Trumpy; Building His LEGACY....Of Lies

Recommended Posts

"When I came in, we had no ammunition."

October 18, 2019

 

"This is a good example of how Trump’s most-repeated claims tend to become more exaggerated over time. The president has insisted in recent weeks that when he took office in 2017, the U.S. military brass told him there was no more ammunition.

 

As the two quotes above show, the claim quickly grew from snowball to avalanche. Trump hedged in September: “We were very low … I don’t want to say ‘no ammunition.’ ” But one month later, the hedges were gone: “One of our generals came in to see me and he said, ‘Sir, we don’t have ammunition.’ I said, ‘That’s a terrible thing you just said.’ He said, ‘We don’t have ammunition.’

 

But, the president’s disregard for details and accuracy earns him Three Pinocchios. Trump never limits his comments to PGMs and instead gives the impression that all ammunition was running out. Smart bombs may be the most important kind in the fight against terror, but it’s nevertheless an exaggerated claim.

 

Moreover, Trump’s claim has morphed from “very little” ammunition to “no ammunition.” No military official has claimed that munitions, whether PGMs or for any other kind of weapon, were depleted. Finally, we note that Carter’s comments from 2016 indicate that U.S. officials were working on rebuilding PGM stockpiles before Trump took office.”

Spanky's Alternate Reality On Ukraine

October 29, 2019

 

"Spanky Trump often presents a funhouse-mirror version of events when he talks about Ukraine and the House impeachment inquiry, and then fogs up the discussion by repeating these fantasy claims.

 

We’re taking a look at some of the Trump claims that cross into alternate reality. Our custom is not to give Pinocchios when we round up several statements. Some of the claims below have received Pinocchios previously, yet the president keeps saying them over and over."

Ivanka Has Created 14 Million New Jobs

November 12, 2019

 

"At a speech to the Economic Club of New York today, Spanky Trump declared that his daughter, Ivanka, has personally created 14 million new jobs. The president announced this figure — so astonishingly ludicrous it would embarrass a Stalin-era pronouncement — and then repeated it twice more as the crowd applauded politely."

Trumps False Claim Of "Centuries" Of Fighting

Between Turks And Kurds

November 4, 2019

 

"The reality of Kurdish activity, and both Kurdish and Turkish identity, in the region is more complex. The story starts only a hundred years ago, and it’s a complex saga of peace, suppression, resistance, cooperation and violence. Most of that violence is a result of relatively recent political tensions, and, at times, it has been on behalf of the United States.

 

Time for a history lesson!

 

(Note: Contrary to Trump’s rhetoric, much of the Kurdish-occupied land is mountainous with a diverse geography. It’s not all “sand.”)

 

The Ottoman Empire, with Constantinople (now Istanbul) as its capital, controlled much of the Middle East, Turkey and the Balkans from the 1300s through the early 20th century.

 

“When the Ottoman Empire dissolves at the end of World War I, you have a number of different agreements that the colonial powers come to,” said Lisel Hintz, assistant professor at the School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University. “You have the drawing of boundaries that not only kind of divide populations based on ethnic and religious divisions, but also are manipulated in order to kind of serve the colonial powers’ interests.”
