In Trump America gall is good. Facts are considered frivolous and lies are alternate realities.
It's not just in Washington that we see this trio of untruths flourish. Televangelists - who always seem to be on the edge of being cult leaders - manage to make millions of dollars from brain-washed congregations.
One Louisiana-based televangelist, Jesse Duplantis, is asking his followers to donate money for a $54 million jet that can "go anywhere in the world in one stop."
Mind you, his loyal followers have already bought him three jets. But apparently they aren't up to his standards because they had to stop and fuel up more often.
Damn! The worries of a working cult leader. Duplantis wants this new jet because it goes further than the other three. He claims that if Jesus were here today he'd ride his jet instead of a donkey!
The reason Duplantis needs a private jet in the first place? He doesn't want to ride with the demons in commercial airlines.
Say what? Demons? You gotta be kidding me. But it's true. This sack of sanctimonious shit has his followers in the palm of his greedy hand.
He's not the only one. These days, televangelists seem to NEED jets to spread their false words. It takes pure gall, but there's no lack of it in your typical televangelist.
Then there's the right-wing evangelicals who are embracing Trump like the next messiah. They gladly set aside the facts about what Trump's doing, and has done, to divide this country.
Trump has set the standard for the rejection of truth in our society today. His supporters spread his lies like a virus in America.
At what point are the majority of Americans going to stand up for truth and reject the lies of a demagogue?
The answer lies in the midterms.
In order to stop Trump, Democrats need to retake the House of Representatives this November. That's the first step. The next one is impeaching the slimy bastard who has caused so much chaos in our country.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
