Trumps Disinformation Campaign Has Gone Too Far, Too Long

Ok, so no matter what side you’re on, one thing you can’t deny. Donnie is a liar. A bad one at that, because he will look you in the eye and lie to your face, knowing that you are completely aware that he is lying.
He really doesn’t care if you know or not.
I mean, come on, if your kid lied like this you would put them in time out forever or seek counseling of some kind for them- and you.
No amount of ‘splainin’ can justify how he lies about everything. Perhaps many of us have become numb to it by now, or just so fatigued we just don’t care anymore.
But this past week, he said “ Our doctors get more money if someone dies from Covid. You know that, right?”
No Donnie, we don’t know that.
Do you know why?
Because that is pure bullshit.
I am a physician. I don’t know of any extra payments for Covid deaths, anywhere, to anyone, under any circumstance.
Once again, the Presi-dunce tries to foist a disinformation campaign upon us to denigrate, and erode trust, from those whose views oppose his own. Doctors, particularly Dr. Fauci, have been outspoken about what we should do. Dr. Birx has taken a less audacious stance and quietly advises states behind the scenes instead of in front of the camera.
( Prediction- Dr. Fauci will be fired, win or lose for Trump on Tuesday. The king doesn’t like when you tell him he has no clothes. Can’t fire him now because of the political/vote impact. After the election, Trump can’t lose anything if he fires him.)
Since their views are against his policy of “let ‘er rip” when it comes to Covid, his only choice is to try to tear doctors down as a group and create doubt about what we say.
Because he can’t combat what we have to say with facts that are to the contrary.
I have Cuban friends that support Trump because to support the Democrats, well as one said to me, “We saw how socialism took hold in Cuba.” In other words, Democrats are socialists.
All of them. Not just Bernie.
That strikes me, for a few reasons. First, at the heart of a socialist transition is a massive disinformation campaign that gets people to doubt -everything. The press, the existing government, the judicial system.
“Drain the swamp”.
Roger Stone was not treated fairly so I will pardon him.
Don’t believe what you see, only believe what I tell you. That seems to be the playbook.
All my life, I wondered how the Germans fell in behind Hitler, and allowed the atrocities that occurred afterward. And now, in my own country, I am witnessing how a program that is aimed to erode trust, to scapegoat others, and cause division, could allow a group of people to support someone who is evil.
I am also reminded of the words of attorney Joe Welch, who responded to Sen. Joe McCarthy at the senate hearings when McCarthy tried to smear a member of Welch’s office staff.
“…I think I never really gauged your cruelty or your recklessness. … Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?”
Donald has no decency. He is now attacking the very people fighting on the front lines of a public health tragedy that he has totally mismanaged, and more troubling, he downplayed from the outset. That is glaringly self evident.
And he thinks you are stupid enough that he can convince you otherwise.
Don’t help him America. Prove him wrong.
