Why Trump Needs To Create A 'False Picture Of Reality' | Morning Joe | MSNBC

108 Comments on "Why Trump Needs To Create A ‘False Picture Of Reality’ | Morning Joe | MSNBC"

  1. Because “real” reality has him in prison for the last few, pathetic years of his miserable life.

  2. trump’s tactics are similar to Jim Jones’ in a lot of ways….he and his followers wanted to escape from their imaginary, perceived enemies, so they fled to Jonestown and created their own little bubble. and we all know how that ended…

    • But we were told by the Governors of California, Washington and Oregon it was Climate Change that caused these fires : Authorities arrest 4 in connection to possible arson, fires along West Coast

      Oregonian -Four have been arrested on suspicion of arson in West Coast areas already under seige from major destructive and deadly blazes, according to Fire Officials’ reports.

      As wildfires continue to rage across three states, police investigated separate incidents near existing wildfires. Two men in Washington state, one man in Oregon and one woman in California are facing charges, according according to the LA Times

      The latest reports suggest that at least 20 people have died in California, eight in Oregon and one in Washington state as firefighters struggle to contain already deadly fires.

      Guess what else these three Governors have in common…..wait for it…..uncontrolled rioting/looting and they are Democrats

      We are still waiting for CNN to blame Climate Change for Coronavirus and teen pregnancies.

    • Jim Jones was a monster. If trump were to do this he would be a great American hero for ridding the world of the most destructive person post ww2 and his cult herd before they become “white ISIS”

      Oops! I meant that I “do” believe Trump is being counseled by Putin.

      I wish Trump’s followers would get in line…and drink up !!!

    • John PrivateLastName So true! This administration has revealed how many new laws and constitutional amendments we need. Hopefully the lessons won’t be forgotten or ignored. We must take action to prevent these crimes and blatant corruption from happening again. God save Democracy! / Socialism-because it takes the balance of both for for either to work. Example: Social Security is important to our civilized “society “. We don’t want cake, we want food!

  3. His uneducated cult loves his lies

  4. Alternative Facts are working for 40% of the US registered voters population. How is this happening?

  5. In any real democracy the Don would be in jail.

    • @Blue Hungary, Poland, Belarus, Russia, Turkey and others are not democracies but the USA should be, in essence, an example and not a laughing stock with this person in charge. Research it.

    • V Ayres What is your point?

    • Living below sea level, or on a fault line, or in dry drought hot areas, or on the coast, or in a desert, or…… Where is a safe place to live? Climate, plague, racism , and government corruption deniers will be the end of humans. Look around and wake Up! Look at what is happening, not what government says is happening. You want truth? Go to a hospital. Go to the 12 states and many countries ( yes countries) that are burning. Go to a protest. Then go to an unmasked rally. Trust me, you don’t want to die from the inability to breath. All of these conditions make it hard to breath. These truths make me sad. Please see.

    • Jets Tom there’s probably been more arson along the western coast it’s stupidity if you ask me

    • Mr Fugazi I Agee, your comment is stupid.

  6. Republicans all drunk the Kool-Aid. We know how that turned out.

  7. Because it’s the only way to keep his blind supporters in the dark and give shade to a corrupt Republican Party!

  8. Someone needs to bring Fox news to testify in front of congress. They are a big part of the problem.

  9. And unfortunately his Zombie deplorables believe every single lie that the Orange thing tells . Just read through the comments and it is easy to spot the Zombie Deplorables .

  10. Trump’s small, shriveled brain is in it’s own reality.
    In Trump’s reality, he is successful, powerful, and without faults.
    The opposite of the real world.

    • @Walter Dayrit Trumpsters are such dopes. They insist on due process, charges, evidence, a trial that sort of nonsense.

    • @esj8341 It’s also quite obvious that if you have a lot of money and powerful political connections, you can easily “influence” the American judicial system to your favor.

    • John Matthews… He paid out of pocket and with contributions and he has yet to take a salary instead donating his every year. He has played a little golf at HIS resorts but not played as much as Obama and who the taxpayer payed for. Mexico did not pay, that is true, although they are paying for the military at their own Southern border which has helped(I am currently in Mexico at my 2nd home), raking leaves is reference to forest management that has been a problem since the big fire 100 years ago in California. The undergrowth is the major problem, that and arson. Obamacare is a true disaster and at least the mandates are gone but unless you have it, which I guarantee you don’t, you have no room to talk. COVID is a political hoax and China is at fault, not Trump. He was fast with shutting down flights to Chine late January while Biden and Nancy called that move Xenophobic, rapidly organizes a public private force to deal with the problem…I watched every single COVID afternoon update from the beginning with CDC et al…Did you watch those? This is unprecedented and really the greatest help would have been CDC and NIH teaching the public about hygiene through the years after lesser endemics. It’s very infectious but low mortality in fact for those under 40 it’s a lower mortality than Influenza. Over 40, if you are obese or diabetic or other self inflicted disease, you could be at risk. Only 6% of over 60 infected had no apparent underlying disease although every human over 60 is closer to death than birth. The caravans were real…Mexico is now stopping those at their southern border.

