This gem gets right to the heart of "Gaslighting."

The twist is that these media groups seem to be doing it to themselves.

For those unfamiliar with the term, per wikipedia.com:

"Gaslighting is a form of manipulation that seeks to sow seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or members of a group, hoping to make targets question their own memory, perception, and sanity. Using persistent denial, misdirection, contradiction, and lying, it attempts to destabilize the target and delegitimize the target's belief.

Instances may range from the denial by an abuser that previous abusive incidents ever occurred up to the staging of bizarre events by the abuser with the intention of disorienting the victim. The term owes its origin to a 1938 play Gas Light and its 1944 film adaptation. It has been used in clinical and research literature, as well as in political commentary."

The term originates from the 1938 stage play Gas Light in which a woman's perception of reality is destroyed.

Hey look, Goebbel's, another of Trump's hero's and one of his favourite saying, that's why he made up the term "fake news", to hide the reality of what he is, that's why another of Trump's hero's did so well, you know Adolf, Goebbel's boyfriend.

One thing is going to be fun though, when the truth about Trump comes out is seeing how quick you fucks start pretending you weren't hissing an'a sucking with Chump. The sheer amount of deleted posts, blogs, articles, etc will probably free up tetrabytes and double net speeds on servers worldwide.

Trump didn't make up the term "fake news" you silly billy. CNN made it up to discredit small youtubers and bloggers who were gaining popularity and sucking ad revenue from the Government Approved Networks. The term just happened to reverse and gain traction, backfiring against the crony networks.

Hi Trump, you've forgotten again haven't you? M

PS, To Trumpton's handlers,

1, give him a timeline of reality

2, tell him which "facts" were his

and

3, show him the difference between reality and fiction (You know what he dreams up and what actually happened)

PPS, Just so you know, I'm always happy to take the piss out of fools….

and those they elect!
