Thank you HRC for your new book.  It reminded me to go back to Youtube & look at the Election Night 2016 videos.   There are many excellent compilation videos of how the different news channels covered the night.  CNN, Fox, PBS, etc.    Nothing like a slow train wreck for entertainment!

President Trump Now Says That Wasn’t Him on Access Hollywood Tape

 

Like [alleged sexual predator] Roy Moore, Trump has been accused of sexual assault by several women, and like Moore, he has refused to budge an inch on the question of his innocence.

 

As The Times reveals, though, Trump has gone way beyond mere denials. He has taken to contesting objective reality itself:

 

 

But something deeper has been consuming Mr. Trump. He sees the calls for Mr. Moore to step aside as a version of the response to the now-famous “Access Hollywood” tape, in which he boasted about grabbing women’s genitalia, and the flood of groping accusations against him that followed soon after. He suggested to a senator earlier this year that it was not authentic, and repeated that claim to an adviser more recently. (In the hours after it was revealed in October 2016, Mr. Trump acknowledged that the voice was his, and he apologized.)

 

 

So now, Trump not only is insisting that the lies he spouts all day are true, but also has created a new set of facts that contradicts the ones he has already acknowledged.

Almost like some set of alternative facts.

Wow. When you look at the above twitter statement and think it could not possibly be real, you decide to check through other sources as it couldn't possibly be, and you find out it is....

A small win by the US media against the Putinesque war being waged by the political right-wing against America

 

https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/a-woman-approached-the-post-with-dramatic--and-false--tale-about-roy-moore-sje-appears-to-be-part-of-undercover-sting-operation/2017/11/27/0c2e335a-cfb6-11e7-9d3a-bcbe2af58c3a_story.html?utm_term=.938112f15695

 

(Sorry it's behind a soft paywall)

 

TL:DR version:

 

Woman approaches WP claiming to have damaging information against Roy Moore - who's been accused of child molestation, but who Trump endorses.

 

WP realise that she's attempting a sting operation to discredit them.

 

They do their work to disclose she's working for a pack of right-wing lying thugs "Project Veritas" - headed by James O'Keefe

 

The Trump foundation donated money to Project Veritas.

And here is the Project Veritas "Exposé"



 

Not sure this is showing the critique they think it’s showing. It paints a picture of investigative journalism trying to be fair & in-depth, countered with an editorial side which is less impartial. Far from the "Fake News" narrative that Trump and his supporters like to claim.

 


What it does highlight, however, is that editorials should be taken as a point of view, and not statement of fact. This applies to all publications, not just the ones they single out. Perhaps this isn’t the common knowledge I thought it was.

Just when you think he couldn't get any worse, Trump retweets far-right group's anti-Muslim videos, with at least one of them already revealed to be fake. But as it turns out, the offical White House stance on that is that it doesn't matter.

Trump's power to launch nuclear strike under scrutiny

 

For the first time in more than 40 years, the US Congress is examining the president's authority to launch a nuclear attack.
No Trump administration officials are testifying before the hearing, which is examining the nuclear command and control structure that has served all US presidents.

 


"We are concerned that the president is so unstable, is so volatile, has a decision-making process that is so quixotic, that he might order a nuclear-weapons strike that is wildly out of step with US national-security interests," said Senator Murphy [Dem], explaining the reason for the public hearing.

Mr President is choosing some interesting 'backdrops' for his appearances.    Firstly, at the ceremony to honour WWII Navajo code talkers he had a portrait of Andrew Jackson right behind him.     And when giving a speech about North Korea there is a table with a statue of a raging bull surrounded by a pack of wild dogs.

 

Hardly a coincidence.   Bet his supporters love it though.

Word for the day is "confabulation" (psychiatry).

 

There's no way any sane person in Trump's position could get away with abusing basically everybody, telling mistruths and outright lies, without something being seriously wrong between his ears.  He probably doesn't realise...

 

As unwise as it may be for psychiatrists to diagnose public figures remotely, Trump is a serious danger to the world - something needs to be done.

 

His garbled speech, memory lapses, inappropriate behaviour - and very clearly confabulation - has to be dementia. His supporters need to stop making excuses for him.  Reagan wasn't this bad.
