    Default Gaslighting

    Donald John Trump is quite a showman, he loudly claims he going to do something and then doesn't do it. But his fans hear the claim not realizing it wasn't going to happen anyway. The biggest con was Mexico paying for the wall, even now he claims they are paying in other ways. Anyone see that 'great great heathcare'? Or cheap meds? Are his followers naive, does it really matter. If he is caught making things up he simply blames Hillary or Obama. Yes, that still works. It is rumored Trump's loyal sycophant in gaslighting Brad Parscale* even calls him kemosabe. Truth be damned if the pay is right. Now that election season is upon us he is promising and doing all sort of unreal things. No, he doesn't just toss paper towels or hurt needy children, like some narcissistic child he is continuing to make the universe great again. It is fascinating to watch, will it work a second time? Hard to say. The rich and the polluters are betting it does, oh, and supporting that it does too.

    Lots of info about our gaslighter in chief for the interested reader below, check out a piece or two.

    "Over Trumpís 29 months as president, the number of vehicle and parts manufacturing jobs has gone up by 42,100, or 4.4 percent, according to the most recent figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Over the previous 29 months, the job growth was 73,500, or 8.3 percent. So far, the trend of job growth in the industry has continued under Trump, at a slightly slower pace."

    Hope all are well this day after the 4th? Shore areas are crowded, all that Spring rain and the crazy weather must have gotten to people.

    I was listening to the news interviews this morning as Trump heads to a personal golf course on the working American's tab and thought how crazy it would be if a democrat did that. But the even odder thing about the questions are the answers which brings me back to this thread. He makes shat up out of nothing, lies, exaggerates, lies some more, blames others, compliments himself, makes senseless claims, etc etc etc, it is like a visit to an insane asylum in which an insane person is the source of all reality. Really weird except some listen and actually believe, they hear in his BS truths that elude commonsense.

    And odd example below, gaslighting so obvious but to Trump's believers real.

    "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.Ē Joseph Goebbels
