Being lied to by a non-politician is a refreshing change from being lied to by a politician.

Do you feel compelled to just say something...anything to have the last word, no matter how foolish it sounds?

I'm hard pressed to think of any US politician of any political stripe that lies to the extent that Trump does.

"Mr Trump is the leading exponent of “post-truth” politics—a reliance on assertions that “feel true” but have no basis in fact."

Which is what the article I linked in post in #58, above, said. Donald Trump's campaign included "bull§4!t" not lies per se.

Plenty of both, actually.

Bullshit is when he says he's going to do something, despite knowing that it's either a) unconstitutional, b) illegal, c) totally impractical, or d) any combination of the above.

Lying is pretty much everything he says that isn't bullshit.

But apparently saying that he was going to be the next President of the United States wasn't either!

If you throw enough darts, you're bound to score a bullseye sooner or later
