Reince Priebus: 'Every single thing' Trump does is 'factual' and 80 percent of Americans approve

Source: Raw Story

Incoming White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus asserted over the weekend that every single thing President-elect Donald Trump has done has been factual and is supported by 80 percent of Americans.

-snip-

The Chinese ripped a drone out of the water, the Trump aide continued. President-elect said this is an unprecedented act, totally inappropriate. He didnt quite use those words, but thats essentially what he said in a tweet.

According to Priebus, the U.S. military should not want that drone back after it had been handled by the Chinese government.

I think every single thing hes done has been factual and has been in line with where 80 percent of the American people are, Priebus declared.

Just when you think they can't get any more delusional...

And in case anyone's wondering whered Priebus came up with that insane idea that 80% of the American people support what Trump does...

That's supposedly Putin's approval rating in Russia. Which we can assume Trump is jealous of.

So now Trump's top advisors are floating the insane idea that Trump also has 80% support here.

And then this pin head goes on a whatever program of hate and fear called murdick news, and say that if the "election was rigged" prove it" Okay dip **** lets start with Maine and count all the ballots, and then go down the east coast, then through the Midwest and then the west and the Pacific , the territories lets have a f****ng recount of all of the ballots using a eyes and hands and NOT machines and lets just see how 65 million and 62 million work out for this tin foil hat fascist.

While the media will not be saying okay dumb s*** lets have a total recount using people and eyes, nope, they will not challenge this lunatic or his and there lunatic serial predator "guy" , they will not say that

20. fucking Fox news fodder

The propaganda channel has befuddled their audience to thinking they're the only Americans. Fox convinced their viewers that they are "patriotic". Expanded that to the ONLY patriots, exclude all democrats. Pushing the meme further; 80 percent of AMERICANS per a FOX NEWS poll. Later, dispense with bothering to name the source and presto-change-o after a decade ipso facto:
ONLY FOX NEWS viewers comprise Americans. All else are un-American.

It stops any further reverse engineering by the Chinese (they will have done some already).

Not wanting it back is just stupid.

Not wanting it back after demanding it back is double stupid.

Not wanting it back after demanding it back and saying the taking was "unpresidented" is triple stupid.

29. don't dismiss this dangerous stuff, stop saying "delusional" and substitute "creative"

little annoys me more than having otherwise aware liberals acting like this is "LULZ they're so ignorant of the Truth", cracking wise, and laughing it away, when they straight up fucking tell us their plans
yes, these assholes and criminals are spewing things that are demonstrably false
but
they have ALL the power now, and that is a LOT of power, enough power to change certain aspects of reality, or at least long-term perceptions thereof on a very wide scale

truth is not some omnipotent entity that will come riding forth in self-evident glory all on its own
history is not simply a record of past events, it is also what we are living right now and what our descendants will live in centuries hence
winners write history, and right now they are the winners, and they are well-positioned to alter the records of reality

think for a minute
instead of shouting "they're so wrong" try to imagine what the world will have to be like for them to be correct, or at least seen as such
that is what keeps me up at night

39. THIS

At this point, the only way the overt in-your-face propaganda can be stopped is if the "media" (in quotes because they are complicit) would cease reporting what they say. It really shouldn't be hard because self-same "media" refused to report on much of anything our current President did for the past 8 years that wasn't redefined by the GOP, let alone what any Democrat proposed.

Yet, Hitler explained all his plans in Mein Kampf. No mystery at all in what he did as it was all explained clearly. But you had to read it. There are common truths, which even a sane person does not believe. If you are color blind is the sky blue? Maybe you say it is, but only because everyone else says it is. The power of the majority. We are so bombarded by lies that the relatives of those who didn't read Mein Kampf are now believing people like President Elect Tweeter and the sordid band of liars he has accumulated.

The same people that put him in office, write the paychecks for the M$M media bots.

He can do whatever he wants for the next 4 years, he knows that and will say whatever. Trump said bombastic, unfucking -believable things during the presidential run. He told his 2nd amendment folks they should take care of HRC (more than once). He told a crowd of followers he could MURDER someone with a gun right in the middle of the crowd and they would cheer and they did cheer!

What scares me the most is Trump will be legally immune from whatever he does, nobody is going to impeach him. We only do that to (D)s not (R)s.

35. Two sub-categories of propaganda

1. You concoct it, disperse it to sway or fix perceptions, but don't actually believe it to be factual.
2. You concoct it, disperse it to sway or fix perceptions, but in the process of doing so accept it as absolute truth.

"You" being the propagandist.

The second one is by far the most dangerous, and it's what we are now seeing.

41. It looks like Reince Priebus uses "80 percent" whenever he needs a percentage.

It looks like Reince Priebus uses "80 percent" whenever he needs a percentage.

Regarding Trump, "Everything single thing he's done has been factual, and has been inline with where 80 percent of the American people are."
— Reince Priebus on 18th December 2016 on Fox News

He famously stated, incorrectly, regarding the Clinton Foundation:
"The fact is" the Clinton Foundation has "got about 80 percent in overhead and 20 percent of the money is actually getting into the places it should."
— Reince Priebus on 23rd August 2016 on "The Mike Gallagher Show"

Regarding the April 12 meeting of minds at the Republican National Committee headquarters, Priebus gave assurances that Ryan and Trump "agree on far more than they disagree."

"They agree on various agenda items," Priebus said. "Paul Ryan's agenda, agree on the Supreme Court. They agree on the platform of the Republican Party. They agree on abortion. I think you've got about 80 percent overlap."
— Reince Priebus on 15th May 2016 on "Face the Nation"

"I would say where we're at is kind of like when my wife asks me about a project at home and says, How you doing? And I say, well you know I'm 80 percent done, and I've got 80 percent to go,"
— Reince Priebus on 5th November 2014 on "Morning Joe"

"Our 80 percent friend is not our 20 percent enemy."
— Reince Priebus on 18th March 2013 in The Washington Post

Trump hasn’t actually done anything yet, and his opponents are acting as if the sky has fallen. They are playing into his hands: if you begin with constant outrage, there’s no place to go when something truly outrageous happens.

Are we in danger of falling into this trap?
