... and he isn't. I am not sure what should scare us more the lying, or the willful ignorance. In the short term lying is more detrimental, but ignorance presents long term repercussions. Many of Donald Trump's lies are rooted in ignorance. He hears one thing, and doesn't bother to research the topic in order to find out the truth. I find many of Trump's supporters in the same camp, they cling to every Trump word as though it is gospel when in fact he has been shown to lie an astounding 70%+ of the time.
What would your parents have done if they caught you lying as much as Trump does to the American public? I seem to remember the punishment for lying being washing your mouth out with soap.
