    Default It's a fact?

    One of the wierder Trumpisms.... he says 'it's a fact', and then says 'I don't know'......

    Isn't that exactly the sort of rhetoric he used when promoting birtherism?

    The White House correspondent for the One America News Network asked whether Ms Omar, a Representative for Minnesota, should be investigated for possibly marrying her sibling.

    “There’s a lot of talk about the fact that she was married to her brother. I know nothing about it. I hear she was married to her brother,” Mr Trump responded. .
    "Reason and facts are sacrificed to opinion and myth. Demonstrable falsehoods are circulated and recycled as fact. Narrow minded opinion refuses to be subjected to thought and analysis. Too many now subject events to a prefabricated set of interpretations, usually provided by a biased media source. The myth is more comfortable than the often difficult search for truth."

    A lot of people say....
    "No matter which faction of the party with which you identify, whether left, center left, centrist, blind partisan, social justice warrior, Dem leaning Indie, or Never-Trumper, job one is defeating these Republicans badly enough that they will BACK THE F OFF.

    If that doesn't happen, there will be no climate change fix, no inequality fix, no better health care, jobs, .... no future. It is vital to stop them now and do it decisively." -- sonofswen

    A lot of people have facts, some peoples facts are more impressive than others. Donald has the biggest facts. Even the facts he’s about to hear are the best.

    Nah, he is not the clearest of thinker but.

    Add some punctuation and you get a different picture when he answers the question "Ms Omar, a Representative for Minnesota, should be investigated for possibly marrying her sibling."

    There’s a lot of talk about "the fact that she was married to her brother".
    I hear (people say) she was married to her brother.


    I know nothing about it."

    His big tell is the word “sir” when he quotes someone and he says they called him “sir” there is a really good chance he is lying or exaggerating. This from a reporter that has fact checked everything trump has said since the election.
