Jake Tapper showed how much he hates Trumpers when he unfairly went after Mike Cohen and actually demanded he answer to questions!! What a jerk!!
Why is it that journalists only ask questions to Trump people, and don’t ever ask questions of anyone else?! It’s amazing!!!
I can’t believe Jake Tapper would be so unprofessional as to doubt Michael Cohen saying that Trump has never ever made an inaccurate statement. If he says so, it must be true. Is that what “journalism” is these days?!?! Terrible.
.@jaketapper You're making an ass of yourself on live TV.
El Trumpo is canceling a press conference for a meeting that had been announced as an endorsement by 100 Black Pastors after some said they had been invited but weren’t attending, and others objected to being told they were going to endorse his presidential run.
Clearly all the Black Pastors are plants by the GOP establishment who are trying to destroy the Donald.
Donald Trump has been forced into a humiliating climbdown, cancelling a major campaign event after black church leaders complained that a private meeting was being billed as a public endorsement of the leading Republican presidential candidate.
Journalists had been invited to Trump Tower in New York on Monday to hear 100 African-American evangelical pastors endorse Mr Trump following the meeting.
But the claim prompted a number of angry denials from those involved who said they had simply agreed to hear the candidate set out his position on key issues. Others said they had declined the invitation altogether.
Donald J. Trump will take the next step in his religious outreach effort next week when he announces the endorsement of a group of 100 African-American pastors and religious leaders at his Manhattan headquarters.
The Republican presidential candidate has a private meeting with the group scheduled on Monday before they make their offer of support official, according to his campaign. The endorsement comes as Mr. Trump has faced criticism for stoking racial tension and has seen his support among evangelical Christians start to waver in polls as voters consider Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and Ben Carson.
Apparently this is one of the pastors who objected:
Pastor Mark Burns, You NEVER contacted me or got my permission print my name. I never confirmed my attendance. https://t.co/0aKX5P6bwt
The cherry-picking leftist-leaning media is picking apart every morsel of information about the Colorado shooter like vultures at a carcass, in order to prove he was their wet dream of the perfect right-wing conservative crazy.
But they’re ignoring essential facts about the very-likely-crazy guy.
His former wife, Pamela Ross, 54, who was with him for 16 years or so and once called the police to accuse him of domestic violence, recalled a big man, well-groomed when she knew him, gentle and pleasant most of the time.
He was generally conservative, but not obsessed with politics. He kept guns around the house for personal protection and hunting, and he taught their son to hunt doves, as many Southern fathers do. He believed that abortion was wrong, but it was not something that he spoke about much. “It was never really a topic of discussion,” she said.
“It never, ever, ever, ever crossed my mind,” she said, that he would be capable of such a thing. “My heart just fell to my stomach.”
The younger Mr. Dear was raised as a Baptist, Ms. Ross said in an interview in Goose Creek, S.C., where she now lives. He was religious but not a regular churchgoer, a believer but not one to harp on religion. “He believed wholeheartedly in the Bible,” she said. “That’s what he always said; he read it cover to cover to cover.” But he was not fixated on it, she added.
They prefer, instead, to point at the guy who said he passed out anti-Obama literature, and completely ignore that his ex-wife said he wasn’t terribly interested in politics. You think his ex-wife might have known him slightly better than a stranger?
He seemed to have a separate life online. An online personals ad seeking women in North Carolina interested in bondage and sadomasochistic sex showed a picture that appeared to be Mr. Dear and used an online pseudonym associated with him. The same user also appeared to have turned to online message boards to seek companions in the Asheville area with whom he could smoke marijuana.
On Cannabis.com, the writer said in December 2005: “AIDS, hurricanes, we are in the end times. Accept the LORD JESUS while you can.”
Notice – when they find that a Islamist terrorist acted intemperately before committing an attack, they immediately conclude he wasn’t “really” Muslim because they wouldn’t do that stuff. When a Christian does those things, it’s just evidence that he’s a hypocrite, like all of “those people” are. The double standard against Christians and for Muslims is as plain and obvious as can be… unless you’re a disingenuous liberal who believes their agenda over reality.
It’s clear that the mainstream media is trying to destroy the noble and godly Donald Trump by absolutely smearing him and lying their mendacious lies about this statement that 100 African-American pastors were going to endorse el Trumpo, our savior and lord:
Donald Trump’s campaign says he’ll pick up the endorsement of a coalition of 100 African-American pastors and evangelical leaders Monday in New York City.
The real estate mogul and Republican presidential front-runner’s campaign announced the endorsement — which it said will come after a private meeting at Trump Tower — on Wednesday.
