I’ve read that 40% of Mr. Trump’s supporters don’t care that he lies. The underlying question is when did not telling the truth become acceptable to the forty percent. If they accept that their president can lie, with support, then they must also lie themselves and to themselves.
That leaves 60% of those supporters do care. Bravo!
Telling the truth has been ingrained in American social structure since the beginning of our republic.
All people, supporters, and non-supporters can deal with the truth as the benchmark of discernment. Truth advances understanding. Lies advance myth and mistrust. All of us, supporters and detractors, are defrauded by lies and deluded by fact-less statements.
Lies make life’s choices a delusion. Truth makes life difficult, uncomfortable, vulnerable and embarrassing, but cleansing. Who hasn’t felt better after admitting to a lie?
It’s not only that Mr. Trump lies all the time, but it’s also that he’s the president. The president is the beacon to the world for what America stands.
Tell the truth, Mr. President. Forgiveness is an abundant trait in our diverse America.
