Trump's Out of Control



Not a day goes by without Donald Trump making claims about 'false news', but here we have an American President making the news himself with completely invented, made up claims over the reporting of Islamist terrorism by the news media.

Trump's bizarre behaviour is reported extensively in The Guardian article below, but the man himself seems unfazed by the fact that he just making things up as he goes along 

“in many cases the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it. They have their reasons, and you understand that,” Trump stated.

Even though his claim was utterly false and made without a shred of supporting evidence.

Yet while Trump goes out of his way to smear America's allies long-standing in Europe he continues to go out of his way to cosy up to Russia and Vladimir Putin.

More Americans voted for Hillary Clinton than those voted for Donald Trump, so we should not allow this crazy behaviour to develop into an anti-American thing.

But the reality is that President Trump is out of control.

Donald Trump's 'under-reported' terror list includes Paris, Berlin and Nice attacks
White House backs up president’s claim that media is deliberately ignoring terror attacks by releasing list riddled with errors



By David Smith - The Guardian

The White House has distributed a list of 78 terrorist attacks to support Donald Trump’s claim that the media is failing to properly report them.

But the list includes many atrocities that received blanket western media coverage including the Paris Bataclan attacks, the Nice truck killings and the San Bernardino shootings.

Many others including the Sydney siege and Germany’s Christmas market attack received wide international coverage.

The list also includes multiple errors and spelling mistakes, including ‘San Bernadino’, and for no apparent reason excludes terror attacks in Israel.

The release comes after the US president told military leaders in Tampa, Florida, on Monday that there have been attacks all over Europe but “in many cases the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it.” He added, “They have their reasons, and you understand that,” but did not expand.
