Look. It seems very clear what happened here. Trump misspoke. He threw in Colorado in his building-a-big-beautiful-wall riff, forgetting that it isn't a border state. Which isn't great! But politicians make mistakes like this. Remember Barack Obama said there were 57 states on the campaign trail in 2008?
But because this is Trump, he is incapable of just saying "yeah, I made a verbal slip. Big whoop." And so, he makes a ridiculous excuse -- I was kidding! There were people in the audience from Colorado! -- that turns what is a small story into a much bigger story.

If they will pay it, they will charge it, market forces, and not a complaint.
Been to any concerts lately? Wow, ticket prices really went up this last year.
The concerts I went to this year were either sell-outs, or close to it. It's a great sign about our economy, people have more disposal income, so they are willing to pay the extra.
Thanks you Trump for making the economy so much better.

Right out of Nixon's playbook, uncanny...


DJ Trump to Tell Federal Agencies to Cut New York Times, Washington Post Subscriptions -- Update
Dow Jones News1:26 PM Eastern Daylight Time Oct 24, 2019

By Andrew Restuccia

WASHINGTON -- The White House is planning to instruct federal agencies to not renew their subscriptions to the New York Times and the Washington Post, administration officials said, escalating President Trump's attacks on the media outlets.

"Not renewing subscriptions across all federal agencies will be a significant cost saving -- hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars will be saved," White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in an email Thursday.

Ms. Grisham declined to provide further details, and it wasn't immediately clear how the White House intended to compel agencies to cancel the subscriptions or how soon the order would take effect. The White House was still working on implementing the directive as of Thursday morning, an administration official said.

Spokeswomen for the Times and the Post declined to comment.

The decision comes days after Mr. Trump told his staff to cancel the White House's print subscriptions to the Post and the Times after expressing frustration with their coverage.

"We don't even want it in the White House anymore," Mr. Trump said of the Times during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity that aired Monday night. "We're going to probably terminate that and the Washington Post. They're fake."

Print editions of the Times and the Post weren't among the newspapers delivered to the White House on Thursday, a White House official said.

The president has repeatedly railed against and sought to discredit the newspapers' coverage of his administration, including its dealings with Ukraine and the resulting impeachment inquiry in the House. On Twitter and during campaign rallies, Mr. Trump has attacked the news media, calling it the "enemy of the people" and dismissing some of the country's most venerable journalism outlets as "fake news."

In June, Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter that a Times story represented a "virtual act of Treason." The publisher of the New York Times, A.G. Sulzberger, responded with an opinion article in The Wall Street Journal, saying the "new attack crosses a dangerous line in the president's campaign against a free and independent press."

Mr. Trump is an avid consumer of the news, and he regularly reads the Times and the Post, according to aides who also privately acknowledged that they expect him to continue doing so, despite the directive.

It wasn't immediately known how many subscriptions to the Times and the Post the federal government has. Federal employees are eligible for free digital subscriptions to the Post using their government email addresses.

Officials at the General Services Administration and the White House Office of Management and Budget didn't immediately provide data about the total number of subscriptions.

Government officials read and rely on the country's major newspapers, which have reporters stationed around the country and across the globe and document everything from bombings in Syria to the passage of bills in Congress. Canceling the subscriptions could limit officials' access to vital information that could assist them in doing their jobs.

Why would ANY rational, open-minded person, from D.C. to Elba, Alabama want to read only one side, right or left, of any news story? Both the NYT and WAPO are insanely far left, so why not stop paying for them on the taxpayers' dime? Many here would say the same about Fox News, but at least Fox makes a distinction between their neutral journalists and their openly biased opinion hosts; the NYT and WAPO conceal, mix, and/or just lie about the distinction, and the LAT is not much better.

My local (McClatchey) far left rag is an embarrassment, but it's my only source of occasionally useful local news. About once or twice a year its reportage justifies my subscription cost. The rest is total far left nonsense cut and pasted from the NYT, WAPO, and the AP. We see hard evidence every day of the saying, "If Trump walked on water, those three would claim he can't swim".

as noted any FBI office you ever walk in has FUX on, I am sure same with military nbases and immigration and customs and so on. When dems win then NO base in the world can listen to Fux and same with FBI and so on, and the only two newspapers allowed are the NYT (again the one that has one of the CIA assets get us into a war with fake news) and washington Post owned by an ultra right winger Bezos. all other paperss in the USA are right wing, from largest circulating one the Fux owned wall street journal, atlanta journal, chicgo tribune, dallas , Oklahoma, Vegas, that puke gives boatload of money to the right wing, pittsburg (richard Mellon Scafe even paid for paula jones lawsuit and nose job), on and on. and so on.
