Calling a lie a lie

There are lots of tweets today on the issue of whether Trump’s lies should be called “lies”or something milder like “false statements”.  Tweeters criticized the media for not calling his statements lies when they are untrue.

Some of the issues raised by those who don’t want to call them lies are:

  • we don’t know his intentions
  • he believes the stuff he says

I think he is a pathological liar and he wins if his lies are not called lies.  If he believes this crap, that’s a big problem too.  All politicians lie but this is not normal and we can’t forget that.

Here are some of the best tweets I saw today:
