This is just a partial list of Trump lies. He lies so often that we are becoming anesthetized by the sheer number. We need to remind ourselves:
He lied about having a plan to defeat ISIS.
He lied about having a health plan that would cover everyone.
He lied about not taking a salary as President.
He lied about the size of his inauguration crowd.
He lied when he claimed that Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower.
He lied when he invented a phantom terror attack in Sweden.
He lied when he said he had the biggest Electoral College win since Ronald Reagan.
He lied when he said that illegal immigrants are responsible for a significant amount of the crime problem in Chicago.
He lied when he claimed full credit for saving $700 million on the F-35 fighter.
He lied when he took full credit for General Motors investing in new plants.
He lied when he said he was against the Iraq war from the beginning.
He lied when he said that the USA knows nothing about the refugees that we accepted under Obama.
He lied when he said there were millions of illegal voters who voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.
The answer is that you do not allow Americans to die from curable diseases. What is so hard about that? There is plenty of money to heal the sick. It is just a question of priorities. Do you want to round up millions of non-criminal illegal immigrants and deport them, or do you want to heal the sick? Do you want to build a great big useless wall on the border, or do you want to heal the sick? Do you want to increase spending on the military in order to fight a war that does not yet exist, or do you want to heal the sick? Do you want to give tax breaks to millionaires and multinational corporations, or do you want to heal the sick?
The court is too small for the level of talent that is on the floor. You can pick the lowest-seeded team (men or women) in any bracket of the NCAA Tournament, and watch the players on the floor, and you will see that all of them are well-schooled in the fundamentals of basketball. The scores of some of the games might be lopsided, but the talent is always amazing in modern college basketball.
