Donald Trump

Dan Rather just went on national TV to accuse Trump of a crime you won’t believe

Published

Disgraced news anchor Dan Rather is willing to do anything to regain relevance.

So in the era of Trump, he has become one of his most vocal critics, at least on networks that will allow him on.

And he just made his way onto national TV to accuse Trump of a crime you won’t believe.

While President Donald Trump has the difficult job of leading America through the coronavirus pandemic, fake news networks are using this time to attack him.

MSNBC is among the most vicious attackers, with CNN working every day to outdo them.

In a recent airing of MSNBC’s AM Joy show, host Joy Reid talked to former CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather about Trump’s handling of coronavirus.

It isn’t shocking that they both feel he has failed, despite the fact that Trump has taken more decisive action than any other world leader.

Reid began the discussion by launching an insanely loaded, and long-winded question at Rather.

Her question began with a preface regarding an article by Jay Rosen about how Trump’s handling of the pandemic mirrors the thinking of Norman Vincent Peale.

Peale was a minister who popularized the idea of positive thinking, which argues that continued stating of positive things make people believe that things are positive, regardless of if they are or not.

The argument made is that Trump’s plan to re-open the country is an attempt to make people believe things are okay, which the mainstream media with their fear-mongering agenda clearly disagrees with.

After this preface Reid finally got to a question, stating:

“The overall point of what he wrote is the plan really is to talk Americans into thinking that it’s okay. That it’s okay that 80,000 people or 100,000 people are dead, that the 33 million unemployed is all fine and just get people to believe that with happy talk rather than actually solve the problem. What do you make of that?”

Rather naturally agreed, saying, “Well, that’s exactly what it is. It’s a full-power effort using the pomp and circumstance of the presidency to accentuate the positive and try to eliminate the negative or at least to diminish the negative.”

After stating that Trump is a believer in the positive thinking philosophy, he argues that his belief is so strong that he is willing to “normalize thousands of deaths.”

“Donald Trump is a believer,” Rather said. “It’s pretty hard to argue right now but argue, I would say, every decent person regardless of their political affiliation has to do because we cannot, we must not normalize thousands of deaths, which is what the president is attempting to do for his own political purpose. He’s accentuating the politics, diminishing the science for his own political benefit. At the same time preaching, I’m saying everything is all right, folks. Don’t worry about all these deaths.”

Of course, this is nonsense.

Trump’s plan is backed in fact, with state’s like Georgia, which are re-opening finding decreases in deaths.

But because Rather doesn’t agree, for political reasons, Trump naturally is trying to normalize death in the eyes of the Fake News Media.

Do you approve of Trump’s handling of coronavirus?

    I would love to see how well the Monday morning quarterbacks would have handled this crisis. Apparently, most of the leftist would not have halted Chinese travel, letting in many infected travelers. Biden called the President xenophobic. Nancy Pelosi invited everyone down to China town and party, 🙄 They’ll use any crisis to try to discredit Trump.

    Oh Dan, all the decades working to establish your name as a household brand of reporting, only to crap all over your legacy. Now just an old washed up journo who sacrificed everything for hyper-partisanship for a dying ideology…..
    Congratulations Dan, isn’t there something you would much Rather be doing at this time of your life?
    What a Ignoramus, what a buffoon, what a stooge…..

    When they finally are able to fully investigate this coronavirus and we know it’s origin and especially it’s spreading to the UnitedStates we will find that the Democratic Party knew about the virus before anyone else in this country. The Chinese government spoke to them and it was kept quiet because an economic disaster is EXACTLY what China and the Democratic Party wishes for.

    I wonder what they think Mr Trump means when he says every time , without fail, when the number of deaths is mentioned, even 1 death is too many. I think someone has to be almost without a soul to not see how devastated our president is with what China unleashed on our country and the world.

    I doubt most Americans know what the “deep state” is or how far it reaches. It actually includes ALL American politics and as well as institutions such as the now infamous “news media” or as Rush calls it the drive by media, but otherwise known as fake news. If it were not for the obvious reason that all the deep state dislikes if not hates President Donald Trump simply because he’s NOT the kind of corrupt politician they’ve known and loved for many decades, another reason would obviously be just too many (so called) Americans in that deep state are not faithful Americans, in other words traitors and that includes much of the American electorate who put communists in Washington to represent them. No other comment or observation is needed or necessary.

    While Trump was hard at work trying to prevent deaths and now is hard at work at trying to save the economy that the Chi-Com virus took a huge bite out of, while the Blue State Democrat Governors and the Pelosi House are trying force the Federal government into paying off their reckless spending and overblown government pension funds that are unfunded.

    Dan Rather is another news hack that should have been tried for creating fake documents to over throw a President. Remember the fake GW documents he and a democrat operative created? They were proven all lies.

    Another person who is a Trump hater and since he is no longer a journalist I believe his comments are not relevant to anything concerning President Trump. He should have learned by now not to be so disrespectful to the president as there are enough current journalists with negative and rude remarks that the president has to contend with and the public does not want to hear from him. We have a President who works probably 16-18 hours a day for the American people and does not take a salary and look how he is treated by the liberals. It’s disgusting and shameful.

