14,000,000 and Going Up Conservatives love pretend

"To fuel our economic boom, we are *bowl-ding* -- (LONG ADDERALL SNIFF) -- and boldly using American energy independence." 
After indulging in one of his tells, misspeaking a word or phrase followed by a long sniff and then slowly saying the word, Trump slurred out a claim about jobs,
“I’m very proud of my daughter Ivanka. She has now created 14 million jobs and they are being trained by these great companies, the greatest companies in the world because the government cannot train them.”
The quip is to say Ivanka created 14 million jobs... in China. But Trump's entire Presidency is preposterous, unbelievable, untethered to reality.

One of the most infuriating things of the mendacious Trump Maladministration is conservatives applauding Trump's blatant lies. Of course, since Trump's non-stop barrage of absurd falsehoods, delusional exaggerations and utter bullshit angers the libs it therefore delights his MAGAt Horde.

If the Media fact-checks Trump's absurd claims his followers will simply declare it "Fake News" and then go about yelling at black people about the Greatness of Maga.

To me, Trump's vile and false claims about his Heroism on 9/11 and venal ignorance about Police work are the most insulting and outrageous lies but, there is a Trump Lie for every topic and occasion.

Trump claims this is the greatest... Trump declares that is the best ever... it's ludicrous, but effective.  Trump has succeeded in pulling the classic scam which conservatives have willingly fallen for, for 50 years.

The scam is simple; A Republican makes a grandiose claim, takes credit for something, or says he's going to do X,Y, or Z then after the news cycle has revolved a few times said Republican acts as if his claim or X, Y, Z happened. The Media in their job of legitimizing Republican Mendacity go along with it and now the mere claim is now the truth.

Trump being the consummate grifter and liar knows a classic scam when he sees one. And Republicans have been running this one on conservatives for decades. But, while at first it took crafted propaganda and the ceaseless repetition of lies via Talk Radio, email listservs and Faux News, conservatives now engage in a form of self-hypnosis to actively delude themselves via social media. Right-wingers no longer need the scam artists as they simply have learned to scam themselves.

Most of Trump's claims were for personal aggrandizement but, now facing Impeachment Trump has weaponized his claims to literally call himself "The Chosen One" and the Greatest President who Ever Was, who;
  • Rebuilt the Entire Military.
  • Respected by Foreign Leaders 
  • Created the Greatest Economy Ever
  • Farmers cried for the love of Trump
  • Trade Wars are good, and easy to win
  • is the Toughest on Russia and North Korea
  • Released a Perfect Call Transcript
  • Lowest Black Unemployment Ever
  • And lie after lie after lie
The Maga Horde repeat these lies as gospel. There's no reaching a people who decide to angrily repeat lies as truth. We live in a Totally Subjective America, wherein whatever Donald Trump and Maga Need to be True, Is True. 

In reality, the military under Trump has suffered an increase of negligent training accidents, increased risk overseas from Trump bungling, and the criminal malfeasance of the Republican Party in the Niger Special Forces Ambush has never been properly investigated.

Yet crying Billionaire Leon Cooperman debased himself on CNBC when he bravely held back tears and fears of an Elizabeth Warren Presidency. Cooperman went on to repeat many of the Trump falsehoods and compared Trump to Reagan. Yet, it makes sense for Cooperman to hew himself unto Trump, as it benefits him immensely and after all he's just looking out for his own class, "I’m not afraid to stand up to the wealthy and well-connected.”

But, facts and reality no longer matter to conservatives. They love the Pretend America which Trump is giving them.

W. Hackwhacker,

Cooperman decided he's had enough of his inferiors questioning his GOD ABOVE ORDAINED WEALTH!!! "“As far as the accusations of insider trading, I won the case. She’s disgraceful. She doesn’t know who the fuck she’s tweeting." Of course, Cooperman wasn't cleared of Insider Trading he settled. Cooperman paid $5,000,000 and got that coveted Get of Jail Free card afforded to rich people of not having to admit fault.
