Fake Jake Tapper: I Didn't Fact-Check Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Obvious Lie to My Face Because #OrangeManBadder

There are still "conservatives" who kiss up to this angry leftwing partisan.

Starfuckers gonna starfuck.

And also: He's not a star. Only some friendless shut-ins on Twitter know much more than that he exists and that he has an extremely high opinion of ximself.


She among many Democrats have accused Trump of calling the coronavirus a "hoax" on the campaign trail when he was actually conflating the uproar of the virus to the uproars of the Russia and Ukraine investigations, which he referred to as "hoaxes."

The Trump campaign responded to Ocasio-Cortez's comments on social media, calling the congresswoman's claim a "lie."

"AOC just repeated the lie that President Trump called coronavirus a "hoax." This is not true, and has been debunked by numerous fact-checking sources. This would've been a great time for a fact check, @jaketapper," Trump campaign rapid response staffer Abigail Marone said.

Tapper responded, acknowledging what Ocasio-Cortez said wasn't factually accurate.

"I thought about it, because the president did not call the virus a hoax," Tapper tweeted. "But I didnít because he *did* call a hoax the concerns of those saying that the response from the president was insufficient and that he was downplaying the gravity of the crisis. And that too was a lie."

Disputing the media's attempt to panic the nation into a great depression is a "lie"?

Your facts are just opinions, but their opinions are facts.

He continued, "I guess thatís the problem with a politician who lies so often; while I agree that Democrats are mischaracterizing what he said, what he did say was also false so itís tough to justify taking the time for a fact check when itís not taking a stand defining the truth."

Go fuck yourself, Gun Control, Inc. Spokesman.

You little Zucker Monkey Bitch.

That wasn't Fake Jake's only venture into Fake News today.

Note that Tapper is urging a deplatforming of Trump -- which is kind of CNN's speciality, isn't it? Although now they're up to deplatforming the president.

They're not biased, though. They just want to keep the president off the air.

This comes after two days after partisan cashew-headed clown Rachel Maddow demanded that the media stop carrying Trump's press conferences over fears he was spreading too much "false hope."

The three broadcast networks complied:


By the way, Fake Jake's very happy today because his wife told him she was bringing home a creampie for him to eat. He loves eating the creampies his wife brings home for him, prepared with care by other, more masculine men.

Because this is the new Narrative.

Guess who else jumped on this new fake narrative bandwagon? The fake Republican grifters in the "lincoln project."

Today they posted a new youtube video, "Fox and Fiends," in which they cherry-picked out-of-context quotes to convey a belief of a hoax.

9 Wait, wasn't it a couple of weeks ago when they were saying that Trump was not talking about this ENOUGH?

That he was not taking it seriously because he was not doing the daily briefings?

Now, after he does what they say they wanted, they want him to shut up?

The MSM is like an Ex Wife. Damned if you say anything, damned if you don't.

11 When Repubs get control of the House next year, and solidify the Senate, they need to pass bills that make life very, very difficult for liars in the media. Among them:

- Make it illegal for them or their parent companies to be invested in anything foreign.
- Revise libel and slander laws to make reporters personally liable for mischaracterizing congresspersons.
- They MUST cover briefings at the request of the president, no exceptions, or lose their broadcasting licenses.

Sigh.

Time to load up the arsenal and prepare to "resist".

Which brings me to an interesting point:

The entire Leftist "RESIST" Movement for the last 3.5 years has been resistance of lawful government run by someone they don't like.

Now the governments of various states (including Washington, where I live, and whose governor I can't stand) are taking absolutely illegal and unconstitutional actions that simply must be resisted, and we are all cowering like fucking sheep, because it's a cold virus we can't see.

State governments have broud powers to promote public health under their constitutions, but does that include preventing EVERYONE from working? Bullshit.

You have two choices: either admit you're a fraud and step aside for Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, or whatever malevolent geriatric the Rats trot out next. Then flee to Russia, Saudi Arabia, or whoever will have you, because trying to be president was a damn bad mistake.

Or say, truthfully, that we are in a national crisis and letting a bunch of foreign oligarchs in New York and LA have nearly complete control of the public airwaves and Internet is an intolerable disaster even under the best of circumstances, like the first three years of your term. When trying to enforce a self-induced collapse of the American economy, they are a direct threat to any semblance of national order and unity. If the majority of the American people regarded them with emotions more positive than rank contempt, you could not be President, and you have known this since inauguration. So stop pussyfooting around. If you can't do it, whoever replaces you will.

Posted by: J.J. Sefton

=======

A non-tinfoil version is available:

Dems are watching Andrew Cuomo take charge, even to overruling DeBlasio, and cooperating with Trump and presumably getting everything he wants out of the fed gov't.

At the same time, they're watching Bye-den -- or trying to, considering he can't get his internet number working and he's making pathetic forays like this

303 Tinfoil hat theory:

Andrew Cuomo is cooperating with the President and so when this blows over, the media can claim it was all his doing, and then the Dems draft him in Milwaukee and ride to victory in November.

Posted by: J.J. Sefton

=======

A non-tinfoil version is available:

Dems are watching Andrew Cuomo take charge, even to overruling DeBlasio, and cooperating with Trump and presumably getting everything he wants out of the fed gov't.

At the same time, they're watching Bye-den -- or trying to, considering he can't get his internet number working and he's making pathetic forays like this
(https://youtu.be/IBkeJNFI8Nc) --
and wishing they'd nominated Cuomo and wondering if it's too late.

Cuomo and Trump are momentarily using each other to each' s momentary advantage. Their relationship is not approved by The Squad but, yes, you are on to something. Soon enough Trump and Cuomo will be facing off with each other in the run for the November roses but today it benefits both to get along.

Other people like Budweiser. To each his own. I have never been on a cruise and likely never will. I love travel more than pretty much anything else so there is that.

The Bill Burr thing to me is a bid weird actually. He has always had this th ing about the world population. He goes back to this them a lot. He thinks there are too many people and a lot of our problems would be solved if there were fewer of us. I find that idea simplistic, reductive, and basically asinine.

nah, he has gone with this more times than that. He does think it. It wasn't just that one set about cruise ships. Of course he doesn't want to sink cruise ships. He does think there is a population problem because he has brought it up many times. Logic says it means something to him. It is not a big deal, he is a comedian and an individual. But it is reductive thinking imo. Not about the set, but the idea that population is a major problem.

Probably the greatest thing liberty and capitalism has shown is the ability to have populations that would have been unimaginable in the past, prosper and live better than their forebears.

Of course, of course, things are amped up and pretty much off the rails with Trump, but it's more a question of degree, than kind. And at least large parts of the briefings during this event have gone like the latter part of today's - pretty reasonable, some decent questions.
