AWASH IN FALSEHOODS
WITH NO END IN SIGHT
Can you sum up 2017 in a famous quote?
I’m going with a line from Adolph Hitler. He’s the all-purpose stand-in for everybody you think is bad, and his enduring observation remains as fresh today as when first uttered…
“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”
Lord knows, that’s the assumption behind pretty much everything that’s been said about Donald Trump’s first year as President.
Yes, The Donald is given to flights of wild hyperbole and intemperate criticism. And yes, such things can involve an element of mischaracterization (not to say untruth).
But, could anything Trump has ever spoken or tweeted beat this Newsweek headline for total disregard of fact and proportion?…
“How Trump and the Nazis Stole Christmas to Promote White Nationalism”
Now that’s imaginative.
