Trump Blasts Washington Post for Fake Neil Gorsuch Story

The Washington Post ran a story in their newspaper on Tuesday claiming that, for a while back in the early days of his presidency, Donald Trump was seriously thinking about withdrawing Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court. Reason? Because Gorsuch supposedly said some unflattering things about the president to Democrat Sen. Richard Blumenthal when making the rounds on Capitol Hill. Between that and being perceived as not “grateful enough” for the nomination, reported WaPo, Gorsuch almost found himself pushed aside for another nominee.

But in a tweet on Tuesday, President Trump said that not a word of the story was true.

“A story in the Washington Post that I was close to ‘rescinding’ the nomination of Justice Gorsuch prior to confirmation is FAKE NEWS,” wrote Trump. “I never even wavered and am very proud of him and the job he is doing as a Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. The unnamed sources don’t exist!”

This was one of those stories that we knew was fake even before the president weighed in. How did we know? Well, because the story ITSELF admits it!

Here’s the headline: Trump Talked About Rescinding Gorsuch’s Nomination.

Okay, that’s sure to bring in the clicks. The only problem is that if you read the whole article, you won’t find ONE INSTANCE where the reporters talked to anyone who said Trump said any such thing!

“Trump, according to several people with knowledge of the discussions, was upset that Gorsuch had pointedly distanced himself from the president in a private February meeting with Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), telling the senator he found Trump’s repeated attacks on the federal judiciary ‘disheartening’ and ‘demoralizing,’” reports the Post.

The next paragraph is the sole mention of what the headlines claims:

“The president worried that Gorsuch would not be ‘loyal,’ one of the people said, and told aides that he was tempted to pull Gorsuch’s nomination — and that he knew plenty of other judges who would want the job.”

Immediately after: “It is unclear whether Trump’s ‘explosion,’ as another administration official described it, truly put Gorsuch’s nomination in jeopardy or whether the president was expressing his frustration aloud, as he often does.”

That’s the flimsy reporting on which this story is based. One anonymous aide told the Post that the president angrily ranted about Gorsuch’s comments to Blumenthal…and that’s about it. This isn’t a story, and it certainly doesn’t warrant the headline that the Post ran with. Trump was not seriously thinking about pulling Gorsuch’s nomination and they know it. This is clickbait of the worst kind, and the Washington Post should be above this sort of mindless fake news.

Emphasis, of course, on “should.”

  1. Washington POST sources are far more trustworthy than anything that Mr. Trump says. When Mr. Trump speaks, you know that what he is saying is either untrue or just boasting. He is never inspiring, never articulate and never accurate.

  2. This is NOT Fake News. That would be flattering. There is no News in this nation since 2016 began…no Journalism…only propaganda. The MSM only LIES, and their LIES are slander & libel…NOT protected under 1st or any other amendment! Trump needs to sue these liars and SHUT THEM DOWN!

    • They would just call him Hitler and get the leftist judges to agree?

      This where they get their leads.

          Thanks for your service, and Merry Christmas!

      • David:
        Love the picture ! This is why I call that fish wrapper “The Washington Pots”. (no typo)

    • I agree but lately even conservative sources must be checked before you buy into or share information. CNN and MSNBC lie and when caught usually do not give an apology. Their delusional or just pathological liars at work with an agenda to destroy a legally elected President while ignoring the endless crimes committed by the last administration. MY first choice for President was Dr Carson and Trump was my second, he has tried to help the nation economically and with national pride. Thanks Stephen for an honest comment and shared opinion I agree with. Respectfully

      • It also bares mentioning: President Trump is leading this nation back to God,our Creator. Unashamedly, without hesitation. He’s returned our pride as a people, a nation and is instilling the acknowledgement we are a nation Blessed with the Living God.

        • I know he praises the influence of God in our nation and lives. He praised the influence of believing in God by the nation’s forefathers.

        • And he unashamedly and humbly asks Christians to pray for him. We can’t let him down.

          • He’s a godly man who follows the principles of Christ. He is faithful to one woman (out of three), he is humble, he accepts and loves the poor, he’s never profane or vulgar, he works hard on his non-golfing days, feeds the hungry, shelters the homeless, and shows true respect for all. Jesus would vote for Trump.

          • I believe you are being facetious, but just in case, here are some facts: Christ never bragged about grabbing women. He also taught against divorce, of which Trump has had two. Trump was committing adultery by sleeping with another woman before one of his divorces was finalized. He also lies all the time, which is very well documented. To say that Trump follows the principles of Christ is BLASPHEMY!

          • TheRealLibertarian

            Try changing the channel sometime headonstraight….get a different perspective. The only lies being told are by the liberal “media”…they constantly peddle some new “bombshell” report about Trump that is always some hearsay or “anonymous source”. Go ahead and watch your precious CNN, but change the channel to Fox every now and then just to get your “headonstraight” bud…

          • Dear Mr. HeadOnCrooked~~President Trump is not perfect, neither are you, nor am I. God uses imperfect people to do His will. If He didn’t use flawed people, there would be no one to use. God used King David who was an adulterer and a murderer; He used Abraham who was a liar and actually gave his wife to the Pharaoh; Matthew was a hated tax collector; Paul murdered Christians; and on and on……. Jesus is very real to Pres. Trump since he has had to take on the entire world. No, Pres. Trump is far from perfect but he is forgiven.

