Hearing the complete opposite

Just got done arguing with a woman on one of my writing sites, or maybe on Facebook, and she attacked me “how can you support Biden, he can’t even string words together to make a complete sentence!” I immediately flashed back to 2016’s election and how I couldn’t even tell what they were talking about when they accused Hillary Clinton of the most ridiculous things. I’m sensing the same disconnect between the news democrats are seeing and the news republicans are seeing. I’m sensing the hand of Russia spreading disinformation. How can you debate on the facts when we’re seeing different facts? I constantly got the strange feeling we were talking past each other.

I can well believe how divided the US has become. Excellent, Mike.

Some people believe in "alternative facts".

Boy, they sure do--I guess I never thought that some people will believe anything, and not believe what they see with their own eyes--thanks, 88

How do morons like Trump get elected? I'm glad I live in a liberal democracy with compulsory voting. Send in the clowns.

I wish I could tell you, Craig, all I know is I've lost a lot of faith in some of my fellow countrymen, although Trump's an extreme example of what's happening around the globe

Please keep things civil here. I've removed a few abusive posts.

Thanks, Bill; not sure what you think is uncivil about this; I'm not calling anybody names, just giving my opinion that we're both seeing different news
