B/c he said that he promised to ask her “in the middle of the debate” that hasn’t occurred yet. The whole story was premised on making a bet in the middle of a debate between him and Pocahontas. Listen to his words, which you say are so important. Yes, they are. He didn’t say he was making the bet, and she didn’t take him up on it.

If I say to you, that in a future post, I’m going to bet you that the Republicans win the Senate and the House, then I haven’t made a bet until I actually do that.

But this argument distracts from the main points, which I’m sure you and Ian Millhiser want to do.

Pocahontas probably had to think long and hard about whether to go public with these results, but knowing she has the MSM on her side, you decided to go for it.
Drumpf got caught with his pants down again and won't own up to it. Boo hoo so sad.

If it makes you Lefties feel any better, Shep Smith made the same Fake News claim about Pocahontas as Wolf did earlier.

He showed the tape of the speech but cut out the part about saying he was going to do it during a future debate.

Fox News is Fake News every weekday between 2 and 3 pm central time.

The important news here is that most Americans are minorities as defined by the new standard of 1%.

No more diversity issues. No more discrimination claims. No more racial quotas.

No more White privilege! B/c no one is White. It’s a thing of the past!

"Want to know what media bias looks like?

Warren releases DNA results that confirm that she misled employers, students, and the public for years.

All too many members of the media treat it as if she _proved_ her claims.

It’s nuts."
Watch your mouth! You are in danger of suppression of the media. This is America

He can pretzel around or score an easy "win" and make the donation. If he's as bigly rich as he says, it should be a no-brainer.

I decided? Yes. Warren decided this only after consulting with my old friend Ian and I.
Funny how details don’t slip past you except when you want them to.

I meant “she” howie. Not “you”. I wrote “she” in my head. Apologies to you and Ian.

Fox News is at least somewhat honest every weekday between 2 and 3 pm central time.
FIFY. I take it that's when you switch to CNN?

He made a bet with her. He can man up and pay it off and make himself look good. Or he can be petty and deny it. It's not shocking he's choosing the later. Just dumb. There's a 90+% chance he'll never be in a debate with her. Wiggling out of manning up and paying off his bet is small and petty. Sad!

Of course it is. Did she exaggerate the extent? Yes. But it's still true.
No it’s not. I’m not sure where you’re getting your news on this (well...). But it’s not proof.

Sure it is. She had the DNA test. Your YAHBUTs can't change that.....and your right wing fringe sites can't disprove it.

You can argue what degree Native American she is if you want but it definitely seems someone in her family had a braid fetish.
Technically Indian is dot not feather so he was correct lol, but by the Warren standard I think I'm going to March down to mystic and demand casino money

Uh oh. Real Native Americans are not happy with Pocahontas. Pawpaw would be sad... if he existed.

https://dailycaller.com/2018/10/15/elizabeth-warren-cherokee-nation-inappropriate/

The Cherokee Nation called Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s use of a DNA test to justify her claim of Native American ancestry “inappropriate” on Monday.

“A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship,” the Cherokee Nation said in a statement released Monday. “Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation.”

They added, “Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong. It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens.”

Warren released the results of a DNA test over the weekend that revealed she is between 0.09 and 1.5 percent Native American and has at least one Native American ancestor between 6 and 10 generations back.

The results of Warren’s test did not connect her with any specific tribe, and Carlos D. Bustamante, the Stanford University professor who conducted the test, was unable to use Native American DNA. Native American DNA does not exist in researchers databases because tribal leaders discourage members from participating in genetic testing. (RELATED: The Scientist Warren used Didn’t Test With Native American DNA)

“To make up for the dearth of Native American DNA, Bustamante used samples from Mexico, Peru, and Colombia to stand in for Native American. That’s because scientists believe that the groups Americans refer to as Native American came to this land via the Bering Strait about 12,000 years ago and settled in what’s now America but also migrated further south,” the Boston Globe reported.

Are you Lefties still going to debate this Fauxcohontas thing?

https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/10/elizabeth-warrens-native-american-ancestry-spin-media-fell-for-it/

Do you want to know what media bias looks like?

Earlier today, Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren released DNA test results that confirmed that she misled employers, students, and the public about her Native American heritage for years. Bizarrely, all too many members of the media treated the results as vindicating her. Down is up. Black is white. The imperatives of the resistance apparently dictate propping up a liar — as long as she might be able to beat President Trump in 2020...


I can’t wait for the Democrat Primary debates.

Fauxcohontas vs Spartacus vs Crazy Bernie vs Women are to be believed Gillibrand...

