Update (20190811): Because of this post that refers to a so-called gaffe by Joe Biden, I’ve not only added a reference to this quote but changed the title as well. This mentality is much more widespread than some troubled bimbo from Brown U (see video link below). Biden’s quote (my bold):
Everybody knows who Donald Trump is. Even his supporters know who he is. We got to let him know who we are. We choose unity over division. We choose science over fiction. We choose truth over facts.
The original title was “Facts are Facts, but Emotions are Real“, a bit taken from this video (it’s a YouTube video, so who knows how long it will be available).
This mentality is what we’re dealing with.
