How Do You Govern When Half The Country Is Trapped In A Disinformation Bubble? | All In | MSNBC 1

  1. I’ve yet to encounter a Trump supporter that doesn’t argue the Earth is flat. They are the furthest removed from reality of any people I’ve met.

    • @Raptango_NA, man, none of those court cases brought forward have included fraud accusations, so I’m a little confused about how any more trump campaign cases wouldn’t also be thrown out, please regale us with your hot take on these new cases

      so ignorance is shown by contemp prior to any OBJECTIVE investigation
      Orange man bad much dunce? Selfish fool. Youll get no free stuff
      just a shovel of dirt in your face from starving to death
      Communism never killed anyone right?

    • @Raptango_NA haha good grip on reality, the mans a con man he lost the election fair and square now fighting to steal it no chance, the man has no respect look at the coronavirus deaths 252000 no respect for women a bankrupt wants to date his daughter friends with Epstein calls the military losers paid 750 bucks in taxes not bad for a so-called billionaire glad you respect these fine man shows your mental state

    • @Shane P Davis2 Hey look, another Q nutjob. Why are you wasting your time on Youtube? Don’t you have some kids to save from the Satanic, child-blood drinking Democrats? It’s actually pretty funny that you morons adopted your crazy conspiracy from a Stephen King novel.

  2. AGREED 👍💯 CRAZY! Ignorance is the great lack!

  3. Sadly these folks have been fed lies – distortions – conspiracy theories – by right wing nut radio and TV for years – Rush – Hannity – et. al.

  5. Rush has done catastrophic damage to this country.

    Stupidity didn’t just drop magically down on the MAGA cults’ heads. Rather, they made a deliberate choice to become, and remain, ignorant.

    • @Billithekat Thats why they are so afraid to lose. They know what they are doing is wrong and know that they will pay for it the next 4 years

      @robert taylor Totally agree, at 1st, when Obama was trying to push Obamacare (sorry I can’t remember the actual name)
      Republicans were fighting him all the way with their socialist BS argument from the cold war era, I was fooled, I admit, by that lie. But Obama didn’t give-up,
      I realized, he’s fighting against all the private Healthcare bureaucy so that people can have Healthcare that normally they would’ve been turned away. I don’t think people understand how GOVERNMENT Healthcare works, just look at Canada. I’ve heard private Healthcare companies staff being paid off very well to say how terrible these GOVERNMENT Healthcare is.

    • It is not ‘stupidity’ that people joined those ‘cults’. They found ‘friends’ in those ‘groups’.

    • Jefferson Johanes | November 21, 2020 at 1:45 AM | Reply

      Notice why he won in rural ares which has low economic prospect inhabited with uneducated people. No wonder they are just easily fooled. I mean, these lots aren’t different than those in 3rd world country really.

    • @Jefferson Johanes Exactly…which is why they still live like its the 1950’s and refuse to progress and embrace science above some deity that you cant even prove exists. These people still believe that the religious fairytale is reality and most of it has been completely white washed anyway. Something invented to keep the masses in line.

  9. They are not trapped. They glady entered the bubble of their own free will, and of their own free will, they choose to stay.

    • yeah, i think it’s more that the media is just giving people what they want to hear, than being trapped… I’d be honored if some fellow concerned citizens would take a quick listen to my acoustic piano & vocal YT performance of DANCING IN THE DARK by Bruce Springsteen in tribute to the United States of America and our next President, Joseph R. Biden. Peace and everybody stay safe.

    • Will Ritter I listened to it. Good journeyman work. And lol, more ballsy and difficult than most people think to put a video up of a single take of just you, a piano, and a microphone. Good job!

    • Yee Chien Chang-Webb | November 21, 2020 at 1:09 AM | Reply

      Partially perhaps. But once you get stuck in a web of lies, it’s hard to break free. You need the courage to recognise your entire reality is false, and that can be terrifying. You also need the reassurance that when you do come out on the other side that there will be love and support and acceptance. I dont think they have either.

    • 100% it validates and empowers this grotesque form of existence

    • When all their ‘friends’ are in the ‘group’, where do you want them to go? … and, ‘we’ are not very good at making ‘friend’ with ‘those’ … so what ‘free will choice’ do they have again?

  10. Really stop and think about HOW CRAZY this has gotten when they tell you to not believe SCIENCE, FACTS. These freaking people are crazy.