    • debunkthejunk1 China was destroying us on trade and no our deficit is not higher.

    • Sharon Brown poor Sharon…another unsuccessful bitter liberal white woman. And it’s ‘sister’.

  11. If I didn’t know any better, I’d swear this woman was describing a traitor.

    She is. Donald Trump.

    Don’s always “lived” in his own World. In my World people “believe” in “radical” concepts like Science, honor, truth, and decency.

  13. If people can’t see it then they are not patriotic or American. They are cult members

    • https://thelibertydaily.com/ Drudge Report replacement.

    • Francisco Gonzalez | September 16, 2020 at 12:57 AM | Reply

      When a leader denies truth, such as denying that there is SYSTEMIC RACISM in USA, you learn the leader is not seeing the truth.

    • Destroying democracy is the intent. This is happening in many countries. Research it. Stop being a follower, and find the truth.

    • TWOFAST4U 2015 😂😂😂😂😂 wow what a comment. Now stop watching “Fake News” and go watch Trumps twitter feed. People like you is why Hitler rose to power. Your so deep in the MAGA Cult you have betrayed your own country. Let me guess it’s all “Fake”. 😂

      Vote to Save America Vote Biden Vote Blue 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸. The Blue Shift is coming. Our movement is huge.

    • Very true, but they believe in ancient hobgoblins so they think they have the higher ground.

  14. Never underestimate the power of tribalism over facts.

  15. The “Trump American Dream” You have to be asleep to believe it.

  16. If Trump’s reality is a “delusion of grandeur”, our reality becomes “life in a feudal system”.

    • Very well put

    • Our founders created a government that is supposed to be ruled by the governed through their elected representatives. It is not legally supposed to be a police state where a president orders the execution of those who disagree with him. Trump bragged how he had US marshalls execute a man. Constitutionally, the accused have a presumption of INNOCENCE until proven guilty by 100% of a jury of his peers.

    • @Jake The “police state” you describe is very similar to the “feudal system” I described… i.e., Trump’s “delusion of grandeur”.

    • Charles Migliore | September 15, 2020 at 7:02 PM | Reply

      For losers who dont have a winners plan .. YES .. Remember its PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS .. It never read you any Guarantees .. that’s solely Up to YOU.

    • @Charles Migliore If you don’t expect anything in return you can always pay your taxes to me!

    Corruption at its best! Trump is rotten to the core!

    • Patrick Kingfisher Kennedy | September 15, 2020 at 3:04 PM | Reply

      The old adage holds true: the fish rots from the head down. tRump’s administration is corrupt and complicit in all his criminal deeds.

    • You democrats are so desperate.

    • Decubinese Doggett | September 16, 2020 at 12:47 AM | Reply

      @Elias Ziad Democrats never sent anthrax to newspaper buildings, or opposite political party members or anyone that doesn’t agree with them. Republican members have shot up synogages, churches, driven over people, now make excuses for a president that allowed thousands to die on his watch. Picking and choosing which states received medical equipment according to party lines. You’re party always screws over the citizens.

    • @Elias Ziad No not at all- trump is, and him hiring Michael Caputo is living proof. If you are even an American, and if you don’t know who Caputo is, or what evil that man can create then you had best read up- there are many reports. Going back to 2014 when trump & caputo first started working together, and caputo’s life in Russia working with putin, for starters.

    • @Decubinese Doggett – There were 4 presidential assassins whose politics we know were democrat, who actually assassinated a president. Your info probably came from the msm and you blindly accepted it. IT’S FALSE!!

    As he has no idea what truth is,anything he says will be lies, and Magical thinking.

  19. Trump: ” Ask not what you can do for your country, ask what you can do for me “

    • Sooner Magic Thunder Rules | September 15, 2020 at 10:54 PM | Reply

      Im betting your between 17 & 27 yrs of age. You listen to 2nd hand news and that becomes your reality!! Do the research!

    • @Sooner Magic Thunder Rules, I bet “you are” not even from this country. or you failed “your ” grammar school.

  20. Trump will NOT succeed to “disorder” our American Constitution “LAW!”
