"WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT"

That's how Reuters labeled a video clip of President Trump talking on Friday.

In a tweet, the newswire also included a "GRAPHIC LANGUAGE WARNING."

Why? Because the president cursed twice while lying about the media during an appearance at the National Association of Realtors: "Everything is 'A source says.' There is no source. The person doesn't exist. The person's not alive. It's @#$%&, OK? It's @#$%&."( Bull bull)

The crowd cheered. But the real B.S. was coming from Trump: "Just this week," The Hill's story noted, "an official from the Trump administration detailing its immigration plan did so on the condition they be referred to only as a senior administration official and not by their name."

>> Jim Acosta had a good line about this: "Much of the B.S. we hear over here at the White House is very much on the record..."

I’m OK with coarse language and for elected officials it’s worse when they dance around a meaning to shine up a turd of an issue.

I don’t know if Trump truly doesn’t understand legit journalistic practices but it’s probably fair to say he doesn’t care anything about them.

It’s the Realtors (sorry, I can’t type the Trademark symbol but I know they often demand its inclusion) who should know better, since they’re actual people.

There’s a deeper problem here and it’s the pervasive “need” of literalism used in the service of false criticism. Hence you get the lie, no name = no person = it’s fake.

No, Don, it isn’t, but you are.

****************

Usually this “logic” manifests as, If we can’t fix [the issue] 100% immediately, it either can’t be fixed at all or no improvement is worth doing (see also any 2nd Amendment argument, etc).

Of course he was, but he didn't use it to rile up his fake-Christian moron base.

One theory is 45 is doing it as indoctrination into his cult. Breaking down the emotional barriers of Evangelicals and other conservative single issue voters.

Hard to say if it will take a different fascist strongman from within the party to hijack them, or another 'outsider' like 45.

Or just defeat them. Problem solved.
