You know, in politics, spin and framing and argument or making a case for a certain course of action, is all a part the job. Sometimes, issues don’t have a clear right or wrong answer. Life would be a lot simpler if they did. Most of don’t expect everyone to agree with us all the time Putting aside politics or preference…or reason for that matter, let’s be crystal clear. Donald Trump is a liar. What he does is not political “spin” or hyperbole, he intentionally and willfully lies to the press and to the public.
I’ll even do you one better: Donald Trump is a pathological liar. He has an acute psychological problem with being honest or genuine. He is not to be trusted, in any form or fashion, and I don’t even think the press should cover him as much as he does when is obviously just trying to rally his base of support…but that’s another blog for another day!
The Washington Post has been tracking all presidential lies since Trump took office. I mean literally, each and every documented falsehood since took up occupancy in the White House. As of Sunday, June 7th, Trump has made 10,796 false or misleading claims. That’s a staggering average rate of almost 12.5 lies a day…7 days a week.

Heaven help us.
