The Orange Cheeto-in-Chief showing he is a genius again, in his 4th July speech says that America is an exceptional country, probably the most exceptional country in the world.

Yes it's so exceptional that it apparently had aeroplanes and airports 134 years before they were invented

Yes but he blamed it on the teleprompters. Always someone else for this narcissist.

As for the latest Trump thing (you can't make this stuff up): Trump today announced he won't produce his tax returns because they are "under audit". This must mean that the U.S. has the most inefficient I.R.S. imaginable, since two years ago, he told the same story. ... and I do mean "story" !
https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/b...e-election?amp

"Many liberals associate positive emotions with empirical facts and reason, which is why their intentional system is triggered into doing fact-checking on news stories. Trump voters mostly do not have such positive emotions around the truth, and believe in Trump’s authenticity on a gut level regardless of the facts. This difference is not well recognized by the mainstream media, who treat their audience as rational thinkers and present information in a language that communicates well to liberals, but not to Trump voters.

To get more conservatives to turn on the intentional system when evaluating political discourse we need to speak to emotions and intuitions—the autopilot system, in other words. We have to get folks to associate positive emotions with the truth first and foremost, before anything else.

To do so, we should understand where these people are coming from and what they care about, validate their emotions and concerns, and only then show, using emotional language, the harm people suffer when they believe in lies. For instance, for those who care about safety and security, we can highlight how it’s important for them to defend themselves against being swindled into taking actions that make the world more dangerous. Those concerned with liberty and independence would be moved by emotional language targeted toward keeping themselves free from being used and manipulated. For those focused on family values, we may speak about trust being abused.

These are strong terms that have deep emotional resonance. Many may be uncomfortable with using such tactics of emotional appeals. We have to remember the end goal of helping people orient toward the truth. This is a case where ends do justify the means. We need to be emotional to help people grow more rational—to make sure that while truth lost the battle, it will win the war."

This article seems to hit at some facts why nonsense is believable to many through the emotional side and not the logical side of their brain.

The "logical" side of the brain has no comfort to offer: the world is what it is: evil sometimes dominates: we all pass into non-existence in time.
How much more lovable is the concept that someday, there is a "heaven" where we will be reunited with our loved ones and evil will not exist.
C'mon....ever have a discussion with a "believer" suggesting it ain't so?
Trump has promised some small (to many of us, but large to believers) things that keep them on his side. I'd say persuading them that this man should not be POTUS would be hopeless.
