Washington DC – With the midterms looming ever closer, Republicans are looking like they will lose the House of Representatives to Democrats. *The Economist gives Democrats a 3 in 4 chance to win the lower house. And that is causing President Trump to raise his rhetoric to new heights. Today President Trump called history, the study of past events, as “the enemy of the people.”
The commander-in-chief typically reserves the term “the enemy of the people” for the free press. He has a history of calling journalists “crooked,” “corrupt,” and “totally not understanding the love a father has for his sexy daughter.” His new strategy seems to be linking the “fake free press” with “historical lies” and historians who are “scum.”
A recent survey shows 48% of Republicans agree the free press is the enemy of the people. A new study out this morning reveals 67% of Republicans will believe whatever President Trump is currently saying, even when it contradicts what he said minutes before. “Trump said we’ve always been at war with Eurasia, and that’s good enough for me,” stated Trump super-fan Andrew Canard. “I never was good at history. And now that stupid subject doesn’t matter no more.”
Trump App Inc brought us classic apps like I’m not the liar, you’re the liar! and Crooked Hillary’s Benghazi Emails. They are releasing a new product — Doublethink is Doubleplusgood. The new app will notify users how to think about the ever changing Trumpian past. For example, this morning Doublethink is Doubleplusgood informed its loyal fans that slavery was an unpaid internship and the Trail Of Tears was a classic rock band from the 1970s.Political scholars aren’t sure where Trump’s list of Who is the enemy of the people? going to end. Many believe math is going to be the next victim. After all, isn’t 2+2=5?
