The Bullshitter-in-Chief – Vox

This is an excerpt from a very important article, and it is where any trump supporter needs to get their minds if they wanna understand how to get off the back of the tiger they climbed onto in their orgy of Hillary hatred.

Yes, trump supporter, your hate-driven vote is what has opened the gates of hell and unleashed this animal onto us.  You are like Saruman who thought he could ‘do a deal’ with Mordor and then find a way to dump Sauron off to the side and keep the ring of power for himself.

You need to dive into this article…see for yourself what you have done.

Harry Frankfurt’s theory of bullshit

“As Frankfurt put it in his groundbreaking essay “On Bullshit,” “one of the most salient features of our culture is that there is so much bullshit.”

“Frankfurt attempts to give the term definition that distinguishes the bullshitter from the liar, with the most salient distinction being that the liar is genuinely trying to trick you.

“The bullshitter,” by contrast, “may not deceive us, or even intend to do so, either about the facts or about what he takes the facts to be.

”The liar wants to be seen as the one telling the truth. The bullshitter just doesn’t care. That’s Trump. During the course of the 2016 campaign, he said over and over again that America is “the highest-taxed nation in the world,” which isn’t even remotely close to being true.

“But he kept saying it, despite having been called out repeatedly, and then he said it again in a recent interview with the Economist.

“Trump says, over and over again, that he won one of the greatest Electoral College landslides in history.

It’s not true, it’s obviously not true to anyone who bothers to look it up or remembers any past presidential elections, and it’s not even remotely clear why it’s important. But Trump keeps on saying it…”
