PR Battle

Every time we say “let me tell you what _________ did” we are reinforcing their narrative.

Always seize the subject when responding. My favorite response to right-wingers is “blah, blah, blah, But I don’t understand why that’s our government’s response to Putin and Russia paying $100,000 to kill an American in Afghanistan?”

It’s a PR battle, PR battles are fought in the mind. Trump knows that, that’s why an empty suit with no experience convinced people he was presidential and slithered into office. It’s the magic of TV and branding.

Long-winded, academic conversations to convert people are not enough. We have to give them only enough logical reasons to make an emotional decision to “buy”.

But whatever you do...don’t give him free publicity. Remember the mistakes of the media in 2016. But fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice, you don’t want to fuck with the media you moron. We are the ones to blame for creating you.
