WHY HASN'T HE BEEN LOCKED UP YET???

Sometimes he doesn't lie.

Sometimes he brazenly confesses crimes instead.

It really is amazing. He lies when he doesn't need to and tells the truth when he really shouldn't.

Because it's hard to pound a gavel when you're bent over in hysterical laughter after every word he speaks?

And I don't mean The Bat Cave.

Ignoring him does not mean he, or his insane followers, will go away. In fact, we need to keep the white hot light of publicity on him to remind everyone what a racist, wannabe dictator anti-American POS he really is.

People that complain about "too many Trump stories" are just enabling him and and his followers.
 
2021-07-18 1:25:35 PM  
Because there are millions of Americans that believe him. You have to relay the truth. You have to. Granted 99% of the followers may not listen but slowly they begin to see reality. You can't give that up or we are well and truly screwed.
 
2021-07-18 1:29:21 PM  
It would be more news worthy when he actually tells the truth.
 
2021-07-18 1:31:21 PM  
There is no fact checking at this point. He has openly stated that he lies when it suits him.

Folks, please. Lying is the bread and butter of all narcissists. It is their currency for manipulation, and comes as easily as breathing for most folks... sad but true, and that's the name of that tune. I truly fear for our republic.

We need to counter every lie from this former POTuS Fascist POS and keep up the pressure on the legal front so that eventually he is found guilty of Tax evasion, obstruction of election laws, Treason supporting insurrection, rape, perjury and any one of the host of other crimes he has committed in the past 40 years!  He didn't self-pardon so we have that going and I believe eventually he will be found guilty of several crimes!  He may worm his way out of jail time, but guilty verdicts by a jury of your peers are not "Fake News" nor "Witch Hunts" when you lie and cheat in everything you do!  (he even has to cheat at golf!)

Actual copy and pasta from Freeperville Tumplandia. Yes, this is real:

"Anybody who is not 100% behind Donald Trump, who differs not one single bit with him on any policy or point at all, is a scumbag. There must be 100% total loyalty to the leader and no other leader in our time. To hell with the Constitution, and two terms of four years each. We should annoint him King for life, and do away with all opposition. We need to look at a post-democratic world and one of total authoritarianism committed to Conservative cause. . We must follow this one single man, and his family which we must also install after him, unquestioningly, even if he is indicted, even if it means giving our own lives. And to hell with anyone calling this a cult for us thinking this way. "

"Mike Lindell Claims 'Real Totals' From 2020 Election Are Trump 80M, Biden Below 68M
That sounds about right."

"The DemonicRat cheating was systematic, multifaceted and in every county in every state. "

"Imagine President Trump running in 2024 and either Biden or Harris opposing him. With the fraud of 2020 being well-understood by everyone. I would expect 40M for Biden and 100M for Trump. At least. "

"I think this is a good idea but I think the dishonesty is so great that it will not work. We'd have to threaten and do mayhem to and show we would shoot them if they lied, to get any level of compliance. I, personally, see a Dem and immediately think "liar" and thief. "

"what is shocking is that
1. the DNC and ChInA planned it for YEARS with the NWO
and
2. that the GOP was complicit, paid off with counterfeit
money, trafficked children, drugs, and ELECTION FRAUD
and
3. the whole ELECTION STEAL was run from Malta and Roberts
and
4. no one involved, or those in the sedition, or
its coverup, has met public Justice."

"I have no proof, but my gut tells me that way too many republicans are actually democrats that ran as republicans so they could get elected. "

"Exactly. It is a coup. We are being ruled by a junta. "

"Wow! Both parties, hundreds of people involved. All carrying secrets about their part and others in the Nov 2020 coup. "

"The death of Harrison Deal wasn't just a signal to Gov. Kemp... "

"Don't forget the ringleader of this coup, Chief Justice John Roberts and his six associate justices that ensured the operation would be complete in their favor.
Treason, trial and execution is the only proper ending for them."

Thing is, the mystery 74k+ votes were all for Trump.

But seriously, there aren't any votes that appeared mysteriously. They're misrepresenting basic facts.

While it's true that his media presence gives him power and his power gives him media presence, and destroying either would end the cycle... it's damn difficult to destroy one while the other is in place.  The thing repairs itself.

And as long as Trump rules the MAGA cult, and the GOP wants those votes and is afraid to cross Trump because of that (and, presumably, because of fear of Putin's obvious kompromat on them)... Trump is a massive political and cultural influence, which makes the shiat spewing out of him newsworthy to some degree.

I've been infromed that I call Trump a liar because of projection. I didn't seem to care when Bill Clinton lied under oath, something Trump has never and would never do, so all of my belly aching about Trump is partisan butthurt. Political rhetoric is inherently dishonest, only Demonrats do it for political advantage. It's true.

Fiatlux: lied under oath, something Trump has never and would never do


You know... I think Trump is a slippery bastard and might instinctively avoid blatant lies under oath where there is an immediate threat of jail for contempt.  More likely, I think he'd move Heaven and Earth to avoid being in the witness box knowing full well that the truth would damn him and there's a limit to how much verbal judo you can use when you're a farking moron with the vocabulary and temperament of a primary schooler having a tantrum.

I feel the same way, every time I bring it up some idiot comments I'm "burying my head in the sand" or "if you ignore him it will just happen again."

Yeah, no. I'm just not clicking another trump link and feeding the media that gives him a soapbox

Same for me. With a side of "closed-minded" and "brainwashed".
 
2021-07-18 2:25:18 PM  
I don't even read about Trump any more beyond the headlines. It's always there and always the same. He's something like the noise coming from a nearby day care playground that while once entertaining and sometimes concerning at some point you just tune out. There's always inappropriate laughter, yelling, crying, unsubstantiated boasting, intermittent argument of "it's not fair!," someone always needs a diaper change or just refuses to wear their big boy pants...
 
2021-07-18 2:26:05 PM

He's a pathological liar

Sort of like how the liars behind the Fraudit in Arizona claimed there are 74243 "unexplained" ballots, when in reality they cannot not have known that that is the exact number of in-person early votes cast before the date with the "discrepancy."

But of course it doesn't matter, because within minutes every fascist lying piece of shiat was screaming about it and they'll never stop.

He had 70+ million votes in 2020, but if only Fark would stop paying attention to him, he would magically go away somehow.

While most here don't want to be reminded of his utterly horrifying and world wide damaging term, there are some who want people to forget him so his bullshiat can spread more.

One aspect of willful ignorance is to believe what you are told blindly. No fact checking, no demand for evidence, nothing. And when they get called out on it, they are at least smart enough to use logical fallacies to defend their position. "No, you first!" or "your evidence to the contrary is fake".

They don't get how "If I don't like the poll results, I just call it fake" is admitting his tactic. Its not a far cry from "if I don't like the election results, I just call it fraud". This is not new for him. Anyone who has actually followed his history knows this is how he has operated for over 40 years. And unless you demand evidence be produced before siding with him, you do nothing but empower his ego.

Most of them cherry-pick a single detail, but ignore the reality. It's sad. The "Covfefederacy" is what they are. Traitorous ignorant fools who blindly follow a man who has a history of lying, cheating, and dodging by selling out to foreign entities. Keep following you too can speak Russian by 2030!

Trump was made because of the news media

Their incessant focus upon him was what propelled him to the WH

CNN breaking news reports with an empty Trump podium comes to mind

Why? Because he's a ratings maker. He brings home the bacon. That's the way its been since 2015 and that is the way it'll be as long as we give him that power to command attention.