    • It was further back than that! Try from 2007/2008! Thet covered Obominations A-S better than a semi full of “Depends”!!

      • Go further back, Wild Bill Clinton, pervert extraordinaire.

        • EVERY OFFICE INCLUDING THE OVAL OFFICE HAS STRANGE DNA IN THEM INCLUDING MONICA’S AND GOOD OLE BILLY BLOW HIMSELF. THE CLOSET AND VACANT OFFICES AND ROOM COULD YIELD SOME REAL STORIES IF WERE TO GET OUT. EVEN THE PRESIDENTIAL LIMO’S COULD PROVE TO HAVE BB HIMSELF ON THE BACK SEATS AND CARPET. HE WAS HAVING THAT WANG STRETCHED EVERYDAY BY SOME BIMBO- AND DO YA THING OLD WRINKLE SNATCH DID NOT KNOW A THING ABOUT IT. NOTHING IN WASHINGTON GOES UN NOTICED – EVERYTHING IS THERE -IT JUST GET COVERED UP AND PAID OFF FOR SILENCE. OLE BILLY BANG’UM ALL HAD 3 LITTLE BLACK BOOKS OF BIMBO’S HE COULD CALL FOR SERVICE . NO SHORTAGE OF LIPS ON THE TOP AND BOTTOM. I GUESS THE OLD SAYING IS TRUE THAT ” RANK HAS IT PRIVILEGES”!!! BB SURE HAD HIS PRIVILEGES! AND WE HAVE NOT EVEN SCRATCHED THE SURFACE OF THE DEPTH OF BB’S MASSED BIMBO’S OVER THE WORLD AND 3 BLOCKS AWAY FROM THE WHITE HOUSE. GO BILLY BJ GO!!

        • Clinton just continued what he did as a Governor.

        • You are 100% PLUS correct!!! What I meant and blew it was the LSM (Lame Stream Media) could not have fallen on the sword any more or faster for Oblowme! Seems like Obomination was handing out script’s for their next News(?) program!

      And in yet another story about the total absurdities of Congress, Nancy Pelosi, the “Master Legislator” herself, is “URGING her colleagues to vote on the Continuing Resolution to fund the government to the rest of the year, triggering a government shutdown (which includes non-essential employees only) that they can then blame on the Trump Administration UNTIL (get this):

      The GOP is willing to “MEET DEMOCRAT DEMANDS” which, of course means DACA and an alleged “fix” to Ovomit-Lack-of-Care!!

      “Master Legislator” MyAss!!!!!

      She is willing to shut down the government, making millions of Americans SUFFER NEEDLESSLY until the Democra*s get their way, and SHE has then UNMITIGATED GALL to call that the “art of Master Legislation?”

      Give me a break.

      • Thought she said she was a “master baiter”. Seems that she would do much better at that, than what she is doing.

        • HAS ANYONE LOOKED AT THOSE FUNBAGS SHE’S GOT FACING THE FLOOR- I’LL BET SHE WAS A POPULAR WENCH AROUND THE HALLS OF THE CONGRESS WHEN THEY FACED FORWARD INSTEAD OF THE FLOOR LIKE NOW. I WISHED I WERE A FLY ON THE WALL AT NIGHT WHEN SHE UNLEASHES THOSE OLD JELLO SHAKING WRINKLED UP FUNBAGS . I’D LIKE TO SEE JUST HOW FAR THEY GO BEYOND HER NAVAL AFTER THE SAFETY STRAPS ARE REMOVED. I JUST BOUGHT 2 MILK COWS LAST WEEK- AND ONE OF THEM HAS A WORKING FUNBAG THAT LOOKS LIKE HERS. I THINK I’LL NAME HER “NANCY FUNBAG” . SHE EVEN RESEMBLES A JERSEY MILK COW IN THE FACE- AND MY COW HAS NOT HAD 12 FACE LIFTS THAT FAILED. MY NEW COW HAS A PRETTY FACE- HECK HER BUTT IS PRETTIER THAN NANCY’S FACE!! NOW THAT IS WHAT IS CALLED FUGGGGGLY!

          • check your keyboard, caps lock stuck? third button up on left…

          • DID YOU THINK FOR ONE SECOND THAT I WAS GOING TO JUMP IN SUCH A HURRY AS TO BREAK A LEG GETTING TO THE KEYBOARD AND SHUTTING OFF THE CAPS LOCKS? YOU HAVE GOT TO BE INSANE TO EVEN TO OF THOUGHT THAT ONE THROUGH BEFORE TYING IT OUT! WHAT MADE YOU THINK THE WAY I TYPE IS OR WAS ANY OF YOUR BUSINESS? ARE YOU SOME “OFFICIAL” UNOFFICIAL ENFORCER OF THE ETHICS RUES ON THIS FORUM. I’LL BET YOU GO AROUND FLASHING A FAKE BADGE TO LITTLE KIDS AND OLD PEOPLE TRYING TO BE A BIG DEAL. OOPS.

I HAVE EARNED MY STRIPE IN LIFE AND ON THE OUTSIDE AND DON’T NEED OR REQUIRE SOME INTERNET ENFORCER OF UNWRITTEN RULES TO TELL ME ABOUT ANYTHING UNLESS I ASK FOR IT. THANKS AGAIN AND HAVE A TERRIBLE WEEKEND.

