There is absolute proof that Donald Trump said he was FOR the Iraq War in 2002:
“Are you for invading Iraq?” Howard Stern asked him, and Trump answered, “Yeah, I guess so.”
No matter how you interpret “Yeah, I guess is so…” – it definitely doesn’t mean “NO.”
But in the first Clinton/Trump debate September 26, 2016, (and many times before that) he categorically denied it.
He Tweeted climate change was “created” by and the Chinese in this tweet:
The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.

But he categorically denied it.
It went on and on like that in the debate and has gone on and on like that throughout his campaign.
And he gets more and more popular.
How is that even possible?
This clip from “Lenny” starring Dustin Hoffman (directed by Bob Fosse – and one of the great movies of the 1970s) perfectly encapsulates Trump’s strategy of denying no matter the proof and his followers acceptance of the denial as fact – because they WANT to believe him:
I haven’t been blogging regularly for a while as I’ve working on a book and upcoming podcast about the history of Manka Bros. Studios.
I hope starting in the next couple of weeks I can balance both projects and get back to writing about the business of media.
