He seems to have this thing with measurements. In this picture you can clearly see he’s lying about his height. In this picture you can see the actual inauguration pictures of his own vs President Obama. He clearly lies about these things, but what I’m interested in is WHY? When he was running he even assured the American people that he was hung like a horse, as if it even matters. The penis seize of the most powerful man on Earth has no bearing on anything at all, come to find out that was yet another lie.
Pretty much everything he measures himself against he comes up short, and it’s not like it’s hard to disprove the things he says, either. Like when he claimed the best employment record in history he left out a few details. What he did was equivalent to me handing him $5 then telling the world I made him wealthier than he’s ever been before., as if I was the one that did it. You can look up how much unemployment went down under Obama, and see how much further it went down under Trump, and the timing, and jobs track, and quite-easily see there’s not much to brag about. I mean under Biden it hit lower levels, 3.4% and there’s no fanfare from the Right for it. Further, Democrats usually inherit a shitty economy and really have to work to turn it around, like what happened to Obama, like what happened to Biden.
And it was funny, when Biden had the fastest recovery in U.S. history, Republicans were like, “But it doesn’t count, those were just the jobs that Trump lost”. I’ll take “Things Republicans never said when Trump took office for $600, Alex.” Before Trump won that election he was claiming the “real unemployment rate” was like 45%. Yes, he thought roughly one in two Americans were out of work. Shortly after he won he claimed now the numbers were real.
Other things we might be able to measure, like how well he actually did in school, but he’s threatened to sue anyone that releases those records. So, we can kind of assume what his grades looked like, and combined with statements from past professors, assume those are just more lies. Like his wealth: he claims to be a Billionaire, but refuses to prove it. Almost every single company he’s had filed bankruptcy and went out of business. So how good a businessman could he be if nothing with his name on it lasts? In Stamford, CT, about 20 minutes from me, they took his name off of the Trump Tower. From what I gather a lot of those buildings did.
I just don’t understand why the lies are so much more important than the truth. Is it a Napoleon-complex? Does the party prefer the lies to the truth? I mean this is only a few of the lies, there are many, many more. This emperor has no clothes.
