Purveyor of Truth
Millions realize that Donald Trump is nothing more than a wealthy billionaire and gaseous blowhard who excels at being great at lying . Another of his top talents is getting millions of other gullible people to believe his lies.
Hopefully as more sources expose this lying unethical politician the sooner he will sink into political oblivion where he belongs. Right alongside Joseph McCarthy and other discredited demagogues.
It’s the trope on Trump: He’s authentic, a straight-talker, less scripted than traditional politicians. That’s because Donald Trump doesn’t let facts slow him down. Bending the truth or being unhampered by accuracy is a strategy he has followed for years.
"People may not always think big themselves, but they can still get very excited by those who do. That's why a little hyperbole never hurts," Trump wrote in his 1987 best-seller The Art of the Deal. "People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular. I call it truthful hyperbole. It's an innocent form of exaggeration — and a very effective form of promotion."
