I realize it's considered "left", but quite something to see a story with this sort of headline in a fairly mainstream magazine.

Liar in Chief, from Trump's mouth to your ear.

"Liar in Chief" It's not even news anymore.

We have voted coming up in Kansas and Georgia. Both are very close. Democrat wins will be a slap in the liar's face.

“What better way for a ruling class to claim and hold power than to pose as the defenders of the nation.” Christopher Hitchens

"Why, of course, the people don't want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship".
Gilbert: "There is one difference. In a democracy, the people have some say in the matter through their elected representatives, and in the United States only Congress can declare wars".
Göring: "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

I hope this one holds water better then their rape report.Because Trump's never engaged in sexual misconduct? Or because he never lies?

Matt Taibbi wrote an incredibly scathing cover story on our current president's lack of credibility in this month's Rolling Stone.

Really, he lies as easily and often as breathing air. How his supporters can overlook it shows how brain-dead they all are.

This one?

"Trump's reaction to the rape allegation is the worst, but by no means only, way he's demonstrated that the fundamental principle "every individual's person is sacred and no other has the right to touch it" doesn’t apply to him. His own book describes him physically assaulting a teacher (http://www.businessinsider.com/donald-trump-pivotal-childhood-moments-in-the-art-of-the-deal-2015-9) in grade school, characterizing it as standing up for himself, and more recently he's praised a protester getting punched (http://mashable.com/2016/03/12/trump-rally-incite-violence/) at one of his rallies, and in fact regularly endorses violence at his campaign events. He blamed the female reporter (http://www.politico.com/story/2016/03/trump-campaign-manager-charged-with-misdemeanor-battery-221336) who his campaign manager was charged with battering, and, as we now know, he described grabbing women by the genitalia and kissing them without permission. And that's just what he's done or admitted publicly – there are allegations of worse (http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/09/opinion/sunday/donald-trump-groper-in-chief.html?_r=0)."
