The definition for the adjective “EXACT”…..”
- not approximated in any way; precise.
Now that is by the rules of grammar….but that does not mean the it is according to Trump, as we know he makes up his own rules as he goes along………
I bring this up because of the overuse of the word “exact” by the president when talking about the ‘transcript’ of the phone call he had with the Ukrainian president.
When he released a “transcript” of his July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, President Trump called it a “an exact word-for-word transcript of the conversation, taken by very talented stenographers.” Trump could not have been more explicit in his claim that the White House had, in full transparency, published a complete account of the call. “All you have to do is read what they wrote down, the stenographers,” Trump said later, “They wrote down an exact call.”
Well that constant claim by Trump is what he does best….LIES!
But Hell do not believe me for I am a “Never Trumper” (so I have been called because I will not blindly follow this person)…..below is the ‘transcript’ of the phone call…..
I bring your attention to page one of the transcript and the paragraph that begins with the word ‘caution’……
Sorry Donald but it is a Memo not an ‘exact’ transcript of the phone call.
Maybe some of the ‘geniuses’ in the White House should explain the difference to our president for apparently he knows not.
And then a US Army soldier stepped forward…..
Democrats said Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman’s more than 10 hours of testimony Tuesday on Capitol Hill in the Trump impeachment inquiry was “extremely disturbing,” and key among the details was his description of the July 25 phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky, as well as its accompanying transcript—which, per CNN, Vindman said was “mostly accurate.” However, three sources said to be familiar with Vindman’s deposition tell the New York Times that Vindman testified certain words and phrases were left out of the White House memo of the call—omissions indicated by an ellipsis in at least one case—and that he tried to get them put back in. In some cases, his edits were incorporated, but two notable ones were ignored, he said.
One part of the Trump-Zelensky conversation Vindman said had vanished was when the Ukrainian president directly mentioned “Burisma,” the name of the energy company that Joe Biden’s son Hunter worked for. Instead of “Burisma,” “the company” was used in the transcript. The second omission Vindman flagged, noted by an ellipsis: a part in the chat in which Trump mentioned recordings of Joe Biden, a seeming reference to a 2018 event in which the ex-VP talked about trying to convince Ukraine to dump its prosecutor general. There were three transcript ellipses in total, which now raises questions about the other two. In September, the White House said the presence of the ellipses didn’t indicate “missing words or phrases,” but a “trailing off of a voice or pause.” It said brackets or redaction indicators would’ve been used for missing words or phrases.
The GOP attacks on the person of this war veteran is despicable….soldiers do not have a political ambition…..Trump and the slugs would know this if they ever served in the military of this country.
The GOP can kiss their support for the military good-bye because all along it was a spurious support at best……fake concern from fake people.
