It is true that it is part of human nature that all of us lie in our daily lives.
We lie when we do not want to be honest about someone’s clothes, appearance or our private thoughts about them, when we are in their presence.
We lie at work, to get along with fellow employees, and to avoid antagonizing our supervisors, as we wish to avoid tension, and danger to our livelihood.
We lie, when we try to influence our teachers and professors, hoping to gain a better grade in a class.
We lie when we deal with relatives in order to keep the peace.
We lie when we have friends we do not wish to lose over minor disagreements.
In many other situations, we lie, as we pursue romantic interests.
So it is “normal” to lie, but hopefully, none of this lying is serious lying that undermines our protection of ourselves in society.
Hopefully, we are not lying to the extent that others can see right through our lies, and where our moral and ethical standing is compromised to our detriment.
Hopefully, we are not lying where it causes harm or even more to anyone, in the name of our own ambition.
But then there is Donald Trump, who is, the liar of all liars, the most in Presidential history by far!
Dwight D. Eisenhower lied about the U-2 Spy Plane Incident in 1960.
Lyndon B. Johnson lied about the Vietnam War in 1967.
Richard Nixon lied about the Watergate Scandal in 1973-1974.
Bill Clinton lied about the Monica Lewinsky Affair in 1998.
George W. Bush lied about Weapons of Mass Destruction in 2003.
All of these lies were horrendous, and undermined the record and reputation of the Presidents involved.
But none of these Presidents lied so early in his term, and not at the rate of five lies per day as an average, as shown by an analysis done by the New York Times of the first six months.
Donald Trump has lied about just about everything imaginable, much of it where he knows that we know he is lying, but he is incorrigible.
Donald Trump has made an art of lying, and carries along with him one third of the American people, who seem not to care, or simply be ignorant enough that they do not understand he is lying.
And this lying is going on with no major crisis having yet arisen, but much going on internally which we do not know about, due to national security, but will undermine our nation once we become aware of what Trump and his advisers are perpetrating that will cost American lives, and make the lives of millions of others worsen dramatically, due to the disease of lying excessively.
With only 24 percent trusting him, and 73 percent not trusting him in the latest CNN poll, Donald Trump has lost all credibility.
Donald Trump has become a massive liar, the liar of all liars, a chronic and habitual liar, a disease that undermines any possibility of success in his Presidency.
