The Republican Party, like all pathologically troubled cults, is living in a bubble. It’s a bubble that most of the party’s members realize they are in, so the pathology is not that they believe the lies so much as they cannot stop themselves from continuing to lie. This is likely due to the fear that if they stop, the devil will show up to claim what they contractually gave up for their power. The propaganda machine behind the white supremacist in chief is powerful and large. The parasites that work at outlets like Fox News are afforded a better lifestyle than most, but must perform their single mindless job—spin a lie of misinformation for the machine.
Enter Lou Dobbs. Somewhere, in some secret panic room or long-forgotten storage space, there’s an old, dusty, termite-riddled Howdy Doody doll with Dobbs’ secret name written on parchment in blood tucked into its pocket. On Monday, Dobbs did his job for his orange leader and attacked the Democratic Party’s “deep state,” and more specifically, the famous deep-state character John Bolton. Buckle up!
Lou Dobbs is the kind of person that makes Rep. Louie Gohmert seem almost sentient. If you cannot see the connections Dobbs is making above, they are: Bolton to Comey; Bolton to Mitt Romney; and Bolton to Lt Col. Alexander Vindman. The screen carries the phrase “A tool for the left.” Yes. That John Bolton.
That’s right. Apparently Bolton’s gotten money from Robert Mercer. Sidenote: Mercer bankrolled Donald Trump by way of being Steve Bannon’s number one fan. BUT WHO CARES ABOUT REALITY????
The guests on Bolton’s show tried to take a more diplomatic tack, murmuring that even if Bolton’s assertions that Trump demanded a quid pro quo agreement with the Ukraine were true, Trump had every right to do so. At least these guys were willing to just say that there is no such thing as crime. Dobbs is clearly working the angle that there is no such thing as reality.
The internet went to work in the only way one can, to laugh in the face of this old troll of a stooge.
Oh no. They got to Lou too!?!?!?!
Watch out Fonzie, there are sharks in those waters.
