As Opposition to Ban Grows, Trump Lashes Out, Declaring All Negative Polls 'Fake News'

Lauren McCauley, staff writer

Lashing out over recent courtroom setbacks and growing opposition to the controversial travel ban, U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday declared "any negative poll" to be "fake news."

Any negative polls are fake news, just like the CNN, ABC, NBC polls in the election. Sorry, people want border security and extreme vetting.

— Donald J. Trump ( @realDonaldTrump ) February 6, 2017

The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command. His heart sank as he thought of the enormous power arrayed against him, the ease with which any Party intellectual would overthrow him in debate, the subtle arguments which he would not be able to understand, much less answer. And yet he was in the right! They were wrong and he was right.
1984

Two prescient books that were way ahead of their time and are nascent now more than ever are: George Orwell's 1984 and Sinclair Lewis's It Can't Happen Here.

I think we should secretly replace Donald Trump with Alec Baldwin. Alec Baldwin at least has the ability to be funny, as he is lying to us.

The notion that MSM polls are "scientific" and "non-political" is laughable. These are the same pollsters that omitted Bernie Sanders from the primary polls and then omitted the Green and Libertarian Parties in almost every poll conducted during the actual election season. That obvious bias towards the two-Party duopoly denied Americans an ACTUAL debate on actual issues and instead gave us a freak show where we were told we had to hold our noses and vote for the candidate we hated the least, because the two 3rd Party Candidates didn't poll on at 5% on the polls they weren't even included on!

That's what really sucks about Trump when it comes to what he says about MSM polling. The man lies 97% of the time, but when he actually speaks the truth, we feel compelled to come to the defense of the liars he just called out - you know, because Trump lies 97% of the time.

Does Der Fuhrer realize that he got 10,669,187 less popular votes than the other

How about "Fahrenheit 451" and "The Medium is the Message"?

People are afraid and want security but what they are afraid of is Trump and Bannon. The only way people will feel secure is if Trump resigns or is impeached. So I would suggest that to make people feel secure that Trump should resign.

Yes, many others like the ones you name too.

True but now it is the newest Orwellian meme to label anything that doesn't agree with your views as "fake news"

Such cowardice shown by an individual touted as a " hard ass " businessman ( con artist ).A man takes responsibility for his actions, not avoid them. What hypocrisy, for a child of, and husband of an immigrant to not afford to others what was afforded to his family. Protect our borders, not change our country ...Cheetoh!
