  1. I know that Trump tells a lot of things that are considered lies (I don’t keep track). I’ve thought of him as the fellow most of us knows that tells big stories, fish tales, exaggerations. That aside, can you think of a lie Trump has told that has a much significance as Obama saying that people could keep their doctor under Obamacare? You may have several in mind. Just one will do. It’s something I hadn’t thought of till now.

    1. Let’s go with two from the old days: Possession of proof that Obama was not born in the United States, and personally witnessing television coverage of thousands of Muslims in New Jersey celebrating the destruction of the twin towers. Both were patently false, have been proven so time and again, and were factors in motivating his base.

      1. Thanks. I’m not convinced that either of those rises to the level of saying one can keep his own doctor in order to get Obamacare passed, but I do appreciate your answer. Enjoy your poetry.

      2. I agree that they’re not equivalent. Deliberately stoking fear, hatred and racism pales next to the sheer evil of attempting to provide healthcare to millions of people.
