Craig Gilbert, Liar

A few weeks ago, Craig Gilbert permanently dishonored his name.

Now he's just adding to the pile of San Francisco Sidewalk-Paving Stuff atop his name.   See, "lying" comes in a few different forms; distortion of truth, not reporting ALL the truth, and flat-out lying.  Craig kinda likes all three.

Here's the setup:

...Johnson sharply disagreed with Trump’s decision to withhold the nearly $400 million in U.S. aid to Ukraine, which Congress approved, and the GOP lawmaker lobbied Trump hard to reverse the decision....
Plopping $400 million into the lap of one of the most corrupt countries in the world is not something a responsible President likes doing, Craig.

So what does Craig Gilbert, former reporter, now gossip columnist do next?  Well, he quotes a woman from an EXTREEEEEEEEEEME Left outfit, of course!!

...Senate expert Sarah Binder of the Brookings Institution said Johnson’s staunch defense of the president is “emblematic of this world where lawmakers are first and foremost on Trump’s team or not.” ...
Actually, Johnson is rather independent.  But don't let reality interfere with Lefty Liars!!

Here's a rare event:  Gilbert suddenly likes an Army officer.  Figures:  the Army officer in question is a liar and has had three job offers from.........where else?.............Ukraine.  Nonetheless, Gilbert wants us to think Light Colonel Polly PrissyPants is a genuine war hero and a certified expert.

...Johnson in his letter accused  Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a Ukraine expert who sits on on the National Security Council, and other Executive Branch staff of trying to undermine Trump. Without citing any evidence, Johnson claimed Vindman and others "have never accepted President Trump as legitimate and resent his unorthodox style and his intrusion onto their ‘turf.’” ...
Light Colonel PrissyPants has been credibly accused of bad-mouthing the United States, but he's Gilbert's hero; after all, he has a Purple Heart!  And of course, what Craig forgets to mention is that the President, not PrissyPants, makes foreign policy.  That would be important, except for Craig's single-"minded" crusade to destroy RoJo and the President.

Then there's the "We Don't Report ALL the Truth" trick.

...The senator has said in interviews that Trump’s hang-ups about the Ukraine aid included not just general corruption but the president’s own conviction that Ukraine played a role in tarnishing him during the 2016 campaign....
Well, yah, Craig, do NOT mention the Ukraine court's finding of Ukrainian interference in the election.  Do NOT mention that the Ukrainian ambassador to the US wrote an op-ed in The Hill bashing Trump.  Do NOT mention the Cinton/Democrat National committee efforts to find dirt on Trump's campaign people.

And of course, gossip-columnist Gilbert uses the Democrat Talking Point!!

....critics accuse him of promoting conspiracy theories....
If it walks like a theory, talks like a theory, and smells like the Obama White House .......
