‘The Deep Denialism of Donald Trump’

“This White House, unlike any other, has already crossed the threshold into a space where facts appear to mean nothing.”

Michael Specter, writing in The New Yorker, deplores the denialism of the Trump White House.

“Eventually, the President’s daily policy outrages, his caustic insults, and his childish Twitter rants will fade into history. But it will take years to gauge the impact of having a habitual liar as President. When words like ‘science’ and ‘progress’ become unmoored from their meaning, the effects are incalculable. And let’s not kid ourselves: those words today are under assault with a ferocity we have not seen for hundreds of years.”
