The chickens come home to roost for Lying No. 45

The policy of “no tolerance” for immigrants illegally crossing the U.S. that has led to thousands of children caged like laying hens is just one more instance of a stupid president surrounded by sycophants.

President 45 caved to pressure and signed an executive order today that supposedly ensures those adults arrested for illegally crossing the border are not to be separated from their children. Thousands of children are stuffed inside a number of buildings, caged like laying hens, many of those  babies and toddlers with no idea why their parents are not around to pick them up.  Like 45’s co-signature on a communique with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un allegedly will result in “de-nuclearization” of the Korean Peninsula, the order signed today is short of specifics. For instance: How will children snatched from their parents be reunified with those mothers and fathers and where will they stay?

The constant pictures and audio recordings in the news media of children wailing as federal authorities separate families have created a s*** storm among more than a majority of Americans. Traditional supporters of this president including some evangelical leaders like Franklin Graham and all living First Ladies — including at least in some measure Melania 45 — have  criticized this policy. Kirstjen Nielsen, who as Homeland Security secretary, has played a major ass-kisser in this matter and among the other ass-kissers has proven to be as big a liar as the president. Nielsen was paid back last night for her loving support of baby-snatching as she was loudly accosted by protesters while she was dining in a Mexican restaurant. Talk about your pot calling the kettle black!

During this whole screwup the president and his mighty band of ass-kissers lied that the causation of the federal baby-snatching was due to laws and court cases, but he mostly laid the blame on congressional Democrats. That is totall bulls***, of course. With daughter Ivanka and First Lady Melania nipping at the president’s butt, his caving was in no doubt hasten by GOP lawmakers who see a blue wave in their future.

Even Pope Francis was critical of this most recent lack of moral action by the administration of President 45.

Speaking of moral clarity, I recently emailed the state leader of a mainstream religion in Texas and asked him about the single most-puzzling aspect of this president’s actions. I speak of his compulsive lying. It isn’t that No. 45 misrepresents this fact or another. He is a bald-face liar and now, more and more, those around him feel compelled to lie for him.

My question to this holy man was this: Lying, or bearing false witness as it appears in the Ten Commandments, is a sin. So, how can people who purport devotion to their faith put up with the constant whoppers this a**hole president spins? Many folks I know who support 45 shrugs this off with the “all politicians lie” excuse.

But if someone lies to their friend or relative on a constant basis, would that person eventually throw up their hands and keep their distance from these liars? No matter that a biblical admonition to tell the truth might be a spiritual imperative, it like other Commandments, are a moral and social guideline for getting along in this world.

The religious guy whom I e-mailed wrote me back, unable to attempt an answer to my question as to how can the devout put up with this prevaricator-in-chief. He even gave me the impression that there was something ill with my asking such a question.

Such a moral force our nation has become under President 45. I can only hope the President 45 faithful will not choose to drink cyanide-laced Kool-Aid at some point in time.

*Note: Because of his innate repugnancy, I refuse to use the president’s name anymore.
