There is an old saying that insists that - “A lie is halfway around the world before the truth has got its boots on.” Nowadays, with social media everywhere and more often than not, opinion, replacing hard facts as the ‘gold standard’ of journalism, it is becoming increasingly difficult to separate fact from fiction in the modern world. In the good old days, when bleary eyed hacks were the sole purveyors of what was deemed to be news, apart from the occasional ‘Letter to the Editor’ rant - whatever the average readers views might be - they were of no particular interest to them. Mostly, letters from the dreaded ‘green ink brigade’ ended up screwed into a ball and flung into the waste paper basket and that was the end of that.

Notwithstanding the inane request from Steven, we are well aware that the Washington Post has documented some 16,000 lies Trump has told. One truth of which we can be sure: Trump is unfit for office.
Hi Frank, as you most probably have never met Trump, meaning that anything you know about him has been garnered from social media, please give us an example of him being less than frank, or less so than any other politician. Thanks.
