Why do people allow Trump to bloviate his way out of BS?

The Stahl interview is just the latest example, but he does the same thing CONSTANTLY...

#1 - State something untrue or ever-so-partially true as overly generalized and "fact" = "They got caught spying on my campaign."
#2 - Ignore requests for specific details with MORE generalities = "You know what they did, and it was so horrible."
#3 - Amplify the accusation = "Then they got caught and it was the worst thing in the history of our country."
#4 - Ignore the continued requests for clarification and details with insults = "You just won't print/air the truth."

Nowhere is "it" (the alleged spying or the alleged impact) ever quantified or defined.
Nowhere is the issue ever brought to verifiable actions or real reports (which all DIRECTLY CONTRADICT HIM).

And yet, he shamelessly continues the same bullshit.

It is like watching the old Monty Python skit for the "Argument Clinic" on a looped feed:

No it isn't
Yes it is
No it isn't
Yes it is
No it isn't
Yes it is
No it isn't
Yes it is

If you want me to go on arguing, you'll have to give me another 4 years in office...

Health care plan?
Pandemic response?
Economy - specifically jobs for the 8M newly impoverished?

He also says something like "we just added 11M jobs and its the best ever for our country" without proper context - that came on the heels of the 20+M jobs LOST in the start of this mess...so getting back about 50% of what was lost and then stalling out and still claiming credit for it being the "best ever"? Really? Is that how people think this works?

He is a bloviating gas bag of epic proportions and as useful as a screen door on a submarine.
He lies constantly and is incapable of handling criticism or failure and has no ability to grow or change.

The sooner he dies of a massive stroke, the better the universe becomes before his corpse is even cold and stiff.

R.I.P Eddie Van Halen (1955-2020)

Tragic loss to music and his family.

Rest in Peace Eddie...your talent and music touched millions around the world.
You will be missed.

Tonight I lift a glass on high and toast the universal karma...

My daily prayers are one large step closer to coming to fruition.
May COVID-19 ravage that asshat with the full force of every one of the nearly 210,000 dead Americans he has contributed to and sullied their memories.

He OWES more than money, and I want to see the bill collected - in full.
I do not want a recovery for him, I want a full blown infection and progression.

I want video of him being wheeled out of 1600 and airlifted to Bethesda, a sickly shade of purple instead of unholy orange.

May karma ever be minded because when she comes, she comes with force.
