AMDG --- 11 days ago -

A State Department spokesperson denied that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson ever called President Donald Trump a "moron" as reported earlier today.

this is the headline from ABC,

and here is the quote

"The secretary does not use that type of language. The secretary did not use that type of language to speak about the president of the United States. He does not use that language to speak about anyone ... he did not say that," spokesperson Heather Nauert said this afternoon.

It sounds like a denial - but it is not one - It is carefully constructed, and gives Ms. Nauert wiggle room, by never actually denying the actual quote, if the story gets confirmed.

Way more importantly it gives Tillerson wiggle room in the story gets confirmed and throw Ms. Nauert under the bus like a few other spokespersons have been.

If he didn't say it, when he had the microphone in front of his face, and asked a direct questions, all he had to do was give a direct answer - he did not.

Why is that bad journalism when its likely the truth?

it is blatantly, and veritably untrue that Tillerson denied calling trump a moron at the press conference - saying he did is bad journalism

Amazed that people can argue two sides of facts -

Seems we are at that point now - facts are secondary to our position

LOL........... the liberal desperation on KU never ends.



Yours has. Some time ago. But there it is again 

the Markster --- 11 days ago -

Tillerson has not denied calling Trump a moron or taken it back. He did say he wont engage in "petty things".

Take it as one will 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 11 days ago -

If your an anti Trump person anything anyone says or prints that plays into your narrative or preconceived notion will be truth. Same applies if your a Trump supporter.

If your truly American you apply the appropriate level of discernment to both. 

the Markster --- 11 days ago -

If your truly American you apply the appropriate level of discernment to both.

But that doesn't mean one will. Case in point. Trump supporters like bob will blindly support 45 rather than admit how horribly wrong that decision was.
How presumptuous to assume one can tell a real American vs a fake American via ones judgment on any given topic. LOL bob 

AMDG --- 11 days ago -

My issue here is not if Rex did or did not call Trump a moron -

My point is how fast the government machine turned that into "fake news" - without an explicit denial.

That is not good for America - 

AMDG --- 11 days ago -

identify themselves and confirm this - the answer is NO

Then they have no credibility therefore, no story.


I could not possibly disagree with that more. We need to preserve the confidentiality of sources for the press.

I would have hoped that is self evident - hoping so 

AMDG --- 11 days ago -

If your truly American you apply the appropriate level of discernment to both.

the heck with discernment - What you should want is the truth -

We live in real world, where real things happen.

NBC says 3 people say Tillerson called Trump a moron in the real world.

Mr. Tillerson knows if that did or did not happen in the real world.

If it did - he made a serious mistake in saying that out loud about his boss and he should own that.

If he didn't he should stand up and say " I did not call the POTUS a moron " those 3 sources are lying.

Period - end of story.

Do you know what discernment is? 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 11 days ago -

What IS self evident, or at least should be, is that anonymous sources are not verifiable and therefore you have to blindly believe the reporter.

Are we better because of the pentagon papers, Watergate ?? Confidential sources are often insiders - often with a conscience that makes them want to report things they believe the American people should know -

All real news agencies would prefer named sources, but un-named sources with collaboration have been valuable sources of information to the American people for decades - and should remain so.

NBC says...

NBC's top dog also made up crap about being shot at in a helicopter in Iraq and dead bodies floating down the streets in NOLA. He rode those lies until he got cornered on them. NBC=Pravda

then why - when directly asked - when all he had to do was say - I never said that - did he not do that ???

If the NBC is wrong on this story and the 3 sources are lying - than he should just say that.

this is all it takes

"I never called the POTUS a moron"

Why doesn't he do that. 

Prolix Raconteur --- 11 days ago -

Maybe he did say it, maybe he didn't. Who cares? Literally 95% of the MSM coverage of Trump is negative, and they don't even mention or at best gloss over anything positive that he's done. Look at the stock market, the jobs report, the surge in hiring in a newly business friendly environment. Those are big news stories, but hey, Rex Tillerson called Trump a moron. They're all propaganda outlets, nothing more. 

AMDG --- 11 days ago -

Enter the straw man argument. None of that has anything to do with the point in question

So true!!! If Pres Trump was called a moron, that is way more important than anything else because it fits in with their agenda.

AMDG jumping through some high hoops on this one.

For good reason...


And I don?t need tillerson to confirm that trump is a moron he does it just fine on his own. 

Miss Understanding --- 11 days ago -

Figurehead Trump is a moron that is for certain!

I wonder what that says about your candidate, Hillary, if a moron beat her. 

Miss Understanding --- 11 days ago -

Anyone with shades of grey matter knows he cheated with the Russians.

You going with that. Good luck. Since not one vote was changed....how can you say he cheated. What PROOF do you have? I didn't vote for him but I think you Trump haters are really stretching for anything. Down to and including whether someone called him a moron. You guys have discussed for days. Unbelievable! 

voice of reason --- 11 days ago -

Did Rex Tillerson call Trump a moron?


heck yeah. everyone's called him a moron.

It says she's really unpopular- that doesn't make it any less true that he's a moron- 

Dorothy Parker --- 9 days ago -

Trump supporters will NEVER defend Trump on his own merits. Obama, Hillary or someone else is brought up as a way to defend/justify Trump's behavior.

How pathetic is that?

MSM coverage

You sound like such a tool every time you parrot that. 

Prolix Raconteur --- 8 days ago -

Better than being a total tool every single post. 

jackass --- 8 days ago -

It?s reduced to ?I know you are but what am I??



LOL 

Prolix Raconteur --- 8 days ago -

Your interpretation. I was merely pointing out one would assume having a post pointed out as being that of a "tool" would be inherently better than being a total and abject tool in real life. You should know. 

jackass --- 8 days ago -

Yeah I?ve read your posts... 

fuzz81 --- 8 days ago -

Lol

Comprehension appears to elude the dolts. Carry on.
