Absolutely no effect

Trump continues to announce as fact – even in official statements that are obviously by written by someone else (who knows how to write) – things he doesn’t and can’t possibly know.

President-elect Donald J. Trump acknowledged the possibility on Friday that Russia had hacked a variety of American targets, including the Democratic National Committee, after an almost two-hour meeting with the nation’s top intelligence officials.

Mr. Trump asserted that the hacking had no effect on the outcome of the election.

That. He can’t know that.

If he weren’t so stupid, he would realize how stupid it makes him look to make such ridiculous claims. But he is, so he doesn’t.

In a statement issued after the president-elect was briefed by senior American intelligence and law enforcement officials, Mr. Trump said: “While Russia, China, other countries, outside groups and people are consistently trying to break through the cyber infrastructure of our governmental institutions, businesses and organizations including the Democrat National Committee, there was absolutely no effect on the outcome of the election including the fact that there was no tampering whatsoever with voting machines.”

He not only states it, he overstates it. “Absolutely no effect” – how the fuck would he know that? He wouldn’t, of course, and he doesn’t, yet he says it, thus revealing yet again what a thicko he is.

It brings me out in a rash, this kind of brainless confidence of knowing things one can’t possibly know.
