Not Trump

The Orlando-Sentinel, which leans far more Republican than Democrat, is already out with an editorial endorsement for the next President: Not Donald Trump.

The following paragraphs made me smile.

There was a time when even a single lie — a phony college degree, a bogus work history — would doom a politician’s career.

Not so for Trump, who claimed in 2017 that he lost the popular vote because millions of people voted illegally (they didn’t). In 2018 he said North Korea was no longer a nuclear threat (it is). And in 2019 he said windmills cause cancer (they don’t). Just last week he claimed the media fabricated unfavorable results from his campaign’s internal polling (it didn’t).

Maybe his lies will eventually catch up to him. Maybe.
