We now have a dictator. Or at least, someone trying to be one. Donald Trump is exhibiting every trait that a dictator could possibly exhibit. But the thing that bugs me the most is the lies. The constant unceasing barrage of lies. I don’t think the man is capable of telling the truth to save his life.
The Washington Post has reported that in his first 1,226 days, President Trump has made 19,127 false or misleading claims. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2020/06/01/president-trump-made-19127-false-or-misleading-claims-1226-days/
On June 1, as demonstrators gathered and marched in Washington and around the country to protest the killing of George Floyd by the Minneapolis police, President Trump, in a brief speech in the White House Rose Garden, called for states to use the National Guard to “dominate the streets” and promised that if they didn’t, “I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them.” Federal forces then used tear gas and stun grenades on peaceful protesters to clear a path for him to walk from the White House to nearby St. John’s Episcopal Church for a photo op with a Bible as prop.
