Patterico's Pontifications


Trump Supporter: Trump Eats Children

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 9:23 pm

From a press release from Trump supporter Sean O’Loughlin:

In terms of people and their sexual preferences, I could care less what people do behind closed doors and if two people love each other, the government should allow them to get married. In terms of racial relations, our neighborhoods, places of employment and public schools in New York City are more diverse than anywhere in the world. When people on the news call Donald Trump a racist, I find that statement difficult to believe. Like myself, Donald Trump is a life-long New Yorker. Donald Trump lives, works, eats and employs people of all races and religions. Like many of my fellow New Yorkers, Donald Trump speaks his mind and that type of behavior can easily be misunderstood by people who are not New Yorkers.


UPDATE: Sure, the claim is that he eats “people” and not “children” — but children are people too!

Hillary Clinton Keeps Racking Up The “I’m A Big Fat Liar” Points

What do you call it when a fundamentally dishonest individual tenaciously repeats a well known lie because she understands that sooner or later, Americans will become so exhausted from their efforts to refute it, they will just eventually give up, and perhaps even give in? Cynically determined to wear down Americans, or understanding that her loyalists, like Trump’s, believe truth is superfluous, malleable, and/or doesn’t really matter, Hillary Clinton is still peddling her particular brand of the “truth”. And now that she makes an appearance on the Washington Post’s Recidivism Watch – a unique place that “tracks politicians who repeat claims that we have previously found to be incorrect or false,” Americans are once again reminded that Hillary Clinton’s version of the truth is rarely ever that.

This is the lie she again repeated two days ago, even after receiving Four Pinocchios from the WAshington Post’s Fact Checker, “Pants on Fire” from PolitiFact, and “false” from

“As the FBI said, everything that I’ve said publicly has been consistent and truthful with what I’ve told them.”

As a reminder, this is what Comey said to Congress:

We have no basis to conclude she lied to the FBI.

From the Fact Checker:

Clinton continues to twist this statement by Comey into a line that suggests the FBI declared that her public remarks on the email issues were truthful. But Comey repeatedly refused to confirm that when pressed by lawmakers: “That’s a question I’m not qualified to answer. I can speak about what she said to the FBI.”

When asked specific questions about certain public statements made by Clinton, Comey did not endorse Clinton’s claims. Here’s an exchange between Comey and Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), chair of the House Select Committee on Benghazi:

GOWDY: Secretary Clinton said there was nothing marked classified on her emails either sent or received. Was that true?

COMEY: That’s not true.

GOWDY: Secretary Clinton said, “I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material.” Was that true?

COMEY: There was classified material emailed.
