In a new video, Robert Reich breaks down the 10-step plan Donald Trump is using to turn lies into truths and how we can break the cycle.
While many of us are inclined to think he is just a bumbling buffoon. Reich notes that the Wall Street Journal has refused to call Trump’s lies, lies. Their reasoning? He isn’t doing it on purpose, so it doesn’t really count. He isn’t lying intentionally. He’s just an idiot who doesn’t know what he’s talking about. But Trump is actually succeeding at turning his many bogus falsehoods into near truths.
With this 10-step plan, “Trump wins,” Reich explains. But he doesn’t have to. We each need to make sure we know the truth rather than just swallowing whatever lie Trump spouts out next. Don’t let him confuse you. Trust the real facts, not the alternative ones.
Reich also said that “the media should stop mincing words” and needs to “report Trump’s lies as lies.”
