If you’re gonna tell a lie, make it a big one. Make it so astonishing, so blatant, that you cause the listener to question his own grasp on reality. Turn down the gaslight, and when he notices, say the light was always that dim. Is he going to believe the evidence of his own senses, or is he gonna go along to get along?
All politicians do it, including our current Commander-in-Chief, but few do it with as much gusto as Joe Biden. He just really digs lying, almost as much as his old boss does. …
,,, Operation Fast and Furious. Sending the IRS after conservative groups. Sending the DOJ after reporters. Benghazi. Solyndra. Bowe Bergdahl and the Taliban Five. “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” Palettes of cash to Iran. Standing idly by while Russia meddled in the 2016 election, and then blaming it on Trump. Anything you’d call a scandal, none of it actually happened during the Obama administration.
And even if it did, so what? What are you, some kind of racist? #ObamaIsAwesome!
It’s not enough that they got their own way for eight years. Now they have to lie about all the lies.
This kind of crap works on Joy Behar, and now we’ll see how the rest of America likes Joe’s BS.
