This is how Trump's latest tweets are gaslighting America

[From Wikipedia]
"Gaslighting" is a form of manipulation that seeks to sow seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or in members of a targeted group, hoping to make them question their own memory, perception, and sanity.
Using persistent denial, misdirection, contradiction, and lying, it attempts to destabilize the target and delegitimize the target's belief.
Sociopaths and narcissists frequently use gaslighting tactics.

THIS IS HOW TRUMP'S LATEST TWEETS ARE GASLIGHTING AMERICA

Raw Story
May 23, 2018

President Donald Trump over the past 18 hours or so has been pounding out tweets and making remarks to the press that are filled with lies.
How is this different from any day of the week that ends with "y" you ask?
Here's how:

Trump is insisting that under President Barack Obama's direction, the FBI and possibly other federal agencies, embedded at least one if not more spies into his presidential campaign with the specific purpose of working to help Hillary Clinton win.

There is exactly zero evidence to support these lies.
Trump doesn't even attempt to offer any, aside from "quoting" various Fox News personalities.
He also quotes former United States Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, the man whose new book says Russia's efforts swayed the election to Trump.
{Probably not the source you want to go to if you're Trump)


[snip]

Trump is gaslighting the American people...He's lying, constantly
But those lies become facts in everyone's mind - yours and mine included - unless we wholly discredit every word he utters, every tweet he posts.
And that's just too hard for most.

Trump Angers Scotland Ahead of Visit by Banning National Drink

The Daily Beast
May 10, 2018


EDINBURGH, Scotland -- Donald Trump might well be making diplomatic strides in North Korea, but he's risked destroying relations with Scotland ahead of his expected visit to the country by banning it's iconic soft drink, Irn-Bru.

The luminous drink - famously more popular in Scotland than Coca-Cola - has been banned from Trump's luxury golf course over fears that it's almost radioactively orange color could ruin the fancy carpets.

"We can't have it staining when to replace the ballroom carpet would be 500,000 pounds
($678,800) alone," said Trump Turnberry General Manager Ralph Porciani, according to a local newspaper.

Irn-Bru is an intensely sweet soft drink with a flavor that's almost impossible to describe.
It's as much a national icon as whiskey or haggis, and Trump's ban on it is being treated as an attack on the very essence of being Scottish, say a number of furious Scots.

One of the country's leading newspapers, "The Scotsman,' described the decision as
"an unfortunate stain on Trump's reputation" and in a justifiably angry editorial wrote,
"The resort may have ballroom carpets to protect but surely the stain on Trump's reputation from this ill-conceived decision is much, much worse."

[From The Daily Beast article]

Despite Trump's mother hailing from Scotland, he was widely unpopular in the country even before he became president..He has two golf courses here and was strongly criticized for the way he treated local residents while building his first, near Aberdeen in the north of the country.

In an eerie precursor to his later policies, he built a wall around a local resident's house to block it from view and sent the resident a bill, then cut off water from the 92-year-old resident's home, and has delivered only a fraction of the $1 billion investment and 6,000 jobs he promised to the area.