          • There is no “unwritten rule” about the rude and childish practice of typing in all caps on forums like this. But is is universally acknowledged that it is bad form and impolite to do so. And when the message is vile and insulting–as yours are–then the offense is double.

          • Now it’s my turn to laugh, damn, that was funny.

          • If you really believe that obscene drivel was funny, then you seriously need some psychological counseling.

          • Yeah, I’ve got a sense of humor, comes from listening to libtards. Your baloney for example. Try laughing sometimes even if you don’t agree, a sense of humor is good for the soul.

      • NANCY HAS A VERY HARD TIME REMEMBERING HER NAME AND WHAT DECADE SHE’S LIVING IN,I REALLY CANNOT UNDERSTAND HOW SHE HAS NOT BEEN FORCED TO RESIGN ESPECIALLY AFTER SEVERAL PRESS CONFERENCE’S WHERE SHE ACTUALLY WAS TALKING AND HER STATE OF MIND WAS IN ANOTHER DECADE, SHE KEPT CALLING OUR PRESIDENT BUSH! AND I’M TALKING ABOUT SHE NEVER EVEN REALIZED OR STOPPED AND TRIED TO CORRECT IT,SHE HAD NO IDEA THAT SHE WAS MAKING THE MISTAKES! AMERICA WILL FIND OUT VERY SOON THAT NANCY HAS BEEN ALLOWED TO CONTINUE WORKING EVEN AFTER HER DOCTORS HAD TOLD HER SHE WAS SUFFERING FROM DEMENTIA! ITS SO OBVEIOUS THAT SHE’S BEEN CONFUSED FOR A WHILE.

        • I have noticed that. VERY TRUE. But, her daughter or one of her other children will take her place when she finally leaves or drops dead.

        • You have to admit that when she loses her train of thought, that pregnant pause is hilarious, and the next words she speaks are even funnier. What a jack wagon.

    • For Trump to call ANYONE a liar would be a 50-gallon pot calling a one-ounce kettle black!

      • Did you ever play football or any other sport? Locker room bullshitting is common, it is not proof of events, and is usually just to get a laugh. So if this is your evidence, it would never stand in a courtroom, or rational conversation.

  3. The Washington Post and NY Times were once reputable newspapers where Americans could get the truth about what was happening in this country.
    Now they’re both Propaganga Rags full of lies, and not fit to buy or read.
    Bezos and Soros are using their billions against America.
    They wanted Hillary as President, and open borders for America. They’re also providing lawyers for protesters, whose goal is to divide America using racism.

    • Conservatives need to quit supporting Amazon. Besos is CEO and hates President Trump and his Deplorables. I unsubscribed to Amazon’s ads and they wanted to know why. Guess they got the message that as long as Besos is their CEO I would not ever buy another thing. It takes a little longer to search other web sites, but I have managed with no difficulty in purchasing everything that I have been looking for elsewhere.. Walmart, Home Depot , Lowes, etc etc would appreciate the business and maybe Amazon and above us all Besos would get the message.

      • I might agree, but the others are just as bad, so what is a real alternative?

      • SINCE ALL THE CRAP FROM THE COMMIES I HAVE NOT BOUGHT A THING FROM AMAZON AND WILL NOT- IF I CAN’R FIND WHAT I WANT FROM THE STORES YOU MENTIONED- THEN I GUESS I DON’T NEED THE CRAP IN THE FIRST PLACE.

  4. it would seem that the leftist twats at the washington compost are doing their best to surpass the leftist twats at cnn when spewing fantasy stories…then moron putzes like jimmi acostahole talk schit about Trump savaging the 1st Amendment….Sorry you clowns and your fantasy stories are NOT covered by anything in the constitution other than the right not to be shot on sight for being a stupid ahole….that dubious protection covers all morons regardless of sex, creed, color, race, genetic background, lack of schooling, and other indicators of mental illness..like voting for kenyan boyo, the ho clintoney,and other democrapo aholes too numerous to list here..

  5. This must of been what Tom Hanks was pissed about saying that they would not film the new movie that he’s involved with at the white house if they were invited,WELL TOMMY BOY I’M PRETTY SURE PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS NO INTENTION OF INVITEING YOU AND THE CRAZY LIBERAL BUDDIES!!!LOL OH AND DID’NT YOU JUST GET BACK FROM AN INCREDIBLE CRUISE WITH OBAMA,MICHELLE AND OPRAH,,,WELL US MIDDLE CLASS FOLKS CAN’T AFFORD THOSE KINDA VACATIONS BUT THE GREAT PRESIDENT TRUMP JUST PASSED A TAX BILL THAT WILL GET US MIDDLE CLASS FOLKS MORE CASH IN OUR POCKETS STARTING FEBUARY 2018 AND YALL ELITE’S CANNOT STAND THE POSSIBILITIES OF US MOVING UP A LITTLE CLOSER TO YALL RICH ELITES!!!!

FEBUARY 2018 IF THE PAYCHECKS ARE A LITTLE MORE WEEKLY ALOT OF WORKING CLASS DEMOCRATS THAT HAVE BEEN SMEARING PRESIDENT TRUMPS NAME WILL BE APOLOGIZING AND LEAVING THE DEMOCRAT PARTY AND JOINING THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND THAT WILL ONCE AND FOR ALL GET RID OF THE EVIL DEMOCRATIC PARTY!!! LOL GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP HE IS DRAINING THE SWAMP AT A RECORD PACE AND MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN JUST LIKE HE PROMISED!

