This is what occurs when someone thinks that if they do or say something wrong repeatedly, some uninformed people will believe it.

I can say it but I don’t want to say it but some people said it was the best speech ever made by a president in Europe. But I did not say that I’m just quoting other people. Who are these other people? Are they also clueless?
