Donald Trump doesn't use a teleprompter or notes when he is running for the GOP ticket. He chooses to speak off the cuff and sometimes that gets him into trouble...for speaking the truth.
In the latest GOP debate The Donald doubled-down on his previous statements that the neo-con Bush administration lied US into a war, the worst foreign policy fiasco in US history. What did it get him for speaking the truth to the GOP crowd? Not cheers. The Donald has yet to grasp how delusional the GOP loyalists are about the Iraq War. Almost as delusional as The Donald was about Obama's place of birth.
The GOP delusion could be attributed to the brainwashing that passes for news on FOX NEWS, but it may be more of a case of cognitive dissonance. Leon Festinger's cognitive dissonance theory held that whenever an individual holds two inconsistent beliefs they will be in a state of anxiety which acts as a constant source of motivation to alter one the beliefs and dissolve the inconsistency. The stronger the investment you have in an idea the stronger the impulse to explain away the belief or evidence that threatens it. Trump failed to understand that in the neo-con bubble the Iraq War was not a mistake: it got rid of Saddam Hussein and his weapons of mass destruction. And NOTHING The Donald says can penetrate that bubble.
Here's a suggestion: Fight one lie with another. Convince the madding crowd that it was Obama who planted the false intelligence about WMDs, just like he planted his fake Hawaii birth certificate when he was growing up in Kenya. Yeah, that's the winning ticket.
