Liar-ing, a settled Trump character trait

May 9, 2021 § Leave a comment

Donald Trump, we know, is a liar—not just in the sense that he has told lies (which most of us do sometimes), but in the sense of being an inveterate lie-teller, thousands upon thousands of lies, a man whose propensity to falsehood is one of the leading hallmarks of his character. Here too, terminology is interesting: the transition from particular wrongdoing—telling this or that lie—to “liar” as a settled character trait.7

I have yet to discover any truly intentionally humorous thing Trump has ever said. He seems to be lacking the particular human gene.

Why is Trump so hateful? Because he knows he ainʻt shit.

Trump and bribes, of course.

And the lack of effective law enforcement allows the small time crook to become president.


Trump ensickens us all and is a perfect example of corporation culture.

The truly awful ruling class…


This is what a criminal regime would do, wouldn’t it? Hamper the investigation.

Trump not yet found guilty…

The AG is a political appointee of the person being investigated. Hardly an objective source. I’ll wait for the full report. Trump has admitted in civil court to defrauding students of “Trump University” and paid out $25M. He’s a con and a grifter, nothing more, nothing less. Why was his campaign even talking to the Russians? Under what theory of patriotism is that even acceptable? It is tantamount to treason. If there were a war on it would be treason. People see what they want to see. I see a corrupt business person who is a tax cheat, a demonstrated liar, racist, sexual predator. This is Trump mocking a disabled reporter. Explain it away as much as you feel the need to but the media didn’t invent the photograph. Mocking the crippled…. He’ll mock dead children sooner or later. wouldn’t put it past him. How much respect is such a person entitled to? Mocking someone’s disability. We probably shouldn’t discuss this matter as it poisonous and he truly brings out worst in both his supporters and opponents. I have nothing more to say on the matter. Trump’s regime isn’t over. I’ll wait for the full report as it is premature to come to any permanent conclusions without the facts. Nothing to get excited about he’s just another crooked politician enriching himself at the public trough to which he has invited all his family and they have their snouts and all four legs in it. Not unlike Clinton I and II I’d note. I’ll make a prediction that history will see his administration as the most corrupt since Harding’s. And I actually like a bit of his foreign policy and think Clinton II’s foreign policy would have been much worse.

Where Am I?
