LIAR, LIAR, PANTS ON FIRE
I continue to be astonished when I see President Trump's ardent supporters continuing to display their unbounded loyalty at the never-ending series of cheering sessions Trump so ardently savors. There is little doubt that he is adored by those who have bought into his assertion that major media is the enemy of the people.
Mr. President, our advertising driven media are controlled by "the people," Either you produce a viable product, whether it be soap or the administration of laws that are just and effective, or you are swept into the "ash heap of history" (From 14th Century Italian writer Plutarch, and among others, such as President Ronald Regan, when referring to Communism.)
Thomas Jefferson said that given the choice between government and the press, he would prefer the latter.
Despots have forever sought to mesmerize their fan-base into supporting lies; especially commandments to believe only that which despots perceive as the truth.
The truth is not in Donald J. Trump. According to the Washington Post, in 558 days, Trump made 4,229 false or misleading claims. The New York Times printed links to their "Opinion" section so that all may read thousands of falsehoods he has made and the true facts of the matters in question.
The Huffington Post, one of the most respected websites sites on the worldwide web, specified 71 false or misleading statements Trump made in two weeks.
He recently claimed that NBC had edited the interview made by Lester Holt after the President's inauguration (Trump recently charged that "The network had been caught "fudging" my tape on Russia and they were hurt badly.") There is no evidence supporting the claim that anyone edited the tape.
By Labor Day weekend, it became more obvious that Trump wants to make the Department of Justice his personal political weapon, by excoriating Attorney General Sessions for the recent indictments of two Republican Members of Congress for wrongdoing.
Chris Collins of New York was charged with insider trading (the charge that put Martha Stewart in jail) and Congressman Duncan Hunter of California was charged with diverting more than $250,000 in campaign contributions to personal expenses, such as family vacations, groceries, theater tickets and school tuition, and failing to report one of the most extensive raids on Campaign Contribution funds ever made. You too, would be stunned if you read detailed accounts of the Hunters' World Class Splurge, described in a 48-page indictment handed down by a Federal Grand Jury in San Diego.
All will be more understandable of the seriousness of the charges if you do a search of the two representatives' names on any browser. Donald Trump does not want you to do that.
