46. Agreed. But what he actually said, when Gov Bullock told Dr. Fauci about the lack of tests,

is 'I haven't heard that'.

But he said that right after he heard that, from Gov. Bullock's own lips. Said it in response to hearing it from Bullock, that's how we can tell he heard it.

So I'm not quibbling semantically with you about 'seen' vs 'heard', your point's valid either way.

Just pointing out a reality denying verbal tactic from dRump and his nazi buddies, that they've been deploying a lot more recently: when you hear something that shows just how sucky you are, something that really makes you look bad, hurts your cause, just say 'I haven't heard that', and you've categorically addressed it, because you denied it, said it's not true, so the discussion's over.

Dismiss it by claiming you haven't heard it, though you just heard it. That allows you to then never follow up on it. You're telling the person who delivered the unwanted knowledge to you that you aren't even going to put it into your memory banks, you find the statement of fact false, so you're not letting it even enter your mind.


I'd like to see the reporters and opposing politicians counter his cheap rhetorical 3 card monty con by saying, 'No, you JUST heard it. So you HAVE heard it, a second ago. Now that you HAVE heard it, what are you going to do about it?'
