A President Who Believes He Is Entitled to His Own Facts - The New York Times
“He’s got a personal relationship,” Mr. Hayden said, “and he’s built it himself, with three heads of state who have murdered somebody within another person’s country within the last year.”

Crank magnetism
Crank magnetism also denotes the tendency — even for otherwise "lone issue" cranks — to accumulate more crank beliefs over time. You know that old saying about not being so open-minded that your brain falls out? People with crank magnetism didn't pay attention to that. Crank magnetism is an important stepping stone on the path towards being wrong all of the time. Its opposite is the stopped clock (which is when otherwise overly credulous people actually find some crankery that they won't believe in, and may even actively denounce it).
