Ah the irony of minority-elect popular vote loser President Donald John Trump bitching about “fake news.” Now that Trump has been sworn in to less than stellar crowds regardless of how much he lies about record attendance, the Trump administration has taken to creating “alternative facts” to rewrite history and fabricate an alternative reality. Listening to Trump’s dubious claims of ‘media dishonesty’ and ‘fake news’ would be hilarious were it not for the fact that in addition to having Twitter to spread his fake news and lies, he has the most powerful office in the country to expand his delusional agenda.
Trump is profoundly corrupt and ignorant enough to believe his own narcissistic alternate version of reality and is more dishonest than the media he complains about. Less than 24 hours after Trump took office White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer destroyed all his credibility by blatantly lying about the attendance at Trump’s meager inauguration. When Spicer’s failed attempts of ignorantly trying to sell his boss’s delusional reality failed, Trump’s subservient Chief propagandist Kellyanne Conway, who also serves as White House counselor, went on America’s Sunday morning political theater TV and defended Spicer’s decision to provide ‘alternate facts.’
To understand and defeat the pathological liar-in-chief in the White House and the propaganda pushers filling his key cabinet positions, it’s important to learn how they disseminate their lies. Our delusional leader and Kellyanne Conway are responsible for most of the lies, though Trump’s Chief strategist Steve Bannon, a White alt-right Nationalist who was registered to vote in 2 states, and was the former editor of Breitbart – a right-wing conspiracy theory pushing publication that will be increasingly utilized to push Trump’s lies – will also play a major role in pushing the White House’s fallacies. The top 3 strategies used by Trump and his ilk include: Lie, repeat the lie, then try to deflect, distract and divert the lie. When that fails the next strategy includes bullying and attacking those that dispute the easily refutable lies so don’t get confused by their duplicitous bull shit.
A MINORITY-ELECT PRESIDENT WITH NO MANDATE
It can be challenging to keep up with all the Trump administration’s lies so seeking the truth will require keeping close tabs on everything he does. Like many before our minority-elect, popular vote losing President, Trump says one thing and does another. Actions really do speak louder than words so no matter how disingenuously Trump lies, his actions will reveal his true intentions. Deflating Trump’s lies will also require fighting back and holding the fraudulent companies and political pundits accountable for their actions and lies (a good place to start is educating yourself on the Heritage Foundation and the American Legislative Exchange Council which have been advising our dimwitted, thin-skinned president all along, then get to know Bannon and Conway better as they will continue playing crucial roles in Trump’s Ministry of Propaganda).
Trump isn’t just lying to everybody else he’s lying to himself which is a fatal flaw of all delusional self-aggrandizing wannabe dictators with quasi Nazi tendencies. In the days since Trump took office nothing but blatant lies and narcissistic delusions have been coming out of his mouth or the White House he now controls. In addition to making his complete disdain for factual information completely obvious, Trump’s version of Whitehouse.gov has been scrubbed of everything factual and now contains numerous alternative facts, serving as an extension of his delusional dipshittery.
Since being recognized as the liar-in-chief that he is, Trump has tried – albeit unsuccessfully – to deflect attention away from his alternate facts about his dismal inauguration by repeating already debunked alternate facts about millions voting illegally against him. Trump still can’t handle the fact that he lost the popular election by almost 3 million votes – more than 11 million if you include those that didn’t vote for either establishment candidate – and is probably worried, justifiably so, that he will always be the minority-elect President who actually has nothing remotely resembling a mandate whatsoever. As an authoritarian “leader” with quasi Nazi characteristics, that has to hurt Trump badly.
A LIE IS A LIE IS A LIE
Oh well. There are a number of things that can be done to control our wannabe dictator and stand up against the direction he’s trying to push us. Resistance to Trump began the day after he was inaugurated when the Women’s march made history as one of the biggest protest movements in history. More people participated in the Women’s march than showed up for Trumps dismal inauguration ceremony. That speaks volumes about what everyone really thinks about Trump and how illegitimate he truly is and will inevitably pave the way for grass-roots movements that will keep Trump and his crooked cronies in check.
In addition to resistance, protests, and standing up to our pathological liar-in-chief, America’s corporate media – which could potentially save face for their actions and fake news faux pas during the Presidential primaries – needs to do its job and start calling alternative facts what they are: lies. A lie is a lie is a lie and nothing will ever change that and holding Trump and his cabal accountable is long overdue. Unsubscribe from publications and Social Media outlets that push Trump’s lies. Don’t get distracted by what they say but focus on what isn’t said.
Don’t be afraid of the bluster and outbursts. Trump and his corrupt cronies pulling his strings don’t play by the rules so there is no reason we should either. Pay attention to what they do and the crooked cabinet appointments and egregious Executive Orders that have made it painfully obvious that what he says and what he does are constantly contradicting each other. Trump’s duplicitously sinister inaugural speech in which he claimed he was giving control of the government back to the people was belied by his immediate imposition of gag orders on the government and his shrouding everything in secrecy. Using alternative facts to create alternative reality won’t bode well for Trump so be prepared. If you’re tired of having draconian alt-right ideologies shoved down your throat do something about it. The future is only yours if you’re ready to fight for it.
