.@AshleyRParker. I disagree. There is no actual or perceived benefit in having #AxisSally @PressSec lie before reporters/tv audience. She lies nonstop and the majority of the @whca won’t push back. Even if they do, she doesn’t care. The lie gets broadcast. @KatyTurNBC (1)
The WH cadre of liars main goal is to introduce the lie into the narrative, knowing full well the lie will be amplified by @foxnews and @WeAreSinclair. If no one confronts the liar @presssec in “real time”, the lie gets out. (2)
In an ideal world all the journalists in the @whca would band together for one day pre press conference, decide on a topic for questions, and hammer her relentlessly to get a truthful answer. But the press values competition, and access over duty. (3)
Disturbing to see journalists on talk shows refuting the WH with hosts, but not doing it with any of these WH hacks like Sanders, Conway, etc in REAL TIME. Journalists must ask questions like prosecutors; knowing the answer before asking the question. (4)
Much harder to refute a lie after the fact, rather than addressing it in real time. The lie gets into the narrative. Which is the WH’s goal. The press must do better. End.
Addendum. Listening to this bogus WH press conference from #AxisSally @PressSec lying without compunction; she had the AUDACITY to state she is more trusted than the press. She is less trustworthy than #BaghdadBob, and she doesn’t give a damn. As long as the lie gets out.

The Republican Party can NEVER AGAIN claim to be the party of patriotism, national security, fiscal responsibility, family values, morality, or American leadership on the world stage. (1)
Patriotism: @realDonaldTrump’s disgusting display of deference and subservience to @KremlinRussia_E Putin, combined with the myriad of @GOP senators prostrating themselves (on July 4th, no less) to Putin was a shameful display of treasonous behavior. (2)
National Security: The removal of security clearance from @JohnBrennan, continued attacks on the @FBI and @TheJusticeDept coupled with treasonous activities of @DevinNunes and others harm national security. The fact that @SenateMajLdr & @SpeakerRyan remain silent = #complicit (3)

Seeing The @GOP @HouseGOP @SenateGOP @SenateMajLdr @SpeakerRyan let criminal @realDonaldTrump violate the rule of law and pardon friends without objection is the SAME THING as @NYPDCT handing #ISIL guns & ammo and letting them shoot up @TimesSquareNYC #IllegitimatePresident (1)
One has to wonder why in the face of this obvious corruption of @realDonaldTrump and the open conspiracy with @KremlinRussia_E, the @GOP stays silent. Could this be the reason? dallasnews.com/opinion/commen… (2)
Can it be that @DevinNunes @RepMattGaetz @Jim_Jordan @RepSteveChabot @LouieGohmertTX1 @DanaRohrabacher are actually actively receiving money from @KremlinRussia_E friendly Oligarchs? #Mueller (3)

#FridayFeeling Another school shooting. Another round of “thoughts and prayers”. “Mental illness”. “Too soon to talk about gun control” “arm the teachers”. Next mass shooting. Rinse and repeat. Fuck this. I wrote this in 2015 facebook.com/walter.broadna…. Still applies. (1)
But it won’t matter. The carnage will continue. @realDonaldTrump will offer some half-assed non empathetic statement written by one of his Alt-right staffers. @mike_pence will look “earnest” while lying. And the @NRA? gunrunner @OliverNorthNRA will call the victims terrorists
Looking for courageous action among the GOP? @SpeakerRyan? @marcorubio? @tedcruz? All taking @NRA (Russian Oligarchs) money. Don’t count on it.

On Syria: If there were a serious effort from this administration to stop Assad, strict financial sanctions should be placed on him AND Putin. Shut their access to their finances worldwide. Anything outside of Syria/Russia should be seized. Ban their oil worldwide @AliVelshi
Syria must be punished for gassing their population. But a telegraphed ignorant tweet from a man-baby blustering about missiles isn’t the answer. Coward #Chickenhawk @realDonaldTrump is making the situation worse.
Until the financial capability of Assad AND Putin are sanctioned, this uncontrolled criminal act will continue. @KremlinRussia_E must be sanctioned severely because he FUNDS Assad’s chemical warfare buzzfeed.com/alexcampbell/k…
