Michael Moore on Trump, Baseball, and Lying

In the era where the president tells over 15,000 lies in his first three years in office — and continues to be president — what is the lesson to society? It is that TRUTH no longer matters, TRUTH is no longer required. All bets are off. You can now just make shit up. It’s ok. If what you’ve made up has a kernel of “truth” to it, then you’ll have a better chance of fooling the public into thinking you’ve told the truth. It is an era when even good people now can lie, cheat, steal. In Trumps first year, the Houston Astros cheated their way to win baseball’s World Series. In Trump’s second year, the Boston Red Sox did the same thing. By the end of Trump’s third year, the massive disease of dishonesty had spread way beyond professional men’s sports. Wealthy parents (already with a leg up) lied and bribed to get their children into “better” schools.
How do we turn the deception around? One small way would be to strip Houston and Boston of their World Series trophies and give them to the team they cheated to win: the LA Dodgers. They “lost” to the liars—the truth dodgers—in 2017 and 2018. That’s just a start. The real way to fix this pandemic is for each of us to call “BS!” whenever we see it - even if we have to call it on people we like. We hold that power. Everyone please — off the bench!
