Liar, Liar Pants on Fire! The Chumph and the Truth

Those familiar with FOIA requests, particularly in dealing with Federal Agencies with security, or other laws, know all about “Redacted” documents. The evil black pen which erases large amounts of content and information in documents from the Government. Jezebel just gave the same treatment to the Chumph’s recent Interview with Time Magazine – redacting everything the Chumph said that was provably a lie. Makes for an interesting visual!

We Redacted Everything That’s Not a Verifiably True Statement From Trump’s Time Interview About Truth

President Trump recently participated in an interview with Time Magazine’s Michael Scherer for a cover story about his relationship with the truth. Predictably, this conversation really tested the limits of irony.

In the full transcript of the interview published by Time, Trump lies a lot, says a number of half-true things, does not admit he was incorrect to link Ted Cruz’s father with Lee Harvey Oswald, foists responsibility for his inaccuracies onto media reports that he misrepresents, says the word “Brexit” 11 times, and forms sentences like “Brussels, I said, Brussels is not Brussels.” But, listen, some of it was fine! In the transcript below, we have redacted everything that is not verifiably true. What remains is everything the president said that is definitely true.

There is More

HBCUs and Trump

Interesting interview. Not sure where, other than Leli Baskerville, Roland dug his panel up from. The woman on the right hand side of the table, who isn’t identified is a world class Auntie Tommette, lying about what President Obama did for HBCUs.

The facts…

Under the Obama Administration, 1 million more African-American and Latino students have enrolled in college. What’s more, black and Hispanic students earned more than 270,000 more undergraduate degrees in 2013-2014 than in 2008-2009. This Administration remains focused on continuing to increase the number of students who successfully complete college. To that end, the Department has worked to make new opportunities available to HBCUs.

Federal funding to HBCUs has grown each year since 2009. Through the Higher Education Act, HBCUs received a $17 million funding increase this year—the largest increase for the federal Strengthening HBCUs program in six years. And President Obama’s FY 2017 budget seeks to maintain and strengthen these opportunities for HBCUs to build their capacity. The FY 2017 budget proposes $85 million in mandatory funding to HBCUs, an increase of $5 million from FY 2016, plus an additional $244.7 million in discretionary funds for Title III.

The Administration has also fought for and won a historic commitment to fully fund Pell Grants and expand student aid for millions of low-income students. Pell Grant funding for HBCU students increased significantly between 2007 and 2014, growing from $523 million to $824 million. This year, President Obama announced a plan to make sure that Pell Grants are fully funded, including inflationary adjustments, and used strategically by students to reduce time and cost for receiving a terminal degree. The President’s 2017 budget also proposes a $30 million HBCU and Minority Serving Institution Innovation for Completion Fund, to help students from low-income backgrounds overcome challenges and persist through graduation day.

The other facts –

The brutal truth is, at least the bottom half of these schools either need to be shut down or no longer receive federal support and funding. I would cut everything except the top 10 or 20. Close the doors on the rest, absorb them into their respective State Junior College System…Or install a granite marker where they used to be. Investing money in the top 20 schools would likely make a difference – especially in not throwing away money at the bottom 30. Spellman, Howard, Hampton, Morehouse, and Fisk have the capability to become competitive with the very best schools in America.

Time to cut bait or fish.

Kellyanne Conway Gets Her CNN Interview At the White House…And Jake Tapper Takes Her to the Woodshed!

Well…The gloves finally came off at CNN yesterday, and it wasn’t pretty. Chumph’s serial liar Kellyanne Conway got a taste of what a real interview is like – getting called on her lies.

Conway just discovered what happens when the media takes the gloves off.

WATCH: Jake Tapper takes down Kellyanne Conway for the White House

In response to the White House’s declaration of war to CNN, Jake Tapper takes the gloves off

On Monday, legendary news anchor Dan Rather singled out CNN’s Jake Tapper as today’s journalistic standard. On Tuesday, Tapper showed off his talent in a 25-minute, wide-ranging showdown with White House senior counselor Kellyanne Conway.

After Conway fabricated a terror attack — the so-called Bowling Green massacre — to justify a constitutionally-questionable travel ban, Tapper confidently held the high ground in the interview.

“You cited a massacre that didn’t happen. You said the media didn’t cover it,” Tapper said.

“What I mean is the media didn’t cover the masterminds,” Conway responded.

Throughout the heated interview, Tapper was determined to hold Conway and her boss accountable for their words, perhaps inspired by President Trump labeling CNN “fake news” and his denigration of the media at large.

“I guess the problem is, it is very difficult to hear criticisms of the media for making mistakes, and certainly the media makes mistakes,” Tapper said at one point during the interview. “But it’s very difficult to hear those criticisms from a White House that has such little regard, day in, day out, for facts, for truth.”

The host of CNN’s “The Lead” was clearly offended by the disparaging comments coming out of the White House. Conway argued that the media was unfairly covering the new administration, focusing on the negative stories while ignoring its scant successes. But Tapper was having none of that.

“What we’re talking about is the fact that the White House is waging war on people who are providing information, sometimes risking their lives to do so, saying that nothing we say is true. All of it is fake. I would much rather be talking to you about veterans issues,” Tapper said. “But instead, every day, there are these strains of attack and strains of falsehoods coming from the White House.”

The Breakfast Club Trevor Noah Interview

A couple of things here…

First, that somehow Tomi Lahren is “beautiful”…Nope.

Second, somehow that Noah is a “sell out” for meeting with her after his interview.  NO – that’s Business.

Trevor Noah – Born a Crime

Trevor Noah on growing up in Soweto…

Trevor Noah on being mixed-race in apartheid South Africa: “I was just living this life of being a physical crime”

Noah sat down with “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert to promote his new book, “Born a Crime”

“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert interviewed Trevor Noah to talk about the “Daily Show” host’s forthcoming book, “Born a Crime.”

Asked about the title of the book, Noah said “the title came from my life.”

“I was born a crime. I was born to a black South African mother and a white Swiss father during apartheid in South Africa and them [having sex] was illegal,” he explained. “Apartheid only ended in 1990, so for the first six years of my life I was just living this life of being a physical crime.”

“Writing the book was fantastic because I had to go back through my life. I learned things about my life I didn’t actually even know,” he continued. “For instance, I always thought I was an indoor child. Turns out I wasn’t allowed to leave the house because if I was seen in … the area I lived in, the police would see me and go like, ‘Oh, that kid, he’s a crime, you can see that.’ And then they’d take me away and send me off to an orphanage because my mom wasn’t allowed to have me and my dad wasn’t allowed to have made me.”
