No, NASA did not invent thunderstorms to cover up the sound of space battles.
That’s some shit from the alt-universe.
Not everyone can admit that Donald Trump is a mentally ill narcissist. Not even after his batshit performance at the C.I.A., or his batshit performance at his meeting with congressional leaders. but stop saying he’s “thin-skinned.” He’s a mentally ill narcissist. Stop marvelling that he can’t get over the real universe fact he lost the popular vote by 2.8 million votes, and created (and continues to repeat to every captive audience he can) a monstrous lie that asserts 3 to 5 million “illegals” voted for Hillary Clinton. He’s a mentally ill narcissist, and he’s acting out, just like he has for five fucking decades.
Stop saying trump is a man of “contradictions”; that he says one thing in the morning and contradicts himself in the afternoon. He’s a mentally ill narcissist— that means he’s completely untethered from reality morning, noon and night.
Donald Trump is a proven liar. He lies often and effortlessly. He lies about the profound and the trivial. He lies to avoid guilt and invite glory. He lies when his pride is injured and when his pomposity is challenged.

The people of the United States deserve a president who tells the truth.
Lying President Grab’em is psychopathically fixated on the fact that his inauguration wasn’t as big as President Obama‘s. Now Trump has doubled down, insisting the only he lost the popular vote was because 5 million people living in the country illegally cast a vote for Hillary Clinton. ALL 50 STATES certified their elections without reporting such fraud.
Perhaps worse, his hand puppet, Sean Spicer, also lives in the alt-universe with his master. He justified Trump’s federal hiring freeze with the false assertion that it was to curb “dramatic expansion of the federal workforce in recent years.” Sorry, Butthead, the federal workforce has held pretty steady around 2 million since the 1950s.
The president of the United States needs to demand of himself— and of his staff— that comments presented to the American people can be trusted, and supported, by legitimate — and not “alternative” — facts. Without that basic level of trust, the very functioning of our federal government and our nation is at risk.
Success may generate courage and promote confidence, but wisdom comes only from the experiences of adjustment to the results of one’s failures. Men who prefer optimistic illusions to reality can never become wise. Only those who face facts and adjust them to ideals can achieve wisdom. Those timid souls who can only keep up the struggle of life by the aid of continuous false illusions of success are doomed to suffer failure and experience defeat as they ultimately awaken from the dream world of their own imaginations.
