    Default "Everybody knows it" - translated

    Just a quick primer whenever you hear a former reality TV show host say "everybody knows it," i.e. "The election was stolen. Everybody knows it."

    This can mean 1 of 2 things:

    1) No one knows it.
    2) The only people who "know" it are people you could sell a bridge to if you could relate it to "MAGA" in some way

    Under no circumstances does it mean everyone actually knows it, or that it's remotely related to anything truthful or factual.

    I hope this quick summary has been helpful.

    Well said. "Everyone thinks" or "everyone knows" is just LoserSpeak used to try to convince others that the speaker is righteous and consensus is behind him/her. They're not righteous and the consensus is not.

    Trump is a liar. Hardly worth mentioning anymore.

    It's called alleged certainty fallacy.

    It's called: Trump is a lying sack of shit. That's what it's called.
    And 'Everybody Knows': Trump should be at Guantanamo being waterboarded. No, not for information ... just for fun.

    Best to assume Trump is lying his flabby ass off whenever his lips are moving, or fingers are typing.
