Nobody likes me. Donald Trump
Truth or Consequences is the name of a town in New Mexico, and of a game show from the 1940s. But its also one of the primal laws of existence. Where an important truth is denied, consequences follow.
So none of us can be surprised at the state of the union after seven months of President Donald Trumps lies, alibis and magical thinking in the face of one of the worst public health crises in history. More than 150,000 of us are dead, the U.S. economy just endured its worst quarter on record and there is no sign the disaster is going to abate any time soon. To the contrary, the federal government is adding to the list of red zone states i.e., states where the COVID-19 infection rate continues to climb. Twenty-one states nearly half the country now make the list, including Florida, Tennessee, Texas and Mississippi.
And it should be lost on none of us that the red zone states are also mostly red states. Nineteen of the 21 California and Nevada are the outliers went for Mr. Trump in 2016. Red states, not to put too fine a point on it, are those wed expect to be most susceptible to his lies, alibis and magical thinking and most resistant to masks and social distancing.
Again, this is no surprise. As has been noted repeatedly in this space, truth doesnt care about your feelings. Unfortunately, Mr. Trump doesnt care about truth, so on behalf of 330 million of us, he chose consequences instead. And this country will be years in recovering, if it ever does.

Trumps lies are hurting the country. Just look at the Coronavirus numbers and the economy
I bet his “lies” are not hurting the country near as much as Left-wing lies.
Another idiotorial from Stu Pitts
What did you expect from this author?
One look at who the author is and you know right away it’s propaganda manure. This guy is the poster boy for a ugly soul.

Where did you find Pitts? I thought he was dead.
Bless his little heart.
I’m worried that the hundred thousand people who read this rag are going to vote Democrat./S
As the election approaches, there will be lots of these types of editorials blaming President Trump for various aspects of a pandemic he did not start.
I think the Democrats are looking for just the right mix of talking points to slam the President. When they find what they consider to be the fatal brew, then the contents of that editorial will be hammered on the public by the MSM until election day.
RE: Where did you find Pitts? I thought he was dead.
I found him at Baltimore Sun. This is Leonard Pitts JUNIOR.
Is this who you have in Mind?
Wasn’t he on The Wire?...
I keep hearing from the Dems about all the Trump lies. What lies?
Here are lies I understand:
Benghazi was all about a video
The US is prepared for any eventuality (WH statement 10 Sep 2012)
If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor
If you like your plan you can keep your plan.
We will post all bills on the internet for at least 2 days before signing.
We have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it.