    • 10 FRIGGIN 4 TO THAT!!!

    • In 2019 more than half of the net tax benefits will go to the Top 5% wealthiest people, & by 2027, 83% will go to the Top 1%. By that time, most people will be paying more than they do now. In other words, the Republican Wealthcare Plan B bill does little to no good for middle & lower income people. Virtually all the benefit goes to giant multinational corporations & people making over $300,000 per year. And our federal debt will be that much more enormous & unmanageable, preventing us from taking on the severe crises we face.

      We should be doing pretty much the opposite of what this bill does. We should be focusing on reducing the debt, putting spending money into the hands of those who are now struggling to make a living, which would help small business, & figure out how we can tackle the grave crises we face today. A smartly designed tax bill that would exempt the first $40-50K in income from taxation, & build up progressively higher taxes in each successively higher tax bracket would help do all of these things.

      • how do you feel about how Obama drove our national debt over $10 trillion dollars,more than all the 43 previous presidents combined since our nation began!! So i know you gotta hate him with a passion or either you should not be writing about our federal debt and severe crisis we face.Please tell me that you are not a Obama voter who is trying to discuss federal debt and i will take your statement serious,i’m waiting on your reply if you did not help drive America’s debt up $10 trillion dollars in 8 short years when it took 43 presidents 240 years to do the same thing,can’t wait to hear from you,,,,that is if you are not a Obama voter therefore being the biggest reason America has this massive debt.

        • True! When I see a “NEWS” person so concerned about 1.5 trillion over 10
          years, I want to slap them and say ” wake up dummy, where were you when
          over 2 trillion per year was pissed away by Obama??” 150 billion/year is small
          and probably wrong to boot. Our economy is the only way out. YOU CAN”T
          BORROW YOUR WAY OUT OF DEBT!!! The only way you can cut taxes for
          some one is that they are PAYING taxes to begin with. Liberals seem to believe
          that ALL money belongs to the gov. and if they don’t take it from you,
          that’s a gift! They also don’t comprehend that you can’t tax a business. It is
          passed through to its customers and/ or workers. I would like to see ALL taxes
          taken off businesses, and see how many move here. talk about jobs!!

          • And where were they when Reagan tripled the debt during his administration & Bush Jr. turned our first surpluses in decades into record deficits within 2 years?

            You’re so right that you can’t borrow your way out of debt, but that’s what the Republican Party, aka the Borrow & Spend Party, is all about.

          • “Trippled the debt”, A trick amswer. If the debt was $1, and he added
            $2 to it, no big deal. Trippled!!! Obama only DOUBLED the debt, so
            in the mind of a liberal, he’s the best! Never mind it was $10 trillion,
            (reagans was in the billions, (1000 times less).Ain’t math great!!

          • Reagan tripled the Gross Federal Debt from $900 billion to $2.7 trillion. It took 31 years to accomplish the first postwar debt tripling, yet Reagan did it in eight. Then Bush Sr. nearly doubled the debt, Clinton turned record deficits to surpluses by the end of his administration, then Bush Jr. turned the surplus into record deficits within 2 years, & the economic mess including Great Recession that he left for Obama forced Obama to spend a lot more in order to save major institutions & keep the recession from becoming a depression, & then eventually Obama whittled down those deficits. Trillions of dollars you attribute to Obama are actually Bush’s doing, just as the robust economy we’re experiencing now are due to Obama’s wise economic policies. Republican presidents have a habit of leaving their successors economic crises, & you can bet that’s what Trump will leave for his successor.

        • Thanks to the horrendous economic mess that Bush left Obama, deficits were forced to skyrocket in order to keep that Great Recession from becoming a depression. Ever since then, Obama has had to struggle to reduce the deficits to about a third of what it was during its peak. I wish it were lower, but first priority was getting the economy back to growing again, which Obama did. Now that it is booming again thanks to Obama, we should focus on reducing the deficit & eventually the debt.

          I might also point out that during his administration, Reagan tripled the debt, & the Bushes nearly doubled the debt each, Junior turning the first surpluses in decades (thanks to Clinton) into record deficits within 2 years. You guys hate to hear it & refuse to acknowledge it, but it’s well-known that the economy does far better under Democratic presidents than it does during Republican presidents, whether you measure economic growth, number of recessions, debt, stock market rise or just about anything else, which is why many economists who used to support trickle-down economics are now against it..

          • The Bill Clinton I remember did not believe the budget
            could be balanced. Don’t you remember him saying that
            the budget “can’t be balanced” in 10 years?! And it took
            a Republican congress ,(Newt) to actually balance the
            budget, THEN Clinton and his admirers (you included),
            gave HIM the credit! Get ALL of your history right. Bill
            was dragged kicking and screaming to balance it. Both
            parties like to spend. I am 76 and remember Newt and
            the republicans did balance the budget, I SAW it and
            have watched the repubs spend crazy too. We need some
            different people in government.

          • No, that is false. He & his Cabinet worked with Congress to balance the budget & ended up with a surplus in his last year or two. Clinton prided himself in being a centrist, especially on fiscal & corporate matters, & that surplus at the end of his term was a huge source of pride for him.

            He moved the Democratic Party to the center right, about where the Republicans used to be, while the Republicans moved to the extreme right, & left a huge vacuum in the left side of the political spectrum, which Sanders tried to fill, but was blocked from any real power by the Clintonian corporate establishment.

