    The nonsense is strong with you this morning.
    When society throws away the Truth Tellers prepare for the worst, for it is surely coming.
    Open your eyes and your mind and then speak truth..........That is the only way forwards.

    EXACTLY!

    Trump says demonstrably false things he doesn't mean.
    But it's okay because he says these things for our own good.

    We should all be good little children and just go along with daddy.

    When will these libturds wake up and realize that saying false things to to influence people is not lying?
    Sheesh!

    [or not]
    I may be wrong.

    Yes.

    I see you’ve completely abandoned it.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    When Trump first mentioned 'The Wall', he got cheers. He liked the cheers so he continued to mention it. When those who were running against him brought up the fact that it was unrealistic, because of the cost, his response was "it won't cost us anything, Mexico is going to pay".

    You are now saying that when you heard him speak those words, you interpreted it to mean "American taxpayers would pay".
    Wow.
    That is impressive.
    You are correct. He did not lie to you. You knew what he meant all along.

    So he said Mexico would pay for the wall I'm guessing 100 times or more, and wrote a memo explaining how he'd make them pay directly for the wall, but now you're telling us it's false that Trump ever said such a thing. We used to be better, and called lies what they are.

    Here's an article discussing the memo:

    I don't think you're parsing words so that 'writing a check' is distinguishable from, different than, a "one time payment." Right?

    Sucks when you can't process that your cult leader is lying.
