The Donald receives another award

2015 Lie of the Year: the campaign misstatements of Donald Trump

"People may not always think big themselves, but they can still get very excited by those who do. That's why a little hyperbole never hurts," Trump wrote in his 1987 best-seller The Art of the Deal. "People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular. I call it truthful hyperbole. It's an innocent form of exaggeration — and a very effective form of promotion."

And HE has the audacity/impudence to ask for an apology from others?

At least his 'lies' (exaggerations mostly)

(NT) No comment about him asking for an apology?

She's never apologized for anything

she's done..........Trump can ask.....doesn't mean even HE expects one.

RE: Trump can ask

When HE has admitted that HE lies/exaggerates?

Sure smells like a hypocrite.

He HAS admitted to

'poetic license' regarding exaggeration.........SHE never has admitted to even THAT much, let alone the outright lies.

What? No comment?

with regard to HC's lies that are actually criminal and under FBI investigation right now?

NO need for an "investigation" since YOU'VE already determined that they are actually criminal.

Nope....HER Justice Center

determined they were criminal acts when her husband's ambassador and Petreus were both convicted of the same acts....or have liberals conveniently forgotten the truths behind history again?

Some "forget" truths...others "twist" truths.

Former CIA Director David Petraeus, whose career was destroyed by an extramarital affair with his biographer, was sentenced Thursday to two years of probation plus a $100,000 fine for giving her classified material while she was working on the book.

Please list the "criminal acts/same acts" YOU say the Justice Center determined were criminal acts/same acts, that Hillary is "Guilty of".

Hillary had an affair? I thought that was Bill.

Hillary "GAVE classified material" to someone?

Did Hillary "GIVE someone classified material" while they "were working on a book"? Is that HER crime?

Criminal acts re: Classified Documents:

Private email accounts (BC's ambassador and HC) holding classified documents.

Classified documents destroyed even after Congress issued the subpoena requesting those emails.

Petreus having said classified document (ONE, not thousands) in his home and sharing that document with someone else......HC same issues by sharing with persons who may/may not have the same security clearances to see them (such as her attorney who helped 'sort' what was kept and what was destroyed).

HC....PRINTING the emails to give to State Dept rather than sending digital copies which would have included the header information.

The list is even longer, but her statements of "no classified information was ever sent or received" is a lie since it's the ONLY email account she used for Secretary of State, has been proven to be a lie already and that's without having ALL of the emails read yet, and it's beyond belief that she had the account for the entire four years of her 'service' and never had even ONE classified emails sent or received.

But liberals will continue to defend the only candidate they can come up with.....right up until she is indicted. Buying time until she wins the nomination, names a running mate they can live with as her successor, and then toss her to the wolves via the liberal "Justice Dept", where the VP will probably give her a Presidential Pardon immediately after being sworn in like Ford did with that POS Nixon...........

She should fire her attorney since you claim they found 1000 emails with classified info. Perhaps they were the emails she didn't show the attorney because she knew he/she shouldn't see them.

Tell everyone how you know the attorney saw "classified email"

It isn't a "criminal act" UNTIL/UNLESS there is a trial AND a conviction.

PRINTING the emails to give to State Dept

Did the State Dept have proper clearance to receive these documents? I say yes.

Not like the biographer, who WASN'T cleared to have the documents she received.

Apples vs oranges

Petreus was INDICTED with a criminal act....SHE hasn't been YET, so your assumption that it's NOT a criminal act until a trial and conviction is wrong.

IF government documents are on a GOVERNMENT email account and a GOVERNMENT server, the State Dept. gets ALL of the emails and ALL of the info contained in them, including the HEADER info. PRINTING from her house doesn't give the State Dept. ALL of the info about those emails.

How could an attorney help sort emails as to what gets printed and sent to the State Dept and what gets 'deleted' and NOT be allowed to READ them? AND, in the world according to HC (pun intended regarding the "World According to Garp"), she never had received or sent classified documents..........in FOUR years....so how could SHE determine what her attorney would be allowed to read since she claims there weren't ANY? Even the FBI investigation has uncovered 1000 already out of the 30,000 that were sent to the State Dept. that WERE classified, including at least TWO that were TOP SECRET......and there are still thousands to go through yet.

Try harder, JP.....you're slipping badly.

RE: Apples vs oranges

YES...on YOUR part.

so your assumption that it's NOT a criminal act until a trial and conviction is wrong.

Hillary is NOT GUILTY of a criminal act until she has a trial and is FOUND GUILTY of a criminal act. What she did is not a criminal act, committed by her, until she has a trial and is found guilty.

Innocent until proven guilty?

How could an attorney help sort emails as to what gets printed and sent to the State Dept and what gets 'deleted' and NOT be allowed to READ them?

Hillary selects emails she thinks MIGHT be classified and lets the attorney read "them...and only them"None of which were "classified" or have been determined to be "classified"...NOT ALL of the email on her server.

It would be like me inviting you to read the email in my junk mail file.

Petreus didn't have a trial....he pled out

BUT was relieved of duty BEFORE an indictment was issued.....so he was found GUILTY by others early on, and at first ONLY because of the affair.....without a trial or conviction even though adultery is not allowed by military standards (being gay is ok, but you can't cheat on your spouse as if gays don't break their relationship 'vows/promises')

So, on YOUR part, HC gets another free pass? Will you feel differently once an indictment is issued even if the trial and conviction hasn't happened yet? Perhaps one day, you'll actually see that actual forest through the fake trees that HC keeps putting up in front of it, but I doubt it.

I don't remember the department

reviewing her emails found any emails that were classified when she got them. Some were classified afterwards. I do know that several department emails were hacked and haven't heard of her emails being hacked.

BClinton's ambassador

was convicted/indicted under exactly the same circumstances....classified AFTER he had received/sent them....the law makes NO distinction about that because it's automatically a given that anybody with classified security clearance KNOWS what is and isn't. AND if she had had a government email address and used the State Dept.'s server, they would have been classified immediately.

ALL of her 1000 found already were classified as 'sensitive', 'classified', or 'top secret' AFTER the judge ORDERED her to turn them over since she 'destroyed' them AFTER Congress had subpoenaed them. And that only covers the PRINTED ones she sent......wait till the FBI gets to the ones she deliberately deleted.

You cannot possibly believe that every single email in four years as Secretary of State was NOT classified.....oh, wait....you're a liberal, so of course you can.

Ephesians chapter 5

Hillary's Grand Entrance. No trumpets sounding?

"He considers it ‘too disgusting’ to talk about BUT, HE wants to talk about it? Try and justify/defend him even bringing the subject up."


KJV bible
11 - And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

NIV bible
11 - Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret, but everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. (known)

you lose the meaning even more.

Of course with Goebbels it was called "the Big Lie", but the difference here is what I'd call "Expanded Truth".