            But I will agree with you that our government is now virtually completely lacking in fiscal conservatives.

          • Oh, by the way, some of what Clinton did, which too many other presidents (& congressmen) have done, looked good for our economy in the short term, but in the long run was harmful. That’s another thing lacking in recent politics is any long-term thinking. It used to be an important consideration pre-Reagan if not pre-Nixon.

          • We must be from 2 different planets. I was alive and well when I heard Clinton say he could not balance the budget. Gingrich gets the credit for balancing the budget.The House, which originates all spending, was republican! Clinton opposed balancing the budget,
            sorry, but Merry Christmas anyway. (How do you ignore Clinton’s opposition? It’s history!)

          • Yes, we do seem to be from different worlds, but I remember Clinton working with his Cabinet & Congress for that balanced budget. How Republicans allowed Bush to sabotage those surpluses with those tax cuts, I don’t know, but it’s unfortunate how Republicans have subordinated fiscal responsibility for increased revenue for the wealthy, which in every case it’s been tried before has hurt the economy. Now there’s nobody in the Republican Party that stands for fiscal discipline.

            I’ve noticed that right-wing media keep repeating untrue propaganda over & over until their listeners have substituted it for actual history, & I think that’s why you & others remember differently.

            Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to you, too!

          • I don’t rely on memory, Old Chinese saying ” a short pencil is more
            accurate than longest memory!” Find a reliable source, you will find
            that what I recall about balancing the budget is accurate. But on taxes
            I have a complaint that you may share; hidden taxes that impact poor
            people, imposed by the gov., along with stupid . regulations, and ALL
            political parties are guilty. The poor pay a much larger percentage of
            their income than anyone else due to hidden taxes.And when gov runs
            a deficit, it is NEVER too much spending, always not enough taxes. Been
            that way all my life.

          • Snowflake obama had 8 years and drove our national debt up $10 trillion dollars,need anyone say more about how incompetent OBUMER was as president lol!

          • Reagan really started us on this debt rollercoaster by tripling our debt, mainly through the institution of supply side economics, including cutting taxes greatly on the very wealthy.

            In order to prevent the Great Recession that Bush left him from becoming a depression, Obama was forced into a high amount of spending to save many major institutions from bankruptcy. The economy during the first year or so of any administration is largely the work of the previous administration, which drew up & signed the budget for that first year, & is also influenced by whatever economic momentum that was built up at the end of the previous administration, which in the case of the transfer of power from Bush to Obama was highly negative, but in the case of Obama to Trump, was positive & growing in strength. This fact should be obvious to anybody who lived through & observed it, but people on the right are constantly subjected to propaganda that distorts & makes up facts in order to tear down the left & convince people to support their corporate-friendly agenda & overlook how corporate executives & other billionaires are taking control of all wealth & power, & many are willing to believe these lies over their own eyes.

          • Thank God we got the GREAT PRESIDENT TRUMP for 8 years so we have 9 years of 3% to 5% GROWTH and obama’s 2%!

THANKS PRESIDENT TRUMP,&SHAME ON YOU 8 TIME LOSER OBUMER!

      • Bullshit.

        • Another person deceived by right-wing propaganda, I see! Are you going to seek out the truth or just continue to bask in the deception of right-wing propaganda? The choice is yours.

          • I have 3 friends i know personally that work for at&t and they showed me bonus checks they just recieved ,cold hard cash that they were so grateful to be getting because the Trump tax bill that was just signed into law and come febuary 2018 all working class americans checks will increase ALL BECAUSE OF PRESIDENT TRUMP!!!

          • There are none so blind as one who “WILL NOT SEE”. Google
            Clinton budgets, read Cato Institute, and others, and see what
            really happened. You write like a 45 year old liberal.

      • DUH!,So, the people who benefit the most will be the ones who are
        actually PAYING taxes. How do you give a tax cut to a person who pays
        no taxes?. You cleverly overlook the top 2 % are already paying 50%
        of the taxes.

        • And they have an even greater percentage of all wealth.

          Taxes need to be progressive in order to alleviate the huge disparity of pay & other economic forces that favor the wealthy over the poor. The highest paid member of an organization, usually the CEO, used to be paid 40-50 times the amount as the lowest paid employee, which already seems very lopsided to me. But now it’s grown to 300-400:1 ratio, which is simply criminal.

          If somebody isn’t paying taxes already because of a low or non-existent salary, then that person will obviously not be contributing any less to our treasury if exempt, but will probably need some financial assistance somehow.

          One of the most important things to anybody is security, be it financial security, health security, food security, personal security or national security. Republicans are all about taking away safety nets of the poor & middle class, while diverting more & more money to giant multinational corporations & the already opulent. So you have a huge & growing proportion of American citizens with nothing, while a very small portion has everything.

          • Again, what planet?? It is not a crime to be wealthy. You seem to be
            very envious of wealthy people. I am not one, poor all my life, but I
            do not envy people who are “honestly ” wealthy.I have wealthy
            friends, and they are all good people.I also know some a–h-les who
            are wealthy, some who I’m not sure how it happened.Wealthy people
            are not what’s wrong, with our country,

          • I don’t blame wealthy people. I blame the politicians who cater to the interests of wealthy people & corporations over all other considerations. The system is so rigged for the very wealthy & against ordinary citizens, letting our already highly uneven wealth scheme get even more lopsided.

