“Our sources say Demi was transported by ambulance from a home in the Hollywood Hills just before noon Tuesday, and is currently being treated. We do not know her condition.”
ADDED: I think this one is even better. (Pretty good looks at her bare breasts.)
I had to read this a second time to see if he was making a joke, but he apparently was not. He claims Russia will be helping the Democrats because he is so tough on Russia.
You have to give him credit. He is the master of what Hitler called The Big Lie – a distortion of the truth which is so gross that it requires brass balls to make it public – and is effective because people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one, so the theory goes, especially it is repeated frequently.
This does raise the question that always pops into my mind with Trump – can he be so delusional that he actually believes he has been hard on Russia, and can just ignore the obvious pro-Trump posts from the Russian bots that appear every day on social media, or is he just a pathological liar who is willing to cynically manipulate his gullible base? I still can’t figure that one out. Either way is terrifying.
SIDEBAR: While Hitler did coin the phrase “grosse Luege” in Mein Kampf in 1925, Hitler and Goebbels did not advocate the use of the big lie, contrary to popular belief. They condemned it! Hitler used the term in his book to accuse “the Jews” of this technique; Goebbels accused the British of it on many occasions during WW2.
Outrageous claims, utter bullshit and factual errors? That’s not the Sean Spicer I know!
“It’s scientifically impossible to fail if Kurt Russell believes in you.”
Be afraid. Be very afraid. If Trump’s trade wars heat up inflation, real wages could plummet.
Here is an article from Harvard Business Review which examines the long-term trends in the real wage decline, with explanations and nuances. See the comments section for additional insights.
This Russian bot post is easily dismissed, and your initial instinct is to think that nobody could possible buy the claims therein – until you realize that it was re-tweeted by the wife of a Supreme Court justice! It demonstrates how eager people are to see confirmation of their beliefs.
(I believe that this is an aspect of human nature, and not a form of behavior specifically limited to the right wing. In my observations, the left is just as gullible. Case in point: the “we don’t tip terrorist” hoax.)
Turns out Rush Limbaugh is immortal!
As a reflection of the age in which we live, it is no longer possible to tell the difference between real stories and the mockery of The Onion.
This one is real.
They basically would only be allowed to ask him how his golf game is going.
Trump will not answer any questions about obstruction of justice. Needless to say, that’s why they want to talk to him in the first place. There is (to my knowledge) no evidence that candidate Trump colluded directly with Russian agents, but there was the letter he dictated (and initially denied dictating through Sarah Sanders), his pressure on Sessions not to recuse himself, as well as the Comey firing and his stated reasons for doing so.
