This is one of those mornings, where if your head doesn’t explode from reading Donald Trump’s latest fantasy spin on what actually took place during the impeachment inquiry and senate trial, probably you’ll be good to go for the rest of the year. In defiance of all logic and mountains of documentation proving otherwise, here is what Trump said to his disciples in New Hampshire last night about impeachment votes.

This is Trumpian math. You simply total up the votes you got in your favor, and eliminate the votes which were against you — those votes against you equal “nothing.” This is terrific. Sports fans, your team need never lose again. Just follow this formula. If your team gets six points and the other team gets twenty, no problem, the score is six to nothing and you win — always. Ain’t it grand? Life is just one landslide victory after another with this equation.

It went on all night like this. If you want to follow Daniel Dale’s live fact checking thread, it’s all here. I especially liked this sequence.

I’ve always thought that the Scalise story, which Trump has in fact told a lot, is one that he should bury, because if anything he has ever said shows how jaded and transactional a life he leads, it’s variations on this theme that “many wives” meaning “my wife” wouldn’t care if I got shot — and I know it. That really is something best left unsaid.

I am amazed he doesn’t drag Scalise to his rallies, to show his “battle scar.”😣

Steve, pull your shirt up for the nice people! They wanna see your scar! The do-nothing democrat(s) gave it to him. Blam! There was SO much blood! The blood was leaking everywhere!

“many wives” = “my wives”
Small point – I’m focusing on trivia because I’ll pop otherwise.

From what Stormy said, there was a “small” point involved.

Trump’s point is the the GOP stuck by him in the house and he got a few Democrats as well. But as usual, he does not express himself very well. And if he were consistent, he would have said that his acquittal vote was 52-1. We should challenge his main point, not get sidetracked by his sloppy expressions. His main point is here, “Other than Romney, we got 52 to nothing. 52 to nothing. That’s something.” The “That’s something” is his main point. A party line vote by the GOP who had already promised to acquit him even before the… Read more »

This is also part of Trumpelthinskin’s advance propaganda. He’s so drunk with power and so confident because he’s been told that he’s already won the November 3, 2020 vote before a single US vote has been cast. Putin is following the same playbook he perfected in Russia to rig the US vote with lots of assistance from the GOP-Nazis. This from Putin’s 2016 Russian Hacking Group known as “Cozy Bear”. The 2018 vote was also rigged by Cozy Bear, but the GOP-owned E-voting machines software could not handle the mass volume of votes that needed to be changed in real… Read more »
