Trump Also Trying to Rig Inauguration Turnout: Speaking to his Believers, Press Secretary Says Empty Spaces Weren't Empty

[who is he talking to?] Believers Create their Own Deceivers. Trump is looking for suckers; people who want to be deceived and who want to be dominated by him & feel necessary to his domination. In being dominated they feel important [egos elevated] because his domination depends on them. Without them where would he be? "The mind which believes is always vulnerable & always provides an opportunity to be exploited." Racism white supremacy is psychopathic degeneracy, a virus in the mind. [MORE] It is based on make believe nonsense; an imaginary hierarchy. Racists might believe damn near anything so long as it satisfies their appetite.

Dr. Blynd explains in FUNKTIONARYbeliever - one who accepts that which has no basis in reality. 2) a person who enjoys being deceived. A believer does not seek—just accepts theologies and/or ideologies. 3) one who is addicted to vanity and/or chained to convention with conviction. 4) one who lives in a cloud of illusions, confounded by language and its deceptions. Believers are people who make their lives subjective slaves to a mere belief—engineered my limited and fragmented understanding and fostered by erroneous conclusions based solely on effects and appearances. A true believer would rather believe in something and be wrong than not believe in it and be right. [MORE]

Like the Moon, No One Was There. [This overhead shot was taken shortly before Trump’s swearing-in ceremony. CREDIT: ABC News] From [HERE] In a surreal turn, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer tonight denied reality, lashed out at the press for its supposed “shameful and wrong” coverage of the size of the crowd that attended President Trump’s January 20 inaugural festivities, instructed the White House press corps on what they “should be writing and covering,” declared that the administration intended to “hold the press accountable,” and left the briefing room without taking questions.

Spicer said that “this was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period -- both in person and around the globe.” He is lying.

In remarks to the CIA earlier in the day, Trump falsely claimed it “looked like a million, million and a half people” attended his inauguration. An estimated 1.8 million attended President Obama’s 2008 inauguration, while The Washington Post reports Trump's crowd was "somewhere closer to 600,000."

Spicer also went after a Time magazine journalist for a mistake he made in a tweet about a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. that sits in the Oval Office.

In the latest sign that the Trump administration plans to wage war on reality, Spicer refused to accept that attendance for Trump’s inauguration was smaller than for President Obama’s in 2009.

He blamed “floor coverings [that] were used to protect the grass on the mall” for making it look like there was lots of empty space. In fact, there was just lots of empty space.

The official job of the White House press secretary now consists of blatantly lying to the press about matters great and small, and attacking them when they step out of line.

This was a dominance display from a White House that clearly has no regard for the media’s role in the democratic process. Trump’s administration hates reporters who provide critical coverage and wants to crush them.

The administration will seek to lift up openly sycophantic news organizations while crowding out and delegitimizing responsible ones. His media supporters’ calls to deny critical outlets “the privilege” of covering Trump seem to be in sight.
