Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, January 16, 2020

Donald Trump threatened the UK with a 25 per cent tariff on its cars unless the British government officially accused Iran of breaking the 2015 nuclear deal, it has been reported. The secret threat last week, first reported by The Washington Post, which cited unnamed European officials, would have seen the tariff imposed on all European automobile imports to the US unless Britain, France and Germany agreed to the ultimatum.

I think it is more blackmail than bribery.

It could be both.

Trumphluffers are ok with it either way.

"Donald Trump threatened the UK with a 25 per cent tariff on its cars unless the British government officially accused Iran of breaking the 2015 nuclear deal"

The debate between whether Trump is evil or crazy is moot, he's both.

Impeach. Get rid of him now, for the good of the country and everyone, EVERYONE, who lives in it.

Of course.

Because Trump never extorted a foreign government before with a perfect phone call.

You know this is real. It's fits a pattern. In a week we'll have all the names we need.

Tell me that you care?

'False cause' logical fallacy

More like actuarial prediction.

The pattern is:
1. Accusations are made anonymously that Trump broke the law.
2. His knob polishers attack the messenger, the deep state, Obama, Hillary and Biden.
3. Trump admits he did it, but he is allowed to, because he knows the evidence is about to come out.
4. His knob polishers say some Dem did something vaguely related, and laws are for other people.
5. Repeat.

So it's a prediction? Anyone can predict anything. I could predict you will get over your TDS. But I'd be wrong.

My point stands. Your assertion is a logical fallacy. If you wish to debate that, I'd be glad to. But I'm not going to play zedgames and chase your moving goalposts.

Of course he doesn't care.

The only thing that idiotic chirping about anonymous sources does is reveal the willfully ignorant and stupid.

Because, as you say, we'll have confirmation and names in a week, along with another anonymously sourced story.

Which they'll say the same thing about, ignoring the fact that they said it about this story and it's now out in the open as true.

We all know goatman, sheeple and nulli et al will never get over their TDS (Trump ---------- Syndrome).

Those guys are on a 100% protein diet at this point.

#17 -- logical fallacy of "ad populum". If you were half as smart as you think you are you would have known this.

You would also know that when you claim to have someone plonked, you shouldn't reply to their posts. That reveals that you lied about the plonking

I hope this helps, monster brain.

JPW, this "Golly gee, is goatman talking about me again? I had no idea since I have him plonked" game you play is more easily believed if you don't respond to my posts, which you did as recently as an hour ago,

Your giant brain can't figure this out? Really?

There's something really funny about food lovers and grill masters carrying water... er, ketchup, to Trump's well-done steak.

I'm waiting for one of them to claim that well done with ketchup is the best and only way, buhleeeeve them, to eat a steak.
