The Rare Norm 3 weeks ago Share Tweet Pin Share This isn’t about Trump being misled by the the television, it’s the opposite. Trump and his friends in the media are deliberately conspiring to plant false narratives to keep his base contained in the alternate fact reality. Guliani gave the Trump administration’s game away on Fox & Friends – “All that matters is that Mueller is undermined” As long as Trump controls enough of the conservative base, he controls the Republican Party, and will remain above the law. The intelligence agencies have clearly said the successful DNC hack (edit: as well as the attempted hack of Hillary) was the work of the Russian government. Trump has desperately muddied the waters on that fact, including standing next to Vladimir Putin saying “it could have been anyone”, because we now know his campaign was conspiring with the Russians to release those hacked emails through Wikileaks to influence the US election outcome (which they did on the same day his pussy tape was released). Blaming China is just the latest attempt to deceive his base and keep them locked inside the alternate reality bubble. The only way to destroy Trump and his corrupt administration is to separate him from his voter base. They have to be convinced that he has betrayed them and can no longer be trusted. Only then can they be peeled away. Only then will the rest of the Republican Party turn on him.
