Trump's Razor and the Sniffles

Ockham's Razor: The simplest explanation that fits the available facts is generally the correct one.

Trump's Razor: The DUMBEST FUCKING explanation that fits the available facts is generally the correct one.

Example: Trump is constantly sniffling throughout the debate.

Ockham's Razor: He probably had a cold.

Trump's Razor: I didn't sniffle. My mic was defective. The debate commission conspired to give me a bad mic to embarrass me. The sniffles that I just said never happened could only be heard because the debate commission gave me a mic that was so good it could pick up the tiny sound of the sniffles that, again, I said never happened.

This is just a silly example of how incredibly broken Trump's method of thinking is. Trump lies constantly but not just about big things that he needs to avoid. He lies about everything. He can't help himself even if it's just a simple cold. Instead of just saying, "Yeah, I had a bit of cold" he had to lay down one layer of a bald-faced, completely idiot lie: "There was no sniffles."

"No, no sniffles, no," Trump said. "You know, the mic was very bad, but maybe it was good enough to hear breathing. But there was no sniffles. I have no allergy."

But that's not good enough for Trump. He can't just be content with one stupid fucking lie. He needs to blame someone or something for the thing that he just said didn't happen. His ego is so utterly fragile that he can't even allow himself to admit even the tiniest of normal human qualities.

"I had a problem with the microphone that didn't work," Trump said. "I don't know if you saw that in the room. My microphone was terrible."

Ok. He's got his two layers of bullshit laid down. One layer of bald-faced lie and another layer of Blame Game. This should be good enough. Right? How can you have watched Trump for 5 minutes on TV and think that would be good enough for him? Cmon, you're not even trying.

It's a conspiracy!! The debate commission gave him a defective mic on purpose!!

You knew he was going to go for the conspiracy angle. We all did. It's his signature move. He's got 3 layers laid down on this bullshit party dip that no one wanted him to bring to the party... but that's not good enough. Even Steve Doocy on Fox & Friends heard him say this bullshit and mentioned that they were able to hear him clearly the same as Hillary Clinton, so Trump then quickly finished his awful party dip with a 4th layer of bald-faced, stupid lie and said that the mic was simultaneously bad that you could barely hear him and it was crackling but also so good that it could pick up his minute breathing... that was definitely not the sniffles.

That is this man's insanity. He is dangerously mentally ill because there is no such thing as truth or reality to him.
