Unless he was lying Donald Trump was in Ohio yesterday. Like anytime he appears in public he told a large number of lies and distortions. He said work had begun on his precious Mexican border wall. It hasn’t. What he said was new construction was actually some repairs being done to an old wall.
He seemed to take credit for the initial success of the new Roseanne show. He took credit for all economic improvements and said we had never had an economy this good. Well, others get most of the credit and yes, we’ve had economic periods far better than what we now have.
This past week was not comforting. Trump’s false information and lunacy wagon rolled on at full nonsense. Rachel Maddow did a revealing segment on the dishonesty for profit of the National Enquirer and other check out stand tabloid magazines. Breitbart dishonesty still held a seat at the right arm of Trump, and Vice News did an interview with the current leader of the asylum and reigning leader of the war on truth, Alex Jones. And, if you listen closely you can still hear the whiny little bitch, Rush Limbaugh, whimpering from his den of darkness.
That there is such a profitable market for such extreme entertainment does not speak well of us or our future. Add to the mix that Alex Jones said to Vice that we ain’t seen anything yet.
And by the way, check out my recent story about the website that’s keeping track of all Trump’s lies.
We are living in a post truth era and many of us seem to be enjoying it.
