I've been assured by Trump supporters that this is no big deal because politicians lie all the time.

I think that they missed a few.

The Dog Ate My Homework: I've been assured by Trump supporters that this is no big deal because politicians lie all the time.


When talking about other politicians, "all the time" means "occasionally", i.e. continually.

When talking about Trump, "all the time" means "ALL the time", i.e., continuously.

That's quite an accomplishment.  And he says no one wants to pay attention to his accomplishments.

Which I guess makes that another lie.

Only 1,000?  Shiat, I thought he'd be dangerously close to breaking all the counters that used a mere 16-bit variable by now.

Of course, he is already creating problems in the scale of things:

The fact that an elected official can commit such fraud and not face any legal consequences shows our failing of our Government to self regulate

Outright lying to the people while bashing and doing everything he can to delegitimize the Press is nothing short of a disinformation campaign seen in ruthless Autocracies and has NO PLACE in a Democracy

He was elected by people who had full knowledge that he is allergic to the truth and will lie even when there's no point to it.  He contradicted himself, his advisors, and just plain ol' facts every day.  And those f*cking turds ate it up gladly, because "he tells it like it is."  Oh, and anyone who says otherwise is Lugenpresse, I mean "fake news" even when they're directly quoting him.

Regardless, there's no reason to lament his not being removed from office for doing exactly what got him elected in the first place.

Aren't these the same people that claim that Trump is not a politician?

Even the failing Washington Post agrees I am a record-breaking President! #MAGA

Its still burns me up that Trump faced no consequences for claiming, up until the last moment, that the election was being actually, physically rigged - and as a result almost starting a violent revolution by his hardcore supporters. Apparently he gets a pass on that one.

And his freedom loving supporters LOVE him for it.

It helps if you just remember that whatever Trump accuses others of doing...he's the one who's actually doing it. At some level he knows what he's doing is wrong, but his conscious mind won't permit him to admit it to himself, but he can pass it off to others to ease that tiny voice in the back of his mind.

Borscht, blintz for dessert and a white Russian or if you're into renaming something to go with the times, white national.

I bet FDR had about 15% that number, and he was elected FOUR TIMES.  Well done, trumpy.  Please eat shiat.

That averages out to more than five lies A DAY. That seems to be a lot of lying. I understand that politicians lie from time to time but geez, what does this guy take us for, idiots?

If he doesn't quit or get kicked out, we will get to go through what we already went through with President Trump ... seven more times.

We actually just hit seven months. Only forty one (or eighty nine) left 🎉

Sorry, no "Both Sides" when the volume of lies is so high that all real world comparisons fail.
 
2017-08-22 04:43:04 PM  
Yeah, but for every 1,000 false claims by Trump, that's 1,000 butthurt libs, so basically 30,000 snowflakes are feeling the MAGA so far. And besides, revealing too many facts is a sign of weakness. Never, NAVER reveal what you know.
 
2017-08-22 04:43:08 PM  
Wait - you're telling me that President Trump has told a few falsehoods?
Why wasn't I told of this sooner (besides me being in a coma & all)?

That's just over 5 per day for 6 months
So, almost everything he says out loud for the record.
