“Liar, liar ...

pants on fire.”  

It's one thing to embellish your rhetoric a bit but to tell an outright lie is never acceptable. This is especially true when those lies come from the President of the United States .

The thing that I find amazing is how the powers that be at the White House spin what he says. They gloss over his tweets and his lies and try to convince us that it's all part of his quirky and endearing personality. I find this frightening.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal recently Trump declared, “I got a call from the head of the Boy Scouts saying it was the greatest speech that was ever made to them, and they were very thankful.” This proved to be an outright lie but when the White House Press Sec. Sanders was questioned about this she replied … “THAT'S A PRETTY BOLD ACCUSATION.” and then went on to say that the conversations took place in person and not over the phone... i.e., excusing the lie and white washing the whole thing as a mere misinterpretation.

But isn't a BOLD ACCUSATION exactly what is needed when a lie is told?  How can we ever trust anything that this administration tells us if they continue to cover up for this ego driven man. His new Chief of Staff General Kelly has made it known that his first loyalty goes to his country ... with number 2 being loyalty to the President.  It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the coming months.

The rhetoric with respect to North Korea is scary, Ginnie! Let's hope there is someone rational in the higher levels of that government. However, nobody can control his twitter finger. Will the world find itself in another world war via twitter?

North Korea has us all holding our breath. What a scary, untrustworthy, leader we are stuck with. Sigh.

How this man still has supporters is beyond me, but he does, and they are very loyal.

If you're NOT scared, perhaps you don't understand the situation! I saw that on a bumper sticker not too long ago.

There is no way to muzzle this overgrown child... lets just hope someone can shut him up before it is too late.

The people who make excuses for what he says must think we're really stupid to believe their spin.

A sad situation for the USA when we cannot look upon our chief executive with pride.
