I Guess that Trumps Your Entry

Wiki is one of my favorite places to Google.  Sounds weird to use both those terms in the same sentence.  What I mean is that I, often, Google something, then go to the entry for Wiki listed in the Google choices.  I know a lot of it is because I trust Wiki; I donate 1-2 times a years to help keep them running. They don’t take corporate funding or political funding to help run them, so they can stay honest.  With most other sources, I feel I must check up and see if they are legit.  So, when Mom and I were discussing some facts about Mr. Donald Trump, I went to Wiki.  Why wouldn’t I?

OMG!  It is not the longest entry in Wiki by any means (I looked that up on Google. “The longest page in the English Wikipedia that is an actual article, rather than a list, is Miscegenation. It’s quite a stretch to call it an “article“, because if you print it, you’ll get 84 pages”), however, I read for nearly 2hours (I don’t read fast) and, finally, stopped when I got bored with it at 3am or so. Susannah, I am sorry, but I don’t much care for history.  In this case, I just wanted facts and, boy, did I get them!

Donald Trump in Wiki 

I will summarize just a portion of this article:

No, no, I won’t.  You read it if you want to (lol).  I will say this:  I had, already, decided that I didn’t care for the man I voted for in 2016.  I have gone on record on this site saying that I, mostly, voted for him because I didn’t want Hillary there (many agree with this, btw), and I still say that.  But, he is not the man I would willingly vote for again, so in 2020 I fully intend to vote for someone else.  I will allow that small particle to remain as to whom I end up voting for, but this is my intent.

As for the article, it stated that fact-finders and other related people/groups have listed him:

As president, Trump has frequently made false statements in public speeches and remarks.[645][646][647] The statements have been documented by fact-checkers; academics and the media have widely described the phenomenon as unprecedented in American politics.[648][649][325] This trait of his was similarly observed when he was a presidential candidate.[650][651] His falsehoods have also become a distinctive part of his political identity.[649]

Trump uttered “at least one false or misleading claim per day on 91 of his first 99 days” in office, according to The New York Times,[645] and 1,318 total in his first 263 days in office, according to the “Fact Checker” political analysis column of The Washington Post.[652] By the Post’s tally, it took Trump 601 days to reach 5,000 false or misleading statements and another 226 days to reach the 10,000 mark.[653] For the seven weeks leading up to the midterm elections, it rose to an average of thirty per day[654] from 4.9 during his first hundred days in office.[655] The Posts reported tally is 15,413 as of December 10, 2019, with the 2019 total more than double the cumulative total of 2017 and 2018.[656]

Over 15,000 as of this past December!

That was enough for me, but I was, somewhat, spellbound by the article and had to read more.  By the time I stopped, I was only marginally certain that I had made that correct choice in 2016.  I still think I would make it today as it was a product of prayer and trust (in God, not Trump).  But it made me wonder how our great country has survived these 3 years.

This is not a call to arms or a call to not vote for Republicans or even Trump should he run or if he can run…it is just an article bringing something I found fascinating to your attention.

Namaste,

Scott
