A-Hole Memory Hole

 The redoubtable Driftglass often says that the liberal superpower, and curse, is memory... we remember details from decades ago, which makes us particularly difficult to gaslight.  Movement Conservatives, however, love shoving inconvenient facts down the Memory Hole, to the extent that the Republican Party should change its symbol from an elephant to a mayfly.

Via Tengrain, we have a particularly grotesque example of this memory holing in action, as Vulgarmort attacks President Biden's COVID response (any failures of which are completely due to anti-vaxxers and anti-maskers):

Fuck, I was around in 2020, I know that over 500,000 people died on this asshole's watch.  Friends of mine died, other friends were laid up, sick, for over a month- one guy I know called 911 with a 103-degree fever and was told not to even bother going to the Emergency Room unless he had trouble breathing.

"Could you imagine if I were President right now and we had this massive attack from the Coronavirus?"  Imagine?  I was there, you were President, and you screwed up royally, and more than a half-million people died.  I'm not even sure this asshole is gaslighting the Fox audience, or if his brain has finally turned into mush, but this will probably be the most disgusting thing I'll read all week.

Who am I kidding?  It's early!

He was president when it started to happen. He did everything he could to make it worse. What is this gibberish he speaks?
Give me Google translator and it still makes no sense.
He's not sounding very strong in this clip.

I am sorry friends that we still have to watch this guy. The decrepit old fool is still dangerous, because of his cult.
Karma is totally inscrutable to me.

Ehh, we know what he's saying: "Who you gonna believe? Me, or your lyin' eyes?"

That's all it is. that's all it ever was.

Joe Biden is signing onto Trump's trillion dollar plans for new nuclear weapons. The US Empire is evil and all US Presidents are evil. If there is a future, people will speak about America like we speak about Nazi Germany.
