How can you listen when you can't hear?

I really like Kristof's approach in his letter to his "who believe that Donald Trump won re-election, who think that face masks are for wimps and who fear that Democrats are plotting to seize their freedom," but he published in the NYT, which Trump told them not to read.

So, conservative friends, fear not: We’re not plotting to lock you up in detention camps. We need you to keep us honest. But you’ve been scammed in ways that have hurt the country we all love. Hold us accountable, but please do the same for the charlatans who deceive you, use you and cheat you.

It's not easy to admit that you were conned , and it's harder still when the places you go to for your news are still perpetuating the myth of a stolen election. Until those blowhards on Fox are reined in these people will continue to invest in those lies rather than face the far more uncomfortable truth.

[@580625,QuixoticSoul] [@891327,JeanAnna] And both you knobs will keep responding no matter what.

You know, cuz it makes no difference.

[@841775,Budwick] Why we stop responding? Cope is funny.
[@18451,RodionRomanovitch] Good luck with that. 🦊 gets it's revenue by enhancing alternate reality bubbles for its viewers.

Eventually, I think Fox will have to move on to other issues, like blaming Biden, libs, Muslims and millennials for other stuff, but not while it's still getting good ratings.

Trump lives in your head rent free does he not? Please explain the count stoppage , dominion, the massive Biden only vote dumps , the illegal voting rule changes ... and then convince 75 million voters that a corrupt senile old man that couldn’t campaign because of his dementia got more votes than Obama and the most votes in history . And after you are done , 75 million will call you a liar . You can’t explain that away
[@841775,Budwick] Just about right, I think, given the subject matter, the parties concerned and our prior interactions.

I have no interest in typing up a transcript and writing a mini essay explaining how analogous Trumpism is to those Orangutans for you and [@113373,TexChik] to not read it and instead just call me names.

Sad thing is, that's pretty much what the clip is about.

[@479686,MistyCee] Seven Lines!

Mister Cee going for a record!
[@841775,Budwick] I'm on the mobile site on a phone, so it seems like more to me, but 16 lines seems like a more than worthy response to your 3 lines and her emoji.

Did you watch and listen to the clip at least?

Because the conservative media outlets are still enjoying the kool aid?

There is no widespread GOP disillusionment with Trumpism. If this were the case, the crazy Congresswoman from Georgia would have been censored by the GOP.
[@9416,Northwest] They're [i] passing out[/i] the kool aid, really.

[@841775,Budwick] How many deaths have they called for? How many people have they made degrading sexual slurs about?

I don't know.
CNN doesn't share those details.

How about Parler or Mike Lindell?

Not sure about Lindell making sexual slurs, but the answer to the other three questions is "a hell of a lot".
