All in one day, Donald Trump was called a liar by a Republican senator and Gold Star widow Myeshia Johnson. Surrogates for Trump like to create the illusion that Donald Trump’s is under attack by the Democrats and the establishment that he is supposed to be cleaning up. They blame the “fake” media and those resisting Trump as the reason for the bad press. But how can you explain the constant allegations of Trump being a serial liar? Sure, the Trump supporters want you to believe it’s a lie, after all, a liar wants you to believe the lies.

But as you dig through the ample evidence you soon note a constant description about Donald Trump – liar.

From “the check is in the mail” to passing off fake paintings as real, Donald Trump hasn’t met a lie he hasn’t uttered. Trump is a serial liar.

And, much to the chagrin of the Donald Trump supporters, it’s not just me, an immigrant, and other anti-Trumpistas that are calling him a liar. Two recent examples poignantly expose the liar that Trump is.

First is Myeshia Johnson, the Gold Star widow of La David Johnson, the U.S. Special Forces soldier killed in Niger earlier this month. Donald Trump, rather than allow the widow the opportunity to digest the loss of her husband, decided that he had to call her a liar. Liars do that.

Anyone who has recently suffered the loss of a family member should not be expected to act rational or reasonable when talking about politics. As a Gold Star widow, Trump could have simply stated that Johnson is grieving, and she should be left alone to process her loss. But, Trump wouldn’t do that, as a liar he had to attack Myeshia Johnson because she simply called him a liar.

Liars can’t handle being called liars, so they lash out.

Of course, Trump surrogates will argue its political or its “fake” news, but another person was also called Trump a liar publicly this week. Republican Senator, Bob Corker didn’t mince words, he labelled Donald Trump as someone who “has great difficulty with the truth.” It’s a political way of calling someone a liar.

But Corker wasn’t finished, in comments made to CNN’s Manu Raju, yesterday, Corker said that be believes “world leaders are very aware that much of what he [Trump] says is untrue.”

Let that sink in for a moment, Republican Senator Bob Corker is saying that the rest of the world has lost respect for the presidency of the United States.

Corker says world leaders believe that Trump is a liar. And here I thought that those that voted for Donald Trump were voting for an individual that was “going to make America great again”?

Hmm, is making America great again possible with a lying president?

I am embarrassed for those that voted for the Liar-and-Chief, also known as Donald Trump.

    2. Anything can be true if someone says it loudly enough.

    3. Fact is that which enough people believe. Truth is determined by how fervently they believe it.
