    says two of the biggest drain clogs in the northern hemisphere...how about some truthiness to go with your weird ass fantasies based on complete lies?

    The only thing the Mueller report vindicates is the press (which does not include Fox, they are infotainment for white bigots, mostly elderly). 95% of the stories over the past two years have been accurate. From the article:

    At their best, journalists are everything that Trump is not: careful with facts, cautious in their phrasing, and accountable to the truth. Are there bad, sloppy journalists? Sure. Do journalists make a lot of mistakes? Sure. But as a rule, reporters sweat over every fact and assertion in the stories they publish. They try hard to get their stories right, even as Trump and his associates falsely malign them for getting their stories wrong. There is not and has never been a media conspiracy against Donald J. Trump. The Mueller report reveals that negative coverage isn’t the product of a dishonest media vendetta against the president. It’s the result of reporters having eyes and ears.

    From the dawn of his presidential campaign, and especially since Robert Mueller was named special counsel, President Donald Trump has waged war on professional journalism. He has maligned the press as a den of liars and fabulists. He has applied the term “fake news” to any story or outlet that he dislikes—or that he thinks dislikes him. He has mocked “the failing New York Times” and the “Amazon Washington Post.” He has tweeted an edited video of himself wrestling and overpowering a figure with a CNN logo for a head. He has called the media the “enemy of the people.”

    Trump has been adamant about discrediting the media because the media has discredited him. “I do it to discredit you all and demean you all, so when you write negative stories about me, no one will believe you,” Trump told Lesley Stahl in 2016. His scorched-earth tactics have worked, to a point. Trump’s war against journalism has energized his base and has powered his efforts to preemptively undermine the Mueller report. Now, the Mueller report is out, and the journalists who’ve spent the past several years reporting on Trump’s conduct are looking a lot better than Trump himself.

    From Donnie's secret meeting with a russian agent to get dirt on hillary, which the NY Times reported, and trump and hannity said were complete lies, UNTIL DONNIE RELEASED THE EMAIL EXCHANGE WHICH PROVED THE NY TIMES WAS RIGHT ON...When the New York Times first reported this story in July 2017, Trump Jr. claimed that the “short introductory meeting” was innocuous; in a subsequent appearance on the Fox News program Hannity, Trump Jr. called the meeting “such a nothing” and “literally just a wasted 20 minutes, which was a shame.” Sean Hannity noted that “liberals in the destroy Trump media once again have worked themselves into frenzy. They’re frothing at the mouth.”

    to a Washington Post story that Manafort talked to Russian obligarch Derispaka about providing briefings to him about the election for some running around money, Hannity jeered the fact that the story had appeared in “the Washington Post—you know, they have so many false reports,” and suggested that Manafort had been unfairly targeted by inquisitors intent on reading ill intent into what were likely innocuous exchanges. “ ‘How’s things going in the campaign?’ ” Hannity continued, speculating on what the correspondence between Manafort and Deripaska might have looked like. “Wow. It could’ve been as innocent as that. Do we believe that you’re innocent until proven guilty in this country? You wouldn’t know it by watching the mainstream media.”

    In January 2018, to take another instance, the Times reported that Trump had ordered White House Counsel Donald McGahn to fire Robert Mueller in June 2017, only to back off when McGahn refused to do so. “Fake news, folks. Fake news. A typical New York Times fake story,” Trump responded at the time, and his cable news champions took up the same refrain. “Haven’t we had a number of these Washington Post, New York Times stories end up being debunked with their phony, you know, anonymous sourcing?” Hannity said on Fox News the night the story broke. “Yeah, these are not reliable reporters,” Hannity’s guest Gregg Jarrett replied.

    The reporters were reliable. The Mueller report confirmed not just that Trump had ordered McGahn to get rid of Mueller but that he later tried to get McGahn to publicly deny the whole episode. McGahn told Mueller’s team that Trump had called him twice at home “and on both occasions directed him to call Rosenstein and say that Mueller had conflicts that precluded him from serving as Special Counsel.” McGahn did not want to do this, but Trump was insistent, “saying something like, ‘Call Rod, tell Rod that Mueller has conflicts and can’t be the Special Counsel.’ McGahn recalled the President telling him ‘Mueller has to go’ and ‘Call me back when you do it.’ ” The Times was right.

    Fox polling says that trump’s approval rating is 44%. Are they right about that, also? Or is that different. : )

    To show us all how deplorable Trump cultists are, they’re actually crowing about a 448 page report chock full of devastating details about Trump and his cronies.

    they are doing handsprings because it only said trump was a lying, corrupt, incompetent, piece of crap human being but maybe did not commit any crimes that he can be convicted of in court. and somehow that is a "victory" for Trump and for Fox!!

    I'm merely gloating because I have said from the very beginning that the whole thing was based on fake evidence and entrapment. I didn't vote for Trump. I don't like Trump. Nor do I support the bulk of his agenda. I do, however, posses a deep fealty for the truth - a trait apparently not shared by the #resistance...

    Another relentless Trump ass kisser who oddly feels compelled to deny that he plants big old smooches on Trump’s fat ass.

    Interesting.

    I do wish that Fox hadn't gotten rid of a few stellar people. Eric Bolling is one that I miss. And I wish Fox hadn't brought on some real losers. Donna Brazile and Marie Harff are two such people.

    I am more selective in my Fox viewing than I once was since there are some open Never Trumpers there...... Shep Smith, for example.

    Fox is still the most honest news source I have found even though I rarely watch it these days.

    learn to read. it was based on real info, real examples of collusion, real examples of obstruction of justice, real examples of 101 documented meetings with known Russian agents connected to Putin, real examples of most of those meetings being lied about by trump and his associates, and real examples all through out the Mueller Report of what a lying, dishonest, blowhard, creepy, corrupt piece of crap trump is and most of his closest cronies.

    The print media are even worse. They think they are the Churchills of our time, but not only is it self-deluding to think they are warning us against a Hitler-type, but Sir Winston could magnificently out-write and out-wit these pompously scribbling eunuchs. The only candle they could hold to him is the one needed to make a bonfire out of their 'zines.

    no, he was not cleared of anything. as in every trial by jury, a person is never found innocent, just not guilty. trump is clearly not innocent of collusion or fraud or dishonesty or obstructing justice of trying to induce others to obstruct justice, but, so far, in Mueller's view, there is no smoking gun that can prove his guilt of a felony beyond a reasonable doubt. go back and read the Mueller Report, if you can read. and then try to explain why you would say something so stupid.
