The Trump and his staff's propensity for telling lies to the public is disturbing because it appears they really believe the lies they tell. It is also disturbing that they make excuses for their lies and use euphemisms to describe a lie. They cannot call a lie by its name. A lie is a lie is a lie. Period.

The Bowling Green Massacre, promises to release income tax records after the audit, alternative-facts, whatever it was that supposedly happened in Sweden last Friday, the number of electoral collage votes, the size of the Inaugural audience, why Flynn was fired, etc. are all examples of the Trump's lies and those of his senior staff. The list is long and disturbing.

The most disturbing thing about this is that their lies cause the public to lose confidence in anything they say. What will happen if their is a real threat or crisis being reported by the White House and nobody believes them? Is this the Trump's idea of national security?

People lie to hide the truth. What is the Trump hiding?

I agree TL that normally that is what would and should happen and has with me for sure. I don't believe a word either he or his staff or even the admin says. However, his supporters get their news from Twitter, Facebook, and Fox News and hang onto his every word.

Did you see where his communications guy (don't know title) is going after the internet? I'll go get a link.

All kinds of speculation about what he is hiding - tax fraud, unscrupulous dealings, what groups he is tied to, not paying taxes we know about, how he got Christie to lower his tax bill, how often he doesn't pay his help, how he did not pay the Deutsche bank what he owed them, and somehow he sued them under some weird law. And still they loan him money?? Why would they do that? And how much he is leveraged and what his net worth really is when the liabilities are added in etc. Conflicts of interest with the Chinese banks too - actually conflicts of interest everywhere which he refuses to correct and gets away with it.

A man must be excessively stupid, as well as uncharitable, who believes there is no virtue but on his own side. Addison
