During the T-Rump’s gibberish-talk after his social media conference yesterday:

In this current time-frame, we’re most-likely in what’s called a ‘watershed‘ event: ‘Watershed is a geographical term, originally. The area that drains into a single river is the watershed for that river. Watershed can also mean a ridge, like that formed by a chain of mountains, which sends water to two different rivers on either side. It’s from this meaning that watershed came to mean a turning point or dividing line in social life.’
If the T-Rump is re-elected next year (which I have a nauseous tingle in my gut he could/will), the US, and the entire planet, is fucked beyond imagination — even so, the longer this scenario continues, day-by-day, is a strike against humanity, and our 247-year-old system.
Decent summary of the latest of T-Rump ass-wiping/gaslighting — per Vox this afternoon:
President Donald Trump spoke to and took questions from the media for about 30 minutes on Friday morning across a range of topics. He lied about just about all of them.
Trump took credit for legislation that was actually signed into law by President Barack Obama.
Providing no evidence, he dismissed reporting that reflects poorly upon his administration as the result of reporters fabricating sources.
He pushed baseless conspiracy theories about social media allegedly companies discriminating against conservatives.
And that was just the beginning.
Trump’s helicopter-side news conference, which he held while leaving the White House for a trip to Wisconsin and Ohio, was a master class in gaslighting.
The president took questions from a range of reporters, but he afforded them no opportunities to ask follow-ups.
Instead, he took one question at a time — answering it on his own terms or completely changing the topic as he saw fit — before moving on to the next.
It illustrated how Trump carefully manages the settings in which he makes himself available to reporters so he can control his message, no matter how divorced from reality it may be.
Nexus of the problem — how to process and document constant lying devoid of care, or remorse?
