Wednesday’s New York Times fact checking experts have revealed that trump has changed his tactics in his address to Congress Tuesday night. Instead of telling big fat whopper lies, he’s reverting to the time-honored standard of small lies and half-truths favored by most traditional politicians. This is progress, but will it hold? Time will tell. This is, after all, trump.
Obviously, I’m not ready to capitalize the president’s name, nor am I willing to say his name in the same sentence with the word “president,” but I feel a little less embarrassed to be an American. This is all better, but the bar has been set so low. I listen to a politician’s words with interest, but I don’t believe them. I believe their actions, so we’ll have to see what trump does.
