    Come to think of it you can always use the angle of "the Cohen thing was the most iffy so if even that had a grain of truth the other stuff is much more believable" and hammer at it that way.

    I have to admit, though, it is a little bit amusing to see the Trump camp get so riled up about "fake news"

    I like how fake news has changed from intentionally innaccurate information to "stuff I wish you wouldn't tell people"

    This was literally the meaning Fake News was used under the entire time
    Ja, ich weiß, woher ich stamme,
    Ungesättigt gleich der Flamme
    Glühe und verzehr’ ich mich.
    Licht wird alles was ich fasse,Kohle alles, was ich lasse,
    Flamme bin ich sicherlich.

    It wasn't for maybe... 24 hours? And then it drifted real quick-like. More to the point, what bloody genius decided that it was a good idea to make something so reversible a popular buzzword?

    It wasn't a buzzword it was a literal description.

    Be less uninformed. There were literal mass movements to produce false stories both for political reasons and in some cases because Balkan teenagers wanted to make money.

    Fake news has been a real and defined term since before the internet. Hell, since before the turn of the last century.

    it was only in the last year of two that people just started using it for the cult like premise of stating "don't believe what anyone else tells you, only believe everything I tell you."

    So the budget being passed by the house including the repeal Obamacare adds literally nine trillion more to the deficit over current deficits, bringing the expected deficits to a hair under 30 trillion.

    nice to see that laser like focus on deficits and fiscal responsibility the RNC prides itself on in action.

    fun fact, if tiny fingers McGee ended up signing said budget he would with a pen stroke have added more to the deficits then Obama did in 8 years. This includes one time expenditures such as the stimulus and so on.

    I can't wait for Republicans to talk about how they bravely took down Obamacare while the spiteful Democrats destroyed the ACA, and for voters to accept this and defend them.

    And of course I'm also excited to see some people in this thread defend them.
