    Ya...fake news. Why does the mainstream media use the exact same talking point lines? Word for word! Happens all the time and across networks. I mean seriously...they could hire a high school student to reword their talking points to at least make it a little less obvious and ridiculous. Though in a way I’m kinda glad they are so lazy to make it obvious.

    I’m not a big Ted-X fan but maybe that’s because I’ve had to watch different ones than this type and maybe there are more out there that are similar.



    I can’t describe how humorous it is to me that Obama and Alphabet Inc and mainstream media gave birth to “Fake News” only to have Trump steal it from them and weaponize it against them better than they ever dreamed of themselves. But give credit where credit is due.

    Trump couldn’t have done it without them all and without mainstream media so blatantly pushing propaganda in the name of “news” while ignoring truth and facts.

    Not to mention the language. Apparently he was with his wife and child. Who talks like that - especially in front of your family? Just shows you that these people who act crazy on TV are also crazy in real life.

    I remember trying to correct someone on here who was saying that Local TV News wasn't part of the problem.

    Using the exact same words may be part of the gaslighting strategy or just laziness. I don't know.

    I don't have a problem with his response either. The man was baiting Fredo and he stood his ground. The camera was being held low, so as to film the deal w/o it being noticed. It was planned the entire time, if someone did that to yall I think you would be very offended yourselves.

    Its totally uncool what that guy did. But when you're with your family, and knowing people like to set you up, you act like that? LOL.

    Yeah I would imagine its a constant for anyone who is in the public eye, lib or con. I think the responsibility is on the public not to harass or bait. If you don't like them don't watch them, but leave them alone in public. If you don't then you get what you get

    Sorry, but considering the crap that Cuomo and others like him say about the President and conservatives in general, I have no sympathy for the creep at all, and he should be the one thrown down the stairs.

    Lol. Trump tweeted Cuomo should be “red flagged” and barred from buying firearms after this.

    Great demonstration of the slippery slope unconstitutional of red flag laws.

    He's such a Troll, hilarious. They're not used to doing anything other than trolling others, and now they get it back.

    Understand they don’t like their own medicine but did they have to drive our nation to a point where we elected a Maniac just to counteract their BS? At what point do we get our nation back under control?

    The only Liberal argument you get is the same old chanting, repeating talking points crap that has pissed damn near everyone off. The few that try to defend their positions the depth of their analysis or understanding of the issues are about a millimeter deep. It’s really sad what we’ve become as a country.

    I don’t see much changing anytime soon. DNC playbook is set in stone.
