The long, long con

Donald Trump has made the astounding claim that the major media are covering up terror events in order to protect Islam. His source of information? Not the CIA, and not the FSB. He got it from Alex Jones.

Incidentally, Alex Jones has declared his willingness to die for Trump.
Trump is so fire-breathing, so energetic, so cunning, so real, and he’s having results so amazing that it just makes me endeared to Trump – I’m ready to die for Trump, at this point. And I’m already ready to die for America, it’s the same feeling I have for America, because he is America, you’re America.
Jones is channeling Rudolf Hess in Triumph of the Will: "Hitler is Germany as Germany is Hitler!"

Brief and brilliant. I don't know who Ben Mallicote is, but...right on! (As we used to say back in the '70s.)
You voted for Trump because Clinton was going to be in Wall Street's pocket. Trump wants to repeal Dodd-Frank and eliminate the Fiduciary Rule, letting Wall Street return to its pre-2008 ways.

You voted for Trump because of Clinton's emails. The Trump administration is running its own private email server.

You voted for Trump because you thought the Clinton Foundation was "pay for play." Trump has refused to wall off his businesses from his administration, and personally profits from payments from foreign governments.

You voted for Trump because of Clinton's role in Benghazi. Trump ordered the Yemen raid without adequate intel, and tweeted about "FAKE NEWS" while Americans died as a result of his carelessness.

You voted for Trump because Clinton didn't care about "the little guy." Trump's cabinet is full of billionaires, and he took away your health insurance so he could give them a multi-million-dollar tax break.

You voted for Trump because he was going to build a wall and Mexico was going to pay for it. American consumers will pay for the wall via import tariffs.

You voted for Trump because Clinton was going to get us into a war. Trump has provoked our enemies, alienated our allies, and given ISIS a decade's worth of recruiting material.

You voted for Trump because Clinton didn't have the stamina to do the job. Trump hung up on the Australian Prime Minister during a 5pm phone call because "it was at the end of a long day and he was tired and fatigue was setting in."

You voted for Trump because foreign leaders wouldn't "respect" Clinton. Foreign leaders, both friendly and hostile, are openly mocking Trump.

You voted for Trump because Clinton lies and "he tells it like it is." Trump and his administration lie with a regularity and brazenness that can only be described as shocking.

Let's be honest about what really happened.

The reality is that you voted for Trump because you got conned. Trump is a grifter and the American people were the mark. Now that you know the score, quit insisting the con-man is on your side.
Seriously, where do I sign up? Now Sean Spicer is spreading the "paid protestor" myth.

This is the stupidest conspiracy theory since Pizzagate. Consider the logistics: How can a purveyor of purchased protests gather up thousands -- hundreds of thousands -- of employees without advertising? We don't have a single online confession from someone claiming "I was paid to protest." Were all the new hires sworn to secrecy? How can one enforce secrecy in such a situation? How could anyone pull off such a massive operation without leaving a single public trace? If someone is paying for protests, who?

And where do I sign up?

In his commentary, Spicer referred to the Tea Party protests as "organic." Actually...
The Tax Day Tea Party protests first occurred on April 15, 2009. This event was organized by Americans for Prosperity (AFP) and Freedomworks, corporate astroturf organizations.
