    WHAT'S TRUE: In 2000, Mike Pence publicly downplayed the risks of smoking cigarettes and stated "smoking doesn't kill."

    WHAT'S FALSE: Pence's point was that not everyone who smokes dies from smoking-related illnesses, and he acknowledged the health risks of smoking after referencing fairly accurate statistics about them.
    Mike Pence has received funds from tobacco companies totaling over $100k.

    Sadly not true. I kind of wish it were though - might give me hope that Trump is not as bad as he seems!

    Trump should delete twitter. And instead start a diary. Offline.

    I wonder whether someone will bite and sue him for some form of defamation or similar?

    What we all want in a President. A temperament of a 3yo. Who can tantrum. And who uses words they do not understand.

    You should follow Andy Borowitz on FB, he's the satirist for The New Yorker, his FB updates are one of the only things preserving my faith in humanity right now.

    ETA: that and the Biden/Obama pictures

    Did anyone watch the interview with trump tonight when he said he won't be taking the 400k a year salary ? But he will accept $1 of it as it's not compulsory. My thoughts are 1. He doesn't need the $$ and 2. He's admitted in the past that hasn't paid income tax for 18yrs. I think it would be more having to do with paying income tax and he may have that fear of being audited for the last 18yrs

    I cannot stand looking at him let alone listen to him so I just can't (I am also childish doing this I guess!)

    I was reading some trashy article where Ivanka was saying that 'he doesn't want to move' and 'will still take his holidays' and 'fly his own jet'... or maybe he will suck it up and be the President. Or maybe not. We will see+

    I love this post from Dan Rather, it's so true.

    'A lot of you have asked me on this page, what can you do in the wake of this election. It's a question that seems to be echoing throughout this country. At the same time, I have also heard, and have written myself, about the failure of too much of the press to hold the candidates accountable, the sinkhole of "false equivalence", the lack of investigative reporting, the vapidity of the cacophonous - and often fact-free - chatter on cable news, the fear that we are entering a post-truth era.

    This is all very true and very concerning, but there has also been some wonderful investigative reporting in this election - the Washington Post comes to mind. And there has been smart campaign coverage. There is no shortage of long, thoughtful articles that are worth a read. The problem is that our current journalism business model doesn't seem to support the better instincts of the press as much as it should.

    So if you want to know what you can do, please choose to support the press. If you find a news source you like and you think it is doing a good job, pay for the subscription. This doesn't just help the bottom line but it is a vote of confidence in the system. Share smart, thoughtful pieces on social media and in emails to your friends. Let's run up the clicks and views of the best of journalism. Also, I think we can not be passive with our news any longer. If you like what you see, let the publicans and journalists know through all the digital tools at your disposal. If you don't like what you're seeing, let them know as well. Or turn it off, refuse to follow the click bait.

    The press is a vital partner in out democratic process. It is under incredible strains from a drastically changing media landscape and a potentially hostile in-coming administration. As citizens we should care deeply about this and vow to do something to help.

    I would like my page to be a beacon for the best of journalism. If you find an article worth sharing, let me know. I can't respond to everything but I will try to help spread the word. We must all be in this together.'
