News & Politics
Listening to the phone call, several things stood out. First of all-- Trump, like any practiced con-man, sounds soooo sincere, and so totally convincing! (But its all lies).
Secondly, I noticed that all of his numerous claims were "backed up" by figures-- numbers of voters, percentages, etc.
Over the years I've noticed that successful con-artists do that whenever possible. Why? Because using (what purports to be) actual statistics makes it sound more authentic (even if something is a total lie!)
“We had a number of people who went to vote and were turned away because they said a ballot had already been cast in their name, and that’s very sad.”
Oh, well that’s because they already voted, dumbass. You told them to try and vote twice to test the system, and it worked perfectly.
But many of Trump's groupies aren't exactly..."the sharpest knife in the drawer" (to coin a phrase
(Heck, so can see numerous examples of this on social media sites...)
The third thing that stood out-- how much information Trump presented. (All of it false of course).
Every con-artist knows that merely saying something like:
There was a lot of cheating going on
That might not be all that convincing. So-- Trump gave numerous "facts" to back up his claims. "Facts" and "figures" In some cases more than one "anecdote" to back up his claims. (All totally false). All of which would seem to bolster the credibility of what he said.
()If anyone wants to be a successful grifter like Trump, listen to this phone conversation. You will learn a lot).
This is amazing, just a while ago I looked under the cushion on the sofa and guess what I found?
The US is saved, give me an Amen.
I got through half of the tape and it’s just too nauseating to continue. What the hell is it with Trump and the “like nobody’s ever seen” phrase that he adds to every lie? Is it supposed to make it sound like less of a lie? It has the total opposite effect. Nobody with a healthy brain would ever do that.
Some recounts found votes for Biden. Wouldn't it be a hoot if they did find any new ballots and they were all for Biden?
TRUMP - "They don't count. The deadline has passed."
OFFICIAL - "We found 20 for you Mr. Trump but the deadline has passed."
TRUMP - "Screw the deadline, count them."
Why couldn't Trump have done this earlier, before so many ballots for the 2 Senate runoff seats were mailed?
Do you really think Trump gives a shit about the runoff. He only cares about HIS "stolen reelection".
