    Lying Dick

    In 2013, Politico reported:

    “In a ‘negotiation’ meeting with the president, one GOP House Leader told [President Barack Obama]: ‘I cannot even stand to look at you,’” Durbin wrote in a post on his Facebook page over the weekend.

    However, both the White House and the House speaker’s office denied Durbin’s account of events.

    Asked about the post in the White House daily briefing, press secretary Jay Carney said he checked with a participant of the meeting in question.

    “I looked into this and spoke with somebody who was in that meeting and it did not happen,” Carney said.

    Well, we regularly kill Muslim Extremists, as we did the supporters of the primary state manifestation of White Nationalism, as proposed by the Dukes of the world.

    Durbin confirmed what Trump was reported to have said. My question was, who "broadcast to the world" what Trump said?

    Seems like we have judged them as not really being fine people if we are willing to kill them over it.

    Conflicting interests have nothing to do with character assessments

    I think there is a lot more there than just conflicting interests.

    After Saving Many From Fire, Soldier Died Trying to Rescue One More

    Emmanuel Mensah was a handsome, strongly built young man in his late 20s who immigrated to the Bronx from Ghana five years ago. He joined the Army National Guard but returned to his apartment on Prospect Avenue in December, after graduating from boot camp with the rank of private first class.

    And on Thursday night, he lost his life trying to save people from his furiously burning apartment building, one of 12 people to die in the blaze.

    “He brought four people out,” said his uncle, Twum Bredu, who lives next door. “When he went to bring a fifth person out, the fire caught up with him.”

    The story of Trump's comments was broken by the Washington Post on January 12, citing "several people who were briefed on the meeting."

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/poli...1ac729add94_story.html?utm_term=.e1930cfaba4e

    None of the sources are identified, but the White did not deny that Trump said it, and Trump waited some 15 hours to tweet a denial. And his denial was based on a semantic technicality, since according to some sources he said "shithouse," not shithole.

    I originally suspected that the source was a White House leaker. However, those leaks appear to have ceased or grown less frequent with the departure of Steve Bannon, though not before Bannon got all the leaks he could bundle together for the hack writer who wrote Fire and Fury. Has there ever been a greater Judas to hold a high position in the White House?

    Cotton and Perdue contend that he said "$1#* house" not "$1#* hole." I guess that's a big difference.
