salon.com/2019/10/02/wha… Republicans are complaining anonymously to reporters that Trump hasn't set up a "war room" to coordinate the "counter-impeachment strategy". (Read: The lies.) But sadly, they shouldn't worry. Fox News has them covered.
The ability of right wing media to bamboozle its followers is astounding. Only 40% of Republicans "believe" that Trump mentioned Biden on the call to Zelensky. But this isn't a matter of belief. It's right there in the recreated transcript. He mentions him multiple times!
No White House "war room" could ever equal the ability of the multi-billion dollar right wing media industry to convince Republican voters to believe false things.
No, what Republicans *want* is someone to help them craft a lie that will convince the mushy middle that isn't thoroughly poisoned by Fox News but also doesn't pay much attention generally. But Trump is so flagrant a criminal that there's no way to spin this to those folks.
