Trump’s lies are one of his most defining features. It’s clear it’s pathological with him (The compulsive urge to lie about matters big and small, regardless of the situation.). It’s on record, there is no doubt, the only question is why we are completely incapable of doing anything about it?

Want to Make a Lie Seem True? Say It Again. And Again. And Again
Welcome to the “illusory truth effect,” a glitch in the human psyche that equates repetition with truth.
This is not America anymore. Not even close. I am Alice and I have gone down the rabbit hole. What’s been made clear since trump stole the presidency is that we have no ability whatsoever to deal with a lunatic in the White House.
The list of things that are wrong with this is so extensive that I couldn’t begin to cover it all. Let’s start with the first issue, which is that this “poll” is coming from the person who is supposed to be representing all Americans, even those that don’t agree with him. Every day, all day long Trump makes it clear that he does not in any way represent all Americans, he represents a very small minority of very vocal Americans.
“I see Americans of every party, every background, every faith who believe that we are stronger together: black, white, Latino, Asian, Native American; young, old; gay, straight; men, women, folks with disabilities, all pledging allegiance under the same proud flag to this big, bold country that we love. That’s what I see. That’s the America I know!” – Barack Obama
There is no way that the same person that called for that “poll” is a person that is capable of leading ALL Americans. It’s clearly not even a person who cares about ALL Americans. It’s a person who can’t even conceive of caring for ALL Americans.
“There’s not a liberal America and a conservative America – there’s the United States of America.”– Barack Obama
To see how deeply Trump cares only for those that support him, please take a moment to read:
