He'll get it all straightened out when he meets with Putin next month.

Russian propaganda shaming is soooooo 1950s. Russia promotion is the new hotness, so long as they keep dumping cash into our elections, because there's a LOT of folks whose integrity is only a ratty couch away from selling their asses.

the end result of hundreds of years of selfishness, with the absolute will to never change sail?

Whatever Trump it, it isn't really about him.  He's just a visual form.  He's everything America pretends doesn't exist.  Except, quite clearly.......

More like Oblivious.

How has he gotten to his age being so dense?

phrawgh: It is what it is.


My boss used to say that. When he had no idea of what to say. Because he did not understand it.

Sigh. Him and the next boss up thought they were good at marketing and sales. They were not. The higher level boss would start BSing like a used car salesman. My Boss would try and calm him down. I was just a developer that they brought along to show the demos. I wanted to just crawl under the table :(
A customer would ask about something that looked wrong. They were correct, it was wrong. But that is how we were told to do it. My boss: "it is what it is".
So glad I am retired now. Especially right now. I wish I could stop having nightmares about being back at work there.

I'm pretty sure Trump would tweet out anything that would look bad for Biden - because he wants Biden to look bad?

While relevant US agencies have adopted a whole-of-government approach focused on countering foreign disinformation and seeks to inform the American public about such efforts, there seems to be no plan in place for addressing false information coming from the President himself."

The current potus is a Russian stooge. Period. End of sentence.

Do you not think that a potus and his team might be more circumspect about "what", exactly, "makes Biden look bad"?

Lies and disinformation doesn't make Biden look bad - it makes Trump look like he's in bed with Putin....again...still - whichever.

Only to the people that see the whole picture. But the ones here on Fark are a very small minority. The vast majority only see the lies. I guess it is a good sign for humanity that so many do not believe the lies. "The truth is out there". Many do seek it out. Too many just want the comfort of the lies. Until "they" get sick.

You should write hate mail to those two bosses about how stupid they were. You can either mail it or not, but it might make you feel better.

He only plays to his base, and his base doesn't listen to anything that says he's wrong. He thinks that's what got him elected last time, when it was really that so many people just didn't vote or voted third party. Hopefully those people saw the error of their ways and will begrudgingly vote for Biden because they've now seen voting actually makes a difference.

Well, not entirely correct when you consider what "deep state" actually means to these people, specifically "anything that prevents us in any way from turning the US into a theocratic facist state, prevents us from robbing it completely blind and selling the charred remains to corporations and finally getting to throw out all the non-white and non-evangelical into the sea or just straight up murdering them all".

I thought about adding them to mailing lists for groups they would hate to get mail from. Even pay to subscribe (anonymously somehow) to magazines. Maybe make a donation in their name. So they would get the thank you mail.
I chickened out :(

Well, obviously.  They're trying to interfere to get him elected.  Might as well have been a neon sign that says, "Tweet this, Mr. President."

I swear if the government's intelligence agencies started every Presidential briefing with "President Trump remember the Kennedy brothers?" there would be no more retweets.
 
2020-08-18 7:58:16 AM  
I had an argument with my Trumpian BIL last week. There was some reference to Russian election meddling. He said something like "only idiots believe that fake news." I almost lost it then and there because I thought he was saying it was "fake news" that Russia is meddling at all (which Trump would have us believe). His real point was that Russia was meddling by planting fake stories on social media and elsewhere -- stories that only idiots would believe. I said, well, you're probably right about that... but that doesn't help your case the way you think it does.

You know, I may make these (the "Heart of the Deal" trilogy) into actual book covers (like the kind we used on our text books in high school) for people to print out and use.  Bring them to life you know.
