Lawrence O’Donnell embarrasses himself on MSNBC

O’Donnell was speaking with Robert Reich about Trump’s steel tariffs and said that Trump was totally ignorant about economics.

O’Donnell graduated from Harvard with a major in Economics. Trump graduated from Wharton with a B.S. in Economics. Reich studied some Economics in the PPE program at Oxford, but has no Economics degree.

Trump may be (ok. make that “definitely is”) an idiot but, at least on paper. he knows as much economics as O’Donnell or Reich.

The Bitemaster calls “Bullshit!” on O’Donnell.

Help me! I can’t stop blogging about Trump! . . . Steven Mnuchin, Steve Bannon and Tiffany Trump All Registered to Vote in Two States

Steven Mnuchin, Steve Bannon and Donald Trump’s youngest daughter, Tiffany Trump, all registered to vote in two states, records show.

The news comes after the President said on Twitter Wednesday morning that he will ask for an investigation into voter fraud. “I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and even, those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time). Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedure,” the President tweeted.

Potential Trump cabinet pick defends posting fake news stories: “How come you all don’t complain about BiteMe?”

One of the Texas pol’s posts falsely claimed the FBI had discovered an Islamic terrorist training camp outside of Houston.

Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, who is being touted as one of President-elect Donald Trump’s possible picks for U.S. agriculture secretary, has built up quite a habit for posting unsupported and blatantly fabricated stories on his campaign’s Facebook page.

“Hundred and fifty posts a week. No, I’m not going to research every one of them,” he told a host for Austin-based radio station KUT News. “If it’s thought provoking, I’ll put it up there and let the readers decide. Everyone that reads that is grown-ups.

“I’m just doing what BiteMe does. The difference is that I have over 300,000 followers and they have maybe three.”

Robert Reich on Donald Trump

“You know, in 1976, when Trump was just starting his career, he said he was worth about $200 million. . . . Most of that was from his father. . . . if he had just put that $200 million into an index fund and reinvested the dividends, he’d be worth twelve billion today, . . . And he got about $850 million in tax subsidies, just in New York alone. . . . He’s not a businessman, [h]e’s a con man.“
