Back in the early 2000s I worked with a Chinese P.E. who was a student in Beijing in '89 and was in the Square. She wouldn't talk about it much other than to say she was there.

National Public Radio (NPR), the taxpayer-funded media outlet, reported on Monday that President Donald Trump lied about the mayor of London’s height in a tweet he posted ahead of his state visit to the United Kingdom.

Martin then asked NPR London reporter Frank Langfitt what Trump was up to ahead of the trip.

“Well he fired off on Twitter criticism of Khan,” Langfitt said. “He said Khan had done a terrible job as mayor of London, called him a stone-cold loser, compared him to — in the opinion of the president — the very dumb and incompetent mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio.”

“One difference, Trump said, between the two mayors, he said that Khan is only half the height of de Blasio,” Langfitt said. “That’s not true. Mayor Khan is 5 foot 6.”



NPR did the math and discovered that if the mayor were half the size of de Blasio’s 6 feet 5 inches, he would be just over 3 feet tall.

Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep introduced another piece on D-Day from Langfitt by highlighting Trump “insulting” the mayor.

“President Trump has begun a state visit to the U.K. by demonstrating his talent for seizing headlines,” Inskeep said. “He’s insulting London’s mayor for being short after the mayor criticized him.”
:lol:

Isn't it great that the POTUS is acting like he's in some sort of weird Monty Python skit?

I thought it was funny that NPR fact checked the "height" of Khan to the Oil Driller.

If were infrequent, and kind of funny, I agree, no big deal to make a stupid joke every now and then. But it's multiple times every freaking day. He's a fucking buffoon

one can think he's an idiot AND think the way the press covers him is also idiotic (checking how fucking tall someone is)

Seriously, in the trump mind, actually being fact checked on a stupid burn of the London mayor has got to be the best thing. It just keeps his stupid trolling going.

867.9508 » Tue Jun 04, 2019 7:01 pm

Yeah, the trolling will keep going regardless. It’s all he has.

House Democrats plan to move forward next week with a vote to hold U.S. Attorney General William Barr and White House counsel Don McGahn in contempt of Congress, despite signaling two weeks ago that they were moving away from such a vote.
