Sidney Powell is absurdly desperate to attack the 2020 election results. John Iadarola and Jayar Jackson break it down on The Damage Report.
Matt and Katie discuss the latest on the debate over Covid stimulus negotiations, NYU professor Mark Crispin Miller talks academic freedom.
None. There is no argument that will convince these people.
You have to remember who we’re talking about. These are people who:
- Actually believed Trump would build a wall all along the Mexican border and make Mexico pay for it.
- Actually believed Trump would bring back coal. (Seriously. They sincerely thought this would happen. For real. They actually thought coal would come back because the President said so.)
- Actually believed that Trump had the biggest inauguration ever, bigger than Obama’s, no matter how many photographs they saw.
- Actually believed that Trump had a plan that would replace Obamacare and would be cheaper and better. (“Nobody knew health care could be so complicated.”)
These are people who live in a world of alternative facts, a place where the truth is whatever you want to be true and anything that says otherwise—like, for example, photographs of the inauguration—are a lie.
And I mean, Trump has said this before. Every election he loses is “rigged.” Rigged, rigged, rigged, rigged. It’s the only thing he can say.
They believed him when he said this before, why wouldn’t they believe him now?
No argument can change these people’s minds. They don’t live in the real world.
(Hey, guys, how are those coal jobs doing? Coming back, are they?)
