    Didn't see that at all. Apparently you're blinded from having kissed Obama's black ass for so long. Did you get some shit in your eyes, boy?

    People Bet On How Much Trump Would Lie In His Oval Office Address And Won $276,424

    A gambling site is paying out thousands of dollars to people who correctly bet that President Donald Trump would tell more than 3.5 lies in his Oval Office address on Tuesday. asked people to wager on the president's truthfulness, offering odds of -145 for more than 3.5 lies and +115 for less than 3.5 lies. That means if a person bet $145 dollars that Trump would lie at least four times, they would win $100.

    And some people won big. Odds consultant John Lester told BuzzFeed News the site will lose $276,424, with 92% of its bettors correctly wagering that Trump would lie a lot.

    "It's a bad day for Truthiness and Bookmaker," he said. "We knew we were in trouble early with this one."


    A whole new economic playing field
    Trump isn't our 45th American president; he's our 1st Russian one.

    Remember this on Tuesday November 3rd, 2020

    Trump Channels Hannity and Lou Dobbs, Fearmongers for the Wall

    Much of the Oval Office address echoed usual Trump rhetoric: hyper partisan at points, and dripping with nativism. But in a notable way, Trump blinked.

    In the days before his Oval Office address on Tuesday night, Donald Trump leaned on a number of advisers on how to navigate the government shutdown he’d waged over funding for his border wall. The list included immigration hardliners Fox News host Sean Hannity and Fox Business star Lou Dobbs, both of whom, according to two sources familiar with the conversations, had a clear message for the president: push forward for the wall funding and break the Democrats’ will.

    The president took the counsel of the hardliners. On Tuesday night he claimed that there was a “growing humanitarian” crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border—”a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul”—that required the construction of a physical barrier.

    “Women and children are the biggest victims, by far, of our broken system,” Trump said at one point, his voice far softer than those thunderous calls for a Mexican-paid-for wall that he’d offered during the dog days of the 2016 presidential campaign. “This is the tragic reality of illegal immigration on our southern border. This is the cycle of human suffering that I am determined to end.”

    Much of it echoed usual Trump rhetoric: heavy on fearmongering, hyperpartisan at points, and dripping with nativism. But in a notable way, Trump blinked. Hours before the televised speech, he had been contemplating declaring a national emergency in order to be able to unilaterally divert military funds for the construction of the border wall but that declaration notably didn’t make it into the final address. Trump didn’t even try to link border crossings with terrorism, despite days’ worth of his senior officials attempting to make that dubious connection.

    Still, the speech illustrated both the agency that immigration restrictionists and conservative media figures continue to have within the White House, as well as the insatiable appetite the president appears to have for hyping threats along the southern border—threats that are largely divorced from realities on the ground.
    Trump is just thinking decades ahead of our time. He knows with the 1000 foot rise in sea levels, we are going to need walls. He knows the idiots that built right on top of the ocean won't let him build there now, so he is getting the nation primed and ready with the 'test wall' along the Mexican border. He knows the climate fear mongers will approve of walls. /sarcasm
