- Global warming is a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese to serve their economic interests.
- President Barack Obama was not born in the United States.
We’ve heard Donald Trump repeat these ideas for nearly a decade. Trump’s world-view allows these beliefs to hold true (to him). Even with contravening evidence that the Chinese didn’t invent the idea of global warming or that President Obama was born in Hawaii, which is in the United States, Trump still believes in these two ideas. He holds on to these ideas because his brain is planned to resist new ideas. He infuriates many around him with his lies and proclivity for conspiracy theories to “back up” his ideas. Although many people deal with the world in a similar way, no Oval Office Occupant comes close to living in the world of denial, misrepresentation of facts, and fantasies that he is the only one that can solve “our” problems.
Some would say he is the archetype science denier. I am not just speaking about climate change, but nearly all the policy decisions that should rely on logic, science research, and wisdom. These are missing from Trump’s brain.
So, this question should not surprise you: Why would he reject the facts that have been agreed up by scientist and citizens in all but two counties (3 now that the US pulled out of Paris Agreement). He is boxed in to the racist and isolationist concept of “America First,” as are all of his cabinet appointees. Sometimes when I hear them speak, the I am amazed at how they are able to join the selfish and unrealistic policy that under scores the “America First” notion. Yesterday, Niki Halley was a master explaining why global climate change was not an American issue, and that getting out of the Paris Accord was to protect the American people. America didn’t get a good deal.
This is such a f****** lie.
For nearly a decade Trump promoted the “birther” falsehood, even with photos and documents proving Obama is a citizen of the US. Obama actually showed a video of his birth at a Washington Correspondents Dinner.
Trump flew around the US in his airplane, landing in places like New Hampshire, announcing once again that he knows that President Obama is an illegal immigrant and was not born in this country and he shouldn’t be the President. His “birther” notion was racist, and appealed to a sizable part of the electorate, and Trump, for more than five years, “fanned this racist conspiracy theory.” Even when he was forced to say that Obama was born in America, he turned and blamed the idea on Hillary Clinton—which is not true. But it’s another clear example of how this guy operates by twisting and turning, and as he walks away with a smirk on his face, he’s giving you the finger.
Trump is like a wounded tiger. He knows he lost the election to Hillary Clinton. More people voted for her than him and he is pissed.
Indeed, he’s a loser. He lost by more than 3 million votes. He doesn’t like to be a loser. Remember, in Trump’s world, we are either winners or losers, good or bad, virtuous or evil. So, now he’s in the loser category. In fact, not as many people showed up at his inauguration as for Obama’s first one, a fact he fought, even to today by creating a crack committee to investigate election fraud.
Trump’s insisted that 3 million illegal immigrants votes fraudulently in the election, and that’s why lost the popular vote. Thus the need for the crack committee.
