Hatred makes people say and imagine lots of weird things. Don’t have a clue where “real estate homes” comes from. But hatred does make people sick. Give you that.
I think he blamed it on Trump when it blew up in his face tho EH ... that's pretty much all you need to do to be a running shoe in.That’s what the governor of NY State did. You don’t hear about that, because he could still run for President as a Democrat.
if trump did that - wow, the left would explode. But Crickets.
New York City officials have said at least 80% of coronavirus patients who were put on ventilators there ultimately diedHe subsequently helped other states when their cases increased as NY no longer needed them.
Thanks, I’ll have to check that out.
Yes. I understand that the reality of his behaviour is not funny. It’s hard to believe it’s real, so maybe I find some weird humour in that dissonant space or else I’d probably just be sad or angry every time he opened his mouth (or tweeted). Finding a sense of humour while getting through the BS is helpful.I don't think Trump is funny at all, he's dangerous and many in the USA are defending him no matter what he does. On top of that there are conspiracy theories abounding that are diluting peoples abilities to reason their way out of a paper bag.
In my mind he is a "gas lighter" a form of cognitive dissonance. Whether he is even aware that he is doing it or not, I don't know. A population can become a victim of this type of abuse. Victims can be persuaded that black is white by creating "reasonable doubt" a technique that is often used to sway juries and cause them to doubt their own perceptions of what's real. This is referred to as "the illusory truth effect", which is when falsehoods are repeated enough, they are internalized as true by the victim(s) simply due to the effect of repetition. We see this with Trump all the time when he says something totally insane then denies he even said it despite the fact there are numerous videos and witnesses to confirm that he said it. Continuous lies from the president and minimization of the truth convinces a victim they are imagining things or suffering from memory loss, rather than relying on what they actually hear, see, or even their own experience.....again due to the effects of repetition.
To me, even news reporters, whether they're from CNN or Fox have become victims too. No longer do they report the facts or the 5 W's and leave their opinions out of the loop but we are given every biased opinion as part of their reporting. Rarely are news reports on the same page when it comes to the news and it further creates the perfect storm for any abusive leader to manipulate the masses when he wants to claim only he holds the truth and everyone else's facts are fake. This should be a huge red flag for the American public or any country, but it's not. Trump is definitely a malignant narcissist IMO but we don't have to accept his twisted narratives and the only way anyone or a country as a whole can escape this perverse dialogue is to return to trusting their own reality.
Trump has succeeded in dividing the country and even the world and no I don't think he is or ever will be the only one who has ever done this. It's been done before and will be again. Some do this by being less flambouyant, well spoken and smooth. They appeal to the downtrodden, the poor, the forgotten who are convinced to believe this person is actually doing good on their behalf and appears to listen to them....vulnerable people are more receptive to anyone that promises to save them, but they have to adore and only listen to them in order for them to be saved. Isn't it amazing that so many "ordinary" people have been convinced to think they need a rich multi millionaire who is more than likely going to stroke his own cronies rather than even know one iota what it's like to be in their shoes? Wake up, wake up, wake up......we're all being played!
Remember that the NY outbreak happened at the beginning of the pandemic before that was known. In fact, that's probably known now because of that. Of course, that doesn't mean the deaths were good.New York City officials have said at least 80% of coronavirus patients who were put on ventilators there ultimately died
There have also been reports of unusually high death rates among patients on ventilators elsewhere in the US and in China and the UK, the AP said.
I don't think this is a good thing but you might ...
You make an assumption that people only get their news from one source. While that may be the case often, it isn't always true.The Democrats media who only let people hear tiny clips of what Trump says and then spin it out of context would have a problem with keeping their story straight, if all Americans could tune in and hear what Trump actually says.
Unfortunately for your argument, much of the hilarity of what Trump "says" comes from his very own tweets, made by his very own little fingers, no media filter at all.The Democrats media who only let people hear tiny clips of what Trump says and then spin it out of context
