Supporter-wise, it's kind of like winning Prom King/Queen in H.S. It's cool in the beginning but when you're still talking about it after a certain point, things aren't going well for you.

My thoughts exactly. This is one of the lamest things to criticise a prez about. It should not have been an issue in the first place, and definitely should not still be a thing today!

(neither should size of hands, colour of skin, shittiness of hairstyle, ...)

Well, it may be a BIT redundant, but....it's the NPS that's just this week (re-)released the pics as the definitively "official" pics. Andddd....

... the Park Service is part of the executive branch that Trump now runs. So in a way, the president's own administration has just debunked him. We'll find out if he sees it that way.

....so....maybe DONALD wants the dialogue to continue. You know....anything but what's REALLY happening.

When you criticize the people who are making "the big deal" out of crowd, hand and body part sizes, did you take into account it was mainly in response to exaggerated claims and hyperbole by 45 himself?

I did, yes.
People are all too willing to get drawn into the petty stuff, which is just what he relies on to take some focus off things that actually matter.
There's nothing at all wrong with a fact check, but I watch a decent amount of US TV (I'm a regular viewer of The Daily Show, The Late Show, Last Week Tonight, and SNL), and I think it's unfortunate how regularly they get sidetracked for cheap giggles. (Well ok, that is SNL's staple diet, but the others should be better than that). There is some smart writing on those shows, but picking on the wrong things loses respect points from me.

That line-up isn't complete until you add Samantha Bee's "Full Frontal". I do believe she's a cut above. Cool

I see your point and agree to a certain extent. But that kind of reasoning requires a level of maturity and the waterproof nature of a duck's back way beyond normal to be able to listen to ridiculous falsities being uttered without challenge.

It's reflected in their bitterness when you read their posts. I think what's really sad is the fact that we're talking about exaggerated stories to boot.

I have always loved Sam Bee, and I do catch FF when I can.

For most people, it's probably not mutually exclusive.

It's not too hard to call the asshole out on his countless, continual obvious lies while decrying the havoc being wreaked by what will likely be the most amateur/corrupt administration and middle & lower class ruining Republican policies in US history.

The complicity of the corporate MSM is of course deplorable.

Indeed.
