There are certain times in politics where I feel like Jacobim Mugatu from the movie Zoolander. “Doesn’t anyone notice this, I FEEL LIKE I AM TAKING CRAZY PILLS!!!”
If you ask fringe Trump voters why they plan to vote for him, many of them will say, “I just don’t trust Hillary”. Okay and you trust Donald Trump? That is like saying you don’t want a sex offender to babysit your children, and then hiring Subway Jared. Seriously though, have you paid attention to this election at all, or just repeating what your ignorant neighbor said? Every politician lies (and so does every single person on earth), there is no doubting that, but Trump lies more often and more severely than any other politician.
I will be the first to admit, Hillary Clinton comes off a little ‘too calculated’ and can be a complete robot at times. But lets be honest, it’s not the worst quality in a candidate. After all, the President does represent a diverse nation of 319 million people, leads global negotiations that can alter the course of history, and considered by many, the leader of the free world… so shouting every brain fart that comes into your head, probably isn’t a good idea. Regardless of Clinton’s robotic demeanor, Trump is everything a president should not be. Sure, Trump does not worry about his “political correctness”, but he also lacks factual correctness, conviction in his statements or any sense of humility.
Trump’s conviction is a major reason people want to vote for him. “He means what he says” is a common Trumpeter sound byte. In reality, no one knows how he really feels because he can flip flop on issues from day to day depending on whats popular in that very moment. While many politicians are famous for flip-flopping over the course of a 30 year career (Clinton, Obama, Mitt Romney, the list goes on), no one has changed their minds with the ease and frequency of Donald. The Daily Show highlighted this best in their segment called, “Imagining Donald Trump’s Cabinet”
“I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain.” Donald J. Trump, ladies and gentleman, the future President of the United States!
You cant make this stuff up, although The Donald is very good at that too. He pretty much makes up everything as he goes but prefaces his statements with “people are saying”, to add the illusion of credibility (illusion only stupid people cannot see through).
Anyone who says that Clinton lies more than Donald is grossly misinformed. It was not an opinion of mine when I stated Donald lies more often and more severely, it is a fact. Politifact.com did an analysis of 650 statements from Presidential candidates in the last year and here are some their findings.
Donald Trump has told more bold faced (pants on fire) lies than all other 21 candidates combined, and 78% of his statements are rated mostly false or worse, but Hillary is the one we can’t trust?!?
The most frustrating part about Donald’s lies, is that when confronted with irrefutable evidence that negates his claims, he lacks the humility to admit he was wrong. CNN’s Chris Cuomo articulated this perfectly in his interview with Paul Manafort (Trump Campaign Chairman) where he admitted a known truth that Melania Trump’s speech writers lifted some lines from Michelle Obama’s 2008 DNC speech.
So he lies more often, and more severely. He lacks real conviction and can flip flop on major issues from day to day. And lastly, he lacks any humility when confronted with mistakes or errors. But yet, he is still more honest and trustworthy than Clinton……..
