It's almost like Trump spent the entire presidential campaign accusing the Clinton Foundation of doing exactly what the NY AG's office says the Trump Foundation actually did. Go figure. pic.twitter.com/tRGZVm1IAG— Caroline O. (@RVAwonk) June 14, 2018
Why? Because Trump and his kind know that they themselves are awful people who have no ethical compass, no respect for the law or decency, who have much sense of entitlement, and ... expect everyone else to be just as awful.
So, when they criticize others, they focus on what they would do in a similar circumstance and say that is what these folks are doing. Clinton Foundation must be corrupt because the Trump one certainly is. And on and on and on.
I think this is the Rosetta Stone for understanding much of what Trump says--that when he says something bad about someone else, he is usually revealing something that he does himself. The swamp? He has been living in and creating swamps his entire life.
Anyhow, I will not keep track of Trump projections because I don't have Dan Drezner's diligence when he keeps track of Trump fans and aides who refer to him as a toddler. But I will point it out when I see it--and that will be often.
