Re: CNN cuts off its own testicles

Fine, without even looking it up I'll accept your correction - producer, not exporter.
How does this change the import of the point?  Not one bit.
CNN redefined the terms by adding "petroleum hydrocarbons" to the conversation.  But even as it does that, it concedes that under Trump we became the leading producer of oil.
So who is being the pedant?  Does Trump have to speak in technical terms all the time?  Like those guys who complain when Trump says "the best economy ever" or "the lowest unemployment rate ever" and people say "but we've only been tracking this since 19xx" or whatever.  It's so stupid.
You want a lie, here is a lie:  "I will sign a universal health care bill into law by the end of my first term as president that will cover every American and cut the cost of a typical family's premium by up to $2,500 a year."
Did yours go down?  Mine doubled.   
You want a lie: "Benghazi attacks were the result of a video". 
The number of jobs created and people lifted out of poverty during Bill Clinton’s presidency was "a hundred times" what it was under President Ronald Reagan."
That last one is so patently absurd but gee I don't recall even the level of outrage over Trumps tweet about the number of people standing in a line.  Trump haters are off the charts they harp on everything - meanwhile there is an entire beautiful world out there to enjoy. Even if all you enjoy is politics, there are 1000s of other politicians to criticize. 
What has Congress done since Pelosi got the gavel?   No, don't look over there!  Look at this tweet exaggerating the line outside the stadium.