    This will get worse, GOP has accepted corruption as a way of business, anybody in their will way is collateral damage!!

    “It is easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.”

  13. The Trumpsters are just another Jim Jones cult.

  14. Hillary Clinton was correct about the deplorables in America.

    • @Lynne Anderson I tend to agree yeah. But Bernie can’t win because too many people are against high taxes. Don’t get me wrong! We DO need higher taxes, but you have 40 years+ of anti-tax and anti-government campaigns that have convinced people that taxes are always bad. Unfortunately, you lose a lot of people in the middle with Bernie–I know a lot of people disagree with this, but I do think its the truth!

    • @Christa L Biden has stated that he has no real interest in pursuing a lot of investigations, he is hoping to cury some good faith/ will with some Republicans inorder to get some much needed legislation accomplished for the country. I get that it’s a game of give and take or atleast use to be, although I would certainly like to see some serious investigations and inditements.

      ​@Tony Martin How INFINITELY HYPOCRITICAL because it’s ONLY leftwingers who care about the poor and ARE poor. But rightards like christians/muslims/nationalists/republicunts/democraps force more and more oppression onto those already in prison and upon the poor.

    • The Ultimate Reductionist | November 21, 2020 at 12:58 AM | Reply

      ​@Brian Wilson So which is it: you rightards are ANARCHISTs or are you LAW & ORDER COMMUNISTS?
      Racist police who harrass and terrorize civilians DESERVE to have bricks thrown at them.
      Bleeding heart cuntservatives typical: giving only one side to a story.
      Love the way you give ZERO recognition for WHY people might want to fight back against cops and big invasive government. So you must be a PEACENIK. Because I don’t hear you whine ONE-SIDEDLY about all the violence and killing by the US military in Iraq.

    • @Bryan Machin the real snobs are the elitist rich and super rich republicans, who really looks down on all of us.

  15. America was broken before Trump, he just took it to the next level of stupidity.

  16. Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity… Dr. M.L.King

    They’re not trapped. They’re willing accomplices. They believe and regurgitate everything that moron says.

    • Radio Queen Bee | November 21, 2020 at 1:03 AM | Reply

      @D SP They believed Hitler because they wanted to. They wanted a scapegoat and Hitler gave them one. Labeling them as mentally ill absolves them of responsibility for their part in the massacre of millions of people.

    • @Radio Queen Bee many of them, after the war, couldn’t understand what had taken over them. Some of them were indoctrinated as children or youth. The same is happening across the USA. This is an indoctrination and psychological warfare being perpetrated by financially and politically conservative elites upon their conservative bases to perpetuate their financial and political power. The base is their victims.

    • Your so very right!

    • @Radio Queen Bee saying they “wanted to believe it” doesn’t actually weaken my point. I would argue it strengthens my point. How? Because the fact that they “wanted to believe it” is an indication of prior susceptibility, they already had a pre-existing predilection to being mentally and psychologically manipulated and abused, and that was taken advantage of by the abuser.

      When Trump said he could shoot someone on Fifth Ave and not lose any supporters, Trump didn’t mean that they loved him, he meant that he knew they already had mental problems and he hit the jackpot.

      Don’t forget, Trump tried three previous times to become a presidential contender with other parties, including the Democratic Party, but he failed each time because on average their voters are not susceptible to disinformation.

      In the Republican base, however, I regrettably admit (as a conservative), Trump was like Goldilocks who found the perfect porridge, which was just right for his abuse. Trump is not a Republican, Trump is not a conservative, he never has been and never will be, but he “became” one as a means to an end because he identified in a large segment of conservative voters a psychological vulnerability he could exploit and worsen. And he did just that.

      Trump was evil genius in the way he abuses his supporters, because it is his own supporters which are Trump’s target victims.

    • It’s an easy sell – the only thing TRUMPism does is validate the worst in rural white America that otherwise not be condoned. Naked, overt racism normally not tolerable but TRUMP made it acceptable. Why do you think they’re crying that “OMG none of the others understand US!!!”

  18. Trust blind authority, no. Trust experts w scientific methods, yes.

    • Trust what makes sense to you and don’t settle for explanations that do not satisfy your curiosities and your sensibilities.

      @paul harris that’s what flat earther do. Flat earthers are wrong. they think they are “sensible” when they actually dont understand the complexity of the situation
