1/ We can't. Trump will say this.

The Rand Institute study on dealing with a Firehose of Lies gives the remedy: Prepare the population for the onslaught of lies. (link in next tweet)

That way, when Trump says, "It was rigged!" the nation does a collective eye roll. . .

2/ . . . and we think about the next inauguration.

Trump will not want to give up power when he loses. But let's deal with the problems one at a time. First, we have to make sure he loses.

3/ Exactly. Staying focused is key.

I also advise not going down "what if" rabbit holes—like the Firehose of Falsehood and Firehose of Outrageousness that will wear us out and discourage us.

Both are wins for Putin and Trump.
