George Burns once said, “Acting is all about honesty. If you can fake that, you’ve got it made.”
Burns’ advice would certainly prove beneficial to anyone in most any profession. However, in the case of Donald Trump, the man can’t even fake it when he tries to act presidential. The truth is that he tells too many lies!
Trump has told so many lies that those who catalog his fibs, fabrications, and falsehoods have reported that they can’t keep up the pace. The New York Times and others have made valiant attempts to document complete inventories of Trump’s contradictions and cock-and-bull stories, but the work is relentless.
Tonight, November 9, 2017, marks the one year anniversary of Trump’s biggest whopper to date. Do you know what it was? Something about…
* respecting women?
* knowing more than the generals?
* having a secret plan to defeat ISIS?
* devising a health care plan that benefited everyone at lower costs?
* not mocking the disabled?
Nope. Those lies were certainly among his top efforts, but they weren’t his biggest lie.
We wrote about Trump’s biggest lie back in May just after his 100th day in office. You can read that post and discover the mammoth whopper , TRUMP'S BIGGEST LIE, by clicking HERE (you'll find it near the bottom of the post).
To mark the one-year anniversary of this colossol falsification, we have posted a poem by Emmett Lee Dickinson, “The Lie he told was very great” (below on the left). We doubt this or any poem by Dickinson would inspire Trump to speak the truth; however, it did inspire Dickinson’s third cousin Emily to pen her poem “The Life we have is very great” (below on the right).
By Emmett Lee Dickinson:
The Lie he told was very great.
The Lie that he set free
Surpasses all, we know, beyond
His vast Dishonesty.
For when all Lies have been beheld
And all Division shown
His smallest Human Heart’s extent
Reduces it to none.
By Emily Dickinson:
The Life we have is very great.
The Life that we shall see
Surpasses it, we know, because
It is Infinity.
But when all Space has been beheld
And all Dominion shown
The smallest Human Heart’s extent
Reduces it to none.
