Saw this on a Facebook friend’s feed:
No one really believes this woman is lying. If they vote him in: It is because they believe her and don’t care. We should stop saying believe. It’s not about that anymore. It is about whether or not they care.

Another Facebook friend posted something along those lines:
Neither of these people live in bubbles. They are both red-state Democrats who (I can attest) know enough conservatives/Republicans to presumably have a decent understanding of what we actually believe. And yet both posted these disgusting calumnies.
It’s bad enough to encounter play-actors like Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand who mouth ridiculous caricatures of Republicans in order to rile up their base. But when people – intelligent people – propagate these falsehoods, you know we are the point of no return.
Emotion has completely swallowed reason. It will only get worse from here.
