More on the “Trump will be reinstated as president in August” stupidity…

Cooke said “an array of different sources” confirmed a report earlier this week by New York Times journalist Maggie Haberman, who said on Twitter that Trump has been sharing the popular new QAnon talking point. 

But Cooke went even further, saying Trump not only believes he’ll be put back into the Oval Office but also that he will be gifted with a Republican majority in the Senate, believing that two Democrats will be booted from Congress and replaced by the GOP candidates they defeated. 

He cautioned conservatives against downplaying or dismissing the report. 

“This is not merely an eccentric interpretation of the facts or an interesting foible, nor is it an irrelevant example of anguished post-presidency chatter,” he wrote. “It is a rejection of reality, a rejection of law, and, ultimately, a rejection of the entire system of American government.” 

Trump, he wrote, is “so unmoored from the real world that it is hard to know where to begin in attempting to explain him.”

But he's going to get the GOP nomination in 2024, and if the economy isn't good at that time, he's probably going to be elected president again. 

I mean, yes he's a sundowning oaf becoming more detacted from reality by the day, and he drove the country in a ditch the last time he was president, but some completely arbitrary number the media decides is important isn't quite high enough, so we have no choice but to make him president again. Thems the rules.

Huh, you don’t say!

Summary: Study reveals conservatives are less able to distinguish political truths from falsehoods, and the glut of right-wing media organizations producing politically incorrect content is likely to blame.

Source: Ohio State University

Conservatives are less able to distinguish political truths from falsehoods than liberals, mainly because of a glut of right-leaning misinformation, a new national study conducted over six months shows.

Researchers found that liberals and conservatives in the United States both tended to believe claims that promoted their political views, but that this more often led conservatives to accept falsehoods while rejecting truths.

One of the main drivers of the findings appeared to be the American media and information environment.

“Both liberals and conservatives tend to make errors that are influenced by what is good for their side,” said Kelly Garrett, co-author of the study and professor of communication at The Ohio State University.

“But the deck is stacked against conservatives because there is so much more misinformation that supports conservative positions. As a result, conservatives are more often led astray.”

Garrett conducted the study with Robert Bond, associate professor of communication at Ohio State.

Their results were published today in the journal Science Advances.

The study involved 1,204 American adults who participated online between January and June 2019.

Every two weeks, the researchers identified viral political news stories, 10 true and 10 false, that received high social media engagement.

The researchers then asked participants to assess a series of 20 statements that were based on these stories. Participants labeled each one as true or false and indicated how confident they were in their label.

In the end, participants had evaluated as many as 240 statements on a broad range of topics and representing many different viewpoints.

They might have gotten better press coverage iIf every single sentence that came out of their mouths wasn’t a bold faced lie.

Not just that, but she took like two months off last year. Stopped holding press briefings for a long stretch. Pathetic and unprofessional in every aspect of performance.

Maybe if McEnany hadn't been such a lying sack of misinformation **** people would have spoken better of her. She made her own bed, **** her.

Yeah. Chris Wallace got on a high horse tonight and derided Jake Tapper for saying that he was against giving a voice to election deniers. Wallace thinks that news gatherers shouldn't pick sides.

So, there's one good man running a state out there.

 

 

That "good man" had a dinner all masks off in the fanciest of restaurants while employing the strictest of restrictions on his constituents.

 

 

Asking everyone else to do something you won't/or don't do during the middle of a once in a generation crisis.......failed leadership and at a crucial moment during the crisis. And just for ***** and giggles its at a birthday party for a lobbyist.

It's stupid as god**** dog**** that liberals still can't figure it out when they're being baited into spreading the exact conspiracy theory that Trump wants them to spread. Literally all they need is for Maggie Haberman to tell them that her sources say Trump believes that he's going to be reinstated, and they'll all take it at face value like they're not cheapening the accusation that he's attempting a coup to base it on something so frivolous that Trump can just deny that he said it.
