Holy mother this is your Sunday deep dive news read. The Mother of All Explainers! How does the Ol’ Pussy Grabber turn so many otherwise sober rational people to his twisted conspiracy-driven paranoid interpretation of the world? In other words, how does gaslighting work? Why are human beings so vulnerable to it? And, most importantly, how do we resist it? I explain it all right here in six minutes.
Why is the press such a useful idiot when it comes to conservative lies, diversions, conspiracy theories, and other transparent manipulations? Prospect theory and loss aversion hold the answers, but it don’t make it no better. Can one of our pillars of democracy stand up and save our democracy? Please? Does it have to be We The People? I guess so.
What to make of Mueller’s testimony? Will it help? Will it hurt? Will it not matter? How will people react? Well, psychology has something to say about it all… and it’s better news than you think!
Things perked up slightly in the Intelligence Committee than they were in the Judiciary. Go figure. Maybe everyone’s coffee had kicked in.

As the Mueller investigation draws to a close, what is the Ol’ Pussy Grabber likely to do? What are narcissists likely to do as their facade is dismantled? What are the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s options?
Well, that could’ve gone better! In the early days of the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s regime that seemed to be their motto or at least what staffers were muttering under their breath. And, these folks couldn’t take two consecutive steps without dropping their concealed carry and shooting one of […]
To add to the trifecta of stupid from yesterday, Fox News offers us this gem from their very own Dagen McDowell who co-hosts Outnumbered. Apparently, they were trying to work out the intricacies of the Ol’ Pussy Grabber being interviewed by Robert Mueller. You know how it is a felony to […]
They say every little thing we do reflects our inner self. If so, then the things reflected in the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s tweets after Cohen’s offices were raided earlier this week sure don’t paint a pretty picture. In fact they reflect his diagnosis of being an unproductive malignant narcissist.
The more he tries to prove he’s innocent, the more guilty he looks! The Ol’ Pussy Grabber tweets about Flynn and makes his obstruction of justice all the clearer! Classic case of give ’em enough rope…
It is clear that the Ol’ Pussy Grabber is ginning up reasons to dismiss Robert Mueller. But only a narcissist would believe that a six year old dispute over a golf fee would be a conflict of interest. #Resistance
An article from the “New Republic” on the rising authoritarian ways of the Squatter-in-the-White-House and the Repubes noting in particular the attempt to run roughshod over the DoJ this week and the willingness for the Repubes to look the other way.
