Kim Ghattas: Trump Operates in an ‘Alternate Reality’ Where Facts Don’t Matter

‘There’s been moments in this election where I felt like I have been catapulted back to the Middle East where political candidates, politicians, sometimes operate in this alternate reality where the facts don’t matter’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT: 
GHATTAS: "He seems to be operating in an alternate reality where some of the facts that are simply facts that have been individual — video taped and documents don’t exist. There’s been moments in this election where I felt like I have been catapulted back to the Middle East where political candidates, politicians, sometimes operate in this alternate reality where the facts don’t matter. Where there’s violence in their language and where nothing sticks because the bond between them and their supporters seems unbreakable because it comes from a sort of place of unquestioned loyalty that they have for the candidate or the politician but when it comes to Ukraine and what Mr. Trump said it is very troubling because as many people have remarked this is the language Mr. Putin has used himself."
