On CNN just now..

Woman who repeatedly shared Russian troll propaganda through social media got ROASTED and by a reporter in front of her house as she said over and over there were no Russians and that she met with people in person. Then every time the reporter brings it back to her being duped she flips out and screams fake news and begins ranting about Hillary.

This is what severe brainwashing by Fox / Russia / Trump looks like live and in your face. I honestly laughed in the moment seeing it - but it is frightening to witness people so far gone.

This is what we are dealing with trying to be real with these people who have been duped. To try and convince them they got played is a threat to their whole world... we must fight for the minds of the young and undecided because the Trumpers are a lost cause

2. That clip was on last night. I'm afraid there are a lot of people like that.

She was like one of those dolls that you pull a string on their back and they repeat their programmed phrases - she almost certainly learned her talking points from Fox News even before the Russian bots and trolls got to her. The Russians knew exactly whom to target. Of course, being challenged by a CNN reporter didn't help because CNN is fake news (and people will almost always dig their heels in when confronted, especially when they're that brainwashed).

3. A reporter should ask them

if they would drink the Kool Aid. If they say yes, then use that in ads. They are so far gone that maybe others would see the problem if it became more visible.

4. Sorry and I am NOT talking specifically about this woman, but some people CAN"T DIE FAST ENOUGH

in our country. Their ideas are so dated and they just don't get how they are being manipulated with newer technologies.

In a way, it sort of started in 2000 Florida with some folks mistakenly voting for Pat Buchanan instead of Al Gore. I bet most if not all of those folks are long gone but we are living with the repercussions of their "hanging chads"….

8. I hate to break it to you but not all of them are old.

You also don't want many of us to "die faster" since we do a lot of the leg work and phone work, donate to and support democrats. This is about nuts, not old people. I have met more crazy people who watch fox and spout crazy stuff under the age of 40 than over the age of 60.

5. You know who was duped worse? Leftwing voters who refused to vote for Hillary

and who unwittingly did their part to promote tRump.

These are people who have a certain level of “purity” over who they consider a REAL progressive. These are people who live here in CA who voted their purity by voting for Jill Stein, because they lived in a state that was going to go for Hillary in any case, so they felt they could vote their conscience. Of course, they also trashed Hillary on social media every chance they got, clueless that their trashing of the D candidate would help undermine her support in states in which it was not safe to vote your consicence, so to speak.

They helped the Russians elect tRump, and they will never admit that, because they are purer than the rest of us and know better than anybody.

7. Trump supporters are reacting with rage now

At first they laughed at the rest of us and told us to get over it. Then they whined because all we did was criticize Trump instead of making excuses for his incompetence. Now I notice they get pissed off or claim not to care and more and more of them are just shutting up now.

It’s simply getting impossible to defend him or what he does.
