The Grossest with the Mostest

Congratulations, Donald!

In 466 days, President Trump has made 3,001 false or misleading claims.

Not only have you passed the three thousand lie milestone, but your daily prevarication rate is accelerating rapidly as well.

Meanwhile, from Chris Matthews via Politico: “I’m Not Sure Trust Is What People Want from Trump.”

Well, no shit, Sherlock.

With his excursion into birtherism, Trump learned, and we all learned, that there is a very large audience for unabashed racism, loudly proclaimed by a celebrity. Certainly, among the target audience there is a degree of economic discontent, a degree of reaction to elite disdain, and so on, and so on. But it’s becoming clearer with each passing day that racism is at the root of it all. That is what makes Trump’s lies so comforting.
