Quips, quotes, queries, qualms and quarrels regarding American politics, politicians, foreign policy and public accountability with particular attention to Drumpfen-putz Administration, the Drumpf Crime Family and the Mueller investigation.
The culture of lying in Washington is so pervasive, so
endemic that this GOP Congressperson, Rep. Tom Rooney, is defending Hope Hicks
for lying. He is outraged (outraged, I
tell you!) that Dems would 'leak' (i.e. inform the public) about Hick's
admission to telling 'white lies' for Drumpf.
Rooney even went so far as to give an example of an
'acceptable' lie: to wit - his assistant lies to a constituent that Rooney is
'not in the office' in order to avoid a call.
So there you have it. Lying liars justifying lies in
defense of the Liar-in-chief.
