Hey, what about that 10% tax cut before November? Was that just a big, fat lie?

    If he lied about that, is there anything he won't lie about?

    Trump started off with the concept that people want to be told what they want to hear, not reality, not truth.

    They want to be entertained, they want to be distracted from the real world.

    He realized it's actually true and it works. So he's just carrying on and getting more and more surreal with every passing day, and yet his supporters seem to be going along with it.

    Most of these "accomplishments" aren't anything special.

    Releasing some guy from Turkey. Doesn't impact the lives of 99.999999999999999999999% of Americans.

    Approval rating of 51%. Yeah, in ONE poll. AND Obama got 69%, Bush W got 92%, Clinton got 73%, Bush snr got 89%, Reagan got 71%, even Carter got 74% for fuck's sake. (oh, and in the same analysis Trump only got 45%).

    Justice Kavanaugh got sworn in, through a Republican Presidency, a Republican House and a Republican senate. It's like getting a birthday card on your birthday.

    Shrank the US govt by 16,000 jobs. Down from 2.8 million to 2.795 million. Oh wow. That's like... that's like, wait, did anyone actually notice?

    And yet since 2016 100,000 EXTRA PEOPLE are employed by governments in the US. Yeah. Government in the US has RISEN since Trump got into office.

    US cuts $300 million aid to Pakistan. That aid went to education (well supposedly). That's of aid worth $50 billion a year... so that's like Trump saving on buying a new pair of underwear at Walmart.

    Trump ends payments to Syria. No, the US is "withholding" funds that might be released at a later date.

    So, basically what we find is, the only way to make "accomplishments" is to essentially misrepresent the truth.
