Trump chides Giuliani to 'get his facts straight' on Stormy

The idea of Trump chiding anyone on ‘facts’ is mind-bending.

13 ( +15 / -2 )

Facts and Trump are oil and water.

This is an impressive hole sleazy Don has dug for himself. And he just keeps on digging...

Would that be actual facts or alternative facts?

Randy Rudy's gone by month's end.He'll jump before being pushed.He must be regretting joining up with trump.He's beyond salvation, redemption or any other "tion."

Trump is not the sort of person I'd like to actually meet, certainly would protect my family from this man, as much as I could.

It takes two to tango. Or not to tango. Or to pay someone because she didn’t tango. Or to say you didn’t know your lawyer paid someone not to tango. Or to contradict a statement made by your new lawyer that...

All very messy from the well-oiled machine supervised by a stable genius.

This media circus could have been avoided with a bit of honesty and competence.

And the obvious fact that the president of the US fornicating with a sex worker - then denying then admitting and then denying - paying hush money - that actually constitues as a gross campaign finance violation simply isn't news. In Blacklabel's bubble.

Heh, this was supposed to be one of Trump's smaller scandals. Keep on digging !!

I thought with Trump, we are living in a post-fact society.

Rubel Ruby was hosted to be the New York lawyer savior who was going to wipe the floor clean with all the Stormy Russian stuff but the bald facts, at least with the "sex with porn star saga" Rubel Ruby thought he was throwing a bucket of water but threw oil instead even leaving Hannity somewhat shocked, wasn't in the script. Scolded by his master Trump for spreading fake news and Trump returns to the pervious state of denial and dismissing he repaid his Cohen lawyer for the porn hushy bride to stay quiet in the campaign run in.

"Imagine if that came out on October 15, 2016, in the middle of the last debate with Hillary Clinton."

yes! just imagine. Hole different ball game!

Trump could have stopped this like day, weeks, months ago by admitting it to the American people and moving on. It's only Trump who keeps changing and pushing the agenda. Hope he can keep it together until there's a real time deal with the denuclearization of North Korea.

We have already talked about this subject more than enough. Seems there would be something else to talk about here.

And no this isn’t a campaign finance violation. Even if it were, the last guy paid a large fine for a much larger violation.

@blackl We have already talked about this subject more than enough.

Who's 'we'? Once again, you're not speaking for me. I read lots of publications. I'm free to choose which ones I focus on. I'm free to choose which articles to read and which to comment on. People who only want to read articles that reflect their personal beliefs are free to. The internet is filled with publications representing just about every perspective possible. I like that; want to see a free, for-profit press remain. With it, people can read about almost anything you can think of, even things like Kyushu Cuisine.

Donny and Rudy. Like Dumb and Dumber, although hard to tell which is which in this whole farce.

JT World News today - 6 stories on Trump. The man's ego must be huge at this stage. Biggest ever.

Trump will be fine. He always picks the best people for the job! ahem ahem.

"The idea of Trump chiding anyone on ‘facts’ is mind-bending."

The idea of the media focusing on the Stormy crap to the exclusion of all the positive things that have happened thus far in this presidency is mind bending.

Oh my...

The harassment toward Trump is over the top

I like how Trump tells Giuliani to get his facts straight... after admitting what Giuliani said is true!

Serrano: "The harassment toward Trump is over the top"

Awwww... shucks! Poor Serrano and poor Trump. No, friend, not only is it not enough, the man will be ripped apart for the rest of his life, which likely won't be long giving his lifestyle habits.

And no this isn’t a campaign finance violation. 

Oh, can you point me to a link where that has been decided in court?

Rudy: references to timing were not describing my understanding of the president's knowledge

vs

telling "Fox & Friends" on Thursday that the president didn't know all the details until "maybe 10 days ago." 

Kinda sounds like you were talking about the timing of the president’s knowledge.

It’s really, really, really simple. Sit Trump down and explain to him that he can’t lie his way out of this, then plan your next move. He just keeps digging himself a bigger and bigger hole with this story and he has no one to blame but himself.

Just stop treating everyone like we’re stupid. Your base will keep their mouths shut but not everyone is part of your base.

