The phrase shown above is taken from Hamlet, by William Shakespeare.
It has been used as a figure of speech, in various phrasings, to describe someone's overly frequent and vehement attempts to convince others of some matter of which the opposite is true, thereby making themselves appear defensive and insincere.
The master of this technique, naturally, is Donald Trump, and he used it again yesterday at the press conference at Trump Tower. By now, it’s obvious that Vladimir Putin ordered the hacking the Democratic websites, in order to ensure that Donald Trump got elected. Trump, incidentally, also had some help from James Comey of the FBI and Senate Majority Mitch McConnell (which is why Elaine Chao was offered a cabinet position). As a result, his “election” is totally fraudulent, and should be voided, so that the REAL winner (Hillary Clinton) can be sworn in on January 20.
At yesterday’s press conference, Trump refused to take a question from Jim Acosta of CNN because he said it was a fake news site, but he DID take questions from Breitbart, which IS a fake news site.
Trump has already been briefed about Russia’s involvement by our intelligence agencies, but refused to acknowledge their opinions, a fact that Steve Benson of the Arizona Republic summed up perfectly on Monday with his “Central Intelligence Absence” cartoon on Monday of this week.
