I have always said that people will believe a lie before they believe the truth. It’s because a well crafted lie will say what a person wants to hear, whereas sometimes we do not want to hear the truth.
So I wondered how do reconcile my believe that Donald tells truth, and Hillary is the big liar. Using such logic Hillary should be the big winner. However I believe Donald will be the biggest winner. Something is wrong with my thought process.
Then watching Donald talk about the wall, I realized that Donald Trump was telling the biggest most preposterous lie ever. He was going to make the Mexicans pay for it. Harumph! You just don’t charge your neighbor for your stuff. I had a brief moment when I thought that Donald would charge for his big beautiful door, but that would be completely unworkable. Nope it’s a big lie.
I don’t really have a problem with the wall itself, Robert Frost himself said that walls make for good neighbors. The lie itself is a way to start discussion, or so I think. I am to buy a new car and you are going to pay for it. Fat chance. I’m sure some people believe that Mexico will pay for the wall. In their mind, as long as they do not have to pay for it, it is good. With accounting magic you could probably prove it on paper.
Just for the record, I do not think this is the only time Donald has stretched the truth. However most of his statements are pretty solidly based.
