Well, Mr. President, you’ve crossed a fascinating threshold so early during your time in the only public office you’ve ever sought.
The Washington Post tally of lies/misstatements/fibs/prevarications has just crossed the 10,000 mark. Are congratulations in order, Mr. President? If so, then I offer them to you.
Your lying — and I’ll stick with that description for the purposes of this blog — has transcended anything many of us can remember.
I’m old enough to recall how presidents have hidden the truth from us. They do so because of because of perceived national security issues that could put the nation in peril if they were to reveal the “whole truth.”
The Vietnam War, the Cold War, specific crises (such as 9/11) all have produced incidences of presidents keeping certain information from the public.
Not you, Mr. President. You lie at every opportunity. You lie when you don’t need to lie. You’re penchant for making things up simply is mind-blogging/blowing in the extreme.
I have to wonder how you live with yourself. Oh, never mind. I know the answer to that. Your entire life prior to becoming a politician was predicated on self-enrichment. So, I gather that to further your own self you feel as though you had to lie to make yourself look better than you are . . . which I have determined isn’t all that difficult a chore.
Why, you even lied about the size of one of those buildings that has your name on it, inflating it by 10 stories.
You make these outrageous claims of being the “most” this or that, or the “best” at whatever you endeavor to do. One cannot categorize those as lies, per se.
However, you are really and truly good at lying.
Well done, Mr. President.
I just want to note that lying your way through life is not going to “make America great again.” Really. That, sir, is the truth.
