It's confusing, yes. But the Dems have made their name doing exactly that... confusing people with lies. In fact, they lie about the lie about the lie. It goes something like this... Some democrat tells a bald-faced lie and gets caught... they then claim they "misspoke" and when that doesn't work, they claim a right wing conspiracy is out to get them. When that fails, they concoct another lie to blame the original lie on the right and then lie about the lie. And if they need to lie about the lie about the lie... no problem, they can do that too! Sometimes, the lies contradict one another. When that happens, they might claim the original lie was in fact a "white lie" but that's not their fault because Republicans "misled" them. The current lie, we are assured, is not a lie. When the lie is so big and unavoidable and has serious legal consequences like the possibility of a felony and prison time, they may admit they "unknowingly lied" and call in some political favors to get a slap on the wrist over something your or I would rot in jail for. Recently, Democrats have pioneered a new type of lying known as the "cluster lie"; which is a 'bunker-buster' type of lying... they simply go out there and tell so many lies so quickly that no one can keep track. Some of the lies are caught but due to the veracity and intensity, some of the lies will stick. These have been particularly effective against the slow-moving establishment RINO. What makes these lies so dangerous is the number of low-information voters out there who don't ever realize they are being lied to. They trust that someone important on TV is going to tell the truth. Ellen tells the truth... Oprah tells the truth... Whoopi tells the truth... So it stands to reason (I'm speaking for the low-info voter here), if you're important you'll always tell the truth. They've gotten to the point of having so many people invested in their lies and depending on them, really, that now it is difficult to try and expose the lies. After all, if everything these "important people on TV" are saying is a lie, that means everything you've been believing in all this time is a lie as well. People can't face that they have been duped and suckered, it's the hardest thing in the world to do. So they keep on defending the liars.
