"The Lord hates liars"

Since members of the Trump admin seem so enamored of quoting the bible, I thought I'd share a bible passage with them - Proverbs 12:22 - "The Lord hates liars, but is pleased with those who keep their word.".

Trump and his followers admit he lies all the time .... in just the last day he has lied about his policy of taking immigrant children away from their parents, he has lied about the IG report from the FBI/DOJ, he has lied about his relationship to Paul Manafort, and so much more. Trump and his followers excuse this by saying it doesn't matter, that everyone lies.

They are being disingenuous: how would they feel if the doctor who was treating their illness lied to them about their test results, if the bank where they kept their savings lied to them about their balance, if the cop who answered their emergency call lied to them about their safety?

No one likes to be lied to, especially not be professionals on whom we all depend (like the President of the United States). What the Trump people and Trump himself want is to legitimize their lies to others, lies they hope will allow them to stick it to all those they resent.

Here is Lawrence O'Donnell on Trump's most recent lying ...

The term "pathological liar" springs to mind. There are two kinds of pathological liars, the ones who can't distinguish truth from falsehood, and the ones who don't care.

I think Trump knows he's lying. He uses his lies to try to get whatever he wants.
