Trump Surrogate Dismisses Fact-Checking As 'Elitist' And 'Out Of Touch'

    In the aftermath of a Trump speech, the key is off the cuff fact checking and a general mockery of Mr. Trump's use of the Prompter, as if his opponent doesn't used one.

    Today's Trump speech on trade was accompanied by annotated text to demonstrate to the media the factual nature of the seven point speech.

     By morning they will declare the speech as racist and a failed pivot as opposed to Hillary Clinton who has "found her voice" every day.

are you really that thick? the point is that earlier in the campaign trump extensively criticized clinton for using one and bragged that he didn't need one. (remember "i've always said, if you run for president, you shouldn't be allowed to use teleprompters"?)

By morning they will declare the speech as racist and a failed pivot as opposed to Hillary Clinton who has "found her voice" every day.

i enjoy the sound of that kind of whining. it's the sound of losing.

When lies roll off the tounge so easily, one doesn't need a teleprompter.

Heck, Mayor, I'm sure it has been brought up only because the Hannitys and Levins pounded the telepromt nonsense when Pres Obama used one. There's no more Abe Lincoln's, FDR's or John F Kennedy's. How bout that Benghazi ruling today?

Willfully ignorant and unhinged is more like it.

The teleprompter keeps Trump focused on the message he is trying to convey to the media. He has proven he doesn't need it to connect to the people. Obama is lost without the teleprompter and Hillary comes off as a shrill shrew, whether she uses one or not.

Hillary just doesn't want to talk about Benghazi anymore, as the report issued today doesn't put her in jail, but isn't exactly a big endorsement to her so called leadership skills. HRC sat in a 3 hr. Whitehouse meeting where she worried about how Benghazi might affect her legacy. This while Americans were being killed real-time via satellite hook-up. If that doesn't disqualify HRC to be President -- What does? Mike Flynn 'Middle Class Mike'

Wrong Mikey.

The military failed to follow orders and in the end it was determined that the military would not have been able to reach the Embassy in time to prevent the deaths.

There were 13 attacks and 60 plus deaths during the Bush/Cheney administration and not one was turned into a political public circus like the Republican's have done with this incident.

Republicans and your guy Trump are an embarrassment and disgrace to our country for denigrating the deaths of the victims and their families, with the publically (stated) hope of politically undermining the former Secretary of State's campaign for president, all on the American taxpayers tab.

I’ll leave you with this:

Ambassador's sister: I don't blame Clinton for Benghazi:

‘"…I do not blame Hillary Clinton or Leon Panetta," Stevens said in an interview published Tuesday with The New Yorker's Robin Wright, referring to the former secretaries of State and defense, respectively. "They were balancing security efforts at embassies and missions around the world. And their staffs were doing their best to provide what they could with the resources they had. The Benghazi Mission was understaffed. We know that now. But, again, Chris knew that. It wasn’t a secret to him. He decided to take the risk to go there. It is not something they did to him. It is something he took on himself."’

Instead, Stevens remarked that if any entity had any culpability, it was Congress for the State Department's budget.

‘"Perhaps if Congress had provided a budget to increase security for all missions around the world, then some of the requests for more security in Libya would have been granted,"’ Stevens told Wright.
