Exhausting your critical thinking means you longer make the effort, or are capable, to differentiate between truth and untruth, between facts and "alternative facts", between reason and irrationality.

Then, the status of truth and untruth, facts and 'alternative facts, reason and irrationality, doesn't matter anymore. Because they became "acceptable equals".
In the mind of people: "...it's all the same".

One simple example:
"Trump is a pathological liar" devolves into "All politicians do lie, so what? Politicians, they all lie."

A Trump election conspiracy collapses
A Trump election conspiracy theory has fallen apart after Florida’s law enforcement agency said it had found no widespread voter fraud in the 2018 races for Senate and governor.

President Donald Trump had complained repeatedly about election “fraud” and theft in heavily populated, Democrat-rich Broward and Palm Beach counties, which had slowly but erratically updated their vote totals after polls closed on Election Day. ...

Trump’s corruption conspiracy in Florida collapsed as he sought to discredit vote-by-mail efforts in two other battleground states, Michigan and Nevada, with incendiary and false rhetoric. As Trump tweeted falsities about vote-by-mail in those states, the Florida GOP sent a fundraising email urging donors to "Stop Voter Fraud." ...

White House just lied about why Trump didn't vote in person
The White House claimed Donald Trump was 'unable to cast his vote' in Florida because he was stuck in Washington — but evidence shows otherwise.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported on Wednesday that Trump was at his Florida golf club on March 7 and 8, located "across the street from a library where early voting was offered from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m." on both those days.

Donald Trump Tried to Help Michael Flynn. Instead, He Played Himself.
The Flynn motion was supposed to roll out Trump’s summer of “Obamagate.” Instead, it’s poised to expose more of his administration’s dirty laundry.

While Trump will doubtlessly succeed in protecting Flynn from going to prison, he could do so at the cost of either a drawn-out court battle that will tortuously expose the mendacious nature of the DOJ’s effort to undermine the Russia investigation, or the issuance of a pardon amounting an admission of what the world already knows: that he’s letting a guilty crony off.

On the Revisionist Histories at the Heart of Fascism and Populism
From Perón to Trump, the Political Art of Spinning Lies Into Myth

Fascism and populism both appeal to the political trinity, leader, nation, and people, as their main source of legitimation. In both formations, there is no contradiction between the people, the nation, and the representation of the people in the persona of the leader. These ideologies believe in personification as representation, which means, in effect, that achieving the will of the people is fully delegated to the leader. This three-part myth of representation rests on the fantasy that somehow a single leader is the same as a nation and its people—an identification of one person and two concepts. ...

... Trump told his followers that his election marked “our independence day.” Perón similarly identified his own election in 1946 with a second “independence,” maintaining, “God put me on earth for the independence and the freedom of the Argentine people.” He also identified his leadership with a long history of military conquerors who were, like him, conductors of the people: “The history of the world, through the examples of Alexander, Julius Caesar, Frederick or Napoleon, shows that victory belongs to those that know to lift and conduct the people.”

If when modern populism gained power after 1945 it reformulated fascism in a democratic key, the new populists of the contemporary Right are getting closer to the fascist dream of the destruction of history and its replacement with the myth of the infallible leader. Early populist leaders had a certain hesitation about radically changing the historical record, as the fascists had done. This has changed with the right-wing populists of this new century. They are reverse engineering their own history, especially with respect to the history of fascism itself.

The distortion of fascist history in general, and Nazi history in particular, has been a fundamental feature of the new populist brand. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, at times allied with racist and xenophobic parties in Israel and abroad, has also distorted Holocaust history to suit his political interests, most recently by suggesting that an interwar pro-Nazi Palestinian leader was a key actor in the extermination of European Jews.

According to Netanyahu, in 1941 Adolf Hitler asked the mufti’s advice: “What should I do with them?” The mufti replied, “Burn them.” There is no evidence that this dialogue ever took place. Similarly, the American caudillo Donald Trump denounced his enemies for supposedly adopting Gestapo tactics but also attacked “anti-fa” and claimed that even among neo-Nazis there were “good people.”

Why do populist leaders want to forgive, distort, or displace the actual history of Nazism and fascism? Because, as these leaders draw from the well of fascist ideology, rhetoric, and tactics, they have to neuter the history of fascism to normalize their politics. Revising the history of fascism renders it mythical rather than historical, suggesting that the fascism of the past was not that bad—or not even fascism at all. This is, of course, a lie. ...

