Trump Wants Contest For Most Dishonest Fake News

In today’s fake news tantrum, Trump declared himself to be “your favorite president” and called for a contest to award a trophy to the most dishonest network. This morning’s rant came minutes after Trump was excoriated on CNN over reports that he’s privately been telling people that the Access Hollywood “Pussygate” tape isn’t real, despite his video apology in which he admitted to sexual assault.

  • Gustav2

    What is the WH hiding now?

    • TuuxKabin

      Plenty, sure.

  • Buford

    Trump is literally insane. Isn’t there a process documented somewhere which describes how to save this country from an insane person…!??!

    • Ernest Endevor

      Not for as long as the Republicans reckon they can repeal the estate tax. In my opinion, that’s their top priority because on that hinges future payback from billionaires. So I don’t think they want to get rid of him or do anything to protect the nation from his actions. Meantime, yes. I agree. He’s bonkers. And it’s going to get worse.

      • The_Wretched

        Estate tax is really just icing for the ultra rich. The 3% surcharge tax for the ACA and dropping ‘small business’ tax rate is the big money winner for them. The ultra-rich are all personally incorporated and accure their non-cap gains income via a corp structure.

        • Ernest Endevor

          I see. You don’t think the big pay-off is so their spawn can inherit their estates intact and found an inherited plutocracy?

          • The_Wretched

            It’s a lot of money but not the biggest bene they are trying to get. I fully agree it’s also insane policy wise. Similarly, they are going for changes in “basis step-up” to minimize cap gains.

    • Harley

      It’s called the 25th amendment.

      • Buford

        Yep.

  • 2patricius2

    The most dishonest fake news? News out of the White House and Drumpf’s tweets, hands down.

  • Mark Née Fuzz

    Not including Fox? Why? Because there’d be no contest. No contest at all. That’s why.

    • Harley

      Because Fox is the biggest fake news channel out there.

    • zhera

      Dear Leader has decided that Faux is not fake news. Any attempt at undermining this decision will be stomped down in an orange blaze of fury!

        It’s his number one news source, even with the daily intelligence briefs.

  • skyweaver

    I suspect Twitter is about to have a good ol’ time responding to this

    • GeneInSJ

      They are. I just checked before commenting! LOL!

  • sadoldguy

    Worst president ever !

    • SockMikey

      I wouldn’t call him a “president”, a _______ in Chief perhaps.

      _______ not being commander or other word you’d normally associate with presidential.

    • nocadrummer

      I just refer to him as “The Occupier of the White House”.
      I still have my doubts about the validity of his election.

      • Jamie Brewer

        He will always be “The Orange Turd” or #45 to me. I refuse to say that name and president in the same breath…….

  • Dazzer

    Finally! Trump suggests a competition that he would be a shoo-in to win every time.

  • pj

    the liar holds a fake news contest. how much lower can we go.

  • Harveyrabbit
  • netxtown

    I’d rather step in puppy shit – barefoot – than read/listen to anything this dotard dumb fuck has to offer. There isn’t gonna be a ‘vote’ donnie. It’s not gonna happen. Now go back to your fake gold throne and tweet something even more useless and offensive..

    Yeah, Fox News is the most credible which is why they’ve been banned in the UK.

    • kareemachan

      And Canada won’t let them shit in their backyard.

    • ChrisMorley

      Faux has not been banned in the UK, it was dropped by Sky, the main satellite broadcaster, because almost noone watched it.
      “Fox News is focused on the US market and designed for a US audience and, accordingly, it averages only a few thousand viewers across the day in the UK. We have concluded that it is not in our commercial interest to continue providing Fox News in the UK,” she added.

  • liondon#iamnotatraitor

    36 to 37%…isn’t that what he’s polling?

    • Natty Enquirer

      Between 37 and 39 percent according to Gallup. Margin of error 3 percent.

    • TuuxKabin

      Hmmmmm, duck tacos yesterday were delicious. Taco Sunday ’round here from now on.

      • kareemachan

        Shit. That sounds GOOD!

        • TuuxKabin

          Good and greasy, but yeah, once you get around all the fat it’s pretty damn del’.

