    It's an opinion. Can you prove your opinion that Snopes is an unbiased fact check orgainization? No you can't. Stop making a stupid argument.

    Huh? We just got done explaining why they're incorrect with supporting evidence.

    No you didn't. You both offered hypothetical stories where you showed how you think Snopes would twist a story, you did not provide a single instance oaf a finding where Snopes was shown to wrong. That is so far from "proof...

    False. We just got done documenting through the referencing of news articles and stories and videos that there weren't confederate flags flying everywhere. In a crowd of 25,000 people, one half-flag was found and one 2-inch sticker flag thing was found. We also found articles referencing that 3 different police departments had assigned nearly 1,000 officers to the gathering, so the notion that there weren't any cops there was also proven incorrect.

    So that 1 single Snopes story was wrong on both counts. AOC's contention was that "all these people were flying confederate flags" and there were "almost no police officers". Both are easily proven false. Snopes said the contentions were true.

    I like Presidents who are above being an internet troll. He's a basic *****, appealing to the lowest denominator and you guys are lapping it up as if it's something to idolize.

    I think you all have a misconception of me. I've not once voted for a federal Democrat, only for a local government. I participated in the Republican Primary in 2016. Trump was not my choice. I found him silly, unserious, and intellectually basic. I WANTED A REPUBLICAN TO WIN 2016. Trump is the worst outcome and really all of us should not think the way he acts, the way he speaks, the way he conducts our business is normal.

    SOME are lapping it up. Others call him a Maniac, a human troll, and a bombastic *******.

    Who did you vote for in the General election? The Green Party?

    We all knew Trump was a complete imbecile going into the election. So the fact he is what he is, is not the worst outcome. He's implemented every campaign promise he offered. That is actually the best possible outcome. I mean, it would be nice if he'd stop being a total and complete *******. But absent that, its amazing he did what he said he would...despite nearly the full weight of the government subverting his administration.

    AMEN !!! I knew full well ahead of time what a jerk he can be, but I liked his promises and his focus on America first. He may continue to be a jerk, but he HAS worked towards keeping his promises and has, in fact, actually kept many of them.

    It's been standard operating procedure for the DNC for quite a while and has been very successful for them. Left is just mad that Trump does it as good or better than they have. Whah.

    An imbecile makes imbecilic promises and implements them - that's a good scenario?

    He didn't make imbecilic promises. I'm talking about tax cuts, renegotiated trade deals, making other governments pay their fair share at the UN/NATO, reducing regulations, and so on. Yes, a politician doing what they campaigned on is a best case scenario, policy-wise.

    The first promise he kept. And the one that pisses off the most people.

    But at the time it seemed imbecilic that he thought he could beat her.

    I had never seen this flag before so I tried to look it up. Maybe someone can find it because all I could find is it appears to be some flag an online store called “Rebel Nation” sells along with a bunch of other “redneck” junk. It is not a Confederate flag technically.

    If you want an instance of Snopes fact checking being inaccurate, look no further than their “TRUE” rating with a big check mark indicating AOC’s comments were accurate. The video shows that her comments clearly “FALSE”, and if you try to warp it for max effect was you could possibly conclude it may have been extremely misleading. There’s no way an unbiased rater could have concluded her comments “TRUE”. That much is true.
