"Whether the video is real or not, the threat is real; that's what the President is talking about....and those are real no matter how you look at it..."

Effectively she's saying, "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour, but if you feel threatened by your neighbour, then it's ok,"
Is anybody surprised at this point that the Trump admin thinks that lying is acceptable?

^ Yes, I guess no-one by now, Maajo.

Their latest flat-out lie has just been exposed:-

Defending the proposed Tax Bill, Steve Mnuchin, Trump's Treasury Secretary has repeatedly said, "...hundreds of people are working round the clock..." refering to his Treasury staff double checking the figures and projections of the Tax Bill.

The reality? "Those inside Treasury's tax office,which Mr.Mnuchin has credited with running the models, say they have been largely shut out of the process and are not working on the type of detailed analysis he describes....Treasury has not released a dynamic analysis showing that the tax plan would be paid for with economic growth [as Mnuchin claims] because one does not exist."

Not doing your homework is one thing, but that sounds like criminal negligence, like the designer of the Titanic saying,"Oh yeah, we have people checking the lifeboat capacity against the passenger manifest right now."

The cuts don't do **** for any of us in the working or middle class either. Go figure, the billionaire isn't in it for the little guy, but a lot of little guys voted for him.

Flynn pleads guilty after being given a pretty sweet deal.
