About Trump the Conservative Intelligentsia is as Ingenuous as the Liberal Intelligentsia

By Michael P. Tremoglie

When it comes to Donald Trump there is no shortage of lies printed by the mainstream media. Now one expects Democrats - especially the Democratic Party intelligentsia to believe these lies. After all, Democrats, if anything, are lemmings. But for the conservative intelligentsia to believe them is disconcerting. 

George Orwell wrote in his 1945 essay Notes on NationalismOne has to belong to the intelligentsia to believe things like that: no ordinary man could be such a fool.” The American intelligentsia is giving credence to what he wrote about the British intelligentsia more than two generations ago.

Here are just two examples of the patently, incredible lying in which the media engages regarding Donald Trump. But the cream of the educated crop believe, uncritically, the reportage. I do not understand this.

Trump Kicks Crying Baby from Rally:

Melania Trump is an illegal immigrant

This is last is particularly interesting because many are implying that Trump is a hypocrite ( liberals always love to call people hypocrites and are hypocritical when they do because they ignore their hypocrisy). They also note that Trump promoted the “birther” conspiracy theory. 

But the “birther” conspiracy theory was started by the Hillary Clinton campaign.
