    He simply was not interested in lies prior to Trump becoming our president. He paid so little attention he knows of none. And he voted for Hillary. He told us that.

    So, if Trump is telling a lie -- he has told over 4,250 of them since taking office -- reporters are just supposed to accept his lies, according to you. That is a bizarre position to take. How are Americans supposed to find out the truth? From other politicians? Are you serious?

    Or, as a Trump supporter, you don't want Americans to know the truth.

    You don't believe that B.S. Why are you making yourself look foolish?

    Of course. Challenging the president is the job of the political opposition. In other words, the very people ELECTED to do so. Not an unelected press.

    Hillary, yup, and I am proud of that.

    However, those who voted Trump are not so proud. Although they won't admit it, most are ashamed of their vote and they know they made a mistake. Like you, Robert, they can't defend Trump is he so bad.

    The irony is, the last person Trump's fans want to talk about is Trump. Some respond to articles critical of Trump, but only to attack the writers of the criticism or to change the subject, like you, Robert, your favorite tactic. I know this from personal experience.

    Look at the threads Trump's fans start or are interested in. Currently, on the front page of PF there is not one OP about Trump from his fans.

    His fans can't defend Trump from criticism and they don't want to discuss him. What does that tell you? It tells you they are ashamed of their vote for him.

    What you do amounts to seeing his favorite football team get their balls beat off. i don't blame you for refusing to say you supported Hillary for months on end.

    You for instance never allow us space. When you post you sling out taunts and insults instantly. As above you try to allege we won't defend Trump.

    I am happier with my vote for Trump than you can be with your vote for the woman loser. No doubt you also voted for the black malcontent who bowed to kings of other lands.

    notice you do not defend Obama since you understand how much he stinks. And Hillary ... are you truly happy she managed to refuse to keep our men in Bengazi safe?

    Robert, that is ludicrous.

    Take your replies for example. They are either about me, not the issues raised, or you are changing the subject with some off-the-wall topic.

    Another example, your buddies want nothing to do with this statement because they know it is true, including you.

    Look at the threads Trump's fans start or are interested in. Currently, on the front page of PF there is not one OP about Trump from his fans.

    And that is why i and perhaps most of the rest of us do not like talking to you.

    And yet we see it, and you do not. Do you call your copy and paste stuff composed by your Democrat buddies to be news?

    They informed us that Kirstjen Nielsen was departing the Trump admin. Widely touted. She works there now. Where is your so called informed proof. The Democrats control most of the media that you persist in using. Then you demand we attack Trump. Well that is no fun.

    "We have to practice decorum" said President Trump. Best joke I've heard in quite a while.

    You will never get Acosta to practice decorum. His only times are in talking to Democrats.Listen to him accuse all the time. On this forum, such actions can and do get posters banned. There are rules against doing what Acosta does.

    It should be a law that the president has no authority to remove reporters from the whitehouse or shut down press access, unless there is illegal activities being committed by the reporters.

    Trump is basically implying that any reporters who report anything that makes him look bad is gonna be banned. He wants to establish his own person press corps filled with no one but Fox News and other pro-Trump media.

    Presidents have been doing even worse to reporters for generations. FDR used to have his Secret Service go and forcibly take the camera film from anyone suspected of photographing him in a wheelchair.

    Why didn't you just start a NEW Thread?

    Instead of NECROing some ANCIENT BS From 4 Months Ago?

    PF really needs to follow-up on discussions about the ridiculous Necroing of Ancient Threads.

    Necroing Ancient Threads screws up the flow of the forum.
