    I would suggest that Trump is well acquainted with lies, given his astonishing aptitude with them.

    On this we agree.
    Did Obama allow nonsense questions in the press meetings? Hell, Hillary avoided all questions like the plague.

    How often did Obama attack Fox again?

    I think Trump would have snapped. (He's on the point of snapping ever since he was born.)

    It wouldn't have surprised me if Trump had this reporter thrown out or at least threatened to do so. THAT would have given us a gimps of Trump's disrespect for free speech. And that, in turn, would have been enough in itself to begin his downfall. You can't quote the Nazi's and then act like one. That would have been a delicious match for the media to serve.

    The idiot Trump doesn't realize, as usual, that this idiotic behavior only will come back to him in the form of ridicule by the media. Every day he'll be considered satire be media-outlets worldwide (including CNN) and Trump's response will be just more outrages behavior. Telling a reporter to be quit does not sound smart or professional or presidential, just plain dumb and childish and that will be the verdict. Someone tell Trump! (Or no, don’t, let him self-destruct.)

    This self inflicted cancer of ridicule is gonna eat Trump alive.

    The voters might have elected Trump, it's op to the free press to undo that mistake and and keep exposing Trump for the moron that he is. In the end, Trump will drown in his own cesspool of lunacy. I guarantee it. He won't last the year. (Especially not once his liaisons with prostitutes have been exposed.)
    Here's the Truth. Trump praised all the newsmen, even those he had differences with, for having the journalistic integrity to not print news that is unsubstantiated.Then he berated CNN for not having integrity and ignored their butt hurt reporter. Trump is asking reporters to meet an ethical standard.
    I don't expect someone from the EU with all its tabloid journalism to understand that.

    But I think you are correct, some are intent on only finding reasons not to believe. That is very foreign to me.
    What is foreign to me is that people choose to believe in something they can't see, touch, taste, feel and for which there is no evidence of it ever having existed other than in a 2000 year-old book written non-contemporaneously with alleged events, but decades later. Now you're telling me that's rational? If I see 'Jesus' on a piece of toast is that an 'apparition'? https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=je...TFIskQoBzrM%3A

    And people in the audience applauded when he said that.

    Every politician lies, so no arguments there. But I have no remorse for CNN, as their reputation has taken a nose dive here in the US. This media thing has nothing to do with Trump, for the last decade Americans have been pissed at the crappy quality. Trump is now the outlet for ALL of our frustrations, including Left frustrations with the media.

    In retrospect, I don't think Trump or Obama are cowards, rather they acted cowardly. I was being vitriolic there and apologize for it.

    As I recall, I joined PF in 2014, largely to lurk and like. Just because you don't remember what I may have said here on this forum doesn't mean I've not had that opinion. Further, that was 3 years ago - that's one tenth of my time on earth. I may have different opinions then as I do now, and those opinions will likely change as I grow older and wiser. Its not a weakness.

    Canadian media will get together and gang up on whoever won't answer questions. I've seen it a lot of times. Sadly the yanks don't want to do this. They have the power over trump if they all acted as one.

    I cannot address you directly as I have other duties. But Chesterton said (not verbatum but its his message) - - - “when the world stops believing in God they then do not believe in nothing, they will believe in anything.” It is in reference to specific events or claims or presentations of empirical evidence where they are so easily dismissed or explained away in less than honorable or reasonable terms. Here are a couple of more what i would call miracles from above.

    Beginning in 1973, the wooden statue of the Virgin Mary in a convent in Akita, Japan has wept human tears or human blood on 101 occasions before a host of eye witnesses including medical experts and even on Japanese TV. It is extremely well documented and testified to. The first nun to have both witnessed the lacrimations and also reported the voice of the Mother of God speaking to her was cured of what was then described as an incurable deafness. So what do the skeptics say? They say it was a trick by the nuns. Or they say everybody is lying. Or they say it was bacon grease and heat that caused the tears or some other cockamamie suggestion. So that is what Chesterton is referring to --- when a person who very much does not want to accept God exists is exposed to the evidence, they refuse to accept the evidence and provide the flimsiest of rebuttals that speak volumes. It speaks agenda, not a truthful opinion or a scientific one.

    Again, in 1968 over 250,000 Egyptians claim to see the Virgin Mary walking and floating on top of a Coptic Christian cathedral in Zeitoun, a suburb of Egypt. This occurred on more than 20 nights that summer. The NY Times twice reported on this phenomenon in May and August of 1968. I have the articles. The apparitions of Mary always happened after midnight and were accompanied by 12 dove-like birds flying at dizzying speeds. Also present were inexplicable great lights and plumes of colorful smoke. Even those (and there were a number of them) who were not granted the privilege by God to see the Virgin did see the birds, smoke and lights. Egyptian officials and anyone else never could explain the origin of the lights or smoke or type of birds. So what do the skeptics say? Not much. Except mass hallucination and maybe I have to revisit Joe Nickell’s skeptic website to see what other lame “explanation” he proffers? But again, it is a case of “they then do not believe in nothing, they will believe in anything.”

    That is what I meant by that quote, it was not meant to imply that there are not very sincere and learned men who cannot get themselves to accept the reality of God based on very honest research. I know they exist and I believe them when they say they may want to believe but cannot.