THE DONALD TRUMP INCOMPETENCE DODGE

... The incompetence dodge is a viable response to many of Trump’s individual sins. But it can’t account for the synthesis between those sins and the political party that enables them (and will still be there after he loses or is term-limited out of power) because the authoritarian system they have constructed in tandem is impossible to brush aside as a fleeting Trump vanity project.

Start near the end: Trump and his loyalist attorney general enlisted a U.S. attorney to find a crime—any crime, no matter how nonpressing—all so they could time charges to bolster a larger propaganda campaign designed to smear Trump’s opposition and help him win re-election.

Senate Republicans will run that larger propaganda campaign on Trump’s behalf out of the Judiciary Committee, using subpoena power to enable selective leaks and compel testimony from senior officials of the former administration, not to inform the public about any kind of conspiratorial wrongdoing—there was no such wrongdoing—but to leave as much of the public as possible with the impression that Something Bad Happened. ...

... Republicans will participate in this charade gladly, for no reason other than that Trump asked them to. “I just think that everybody realizes that our fortunes sort of rise or fall together,” said Sen. John Thune (R-SD), the second highest ranking Republican in the Senate. “One thing we have to do is to make sure that we are united on our agenda and make sure that there’s not separation between the White House and Republicans in Congress.” If it’s in Trump’s political interest it’s worth doing, because his success is their success. The edifice would collapse in an instant if Trump nominated a single liberal jurist to an appellate court. And that is the synthesis. ...

... He is in fact incompetent, but he looks much more hapless than he might because our system of government required him to stack the courts and fill the bureaucracy with cronies before he could get away with more than just theft and executive overreach. And he is nearly there.

That Trump’s main interest isn’t Republican policy, but in creating a mafia state for as long as he holds office, doesn’t make him any less of an authoritarian, or an agent for imposing a right-wing agenda on an unconsenting public, even if most of the decrees will spill forth after he’s left elected office. ...

... Trump has in three short years neutralized nearly all institutional checks on his corruption—inspectors general, congressional oversight, the advice and consent process, and judicial review. The leaders of these institutions have all assented to his lawlessness, chosen to ignore it, or been purged from government. This is not just the “petty corruption” of an incompetent grifter. Absent a concerted effort by a unified Democratic majority to dilute the power of Trumpists on the courts and cast them out of the executive branch, they will continue to exert illegitimate, partisan power within the political system indefinitely. It will just be the purposeful kind of power that those who invoke the incompetence dodge are pleased to see—right-wing judicial activism, a robust system of checks and balances, but only when Democrats win. Democratic laws and regulations will summarily fall. Republicans will routinely defy congressional subpoenas, with protection from the courts, while subpoenas Republicans issue to Democrats will somehow always be found to have merit. Disputes over elections will increasingly be resolved in the favor of one party over another. And these creeping inequities will irreversibly explode if Trump is re-elected. The topsy turvy world where by-the-book Barack Obama was “Caesar,” but Donald Trump’s claims to absolute authority are never worth worrying about, will be codified. ...

But my guess is that COVID-19 will "throw a spanner in the works" and upend it all.

Trump to lose 2020 election in a landslide defeat, model predicts
A national election model has predicted that Donald Trump will suffer a “historic defeat” in November’s election due to the coronavirus economic recession.

The model by Oxford Economics uses unemployment, disposable income and inflation to forecast election results to predict the elections outcome.

According to the model, Mr Trump will lose in a landslide, capturing just 35 per cent of the popular vote, according to a report by CNN.
The model has predicted the winner of the popular vote in 16 of the past 18 elections and is a complete reversal of what the model was predicting before the coronavirus outbreak hit the US.

Before the public health crisis, Oxford Economics predicted that Mr Trump would win about 55 per cent of the vote, CNN reported.
“It would take nothing short of an economic miracle for pocketbooks to favour Trump,” Oxford Economics wrote in the report, according to the broadcaster.

It added that the economy will be a “nearly insurmountable obstacle for Trump come November”.
The forecaster said that the downturn has emerged in light of the poor economic backdrop the country now faces, and the model assumes that this would still be the case by the time of the election.
“The economy would still be in a worse state than at the depth of the Great Depression,” Oxford Economics said.

AMERICAN ‘CHRISTIANITY’ HAS FAILED
For the last few years Christians have been singing worship songs that include lyrics like “ keep my eyes above the waves, when oceans rise …” and yet have rejected refugees who’ve seen loved ones die beneath waves, who themselves have literally struggled to keep from drowning in oceans. Those American Christians — particularly white evangelicals — continue to sing the words: “Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders …” but fail to realize the shameful irony that they’re largely responsible for refusing shelter and opportunity to some of the world’s most helpless and oppressed people.

