Trump's Big CON: 'Nobody Knew Health Care Was So Unbelievably Complex and Complicated'

Only a simpleton would believe that.

Of course Trump says it so that the right-wing media complex will repeat it ad nauseam for the many Republi-CON simpletons.

"Many policy makers had anticipated the intricacies of changing the health care law".

Trump's Big CON: He Fancies Himself the Unquestionable Supreme Leader

"The phrase was too toxic even for Nikita Khrushchev, a war-hardened veteran communist not known for squeamishness. As leader of the Soviet Union, he demanded an end to the use of the term 'enemy of the people' because 'it eliminated the possibility of any kind of ideological fight.'

'The formula 'enemy of the people,'' Mr. Khrushchev told the Soviet Communist Party in a 1956 speech denouncing Stalin’s cult of personality, 'was specifically introduced for the purpose of physically annihilating such individuals' who disagreed with the supreme leader. . .

Why would the elected leader of a democratic nation embrace a label that, after the death of Stalin, even the Soviet Union found to be too freighted with sinister connotations? . .

He has used the phrase more than once, including Friday during an attack on the news media at a conservative gathering in which he said that some reporters were making up unnamed sources to attack him. . .

By using the phrase and placing himself in such infamous company, at least in his choice of vocabulary to attack his critics, Mr. Trump has demonstrated, Ms. Khrushcheva said, that the language of 'autocracy, of state nationalism is always the same regardless of the country, and no nation is exempt.' She added that, in all likelihood, Mr. Trump had not read Lenin, Stalin or Mao Zedong, but the 'formulas of insult, humiliation, domination, branding, enemy-forming and name calling are always the same.'"

As I've said before, Trump is a psycho-narcissistic con man. And he is afraid that eventually the people, through the media, will awaken to that realization.
