    "It's old news" said the press as soon as it was clear that Obama and Hillary had been lying for three weeks.

    Lying to the country about having sex with an intern in the oval office just didn't matter.

    "It's his sex life and no big deal" said the press....

    Lying about the consequences of a major piece of legislation just doesn't measure up to the standards of Trump lies.
    I never said that neither Clinton's nor Obama's lies were inconsequential. You're the one who keeps insisting that Trump's lies are inconsequential.

    But the crap about Benghazi isn't an example. And Clinton's indiscretions with Lewinsky only became a big deal because the Republicans made it a big deal. The majority of Americans opposed his impeachment.

    I thought Obama's statements about everyone being able to keep their doctor and the ACA passed was silly at the time. But the vast majority of people have kept their doctor.

    You can find examples to argue your point. What we are arguing is extent and volume.

    For every Obama example you have, there are 20 Trump. How many times a day does RW media give Trump lies or foster them or perpetuate them? Trump deals in volume and crazy and Trump's media runs with every crazy lie.

    Fox News fostered their own lies based on Trump's lie. Go figure.

    As the trump administration progresses, watch for lies that matter. Looking backward, Obama did many of the same things, but we have a record of those times when it mattered a lot.
    Stop with the bullshit excuses ok. You can twist this anyway you want, but the world is watching this shit show and its embarrassing. Oh, and your embarrassing yourself in the process.

    You mean he had the liberal media on his side. How many times did Obama appear on Fox news. Obama appeared more on late night talk shows than he did fox news

    Obama is a modern media character, smooth, appearing in control, sly.

    Trump is a 19th century PT Barnum like character and he is offensive to those who like their lies served up so you can't tell they are lies until much later.
    Are you irrational? NO, everybody is fucking NOT in on the joke.
    The President of the United States is NOT supposed to be a fucking joke.

    I hate to break it to you but, Trump is President. Granted, he lost the popular vote however, voter suppression, Russian and FBI interrvention and a bit of hubris by Hillary managed to secure him the presidency. You're going to have the opportunity tobwear Trump's actions like a hat. He's yours, all yours, you get to own everything he does.

    A bunch, yet it seems to be happening to Trump with almost daily frequency.

    I chalk it up to Trump's pathological lying, pure and simple.
