And, seriously, how is anyone still talking about this?

What is the world we live in? Post-hypocrisy?
But wait – there’s more. Post-truth. Post-democracy. Post-conscience.
There’s your Rethuglican platform, dear reader. Hypocrisy is fine when they do it. And for their purposes, truth, democracy, and conscience are all obsolete.
Two weeks from today the counting begins. The Rethuglicans are doing everything they can to make sure it’s chaotic and inconclusive. They figure that will allow them to claim whatever result they feel like claiming. They are also trying to ram in a fifth toady on the Supreme Court to make it stick.
In two months, this could be us. US.
You wonder how deep Rethuglican shamelessness can go.
Keep wondering. I assure you, we are not yet even close to hitting bottom. They are not likely to DE-escalate between now and Nov 3, are they?
They don’t care. There is no shame. It’s impossible. They are getting what they want, and they simply don’t give a f* who it hurts. If you look at their attitude about wearing masks during the pandemic, I saw a meme that sums it up:
In hindsight, it may have been a mistake to tell Americans that wearing masks was for the protection of OTHER people
And now, this.
For many reasons, not least these four posted by a friend of mine on Pluspora.com yesterday, I sadly predict that this latest “Oh, boy, we’ve got him NOW!” moment will pass just like all the others did.
- His followers would have to accept that they were conned. They won’t do it.
- He will yell “fake news” and his followers will chant along because they’ve been well trained.
- His followers dig his hateful policies and don’t care that he’s actually a fraud and a loser as long as he hates the same people they hate.
- His followers think tax avoidance is what rich people do, so Trump’s tax returns are aspirational for them. (They won’t recognize the business failures part.)