  6. The WPO LIES AGAIN! Ny household pets won’t pee on the WPO, that’s never happened before with a newspaper, no surprise!!!

    • With respect, the NYTimes once world renowned is a piece of poop. The editors are either libtards or influenced by their hatred of all whites. The use of unknown sources gives them the chance to print crap. After an entire year of hate Trump news daily 247, and still Trump supporters realize we are living through a period when propaganda and lies are the norm for news. I agree with your comment.

    • Highly intelligent pets!!!

  7. OUR COUNTRY HAS LOST ALL MORALITY AND COMMONSENSE- IT SEEMS LIKE AND IT HAPPENED OVER NIGHT. THE CAMPAIGNS OF THE PAST ELECTION WAS NASTY AND DIRTY BEYOND ANY ELECTION I HAD EVER SEEN IN MY LONG LIFE! THEN WE HAVE THESE SO CALLED WOMEN TRYING TO DESTROY EVERYTHING IN THEIR PATHS BECAUSE OF A GUY MAYBE DID OR DID NOT TOUCH ONE OF THESE SO CALLED WOMEN OR FEMALES ON SOME PART OF THEIR NOT SO INVITING PARTS OF THEIR UGLY LOOKING BODY PARTS. TO ME, THEY SHOULD OF WRITTEN THEIR NAMES DOWN AND PHONE NUMBERS SO THEY COULD GET THE SAME JOY AGAIN AS BACK THEN. SOME OF THE THESE “BEAUTY’S” WOULD HAVE A HARD TIME GETTING ME TO EVEN SHAKE HANDS WITH THEM NOW EVEN AT MY AGE. I WOULD BE AFRAID I’D GET SOMETHING FROM THEM. SOME OLD CREEPY CRAWLY BUG OF SOME SORT. SOMETHING THAT THE ELDERLY DO NOT NEED ANY MORE OF!! BUT THEY ARE GETTING THEIR 30 MINUTES OF FAME AND MOSTLY FORTUNE AND TO SEE THE MEN AND THEIR CAREERS GOING DOWN THE DRAIN EVEN BEFORE THE EVIDENCE OR TESTIMONY THAT THEY WERE LOOSE WOMEN IN THE DAY AND NIGHTS OF QUESTION. THE MEN LOOSE THE CAREERS AND THE ACCUSERS- DON ALL THE 40 YEAR OLD MAKE UP THEY COULD NOT THROW AWAY IN FEAR THEY COULD NOT FIND THE MAGIC INGREDIENT IN TODAY’S BODY FILLERS. THEN THEY GET ON THE NEWS SHOWS AND PRETEND THAT THE WEATHER BEATEN HIDE IS THE SAME AS 4 DECADES BACK.
    THEN THEY GET ON THE NEWS SHOWS AND BLUBBER AND PRETEND TO CRY TO GET THE ATTENTION OF CERTAIN HIGH PROFILE ATTORNEYS TO TAKE THEIR LYING ASS CASE. 40 YEARS + HAVE GONE BY – FOLKS THIS NATURE AND LIFE DEAL- WE ARE BORN TO DO THIS ITS A 2 WAY STREET. WOMEN ARE BORN WITH THE “HORNY BUG” JUST LIKE MEN AND DO IT WITH ALL THE REVELING BLOUSES- ALL THE WAR PAINT TO MAKE THEMSELVES NOTICED- AND I FORGOT THE SHORT SKIRTS TO THE POINT OF KNOWING IF SHE HAS A FRENCH CUT OR JUST NEEDS A TRIM.
    AND THESE WOMEN SIT THERE AND TRY AND PORTRAY THEMSELVES AS LITTLE MISS INNOCENT. THAT’ S A CROCK OF BS TO SAY THE LEAST. I THINK THE TABLES NEED TO BE TURNED ON THE DAY JOB WHORES AND THEY SHOULD BE ACCUSED TO THE SAME THING BY THESE MEN. DESTROY THEIR OFFICE FLIRT CAREERS AND FOR THE BIMBO’S THEY ACTED LIKE TO GET THE MEN TO FLIRT-TOUCH AND GET ALL WORKED UP FOR!!
    NATURE BUILT MEN TO POPULATE THE WORLD- AND THESE HUSSIES TOOK IT TO THE MAX. THERE IS NOT A MAN ALIVE THAT DID NOT GET SUCKED INTO THE BLACK WIDOW’S WEB OF WOMEN DRESSING LIKE STREET WHORES IN THE OFFICES AND BUSINESSES OF THIS COUNTRY. THEY USED THIS TO GET JOBS THAT THEY WERE NOT QUALIFIED TO EVEN BE AT THE FRONT DOOR OF. BUT THE MALE BOSSES TOOK THE CANDY THEY WERE OFFERING AND PUT THEM IN POSITIONS – WHEN MOST COULD NOT DO THE JOB OF TYPING I’M DOING WITH 2 BROKEN AND SHOT UP FINGERS.
    SO, I WANT TO KNOW – WHEN AND WHERE ARE THESE BIMBO’S THAT GOING TO TAKE THE RIGHTFUL PART IN THIS DEAL? FOLKS THIS THE REASON WHY THESE WOMEN CAME TO THEIR JOBS LOOKING LIKE STREET HOOKERS WAS TO GET THE EYE OF THEIR BOSSES- IN HOPES OF A NIGHT IN THE HAY AND A NEW MORE EXPENSIVE CLOTHS TO KEEP HIS ASS ON THE HOOK!! AND THE HUSBANDS KNEW WHAT THEIR WIVES WERE WEARING- AND PERMITTED IT TO HAPPEN TO GET HER IN A MORE MONEY MAKING POSITION-SO THEY ARE IN THIS AS DEEP AS THE WOMEN WERE FOR LETTING THEM DRESS AND ACT LIKE STREET HOOKERS WITH ALL THE TRIMMINGS THEY COULD PACK BETWEEN THE SHOULDER AND KNEES. NATURE MADE THIS A 2 WAY STREET- HE GAVE THEM THE ABILITY TO FLIP THEIR EYES AND HE GAVE THE GUY THE ABILITY TO EVALUATE THE DRESS AND EYE FLIPPING AND MAKE A NOT SO GOOD DECISION. AND IF THEY SAW IT WAS NOT WORKING -THEY JUST STEPPED UP THE MAKE-UP- RAISED THE SKIRT HEM -LOWER THE CLEAVAGE PLUNGE LINE ADD ANOTHER POUND OF MAKE-UP TO SEDUCE THEIR MALE OFFICE PERSONNEL. AND NOW AS USUAL THE MALE COUNTER PART TAKES IT BETWEEN THE PROVERBIAL ASS CHEEKS. THIS IS JUST NOT RIGHT. DON’T GET ME WRONG- THEIR WERE WOMEN WITH MORALS AND SOME OF THE MEN DID GO AFTER THEM ANYWAY. BUT ALL MY YEARS IN THE JOB MARKET I SAW MANY MANY MORE OFFICE HOOKERS THAN I SAW REAL PROFESSIONAL WOMEN ONLY WANTING TO DO THEIR JOBS RIGHT AND NOTHING MORE.. THESE WOMEN DESERVE THE RESPECT THEY DESERVE! THE OTHER ONE’S DESERVE NOTHING BUT WHAT THEY NEED IS A SWIFT KICK IN THEIR FLABBY OLD ASSES AND SENT BACK TO THE OLD FOLKS HOME WITH THEIR CLOWN MAKE-UP BAGS OVER THEIR BONEY MARONEY SHOULDERS!!

