    The worst part is the Trump supporters believe all denials even when confronted with video and audio.

    I wonder why the link didn't work for everybody. I certainly didn't have to pay and no demand for money was made.

    There are some fucked up ads that can pop up in Southern States.

    I remember traveling to Florida a week or two weeks after Trump had been sworn in and I saw the weirdest fuckin' commercial while eating breakfast at my hotel. It was plea to citizens about how President Trump is already under attack by the democrats and how they are going to take guns away and trying to prevent his administration from passing any laws. He had barely settled in and had not done anything as of yet besides sending his flunky (Spicey) out to claim larger inauguration crowd size...

    At the end of the commercial, it was a number to dial and donate to support President Trump. I am like "WTF did I just watch???"....

    Like I said before, only a complete idiot would believe that lying sack of shit Hoekstra.

    http://www.therepublic.com/2018/01/11/us-united-states-netherlands/

    WASHINGTON — The State Department on Thursday disavowed 2015 comments made by the new U.S. ambassador to the Netherlands in which he said that the “Islamic movement” was creating chaos in Europe and suggested extremists were burning Dutch politicians and cars.

    Under Secretary of State for Public Affairs Steve Goldstein told reporters that Ambassador Pete Hoekstra’s comments were wrong and don’t reflect the U.S. view of the Netherlands. Hoekstra clashed with journalists at a Wednesday news conference in The Hague and would not retract his 2015 remarks.

    “The State Department does not agree with those statements,” Goldstein told reporters. “That is not the language we would use.”

    “The ambassador made mistakes in 2015, made comments that should not have been made,” he added. “He recognizes that.”

    Goldstein said Hoekstra would give an interview to a Dutch news outlet on Friday to clarify the matter and would tour various Dutch communities this weekend.

    “We are hopeful that we can move beyond this,” he said. “He’s excited about the opportunity to be able to help the people of the Netherlands.”

    Hoekstra had already apologized for the 2015 comments in December but refused to answer when Dutch journalists sought clarification on Wednesday shortly after he presented his to Dutch King Willem-Alexander. He was asked repeatedly about the comments he made at a 2015 conference, which made headlines last year when he described his own words to a Dutch reporter as “fake news.” Hoekstra later denied using the phrase “fake news.”

    In a statement last year, Hoekstra said: “I made certain remarks in 2015 and regret the exchange during the Nieuwsuur interview. Please accept my apology.”

    Hoekstra said Wednesday he didn’t want to revisit the issue — but that did not stop Dutch reporters from pressing unsuccessfully for a clarification.

    One reporter told him: “This is the Netherlands, you have to answer questions,” while another asked if the ambassador could name a politician who had been set on fire in recent years.

    Hoekstra, a former Republican congressman from Michigan, was born in the northern Dutch city of Groningen before his family emigrated to the United States. Hoekstra previously served as chair of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and was the ranking Republican on the Committee until 2011.

    I was being sarcastic. I wasn't sure why you pointed out that they were in Rotterdam, since he's the ambassador to that country. Maybe I missed something.
