#1 Trumpisms Presented as Lies and Exaggerations
and Not Political Hyperbole
Doing so is Fake News!

Especially If Discussions on Nuclear Disarmament, Voter Unhappiness... are Ignored!

"You've got to remember, he is a real estate guy, a promoter ... 
And so he comes from a world where you exaggerate; there's a lot of hyperbole."

Michael Bloomberg

"I don't see a train wreck."
You have to translate what he says and just focus on what he does."
Nassim Taleb


Example 1. What Trump Said on Puerto Rico's Hurricane
 “Fifty Times Last Original Number NO WAY!” Trump's Source

What Trump Meant Requires Interpretation

Direct Hit cause about 60 deaths, Increase had little to do with FEMA performance.
 Culprit for much larger death toll was poor infrastructure.

  Failure was federal and local government politicians. 
   Puerto Rico competes for Federal funds with education, the military,
US social programs, support for the elderly.
Opportunity Cost of more spending should be considered relevant.

The Fake News is Dominated by Trump's Use of Data, Hyperbole,
What Was Not Being Reported Was Important,
Most Deaths Were Caused People Inactions Over Many Year,
 It Must be Discussed, Regardless of Personality


Example 2. Trump Campaign Message

Trump's Claimed Actual Unemployment was 42%

Was It Fake News
 Exaggerations, Another Lie, Hyperbole?

What Trump Meant Requires Interpretation.
Trump's campaign statement should have said the US employs about 60%
    of the population which means 40% are not working, they are unemployed.

Understanding Unemployment is complicated. Six measurements are required.
   Headline unemployment is the lowest estimate.
It is used by anyone wanting to simplify or some personal need.
To many, less than 5% unemployment is Fake News.
   Trump used data important to his constituency.
Reporting it any other way is Fake News

It also Under Reported Safety Net Effect on Middle and
 Over Reported Income Inequality


Politicians, Economist and the Media have been allowed
Choice of Measure for many years.
This is Unintended Fake News.

Editor's Note:

The media and the economics community
feel little responsibility to communicate relevant truth.
   Doing so is difficult for the media plus it causes poor ratings.

Media and economists must analysis
what is behind Trump's thoughts in relation to policy.

Example 1 Birthright citizenship.
It is probably a 14th amendment question.
If so, it's political hyperbole move on to other real policy related news.

If He can eliminate Birthright Citizenship, report pro and cons.

Why the United States Has Birthright Citizenship and Steve Bannon Oxford Q and A
has interesting implications, but few in the media acknowledge.
The why of the recent populist movement requires investigation.


Example 2 “I have the support of the police,
the support of the military, the support of the ‘Bikers for Trump’ —
I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough —
until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad.”
President Donald Trump, in an apparent threat
 of physical violence against his political opponents.


 Chris Mathews can make opposing sides play Hardball.

Jon Stewart Says Trump Appeals to Media's “own narcissism”

Where he gets incorrect ideas,
like Finns ranking to lower fire danger,
 would be news.


One Problem: Finding a Knowledgeable Person
since much of our news comes from
Authors, Think Tanks and Academic "Experts most of whom
are prejudice on one side of contentious issues.


U.S. unemployment rate

Question: Where is the discussion on the Nuclear Treaty?
Is Almost No Reporting by the Mass Media Fake News?

More from the Editor

The Trump victory was a reaction to liberal Democratic Identity Poetics.

Richard Nixon's election was a reaction to the liberal Great Society.

Many Trumps Tweets are Political Hyperbola, should be ignored
even though they are easy and good for ratings.

See Bush Family Business Oil Dynasty
Was the Bush Family Trump Without the Rough Edges?

This is a part of the "Cycles of American History."

See Why Trump Won and American President

Trump is effectively unique.
Ben Franklin said we have "a Republic, if you can keep it."
It has never been easy or  more nations would accomplish it.

Examples of Cleaning the Swamp?
..and sharp cuts to the budgets of the State Department and the US Agency for International Development. Trump will emphasize hard power over soft, and he'll use deep cuts to federal health insurance, the federal pension system, and other social programs to pay for it. The Trump budget doesn't matter much, since Congress controls spending, but it's a good indicator of the president's policy priorities.
