There’s no way I’m ever going to run out of these. Daniel Dale, with the Washington bureau of The Toronto Star, compiled a list of 80 fabrications by Donald Trump, all during the first four weeks of the new administration. That was so many days ago, and we have ceased expecting any truth from our president. It’s near pointless to continue putting Donald Trump’s lies on display. However, forge ahead I must. History is waiting. Here is number 57:
57. Feb. 9, 2017 — Private meeting with senators about Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch
The claim: “The president claimed that he and (Republican former senator Kelly) Ayotte both would have been victorious in the Granite State if not for the ‘thousands’ of people who were ‘brought in on buses’ from neighbouring Massachusetts to ‘illegally’ vote in New Hampshire.”
In fact: Such fraud did not happen.
Daniel Dale’s list has since grown. As of 3 April the count was up to 172. How long can our president keep this up? Better yet, how long can I keep this up?
Until there is no skin left.
