Conservative Lie-Mentia

adjective: līˈmen(t)əd/

A condition when in which a person is both a liar and demented.

synonyms: Republican, Conservative, Tea Partier, Trumpshirt, post-01/20/09 "Independent", Fox news viewer

From Democratic Underground:
Giuliani talking about about 9/11: "I was there...I don't remember seeing Hillary Clinton."
This is followed by a series of photos (including the one at the top of this post) that would make Giuliani crawl into a hole and pull it in after him if Giuliani had a shred of dignity or higher brain functions left.

But alas, Conservative lie-mentia claims another victim.

We can stop this terrible affliction, but only with the generous support of  viewers like you!

Oh come on. This one is easy. He doesn't REMEMBER seeing her. It doesn't mean he didn't see her. It just means his faculties are dwindling. I hear that happens to some people as they age. There are other things that lead to dwindling mental capabilities besides aging, also. Syphilis comes to mind. I'm not saying Giuliani has syphilis but it would be irresponsible not to speculate.

Well, in his defense, she IS a woman, and therefore almost completely unnoticeable, particularly when she's wearing her Pantsuits of Invisibility.

I swear the line of 'Assholes this election season who deserve a good old-fashioned dickpunch' is growing exponentially. We're going to have to devise some sort of mechanized solution...

I think it's clear Giuliani is telling the truth. He never saw her. He wasn't looking at anybody that day unless they were pointing a camera at him.

There is some question about when this picture was taken. It may have been taken September 12.

What is worth investigating, though, is exactly what did Clinton say in the first place? Someone on MSNBC said that Giuliani was contradicting a claim Clinton never made.

Why would he remember it? What's in it for him?

In his defense, she is kind of hard to recognize with that mask on!

What is the psychological arc of the Dunning-Kruger effect? Surely it doesn't reach equilibrium where the stupid-who-don't-know-they're-stupid remain functional alcoholics. Eventually the liver gives out. Eventually the CDC will notice an outbreak of people unable to navigate in traffic, with worse cases unable to dress themselves.

Motherfucker wearing a cap with "NYFD" on it should come with a trigger warning.

Sure was helpful of him to leave them doomed to fail with those shitty radios.

Nor to mention putting his state-of-the-art Emergency Command Centre precisely where the previous attack had happened, AFTER being explicitly told that was idiotic.

Just imagine President Trump turning to that fucking nasty piece of work during another attack.

How did you get this?
It is such a rare occasion with forceful provocation to cause Rudi to speak about 9/11

But when he does it is always brief and to the point.
A noun. A verb and 9/11.------Like that.

Clinton never said it. She was in DC on 9/11 and went to NYC the next day. I imagine things were a tad hectic in DC that day so she couldn't teleport up to arrange a nice photo op. Fortunately Nosferatu was available for phottoging.
