Donald Trump is a liar. He’s also a U.S. citizen.
I cheered when I first learned Twitter called Donald Trump on misleading Tweets about mail-in voting. About time, I thought.
The man cannot open his mouth or move his fingers without lying, it seems, and people believe the untruths he scatters around like so much shot out of a shell. Say it over and over and over enough times and people will believe it – that seems to be Trump’s strategy for just about everything.
It’s worked well for him so far. Look at how many people he got to vote for him in 2016, people who now are willing to defend him with their lives, literally, by going out in the midst of a plague with no thought of protecting themselves or others from infection. No social distancing. No masks. Nothing but guns and flags, U.S. and Confederate.
So, yeah, I was glad to see Trump’s favorite social media platform rein him in a bit. Finally.
But then, by the next morning, I was thinking about 1984.
