Elliott Lusztig on twitter posted this about Donald Trump’s lie that millions voted illegally for Hillary Clinton. It’s a lie that has been repeated by Trump staff and Trump supporters since he originally posted the lie to social media.
Remember this with Republicans: They never make statements of fact. They make statements of intention. The Up North Progressive has spent two years exposing lies repeated multiple times by Republicans and they’re still repeating them today. Do they believe the lies? They don’t care if it’s true, they care about how much the gullible will react.
Progressive bloggers and journalists need to remember this when Trump and his minions lie for the next four years. Don’t waste your breath correcting the lies, understand that the lies are their plans for the future.
