LMFAO.....I am well aware of what this thread is about and I certainly do not need telling by you.

So here we are, some of you having issues and trying to paint a picture of Trump lying, may be he did tell a porker yesterday, but I am not having you or anybody else saying it is not okay to highlight the hypocrisy going on here regarding former Presidents, when it came to them telling Alternative facts.

I'm confused but that's not hard. What was wrong with what Hugh posted? Hugh's not trying to benchmark Trump with previous presidents - and it's probably too early to do that - but pointing out some incorrect information that Trump is stating as fact.

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

Yeah don't see how Hugh is being hypocritical. This tactic of shutting down criticism with accusations of hypocrisy if they haven't criticised someone else. There will always be someone else to condemn. I mean I didn't see anyone here have a go at Nixon?

Most politicians lie no matter what political persuasion they are and it has been happening long before even l was born.

Now you're talking like a politician and using obfuscation.

If there were 2,000 murders last year and 2,500 this year then the rate has gone up and has nothing to do with per person. That is the public perception, deal with it instead of hiding behind statistics.

This is right... All politicians never tell it as is it, distort the truth, bend it for their own purposes.

So no there is nothing wrong with Hugh highlighting that Trump could be lying but the term 'Alternative Facts', has history in the White House by former Presidents of the United States. But the way it is being put across here, because Trump may be doing it too, it makes him extra bad....

If there were 2,000 murders last year and 2,500 this year then we do not know what the murder rate is as we do not know what the population was this year and last year.
Murder rates are calculated per 100,000 people. Please try to understand the issue before criticising people.

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

I don't care how the authorities calculate the murder rate, I am talking about public perception.

Joe Public looks at the number not the statistics. Trump could well be looking at it the same way IDK.

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

Well, since the number of US troops in Afghanistan was reduced from 100,000 in 2010 to 8,400 in 2016, I would call that "bringing more of our troops home to their families".

http://www.militarytimes.com/story/m...2001/86755782/

YMMV

And please accept my apologies for calling Trump's statements 'alternative facts' - I should have just called them lies...

We all know politicians lie or exaggerate the truth but Trump isn't a politician and he was elected on a platform of telling the truth and 'telling it how it is' his track record so far is not good

In your opinion.

And for the record, he is now a Politician, being the President of the United States.

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

Yemen Withdraws Permission for U.S. Antiterror Ground Missions

Now let me get this right. The military wanted to carry out this raid but Obama wouldn't sanction it preferring to leave it up to Trump.

Trump said OK as the military had planned it all and (presumably) made the decision based on what the military had informed him.

The operation went pear shaped and it's Trump's fault?

WTF.

Not my opinion Mick ,Trump made the statement himself

Quote:
On "Media Buzz," Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said that he has no campaign strategy other than "honesty" and telling "it like it is."

Howie Kurtz had asked the GOP frontrunner if his strategy was to dominate campaign coverage by saying things he knows would get a huge media reaction, like a plan to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the country.

The billionaire real estate mogul responded: "I have no campaign strategy."

"Do you know what my strategy is? Honesty. I say it like it is...and tell it like it is."

On his comments about Muslims, Trump said "the fact is that there's a problem."

"We're going to solve the problem. The way we're going to solve the problem is to air the problem. I air the problem."

He also said in response to media critics that he's the only candidate who speaks his mind and tells the truth
