The US Is Governed by a Liar

The United States has issued a formal apology to the United Kingdom for President Trump’s claim that  UK intelligence services helped former President Barak Obama spy on Trump with a wiretap.

Apologies were made by two talking heads – press secretary Sean Spicer and national security adviser McMaster – but so far there is no word of  an apology through official diplomatic channels.  Such official channels are under the direction of “Secretary of State” Tillerson, who seems to have abandoned diplomacy in a deliberate attempt to destroy the international influence of the United States.  So far, the blustering demagogue Trump has not apologized personally.
Last week, Trump accused former President Barak Obama of using wiretapping to spy on Trump during the 2016 election campaign.  FBI chief James Comey and former CIA chief James Clapper both denied Trump’s wild claim.  Yesterday, the senate intelligence committee published a statement saying they had no evidence for Mr. Trump's claim.

After those claims were officially refuted, Trump accused GCHQ, the headquarters of UK intelligence, of spying to help Obama.  But now, Britain has denied those wild claims, and the White House has apologized for the wild lie.

Trump will say anything to stir up trouble against his political opponents.  His constant lies show an utter disrespect for the American people and the office of the presidency.  Trump is a demagogue and is not qualified to lead the nation.
Members of Congress who support Trump also show their disrespect for the Constitution and the American people.  By repeating his lying rhetoric and supporting his hateful policies, they have positioned themselves as traitors to America and enemies of the American people, who will know what to do in the next Congressional elections.  The fascist ideologues of Congress had better wake up and do something to rein in the liar Trump before he destroys America and the American people utterly.
