Jake Tapper Trolls Trump With Partial List Of His Lies

Just a few of the lies Donald Trump has told to the nation


Jake Tapper on CNN today:

“While we’re sticking to the facts and telling you what we know, President Trump has no constraints since he simply makes stuff up. He frequently lies and has a long and well documented conspiracy theories with no concrete evidence ever provided.

"For years he perpetuated the myth that Obama was not born in the United States, and that he saw thousands of Muslims on TV celebrating 9/11, and he suggested Ted Cruz’s father might have been involved in the assassination of JFK, again zero evidence for this.

"I could go on but this is just an hour show.”

Jake Tapper rocks my afternoons :)

Bakery - We Have A Cake Malfunction

True story - a mother wanted to celebrate her son's graduating with honors from high school.

So, she ordered a cake from her local Publix grocery store.

But things didn't go as planned because the bakery deliberately left off the middle word in "Summa Cum Laude" because the bakery's system thought it was a nasty word.


Come On, You Guys - Everyone Call It 'SpyGate'

Donald Trump invents his own catch phrase "SpyGate" - 
Donald Trump really, really wants his nickname "SpyGate" to take off so, so badly.

Asked if he had any proof regarding his allegations the FBI embedded a spy in his 2016 campaign, the Trumpster repeated his pet phrase: “We now call it Spygate. You are calling it Spygate."

Like, totally out of Mean Girls, you know?

From The Washington Post:

Trump’s claim is that the FBI put a “spy” in his campaign at the behest of Barack Obama’s White House as part of an effort to undercut his candidacy by alleging collusion with the Russians. It’s hard to square that claim with 1) Trump’s repeated insistence that the Russia investigation began only after he won as an excuse for the Democrats’ loss, and 2) the fact that America only learned about the investigation into Russian collusion after voting had already occurred.

If Obama and the Democrats put a spy in his campaign to undercut his chances, they made a small strategic error by not mentioning anything publicly before votes were cast. But that’s the claim, because internal consistency is not a requirement for any conspiracy theory, much less this one.

In a contrast to his early morning Tweetstorm, he backtracked a bit when asked if he has any proof of the allegations saying, “I hope it’s not true, but it looks like it is.”

"A lot of bad things have happened," Trump told reporters. "I want them all to get together. They will sit in a room. Hopefully they will be able to work it out among themselves.”

By the way, if you'd like a detailed explanation about the difference between a "spy" in Trump's campaign and the FBI investigating Russian interference, check out this Twitter thread.

Watch below.

And yes, we all remember what happens when you try to make up your own catch phrase:

Matt Bomer's Wet & Wild Broadway Debut

Matt Bomer

Magic Mike/White Collar star Matt Bomer dropped by The Tonight Show recently to chat on his Broadway debut in the revival of the gay-themed play, The Boys in the Band.

Bomer shared with Jimmy Fallon how during one of the performances of the play he didn’t check his props. That prop in question would be the towel he is supposed to wear after a shower onstage.

“My character takes a shower within the first five minutes of the play,” the handsome actor explained. “And I realized there was no towel for me when I got out of the shower.”

Bomer realized he had two options: either do the rest of the scene naked or put his underwear back on his soaking wet body.

Apparently, the wet underwear got the nod which means everyone won!

Bomer also shares that he’s taking his soon-to-be 13-year-old son Kit to the Tony Awards this year.

It’ll be the teen’s first awards show, but he assured his dad, “I know there’ll be a lot of people there but I don’t crack under pressure.”

In a sign Kit has been around show biz, he did add, “But, is someone going to do my hair?”

Clearly, the apple doesn’t fall very far from the tree…

Federal Judge Rules Donald Trump Can't Block Critics On Twitter

A federal judge has ruled Donald Trump cannot as President block his critics on Twitter
Donald Trump
A federal judge in New York has ruled that President Donald Trump is in violation of the First Amendment by blocking critics on Twitter for political speech.

From USA Today:

A group of Twitter users sued the president in July after the @realDonaldTrump account blocked them from replying to his messages. The seven users had each tweeted a message critical of the president before they were blocked.

“Blocking of the individual plaintiffs as a result of the political views they have expressed is impermissible under the First Amendment,” Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald wrote in the decision.

“While we must recognize, and are sensitive to, the president’s personal First Amendment rights, he cannot exercise those rights in a way that infringes the corresponding First Amendment rights of those who have criticized him,” she wrote.

The White House did not immediately have a comment on the ruling.

Now, how many of you think Trump will unblock anyone? Show of hands please...?

Trump Claims A Spy Infiltrated His Campaign

Donald Trump

Harking back to his accusations that the Obama administration "wire-tapped" his Trump Tower phone lines, Donald Trump took to Twitter to rant to his followers about the "Criminal Deep State," "Phony Collusion" and blah blah blah.

The Trumpster is annoyed at reports that an FBI informant made contact with the Trump campaign in 2016 as part of the federal investigation into Russian election meddling and ties to his team.

You know, that's what the FBI does when they have credible evidence folks are working with foreign players to influence an election.

Former FBI director James Comey called Trump out as our leader "who will lie about anything:"

Other smart folks chimed in as well:

Out Music: Ryan Amador "Loverboy"

Out singer-songwriter Ryan Amador shares his latest single, “Loverboy,” with a flirty/romantical music video directed by and co-starring (hot!) Jesse Scott Egan.

Amador's soulful pop/R&B vocals are perfectly paired with a shadowy, sexual tryst ;)

Amador sings:

And you make me feel safe
You make me feel loved
Even though you're trying to be
Tougher than you are
But you're such a loverboy
You're such a loverboy
And I see it in your eyes