    • Accusation of sexual assault the new weapon of the democrats to return to power, everyone with their camp is a victim or wants be victim, sexual assault, racism, sexism, victoms of phobias, being poor victim, being a woman victim. Then guess what it is all Trump’s fault, no hate crimes reported his about creating some them blaming others? Being a victim is good business plus you are not responsible for your own behaviors. No one said sexual assault is not a crime, thus make believe accusations should carry penalties.

      • Make believe accusations should carry severe penalties. Just try making accusations against men in power in Islam. Women would find out what Shari Law really stands for!

    How to spot UFO illegal aliens? They all wear sombreros.
    Jeff Sessions gave a secret order. ssshhhh. THE FBI Party is second rated two levels below the Mexican police. The new tax bill benefits only the rich. The Clinton’s will be allowed to bring the offshore profits back from Russia. More Democrats than Republicans Sit on 10 Richest Members of Congress List. Ask Nancy Pelosi how much she pays Jose to prune the garden. When he asks for a raise she turns him into immigration. Beware communists bearing gifts.Please democrats don’t kill the kids for Christ Mass.
    THIS SHOW IS DEDICATED TO TWO KIDS WHO WON’T SEE CHRISTMASS.

  9. The once-reputable and trustworthy big city newspapers (Washington Post, New York Times, Chicago Tribune, etc.) have all become nothing more than sensationalist tabloids pushing their opinions and agenda rather than giving unbiased reporting. Best plan is to not buy or read these excuses for journalism.

    • Chicago Tribune-???? reputable???? You must be even older than I am. I left the Chicago area in 1987, they were not that good even back then

  10. Unprecedented comment by Stephen How – President Trump Must Take a ‘Pause’ ‘immediately’ Be Clear who is who all around him – congress – senate – they are “Our True Enemies – Clean Our Own Inner House as Sovereigns – “Shut Them All Down Now.” This Cannot Wait. Why did President Trump nominate Matthew Petersen – We need to know why – it is not enough that Petersen withdrew. Our Sovereign Nation and Liberty ‘Must’ be ‘Cleansed’ what better and more significant time than between Hanukkah & Christmas! President Trump: Clean Your House! Why has Paul Ryan Resigned – What is the Truth? Leave – Never Return: Not So Fast: Ryan is an Evil Creature – did President Trump put pressure on him to finally leave? Again, not so fast: Ryan must be taken to task for all the evil and filthy lies and “Agenda” he has pushed on our nation – his alignment with the Clintons – Bushes – Goldman Sachs: President Trump: Your Most Significant Present to Our Nation and Liberty for Hanukkah & Christmas: Pray to G-d – Clean Your Own Political House – Congress – Senate and Take Down Goldman Sachs – the Evil Rothchilds – Bank of London and Talk about the B.A.R. – British Allegiance Registry – Evil To The Core!

