Dan Rather: People Are Going to Die From Trump’s Budget Plan, You Know

“Rather than investing in what will truly make America great, this philosophy pounds its chest with false bravado,” he wrote in a Facebook note. “People will die because of this budget. People will suffer. Diseases will spread, and cures will not be found … our nation will be much darker and more dangerous.”

    When you have a scandal named after you for fake news and lose your cushy job over your lies, somehow hyperbole rings even more hollow than normal.

      I figured all his time was spent trying to write a novel that will give him a Nobel award for fiction.

    why would a guy with a couple of years of J-school think he even has a handle on how to make america great, thats the arrogance that sours so many on “journalists” they are dilletantes.

    The first to go will be liberals in the media killing themselves. So no harm no foul.

    Hopefully Dan Rather will be one of those people.

      I suspect that Dan Rather might live in a gated community, so he is only in danger if he get close to his gardener or pool cleaner; absolutely no chance of danger then.

    Cuts? What was he thinking? He should have tried to see if he could beat Obo’s record ballooning of the debt by spending on useless bureaucracy and inefficiency. Heck, beggar future generations – it’s the Democratic-progressive way.

    Diseases are already spreading, diseases without cures, antibiotic-resistant diseases, because of previous Presidential and Government policies. Trump is the only President who seems to be doing something about infected unscreened immigrants being prevented from bringing these diseases into the USA. Bad figurative language there, Dan “Fake News” Rather.

    Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!
    Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes…
    The dead rising from the grave!
    Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!

      Oh, Adolf, how could you?

  • Millie_Woods

    Well he’s right about the nation being ‘much darker’. Fifty years of unimpeded immigration from the third world will do that.

    • Etobicoke_Gladiator

      Ah, but don’t worry, it’s all worth it cuz the cultural vibrancy is so so so vibrant!
