“Trump wants to call Elizabeth Warren ‘Pocahontas’ because he’s a racist, wants to appeal to racists, and his cult-like following so ignores everything bad he does that they think that had she lied — she didn’t — this (this!) would be worse than anything Trump has done. Process that.
“If you’re online trying to convince a Trumpist of anything — I mean anything — stop right now. The Trumpists’ reaction to Warren’s DNA test — a cacophony of fact-free insanity about race and DNA and even just the bare facts of what happened — tells you you’re wasting your time.
“I don’t see the point in baiting Trumpists, or insulting them, or calling attention to their madness on a daily basis. These people are fundamentally unserious about truth, discourse, and anything resembling a community of ideas. So (1) ignore them — completely and (2) vote — always.” — Author (“Proof of Collusion“) and Hollywood Reporter correspondent Seth Abramson (@SethAbramson), 10.16.18, around 5 pm.