That will be tv ratings gold...for Republicans.

https://townhall.com/columnists/benshapiro/2018/10/17/democrats-know-they-can-always-count-on-the-media-n2528998

...Only one simple fact: Warren knows, as everyone in politics knows, that the media will cover for nearly any instance of leftist political manipulation. They'll cover for Warren fibbing about her ancestry. They'll cover for Texas Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke driving drunk, plowing into a truck and then attempting to flee the scene of the crime. They'll cover for Arizona Senate candidate Rep. Krysten Sinema saying that she didn't care if Americans joined the Taliban (CNN's headline: "Krysten Sinema's Anti-War Activist Past Under Scrutiny as She Runs for Senate"). Democrats have the enviable advantage of being able to trot out nearly any story and be given credibility by most of the mainstream media.

Non-Democrats, however, see this game. And every time the media simply parrot Democratic talking points on issues like Warren's ancestry, they undercut their credibility. Large media institutions have done more than anyone, including President Trump, to destroy their reputations with the American people. Their pathetic behavior over the past few weeks, in the approach to the 2018 elections, shows that they're doubling down on stupid.

There is a problem with the MSM continuing to quote Trump on them being the “enemy of the people”. It’s not what he says.

https://www.dailywire.com/news/37704/associated-press-says-trump-calls-media-enemy-joseph-curl

"Trump says media is ‘Enemy’ after shooting, bomb plot," the Associated Press reported around 9 a.m. Monday morning. The article said:

President Donald Trump on Monday accused the media of being “the true Enemy of People” in the wake of a mass shooting and a mail bomb plot.

Trump tweeted: “There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news.” He added that the media “must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly.”

But something jumped out right away. Why the partial quote? Why did the AP edit Trump's posts on Twitter? And why didn't the news service include the tweet itself?

The answers were quite simple: Because what Trump said and what the AP wanted to say Trump said were two completely different things.

Here's what Trump said (and we'll run the two tweets he posted, too):

"There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news. The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People, must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly. That will do much to put out the flame..." the first tweet said. The second finished the thought: "....of Anger and Outrage and we will then be able to bring all sides together in Peace and Harmony. Fake News Must End!"

Media Tout 'Jewish Leaders' In Pittsburgh Telling Trump He's Not Welcome. They're Lying. Those 'Jewish Leaders' Are Professional Progressive Activists.

Here’s the real headline: Rabbi Jeffrey Myers of the Tree of Life Synagogue told CNN this morning, “The President of the United States is always welcome. I’m a citizen. He’s my president. He is certainly welcome.” That’s not going to get the same kind of media coverage. It’s no wonder why.

Trump has News Derangement Syndrome that could have him institutionalized. We'll just call it NDS. It's seriously gotten to the point that it just blurts out of his mouth if it doesn't sound like what he heard on fox news. Very sad.

Even if you can parse his words in this instance, he absolutely has said the Press is the enemy of the people before. That is shameful and folks on both sides should call it out, not Yeahbut it.

The majority of news media is an enemy of the people just as much as the DeepState is.

Real news about news that is fake.

https://www.dailywire.com/news/37865/associated-press-makes-another-colossal-error-joseph-curl

The AP has lately been running fast and loose with facts. Just this week, the wire service wrote this headline: "Trump says media is ‘Enemy’ after shooting, bomb plot."

Here's what Trump said:

"There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news. The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People, must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly. That will do much to put out the flame..." the first tweet said. The second finished the thought: "....of Anger and Outrage and we will then be able to bring all sides together in Peace and Harmony. Fake News Must End!"

So Trump never "accused the media of being 'the true Enemy of the People." Instead, he said, "The Fake News Media" is "the true Enemy of the People." There's a big, big difference. But for some reason, the AP decided to omit that and instead claim that Trump said all media are the enemy.

And once again, the "fake news" media is simply proving Trump's point.

A) You already posted this point. Like 3 days ago.

B) The problem is that Trump calls almost every media outlet other than his sycophants fake news. He's accused Google, NBC, NYT, the AP, Washington Post, CNN, etc of being Fake News. It's a distinction without a difference.

C) You'll notice that Daily Wire says that AP said Trump said "all media," but of course they didn't.

Actually, it’s a different article that included the AP’s fake news about the Trump children receiving birth right citizenship. The AP’s fake news was retracted. I just liked the last part of the article.

I’d have to repost this a hundred times to make up for the constant whining by CNN about Trump calling the news media “enemy of the people”. Which isn’t what he said.
