GROUNDHOG DAY.

I feel like I am in the middle of a Bill Murray movie about groundhogs with this president and his administration. Everyday we are supposed to reset and start all over again. (John Kelly was supposed to take care of all of that.) But alas, every day seems like the one before. It's just one story of lies and cover- ups after another. Today we learned that president trump helped craft his son's misleading statement about his e-mail exchange regarding his meeting with Russians at trump Towers. "In response to New York Times reporting that Donald Trump Jr. met with a Russian lawyer during the campaign, President Donald Trump dictated a misleading statement for his son, The Washington Post reported Monday evening.The Post, citing multiple people with knowledge of the situation, said the original plan in response to the Times' reporting was to issue a truthful statement ahead of the story, but then Trump personally decided to have the statement say Trump Jr. had met with the lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, to discuss adoption of Russian children by people in the US. The Post reports that Trump dictated the statement while flying back to Washington from the G20 summit in Hamburg, aboard Air Force One." [Source] It seems as if the president of the United States is incapable of telling the truth. And that's a bad thing. But you know what's worse? That the people around him seem to be willfully oblivious of his lies and obfuscations. Being able to willfully suspend disbelief is a trait that is obviously needed by his supporters. Finally, I have been saying all along that FOX VIEWS is not a news organization, but that it is more of an entertainment and propaganda network masquerading as something serious and objective. Now, sadly, they have been just shamelessly shilling for the current administration, as they were for George W. Bush and his administration during those disastrous years. The following story shows how far they will allegedly go to push their agenda. Desperately trying to find another Benghazi, they thought they found it in the tragic death of young DNC staffer named Seth Rich.

Everyday we are supposed to reset and start all over again. (John Kelly was supposed to take care of all of that.) But alas, every day seems like the one before. It’s just one story of lies and cover- ups after another.

Today we learned that president trump helped craft his son’s misleading statement about his e-mail exchange regarding his meeting with Russians at trump Towers.

“In response to New York Times reporting that Donald Trump Jr. met with a Russian lawyer during the campaign, President Donald Trump dictated a misleading statement for his son, The Washington Post reported Monday evening.

The fake news story

In the lawsuit, the private investigator sets out a different version of events. Wheeler, a paid Fox News contributor since 2005, alleges the story was orchestrated behind the scenes and from the outset by Butowsky, who hired him on behalf of the Rich family.

The following account reflects the verbatim quotes provided from the texts, emails, voicemails and recorded conversations cited in Wheeler’s lawsuit, except as otherwise noted.

According to the lawsuit, Trump press secretary Sean Spicer meets at the White House with Wheeler and Butowsky to review the Rich story a month before Fox News ran the piece.

On May 14, about 36 hours before Fox News’ story appears, Butowsky leaves a voicemail for Wheeler, saying, “We have the full, uh, attention of the White House on this. And tomorrow, let’s close this deal, whatever we’ve got to do.”

Butowsky also texts Wheeler: “Not to add any more pressure but the president just read the article. He wants the article out immediately. It’s now all up to you.” [Source]

One thing we know about house Negroes is this: At some point they all realize that those in the house does not view them as equals. Rod Wheeler played the god house Negro for years over at FOX. Now that he feels that he has been defamed and misquoted in his investigation for the people at FOX, he has found religion and wants his good name back.

He has filed a lawsuit. Hopefully there will be formal discovery and depositions to come.

I can’t wait.
