Here is the 70th Secretary of State acting as the President of the United States’ universal translator. Transcript is available here. People say that a few more performances like this and they might have to start giving him a new nickname.
Coz, you know what that Orwell fella wrote: “In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality was tacitly denied by their philosophy. The heresy of heresies was common sense.”
Incredible exchange between @jaketapper & Pompeo
TAPPER: Do you think North Korea remains a nuclear threat?
T: But POTUS said he doesn't
P: That's not what he said
T: He tweeted, 'there's no longer a nuclear threat from NK'
P: Not quite
T: It's a direct quote! pic.twitter.com/hqwdhvuKHO

Just landed – a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office. There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea. Meeting with Kim Jong Un was an interesting and very positive experience. North Korea has great potential for the future!

another example of a gaslighting government @jaketapper: Do you still think North Korea is a nuclear threat despite President Trump saying they are not?@SecPompeo: Yes. And he didn’t say that. @jaketapper: Yes he tweeted it. It’s a direct quote. #CNNSOTU

"The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command."