    As usual the Democratic Party and all their TRUMP HATERS are at it again! They were mad as Hell when he shut down the tRAVEL and then waited awhile and changed their tUNE to HE should have shut it down sooner. The DEMOCRATS and THEIR TRUMP HATERS as it was stated before somewhere:”If President Trump himself found a CURE for CANCER the DEMOCRATS would say he”s trying to hurt the Pharmecuitical and Cancer Treatmeent Centers from Operating.

    The left wing politicians phony left wing news media will stop at nothing (including bringing our great country to extinction) to get political power back to the Democrats. Their actions and activities from the beginning of President Trumps term have been nothing but evil and destructive.

    Democrats do what their good at. They actually believe their own spew. Dan Rather is FECKLESS and irrelevant. They point fingers, whine, are full of hate and actually an embarrassment to our country. Hillary should be in prison or hanged. Pelosi, Schiff, Schumer, Obama and all of their cronies should be arrested for conspiring to overthrow the government. That is treason folks. At this point, any American who votes for a democrat in 2020 is either blind and deaf, brainwashed or brain dead.

    I personally believe the Trump Administration is doing everything possible to give us the information we, as Citizens need to protect ourselves. Short of declaring a complete shutdown and taking into custody all who blatantly ignore the advice of Doctors what else could he and his administration do?

    Personally, I believe it’s up to each person to “Police” themselves and those they love. Unfortunately, not everyone uses common sense nor do they all respect other people around them while out.

    After all I’ve read, researched and seen, I’d have to say, Trump is a better man than all of them. He has compassion, does care, and has proven himself by his works…which are positive. All the Dems and media have proven is hate, lies and care for no one. That simple!

    A true leader understands that it is important to let people know that the present circumstances are temporary; things will be better in time. How much time depends on what the situation is. Also, when more people help the faster things can improve. Unfortunately in our present environment some are being anything but helpful! Harmful would be the better word for them…makes one wonder where what’s best for our country fits in…or, does it even fit in at all with some??

    Hate is a strong word but love is more powerful. Jesus taught us to love everyone. Someone wished that Dan Rather would die which reminded me of a situation when my daughter was playing in a softball league as a twelve year old. The daughter of the coach of the team she was on did not like my daughter and did so many things to provoke her. I went to the president of the league and asked that my daughter be moved to another team. After I told the president why I wanted the change made he allowed it to happen. One day as my daughter’s new team was playing a game this coach’s daughter and another girl came over and sat in the stands in front of me. When it became my daughter’s time at bat she was holding the bat wrong. She had the predominant hand on the bottom instead of on the top. The girl told her friend, “I hope she breaks her wrist”. I told the girl that just because she doesn’t like my daughter she should not wish any harm to come to her. The girls then got up and left.
    Did you really wish Dan Rather would die or was that a heat of the moment thing? If that was a wish then you are worse off than Dan Rather. Before cable TV or satellite there was only network news and CBS was the better of the 3 networks. Many times I would be upset with the news commentator and Dan Rather was no exception. I don’t like liars.

    President Trump lies with impunity! Unfortunately, when a crisis arises, we needed a President that everybody could believe and trust. With the President’s record of lies and deceit that was patently impossible. That left us stuck with a President whose modus operandi is to lie his way out of any situation. Because his base (You guys!) will always believe that their emperor is more like Jesus Christ than Vladimir Putin, he knows that he can insist on his normal lies and attacks and wait till the next ‘crisis’ comes along. But once again, unfortunately, this crisis is too big to lie your way out of even though, you guys are doing a great job of trying . Kudos for that! Just think about it, President Trump has NEVER TAKEN RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY MISTAKES EVER! He DOES THINK THAT HE IS JESUS! And you people are aiding and abetting this ANTI-CHRIST! You have been warned and God knows that you know! Give up the lies and the false-worship of this evil man! Even if we can save one of you from eternal damnation – it will be worth all the normal insults! I will pray for you all and I would appreciate your prayers for me! Thank You!

CNN’s Don Lemon tried to humiliate Donald Trump. But he just failed miserably in a hilarious fashion

Published

on

CNN anchor’s regularly go after the President instead of reporting the news.

In fact it’s become a daily occurrence to simply attack Trump for everything from his hair to his hyperbole.

But this time, when Don Lemon tried to humiliate Donald Trump, he failed miserably in a hilarious fashion.

It seems on most days that the CNN newsroom is just filled with a number of so-called “journalists” looking to see how leftist and anti-Trump they can be.

In fact, our Pants on Fire analysts often think they must have some sort of internal contest or bet to see which one of them can be the most outrageously anti-Trump.

That would at least explain the vitriolic attacks on the President by these supposed “news” anchors.

And it might explain why Don Lemon tried so hard to discredit the President recently.