      • djcoastermark

        Yuuuummm. Sadly I haven’t cooked duck at home in years as I am the only one that enjoys it. I always have to get it at a restaurant, which at least means I get to go out for dinner and don’t have the clean up to deal with. Sigh.

        • TuuxKabin

          The clean up is phenomenal, so much fat and grease. At least we didn’t have to roast it. Schatzie, the money launderer, bookie, loan shark butcher down B’dway did it for us. Told us we need two for four people. We ate one. Pasta tomorrow and hopefully that’ll be the end of it.

          • Ragnar Lothbrok

            Wish I had a Schatzie around here.

          • TuuxKabin

            He’s one of those gruffer than gruff ol’ guys, huge, yells more than talks in a normal voice, but his goods are REAL GOOD, with a lot of side orders. I always have to ‘brace’ myself when I go in. Kind of a laugh, in small doses.

          • Joe in PA

            So, tell us how you know the butcher’s other professions? 🙂 Hmmmm?

          • TuuxKabin

            Hon’, the uh, characters in there picking up boxes of supposed turkeys and other securely boxed up items, mobsterettes and wanna bee’s. The black sedans, tinted windows and molls flittn’ about. Could have been a set for The Godfather Picks Up Thanksgiving Dinner, IV, sure. The clientele kind of tells all. Talking to neighbors about what we were doing, or did for Thanksgiving had eye brow raising responses when I told them. “You know Schatzie’s a front, don’t you?” was the first besmirchment I heard.

            Gosh. I hope I’m not liable for slandering him. Are you some kinda gansta dood? Tryin’ find me out? What I know? Nada. Nada fuckin’ thing I know ’bout that nice man Schatzie, such a mensch, that Schatzie.

          • Joe in PA

            I’m liking the NY accent. 🙂

          • TuuxKabin

            The Bronx accent, yeah, then Brooklyn, Flatbush, Jewish my favorites.

          • djcoastermark

            Wow, talk about one stop shopping under the neon lights on B’dway !

          • TuuxKabin

            Yeah,but don’t confuse the double parked dark cars, with tinted windows as UBER, LYFT, VIA or JUNO. And just so you know, the neon lights are way down town . . . ’bout fitty (5.0) bloks further down B’dway. Thanks Gawds and the good lard.

      I wonder why there is such a gap in response time if it is automated. Not doubting, just wondering how it works.

    Drumph trying to demand some affirmation for himself? ‘ Let’s have a poll only everyone has to think I’m ‘the favorite President’ and you can’t say anything bad about my fawning news network.’

  • Rex

    My fear is he’s only going to get worse since the GOP refuses to do anything about him. They are willing to let the entire country go down in flames.

    • Natty Enquirer

      Not the whole country. Just the 99 percent.

    Trump Wants Contest For Most Dishonest Fake News

    Here’s a contest he can actually win legitimately: the douchiest, most criminal person ever to occupy the Oval Office.

  • marshlc

    “not including Fox”

    This HAS to be performance art.

    • Scout

      he realizes that everyone would be all over Fox proving its fake news, and we can’t have that.

    • kareemachan

      He thinks *everything* is a reality show….

    • RemusL

      Fox News would still win the write-in vote, hands down.

  • Scout

    Doesn’t the “(me)” after “your favorite President” negate the whole thing? If he has to inform you via tweet of who your favorite president is, that is his acknowledgement that its more wishful thinking than reality.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      No, last time he tried to use “your favorite President” in a tweet, too many people were all “Grover Cleveland! Fuck Yeah!”

  • William

    Trump will win first prize.

  • Jerry Kott

    From what I have heard, European and other stable Governments around the world, see the US at this time with T45, as having a psychotic episode . However, he does represent the ignorant who see might as right. They make more noise than sense.

  • Gene Perry

    For god’s sake, you’re the President of the United States, not some cheap-ass game-show host!

    • DaMoldBrok

      Let’s not keep reminding him, his ego is big enough already! And, yes, he IS a cheap-ass game-show host!

      If he actually did understand the true concept of being the President, and all that incompasses the meaning, he would be in the corner of the oval office (okay, that’s funny, there is no corner) sucking his thumb, and whining about how hard it is.

