Saying what you think. 

When facts, logic and history don’t matter

Wasn't it Leona Helmsley who said something to the effect that only "little people" pay taxes? And Trump brags because he doesn't pay income taxes. We're the chumps in Trump's world.
This OpEd adds fuel to the fire suggesting you'll never find a reasoned open ear, from deaf, wildly partisan, self absorbed, always upset, liberals.
Geometry isn't different in an alternate universe. Euclidian and non-Euclidian geometry apply equally here--and presumably there.

"One geometry cannot be more true than another; it can only be more convenient."

Except that in Drumpf's geometry, pi is equal to 3, because those fiddly decimal points make the cipherin' so difficult.
Nov. 5, 2012, remarks in Australia: “This TPP sets the gold standard in trade agreements to open free, transparent, fair trade, the kind of environment that has the rule of law and a level playing field."
Strange? I have always been under the impression that the Second Coming was supposed to take place in Israel. Now it seems it's going to take place in New York in the form of a paunchy orange headed gut. Who knew!
First White House Media Relations Meeting: January 21, 2017
Kellyanne Conway: Special Advisor to the President

“OK, Mr. President, the next name on our Enemies List is conservative pundit Charles Krauthammer.”

President Donald J. Trump
"That man, Krauthammer, is a disgrace. A total loser. He keeps writing lies about me, and that has to stop. We should send some of our people out to pay him a visit. I'd personally like to punch him in the face. You know, rough him up a little.”

Kellyanne Conway
“Great idea. We will get on that right away, Mr. President.” 
Get real people
Trump does not drink coffee? And this is known because Trump (that person who NEVER tells a lie) said so?

Yet he is the same guy who bragged about snorting coke and banging all those women during the Vietnam era. He even claimed that he deserved the Purple Heart because of all the diseases he caught.

So - is it really so far out in left field to assume that Trump snorted coke prior to the debate?

a little blow for your nose does produce immediate bluster - and then you quickly lose stamina...
This is unvarnished "Strong Man" (Der starke Mann) longing of the basic Trump voter. Well said, Mr. Krauthammer. Trump, in this voter's view, will, indeed,"fix" things; whatever that "thing" might be, simply because he wills it to be so.

Indeed, fact, logic, history, and decency be damned.
"Clinton denying she ever said the Trans-Pacific Partnership was the gold standard of trade deals"

Secretary Clinton made every effort to explain this, but Trump wouldn't stop shouting over her, nor would the moderator intervene to insist she be given the opportunity to speak. So, she stood back and watched Trump 'be Trump.'

Secretary Clinton, even in the book she wrote at the time, believed the TPP, based on the outline and stated goals of the agreement would be the gold standard and she said so. She has also made clear that after the treaty details were decided (and after her book was written), the TPP did NOT live up to the outline and goals previously set, at which point she publicly denounced the TPP.

Clinton hasn't denied that she believed the TPP WOULD BE the gold standard--she makes clear she has never believed it achieved that status.
