Regarding this whole "3-5 million illegal votes cast" nonsense: it's yet another page out of Orwell's playbook. Doesn't matter if there's no evidence. Doesn't matter if Trump himself and every one of his lackeys knows it to be a lie. He knows that his die-hard supporters will accept it as fact anyway, and he knows that it will sow enough doubt to remain a talking point. He doesn't actually believe it himself, but repeating it serves his purposes well.

He's now threatening to invade Chicago.

Seriously.

I don't mind Orwell, but the constant mentioning of him whenever anything happens has become so cliched over the years.

That means there would be a resistance to him, no? Picking a fight with his own population won't end well for him.

No one in Chicago voted for him.

I anticipate an anti-government guerrilla force then - hypothetically.

Combatting cliches is definitely our most urgent priority. Damn, you're tiring.

Faaaaaaaaaaaaaantastic .

So much for that "Oh, he was just exaggerating/he didn't really mean it" bullshit Trump supporters here kept insisting.

Please, dear God, please, please, please, PLEASE let this asshole be impeached as soon as humanly possible. Please.

I have way too many friends and family in Chicago. This honestly has me really scared.

If he's this willing to attack a city that voted against him, what will he try in California and New York?

He'll come out and say he was talking of federal aid

Which he probably was, but he's a master at generating controversy

He's not nuking Chicago, jeez.

If he even does anything at all, he's going to send in DOJ and FBI agents to stir up shit, waste everyone's time and money and do nothing to address the complex socioeconomic issues of the city.

I didn't suggest it was an urgent priority, it's an observation. Damn, you're tiring.

I usually try to avoid comparing real life political figures to 1984, Hitler, et cetera, because it's typically rather exaggerated (though I have a soft spot for Voldemort comparisons, of course). But the sort of lax attitude towards the truth that the Trump Administration has - the blatant lying and the euphemistic language like "alternative facts" - carries a distinctively 1984ish tone in a way I've never certainly experienced before in the US.

things really have a nice old-fashioned "may 1914" feel to them right now, don't they? #maga

He said he would send in the Feds "to stop the murder."

Surely not never; what about the famous White House official's remark during Peak Bush that 'we are an empire now and we create our own reality'.
