“Trump Is a Fraud”

“Trump is a Fraud” goes a bit far. Did the Washington Post go too far? Jamal Ahmad Khashoggi was one of theirs. And it was Donald Trump who vehemently defended his business partner Mohammad bin Salman. The Washington Post will not forget that.

Application: The Bellman’s Rule

#! /usr/bin/haskell
import Data.List
statementList :: [String]
statementList =
  ["BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!"
  ,"BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!"
  ,"BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!"
  ,"I am a stable genius!"
  ,"BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!"
  ,"BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!"
  ,"BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!"
  ,"BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!"
  ,"BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!"
  ,"1+1=2"
  ,"BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!"
  ,"BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!"
  ,"I am a stable genius!"
  ,"BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!"
  ,"BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!"
  ,"BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!"
  ,"I am a stable genius!"
  ,"BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!"
  ,"BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!"
  ,"BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!"
  ]
atLeastThrice :: [String] -> [String]
atLeastThrice sL =
  [head grp | grp <-
    group $ sort sL, length grp >= 3]

Result (if loaded and executed in GHCi):

*Main> atLeastThrice statementList
["BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!","I am a stable genius!"]

Interpretation: “BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!” and “I am a stable genius!” are true, because both assertions appeared at least three times. Actually, “BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!” is double-plus-true, because all letters have been capitalized and because the assertion ends with an exclamation mark.


Trump’s Leverage:
Insensitivity to Human Suffering

Trump’s Leverage in the Shutdown Fight: His Own Nihilism
By Eric Levitz

[…] Trump has repeatedly indicated that he sees his own insensitivity to human suffering as a vital source of leverage over Democrats. He explicitly framed his administration’s sabotage of the Affordable Care Act as a strategy for forcing Democrats to cooperate with the law’s repeal and replacement. He has repeatedly suggested that he doesn’t want to make a deal on Dreamers while a court order protecting them from the threat of deportation remains in effect — because he believes he’ll be able to secure larger concessions once that population is thrown into peril. […]

In a nutshell: The man is evil. And seemingly the present US society is providing him with an environment in which being evil helps him.