Trump’s campaign scheduled an endorsement event for 1 p.m. ET. It has not released the names of the religious leaders who are set to endorse Trump.
That was on Friday, and they obviously planted the story so that they could do THIS today, the scumbag liars that lie:
Talked w/ a few of the Black pastors who are going to go hang out w/ Trump. Dudes legit have no idea that they are props in his PR stunt.
Bishop McClendon was INVITED to attend Monday’s meeting and his name was used as an invitee, but had made no plans to attend the meeting and indeed will NOT be in attendance. The meeting was presented not as a meeting to endorse but as a meeting to engage in dialogue.
He does believe that African American spiritual leaders should be listening and engaging in dialogue with any candidate who is currently, based on the polls, exhibiting a real potential for occupying the Oval Office.
Bishop McClendon has NOT made up his mind for whom he will vote in the upcoming election and had previously determined that he would not make any decision until after January 2016. He exhorts all serious minded believers to not vote on allegiance to any political party but on the basis of the Judeo-Christian ethic and their spiritually inspired conscience.
“Bishop McClendon”?! That sounds totally made up! What a loser!!
Several members of a group of prominent African American ministers scheduled to meet with Donald Trump Monday are making clear that they have made no commitments to endorse the real estate magnate. Their public declarations of non-endorsement come after a press release from the Trump campaign announced a coalition of 100 African American religious leaders will appear with the real estate mogul shortly after the meeting to endorse him.
Lightweights. All of them. Black Pastors? Trump is all the black pastor I need.
Bishop Corletta Vaughn, the Senior Pastor of the Holy Spirit Cathedral of Faith in Detroit, posted a message on Facebook after she said her inbox was “blowing up with inquiries” after her name was included on a list of pastors meeting Trump.
“Let me be clear,” she wrote. “I was invited to attend a gathering of clergy to listen to Mr. Trump on Monday November 30. I respectively (Sic.) declined as I do not support nor will endorse Donald Trump.”
“I was asked 2 meet with Mr Trump too but I refused because until he learns how to respect people you can’t represent me thru my endorsement,” Bishop Paul Morton, a prominent pastor in Atlanta tweeted on Friday.
Women can’t even be pastors, c’mon!! What a load of BS!!
The Trump campaign did not respond to questions about which ministers will endorse him on Monday.
In fact, of the pastors scheduled to meet with Trump earlier in the day, so far only one, Pastor Darrell Scott, has said he will attend the press conference to endorse Trump.
In an interview with the Daily Beast on Friday, Scott said that he had organized Monday’s meeting between Trump and black clergy, but that his invitation was for them to meet with Trump, not to endorse him.
Of course they don’t have a comment because they don’t talk to losers and haters that’s why!! Not only is Trump (peace be upon him) gonna win the African American vote, but he’s going to win the Daily Beast vote, and he’s going to make Mexico pay for it!! Losers, all of them!!
I bet Trump will show up on Monday with a THOUSAND Black Pastors to endorse him and then the media will look sooooo stupid!! Hahahahah!!
Now there’s absolutely no evidence that any of this animated the crazy shooter, who apparently is a transgender weirdo, but that doesn’t stop Botox Bette from placing the blame squarely on conservatives. Maybe they pulled the skin on her face so tight on her last facelift that they squeezed to death her remaining two semi-functioning brain cells. Heheheh.
James Russell, Dear’s former neighbor in a rural area near Black Mountain, North Carolina, described him as a man who lived in a cabin without electricity or running water and rambled during conversation.
NATO member and U.S. ally Turkey had another shining example of the freedom that their dictator, I mean president, allows to flourish. A human rights activist and lawyer who criticized the government for calling a Turkish separatist organization a “terrorist group” was himself gunned down in the street after a press conference for peace.
An unidentified gunman killed a prominent Kurdish lawyer and rights activist on Saturday in what the pro-Kurdish HDP Party called a “planned assassination,” urging people to take to the streets in protest.
Witnesses said Tahir Elci was shot in the head after making a statement to media in Diyarbakir, the largest city in Turkey’s troubled, mainly Kurdish southeast where he was president of the local bar association. A policeman was also killed in an ensuing exchange of fire.
Elci had been criticized in Turkey for saying the banned Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) was not a terrorist organization, though he had denounced PKK violence. He was facing trial over his comments which had infuriated state prosecutors.
Amazingly, Erdogan is actually blaming the group that Elci was defending, the PKK, with the shooting.
“Both sides are sharpening their knives,” said Tahir Elci, a prominent attorney and head of the bar association in Diyarbakir, the biggest city in Kurdish-dominated parts of Turkey. “Both sides are chasing utopian goals. Both sides are getting farther from what is reasonable.”
