Donald Trump lies like a rug. We used to be outraged, but now we just shrug

Leonard Pitts Jr., Miami Herald

We werenít going to normalize this.

Remember that? Remember the way many of us solemnly vowed we would always maintain the ability to be outraged, hold on to our capacity for shock?

Well, after almost four years that have passed like geologic time, that declaration feels like an artifact from another era, a Polaroid from back when the kids were little and you still had all your hair. It feels like something you said when you were too young to know any better.

The truth of Donald Trumpís untruths is that they have become not simply normal, but taken for granted. Saying that Trump lied is like saying the tide came in or the Browns lost. Because, of course. Thatís what they do.The paradox is that the sheer volume of his lies seems to keep any one of them from mattering all that much.

1. We are still outraged, but what the fuck are we supposed to do except

vote him out of office. He OWNS Barr.

2. Truth is, America is bored with Trump and his clown act

It was shocking, even entertaining in a dumb way.... but now everyone is over it. He's repeating the same schtick over and over to ever decreasing response. Time to hook this boring loser off the stage.
