Gaslighting, if you’re unfamiliar with the term, refers to the manipulative practice of planting the seeds of doubt about how other people perceive reality, with the hope that in so doing you can get them to question inarguable truths for your own advantage.

This is what President Donald Trump tried to do with the American people with his tweet on Thursday morning denying that he had fired former FBI Director James Comey over the Russia investigation.

mojo ever tried the constitution? You might start there. First of all Trump had a million reasons to fire Comey and he actually waited too long to do so. Further more he need not one reason. He could of fired him because he did not like the color of his hair had he wanted. The American people understand this so why in the hell would this gaslight thing have any merit?

According to your definition of the term, Gaslighting is what you attempt here with almost every single one of your posts. 

You're just not very good at it.

Gaslighting seems to be the lite version of brainwashing the well informed.

Trump easily brainwashes his minions, all he has to do is put on his red MAGA cap & talk trash about Mexicans & all the rubes are enthralled & mesmerized to the bitter end. 

Reminds me of Hitler.
