Letter to the Editor - Serial lying is the new normal?

Dear Editor,

On Aug. 7, 1974, Senators Barry Goldwater and Hugh Scott and Rep. John Rhodes journeyed from Capital Hill to the White House to tell President Nixon that the Republican Party had decided to abandon him; that it was time for him to go.

Nixon resigned the next day.

I am dumbfounded by the apathy of the people who voted for the “Groper in Chief” and don’t seem to care about the daily lies that come out of the White House.

“Oh, you know it’s just Donald.  He’s new at this.”

We now sanction serial lying as the new norm.  Those of you who condone all of this should take a long look in the mirror. 

All of the promises he made were just lies to get you to vote for him.  He never had any intention to fulfill them

In the meantime, he has made the White House his private ATM machine, and it is spitting out millions for him.

His new tax plan is a beautiful one.  He eliminates Medicaid and gives all that money to the richest in the country.  The GOP should rename their party for what it truly stands for: “Get Old People.”
