Actually beautiful. When confronted with simple proof that he’s mistaken, Chris admits that he “missed that one” however shortly pivots to the thought it was all a giant joke (which he clearly didn’t suppose 10 seconds earlier than, when he advised O’Sullivan the video was actual) after which repeats his perception that it’s the type of factor that might be true about Biden — even when this explicit video was doctored.
Being confronted with info does not change his view. In truth, confronted with the info in regards to the video, Chris quickly finds a technique to justify all of it and to remain satisfied that Biden most likely did go to sleep throughout an interview in some unspecified time in the future (even when he has no proof that such a factor really occurred.)
“Keep on with us. Do not consider the crap you see from these individuals, the pretend information. … What you are seeing and what you are studying is just not what’s taking place.”
Trump does this not as a result of he really believes there isn’t a such factor as goal reality however relatively as a result of it really works for him politically. He has spent the previous 5 years casting himself because the voice of the common Joe — and telling that individual that not solely do the so-called “elites” within the Democratic Social gathering, enterprise world and media look down on them however those self same persons are rigging the system (the entire system) towards the working particular person.
Trump and his crew peddling data has change into, in an extremely twisted little bit of logic, proof to the President’s supporters of his authenticity. He may be mistaken about this one factor — like Biden falling asleep in an interview — however general he is proper that it is the type of factor Biden would do. So what distinction does it make?
The reply is that it makes all of the distinction on the earth. If we have now reached a degree the place we not solely cannot inform the distinction between “true” and “false” but additionally have a good time untruth as some type of advantage, we’re in deep, deep hassle.
