Usually lies contain a small grain of truth. But Trump’s lies in the midst of this pandemic fail that test. There’s no truth to be found in them. Nothing but pure lies. Up to now his allergy to the truth hasn’t come back to bite him too much. But here’s the problem for Trump and his supporters. In this time of a pandemic, his lies barely escape his mouth when they run headlong into people’s daily experience, say with the availability of testing, tells a different story. He can’t spin the present crises as he, Barr and others spun the Mueller report or the impeachment inquiry. And tens of millions understand this.
