The Twitter version:
"At this point, @NYGovCuomo's just blabbing unhinged, far lefty, crazy platitudes. He just told Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 'here hold my beer.' This is the political version of here hold my beer." —@DLoesch #NRA pic.twitter.com/M3sKSOC9VG

The blog version:
I’m a fan of a lady called Dana Loesch – she can be a bit rough but she make sense of things. She just did a tweet, a video, and part of it was this man Cuomo and he was blatantly lying.
He started by telling a gathering that you can’t make America great again because it was never great in the first place. That is astounding for a political leader in the US to say. Sure there are problems as every nation has but the truth is that the US is powerful by so many measures. And here’s this man saying this.
Cut to Dana and the look she gives is priceless. Then it showed a tweet he did:
DJT never said anything of the kind, the man Cuomo is blatantly lying to those fans. I don’t mean distorting, I mean lying.
Now readers, you know I tear strips off such people on the blog, even mock them but there’s a level though where I am shocked and dismayed that an adult human could stand at a lectern and say these things which are patently false, and then throw in all these feelgood words about what they will not go back to, as if DJT had said any of that. But these people ONLY see and hear people like Cuomo – he is their reality.
Dana Loesch just looked at the camera for a moment, dazed, then said the man was unhinged, blabbing on about things which were the classic definition of “strawman”, that’s where you attribute something wrongly, make out this is what he said when he didn’t.
Now we all know at this blog that these people like Cuomo do this and we tear strips off them but to actually see and hear it live – well, what appalled me was the blatant untruths coming out of an adult human’s mouth, I’ve never been able to handle that on a personal level.
On the subject of Twitter, each time I go in these few days, there are a dozen or so fewer followers – it’s bleeding followers. Tomorrow at 08:30 is a post on that – someone is systematically removing them and not just from me. Julia was given a warning. The Federal Communications Commission over there has just revoked Alex Jones’s radio permit.
Twitter is telling me they have not sent a tweet, they sometimes hold one back for a minute. Someone is censoring my tweets – I’m not important enough, these people are truly insane.
These things are just so openly wrong.
