Why does Donald Trump keep saying, "No collusion....No collusion"?

Because there is "collusion".

Because he believes if he can convince his supporters that he is not guilty of "collusion", then he is not guilty of any other crimes.

It's sort of like the bank robber that keeps saying that he did not "jaywalk" across the street to rob the bank. "No jaywalking....No jaywalking".

1. I think it is more like the bank robber

Who brags that he didn't kill anyone in the bank

No murder
No murder
No murder

15. He is the worst guilty person ever

He is always confessing to his crimes by his excessive denials. As a parent, I have to say he reminds me of a young child who hasn't learned how to deceive adults convincingly. In the case of collusion, he has taken his redundancy technique to the extreme and it is only effective to the really dumb and brainwashed.

Not much else in his bag of tricks.

4. What part of "conservativism" makes sense?

It is called "crazy" because it is irrational and dysfunctional.

6. Defining the issue. The lazy press has helped him.

There are three aspects of the Mueller probe:
Conspiracy (yes collusion is a legal term as part of that)
Obstruction of justice
Money laundering

Trump wants it to just be about collusion (there was collusion) so if it’s just stuff like obstructing justice and money laundering he can say “SEE! TOLD YA SO!”

9. And don't look at my finances, and pay no attention to Saudi money...

and on and on...

If he can keep the focus on collusion, people think he's only committed one crime, rather than hundreds.

7. Repeat a lie enough and people will believe it

Especially people who really don't follow politics that closely. They will just internalize the lie because they have heard it every day.

8. If you repeat a lie often enough, it often becomes the truth.

It's a tactic the republicans have long been using. It's why people continue to believe their bullshit. They're doing the same thing with the "socialism" shit they're spewing.

12. Con men and crooks often use this tactic

Repeat the lie enough , and they will believe it. This is a main lie, and want he wants them to believe the most, so it shows he did collude, but in reality they all conspired with putin to do this , and that's what he's so scared of being exposed, and why he repeats it so much. That's also one of his tells, he repeats the lies a lot. Mexico would pay for the wall. I'll give you better lower costing health care, I won't touch Medicare Medicaid or Social Security, then did the opposite. He's just like ponzi schemers, and has an excuse for everything, and even admitted on tv once he'd just have an excuse if something came out he didn't like.

16. Seeding the ground

Like when a gang of police officers is whomping the holy hell out of some luckless suspect, one of them keeps hollering, "Stop resisting! Stop resisting!"
