1/ On Thursday 1 November 2018, Jonathan Karl of ABC News interviewed President Trump. One of Trump's responses went particularly viral. What follows is a partial nonverbal analysis of this interview.
2/ JONATHAN KARL (continuing at 3:49): "And finally, I remember, you remember - well on the campaign, you made a promise, you said, 'I will never lie to you'. So, can you tell me now, honestly, have you - kept that promise at all times? Have you always been truthful?"

<THREAD> @MarshaBlackburn Dear Marsha - those weren't "angry mobs" at your event Angry mobs were the ones who showed up, ARMED and at the behest of the gop, at the ACA town halls. There were no "angry mobs" at the kavanaugh hearings 1/
those were women who were sexually assaulted, who's "representatives" would not listen to them, exercising their First Amendment Right of Free Speech. No one was hurt, not one had bombs sent to their homes, no one was shot. Stop with the b.s. hateful rhetoric. 2/
You and the republicans are spouting disingenuous rhetoric because you can't stand on your pathetic record so the only way you can win is by #Lying, obfuscation, and cheating. Your hateful remarks are getting people hurt 3/

Against Normalization: The Lesson of the “Munich Post”

1/
THE TRUMP-HITLER COMPARISON.
Is there any comparison? Between the way the campaigns of Donald #Trump and Adolf #Hitler should have been treated by the #media and the culture? The way the media should act now? The problem of #normalization?
2/
Because I’d written a book called Explaining Hitler several editors had asked me, during the #campaign, to see what could be said on the subject.

Until the morning after the election I had declined them.

1/ There are many nonverbal signs indicating relative levels of confidence. During last week's hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford exhibited contrasting examples of one such signal.
2/ When a person raises their right hand to be sworn-in before testifying, if their fingers and/or thumb are spread apart - it signals low levels of confidence.

Trump's Lying Seems To Be Getting Worse. Psychology Suggests There's a Reason Why:
#LieGate
📢According to psychologists, we lie MORE when we know there are no uncomfortable physiological feelings associated with #lying.😧

🧐So the lies are getting bolder and more frequent, according to psychologists because we're not CALLING HIM OUT on his BS?

The most common form of propaganda is repetition.

This is why the @BBC repeat over and over negative stories about Labour and its Leadership but, have hardly ever said anything about the incredible criminality of the Conservative Party and its Leadership in last 8 years.
Importantly, this also applies to outright #lies.

Mark Twain said "A Lie Can Travel Halfway Around the World While the Truth Is Putting On Its Shoes," and he was right.
But in today's world with instant communication it takes but the utterance of a lie a single time by a institution like the @BBC for a lie to be believed.
