    More than 30 years ago, Donald Trump is reported to have ordered key staff to buy thousands of copies of The Art of the Deal to make it seem more popular than it was. Now his eldest son Donald Trump Junior has been accused of doing the same thing for his diatribe "Triggered", after the New York Times bestseller list revealed its sales had been boosted by bulk purchases.

    Earlier this month, reporters pointed out that the Republican National Committee was emailing supporters urging them to contribute funds in exchange for a signed copy of Triggered, which is subtitled How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us.

    When I walked into the local library this morning, "Triggered" was prominently displayed on the table near the entrance, and I could feel the bile rising in my throat. Needless to say, I wouldn't waste a minute perusing the contents, and I sure as hell would not buy the damn thing. The book is simply another example of Trump using his presidency to enrichen either himself or a member of his family.

    Oh, and one more thing ...

    The Republican National Committee just admitted it used $94,800 of donor's money to buy copies of Junior's book so it would make it on the New York Times Bestseller's list.

    And the dumb asses in this country still believe that the GOP is not corrupt and "god" and "Jesus" will help them to get more "money" and " followers, as long as they believe Trump and his family is "holy" and "above the law" . May be Putin will "retrain" these idiots once this country has become part of the Russian Empire. Amen

    And nothing is corrupt in this government? Ukraine is "holy" compared to this country under Trump. I guess the dumb voters here are proud if that! But yeah these voters have never heard of an "emoluments" clause.

    It really is a reminder how pathetic the 40 percent or so of the population that believes this false narrative. I saw a clip the other day of a pretend journalist asking people on the street questions that had no bearing on the truth. For example, "should Gerald Ford pardon Trump if he is convicted by the Senate?"

    People didn't bat an eye. They tried to make up serious informed answers, but it was obvious they didn't know shit. It's not just that the average person on the street doesn't know diddly about basic civics, they don't know much about the news either, other than perhaps what they see on Fox News. But many of these people (many of them young) don't watch Fox News either. They are just ignorant of national and world news and events.

    Ignorance is bliss.

    Schmidt:

    I'm starting to suspect that the people on "Lie Witness News" can't possibly be real (for example, how many women actually wear curlers in their hair when they are out in public?) , since nobody could be THAT stupid.

    Then again, I know a few Trump supporters who aren't that bright, and some of the "letters to the editor" in the Arizona newspapers confirm the fact that maybe they are that stupid.

    How often in the past I've said that the education in this country is about the worst there is; the problem is that they rather spent money on the army then educate people here; it is health care for the "brain". But yeah they rather keep them dumb, so much easier to manipulate them. Especially in the thinly populated States, the teachers are likely as dumb as the students and never have been outside this "island" or studied how the rest of the world thinks or works.
