Don't know, but I hope John Oliver sees this.

If America were a TRUE democracy Trump would've been removed from office by now.

Get educated. The United States of America is a Republic. Not a democracy.

 

CNN is just comedy central. They have No credibility.

Edit: John oliver is just a poor mans austin powers, dog shit has more credibility.

I'm sorry, but this is extremely dumb and commonly repeated by uneducated right wingers. The US is a republic that is democratic, albeit representative. A common definition of a democracy is this: "Government by the people, exercised either directly or through elected representatives". One does not exclude the other. It is not a direct democracy, but a democracy nonetheless. People who say what you just said should excuse themselves from American political discussions.

No he recorded tapes that the FBI got a hold of and CNN got their hands on some tapes and leaked them.

Cohen and his attorney, Lanny Davis, sent CNN the tape.  It wasn't leaked from the FBI to CNN.



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

Banning reporters because you don't like the questions they asked, on the one hand I find it hard to believe that anyone would support that as it's a very slippery slope.
On the other hand, I'm not surprised at many of these types of comments anymore.

Still CNN did the leaking. Cohen is scum, CNN is scum. Trump is also scum but in this situation I agree with banning them.

He’s just now doing this?

Trump has just banned CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins from an open press event at the White House, and this is right after he was outraged that he saw Melania watching CNN on Air Force One.

I told you so. Again.

So the left has been trying to get Melania to do something about The Don. She wears a coat that the media would see that says she doesn't care. They continue to bother her and their family. She's then seen watching CNN, and shortly after Trump bans a CNN reporter.

Sounds like Melania finally decided to do something I guess. Why are they so mad?



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

President Trump:


I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

What happened to being a free country? Trump should stop trying to limit the "free press".

CNN is free to make stories of all of the other journalists in the meeting. They can take photos from outside the doors and then cry about for a week lmao.

 

Attending a whitehouse conference doesn’t have anything to do with freedom of the press as law and banning an organization from meetings doesn’t make the country any less free. What law did Trump break by doing this? He doesn’t have to have press meetings at all if he doesn’t want to. Your claim is out there is all I’m saying.
