Drawing a section from Schopenhauer’s The Art [ifice] of Always Being Right - a must-have manual to articulate the artifice methods of the Trump and other gangs:

Persuade the Audience, Not The Opponent
This is chiefly practicable in a dispute between scholars in the presence of the unlearned. If you have no argument ad rem, and none either ad hominem, you can make one ad auditores; that is to say, you can start some invalid objection, which, however, only an expert sees to be invalid. Now your opponent is an expert, but those who form your audience are not, and accordingly in their eyes he is defeated; particularly if the objection which you make places him in any ridiculous light. People are ready to laugh, and you have the laughers on your side. To show that your objection is an idle one, would require a long explanation on the part of your opponent, and a reference to the principles of the branch of knowledge in question, or to the elements of the matter which you are discussing; and people are not disposed to listen to it. For example, your opponent states that in the original formation of a mountain-range the granite and other elements in its composition were, by reason of their high temperature, in a fluid or molten state; that the temperature must have amounted to some 480 degrees Fahrenheit; and that when the mass took shape it was covered by the sea. You reply, by an argument ad auditores, that at that temperature - nay, indeed, long before it had been reached, namely, at 212 degrees Fahrenheit - the sea would have been boiled away, and spread through the air in the form of steam. At this the audience laughs. To refute the objection, your opponent would have to show that the boiling-point depends not only on the degree of warmth, but also on the atmospheric pressure; and that as soon as about half the sea-water had gone off in the shape of steam, this pressure would be so greatly increased that the rest of it would fail to boil even at a temperature of 480 degrees. He is debarred from giving this explanation, as it would require a treatise to demonstrate the matter to those who had no acquaintance with physics.

Well at least America can take confidence with the holy, chosen one, the Orange Prophet, leading the way, with the hands of the prayerful faithful touching his divine body, assured that godly guidance pervades his every thought as he leads the nation from iniquity.
Chief Apostle, the Blazing White Light Pence, had met with his coronavirus management team. All had prayed before their meeting to set objectives for the nation. Once settled into the sacred light, having got right with god and ready to govern, the Blazing White Light says, "We’re done. Good work people.’

After the speech Pence passed out leeches to the audience and suggested application of the same and prayer to combat the spread of the coronavirus. “If any succumb to the virus it will demonstrate they did not pray hard enough and lacked Faith in the saviour” he quipped.
