Trump’s Big Basket of Lies

One thing we need to understand up front, President Trump doesn’t have to have committed an indictable offense in order to be defeated in 2020. Disliking him is enough for the process to reject him. And he is immensely disliked. It is highly unlikely that an impeachment process could achieve its objective. Hence, we have to wait for 2020 and then defeat him so roundly that even his blind followers see the light.

The president had this remarkable sitdown with the New York Times a few days ago down in Florida and bubbled up with reactions to just about any questions the Times asked. What were they? You already know, like you have known for months, what the man says about everything.

This sort of says what you need to know about that event.

“A defiant President Trump declared on Thursday that he has all but given up on negotiating with Congress over his border wall and will build it on his own even as he dismissed any suggestions of wrongdoing in the investigations that have ensnared his associates.”

He listens a bit and then he unleashes a whole new flurry of lies to try to shift attention away from what he has done. His method of operation has always been like this. Think about it this way, here was a businessman who simply did not pay his bills, putting his creditors through the bullshit of lawsuits to collect their money.

Here is how The New Yorker characterized the president.

“Shortly after 7 a.m. on Thursday, President Trump began doing what increasingly passes for his workday: looking at the television and tweeting about it. “So great to watch & listen to all these people who write books & talk about my presidential campaign and so many others things related to winning, and how I should be doing ‘it,’ ” he tweeted. “As I take it all in, I then sit back, look around, & say ‘gee, I’m in the White House, & they’re not!’ ” This statement is as close as Trump comes to a governing philosophy.” 

What more do you need to know?

It’s interesting that so many evangelicals believe in this man, who is an embodiment of evil if ever I saw one. But that says more about them than it says about him.
