Elie Mystal examines the “Trump Defense.”

What is the “Trump Defense,” you might ask?

“MAGA bomber” Cesar Sayoc argued that his pipe-bombing terrorism was because of messages he received from watching Fox News and listening to Donald Trump. That mitigation was rejected, and Sayoc was sentenced to 20 years. Now, Curt Brockway, who was arrested and charged for assaulting a 13-year-old and breaking his skull because the kid didn’t remove his hat during the National Anthem, is arguing that Trump’s rhetoric contributed to the assault.

Trump vs. Teleprompter 0

Will Bunch calls the play-by-play. An excerpt:

Donald Trump’s teleprompter: “We have asked the FBI to identify all further resources they need to investigate and disrupt hate crimes and domestic terrorism.” (August 5, 2019)

The Daily Beast: “The Department of Homeland Security has disbanded a group of intelligence analysts who focused on domestic terrorism, The Daily Beast has learned. Numerous current and former DHS officials say they find the development concerning, as the threat of homegrown terrorism—including white supremacist terrorism—is growing.” (April 2, 2019)

Donald Trump’s teleprompter: “We must recognize that the internet has provided a dangerous avenue to radicalize disturbed minds and perform demented acts.” (August 5, 2019)

Trump 2020 campaign ad on Facebook: “We have an INVASION! So we are BUILDING THE WALL to STOP IT. Dems will sue us. But we want a SAFE COUNTRY! It’s CRITICAL that we STOP THE INVASION.” (one of 2,000 Trump campaign Facebook ads purchased recently).

Who do you believe: the person or the machine?
