Here we are again, update five, and I’m beginning to think this president can’t open his mouth without legions of lies falling out! OK, I take that back. I’m not beginning to think it. I’ve thought it all along.
Here’s a couple off the top of my head.
- Today he said “who knew that health care could be so complicated.” Oh, really? I did think you knew that, or maybe that’s not a lie, it’s just ignorance? If so, you can’t ask us to believe you’re some great businessperson and in the next breath claim ignorance about the sector that takes up so much of the American economy. So let’s call it a lie. Link.
- Over the weekend, the Democrats elected a new committee chairperson, Tom Perez. Bernie Sanders favored Keith Ellison, who was also running for the post. So the Donald insists that this election was rigged, folks. Without providing a shred of evidence. No evidence? Then you’re lying, Trumpinocchio! Here’s the link.
And the best fib of the week:
- Trump claimed Sweden had apparently suffered a terrorist attack, when they did not. Link here.
Back next week!
I thought I’d do a regular feature on this, like a weekly update on the new president’s ongoing penchant for basically, lying about much of everything.
It may not be enough to do it once a week, but that’s all I have time to do. Hopefully, this will serve as a sort of record for me so I can focus my activism.
Since neither you nor I like things that are just asserted without any proof, I will list the source of where I got the lying information. Then you can make up your own mind whether to take it seriously or discount it. And I know there will be people who will – but I hope, dear reader, that you are not one of those who puts stock in liars.
This week – Jan 20 – 27: Trump lied about the crowd size at his inauguration. He lied to the CIA about who started his feud with intelligence agencies. Perhaps biggest of all, he lied about the fact that he lost the popular vote in the November election. He asserts that 3-5 million illegal voters voted (all for Hillary Clinton! imagine that) which is a demonstrably false lie.

See you next week.
