Dear GOP: One Of The Problems With Having A President Who LIES CONSTANTLY...

...is that PEOPLE STOP BELIEVING him when he says things. DUH! Maybe you don't care about that, as long as he gives billionaires more tax cuts, and appoints more wing nuts to the Supreme Court. But it becomes problematic if you're trying to gin up yet another WAR.

Exhibit A:
(Specific to THIS Presidential crackpot, who you're constantly defending.)
--I won by the biggest victory in history (bullshit)
---I had the biggest inauguration crowd in history (bullshit)
--The Queen (mother of the Prince of Whales) said I was the most entertaining guest she's ever had (bullshit)
--The polls say I'm winning by huge margins in every state (bullshit)
and then...
---Iran is behind the attacks on those tankers. BELIEVE ME. (???)



Exhibit B:
(Specific to YOUR PARTY, which is composed entirely of chickenhawks who spent the Vietnam war hiding under a dormitory bunk in divinity school, and who must now start wars to prove their manhood.)
--Reagan ordered the invasion of Grenada because they were about to take U.S. medical students hostage (they weren't)
--Reagan ordered the bombing of Tripoli and Benghazi because Gaddafi bombed a discotheque in Berlin (he didn't)
--Bush ordered the invasion of Iraq because "there is no doubt that Saddam has weapons of mass destruction" (he didn't)
and then...
---Iran is behind the attacks on those tankers. BELIEVE US. Have we ever lied to you about this stuff? (???)


What's the worst part about this? The fact that Iran MIGHT actually be behind this, but YOU CAN'T SAY SO, BECAUSE YOU NO LONGER HAVE ANY CREDIBILITY! Contrary to what Grover Norquist tells you, cutting taxes for plutocrats, and appointing reactionary judges are NOT the only things a President is good for.

With the rise of Donald Trump, you and your propaganda merchants at Fox News may think presidential respectability is a quaint little artifact from the 19th century. But there's a REASON that Presidents should have CREDIBILITY. It's because SOMETIMES something important will happen, and you'll have to TAKE THEIR WORD FOR IT. You can't expect an assclown who tweets every jackass thing that falls out of his butt at 4am to command RESPECT! And sometimes RESPECT is NECESSARY for the national interest.

3. They. Don't. Care.

Magical thinkers simply do not care, do not believe, will slide into a deep denial, or manufacture a suitable conspiracy to excuse it.

gullibility, dishonesty and servility of the family values crowd.

7. Add one more the actual country that attacked an American election gets a pass.

Military conflict with Russia is unthinkable but still Republicans are unwilling to address the issue with even defensive measures.

8. They will Care

When our soldiers return home in body bags. And then we find out we've been lied to....again. I just hope and pray he's out of office before anything really, critically bad happens. Right now he's riding high on other president's successes and initiatives and no wars.

10. He talks a big war game with Iran

Until proven otherwise, I think Putin has the last word on anything this president does with our military.

11. thank you for not attempting a comprehensive list

If you tried to list all the bullshit from PuppeTrump and the Gangsters Of Putin in one place, the Internet might implode.
