State Of The Union: A National Embarrassment (Fact Checks)

Of course, I didn't spend one second of last night on Trump's Stage of the Union (SOTU) performance. I have heard it ran close to one and a half hours, and from today's reporting was laced with lies truth-stretching and other Trumpism. Correction, there was a new twist to the first Trump SOTU. He gave himself applause along with his GOP members of Congress. The visual. 

Let's take Trump's recent mantra regarding "black unemployment" as it was bundled into other comments which seem to touch on issues important to minorities.




Many fact checks exist on the day after the SOTU. Last night MSNBC offered a short fact check within an hour of Trump leaving the House Chamber.



I have anxiously awaited the Politifact fact-check which follows. We offer the Politifact Truth-O-Meter (or lack thereof in Trump's case).

When added to the Politifact Trump File, the life of Trump in the White House looks as such.

False statements every four and a half minutes throughout the SOTU. 

Another perspective on Trump's SOTU performance:


As was the case with Bill Clinton and issues outside of his marriage. As was the case of Trump and his history of sleaze, we also knew that Trump was a serial liar who also avoid fraud trials via settling out of court. But I will wager no one knew the extent of his affliction of lying (itis). Yet, it is all much more serious than Trump's pathological lying. 

Trump could serve as a conduit to a state of fascism very much akin to international leaders and regimes he seems to hold in high grace and fondness. If you tend to disagree, watch closely his public affinity for the leaders of Russia, Turkey, and the Philippines. High information Voters (HIVs) are immune from Trumpism as their scope of and quest for, knowledge span outside of total belief in and devotion to Trump and Trump TV (AKA Fox News and Sinclair News) and radio media. The conduit is Trump reach and fissures in the minds and psyches of people who are the antithesis of the HIV; the LIV (Low Information Voter). Therein lies the danger. A danger which without questions past dictators and mental ill national leaders use to affect a subservient populace willing to accept any acts from the leader.

Here are a couple of links to additional observation and comment regarding Trump's SOTU:
