I have listened to and read that Trump followers in the Congress and on Fox News blame Woodward, seemingly not Trump, for not informing the public about Trump's comments and how serious the covid was, but would any Trump follower actually believed? Trump is still going out without masks and social distancing and his followers are doing the same even after learning the truth from Trump's own mouth. I know Trumpsters do not like to believe anything bad about their leader, but really, Woodward is guilty but not Trump? Trump would just have said it was all fake news and Trumpsters would have agreed and believed.

In my opinion, Woodward made a tactical error in this tape business. Woodward should have simply released the book as a book and not play or even mention the tapes. Nixon - er sorry - Trump would have denied saying any of those damaging things and made a major fuss about it. Then Woodward a week later could let the denials build and only then would he play the tapes. This would make Trump look like even more of a liar.

Question, with over 18,000 lies since he took office, how could Trump look anymore like a liar.

With all due respect, this thread should not even exist. You are asking a question based on a Trump nonsensical talking point. Trump's point was not even built around who would or would not believe Woodward. It is built around the utterly insane notion that Woodward had somewhere to go with what he knew in February or March. What "authority" was Woodward to go too. He is not employed in the sense that would allow him to be a Whistleblower.

Woodward is a journalist. His tools are his journalistic instincts, his investigative journalism skills and his writing skills. He does his work, completes it and publishes. THAT is it and that is all anybody should expect of a journalist.

That would be one way to do it...
At this time... any sane people don't and should not believe anything that comes out of the mouth of Trump or Republicans Politicians, and certainly nothing that comes out of the mouth of a Trump supporter. These ignorant Trump Supporter people would still try to find an excuse to protect their Cult Leader!!!

The best thing out of all of this is, NO ONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND, SHOULD NEVER AGAIN BELIVE ANYTHING THAT COME OUT OF RIGHT WING REPUBLICAN'S MOUTH. I don't care if they are white, black, brown or any other ....
Anyone dumb enough to support anything Republican only expose themselves as people who don't know American Democracy, Don't Respect American Democracy, they "ALL" worship money and a great many care about promoting racism. Many of the non white Republicans are so desperate to be accepted by right winger white people as their self measure... until they make fools of themselves.

Look at the mass of dummies still going to Trump Rallies without mask, no social distancing and hooping and hollering like a bunch of fools. These are the same types of mentality as the type of people who catered to Hitler.

Everyone who wrote a book about Trump have all said the same things... That Trump is a meglomaniac NUTCASE... who is EVIL....

This is all President Woodward's fault.

What they believe in their heart of hearts is irrelevant. What they do is what matters.

And what they do is attempt to gaslight things that reflect negatively against Trump out of apparent existence. If even they cannot think of a lie that doesn't sound too stupid to be told, they just claim they don't care.

An example of the latter would be Trump admitting on tape to lying and denying about COVID, thereby getting nearly 200,000 Americans killed. "So what?", they say, "letting nearly 200,000 Americans die needlessly is how you avoid panic", they fart out.





You have to understand that there is one and only one principle underlying Trumpism: **** everyone and everything that is not pro-Trump. That's it.

Yeah, Trump has lied thousands of more times than Nixon, but Nixon was caught lying when the Repub party valued honesty and followed the principles that had defined their party for decades.

Since Trump, they've become a party of personality who not only remain silent after every display of racism, disrespect of our servicemen/women, attraction to despots, handling of a virus killing hundreds of thousands of Americans and why? It's because Trump is a reflection of the Repubs who've supported Trump for the last four years will vote for him in November. Trump is just the symptom, if he loses, the current Repubs will just replace him with someone just like him or worst...

Nope, they even discount what their Leader said, the sign of a true cult.

You have a good point. I guess it would be like a period at the end of the sentence. Problem is we know the sentence will get a lot lengthier.
