There is simply no way to fact check Donald Trump in real time.
He lies so much – no one cold be expected to keep up.
‘Donald Trump went on CNBC this morning, and, over the course of a wide-ranging interview, once again reminded the world of the most fundamental fact about his candidacy — he doesn’t really seem to understand any aspect of American public policy’.
“I believe it’s a false market,” Trump said of the current state of American stocks. “I don’t even invest in the stock market.”
‘Trump’s personal financial disclosures to the Federal Election Commission have been fairly skimpy given the complicated nature of his finances, but they clearly show that he does in fact own millions of dollars in stock’.
‘Trump’s last gift to his own charity foundation was in 2008 – all the rest of the money comes from other sources, which Trump then uses to give to other charities, creating the impression that he is a generous man’.
‘Sometimes, however, Trump has straight-up used donation money to buy himself personal gifts, the most flagrant of which was reportedly a $20,000 six-foot painting of himself’.
‘The Washington Post contacted over 250 charities in attempts to track down Trump’s “donations” – but were largely unsuccessful. Many of the charities that Trump told the IRS he had donated to had no idea that he had promised them money’.
- ‘The Charles Evans Foundation in New Jersey, for instance, donated $150,000 to the Trump Foundation, which then donated the money to the Palm Beach Police Foundation in 2010’.
- ‘Trump was awarded the Palm Tree award for “his” generosity, which he accepted in at an opulent party held at his own Mar-a-Lago mansion in Florida – and made money off of, since the police department paid to rent the room’.
‘It’s “unclear” how much Trump made off that particular event, but in 2014, tax returns show the police department paid over $276,463 to rent the place for another event, which in all likelihood came from the taxpayers’.
The (cough) ‘news’ media is almost making sure it’s a close race for ratings.
They refuse to fact check Trump and instead pass on as ‘fact’ conspiracy stories on Hillary and ‘real news’.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — “Democrats are reportedly considering an emergency meeting to discuss the possibility of replacing Hillary Clinton on the ticket”.
“Left-wing journalist David Shuster reported the news based on conversations with Democratic operatives”.
Oh and “left wing journalist David Shuster”?
David Shuster – ““There’s just something a little bit unseemly to me that Chelsea’s out there calling up celebrities, saying support my mom… doesn’t it seem like Chelsea’s sort of being pimped out in some weird sort of way?”
Sweet Home Baptist Church, McKenzie, Alabama
Pastor: Rev. Allen Joyner – Location: County Road 107, .5 mi. south of AL. Hwy. 55 near McKenzie, AL
‘According to Al.com, Pastor Allen Joyner of the Sweet Home Baptist Church made the announcement prior to a game at McKenzie High School, telling the attendees they should prepare to line up for execution by members of the military’.
“If you don’t want to stand for the national anthem, you can line up over there by the fence and let our military personnel take a few shots at you since they’re taking shots for you,” he announced to the cheers of the crowd, according to a Facebook post — since removed — by attendee Denise Crowley-Whitfield’.
‘Speaking for Butler County Schools, Superintendent Amy Bryan immediately denounced Joyner’s comments in a statement, saying, “Patriotism should be a part of school events but threats of shooting people who aren’t patriotic, even in jest, have no place at a school. Threats of violence are a violation of school policy and certainly not condoned by the school board.”
‘According to the paper, Sweet Home Baptist briefly supported Joyner’s comments on its Facebook page on Saturday before pulling the post after approximately an hour’.
Just because you believe President Obama is a Muslim doesn’t make you a racist or bigot……..does it?
‘Two-thirds of voters with a favorable opinion of Donald Trump believe President Barack Obama is a Muslim’,
‘a quarter of them believe that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was murdered, a poll released Tuesday shows’.
‘Only 13 percent believe he’s a Christian’.
Just because you are a Presidential candidate or his followers and you promote conspiracy theories doesn’t mean your deplorable…..does it?
‘Earlier today, Donald Trump chatted with far-right radio host Michael Savage, who has been voicing doubts that Justice Antonin Scalia died of natural causes, suggesting that foul play was involved in the conservative jurist’s death’.
‘Trump responded that while he doesn’t have enough information to comment on whether Scalia was murdered, he found it “pretty unusual” that the justice was discovered with “a pillow on his face.”
So Hillary was right about the ‘half’ remark…….
‘The Bloomberg Politics/Des Moines Register poll found that 35 percent of likely Iowa Republican caucusgoers don’t believe the President was born in the U.S’.
‘That “birther” share rose to 46 percent among Trump supporters, the poll found’.
We have a representative government that is elected.
But let’s advocate treason – overthrowing a duly elected government by so called ‘patriots’.
‘patriotism being defined by you didn’t get the candidate elected you wanted so they are unconstitutional…….
