Trump chumps fed their Daily Lie – without a burp of insight!


Her master’s voice

❝ Kellyanne Conway has taken “alternative facts” to a new level.

During a Thursday interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, the counselor to the president defended President Trump’s travel ban related to seven majority-Muslim countries. At one point, Conway made a reference to two Iraqi refugees whom she described as the masterminds behind “the Bowling Green massacre.”

“Most people don’t know that because it didn’t get covered,” Conway said.

The Bowling Green massacre didn’t get covered because it didn’t happen. There has never been a terrorist attack in Bowling Green, Ky., carried out by Iraqi refugees or anyone else.

❝ It appeared initially that Conway was referring to two Iraqi citizens living in Bowling Green who were arrested in 2011 and eventually sentenced to federal prison for attempting to send weapons and money to al-Qaeda in Iraq for the purpose of killing U.S. soldiers…But the arrests there were indeed covered, contrary to what she said. A Lexis search of major papers turned up about 90 news stories. That’s not counting TV coverage…

❝ After Conway’s comments, “Bowling Green Massacre” was the No. 1 topic trending on Twitter, and Conway’s interview prompted many to share memories of where they were “when the Bowling Green Massacre didn’t happen.”

Authoritarians like Trump and his proto-fascist peers haven’t the least worry about their True Believers getting upset over the lies decanted from the White House like a daily dose of dragon piss. Imaginary tales from non-existent sources. But, the average American ignoranus isn’t accustomed to fact-checking on their own anymore than their political decisions require knowledge, reflective thought or understanding of any process involving history, economics or the Bill of Rights.

      “The true story of how Teen Vogue got mad, got woke, and began terrifying men like Donald Trump” https://qz.com/866305/the-true-story-of-how-teen-vogue-got-mad-got-woke-and-began-terrifying-men-like-donald-trump/ “When Lauren Duca’s excellent Teen Vogue op-ed on Donald Trump’s psychological manipulation of America went viral last Saturday [ http://www.teenvogue.com/story/donald-trump-is-gaslighting-america ], social media exploded with praise—and with baffled reactions. The piece, one Twitter user noted, had “big words for a magazine about hairstyles and celebrity gossip.” Another user expressed pure astonishment: “Who would have guessed @TeenVogue might be the future of political news. Unreal coverage of the election.” Others were less kind, and a lot less subtle: “Go back to acne treatments,” one man snapped.
      Teen Vogue deserves credit not just for Duca’s op-ed but for the entirety of its political coverage, which has provided sharp, impassioned coverage of everything from gun control to Black Lives Matter in 2016.”
