“You can’t handle the truth!”
With his daily barrage of lies and distortions about the coronavirus pandemic, one might think that is just what Donald Trump would have us believe of the American public. That we can’t handle the truth
The truth is, it is Trump who can’t.
And it’s awful.
A common grifter in a place of power is a lethal combination.
The awful truth is that’s where we are folks. Because he comes by his lying honestly, he has no frame of reference for truth. He mangles the truth with the ease of a snake-oil salesman, and the black empty heart of a psychopath.
If Trump is, as he claims a wartime president then he is a war criminal with blood on his hands.
No. Mr. Trump did not create the virus. But his arrogance, pettiness, and propaganda along with gross mismanagement and manipulations will cause the death of hundreds of thousands of our fellow citizens.
Trump is a disaster, as lethal as the virus and his dangerous lies spread as fast.
We crave leadership. We crave and need truth. They are as essential to our survival as a COVID 19 vaccine.
Plain and simple his handling of this crisis is plain awful.
That is the awful truth.
He will not be the only one accountable Sally.
There is enough blame to go around
I agree. No longer can I watch the Back To The Future sequel where a version of this creature rules the town and wrecks it, and then it gets better in the end. I wouldn’t believe it anymore.
I have not seen that sequel, but there is no happy ending to this I fear.

Who knows? Maybe all the stupid will get flushed away and the smart will thrive again.
It is so odd to me that I had all these ideas deacdes ago that we were all going in an okay direction as a culture, even though I saw the consumerism and sexism and all, but I figured that since we all knew it, we’d all do something about it…

Called to account, he lies about uttering his documented-on-TV lies, challenging journalists’ professionalism. Then brags about his ratings. Who gets away with this? Who allows this insanity to remain unchecked? People are at their wit’s end. The pandemic is terrifying; the Compounder in Chief is making it more so.

We are all bearing witness to a pathological liar. Lawrence O’ Donnell tweeted:
“What kind of pathological liar lies about his lies to people who have video recordings of the lies he’s lying about and who actually read his previous lies to him word for word as he tries to lie about those lies?”
You nailed it on this one Sally! Hope all is well with you and yours.
Thanks!We are hanging in there. Nerves are really on edge here in NY but taking it day by day. Hope you are well too.
