    100% true.

    Trump said something, so the cult will obey even though all facts, evidence, logic and common sense says otherwise.

    Then why have you sided against Acosta?

    Not that hard to do. Trump is notoriously thin-skinned.

    ...he tries to steal the show every WH press conference by refusing to give up the floor and allow others to ask questions. Hes been doing this from day one, then he goes back to cnn and LIES and makes it up as he goes along.
    Except president man-baby didn't revoke Acosta's hard pass for those reasons. Instead, he's doing it based on a fallacious narrative involving a phantom assault on a defenseless woman. Once again, Trump and his supporters are embarrassing themselves by promoting and defending risible falsehoods.

    It’s odd to see a person argue with himself. It’s not often you see a person take all sides of an issue and do it so sanctimoniously.

    There is a right way and a wrong way to throw digs at your opponents. A classy, sophisticated person knows the difference. Trump is neither classy nor sophisticated, so when he throws a dig at someone, it's done in the most churlish way possible. He could learn a lot from Ronald Reagan, who was an absolute master of the classy insult.

    That was more an example of self deprecating humor.

    That really isn't the point now, is it?

    Now, either show where the post was edited by me, or $#@!ing apologize.
    One post that may have sounded racist. That's nothing. I expect a whole list of racial remarks. You can't do it. You're an embarrassment. As for an apology, $#@! off.
