    I think that he's set a record for a sitting President and maybe even for a politician!

    Tarry diddling Trump, the pate paper sculled Priscian head breaking prevaricator. He lies :eek: standing,sitting or Tweeting.

    So can we agree that when witch hunting he really is looking to find one he can grope?

    Not that a lie is unusual in political office but there should be some sort of limit, let's call it the official

    Only one source, of course.

    But are you suggesting Trump doesn't lie? There's a list available if there's any doubt.

    I just Googled List of Trump lies. lots of sources. Here's one.

    ("U.S. President Donald Trump says a lot of false things, big and small — nearly 400 in his first six months in office. ")

    You know how you can tell that a politician is lying? Any of them! Their lips are moving.

    Of course he lies. He always lied and the press ate it up and gave him extensive coverage and went overboard hyping the debates and everything else. The media wanted Hillary to win and minimized Sanders, while thinking they were destroying the republican party by making Trump the nominee.

    The media managed to back the one candidate in the whole wide world that people disliked and distrusted more than Trump. Now they are attempting to destroy the credibility of someone who lacks credibility and opening themselves up to scrutiny regarding their own lies. The whole bunch needs to load up on Xanax.

    I enjoy the press reports on any and all politicians. So often they expose the backroom boys and girls chicanery.Still with Trump the old proverb is proven, to wit,
    Proverbs 17:28
    Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.
    Or as put today,

    Latin Proverb..."Qui tacet consentire videtur, ubi loqui debuit ac potuit." He who is silent, when he ought to have spoken and was able to, is taken to agree.
    Simply put... society considers silence meaning consent.

    Operative circumstance, "when he ought to have spoken".


    "society considers silence meaning consent. " Which is sometimes apropos and sometimes not.

    The phrase you originally quoted is high minded and idealistic, but is often used for wrongful purposes. Essentially someone using this phrase is unable to present a cogent argument and resorts to making a statement that will hopefully end the conversation, while appearing "high minded".

    When there is a response, the high minded individual then moves on to "narcissists must always have the last word".

    So is it you, or I?

    Tenacious are we? Or is it tendentious, I always mix them up.
