Always remember that the autocrat's number one target is the truth. Trump lies so often, even when he doesn't have to, because it discredits reality and presents him as the arbiter of what is real.
Trump just admitted firing Inspector General Atkinson as retribution. “He’s a total disgrace.” Actually, he abided by the law and the complaint was spot on. Someone who follows the law and their conscience is no disgrace. A president that fires him, he’s the disgrace.
This is the God's honest truth. #Gallagher killed kids, and #Crozier tried to save them. There is something poisonous, and rotten in this country when a hero is fired and a murderer is pardoned. #RememberInNovember
Just watched video of USS Roosevelt crew robust farewell for their CO Captain Crozier, fired for protecting his ship. @Acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas B. Modly: you fit right in with the worst administration in US history. Petty. Corrupt. Sycophantic. Good luck recruiting best and brightest for our great Navy.
Leadership is not only acknowledging the brutal facts but having the courage to stand alone and make the tough decisions, with heart, even when you might suffer for it. You can't BS sailors. They also know real leadership when they see it.
When Ivanka married Jared, I remember asking a politically conservative friend of mine who was in classes with him at Harvard what his deal was. I will never forget the response: "Dumber than the hockey recruits." In retrospect, completely unfair to the hockey recruits too.
First, Trump says he alone will do the oversight on billions in relief money. Then, he says he’ll ignore the transparency provisions required by Congress. Now, he says any oversight is a “witch hunt.” But here’s the truth: Real oversight is vital, because incompetence kills.
This x 1000 👇 “The Dunning-Kruger effect is a term that describes a psychological phenomenon in which stupid people do not know that they are in fact stupid.” “When stupid people think they're smart, they do maximum damage. That's where we are with Trump and the pandemic.”
