Trump and followers: ‘He lies, they lie’

One day, I drove to the county clerk’s office to change my Democratic Party affiliation to Unaffiliated.

Why? The leader of the Democratic Party at the time, Bill Clinton, lied to me.

He shook his finger at the camera, looked right at me and said, “I never had sexual relations with that woman.”

It turns out he indeed had some kind of kinky, Oval Office sexcapade with “that woman,” a consenting adult to his well-documented Bill foolery. But he lied to me.

Fast forward to Don Trump. I watched his remarks outside the courtroom, where a woman was first awarded $5 million by a jury of his (and her) peers because he lied. After the verdict, Trump looked into the camera and said, I swear on my children, I never met this woman. Whoa! What did he say?

I swear on my children? Don, here’s an old picture of you and the plaintiff, who just scored $5 million.

His faithful say she’s the liar, not the famous guy who said he can grab women by their unmentionables.

Trump lost the 2020 election. Period He can’t prove he won and his followers can’t prove it either. He lies, they lie.

The ninth commandment in the “good book” says, “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.” This principle includes all forms of lying..

Why are Trump and his followers liars? The truth will set you free and liars can go to hell. (It’s in the good book.)
