'On Saturday night, Trump used Twitter to thank a supporter named Nicole
Mincey (aka @protrump45), a self-described "black conservative" who
sells Trump merchandise. Back in June, the conservative website the
Daily Caller ran a profile of the ardent Trump fan, describing her as
someone who "grew up in poverty" and who was inspired to vote for Trump
after she realized Obama "did not do a good job for African Americans."
The Daily Caller also said that "she has demonstrated extreme bravery
for being a voice of black conservatism," and that she was "a beautiful
representation of black Republicans and overall minority conservatives."
There's just one small problem: Nicole Mincey doesn't actually exist.'

'Sadly, Nicole Mincey isn't the only Trump bot out there pushing
pro-Trump propaganda and merch. Over the weekend, several Twitter users
pointed out a number of fake accounts that have all been using photos of
T-shirt models in order to create fake personas online. One Trump bot
account (which has also been recently suspended) pulled a photo of a
"trendy Hispanic girl" (that is the actual search term) from apparel
mockup site Placeit, which allows users to promote their T-shirt designs
on models. The profile photo of "Nicole Mincey" was also pulled from
that site, as were a number of other fake accounts featuring photos of
primarily African-American and Latino fans. (If you can't win minority
voters over, make them up!) On Sunday, Placeit condemned the use of its
images for identity fraud and said it will be reporting every instance
of it.'

That's the budget that is still currently operating:
 
'United States[edit]
Federal government
The United States federal government's fiscal year is the 12-month
period ending on 30 September of that year, having begun on 1 October of
the previous calendar year. In particular, the identification of a
fiscal year is the calendar year in which it ends; thus, the current
fiscal year is 2017, often written as "FY2017" or "FY17", which began on
1 October 2016 and which will end on 30 September 2017.'
 
You lose.

Simple question, doofus:
 
Yes or no, has Donald Trump signed a budget?

Carried out by a US citizen and a legal immigrant:
 
'On December 2, 2015, 14 people were killed and 22 others were seriously
injured in a terrorist attack consisting of a mass shooting and an
attempted bombing at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino,
California. The perpetrators, Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, a
married couple living in the city of Redlands, targeted a San Bernardino
County Department of Public Health training event and Christmas party of
about 80 employees in a rented banquet room. Farook was a U.S.-born
citizen of Pakistani descent, who worked as a health department
employee. Malik was a Pakistani-born lawful permanent resident of the
United States.'

See what I mean about either you're lying or you're just ignorant?

In what way? She clearly did something wrong. Trump blew it out of all
proportion in order to wind up the more ignorant of his target audience.
 
You are proof it worked. You were played. You boght into his lies and
his false promises. Ultimately he will betray you.
 
It has nothing to do with the Mueller investigation or the grand jury
which is the subject of this thread.
 
So just more proof that when you have nothing to rebut with you attempt
to deflect.

'Trump gets a folder full of positive news about himself twice a day
It's known as the "propaganda document"'
 
<https://news.vice.com/story/trump-folder-positive-news-white-house?utm_source=vicenewsfbcaads>
 
Really: is anyone the least bit surprised?
 
'Twice a day since the beginning of the Trump administration, a special
folder is prepared for the president. The first document is prepared
around 9:30 a.m. and the follow-up, around 4:30 p.m. Former Chief of
Staff Reince Priebus and former Press Secretary Sean Spicer both wanted
the privilege of delivering the 20-to-25-page packet to President Trump
personally, White House sources say.
 
These sensitive papers, described to VICE News by three current and
former White House officials, don't contain top-secret intelligence or
updates on legislative initiatives. Instead, the folders are filled with
screenshots of positive cable news chyrons (those lower-third headlines
and crawls), admiring tweets, transcripts of fawning TV interviews,
praise-filled news stories, and sometimes just pictures of Trump on TV
looking powerful.'

Pathetic, yet completely unsurprising.
