It used to mean something very bad for a president to lie to the American people. Now, a president-elect is doing just that almost every day. It has become a daily decaying of who we are.
Yesterday’s tweet by our president-elect is his latest example of over-Trumpeting reality with his lies:
“In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally.”
In truth, no Electoral College landslide (Clinton is 38 votes below 270, Trump is 38 above)
In truth, the only clear fraud is from his Russian benefactors.
So, while he at present has no accountability, president-elect Trump at least needs a theme song. Here’s my candidate. Johnny Crawford’s “Your nose is gonna grow”.
Take a listen.
From 1958 to 1963, Johnny Crawford played Chuck Connors son, Mark McCain, in The Rifleman.
Here’s a few of the song’s relevant words…
“Go ahead, explain.
But remember, if you lie The boogie man’ll get you
And your nose is gonna grow.
“So remember, if you lie Everyone will know
Remember, if you lie Your nose is gonna grow
And everyone will know.”
We don’t know yet whether the lies are pathological or strategic…but we do know – either way – they are more dangerous for the U.S.
God help and bless America.
