For everybody else, see the last few pages, if you can be bothered.

Old argument: There must be collusion.
New argument: Still no collusion...but we're incredibly desperate for something, anything...that we'll extrapolate whatever we possibly can to generate advertising revenue and get our ratings back to where they were before the Mueller report was released...

So Trump's been yelling "No collusion" for two years.

And now he adds "Unless George Stephanopoulos asks me..."

One can only admire your honesty, but I still think you're overestimating your own arguments. You had nothing a few pages ago - now, it's less than nothing. Well done!

Reminds me of one of my favourite tracks...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iJ-bVcLri8
The lyrics fit for DB, too...

BTW, you don't need the Mueller Report, Trump reveals himself every day, given half a chance...



"Stephanopoulos: Your campaign this time around, if foreigners, if Russia, if China, if someone else offers you information on opponents, should they accept it or should they call the FBI?

President Trump: I think maybe you do both. I think you might want to listen, there’s nothing wrong with listening. If somebody called from a country, Norway, “we have information on your opponent.” Oh, I think I’d want to hear it.

Stephanopoulos: You want that kind of interference in our elections?

President Trump: It’s not an interference, they have information. I think I’d take it. If I thought there was something wrong, I’d go maybe to the FBI. If I thought there was something wrong. But when somebody comes up with oppo research, right, they come up with oppo research. Oh, let’s call the FBI. The FBI doesn’t have enough agents to take care of it, but you go and talk honestly to congressmen, they all do it, they always have. And that’s the way it is. It’s called oppo research.

Stephanopoulos: Mr. President. Thank you."

So misquoting me AGAIN is the only way you can muster some sort of pseudo win.

Pathetic, Caputh. Absolutely pathetic. :roll:

I'm sure everybody was very shocked and surprised when they saw I'd left out the word "translation" before the words "I got nothing" in your quote; after all, you've only posted that phrase, or variations of it, 90 times already.
The only high point was when you amusingly wrote this...

Have you actually considered the fact that there is a certain irony about you complaining of being misquoted when the word that is being left out is, in itself, indicating you are about to misrepresent somebody's views? I thought not.

Mexico releases copy of letter touted by Trump
https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/448689-mexico-releases-copy-of-letter-touted-by-trump
By Jesse Byrnes - 06/14/19 08:04 PM EDT

Mexico's government on Friday released a copy of a letter that President Trump touted in front of cameras earlier this week in teasing additional details of a deal reached with the country to stem the flow of migrants heading toward the U.S.

The letter, first published by the Mexican newspaper Reforma, states that the U.S. and Mexico "will immediately begin discussions to establish definitive terms for a binding bilateral agreement to further address burden-sharing and the assignment of responsibility for processing refugee claims of migrants."

The document, signed and dated June 7, states that under such an agreement both countries would commit to "accept the return and process refugee status claims, of third-party nationals who have crossed that party's territory to arrive at a port of entry or between ports of entry of the other party."

It adds that if the U.S. determines after 45 days from the joint declaration reached last week that the measures adopted by Mexico "have not sufficiently achieved results in addressing the flow of migrants to the southern border" then Mexico will take steps to bring the agreement into force within another 45 days.

Marcelo Ebrard, Mexico's top diplomat, presented the document to the Mexican Senate on Friday and said there was no other agreement from the negotiations with the U.S., Reforma reported. Ebrard has said the two sides will reassess the migrant situation after 45 days and again after 90 days.

Trump on Tuesday had held up a single folded sheet of paper in front of cameras before leaving on a trip to Iowa, saying the paper represented an agreement between the U.S. and Mexico.

The president declined to share any details about the letter. He has sought to sell the deal reached between his administration and Mexico amid reports it included actions Mexico had already agreed to take.

"That’s the agreement that everybody says I don’t have," Trump told reporters at the White House on Tuesday while pulling the document from the pocket of his jacket.

"This is one page of a very long and very good agreement for both Mexico and the United States," he added.

Mexico and the U.S. reached a deal late last week for Mexico to take steps to curb the flow of migrants traveling toward the United States's southern border in exchange for Trump dropping his threat to impose a 5 percent tariff on all Mexican goods entering the U.S.

The Hill has reached out to the White House for comment on the letter released Friday.

Oh...so now you can't even quote some of my previous quotes correctly and are using them to further muddy up the waters. Excellent! Hey, maybe next time you can triple the confusion by not quoting almost ANY quotes of mine correctly in order to make things even more idiotic by diverting attention way from the points I've already made? Oh, wait...never mind, you've already done that countless times - my mistake!

Yeah...it's ironic. Absolutely. :roll:

In that speech Trump thinks "Japanese" cars are made in Japan.
Honda:
According to Honda, “94 percent of Honda and Acura vehicles sold in the U.S. in 2013 were manufactured in North America, the highest percentage of any international automaker.” On top of that, 70 percent of the Honda Accord's content is sourced from the U.S. and Canada. Fifteen percent is sourced from Japan.Feb 19, 2015
