Trump trying to change the meaning of The Big Lie...coming to RW media, I'm sure.



Tweet text:

In an unsurprising rhetorical trick, former Pres Trump suggests switching/confusing the meaning of “the big lie” from its current use (characterizing his disinfo campaign to undermine trust on the election) to the false claims of that same campaign. Like his “fake news” trick.

While @realDonaldTrump is still banned from @Facebook and @Twitter he's still issuing tweet-length statements, including this one just now.

1. Frank Luntz was really brilliant in his manipulation of language.

Framing the issue.
He taught them well.

3. Orwellian. He'll / They'll springboard right off of it and make it their own.

They’ll change the meaning and regular media will be forced to adjust their language.

More poison from the RW. That’s all we can and should expect.

4. He similarly tried to appropriate "fake news". You can fool some of the people all of the time.

6. Tried?

I think he completely appropriated it. The term is meaningless now after 4+ years of him using it.

5. Isn't it customary to make things like this a "Proclamation"?

Hear Ye, Hear Ye! The Massive Orange Ass hereby proclaims that, henceforth and to wit, anyone referring to him as "The Massive Orange Ass" shall be deemed an enema of the state!

I wonder if the letters F O mean anything to him?
