Trump claims he doesn’t know his new acting attorney general. A month ago he said he did.

Shapiro noticed that frames in the tweeted video were frozen to slow down the action, allowing it to run the same length as the AP one.

The alteration is "too precise to be an accident," said Shapiro, who trains instructors to use the software. The tweeted video also does not have any audio, which Shapiro said would make it easier to alter.

Sanders, who has not said where the tweeted video came from, said it clearly shows Acosta made contact with the intern.

While the origin of the manipulated video is unclear, its distribution marked a new low for an administration that has been criticized for its willingness to mislead.

Trump’s Press Conference Was Nutty, Self-Absorbed, and Full of Lies
The president dismissed the public’s election rebuke and stabbed his allies in the back. And that was just the start.

If you can't (or refuse to) grasp the context of the original statement, then it's really not an insult so much as an accurate descriptor.

Trump insults everyone. Remember Kizr and Ghazala Khan, the Pakistani-American parents of slain US Army Captain Humayan Khan? The parents whom Trump disrespected? Yeah, what a surprise you forgot. 


Is Stormy Daniels a politician? Trump called her "horseface." How many people has Trump called an idiot or ugly or sad? Christ, you can't even keep track of all the hate and viciousness that spews out of his mouth. And the whole way he's characterized the people in the caravan as murderers, rapists, thugs, Lord even Islamic terrorists: those are insults too. 
 


No, Democrats don't insult all of Trump's supporters, or even some of them all the time. But when adults refuse to acknowledge facts and embrace a non-stop liar who lies again when he claims to work to promote their best interests, the rest of us wonder why and how those adults can be so delusional. 

Drain the swamp? Jesus, what a joke.

Bring back coal? Not happening and never will. 

Massive infrastructure projects to help economically struggling areas? Not even on the horizon. 

Tax cut reform? Sure for the top 1%—really, more like the top 0.1% . 

Oh, and in case you hadn't noticed, kurtster: Mitch McConnell and other GOP leaders are quietly talking about cutting Social Security and Medicare benefits to pay for that $1.5 budget deficit caused by the tax cut. So Trump and Co. are going to try and ream YOU. 

Health care reform? Trump and the GOP are still working hard to dismantle the ACA and replace it with sham insurance policies. 

You cry and cry and cry about how liberals are disrespecting you when Trump is practically stripping the clothes off of your back. You are stuck in a story of victimhood that Trump and the GOP dreamed up for you—even though they're the ones victimizing you.

See, the name calling is the world where the GOP prefers to live. Our President is the top of that heap for name calling others, and there are plenty of examples (Lyin Ted, etc). Then, instead of talking about  his broken promises (wall, Obamacare, taxes, drug costs, etc) names get dragged out again as a defense. "You called us names!"

And I haven't even mentioned Killary or Obammy. That sort of stuff is high school football, which I left behind decades ago.

The legit issue is that his supposed successes are minimal. The one big "accomplishment" was a tax package that HURT the middle class and helped the rich. Everything else has been promises and failures.

At 11:02 a.m. on Monday, after the Donald J. Trump for President campaign announced that Sean Hannity would appear at his rally on the eve of the midterm elections, the prime-time star of Fox News posted a Shermanesque tweet: “I will not be on the stage campaigning with the president.”

A few hours later, in Cape Girardeau, Mo., Rush Limbaugh’s hometown, Mr. Hannity was on the stage campaigning with the president.

Yes, and keeping track of his mistakes and lies and failed promises (repeal and replace Obamacare! tax cuts for the middle class! better drug prices! big beautiful wall paid for by Mexico!- all promises broken) is very very important.

My point is that there's a subset of America that doesn't care about facts. And so posting ad infinitum every time he uses the wrong soup spoon is just tiresome. The folks with open eyes have been converted, and the others cannot be.
 
Read hyperbole. 

Fixate on his hyperbole and ignore the underlying truths behind it at one's own risk.  That, I suspect is how most of his supporters deal with his 'endless lies'.

Counting Trump's lies does matter. Trump's support among his base seems bullet-proof right now, thanks largely to a pretty healthy economy and Fox's willingness to support those lies and regurgitate them to that base. But that support will not last forever and documentation of his lies now will prove later to Americans disillusioned with Trump that he was a lying sham all along. 

Take a look at the trajectory of GW Bush's popularity.  Bush started his presidency at around 60% approval rating. That number slipped to around 50% before 9/11. Shortly after the WTC attack, his approval rating shot up to 85% and peaked around 92%. 

As we're all painfully aware, things really fell apart for Bush after that. Americans eventually wised up to the fact that 

* there was no active WMD program in Iraq

* we'd been duped into invading Iraq

* we had too few troops in country and no plan for getting out or stabilizing Iraq

* we were pointlessly torturing prisoners and getting no real intelligence from them

* our intelligence agencies had created massive and largely unregulated surveillance programs directed at us

* our supposed homeland security and disaster relief programs failed and a major city drowned

* our federal government's incredibly lax oversight of mortgage and Wall street practices brought our economy to the point of very near collapse in a very short period of time

etc. 
Many of the lies foisted on us by the Bush administration were so contradicted by facts that many of his supporters woke up and abandoned him. Towards the end of Bush's second term, opinions had changed: Bush's approval rating was down to 25%. And there's this factoid from Wikipedia: 

In an August 2008 Rasmussen poll, likely voters were asked the question "Will history rate George W. Bush as the worst President ever?"— 50% responded "no", 41% said "yes" and 9% were "unsure".<8>


Trump is due for a similar political reckoning.
