"No, I don't know anything about it. You're telling me about it for the first time and it doesn't sound like my voice at all," he told TODAY Friday about a Washington Post article saying Trump gave interviews while posing as a spokesman, sometimes named John Miller and at other times, John Barron.

Trump says he doesn't know anything about this tape uncovered by Washington Post from the 1990s when he posed as his own PR person under different names. If you listen to the voice and it's mannerisms it definitely is Trump. Then he goes off on Washington Post and Jeff Bezos himself. I wonder why???

And Hillary denies setting up a private server to circumvent the system with private communications, regardless if it meant compromising top secret information.

Trump and Hillary are the lowest forms of humanity.

Hillary handles herself better in these types of situations than Trump does. She has had more practice. It's all going to tumble on top of Trump now, and this is just the tip of the iceberg.

What do forensice analysts, voice recognitions specialists, and sound design experts have to say? Oh you mean Washington Post just threw this out there to see if it would stick? Ok.

Sorta reminds me of what Shark Tank denizen and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban had to say about Trump:

"There's that guy who'll walk into the bar and say anything to get laid. That's Donald Trump right now to a T. But it's all of us who are going to get f-----," Cuban said during an interview at the SkyBridge Alternatives (SALT) Conference in Las Vegas on Thursday night.

"We go way back, and it's a love-hate relationship," he said when conference organizer Anthony Scaramucci asked Cuban about the Republican presidential candidate.

He continued: "Everybody's got that friend that you just shake your head at. He's that guy who'd get drunk and fall over all the time, or just says dumb s--- all the time, but he's your friend."

To be clear, this is not a literal description: Trump can be embarrassing, but he famously doesn't drink alcohol, so he's not likely to fall over drunk.

Cuban also offered Hillary Clinton some advice on how to run against Trump: Get a running mate like Mark Cuban.

"I would get a vice-presidential candidate who's someone like me who would just throw bombs at Donald," he said. "And I would be like, 'Donald, I like you. We're friends, but you're a goddamn airhead.'"

I honestly don't think so.

People laugh and make fun of Trump. He's a reality TV idiot.

People deeply hate and distrust Hillary. They know she's the definition of the corrupt establishment that this whole Trump/Sanders phenomenon stems from.

There are 2 sayings that come to mind about what particular things rise/float to the top. 1 Is about cream. I don't think that's the one that applies here.

That still doesn't take away from what I said. The Clintons are trained politicians Trump is not a trained politician. He's learning as he goes and makes sh*t up. Obviously Clinton has a better time dealing with scandal because she's been through it before.

What do forensice analysts, voice recognitions specialists, and sound design experts have to say?

Why would a newspaper pay tens of thousands of dollars to expert when he apparently admitted it himself: A few weeks later, when People ran a story about Trump and Maples getting engaged, Trump was quoted saying that the John Miller call was a “joke gone awry.”

Trump seems to have posed as own spokesman in 1991 People conversation.



Let me guess......

Before we believe that Trump admitted to this silliness, we need lie detectors and the entire U.S. intelligence apparatus to make sure that that issue of People wasn't forged and surreptitiously placed on newsstands across the country?

I just don't think a significant portion of voters in this cycle give a crap about semantics and "gotcha" stuff. This election is about giving two middle fingers to the establishment, and nobody gives a rip about much else.

Not saying it's good. Just saying what it seems to be.

Wow a radical leftie doesn't like Trump?

Color me surprised.

The Washington Post had no proof of their claims. The Slate article submitted proof of claims. It's really that simple. When you make definitive statements about an individual it's best to submit proof.

A member of the Trump cult , right on cue.

Hey smartie pants: Where is this John Miller?

Yuknow?

How bout starting with that.

Or the ridiculous thought someone working for Trump is going to fake his voice, over and over to reporters -- THEN, the story coming out quoting the spokesman, and The Trump not saying a word about "someone faking it" back then.

Or the fact Trump admitted he role played the guy.

THINK for a few seconds. THINK!

If Trump did it, and lets be honest this sounds like a classic Trump move, he should admit it.

I love the balls, the drive, the self confidence.

In the 90s he admitted it was him, and claimed that it was all a joke. Now he's denying it because it makes him look as needy as he is.

We told y'all that the media was propping him up, that they were sitting on oppo material that would make him and y'all look ridiculous. You didn't listen - this is just the beginning.

That's a good analysis and kind of the way I have viewed him. I used to be part owner of a bar and had to endure many lectures from 'bar stool' political experts. Trump is 'that guy.'

The WP has been after Trump since the beginning of his candidacy, posting whatever **** they can get their hands on. They've gone full on yellow journalism in this pursuit.
