David Corn to Conservatives who triumphantly cited Barr's letter: "Sorry"

All those conservatives who triumphantly cited Barr’s letter now have to accept the fact that Trump Is deceitful & a big liar. He lied to cover up the Trump Tower meeting. He lied to cover up his Trump Moscow project. He tried to force his own White House counsel to lie. Sorry.

2. It takes a big person to admit they're sorry, Mr. Corn.

3. I'm afraid Mr. Corn misunderstands what it is to be a "conservative" these days

Admit to no fault. Say the opposite of the truth and claim it to be the truth. Lie without embarrassment but with impunity.

Nope. I fully expect these conservatives to tell us that the redacted report actually vindicates the President. If Dems don't disabuse them of this tact, this is how the media will write the script and how the historians will recall this chapter of our (so-called) democracy.

8. Gren Gleenwald did just that on Amy Goodman - said it was a hoax

And he's not even a Conservative!

9. "Admit to no fault. Say the opposite of the truth and claim it to be the truth."

Precisely Hitler's tactic.

14. Precisely Hitler's kind of people

And what kind of people are the rest of us, that have let this monster rise again while we tried to make friends with it?

15. I'm still convinced that human beings

like Fascism. We seem to need authority figures, so we embrace them whenever and wherever they show up. Remember that many Americans not only liked Hitler, but contributed to his rise.

4. I think most Trump supporters already knew he was "deceitful & a big liar"

They didn't care. Don't expect that to change.

6. Saw one on teevee today saying "Trump is a despicable human being but I still support him."

Pal, that statement means that you are a despicable human being. And I use the term human loosely.

(Not addressed to the OP, but to the deplorable on teevee).

7. To be fair, some people could have a justifiable reason for saying that.

Some people just believe in the agenda. They want conservative judges or whatever. They may prefer it came in a more palatable package, but in the end, the package doesn't matter. I know people like that. They didn't vote for Trump in the Republican primary, and really wished he hadn't gotten the nomination, but there was no doubt that they were going to support the Republican. I'm really curious to see whether Weld gets any traction in the Republican primaries.

12. exactly - "yeah he may be a stupid embarrassing asshole, but he's a white supremacist"

and at the end of the day, that's all that really matters at this point in their agenda.

18. +1. The man and his agenda are evil, and if you support him, you're evil.

It's pretty straightforward.

17. The agenda they support is, in itself, evil.

So Trump's supporters, whether they endorse his personal evil qualities or not, are endorsing an evil agenda. The term "deplorable" is inadequate to describe them.

5. I'm sure they will be telling us

That the report vindicates Trump and is bullshit at the same time.

They don't really care about the truth, because the truth destroys their little fantasy world where everyone but the man who said Barack Obama is from Kenya is the bad guy.

10. David Corn is a great writer and an intelligent man

... but why is he putting this stuff out on Twitter? He needs to block about 80% of the responders on his twitter threads because most of them are bots and trolls.

11. :) No THEY don't and won't. It's a report, not a personality transplant.

But AMONG the ones who kept their mouths shut and wanted to see the report will be some who are another matter. We only need a relatively small percent to turn against what they're doing.
