Post-truth is pre-fascism, according to historian Timothy Snyder:
“You submit to tyranny,” he writes, “when you renounce the difference between what you want to hear and what is actually the case.”
Trumpy the Fascist Clown lies. A lot. Pretty much all the time. Like every utterance is a lie on some level. Obama was born in Kenya. His “university” will make you a millionaire. He won the popular vote if you subtract the 3-5 million illegal votes. The crowd size at his inauguration was “the largest audience ever to witness an inauguration, period…” Yea, the man is a lie machine. The Trump led GOP is pretty much a lie factory on its own, but Trumpy takes it to a whole new realm.
The press could do nothing but ask, at every occasion, about any lie and just keep asking. If you don’t know what to ask, ask the administration to elaborate on the crowd size, or Obama’s birth certificate or, or, how about the wiretapping accusation? Just keep asking, because they will keep digging, deeper and deeper. Let them dig. Encourage them to dig.
The truth is out there. Trumpy and the GOPers want to avoid it like the plague, but it’s out there. and it ain’t in the microwave.
Trumpy’s former BFFs over at Morning Joe ridiculed the microwave performance pretty hard, maybe they’re trying to make up for previous bad acts, who knows? What we do know, though, is that Trumpy the Man Child starting throwing shit. He ‘unfriended’ the host from his twitter account and then tweeted out a special needs veiled threat.
It is amazing how rude much of the media is to my very hard-working representatives. Be nice, you will do much better!– President of the fucking United States
So, uh, ‘hard working’ doesn’t necessarily mean doing something good. The German soldiers at Auschwitz were probably working really hard, too, but that doesn’t mean it’s anything to brag about. Second: It’s probably a good idea to be rude to people who lie in your face for fun. And thirdly: Be nice or what? Taking orders from special needs fascist is a real bad idea. Anyone ‘being nice’ to Team Trump is no friend of ours and we don’t give a shit what Team Trump does about. Ever.
