I’ve often marvelled at the motivation of morons like this, & here we have a clue. It’s the feeling of community, of warm fellowship with like-minded inhabitants of the echo-chamber. No doubt the same factor is at work in less obviously absurd delusions
Not the first time he’s been caught making stuff up. Gets away with it because telling stupid fibs is all part of the carefully cultivated image of clownish charm. But will you still find it charming when you wake up & find the clown has become PM?
Life of Brian. Is anything funnier? Anything funnier? Tell us it, then. Just re-watched this documentary about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdU_6jUQI9s … Cleese & Palin were wrong to say it isn’t blasphemous. Of course it is blasphemous. That is one of its great virtues.
Such a treat to listen to two highly intelligent people in conversation. @SamHarrisOrg & @RickyGervais on comedy, taboo, mob idiocy on social media, wokeness, Venn diagrams, inability to distinguish jokes from reality, failure to get irony, & much more

Surely SOMEBODY can call Trump’s attention to what Boris Johnson said before he knew it would hurt him to be honest: Trump betrays “a quite stupefying ignorance that makes him, frankly, unfit to hold the office of president of the United States”
Ambassadors are paid to confidentially assess their host government. “Inept” is mild compared to what most envoys to US probably say. After the convenient leak, Johnson can send a sycophant to toady up to the vain, spiteful narcissist in the White House
