Letter: Who will be the winner in the war of lies?
We are now engaged in a great political war testing whether this liar or that liar will win out.
One of President Donald Trump’s lies was that Mexico would pay for the wall. Mexico said, “No way.” Trump then asked Congress for $7 billion or $8 billion. Congress said, “No way.” Trump then ordered a partial government shutdown, hurting thousands of U.S. workers. Some, I believe, were Trump supporters. That didn’t win for Trump, either.
Former FBI Director Jim Comey supports the U.S. Constitution, not the president. So he was fired.
Michael Cohen and Paul Mannafort lied for Trump, were fined and given prison sentences. They didn’t learn anything from the supporters of former President Richard Nixon.
Some claim ignorance of the law — a poor excuse. They have lawyers to advise them.
What are we leaving to future generations? A lying president, attorney general, Congress and, possibly, Supreme Court?
Let us cut out this lying cancer now.
Be a 2019 minuteman or -woman. Make them proud.
Will the Supreme Court leave the decision on Trump up to a vote? Or will the justices judge Trump on his actions?
To mention a few, the Trump administration has kidnapped and had border guards take crying children away from their crying parents and shipped the children without a word of where they went. Some were returned.
Another case was partially shutting down the government because he didn’t get his way.
Another was, and is, the banning of people from several Muslim countries from coming to the U.S.
Trump also picked and supported an attorney general, William Barr. Barr incited the world by his first description of the Mueller report. He now joins Trump’s lying supporters.
The way things look to me, Trump’s idols are the dictators of Russia, North Korea and China.
As a body, let’s stand up to Trump and say, “This is our responsibility, not yours.”
Let us always be the land of the free and the home of the brave.
