My father had several heart attacks, and had stents put in. Those are not the same thing.

When I was five I very nearly lost my right leg below the knee. That does not qualify me as an amputee.

Not saying they're the same thing.  But I can see someone, during an interview, making the mistake of saying someone had had a heart attack when they misremembered open heart surgery.  Rebecca was presuming that this couldn't possibly have been an honest mistake and was attributable to malice.

In the Trump administration, if our choice is between “honest mistake” and malice, I know which I’d pick.

"Oh, a lot of 'people' are 'saying', 'talking about' Hunter Biden doing something very very wrong... ohh, what's he hiding? Why doesn't he waive all rights and let us investigate fairly?"

"Oh, a lot of 'people' are 'saying', 'talking about' Mike Bloomberg doing something very very wrong... ohh, what's he hiding? Why doesn't he waive all rights and let us investigate fairly?"

Is Bernie's campaign so different from Trump? Honest mispeaks are a staple of Trump too, as in: "I meant to say I don't see why it wouldn't be Russia meddling."

Hyperbolic mudslinging to confuse and demoralize. Drum up the doubt and apathy so people don't even both to vote for anyone yet again.

It's up to you; keep a sharp eye for any more honest misspeaking Bernie bros. or 'believe' in your super politician.
