Donald Trump, our conspiracy theorist-in-chief.

Donald Trump has promoted conspiracy theories before, most notably beginning his political career by pumping up the racist birther conspiracy theory about Barack Obama in 2011.

During the 2016 campaign, he baselessly suggested that the father of his primary rival, Sen. Ted Cruz, was somehow involved in the assassination of JFK. This didn’t stop Cruz from sucking up to Trump after the election.

This time, however, the President’s conspiracy theory comes less than two weeks after a news report revealed an FBI intelligence bulletin from the bureau’s Phoenix, Arizona office (and obtained by Yahoo News) warning that “conspiracy theory-driven domestic extremists” should be considered as potential terrorist threats.

The report, dated May 30, 2019, according to Yahoo, says that “social media has enabled promoters of conspiracy theories to produce and share greater volumes of material via online platforms that larger audiences of consumers can quickly and easily access.”

By that standard, the President of the United States has become one of the most powerful forces for promoting misinformation today.

Of course Trump is also a prolific liar as recently reported by the Washington Post

President Trump’s proclivity for spouting exaggerated numbers, unwarranted boasts and outright falsehoods has continued at a remarkable pace. As of Aug. 5, his 928th day in office, he had made 12,019 false or misleading claims, according to the Fact Checker’s database that analyzes, categorizes and tracks every suspect statement the president has uttered.

Trump crossed the 10,000 mark on April 26, and he has been averaging about 20 fishy claims a day since then. From the start of his presidency, he has averaged about 13 such claims a day.

Yeah, it’s not just that this guy lies like a drunk husband caught sneaking into his house smelling of booze and strawberry lip gloss, with stripper glitter all over his underwear, it’s that he also embraces every wackadoodle conspiracy theory that reinforces his bizarro view of reality. 

Trump has used his platform to convince people that Hillary Clinton was the one who really benefited from Russian interference, that the media cannot be trusted, and that his tarriffs agaisnt China are acually working.

Literally every single thing that comes out of this orange-tinted buffoon’s mouth is a lie, an exaggeration, or simply wishful thinking. 

And the voting public needs to be reminded of that at every opportunity.

      We aren’t tolerating him using our money to enrich himself, it is Congress that is letting him get away with it by not STOPPING HIM and his crooked, criminal family
      =============================================================

      The documents reveal that American taxpayers in 2017 had to foot a $5,700 bill to cover Secret Service expenses at the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Vancouver while Donald Trump Jr. was staying there during a hunting trip to Canada.
      This is on top of the $20,000 that the Secret Service spent at the Vancouver Trump hotel when the Trump family attended its grand opening in early 2017, just after the president was inaugurated.

      Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) tells Politico that American taxpayers should not tolerate the president using his office to enrich himself.

    “I got it approved. Veterans Choice,” Trump said while speaking in Pennsylvania this week. He has previously claimed that politicians “have been trying to pass these things for 45 years.”

    “the Veterans Choice legislation was first passed and signed into law under President Barack Obama in 2014.”

    ““He is an unstoppable force of fabrication”

    Michael Flynn and George Papadopoulos, two former Trump foreign policy aides who both agreed in late 2017 to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, appear to have found some new allies:
    QAnon conspiracy theorists.
    Granville denied that the Q on the flag is a deliberate QAnon reference. He said the stars refer to Flynn’s prior status as a three-star general. “It does look like Q, but there is no reference to QAnon anywhere on that site,”
    He acknowledged that he personally espouses QAnon views. “Do I think it’s good for America? Absolutely,” “Do I think it’s a conspiracy theory? I doubt that.”

    “I am with anybody who is with the United States of America, any digital solider, any patriot, any average American who is doing their part to support the president of the United States,”

    The site for the event says that a “majority of proceeds” from it—registration prices range from $49 to $2,500 for an “Ultra VIP” pass—will go to Flynn’s defense fund. “General Mike Flynn is a true American hero fighting the deep state who put everything on the line for God and Country,” the site says. Flynn’s lawyer, Sidney Powell, signed off on the event, according to Granville.
