Not exactly, but with all the thoughts he prompts with his outrageous distortions, he produces outrage fatigue, lying so often and changing his tune so frequently, everything blurs together. He has taken us past a “post truth” politics to a post reality politics.
If you haven’t been driven totally nuts, you may have noticed how the boy who would be king said in an interview there was nothing wrong with receiving information from foreign agents, it just being more opposition research.
He changed his tune a couple of times at least, after even a couple of Republican senators gently chided Trump for basically saying to all the world, send us your dirt on my opponents. The last version I heard was his claiming in front of the three nodding heads on Fox and Friends that of course he would notify the FBI, because no one loves America more than he does.
I could go on and on, but that would clearly get me closer to the loony bin and prevent me from writing at all. I just want to make this point, a suggestion as to how to interpret Trump’s words. Whatever he says, just flip it to the opposite. So, when Trump says “no one loves America more” than he does, just switch the “more ” to “less”.
He cares so much about himself, there can’t be much love left for the rest of us.
And when he says “believe me”, as he often does, translate it into “don’t believe me”. And if he says it twice, really don’t believe him. When he says he has solved a problem, it really is he hasn’t solved the problem: he just wants us to think so, like in the case of North Korea and its nukes. Remember how he said after that first meeting with his bosom buddy Kim Jung Un that we could sleep easier because the nuclear threat was gone?
Not only is it not gone, it is undiminished, and is likely even stronger. But no problem, president deranged Don still believes in Kim Jung Un, and his own ability to sway him.
I just can’t wait till he tells us how he has solved the Iran problem.
