    So today, Trump admits the Trump Tower meeting with Don Jr. was for the purpose of collecting "information on an opponent."

    1) Previously, it was simply about Russian adoption.

    2) Don Jr's public statement was originally his own statement, but eventually morphed into a statement dictated by Trump.

    --

    Anyone want to compile a list?

    What else has Trump said, that turned out to be 'fake news'?

    --This is the topic; we're not discussing Hillary or Obama, or anyone else but Trump and his statements.





    BTW, in honor of The Lord's Day:

    Luke 12:3
    Whatever in the darkness you said, in the light shall be heard: and what to the ear you spake in the inner-chambers, shall be proclaimed upon the house-tops.


    John 8:12
    Again, therefore, Jesus spake to them, saying, `I am the light of the world; he who is following me shall not walk in the darkness, but he shall have the light of the life.'

    Let's all celebrate these forthcoming revelations for the sake of being Pro-Life, i.e truth-seekers and followers, if nothing else!

    In addition, did Trump declare California a disaster area? I find it on the Internet, but not on CNN.

    Trump tends to call anything he disagree's with fake news. When I hear this I mostly just roll my eyes and move on to better things.

    Rule of thumb, if Trump calls it Fake News, it is probably true.

    Not much news anymore, fake or otherwise. It's all become speculations and opinions. Just choose what sounds good and follow.

    In general it seems he designates anything he disagrees with to be "fake news". It also seems that this "fake news" is often true.

    And here's the implication that's too easy to miss, and that is, not only did Trump repeatedly lie (certainly not new news), but now there can be a case made that this went beyond "collusion" and into "conspiracy", the latter of which is criminal.

    Also, Donald Jr. can be tried for perjury as he's in a legal world of hurt.

    This is not speculation. Trump is on record claiming multiple, contradicting stories about the Trump Tower meeting. Since all cannot be true, he definitely has lied about the meeting.

    Most Trump voter get there information in online networks where it can be tossed around debated, proven or refuted. It is actually healthier to get information online than on TV. Many of the fake news networks will have the comment section removed off their platforms as to not let people debate or call out their fake and bias made up sources. It should be labeled fake news if they don't allow people to debate the topic collectively. Its like they expect us to have all the answers but now they want all the answers to come from them, not group discussion with the truth of the matter just clicks away.

    Being my usual snotty self, I think the Trump folk have special labels printed for beer bottles, so their voters can be properly informed, Burp !

    So you would stereotype a whole country for what they believe? People who have no belief do not vote. It is quite true that projections are birthed from a source, so do tell, to which temple doest thou cometh ?
