From a Metafilter thread about the new administation:
“These people are doing their dirt completely in public, and openly lying their faces off to the entire world, and they’re just going to repeat their lies.
I don’t think they expect us to believe them, I think they lie as they do to let those who are against them know they don’t care what we think and that don’t care if they’re hurting anyone. They would have to be utter idiots to think anyone outside of their small base actually believes anything they say, including “a”, “and” and “the”.
“Do we get the picture, shut up, and go away so they can finish their dirt? And their base thinks it’s marvelous.
“How does anyone counter such baldfaced wretchedness, greed, and spite?”
