What are some of the most important things you’ve learned about politics in the past month?
My favorite quote comes from a CNN article on Trump, who in March asked his supporters “How can we keep the country safe?”
CNN wrote: “Trump said at the time that he would work to make our country safer, but not by banning Muslims from entering the country.”
He later explained: “There is a real danger, I think, that we could lose our country.”
And, of course, Trump has repeatedly claimed that he is the victim of a massive conspiracy that he and his supporters have instigated.
“We have no idea who is behind this, but they have no respect for the truth,” Trump said in a March rally.
“They have no regard for our country, they have a very sad, sad way of looking at people.
And we have to keep it together.”
Trump’s recent tweet calling on people to “watch and learn” is in direct response to a video that showed him making an unsubstantiated accusation that President Obama was not born in the United States.
“So I am going to start watching,” Trump wrote in a video released this month.
“If I do not catch the next one, I am not going to say it again.
I am just going to watch.”
But the president has said many other outrageous things in the last month, and his tweets are only the latest example of his habit of lying and exaggerating.
The most important thing to keep in mind is that Trump’s campaign is just a continuation of a pattern of lying that has existed for a long time.
And Trump’s lies about the size of his inauguration crowd and about the millions of illegal votes in the 2016 election are just one more example of that.
