Meanwhile, in an alternative fact universe...
It is about claims to reality that are fraudulent, meant to deceive, and boost the ego of a pathological narcissist..... (and, you said, give him a chance to work for the country... look at what he's preoccupied with.... a juvenile's obsession with anything remotely critical of him).
From his interview with ABC's David Muir:
MUIR: What you have been presented so far has been debunked. It has been called false.
TRUMP: Take a look at the Pew reports.
MUIR: I called the author of the Pew report last night and he told me that they found no evidence of voter fraud.
TRUMP: Really, then why did he write the report?
MUIR: He said no evidence of voter fraud.
TRUMP: Excuse me, then why did he write the report? According to Pew report, then he’s groveling again. You know, I always talk about the reporters. They grovel when they wanna write something that you wanna hear, but not necessarily millions of people wanna hear or have to hear.
We found millions of out of date registration records due to people moving or dying, but found no evidence that voter fraud resulted.— David Becker (@beckerdavidj) November 28, 2016
Voter lists are much more accurate now than when we issued that study in 2012, thanks to the 20 states sharing data through @ericstates_info— David Becker (@beckerdavidj) November 28, 2016
I guess it'd be like investigating Obama's birth certificate for 8 years while saying "you wouldn't believe what my people are finding".....Geesh, what a fraud! Any decent person when presented with facts and rational arguments would not keep repeating falsehoods because then they become intentional lies.
When Stupidity Dictates Public PolicyThis is when ideology, (especially those ideas derived from ages and societies steeped in ignorance), prevents even good-meaning people from doing sensible things that actually may help humanity.
Take for example abortion, which is something nobody likes. I mean everybody wants to see as few abortions as possible; none would be ideal. We can all agree to this. Right? Now, what do you think makes abortions rare? What are those factors that reduce abortions? We have the answer, and it is being pro-active, reach out, educate, provide access to health care.
Why in 2016 (source) we had the fewest abortions in the US since 1973 when the Supreme Court ruled on Roe v. Wade (legalizing abortion)? The facts are there, and they show that sex ed and most importantly women having access to various methods of birth control is what reduces abortions drastically. This is what has made abortion to decline for the last 20+ years.
What do you think Trump and the conservatives are doing now?.... Something that works or something that doesn't? The con leaders either prefer wilful ignorance or want to impress the religiously conservative base.... So, yeah, now with Trump and Pence at the WH, they'll begin to teach ..abstinence and the fear of God as preferred (but failed) method against abortion, while they'll be de-funding women's health clinics and education in human reproduction.
Are we great yet?
