Remember when Hitler publicized the crimes committed by Jewish people in order to whip up national sentiment against them? Ask Stephen Miller about it sometime.

He has told more than 13,000 lies since taking office. He has missed no opportunity to enrich himself and his family, while attacking the free press, the FBI, Muslims and immigrants, while jeopardising alliances and torpedoing America's standing in the world. Hence, ppl are mad.

"Once, during on on-camera interview, I was literally shot by someone firing an air rifle from an overpass. It was not a significant bullet and so I continued the interview. I felt no fear in this moment, just as I felt no fear working with the director of Iron Man."

"One night, sleeping in the jungle during the making of Fitzcarraldo, a venomous snake entered my tent & slipped into my sleeping bag. I stilled my heart and quieted my breathing until it slept and I was able to snap its neck. So, yes, I was fine making a movie with the Elf guy."

The six of these I have seen are all very good. Adding the remaining four to my list.

That was just off the top of my head. My point is, it is possible to defend yourself while retaining at least a shred of dignity.

How about: "I am confident that these proceedings, while constitutional, will find me to have done nothing wrong. I acted in the best interests of our country, and look forward to a swift end to this investigation so I can get back to the important work I was elected to perform."

Not quite there on the militaristic nationalism, but the others are pretty far along.

You mean the transcript you haven't released yet but are saying you might release sometime this week? Yeah. We can't read it because you haven't released it yet. Remember?

Our wonderful NHS, the pride of the nation, is on its knees after a decade of Tory underfunding and the staff lost to Brexit.