      Nevermind, forget I stated that! Let’s get another case of wine (poor kidney), new stock of popcorn, and watch the Orange Orangutan in charge have a melt down in real time (hmmm, who would one call to clean up the feces that has been flung in OUR “Dump” White House?)!

    • Hal Witherspoon

      He would like to be both at the same time.

  • Tomcat

    The Whitehouse wins hands down.

  • Tomcat

    Trump actually thinks he is Omnipotent, Mueller has something to say about that however.

    • netxtown

      Is there such a thing as omni-impotent?….like a universally limp dick?

  • netxtown

    …or how’s about a contest for America’s Biggest Asshole?

    • DaMoldBrok

      Now, now! Everyone has one of those. We don’t want to insult anyone, you should state that he is “America’s Biggest Whole Ass”!

      There, now you can state a fact, that will not cause anyone to feel attacked or insulted. We must be polite, ‘take the high road’.

      Fuck it, he’s an asshole!

      • netxtown

        lol! that was a good ride!

  • Friday

    So, which of the many horrors of this “Tax Reform” looting and burning is he trying to distract from most, or is it the CFBP scam he’s trying to pull, maybe we should have a ‘poll.’ 🙂

  • mikeinftl

    And he would win another fake prize, he just wants to win at something. Sad.

  • Tomcat

    If I were to award Trump (Biggest Dick In Washington), would he think he had won something?

    • Jonathan Smith

      if it got him a Cover on a mag?
      yeah.

      • Tomcat

        The Koch brothers are working on that one.

  • BartmanLA

    It was pretty telling that he had to backtrack to single out exempting “Fox New” from this contest.Tragically he actually believes their “fair & balanced news” claims. Of course balance is relative when you keep putting your thumb on the scale to tip everything your way then try to claim everyone else is lying when they catch you at it. Does this ego maniac actually think he can keep trying to disabuse the public with his bleating that every other news agency is fake and only the ones that praise him are accurate? Pathetic and terrifying at the same time!

  • Ross
    • Jonathan Smith

      and he is sleeping the other 30%?

      • clay

        don’t forget golf!
        He’s been at a Trump property 1/3 of his days as pwesident.
        But then, he’s probably lying as he’s golfing, re his score.

  • Gerry Fisher

    Cheetolini, hon:

  • Robert Adams

    What a dilemma. It’s tough to decide between Breitbart, FOX or Infowars.

    I’ve got it! I’m voting for the daily White House Press Briefing.

  • Bambino

    Donald J. Trump was mentally and emotionally castrated by his parents the moment he was born. His is a sexually frustrated eunuch lashing out at the world. A severely damaged human being. He can’t formed any relationship. The women is either fuckable or ugly, the men either as loyal servants or losers/enemies. The 71 year old dotard is going in circle chasing after his own tail thinking that’s where real happiness is. No amount of money, properties or power he possessed will make an iota of difference on how a miserable, impotent, sad and lonely little man that he will always remain.

    • Jonathan Smith

      Harsh.
      I LIKE it!

    • KarenAtFOH

      Sadly, this applies in some manner or other to the 1/3 of the country that still likes him.

    • Renfield

      I hope so. Hopefully his real suffering will start with his prison sentence.

    • penpal

      Honestly, these are the stories the media and the Democrats should be running.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      Spot on. Goodly said.

    • RoFaWh

      I suspect that the truth is that Trump was mentally fucked up at birth. He was then, and is now, nuts.

  • BeaverTales

    Still trying to decide if Obama being born in Kenya or personally witnessing “thousands” of Muslims celebrating 9/11 in Jersey should win the fake news contest..

    • Tomcat

      Trump was there to witness both of those events.

  • bkmn

    • sadoldguy

      Days like this make me envy the dinosaurs.

  • SilasMarner

    Fox is the winner, hands down. We really don’t need a contest to decide who has the most fake news.

