In “Trump attacks Comey, ‘total thieves’ at FBI” [June 16, A4] President Donald Trump wonders, “Who’s lied more than Comey?”
All he has to do is look in the mirror. From lying about President Obama’s birthplace to lying that the Democrats passed a law necessitating the separation of children from parents trying to cross the border from Mexico, Trump has told more lies than can be counted. The true shame is that every Republican in Congress and every person who supports Trump actually accepts this behavior. They refuse or are incapable of holding him accountable. Their own behavior weakens the country, undermines our democracy and hurries us toward a dictatorship where reality is what Trump says it is.
Remember the quote, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” We are already there.
