I'm not talking about Fox News or the makers of the ad or anybody else whose job it is to just blatantly lie. I'm talking more about the rank-and-file who parrot that shit.
I know we're talking about some extraordinarily dumb people here, but even among people who are so dumb they think Trump is smart, a lot of them have to know that's bullshit, have to hear "partying on a yacht" and know that's the sort of thing Donald Trump does.
The same sort of person who doesn't care that Trump doesn't pay his taxes is currently acting Very Angry about allegations that Mark Kelly didn't pay his. I guess I'm curious how much of that is performative and how much of it is people just utterly lacking in cognitive dissonance. And whether it matters.
