"Mr. Trump eats your soul in small bites. It starts with your sitting silent while he lies..." [View all]

"Mr. Trump eats your soul in small bites. It starts with your sitting silent while he lies, both in public and private, making you complicit by your silence. In meetings with him, his assertions about what 'everyone thinks' and what is 'obviously true' wash over you, unchallenged, as they did at our private dinner on Jan. 27, 2017, because hes the president and he rarely stops talking. As a result, Mr. Trump pulls all of those present into a silent circle of assent."

"Speaking rapid-fire with no spot for others to jump into the conversation, Mr. Trump makes everyone a co-conspirator to his preferred set of facts, or delusions. I have felt it this president building with his words a web of alternative reality and busily wrapping it around all of us in the room."

-James Comey, May 2019


I know he screwed some things up, but I feel like this man had this part of the situation analyzed correctly. This was done to him too.