In a hilariously funny, and failed, attempt to mock President Trump, Don Lemon began nonchalantly discussing his results of a cognition test.

It turns out Lemon couldn’t tell the difference between a hippopotamus and a rhinoceros.

A recent article by RedState the whole embarrassing event is explained perfectly:

“In the end, it’s not that big of a deal that Lemon missed a question my pre-K son would get right. It’s funny, but not that big of a deal.”

They went on, “What makes this newsworthy is the venom that Lemon constantly spews and was attempting to spew during this segment. Why is he wasting airtime trying to bash Trump for talking about taking a cognitive test?”

Lemon’s attempt at attacking the President followed Trump’s taking the test in response to criticisms (mainly from the left, and of course the media) he had been receiving about his mental faculties.

Redstate and others quickly pointed out that this was just one more indicator of just how anti-Trump the network had become.

“It’s his network that’s been obsessing over Trump not taking one. He took one and now he’s not supposed to talk about the results?”

The fact is CNN and their fellow news operations simply can’t say anything positive about the President.

Trump could end all wars, find a cure for both cancer and the coronavirus, and give everyone a million dollars from his own money, and CNN would report that Trump needs to release his tax returns.

That is just the state of the Fake News Media today.

That’s why outlets like Pants on Fire News are so important.

One lie about Antifa riots just blew up in the Democrats’ faces

Published

on

Antifa rioters laid siege to the city of Portland for 60 straight days.

Left-wing domestic terrorists attacked federal law enforcement and tried to burn down a courthouse.

And now one lie about Antifa riots just blew up in the Democrats’ faces.

The Fake News Media continually lies to the American people about the riots in Portland and other Democrat-run cities by calling them “largely peaceful protests.”

Fake news reporters adopted this rhetorical posture because they want to undermine Donald Trump’s “law and order” re-election message.

Violent protests are breaking out across the country as left-wing rioters set fire to federal property, try to blind law enforcement officers with powerful lasers, and hurl mortar sized fireworks and other dangerous projectiles at federal agents in an attempt to maim or kill.

These attacks on city and federal property and law enforcement are anything but “peaceful protests.”

But Fake News Media reporters support the rioters’ political goals and hate Donald Trump.

That’s why the fake news falsely claims riots are “peaceful protests” and claim anyone who says otherwise is just trying to spread hysteria and fear.

These violent riots have nothing to do with racism or police brutality.

They are acts of domestic terrorism.

And Democrats worry that the American people will see left-wing radicals waging an insurrection in the nation’s cities and vote for President Trump.

That is why the Fake News Media is lying about these riots and falsely claiming they are “largely peaceful protests.”

Pants on Fire News will keep you up-to-date on any new developments in this ongoing story.

Meghan McCain shocked everyone on The View when she shot down one anti-Trump lie

Published

on

While it isn’t saying much, Meghan McCain is the most conservative co-host on The View.

Despite this, she often attacks President Trump.

That’s why she shocked everyone on The View when she shot down one anti-Trump lie.

If there is one thing everybody can be sure of, it is that the Fake News Media will pick up their anti-Trump attacks exponentially going into the November election.

They have already spent the last three and a half years of his presidency attacking him constantly, using fake news stories.

One of their most recent lines of attack have come from a book written by Mary Trump, who is the niece of President Donald Trump.

Mary Trump has a long history of feuding with her family, even suing her dead grand-father, Fred Trump, because she was only awarded $200,000 in his will.

Despite this, the Fake News Media takes her new book, titled Too Much and Never Enough, entirely seriously and have brought her on for dozens of interviews.

Her book makes a lot of heavy accusations against Trump and his family, including that she has heard President Trump use the “N” word, and anti-Semitic slurs.

This is a doubtful claim considering that Mary Trump has not even been able to produce a single photo of her and the now-President.

That’s why when she came on to The View, Meghan McCain challenged her on her book, challenging his legitimacy.

When Mary Trump first came on, she was handed heaps of praise, with co-hosts Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Whoopi Goldberg thanking her for her book, and sending heaps of praise her way.

But McCain didn’t give her the same praise, and instead hit her right off the bat, telling her that she doesn’t find her book very “legitimate.”

“At the end of the day you get a really good paycheck out of it but I don’t think it’s that legitimate. What do you say to people like me who think this is just a great way for you to get a paycheck right now?” McCain asked.

A visibly offended Mary Trump insisted that she has “deep experience” in the family because she is the President’s niece.

But McCain wasn’t buying it, pointing out that she had previously stated that she isn’t close with President Trump’s children, who are her cousins.

“But you’re not close, you have in with the family where you say you don’t have any relationship with Ivanka,” McCain points out. “I think the last thing I understand is you
did end up going to her wedding, but you thought you were only invited as a courtesy.”

McCain then goes on to compare her family to Trump’s, explaining that she has “extended family who I don’t interact with,” insinuating that Mary fits that when it comes to President Trump and his direct family.

Mary Trump clearly didn’t expect this on a show like The View.

But Meghan McCain clearly exposed her for the fraud she is.