Dear Mr Hannity, I don't watch your show as it merely parrots the same ridiculous conspiracy theories and propaganda that comes out of Russia Today and Sputnik - that, and it's all hate and fear. But I have to hand it to you, your show with Rudy exposed Trump for the lying, huckster, pervert he really is. Well done Sean. Keep it up and I may watch your show more than the once every three to four years I do now...

We have already talked about this subject more than enough.

You can stop talking about it any time you like.

Other people will continue to discuss it, and the more Trump, Cohen, and Giuliani lie about it, and can't even agree with each other on which lie to push, the more they will keep interest in the subject alive. Total incompetence.

No man has ever looked more lost in the presidency than this comedian.

If I was a Trump supporter, I’d be furious at the sheer incompetence of the way this was handled.

He goes on the warpath against the media, apart from the classy ones like the National Enquirer and Fox, and then makes a total balls-up when dealing with the kind of sleazy scandal the media laps up. His supporters then claim unfair treatment from a media he labeled as liars and frauds.

What did you expect?

The story keeps changing

That leads to more talk

Trump could have stopped this like day, weeks, months ago by admitting it to the American people and moving on.

Now you know you don’t believe that. Had Trump said anything remotely indicating he talked to the woman, the media would have had another dose of laughable daily breakdown.

It's only Trump who keeps changing and pushing the agenda. Hope he can keep it together until there's a real time deal with the denuclearization of North Korea.

He will and I hope the media do something like.......work and focus more on NK and the talks instead of this stupid person that is just money hungry, no surprise and her slimy lawyer that is desperately trying and thinking he should get a job on msnbc.

In 2015, Trump wrote his own medical report and got the doctors to sign and then handed out copies and even read it on the TV.

He could write the script for this sex porn scandal and hand it out so allis lawyers and White House staff are on the same price.

Lots of people are money hungry. It’s part of what drives capitalism. You can’t fault her for that. Trump likes suing people too.

And as you said, she is kinda hot.

Stay tuned, on Sean Hannity tonight….

Rudy admits that Donald and Stormy did spend the night together, but there was no sex - just $130K worth of spanking…

And hear the latest bombshell, Hillary Clinton caught in a lesbian three-way with Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Monica Lewinsky, videotaped by Obama…

Remember, you heard it hear first (and last)…

Fox already had 4 Hillary stories on the front page yesterday. She won’t be back until Trump puts his foot in his mouth again. The cycle runs every 72 hours or so.

smith: "the man will be ripped apart for the rest of his life, which likely won't be long giving his lifestyle habits."

Um, Trump has been given a clean bill of health.

lincolnman - Heh, that's some wild imagination you've got there.

Better still -- GET YOUR LIES STRAIGHT!

which he wrote himself. Shame really.

Maybe adding Giuliani to his "team" is supposed to make the thing "respectable."

In other news, Trump has finally paid his settlement for his fake university scam. It sucks that those people only get half of their money back, but it’s good to see Trump get caught and punished for lying.

His taxes should have a line item for “Monies to pay off scams and porn stars.”

It’s only “hush money” if it is to hide a crime. Extra-marital affaires are not illegal - at least not yet. No doubt those puritans of the Left would love to make it a crime now.

If I was a Trump supporter, I’d be furious at the sheer incompetence of the way this was handled. 

I don’t think Trump supporters care about who he sleeps with.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

Or who he scams.

In 2015, Trump wrote his own medical report and got the doctors to sign and then handed out copies and even read it on the TV.

And your evidence of this is......

He could write the script for this sex porn scandal and hand it out so allis lawyers and White House staff are on the same price.

That just didn’t make any sense whatsoever.

It’s only “hush money” if it is to hide a crime. 

Er... Wrong. Hush money doesn’t have to pertain to a crime.

@SuperLib: Or who he scams.

So Trump pulls a Bill Clinton and seeks to conceal a consensual extra-marital sexual encounter but when Obama tells a consequential lie like “if you like your doctor you can keep your dictor” that’s no big deal? Trump is surely a clown but his short comings are inconsequential to the public welfare. Obama flat out lies about his health care plan being a fine instead of a tax then tells the Supreme Court the exact opposite. Which is worse?

Wolfpack "If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor" is far worse.

Oh my...

Giuliani: Trump's reimbursement of payment violates no law
