Just when you thought our Dear Leader might run out of ways to misrepresent the facts of any given topic, he comes up with new and unique ways to tell lies. And some of them just seem to be told so he can stay consistent in his lying. But when you hear some of them, you have to wonder what his motivation is for lying when telling the truth would be easier and would appeal to more people. After all , he adores attention and wants the largest audience and Twitter followers of all time (even though half of his might be bots and fake accounts).
It’s a bit like someone I know said of another famous liar: She would rather walk up 12 fights of stairs to tell a lie from the rooftop than tell the truth in front of you on the sidewalk. It seems even worse than the disorder known as being a pathological liar. Maybe there are degrees or levels of dishonesty. Little white lies might be lazy; someone did not take the time to research or ask questions – so they spout some lies to act as if they know what they are saying. Bigger lies can actually cause harm or injury (or death) which is many times more serious and destructive than those little white lies. Are lies important? Does it matter if one person with a high profile and undue influence over millions of people tells lies? Is that worse than you or I telling lies (for whatever sick reason) with frequency.
Since there are plenty of sources to feast on the huge bounty of lies told by our President, I will not repeat or attempt to recount them here. But if you do not accept that he is continually lying and do not believe his critics who claim he is dishonest, what is your problem? Do you lack a critical part of your hearing mechanism? Are you blinded by his orange skin and hair? Were you so afraid of women and/or blacks with some semblance of power that you were willing to vote for a corrupt, racist, abusive child of a man?
Once you were asked if you would choose to have health insurance or a white male in the White House and you chose no health insurance so you could have your while male. When that black President, Barak Hussien Obama, produced a flawed but effective health care system that added many millions into coverage that had none before, you called him a Muslim and wanted to wash that stain from our history and heritage. You support the wholesale removal of health and safety restrictions on polluting industries and are OK with unlimited drilling for oil and gas near the sacred site of Chaco Cultural Center or above the Arctic Circle. You might believe your Dear Leader is above the law and should not have to answer to the other two branches of government, even though there is confirmed evidence that he accepted help in getting elected and is probably literally an illegitimate President.
You seem to buy the BS that he is the best negotiator and a very successful businessman although his list of failed businesses is longer than can fit on a single page. You wanted Trump Casinos, Trump Airlines, Trump University degrees and Trump Steaks to hold onto. Where are they now?
My amateur writing skills do not do justice to the faults and shortcomings of that man. He is so vile and crooked that he cannot distinguish between right and wrong. He cannot see beyond himself such that any question becomes framed as how does this or that affect him? No matter that he is in a position of power and could help millions of people out of poverty, malnutrition, failing educational systems and a drug crisis that is killing thousands. What has he done about regulating gun sales? You must have a license to cut hair, drive a car or sell a house. But you do not need any such thing to own a gun in America. That is something he could fix tomorrow. Does he even know how little he would have to do in order to become a good guy to millions of Americans? They would forgive him his shortcomings if he would just fix one thing they want him to fix. Democrats would even vote for honest and helpful Executive Branch policy efforts that were humane and good for the common man. But that would not support his need to have enemies and keep tilting at windmills.
You did not come to this Santa Fe residential real estate blog to read my rantings about Trump did you? No apology. You can stop any time you want to. Nobody is going to tell you what to do or think here. My usual recommendation is to gather all the facts and allow the facts to help you arrive at a direction or a decision. Those facts allow you to feel strong in your convictions and stand tall against the winds of bullshit blowing around.
