It's not news anymore. It's indoctrination! Take everything/every source with a grain of salt. Hypocrisy is everywhere......

Re: The New Joke Thread

That means she has more gravitational force.

Wouldn't that mean she's more "attractive"?

Watch the actual Anderson Cooper clip. It’s from hurricane Ike and he steps from shallow to deep water to show how treacherous flood areas can be. There is no deception involved.

I didn’t notice the last photo was a weatherman. They’re notorious for exaggerating as it’s the only time they get let out from in front of the blue screen. It’s almost epidemic.

And yes, all media is biased these days, including the wing nut “truth tellers” who purposely and knowingly use photos out of context to smear “the other side”.

Nice edit of your post. Good thing you googled it.

"Watch the actual Anderson Cooper clip. It’s from years ago and has nothing to do with hurricanes.

I didn’t notice the last photo was a weatherman. They’re notorious for exaggerating as it’s the only time they get let out from in front of the blue screen.

Perhaps that's the problem. Twitter is NOT the media.

Let's just chuckle and move along if you don't get or like the joke...

You're referring to Trump Jr.

I posted a meme of reporters over acting during a hurricane. The meme doesn't make any claim that it was hurricane Florence. Whatsoever. But thanks for pointing out how long Anderson Cooper has been faking the news. If AC was really trying to stay away from traffic, he would have been up on the sidewalk with his cameraman, instead of in a roadside ditch.

Re: The New Joke Thread

Please let's stick to jokes here, nothing else?

Yes many will offend or fall flat, just ignore those.

Re: The New Joke Thread

The mods cut the JOKE thread a lot of slack that we wouldn't cut a POLITICS thread.
