Real news, fake president. Given the orange clown’s attack on the First Amendment, I think the following quote from David Brinkley is timely: ”Numerous politicians have seized absolute power and muzzled the press. Never in history has the press seized power and muzzled the politicians.”
I was going to give the current total of administration lies, however, the last time I did that, the total had been surpassed by the time my letter was published. What is really scary is that between 30 and 40 percent of people surveyed believe the lies. I hate to think P.T. Barnum was right when he said “a sucker is born every minute,” but maybe he was.
Whenever I hear the president speak, I am reminded of the saying “as phony as a $3 bill.” When he is asked a question that he does not want to answer, he attacks the person asking the question or gives some nonsensical answer. The president continues to say, in response to questions about his shady past, “I am a businessman.” Businessmen have taken actions, which required antitrust laws, environmental laws, anti-discrimination laws, etc.
The Cuyahoga River in Ohio was so polluted that it caught fire a total of 13 times from 1868 to 1969. One would assume the pollution was caused by “businessmen.” The clown is in fine company.
