Remember, fake news is just news that you do not want to be reported 

Courtesy of The Hill:

Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer is threatening to take legal action against The Associated Press over a report from the wire service about an incident on his book tour.

Spicer’s attorney Michael Bowe said in a statement Saturday night that the AP “recklessly republished a categorically false accusation about Sean Spicer.”

“The claim is a lie. Absent an immediate retraction, Mr. Spicer will take legal action Monday,” Bowe said.

It’s a lie?

Here is how the AP characterized the episode:

Spicer was at a book signing in Middletown on Friday to promote his new book reflecting on his time at the press podium for President Donald Trump.

Alex Lombard, who was standing behind a small group of people waiting in line to meet Spicer and get him to sign the book, called out Spicer’s name and said they went to Portsmouth Abbey School together. Spicer waved to him and said, “Hey. Yeah. How are you?”

Lombard, a Newport native who now lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts, then accused Spicer of calling him the N-word and trying to fight him when they were at school.

“You don’t remember that you tried to fight me?” Lombard asked. “But you called me a (N-word) first.”

A security guard approached Lombard and led him away as he kept talking: “I was 14 then. I was a scared kid then, Sean. I’m not scared to fight you now.”

A here is the incident caught on tape.


(The action starts around the 21-second mark.)

Okay, so what did the AP get wrong? 

This is the problem with members, and former members, of the Trump Administration, they seem to think that any news that places them in a bad light is somehow false. 

No Spicey, the light is not bad, it is revelatory. And what it reveals about you is what we have known about those who associate with Donald Trump all along.

    If I would have been in that line, book in hand, “sign it, Love Melissa McCarthy” and carted off as well.
    Who the hell do these people think they are?

    Trump’s economic victory lap is full of embellishments and exaggerations
    Some people (read: Donald Trump Jr.) are just straight lying about it.

    Thank you for proving exactly who you are, Sean, like we didn’t know already.

    “Dirty Rubles”: Trump is “gravest existential threat” to America in 150 years

    …The crimes of Trump are much worse than even many of his opponents believe. How deep does his criminality run, and what should Americans realize, especially those who feel “bored” or confused by the Russian collusion story?

    I think it’s hard for people to square the avuncular guy on TV who cracked jokes and fired people with the real Donald J. Trump. The truth is, the guy’s been mobbed up for decades, with ties to both La Cosa Nostra and Russian organized crime. Trump is a money launderer for the latter, and has been for quite some time. “Money laundering” sounds cute, like something Danny Ocean and his merry men do, but it’s a euphemism for something unspeakable. The Russian mob has become so vast and successful because it eagerly participates in the worst of the worst: human trafficking, child pornography, sex slavery, opioids, illegal arms deals, blood diamonds — all the grisly, awful stuff that Trump accuses MS-13 of doing. By taking those dirty rubles and making them legitimate, Trump is a party to all of that.

    The media also likes to forget that Trump is a serial rapist and sexual predator. We can use the “allegedly” qualifier if you like, but he has bragged about this on many occasions. There are more than 20 accusers now, and I believe them.

    The kompromat, by the way, does not involve tinkling Moscow prostitutes, but far more heinous activities. This is a person who sexually assaulted a reporter from People magazine at his house — while his wife was home. You don’t think he’s capable of greater depravity halfway around the world, when he thinks no one is watching?

    …Real estate is a good way to launder money, as Trump well knows. Another is campaign finance. So much dark money, so many ways to donate anonymously. It seems clear now, given the latest round of indictments, that Russian money was funneled into the Republican National Committe via the NRA and other avenues. Anyone who took that money is complicit. This is why the Paul Ryans and Dana Rohrabachers and Devin Nuneses of the world have gone to great lengths to throw water on the Mueller investigation, in my estimation. And why so many GOP members of Congress are retiring. They are not trying to save Trump; they are trying to save themselves.

      Exactly. It does not take a critical eye to see so.

    Devin Nunes threatens Twitter for lawfully censoring conservatives: ‘We’re looking at any legal remedies’

    As a private company, Twitter presumably has the right to control who uses its platform.

    Watch the video below from Fox News.

    Meet the ‘reply guys’: Obnoxious Twitter trolls try to challenge prominent women — and fail miserably

    For women on Twitter, unwanted male attention is as rampant online as it is in the physical world. But a specific subset of male users, known half-jokingly as “reply guys” due to their propensity for replying to prominent women in pseudo-flirtatious terms, have concocted new ways to bother, challenge and otherwise take up women’s time.

    They can be found in the replies to any tweet posted by a Twitter-verified female journalist, as well as those of many others who aren’t endorsed in such a way by the website. They come in three general forms: the overly-familiar men attempting (and failing) to flirt; the layman attempting (and failing) to challenge the ideas of professionals; and the men who insist on mansplaining a woman’s own ideas back to them.

    Trump says the media puts the ‘lives of many’ at risk in Twitter rant

    …“I will not allow our great country to be sold out by anti-Trump haters in the dying newspaper industry,” he continued. “No matter how much they try to distract and cover it up, our country is making great progress under my leadership and I will never stop fighting for the American people!”

    Trump then decided to pick a fight with two specific publications.

    “As an example, the failing New York Times and the Amazon Washington Post do nothing but write bad stories even on very positive achievements – and they will never change!” Trump wrote, referring to the newspaper owned by Amazon’s Jeff Bezos.

    The president’s Sunday afternoon screed came after he and the Times publisher, A.G. Sulzberger, released contrasting versions of their White House meeting on July 20.
