I'm sick and tired of two specific lies being told by the Trump supporters

1) That Trump's transcript of his call with Zelinski proves no quid pro quo,

and,

2) The Mueller report exonerated Trump.

Neither of these are the truth, yet the right never misses a chance to parrot these falsehoods.

3. They do it because it works

Unfortunately, it is well documented that, even knowing this to be true does not diminish its efficacy.

The repitition of lies works, full stop.

So, every repetition, even as an effort to debunk, actually is counter-productive.

A sad fact. Keep in mind as you soldier on.

4. You're meant to feel exhausted and frustrated

I've adopted the expedient of saying "It's not a transcript; even says so on page 1" and "No it didn't; you aren't paying attention." It doesn't lead to any explication, but for now, I figure that denying their alternate reality is about as much as is possible.

6. Wanna watch their heads explode?

Ask 'em this:

"If the Mueller Report exonerated your god, then why is Bill Barr going around and trying to discredit the investigation by asking foreign intelligence services to investigate it?"

7. Careful - flying bits of brain can be messy.

You could cause a tiny, tiny mess.

9. I'd recommend slapping a thimble on their heads right before detonation.

Should contain the explosion.

8. Or even that the summary of the call is, in fact, not a transcript. nt

10. When they tell you to read the transcript (which isn't a transcript) tell them

they should read the "transcript." Trumpers are primarily parrots of Dear Leader. They can't think for themselves.