  12. WHEN IS THIS BS GOING TO END? TO ME, EVERY TIME THEY THE DEMOCOMMIES PUT ANOTHER LIE OUT FOR THE COUNTRY TO THROW UP OVER- I DISLIKE THE BASTARDS MORE AND MORE. INSTEAD OF TAKING THEIR ASS WHIPPING LIKE A MAN- THEY CONTINUE TO STOP THEIR FEET AND THROW THEIR TEMPER TANTRUMS AND I DISRESPECT THEM MORE AND MORE EVERY TIME THEY PULL THIS CRAP. I HOPE THE REPUBLICANS DO REMEMBER THESE ASSHOLES WHEN AND IF THEY EVER GET CLOSE TO THE WHITE HOUSE. I HOPE THE REPUBLICANS DO EVERYTHING TO SUBVERT AND DISRUPT THE PLANS OF THE COMMIE THAT GET IN. I HOPE THEY TAKE THEIR PISSED ON AND OFF TO THE VERY NECKS OF THESE COMMIE BASTARDS. HANG THEIR ASS FROM THE FROM POLE OR TREE.

  13. WAPO IS FAKE NEWS AND LIERS ON TOP OF THAT.

  14. They are not going to stop! Just the other day Sec. State Tillerson replied RIDICULOUS to a question about his going to resign!

  15. If the polls are so much in favor of the DEMOCRATS why is it the Republicans are out raising them in money? November reports were just published,

  16. Anyone who believes anything in the Washington Post is a fool

  17. I’LL TELL YOU THE SAME THING I TOLD THE OTHERS WITH A HARD ON FOR MY CHOICE OF TYPING STYLES. YOU HAVE YOURS AND I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY ABOUT THE WAY YOU TYPE. IF I DO NOT LIKE YOUR TYPING STYLE I’D JUST PASS YOUR ENTRY UP AND GO TO THE ONE’S I LIKED AND YOU SHOULD DO THE SAME. YA JUST DECIDED TO JUMP ON THIS FORUM AND THE FIRST RATTLE OUT OF YOUR ASS IS TO TELL ME ABOUT SOMETHING THAT IS IN THE FIRST PLACE NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS TO START WITH. JUST MIND YOUR BUSINESS AND PUSH YOUR AGENDA TO SOMEONE WHO GIVES A CRAP. I DON’T CARE IF YOU LIKE THE IT OR NOT. THERE IS NO WRITTEN RULE THAT SAYS I AM IN VIOLATION OF A FORUM RULE. YOU AND THE REST OF THE FORUM BULLIES GET THEIR ROCKS OFF BY JUMPING ON SOMEONE YOU HAVE NEVER SAID SHIT TOO!!
    YOU HAVE HEARD A STOOGE SAY HE IS THE INTERNET ETHICS RULES ENFORCER. THERE IS NO RULE WRITTEN OR OFFICIAL THAT A PERSON HAS TO FOLLOW THE REST OF THE BULLY STOOGES OF THE UNOFFICIAL AND UNWRITTEN RULE OF THE ETHICS OF THIS OR ANY OTHER FORUM. I GUESS IT EASIER TO BE A FOLLOWERS OF SOME STOOGE THAT DISLIKES HOW ANOTHER FORUM PERSONS WAY OF TYPING. I WISHED I HAD THIS AMOUNT OF TIME TO SPEND ON SOMETHING THAT IS NONE OF MY BUSINESS TO START WITH.. SEE HOW EASY THAT WAS!!! NOW DO WHAT YOU THINK YOU NEED TO DO THERE BUSY BODY!!

  18. Kind of ironic this rag disparaging another’s story by calling it “clickbait”, but I suppose it’s as much of an expert on clickbait as anyone.

    The story sounds true enough as far as its attributions to Trump, even if the interpretation of his remarks may (or may not) be incorrect, since that is very typical of how Trump speaks about anyone who dares imply any criticism toward him. I would certainly not take the word (“fake news!”) of the con-man-in-chief about anything.

    The corporate mainstream media’s obsession with Trump is what helped Trump get in, & Trump plays the press better than anyone, so I wouldn’t feel the least bit sorry for Trump. I would feel sorry for the press though, because their appetite towards sensationalism (& nobody sensationalizes better than Trump) has tarnished their reputation, creates & increases doubt about their credibility & fairness, shunts real & important news to the side, & has put the fundamental democratic principle of freedom of the press in jeopardy to where it can be manipulated & distorted by unscrupulous demagogues & extreme ideologues for their own purposes, which we constantly see happening. But even more of a loser than the press is the American people, who have no real power in this government of the corporation by the corporation & for the corporation.

  19. I’m sick of news that uses unnamed sources.

  20. Apparently, the only people who assign any credibility to the WaPo, CNN, and even ABC, CBS, and NBC, are people who want to hear negative stuff concerning the POTUS and the Republican administration. And the Hildabeast was not voted for because of her great “virtue”, but because some people always vote Democrat without even researching the candidates, and some people wanted a “woman in the White House”, which is probably why she almost won.

  21. TOO BAD THAT THE MEDIA IS SO STARVED FOR MAKING NEWS THAT THEY RESORT TO LIES, COUNTER LIES, AND ACTUALLY MAKE THEMSELVES LOOK VERY UN-PROFESSIONAL, WHICH THEY HAVE DONE FOR QUITE A FEW DECADES……

  22. An unnamed source has repeatedly said that Barack Obama was a participating member of the Communist Party until he decided to be a politician. FAKE NEWS. I wonder if WaPo would have printed that even if it were true.
