Fact-checking President Trumps Fake News awards Washington Post

By Glenn Kessler January 17 at 10:31 PM

The “Fake News Awards” announced on the Republican National Committee website and touted by President Trump pose a conundrum: Does it really count if the news organization admits error?

Regular readers of The Fact Checker know that we do not award Pinocchios if a politician admits error. Everyone makes mistakes — and the point is not to play gotcha. News organizations operate in a competitive arena and mistakes are bound to be made. The key test is whether an error is acknowledged and corrected.

President Trump almost never admits error, even has he has made more than 2,000 false or misleading statements. So with that context, here’s an assessment of the “awards:”

Time's up, says Thomas Jefferson...

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Sheesh...the orange guy

certainly can't even read a speech decently. And he glaringly mispronounced oceanographer.

"'Mainly a Failure': Trump Approval Ratings Hit New Near-Historic Low" by Nadia Prupis

'Mainly a Failure': Trump Approval Ratings Hit New Near-Historic Low

'There is no way to spin or sugarcoat these sagging numbers'
President Donald Trump's approval ratings have slipped yet again, falling to a near-record low of 36 percent, according to a poll released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University.

The survey of registered voters found that 58 percent disapprove of the job he's doing as president. When broken down into issues, the numbers are even more stark, with 59 percent disapproving of his handling of foreign policy and 62 percent disapproving of his take on immigration.


Arise o God! Holy Saturday

OMG! SNL's Baldwin as Cheetolini tonight

Enough is enough: Throw out the whole Trump administration!


I am so heartsick.

I knew Hillary was infinitely better than Trump although I had been a delegate from West Virginia for Bernie.

I really really thought she would win both the popular vote AND the Electoral College vote.

Then after the election I thought Trump's freak show would come crashing down before January 20th.

Now every day it gets worse and worse and our WV Senators and Representatives are aiding and abetting the big orange and his tainted crew.

I feel powerless but I try to keep faith and hope.
