    It should be noted that there are about 5-6 of you that post over and over and over and over about how Trump can do no wrong too and do exactly the same thing.

    I've seen Earle complain about Trump a lot lately. Hard to image him as an Auburn fan.
    Yep, I was an Alabama fan long before most on this board were born. I am an Independent, fiercely independent with strong libertarian views on a number of issues, particularly in the area of individual freedoms. However, I recognized early on that Trump was psychologically unfit for the Presidency, and he's working hard at proving me right. You have to face the fact that many have binary minds and can only see black and white. Everyone must be pigeonholed. It's stupid, but to each his own...

    Yeah, but that's not "fake news" like CNN, CBS, NBC, etc...

    Since "fake news" meant "anyone who's critical of me," "VERY fake news" sounds downright ominous, given the other developments...

    The beatings will continue until morale improves.

    HUD official fired for criticizing Trump

    A political appointee at the Department of Housing and Urban Development was fired for an op-ed he wrote before the election that criticized then-candidate Donald Trump, a source with knowledge of the situation told CNN.

    In an October op-ed for The Hill, Republican consultant Shermichael Singleton said Trump was taking the Republican Party to a "new moral low."

    "We allowed that hostile takeover to happen on our watch," he wrote. "This individual recognized a moment of great disparity in the Republican base and, like cancer, attacked and spread, consuming everything in his path."

    Singleton's piece criticized Trump's rhetoric about African Americans during the campaign. After the election, the 26-year-old worked with Ben Carson during his confirmation process to become HUD secretary. Singleton, who is African American, then joined the department as a senior adviser.

    But on Wednesday, he was brought into the chief of staff's office and fired, the source familiar with the situation told CNN. Singleton was told he was being dismissed because of the op-ed and was escorted from the building, according to the source, who also said Carson was surprised by the move and only learned of it after the fact.

    Re: The policy and politics of Trumpism

    This was apparently just posted a little while ago & then deleted not long after. Only surprising thing is that it was deleted.



    Perhaps someone in his inner circle decided they needed to slow down the roll out of his facist rhetoric.

    ETA- My bad he just turned around & reposted it with more news agencies listed.

    So now the independent press is an enemy of the American people, if not the state? And such enemies must be fought, I presume? For the safety of the American people, one would assume.

    Good God, how far is the GOP willing to let this go?

    CBS and ABC made the revised tweet as enemies.
