Yesterday, I wrote elsewhere that I thought I'd figured out why Trump hasn't said a word about the Austin bombings and deaths. It wasn't just that the first two victims were black, I wrote -- but also, he didn't know the color of the bomber. As a result, he wasn't sure if the person was a terrorist or just someone he could excuse as mentally disturbed.
Well, as you might imagine, a diehard Trump acolyte on social media took offense at this and wrote me a snarky message to show how wrong I was, and sent me the link to an article which proved (!!) I was wrong (no doubt a damn libtard, I'm sure...), because it showed Trump talking about the bombings. "Here are the words he said," she wrote to me, sashaying around as she typed, it seemed.
And God love her, because if anything could have not only proven my point, but even more so -- proven the utter emptiness of diehard Trump acolytes who have given up to concept of thought in place of mindless hero worship and don't see reality but instead have created a world of delusion.
The article she sent me not only didn't have a quote from Trump...it didn't even have one single reference to Trump!
But to a diehard Trump acolyte, that didn't matter. It was about the bombings, and she apparently just filled in all the totally blank spaces.
The concept of "Fan fiction" has taken on new meaning...
