online forums home to the alt-right, such as 4chan and 8chan, were filled with chatter about Disney’s decision to cast a black actress as Ariel in the upcoming live-action version of “The Little Mermaid.” Discussions around “Salute to America” were decidedly muted.

    Extremism experts say their apparent lack of interest in Trump is partly because the heyday of the “alt-right” as a coordinated bloc is over —

    Liar 🤥

    Trump Lied to the Supreme Court, and Four Justices Don’t Care

    The White House insisted allegations that it wanted to add a citizenship question to the survey for political reasons were conspiracy theories, right up until the moment the president confirmed them.

      “Ideally, the executive branch lying to the public and the other branches of government would hold certain consequences. But Democrats in Congress are too frightened and weak to properly discharge their oversight duties.”

      TRUTH.

    Next up, donnie will have to create his own network on cable, now that he lost the lawsuit about blocking people on twitter, I hope the liberals flood his twitter feed with jokes, criticism as well as fact checking. It will drive him nuts since he has used twitter to avoid having to read responses to his crazy rants.

    Rachel Maddow Reveals Sexual Assault Incident Involving A Child At One Of Trump’s Migrant Camps

    A 15-year-old girl from Honduras described a large, bearded officer putting his hands inside her bra, pulling down her underwear and groping her as part of what was meant to be a routine pat down in front of other immigrants and officers.

    The girl said “she felt embarrassed as the officer was speaking in English to other officers and laughing” during the entire process, according to a report of her account.

      The year was 1992 and the event was a “calendar girl” competition, something that George Houraney, a Florida-based businessman who ran American Dream Enterprise, had organized at Mr. Trump’s request.
      “I arranged to have some contestants fly in,” Mr. Houraney recalled in an interview on Monday. “At the very first party, I said, ‘Who’s coming tonight? I have 28 girls coming.’ It was him and Epstein.”
      “Trump downplayed his relationship to Epstein. He said he knew him “like everybody else in Palm Beach knew him … he was a fixture in Palm Beach.”

      “(Houraney and his girlfriend Jill Harth have accused Trump of sexual abuse of Harth).”

      Trump lost a major Twitter fight Tuesday when a federal appeals court said that his daily musings and pronouncements were overwhelmingly official in nature and that he violated the First Amendment whenever he blocked a critic to silence a viewpoint.

      The effect of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision is likely to reverberate throughout politics after the Manhattan court warned that any elected official using a social media account “for all manner of official purposes” and then excluding critics violates free speech.

    AURORA, Colo.”Off-duty officer guns down black man after children playing with fireworks startle his dog”
    “An off-duty corrections officer in Aurora, Colorado has been accused of killing another man over an argument about fireworks.

    According to an affidavit obtained by KDVR, Scott Mathews and his girlfriend, Katherine O’Neal, became upset with a 14-year-old boy and a 9-year-old girl on the Fourth of July. The couple complained that fireworks had startled their small dog. Both Mathews and O’Neal work for the state Department of Corrections and were armed during the confrontation.

    The affidavit states that Mathews head-butted Shamira Cotton, the mother of the children. O’Neal admitted drawing her gun but insisted that she did not point it at anyone.

    When Cotton’s boyfriend, Jaharie Wheeler, came out of his apartment, he found his girlfriend bleeding, the affidavit said.
    Wheeler was then accused of throwing a punch at Mathews before the corrections officer pulled his gun and allegedly shot the man in the chest.

    Mathews was taken into custody. Charges are expected to be announced on Wednesday. He is being held on $100,000 bond.

    — An Independence Day dispute over fireworks led to a fatal shooting in Aurora on Thursday.

    According to the arrest affidavit, a man and woman who work for the Department of Corrections became upset when a 14-year-old boy, 9-year-old girl and their mother began lighting fireworks at an apartment complex at 16498 E. Alameda Pl.

    Scott Mathews and his girlfriend, Katherine O’Neal, argued with the group, saying that the fireworks scared their dog. Both were armed with handguns when they confronted the woman and her children.

    Throughout the course of the argument, O’Neal admitted to drawing her gun but said that she didn’t point it at anyone, the affidavit states.

    At one point, Mathews allegedly headbutted the children’s mother, Shamira Cotton, and pointed his gun at her while yelling profanities, she told police. Cotton admitted to throwing her drink at Mathews during the encounter.

    Cotton’s boyfriend, Jaharie Wheeler, came out of his apartment to find his girlfriend bleeding, according to the affidavit.

    The two men began arguing and the affidavit said that Wheeler threw a punch at the DOC officer before Mathews drew his gun on the man and shot him in the chest, killing him.

    Mathews was taken into custody the following day; his bond is set at $100,000 and a hearing to file charges is set for Wednesday.”
