13,435 / 993 (13.5)

I’m not even sure how to react to this anymore.  According to the Washington Post on 9 October 2019, President Donald Trump has made 13,435 false or misleading claims since taking office.  This comes down to 13.5 per day.  It’s amazing enough that one man can fabricate or distort so much, but that’s trivial.  His linguistic creativity wouldn’t be an issue if it were not for all among the great American populace who support him unreservedly.

I understand the Grand Accommodation made by Christians who support Trump and their willingness to compromise their own ethical integrity in order to have a man in office, who, working with a Republican Senate have begun to place conservative judges on the courts.  For those who have been bemoaning, cursing, and fighting legalized abortion, this seems like the horizon of golden days when such embryo extermination and feticide will be abolished and, as a bonus, traditional American family values (whatever those are) will be returned to the land.  Apparently, routine and frequent deceit, along with other behaviors most of us were brought up to find reprehensible isn’t costly enough to matter.

I wonder what God thinks about that.
