They just latch on to some other crackpot theory...
I ask one the other day about the big 5g invasion that was suppose to happen.

4. Trump, not Biden, flies on Air Force One?

I’ll bet she’s made comments about Joe falling on the stairs as he boards Air Force One.

Trump is using a Cessna, because he can’t afford to fix his old 757.

8. I know a couple people that do believe all this stuff. You can't talk

to them any opposing facts are fake news. They both spout the same crap that Biden doesn't have the nuclear codes Trump has them and the latest they think he will be back in August. I have heard the same thing that Trump still flies on AF1. They even claim Biden is a
robot. That stuff is even too crazy for Fox News.

16. True. Fox News won't explicitly push those conspiracies.

However, Fox was the conduit for bringing those people into the bubble and convincing them that all other media outlets were "liberal" news and that it was somehow false and that Fox was the only real source of information. To the point that when Fox had to step back to protect its own legal situation, many of those viewers turned on them and went (at least temporarily) to Newmax and OANN where they were more willing to engage in the fantasy.

Now, it is up to the children of Trump devotees to help their parents to think critically.

It would, they just come up with an excuse why they were right but got the date wrong.

Only some get peeled off. Keep hoping they see the light.

How do they know what hey think they know?
Mercy, how did we ever survive this long?

in this dialogue. As crazy as she was, she was still reachable.

But I can't even take calls from my foxbot brother now. Am totally "sick & done with" their fantasy shit.
