Anyone Else Sick Of The Lies? Trump And Surrogates And GOP

Nothing but lie, after lie, after lie. All intended to impress Rush Limbaugh listeners, and Fox News watchers who don't care about what is true one bit.

This is a sad time in our country.

Nothing but an endless stream of lies by the "right" destroying our country, and the future of our planet.

I really don't know what to do.

We can't talk to these people. They live an an alternative universe where up is down, and Jesus would be happy with folks cutting food stamps for starving children.

This is just so sickening.

Every time a "Trump Supporter" gets on my teevee I have to change the channel. The lies are overwhelming, and I just don't want to hear any more of them.

2. I'm beyond sick of it and ashamed all at the same time

I wish this friggin' nightmare would go away, but it seems to getting worse and worse. There seems to be a huge effort out there to take down Hillary at all costs and put in a Putin puppet that threatens American democracy.

I remain optimistic, but am sad and angry. There's enough terrible stuff on Trump that he should have been disqualified months and months ago, but he keeps getting propped up.

3. It has been this way as long as I can remember.

I remember as far back as the Nixon era. This is nothing new. Whenever I see any republican on my TV, I change the channel, because I have long known that the only thing that will come out of their mouths is big, fat lies.

7. IMO it's has gone much farther than ever before. Never has the media served up billions

in free media, while failing to report on the criminal trump foundation, the purchase of attorneys general to drop investigations, the child rape allegations, and much more.

The media in this country is among the gravest dangerous we face. Their desperate perseveration on invented nothing burger scandal is destroying the democratic process.

13. They've reported on the Trump Foundation. There is a reason why they can't report about the child

 

rape case. A legal reason that has been explained here sorry I can't remember it. I'm not sure what everybody has been watching and reading but the media has either denounced him directly or you can read between the lines. It's been mostly negative and outright damning press about Trump.


He will be held accountable for his Trump Foundation empty self dealing foundation but these things take time.

14. I'm sorry I pay attention A LOT and they barely spent any time on either.

They CAN mention the child rape case just not the child's name or identifiable information: The equity in reporting cannot be compared.

9. Surrogate City

I have that Bowie song in my head now-- except I change the line to "Surrogate City". Sooo tired of the talking heads. This morning I saw Tim Kaine and Joe Biden, a couple of Republican candidates... and I want to hear what they have to say. Journalists I mostly like. But the "strategists" and campaign workers... not that I dislike them. I've just heard everything they are ever going to say.

10. Its become hard to remain calm.

They tried to oust Obama and failed. That was a near miss. So now they are still getting over 40% of the voters?

That's terrible.

11. We're so distraught about Comey trying to throw the election

When the media has been complicit from day one in distorting the facts.

12. I'm with you.

Yesterday afternoon, I heard an excerpt of a Trump speech on NPR- he was going on and on about "Sharia Law" and assorted fantasies. The less he's tethered to reality or to the Constitution, the more his supporters cheer. As I remember, NPR said very little (or, at the very least, not nearly enough) to counter the lies.

I wanted to vomit.

Trump's supporters scare me more than Trump himself.

Such a disturbing and terrifying election.
