Gaslighting 101

Please keep holding your breath.
Please.

Right after Prznint Grand Wizard’s Nuremberg-style Rally on Wednesday:

…And by Thursday morning, when the sheer horror of Hair Füror’s racist rally dawned on everyone not living in Possum Hollar, House Republican leaders pleaded with the White House to prevent it from becoming a fixture at his rallies like “lock her up.”

Republicans aren’t saying they won’t goosestep behind Hair Füror if the chant continues, they’re just worried it’ll be politically damaging. Such good Germans.

Anyway, somehow the message got through the bedrock of his skull, and Prznint Stupid told reporters:

It was quite a chant, and I felt a little bit badly about it. [But] I say there is far more energy on the right than there is on the left. I think we have far more support than they do and I think we have far more energy than they do. And we’re going to have a very interesting election. But I was not happy when I heard that chant.

Uh-huh. Stupid paused for about 12 seconds to make sure the whole arena could clearly hear it, he appeared to show approval, and shortly thereafter said, “Hey, if they don’t like it, let them leave, let them leave.”  But you know, better to gaslight us than admit anything.

This is the patented Hair Füror strategy: Whip up a frenzy, then disavow, and the press falls for the gaslighting everytime. Or do they?

The NYTimes:

“Trump disavowed the behavior of his own supporters in comments to reporters at the White House and claimed that he had tried to contain it, an assertion clearly contradicted by video of the event.”

The WSJ:

 “Donald Trump rarely admits a mistake, much less an overstatement, so we’ll take the regret he expressed Thursday at the chant of ‘send her back’ during his Wednesday rally as the moral equivalent of an apology. Let’s hope his supporters get the message, and that Mr. Trump stops egging them on.”

End of story? Just ask the “very fine people on both sides” about that. History repeats itself.

    The enthusiasm blows away our rivals on the Radical Left.

    I don’t think “enthusiasm” is exactly the correct word for what he’s seeing the crowds at his rallies do. It’s more similar to the frenzy displayed by a rabid pit bull with its nuts caught in a mousetrap.

    Anyway, they may be more frenzied than we are, but we’re more pissed off than they are, and there’s still more of us than there is of them.

      When I read the word “enthusiasm” I substituted “Hate”, and it seemed to make more sense then. They are like a pack of rabid Shitzus with a blood lust.

    The chants were not spontaneous. There was a scripted pause for the chanting, but the paid shills started too early — that’s where Dim Donnie claims he started speaking right away, but that was only because the “Pause for chants” was not scripted for that point.
    “Send her back”? That’s not a spontaneous chant. Shills placed in the mosh-pit started the chant. The video shows a majority of the people behind trump were not chanting, but rather looked embarrassed.
    Dim Donnie was obviously basking in the hate, as evidenced by his signature smirk, and by bobbing his head in time to the chants.
    Don’t get me started on the Pseudochrisitian republicans who tried to paint it as deological differences and stress,

    But they were, and are, okay with “Lock her up”, right?

    If the Orange Shitgibbon was reading from a teleprompter, who’s to say the crowd wasn’t following cues from one of those “Applause” lights. When an entire arena stops chanting in unison after 12 seconds, that’s a tell.

      Obviously, to gain admission to one of his rallies, the Trumptards must show their membership cards from Lowbrows Anonymous, and pass the required ‘knee-bend/ass-kiss’ test of ‘Applause 101.’ It’s too bad they won’t ‘go back from whence they came,’ ’cause this democracy will certainly be improved without their group ignorance.
