more Fog of Unknowability from Trump WH (via Putin playbook).

he makes wild claim. nobody can support it. reporters keep asking. then he kind of walks it back, reporters then write that up. soon he'll issue another contradictory statement. and on and on it goes.
we've doing this for 20 months. it's the *exact* same cycle every time. (see: Saudi assassination)
why does it work? bc instead of instantly and emphatically tagging Trump's lies, press timidly pretends they can't understand what he's talking abt etc.

i.e. 'wait, a tax cut before Election Day, that doesn't make sense.'

nope, he's just lying
