Brainwashing the Brainless: This poll number proves how powerful Trump's misinformation machine really is

Mod: Apparently brainwashing the brainless is something that can be done.

This poll number proves how powerful Trump's misinformation machine really is (CNN Politics link): In a July 25 phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Trump asked his counterpart to look into debunked allegations of corruption by Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

This is a fact. The Truth. How do we know? Because the White House released a rough transcript of the conversation last week in which Trump said this:

"There's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it... It sounds horrible to me."

See, it's right there. In the transcript the White House released itself. All of which makes this next fact absolutely mystifying and terrifying: In a new national Monmouth University poll just four in 10 self-identified Republicans believe that Trump mentioned Biden in his call with Zelensky.

Are. You. Kidding. Me.

It is right there in the transcript that the WHITE HOUSE released of the call!

Remember that we aren't talking here about whether Trump pressured Zelensky to look into the Bidens. He did, but there is a little bit of wiggle room there in that Trump didn't say "Unless you do this, I will withhold military aid from you." This poll question deals only with whether Trump actually mentioned Biden's name in the call. Which he 100% did!

How can so many Republicans say he didn't? Because Trump has conditioned them to not believe things that are, quite literally, right in front of their faces.

"Stick with us," Trump told a group of veterans last July. "Don't believe the crap you see from these people, the fake news. ... What you're seeing and what you're reading is not what's happening."

When you consider that the American President actually told people that "what you're seeing and what you're reading is not what's happening," this poll finding doesn't seem so unbelievable. The primary work of Trump's candidacy -- and his presidency -- has been to erode the idea that objective truth exists. This is an administration that said the words "alternative facts" with a straight face. And a President who has misled or lied more than 12,000 times in his tenure in the White House.

  1. Russia,Russia,Russia, now it is the Ukrainians. The Democrats are giving American youth their education in geography if nothing else.
    The Dems will loose the House and the 2020 election because of their geography lessons vs real not fake issues important to voters.
    FOUR MORE YEARS.

  2. Former Fed prosecutor Mimi Rocah lays it out real purdy:

    -Mob boss wants something. Asks “nicely” so he can claim it wasn’t a demand.

    -Mob lawyer tries to make demand happen & hide behind attorney-client privilege.

    -Underboss & Capos carry out different parts of the plan.

    -They get caught & all claim not to know the whole.

    The end

  4. House Republicans voice concerns about White House's impeachment messaging

    House Republicans are expressing frustration with how the White House is handling the Democratic charge on impeachment.

    They say the administration has suffered from an ineffective, inconsistent message with some going as far as questioning whether the White House has a plan at all for taking on the Democrats.

    “Who knows what playbook they are on,” one GOP lawmaker told The Hill. “[Trump’s] pulling it out of his ass as he goes along.”

  5. Kurt Volker: Diplomat never 'fully on the Trump train' set to appear as first witness in Ukraine probe

    Former US Special Envoy for Ukraine Kurt Volker appears Thursday before three congressional committees -- the first official to testify on explosive whistleblower charges that President Donald Trump tried to pressure Ukraine to investigate his Democratic rival Joe Biden, an effort the White House then worked to cover up.

    A longtime Republican foreign policy expert who was seen in the White House as not fully "on the Trump train," Volker is now at the center of the impeachment inquiry examining allegations Trump deployed the machinery of state in a vendetta to target political rivals.
    Volker's testimony, analysts say, could be damaging to the President and his allies.

    Volker is seen as "a well-respected straight shooter who is likely to testify in ways that will damage other Trump allies," Ian Bremmer, president of the Eurasia Group, wrote in an emailed analysis. "It's possible others, including key administration members like Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Attorney General William Barr would also be forced out."

    Volker is also one of the State Department witnesses whose depositions to Congress Secretary of State Michael Pompeo tried to block, setting off a tussle with lawmakers who say they will interpret any effort to prevent the officials' appearances as obstruction.

  9. DUMP, does not have misinformation. He is in an alter-reality. Later on, we are going to find out that he either had: SYPHILIS, DEMENTIA, GONORERA, OR ALZIMERAS. a BI-POLAR PERSONALITY, OR A NUMBER OF DISORDERS. He needs to be dissected.

  12. Well, Mod, I thought you might just be exaggerating a bit when you wrote about the moat next to the wall, and the crocodiles, but just read it in the LA Times, along with snakes. I've said since Trump was talking about building a wall, 13th century defense, that the next thing he'd want to do was build a moat around the White House. Guess I was partially right.

  13. If history serves me correct, didn't another MOB BOSS go back to Florida to relax and that was where it all ended? That MOB BOSS was Al Capone and we all know what he died of of neurosyphilis and became increasingly debilitated before being released he died of cardiac arrest after suffering a stroke. I do believe (djt) is showing these same signs of SYPHILIS already?

  15. Of course there was a worry about how the impeachment process was going to play out and how many crazy politicians were going to be caught in the net. Now we all know (djt) & Pence will be going as well, cut off the head of a MOB and it will die slowly and those members will be easy pickings for trial and Federal Prison sentences. Of course Americans are happy about this but them Communist-Republican-Nazi members are upset. They of course could plead guilty and join their leaders in prison too? https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Trump-involved-Pence-in-efforts-to-pressure-14487239.php