  • Richard B

    I am sure a psychiatrist can explain this, but the most fake news I ever experienced has been this year and it is 100% coming from our nutty POTUS who is complaining about it. Sad to say, in my 61 years of a good life, a life where a read constantly and traveled all over the country, Donald Trump is without a doubt, the most dishonest man I have ever seen in my lifetime. No one else comes close to his dishonesty and he is in a class of his own. His dishonesty knows no bounds. His verifiable lies can only be described as delusional and he is so invested in his world of lies, it scares the willies out of me that he will start a war or order a nuclear strike or use our intelligence assets and police forces against the American people who rise up and oppose him.
    Does anyone else feel this way?.

    • carrot festival

      But he makes the trains run on time and history tells us how well that works out. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/16388b11e0ab82782f78c4a49c61f69eda4d0336b0e544e61395ab55b930cb5e.jpg

        “he makes the trains run on time”
        as per his Thanksgiving chirp.

    • Dayglo

      Me, too. I’ve lived a long life and I’ve encountered scores of damaged, hateful, perverse, dishonest, childish and dangerous people, but this asshole takes the cake. He just brings so much misery and negative energy. What astounds me is not that Trump exists, it’s that he’s worshipped by so many who see him as a messianic figure.

      • Richard B

        You are exactly right. It is bad enough Trump exists, but his unyielding support that empowers him is really the root of the problem we should be dealing with. How many times has Trump done something so extreme and we would all think, well he is toast now and then the orange narcissist rises up like again like a zombie that can’t be killed. The United States is experiencing a deeply rooted mass psychosis like pre WWII Germany that lead to the rise of Adolf Hitler and it scares me to my core. Consider, Trump is very visibly and without shame promoting a unrepentant serial pedophile and sexual predator who is also one of our nation’s most vocal antigay bigots for the United States Senate. And most people would think such a candidate is so toxic, he wouldn’t have a chance in hell of winning, but, Trump’s political capital is so resilient, the unthinkable could very well happen .

        • Octoberfurst

          I agree totally. It seems like no matter what our man-child President does his base still loves him. Hell, he could start WW3 with China and they would still sing his praises amidst the radioactive ruin. I don’t get it. He really is a Messianic figure to a lot of people although I can’t for the life of me understand why. He’s obviously a mean-spirited, clueless, racist moron who thinks women are just sex objects but yet wingnuts still treat him like he is a God. It’s scary.

    • NMNative

      Since November of last year!

    • prixator

      He has absolutely no redeeming characteristics – either substantial or superficial.

      There is nothing about him where one can say, “well, at least he… [insert something at least minimally positive]”. Nothing but evil and ugliness, inside and out, top to bottom.

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    Favorite president? That man is seriously delusional.

  • Tomcat

    America would have to be the decider on fox news being left out or not.

  • Bluto
  • Reality.Bites

    What’s truly amazing about Trump is not that he doesn’t have the gravitas we expect from a President.

    Nor is it that he doesn’t have the gravitas we expect from a reality TV host.

    It’s that he doesn’t have the gravitas we expect from a reality TV contestant who’s eliminated in the first or second episode.

  • Bambino
  • Crystal Lynn Barcklay

    we
    all know why you don’t include fox in this contest. Because it would
    win as the most dishonest entertainment / supposedly news organization.
    at least cnn msnbc and several of the others you can say they are actual
    news with some entertainment.

    Yes, “not including FOX.” sigh.

    The more pathetic he is, the more his base loves him.
    Who knew it could ever get this bad ?

    • AmeriCanadian

      I knew it would be bad. I couldn’t have predicted the details but I knew the moment he was announced the winner. To tell the truth, I thought we’d be in a war by now, or in another recession. I guess I gave him too much credit.

  • DJ John Bear

    Desperate attempt to paint himself as a legitimate president…sad!

  • The_Wretched

    What a worthless president. Whining about his coverage is not presidential. Does he really lack for something substantive to comment on?!

    • -M-

      He has neither the knowledge nor intelligence to comment on anything.

  • clay

    He’s just so obvious. He can’t stand to tweet about “the President” without explicitly appending “(me)”. I’m surprised he didn’t add an exclamation point to that.

  • Nowhereman

    Not including Fox. Right. Donny, studies have already been done on this topic. People who get their news only from Fox are the least informed people in the country. But like any game he plays, he can’t win unless he lies and cheats and steals.
