Were not allowed to discuss politics in the office where I work. There are a couple of far right wingers who are Trumpians in a big way. Im somewhat friendly with one of them and was hoping she would have watched the hearing last night, so I asked her this am if she watched it, and she said no.
Probably didnt want to miss Tucker, but Im really disappointed her mind is so closed.
They view this as fake and a nothingburger no matter what details or evidence you bring to them.
This is what happens when you live in alternative fact world. When you can present lies as facts and condition people to ignore everything that isn't from your mouth. There is no reaching these people.
You cant get much more conservative than Liz Cheney. It was a smart idea having her outline the hearings.
Anyone who isn't a crazy Trumper is a democrat in their eyes. They do not care one bit about their "traditional conservative value" one bit. Their litmus test is whether they are fully on board with TFG and TFG alone.
I agree with you about having Adam Kissinger and Liz Chaney there because we are aiming to convince the middle of the road people. And having republicans there will give us more credibility in those people's eyes.
and he and his guests talking over it -- to debunk testimony and present the conspiracy narrative they've been pushing for the past 18 months. Plus a lot of other ways of reality tweaking and denying. When the hearing showed video of the Jan 6 violence, Fox's audience got to see the audience in the hearing chamber instead. And so on.
So if you ask again, your coworker might say she had. And she might believe it -- but hopefully not.
She knows said they didn't watch and would vote for him again. So that's that
I am already seeing posts on social media from Trumpers saying its all made up and the rioters were paid actors, etc.
You cant reason with stupid.
Nothing will sway them. I want to concentrate on moderate sane people. Trumper are lost causes
And on people who don't pay attention until they have a ballot to fill out. And people who don't vote.
blamed Nancy Pelosi for not calling in the National Guard. There is no way those people will ever listen to logic and sanity. They have no moral compass.
They have no desire to stop hating anyone who disagrees with them. That would mess with their security in believing they are special!!
Would feed themselves into a chipper shredder feet first if Trump demanded it. Dont expect miracles.
The Trumpies are putting out their propaganda 24/7 in their media machine, repeating their lies over and over.
That's what I hope these televised hearings will accomplish. Break through their media wall and expose the lies.
We won't sway the Trumpies, who will physically put their fingers in their ears when challenged (yes, I have personally witnessed this).
We may catch the attention of Regular Folk who see coverage of these hearings and say "I didn't know all that was going on".
