Trump's 'TRUTH' -

 

"Trump's alternative reality is dark, divisive and pessimistic, and it tends to position him and his supporters as heroic victims of injustice. Despite this--or maybe because of it--his reckless assertions are weapons that often work. He commandeers the traditional news cycle and makes visceral connections with voters....

 

Trump showed solidarity with the politically incorrect and advertised his iconoclasm. By flouting fact-checkers and making journalists his enemy, he is driving home the theme that his turbulent presidency is a struggle to the death with a despised Washington elite.

Trump has discovered something about epistemology in the 21st century. The truth may be real, but falsehood often works better.... (ask Putin)

 

Trump has employed this weapon at specific times, often when he is losing control of the national story line....

 

For Trump's allies, this is a measure of strategic brilliance, not defective character. "He understands how to make something an issue and elevate the discussion by saying things that are contrary, perhaps even unproved," explains Roger Stone, a former adviser to Trump,..... "He has the ability to change the subject to what he wants to talk about."...

 

"Hey, look," he (Trump) said. "I can't be doing so badly, because I'm President and you're not."

Trump promised to defeat ISIS within 30 days.

He also promised to provide proof of the wiretapping by President Obama this week.

James Comey completely established that Trump's tweets were lies.

Where is the GOP indignation?

He also established that the FBI is investigating the Trump campaign and personnel.  Where is the Republican demand for multiple Congressional Committees?

Where is the demand for Lock Him Up?

 

 

LOL. It's different now.........

In the WH press conference today Old Spicer was asked if Trump would reign in his holidays and trips to Florida which are costing tax payers $3 million a pop.  He is set to be the most vacationing president ever despite his criticism of Obama for his time spent on the golf course.  Old Spicer dodged the question by trying to point a finger at George W.

Trump and Mulvaney have been trying to convince Americans that they know what they heck they are doing with regards the budget.  So they have drastically cut domestic programs and departments such as the EPA and Education to pay for the expansion of the military.  Many of these programs help poorer Trump voters but I guess he doesn't really care or is just too stupid to put two and two together.   But apart from that Trump's promise to drastically cut taxes and spend billions on infrastructure hasn't even been factored into this "balanced" budget as yet.    What we are seeing is a total lack of understanding as to how to run a country.  Frankly it's a disaaaaaaaaster!

Trump doesn't apologize for anything.  This will be like the birth certificate story with people supposedly "looking into it."  This is just a diversion from his Russian connections.  Trump will continue to make stuff up while he and Bannon dream up policies that will hurt the country, including those who voted for them.

 

He'll never admit he lied or apologize for it. On to the next fake news item.........

"It was déjà vu on Wednesday: President Trump traveled to Detroit and Nashville for campaign-style rallies, sat down for an interview with Fox News and criticized a federal judge for blocking his travel ban.

Through it all, Mr. Trump repeated a series of misleading assertions and falsehoods,....
