I think that we can all agree by now that the current American president is clinically insane.
To tell falsehoods one after another without even giving it a second thought cannot be normal.
The man has told one lie after another since becoming president, much to the shock and surprise of the American news media. And many of them are having a hard time believing how incredibly thin his skin is. That. my friends, is not a good trait for an American president to have, because if he thinks things are bad now, just wait until he is faced with a real crisis.
Anyway, I say serve them (the press) right. When this man was lying about president Obama for the last seven years, where were they? When he told lie after lie on the campaign trail they acted as if it was normal, and that it was just Donald being Donald. Now that he is president they expect this seventy year old man to all of a sudden change who he is? Not. Going. To. Happen.
Donald's latest whopper (because he just can't help himself) is the one he told a bunch of lawmakers who were visiting him in his newly gold minted digs in the white house. (The man's office decor is gold; he wears neckties that are way too long; and he treats his wife like she is there to serve him. Proof positive that he represents the very worst of us males.) He just can't let this whole popular vote thing go, so he had to let them know, in no uncertain terms, that millions of American voters committed voter fraud, and this is why he lost the popular vote by over three million people. He keeps blatantly lying about this, in spite of the fact that it has been proven over and over again to be false.
The scary thing about trump and his "alternative facts" crew, is that many of their supporters still choose to believe the bull s**t that they peddle on a daily basis. They have all bought in, and to jump off the trump train now would be too much for them to handle.
The white house has now "doubled down" on this voter fraud nonsense, and now that they have the power to feed into the lies created by their alternative universe, they actually have the power to investigate this non-issue. And they have actually declared that they might in fact have an investigation regarding this issue.
“He’s stated his concerns about voter fraud and people voting illegally during the campaign, and he continues to maintain that belief based on studies and evidence that people have presented to him,” Spicer said.
No credible study supports Trump’s claim, and the only study Spicer cited does not support the president on the issue. "
What no one is talking about is the possible nefarious method to the president's madness: Push this false narrative long and hard enough, and justify more voter suppression of the folks who have traditionally been disenfranchised.
Maybe the man is not as insane as I first thought. Maybe he is just an evil person. Or, sadly, maybe he is a little bit of both.
