Trump Blatantly Lies About Starting The ‘Send Her Back’ Chant—Let’s Go To The Tape

Is there a point at which people will become over-gaslighted and snap? Donald Trump is pushing that right up to the edge with his latest blatant lie in which he claimed he tried to stop the “send her back” chant at his latest ego rally by quickly speaking over it when everyone in the world has seen the video of him standing there and letting it happen.

In the Oval Office interview, Trump claimed he was “not happy about” his supporters spouting the disturbingly racist chant demanding that a U.S. citizen and congresswoman be stripped of her citizenship and sent back to the country she fled many years ago as a refugee. This struck many people as odd considering the fact that the video of the event shows him standing there, basking in the attention, for several long seconds before finally resuming his speech without being like “hey maybe don’t do that.”

It’s also a confusing thing for Trump to say considering the fact that they likely chanted what they chanted because Trump tweeted that congresswomen like Ilhan Omar should “go back” to where they came from. He also suggested during the rally that anyone who has any criticisms of him, the U.S. government, or the country in general should just leave.

Based on the responses to this latest Trump lie, it seems that people are about at their limit in terms of blatant gaslighting. Here are the most tired tweets on the subject:

If the goal of gaslighting is to make someone go insane, then at least Trump’s doing one thing right.
