Four Weeks In

Number 17 of a series

The beat goes on, the beat goes on
Drums keep pounding
A rhythm to the brain
La de da de de, la de da de da

La de da de da, indeed! Here is number 17:

17. Jan. 25, 2017 — Interview with ABC’s David Muir

The claim: “Look, Barack Obama — if you look back, eight years ago when he first ran — he was running for office in Chicago … and he was laughing at the system because he knew all of those votes were going to him … he was smiling and laughing about the vote in Chicago.”

In fact: This is a gross mischaracterization of Obama’s remarks and behaviour during the 2008 campaign. He did not laugh or smile about the voting system in Chicago, and he did not suggest in any way that he was going to be receiving fraudulent votes. He acknowledged that his party had sometimes “monkeyed” with Chicago elections “in the past.”

This is five days into the Trump administration, and we are up to number 17 already. When is this all going to come to an end? You may ask—when there is no skin left.

Keep reading. And may Jesus have mercy on our souls.
