    At this point Trump could say the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus are real and they'd believe him.

    If you think I support that group you must have me confused with someone else. Believe it or not, it is not a binary decision. You are not forced to pick a team and support them, perhaps you could consider demanding better of both sides??

    Are you saying they're not real?

    Nobody lies as much as trump does other than maybe some people under state or mental health care supervision. The man literally just makes it up as he goes with no regard for real facts and people continue to believe him. Closest thing to a Hitler level disconnect from reality since Hitler. Truly frightening that his supporters never stop and say wait a minute, 30 days ago you said no problem and now you say 200k dead will be good. You can show them video of him saying x today and y tomorrow and they still believe him. I just don't get it

    There's that 37% number again. A call to beef up this nation's educational system.

    Your point seems to be that there's no problem because Trump said there's no problem.

    The difference between Trump/Biden lies and Pelosi/Schiff/Schumer/Nadler lies is when Trump & Biden lie it is usually misstating facts, example: Saying millions when it is really thousands. When Schiff/Pelosi lie it is a complete fabrication intended to fool their sheeple.

    Lying is never good unless it's a little white lie to not hurt someone's feelings. Virtually all politicians lie, or at least stretch the truth. But Trump is a pathological liar. There's big difference between him and the politicians you mentioned. It's not even close. Not sure why you refuse to see something so obvious. Maybe you're lying to yourself?

    A little snippet in the backstory to the Patriot's plane being used to fly masks from China to Massachusetts led me to this.

    And then again maybe I don't take everything CNN & MSNBC say as gospel. After the briefing tonight I switched immediately to MSNBC to see their reaction. Do you know what the very first words out of their mouths was? We've been busy fact checking the President. LMAO I can picture a bunch of guys in a newsroom during the briefing checking Politifact with his every word. It's almost comical.

    That's pretty much what they have to do. Trump lies so much that everything he says has to be checked. That's just the media doing its job. It's unfortunate that it's necessary though.

    The first lie they pointed out was that tonight he said he could see light at the end of the tunnel but yesterday he said we were going to be in for a couple of real tough weeks.

    The two statements are not mutually exclusive....Truth is Trump is a very optomistic person. The media is looking for the worst case possible to make their point. It is just plain silly.

    In yesterdays briefing he referred to a black member of the press as you people.....Some media painted it as a racist remark. Too funny.

    Possible but the most likely explanation is that Trump attacks the press when he is asked a tough question to which is incapable of providing an intelligent response.

    Trump refers to the liberal press as you guys all the time. For a media outlet to spin that as a racial slur because the reporter was a black woman is not only dishonest but promotes racism itself.

    Just because they don't say it on TV doesn't mean they aren't lying. Just like Pelosi saying they didn't sneak the $15/hr federal minimum wage in the stimulus but if you do the math, she's a liar. $600/wk / 40 hours = $15. That's in addition to the unemployment you already get. She also made her millions by lying about insider trading, not once, not twice but 8 times until they had to pass the Pelosi Act to prevent her from doing it.

    Also,

    Trump details mass shipments of medical supplies being sent to states

    What I don't understand is here in Alabama, we have already made about a million of each type of PPE via small businesses who changed their business model. My wife's print shop which has a laser cutter is making face guards, about 100/day to start and eventually 300/day once they improve the process. She's just one business doing that; there are 30 other print shops making a total of 7,000 face shields per day, in Alabama. So she knows for a fact that Alabama is small beans because she has other print shops in other parts of the country doing the same for their states. Then she knows of at least 20 cloth shops that are retooling to make PPE garb like masks and gowns to the tune of 30,000/per day. The Wrangler plant here is now making 100,000/day PPE, including N95 masks. There might be price gouging in other places but not for long. My wife is charging at cost so she can retain her employees, which is $3.00 per face shield.