Elci had a twitter account. Either his friends or family posted one last tweet:
A Reuters poll released Friday finds that GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump has dropped 12 points in less than a week, his largest single poll-to-poll drop since he took the primary lead in July.
Trump was still the favorite among 31 percent of Republicans in a rolling Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted from Nov. 23 to Nov. 27, but down from 43 percent support registered on Nov. 22.
The downtrend comes after a week of controversial comments he made about Muslims living in America, suggesting he would “surveil” mosques to root out domestic terrorist plots.
He also suggested a registered database for U.S. Muslims, which drew comparisons to Nazi Germany’s mandatory registration of Jews.
Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson also fell but finished second in the poll with 15 percent support.
Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) tie for third with 8 percent support each. Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush comes in fifth with 7 percent support.
I dunno.. it really sounds to me like this Reuters poll is from a bunch of total losers and complete haters who just want to help Hillary and Rubio bring in more Mexican Syrian refugees. I would ignore this poll because it doesn’t confirm what I want to hear. That’s all polls are for, really…
I mean everyone knows Reuters is a lightweight organization!! No one would trust them!!
I find that @Reuters is a far more professional operation than @AP.
There are three ways in which Thanksgiving represents the values of America better than nearly any other holiday. Let’s run through them, shall we?
There are all sorts of beliefs about what happiness consists in, but one of the keys is gratefulness. It doesn’t matter what you have, if you’re grateful for what many or few blessings God has given you, you’ll be much happier than someone who is always envying what others have. It’s so important that we have an entire holiday dedicated to it, and it’s one of our most cherished holidays, because that’s one of our most cherished values.
It’s important to note that our country places such a high value on happiness that it’s enshrined in our Declaration of Independence. But it’s phrased in such a way to emphasize that the individual has the power over their own happiness – the government doesn’t guarantee happiness, it merely allows for the freedom of an individual to pursue their own happiness.
But there’s one last very important piece of this holiday – in order for you to be grateful, you have to be grateful TO something. I don’t understand how an atheist practices Thanksgiving – what or who are they thankful to? But for the rest of us, it’s easy, because we recognize that all the beauty and goodness in the world has a source that is ultimate goodness, and that is God. And from the very beginning of this holiday, and from the founding of the country, we’ve recognized and honored that source of all good things.
And that’s why Thanksgiving is uniquely American.
Now go hug your family and your loved ones. Because life is just too damn short.
Also root for the Dallas Cowboys today, because that’s the Right Scoop’s team!!
This week we vaguely talk about Thanksgiving while revisiting some classic clips from the past SooperPodcasts. Then Matt whines about Donald Trump for a while, Helvetica Chimichanga gets a new name, el Sooper angers a whiny liberal journalist online, and we all make fun of Dodge’s stupid “Hunger Games” commercial tie-in.
There’s bound to be some other explanation that el Trumpo is gonna come up with but it really does appear that he’s mocking a reporter’s disability in these comments where he’s defending what he said about “thousands and thousands” of Muslims dancing during 9/11 in New Jersey.
During a defense of his widelydebunked claim that thousands of people in parts of New Jersey with large Arab populations celebrated the collapse of the World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001, Trump performed a derisive impression of New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski — who suffers from a chronic condition that has limited the movement of his arms — at a rally in South Carolina on Tuesday night.
Citing a 2001 article written by Kovaleski that referred to people allegedly seen celebrating the attacks, Trump said it was “Written by a nice reporter.”
Trump went on, “Now the poor guy — you ought to see the guy: ‘Uhh I don’t know what I said. I don’t remember.’ He’s going, ‘I don’t remember. Maybe that’s what I said.’” As he spoke, Trump launched into an impression which involved gyrating his arms wildly and imitating the unusual angle at which Kovaleski’s hand sometimes rests.
That’s pretty rough.
I worked at the WaPo w/ @sergenyt. Disability's not what anyone who worked with him saw in this very fine pro. Episode says a lot abt trump.
In this video introduction to some Muslim woman whining about “Islamophobia,” they deceptively edit Ben Carson’s comments about Syrian refugees to make it sound like he’s calling all Muslims “rabid dogs.”
It’s at the very beginning of this video at about the 18 second mark:
They cut out the entire context of what he said. He was making an analogy to having your kids running around, and letting rabid dogs around them – he was comparing the ISIS TERRORISTS to mad dogs.
You can see the entire context here with the whole video:
He is specifically talking about screening for terrorists in his analogy to rabid dogs, not all Muslims.
