Somewhere in the world, you are reading about Trump.  Yes, there are his devotees, but I hope you are not one of them.  For the record, and it is on many, many records and stats, Trump lies.  His staff lies to emphasize the saying, “Birds of a feather flock together.”

Here are some quotes about lying and cover ups.  As kids, most of us were involved in a lie and a cover up.  Most times, we never got away with such dishonesty.  It was pointed out to us, that no matter, how scared we were or fearful of getting into trouble, the truth was the only way to go.  We had to own our mistake(s) and ‘grow uip.’  How often have parents stated, “You will sooner or later be caught out in a lie.”   Now it is Trump’s turn to find this truism out!


“If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.”

Mark Twain

“I’m not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

-“Things come apart so easily when they have been held together with lies.” 

Dorothy Allison, Bastard Out of Carolina


Some people think that the truth can be hidden with a little cover-up and decoration. But as time goes by, what is true is revealed, and what is fake fades away. Ismail Haniyeh

As so often happens with Washington scandals, it isn’t the original scandal that gets people in the most trouble – it’s the attempted cover-up. Tom Petri

Thank God for our form of government. The media won’t let there be any cover-up. John McCain