This represents a predominant theme of Westernized Christendom: proclaiming Christian rhetoric while actively — or passively — practicing the opposite in reality.

Trumski bestimmt nicht, was wann wo geoeffnet wird. Das obliegt den Staaten und den Counties. Und wenn er noch so rumbloekt.

Trump will ohne Ruecksicht auf Verluste loslegen -um die Wirtschaft zu retten. Dabei sind ihm die Konsequenzen des Virus auf die Menschen voellig egal. Es geht um seine Wiederwahl und sonst nichts.
Nicht nur sind ihm die Menschenleben voellig wurscht, er begreift auch die Zusammenhaenge nicht. Naemlich:

A.) Dass die Wirtschaft sowieso schon im Arsch ist. Und dass
B.) jede ruecksichtslose zu fruehe Oeffnung sich zwangslaeufig in der naechsten Welle der Infektionen und Toten niederschlagen wird. Die automatisch dann wieder eine weitere Schliessung der Wirtschaft erzwingt. Mit noch schlimmeren Konsequenzen als zuvor.

Dabei ist die erste Welle ja noch lang nicht durch -an Infektionen und Toten. Und die wirtschaftlichen Schmerzen kommen auch erst so richtig in zwei Monaten.

Er kapiert nicht, dass er da "between a rock and a hard place" steht. Dafuer fehlt ihm die mentale Kapazitaet.
Aber er kapiert "ueberleben" -sein eigenes ueberleben. Wie bei Narzissten ja das Hauptmotiv fuer alles. Da geht der auch ueber Leichen. Da geht er sogar ueber den Fortbestand der USA.

Er und sein Partei haben den Knall noch nicht gehoert. Und dafuer brauche ich keine Wahlvorhersagemodell.

Den Virus interessiert naemlich solches alles nicht. Den interessiert nur eines: Vermehrungsplaetze finden.
Auch ruecksichtslos. Und vor allen Dingen unermuedlich.

Behind Trump’s demand to reopen churches: Slipping poll numbers and alarm inside his campaign
Trump was counting on widening support from white religious voters this fall. The pandemic is sending his numbers the other way.

A sudden shift in support for Donald Trump among religious conservatives is triggering alarm bells inside his reelection campaign, where top aides have long banked on expanding the president’s evangelical base as a key part of their strategy for victory this November.

The anxiety over Trump’s standing with the Christian right surfaced after a pair of surveys by reputable outfits earlier this month found waning confidence in the administration’s coronavirus response among key religious groups, with a staggering decline in the president’s favorability among white evangelicals and white Catholics. Both are crucial constituencies that supported Trump by wide margins in 2016 and could sink his reelection prospects if their turnout shrinks this fall. ...

Trump Condemned for Praising Noted Anti-Semite Henry Ford’s “Good Bloodlines”
President Donald Trump, while touring a Ford Motor facility in Ypsilanti, Michigan, on Thursday, offered controversial praise for the company’s anti-Semitic founder.

Trump complimented Henry Ford’s genetics in an ad-libbed statement during a speech at the plant.
“The company founded by a man named Henry Ford,” Trump described Ford Motor Company as being. “Good bloodlines, good bloodlines. If you believe in that stuff, you get good blood.”

Many blasted Trump’s comments as being insensitive, as they seemed to ignore the bigoted views that Ford himself held, especially about Jewish people.

Bend the Arc, a progressive Jewish organization, condemned the president in a tweet Thursday evening.
“Henry Ford was a Nazi sympathizer who wrote ‘The International Jew, the World’s Foremost Problem,'” the organization noted. “Hitler called Ford an ‘inspiration’ & gave him the highest Nazi medal for foreigners. Trump praising Ford’s ‘good bloodlines’ = a dog-whistle to antisemites & white nationalists.”

Ford’s personal history is rife with examples of hatred for Jewish people. He infamously purchased a newspaper in Dearborn, Michigan, where he promoted his bigotry in print to a large circulation. His words against Jewish people even caught the attention of fascists, including Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

“You can tell Herr Ford that I am a great admirer of his,” Hitler once said. “I shall do my best to put his theories into practice in Germany.”

Although eugenics has been discredited as pseudoscience, in some ways Trump has expressed a tacit endorsement of its tenets, as Ford is not the first person he has praised for ostensibly having superior genetics.

In the past, Trump has touted a group of British business leaders as having “such good bloodlines” as well. The president himself bragged about his own genetics, stating that he was “proud to have that German blood” in 2017. ...
