The absolute bullshit that comes our of academia and “science” today never ceases to astound me. These people are absolutely full of shit IMO! Case in point? Here’s the latest and it concerns PRESIDENT ELECT DONALD TRUMP:
“Unethical amnesia” could explain some of Donald Trump’s forgetfulness” reads the headline on AOL News this morning. The article notes that Trump made headlines this past week by “forgetting” a campaign promise. On his “Thank you tour” Trump said in Indiana that he “forgot” he’d promised to save American jobs at the Carrier gas furnace factory in Ohio. In fact, he said he “found out” about HIS promise only when he saw a Carrier employee talking about it on TV! Trump went on to say, “And I never thought I made that promise. Not with Carrier. I made it for everybody else. I didn’t make it really for Carrier.” FACT CHECK is that Trump DID in FACT pledge to keep Carrier jobs in the US rather than letting them go to Mexico. And, Trump made that pledge SEVERAL TIMES during his presidential campaign! So why did Trump forget?
Well leave it up to a Business Insider report to come up with an ABSOLUTE BULLSHIT explanation! That opinion article refers to new social science research (what a load of CRAP) about what is being called “unethical amnesia.” And just what is that? “Research” conducted by social science professors at Northwestern and Harvard Universities shows that some people have poor memories when they engage in dishonest behavior such as those who run for office and make campaign promises like Trump. This research concluded that after a person engages in unethical behavior (ie: LYING!) memories of their actions become more “obfuscated” over time because of the “psychological distress” (ie: GUILT) and discomfort such misdeeds cause. In other words, people who LIE tend to not be able to KEEP THEIR LIES STRAIGHT because they tell so many LIES they forget which lies they’ve told! And we had to have a social science “research study” for this??? And the “cure” for this “unethical amnesia”? The Northwestern and Harvard academics say the cure is to “reflect.” WTF? Reflect? Don’t you mean “try to remember what LIES you’ve told and to whom you’ve told them to”?
So is this a taste of what we’re going to get for the upcoming 4 years (and hopefully not any longer than that)? The conservative press making up excuses for Trump? (and YES I consider Business Insider a right wing Corporatist media). The FACT is that Donald Trump made a lot of promises he knew he couldn’t keep during his campaign just as all other people running for office do. His sole purpose was to get votes and get elected so he, like all other politicians, told people what he thought they wanted to hear. He latched on to the far right winger agenda and played it like a fine tuned fiddle! He simply told the right wingers what they wanted to hear and they fell of him lock, stock, and barrel. But, NOW that he’s been elected there is a PROBLEM for all of you right wingers out there in never-never-land.
That right winger problem is Trump is appointing cabinet and staff officials to his administration that stand in DIRECT OPPOSITION to many of the positions he took during his campaign! For example, this ExxonMobile CEO that (rumor says) he’s going to name as his Secretary of State does NOT support America becoming energy independent AND he has stated in the past that he SUPPORTS A CARBON TAX! Those two items are directly opposed to what Trump said during his campaign as Trump specifically stated and tweeted that he was absolutely opposed to a carbon tax and that he absolutely supports America becoming energy independent. So why is Trump appointing people that are at the opposite ends of his agenda? “Unethical amnesia” perhaps? LMAO!
Let me enlighten you and especially all you right wingers out there…………….
Donald Trump is a PLAYER AND ACTOR in case you haven’t noticed. His “reality” TV hit “The Apprentice” was amazing and Trump played the role of “big boss man” absolutely perfectly. But it was an ACT designed for TELEVISION! In fact, all of these so called “reality shows” have little to nothing to do with REALITY at all. Example: I don’t know about you but if I were stuck on an island or deep in the wilderness and was trying to survive I’d be killing me some shit like rabbits, deer, wild boars, birds, fish, etc. I’ll be damned if I would be sitting around eating rice and cockroaches! Another example: If I went hunting for Bigfoot and I got pics, DNA, and various sorts of physical evidence that the creature actually exists I’d make sure to PROVE IT beyond ANY doubt to the entire world using REAL SCIENCE so that its existence would be undeniable! I’ll be damned if I’d be running to and fro unshaven and looking one of the Beverly Hillbillies looking at “evidence” (photos, blood, etc) gotten by other people and just walk away without taking possession of that evidence for testing! Like I said. There all of these “reality shows” have nothing to do with REALITY and that includes Trump’s “The Apprentice.”
I’ve personally always believed that a man or woman’s ACTIONS speak far louder than their words and in the case of our President-elect his recent actions in appointing his cabinet and staff are INCONSISTENT with his words spoken BY HIM during HIS campaign for POTUS. That tells me HE LIED! This guy isn’t even in office yet! He’s appointing people that stand in direct opposition to his campaign rhetoric and promises and that tells me that in Trump’s mind running for POTUS was just another “reality show.” Well guess what America? LIFE ISN’T A FRICKIN REALITY SHOW!! In MY opinion Donald Trump is already proving he’s a LIAR! He’s already showing us just how well he played and conned us! He’s already laughing at how stupid and foolish We The People have been AGAIN all the way to the Oval Office!! Continue reading
