When even the MSM talking heads are impaling you on your own BS, you’re up the creek with no paddle.

I have great sympathy for anyone who tries to deal with these swinish liars and thieves.
A walk through Trump’s talent pool would scarcely wet your feet.

Commie media keeps making things up and then submitting poor Trump aides to tremendous amount of pressure. No wonder they are starting to crack up and getting cancer and barricading themselves in their living rooms.

Great job, Poppy. Hopefully other reporters will follow your example in dealing with the white house liar brigade.

Sucks when a girl named Poppy takes out the deputy WH press secretary. “Hey Brian how’d you like getting beaten by a girl?”

So he points to trump not taking a salary as somehow paying taxes?

Pretty sure he used that as a write off for tax on the rest of his income. So not exactly a selfless act.

He seems to believe that if he talks fast enough, he won’t drown in his own flood and his dignity will survive.

It’s not hard
“Trump could easily disprove it by releasing his taxes , so you are telling us it’s true?”

How is it possible for anyone in trump’s orbit … paid or not… to have the least shred of dignity?

Saying “Hunter Biden” fully refutes the Times. Case closed.

Illusory dignity? :slight_smile:

If you say it three times and run around a graveyard, the world goes blurry and you wake up in the future T* Tower Moscow.

What I wish she’d asked is “If, as Trump says, there is nothing to hide in his tax returns, why he has fought fang and claw to keep them from coming under the scrutiny of a forensic accountant?” Still waiting to hear the answer to that one.

A simple story that most people can understand - seems like most of his October surprises and gaming of the election (dirt on Hunter Biden, etc.) are crashing into the ocean.

Behold the REAL October surprise.

They have none. Lack of dignity is a job qualification. Oh, hi Judge Barrett.
