Ask A Genius 509 – Legally Binding (3)

March 11, 2019

[Beginning of recorded material]

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: What about investigations?

Rick Rosner: There are many investigations ongoing now. You have the district of New York investigation. Every investigation is important.

You have I don’t know how many investigations ongoing now. This one is important because if Trump and his people are indicted on state charges then they aren’t pardonable. A president can only be indicted on federal charges.

There was a big story that came out in the New Yorker about big-time malfeasance about Fox News. A Fox News reporter uncovered the Stormy Daniels story during the 2016 election, but Fox News squelched it because they wanted Rupert Murdoch to win.

Now, the DNC is saying that Fox News given its huge bias will not be allowed to host any democratic presidential debates. It is hard to tell if any of this matters. Because Fox News continues to be Fox News and people continue to buy conservative, if you want to call it conservative, bias in Fox News.

Trump is in a mess. As a liberal, I can hope that it makes him act more and more unhinged, so that it eventually becomes apparent to all but the most fanatical of his followers that he shouldn’t be president.

But that is really wishful thinking. Partially because his supporters really support him; also, because, there is a big correlation between how dumb someone is and how much they support Trump.

Not all dumb people support Trump. But Trump supporters are dumber than average; the ones who peel off tend to be the smarter among the supporters. The less dumb will peel off leaving a core of supporters who have a lower level of intelligence.

They will be resistant to any kind of reality. That’s all I have.
