Mark Twain said, “A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.” Will Rogers said, “A fool and his money are soon elected.”
Truer words were never spoken. Look at our senators, governor and president.
Lies backed by Russian money cost Hillary Clinton the electoral votes she needed to win the election. She won the popular vote by a large margin. No one has ever been subjected to so many lies as were told on her. Vladimir Putin knew that if she was elected, she would protect the United States and not be his puppet.
There was never a war on coal. Natural gas replaced coal due to its lower cost. Republicans misled the people in Kentucky and took control of the state. God help the people in coal country, because the officials they elected will not.
Never miss a local story.
We do not have a legitimate president. The last-minute lies spread on the internet and mass media that Clinton may be indicted caused the electoral election loss.
We may never recover from the errors of the last Bush administration, but this one may end up even worse.
