“Try the truth! Try the truth!
I clearly say and loudly state:
All those lies? Let them abate.
Try the truth and you may find
The truth is good for heart and mind!”
“Go away you pesky fools!
Your real news hurts my orange head!
You count each death as really dead!
I like to fudge a bit instead.
Lies and cruelty are my tools!
I mix folks up with bogus rules.”
“Would you try the truth today?
Would you taste the truth this day?
Tell the truth — just this once.
Try it Trump and you may see
Lies are for the cowardly.
Lies are for the little runts.
Heroes take the truthful way.”
“I do not like the truth at all!
I would not tell it at a ball!
I would not tell it on a call!
I would not tell it to a doll!
I do not like the truth at all!
It makes my teeny hands get itchy.
It makes my suck-lips go all twitchy.
I do not like the truth at all!”
“But try it once and you’ll discover
The truth means there’s no Cover-
Up and Down and Left and Right;
Let all reveal in shining Light!
You’ll be part of something great!
None need more exaggerate.”
“I do so hate the truth at dawn.
I do so hate the truth at dusk.
I hoard the corn and tout the husk.
I flash my flab as though it’s brawn.
I tell them all I’m smart as a whip.
And fly on a magic crystal sailing ship.”
“Yet, if you’d try the truth you might well see
That truth, my friend, would set you free!
Sharing truth allows humanity
To cure disease and mount the moon!
Without the truth, no-one learns.
Without the truth, everything burns.”
“I hate the truth since I was born!
Give others husk; I’ll gorge on corn!
Give others poo while I watch porn!
Steal their wealth and kids with lies!
Rape the kids! A sweet surprise!
I believe Putin; not our own spies!”
“Try the truth! For just one hour.
You’ll find it’ll cure your cowardly cower.
You’ll find that you can learn from errors;
Improve; get better; leave more for your heirs.”
“More? You’re nuts! That wouldn’t be wise!
My wealth is based entirely on lies!
I’ve never worked! Not a day in my life.
Just ask my wife or my wife or my wife.”
“Well Mr. Trump, it you won’t try the true,
You’ll be out of a job; even Pu-
Tin can’t rig the entire election.
Lies will spoil your climb to power.
Lies will ruin that garish Trump Tower
And even the teeniest shroom of erection.”
Trumpism is a new religion.
The Truth Train.

Peter, it is has never been a surprise that the president lies. Trump attorney Thomas Wells wrote before the election, “Donald Trump lies every day, even about things of no consequence.” The only thing wrong with this statement is the frequency. Trump lies throughout the day.
But, I watched the VP on ABC News this morning. When someone covers for someone prone to lie, what does that make them? George Stephanopolous pointed out two points that caused Mr. Pence to ever so slightly pause, but he blew right through them.
George pointed out that Senator McConnell is encouraging mail-in voting as it is safe in direct contrast to the president and VP. The other is when Pence was talking about how great a job the president is doing on COVID-19, George pointed out a line from Biden’s speech that said we have about 5% of the world’s population and about 25% of the COVID-19 deaths. The real number is closer to 4% and around 24% the last time I checked, but Biden’s point is on target.
The COVID-19 mishandling and misinformation continue to this day in spite of the rose colored glass picture that Mike painted. Keith
