David Waldman sticks to paleo-facts in the post-factual world:
Milo Yiannopoulos doubledefines doublespeak. Bridgegate gets a flip, twist, and is re-projected. White nationalists get normalized in the US, just like they have been in Europe. Our Incoming national security adviser owns his own brand of facts. With all the lies in the chaos how can people find the big lies? A future president feeds a big lie to the media, and they gobble it up. They do figure it out, long after it is too late. The rot continues when we let our friends carry lies.
In the fog of lies, things are still getting done. Bad things. Jefferson Beauregard Sessions, III is in charge of handling cases of discrimination and inequity. This Islamophobic, anti-Semite gets national security. And another nightmare is hired! Meanwhile Ivanka got to preview her latest jewelry line to the Japanese Prime Minister.
