My answer to Why are so many Americans willing to overlook Trump's lies?
Answer by Desmond Last:
Overlooking our Governments lies is not particular to Donald Trump. America overlooked the Government lies that were told about the death of Marilyn Monroe. From then on America learned to live with the lies of its Governments – as we all do.
If there is anybody that believes a word that their Government is able to spin then they should join Theresa May in Alice in Wonderland.
We can no longer trust our Governments nor should we. They seek to impose their will on our way of life with or without our consent. ‘Government and the Establishment’ have become their own Nation State. They exist apart from us. They consider that the less they have to do with us the better.
They will tell any lie and spin any fact in order to stay in Government. Theresa May the Queen of Spin should be the least trusted of any Prime Minister the U.K has ever had. Theresa May could turn out be the least honest of any Politician in the modern history of the Western World – time will tell.
May spent six years as Home Office Minister in a Cabinet that did not want to leave the E.U. Then as if hit by a thunderbolt May suddenly became a convert to Brexit. Why? Not because it is the best policy for the United Kingdom but because it is the best policy for May and the Conservatives to remain in Government.
Trump is no different. Swamp emptier rhetoric on the outside, establishment blue blood on the inside. America is better off with the lies and spin of Trump than it is with the lies and spin of Clinton and Obama – just!
Trump is smart. He knew exactly what to say to get voted in. He knew that once he was in he would have to shake hands with Clinton and the CIA. He is trying to scare the media into complicit compliance – do not fall for it.
America must learn to question and Trump must learn to govern.
America must seek the facts and not to be bulldozed by Trump as many of the media have been and are. Trump will flatten you with his wall of rhetoric and his ‘make America great again’. The only way to ensure Trump is fighting the corner of Mr and Mrs America is to ensure his ideas are better then yours. If they are not then ensure he knows why your ideas are better than his and get him back on the straight and narrow.
The number one rule when dealing with Trump is to remember is that he is a businessman who has always got his own way.
The number two rule when dealing with Trump is that he is always right unless you can prove him wrong with absolute proof and fact and at the same time find somebody on his staff to blame.
The number three rule when dealing with Trump is that his ideas are better than yours unless you can prove your ideas are better than his.
The number four rule when dealing with Trump is that he has zero tolerance for d..kh..ds.
Now it is not his way but the People’s way. He may make a good President yet. But America you must stand up to him in order to for him to learn a little humility – it is called the Constitution.
