On Sunday, Jake Tapper told Kellyanne Conway, “I would like [Trump] to stop lying.” He accused Trump of “continually” lying. But CNN and other news outlets really need to stop lying about President Trump supposedly lying. They couldn’t stop accusing the president of lying in his address last week to the NRA annual meeting.

Libs on my friends list always accuse Trump of lying. If people like Tapper would stop pushing this lie, maybe the people of the country would realize they’re being duped.

In PC Speech Lying = Disagreeing, no more than that. All pejoratives are useful in any context because words have no definitional content, only emotional and the gulf between left and others is regarded by the left as absolute and so vast that the more emotional content in a word the more it is to be used to describe a position or person that is not congruent with the Party Line of the moment.

I’ve been in debates with liberals who say that Trump has told “thousands of lies”. When challenged to name even one, they resort to blocking me or name calling.

By which you mean disagreeing with liberals, or staying an obvious truth liberals don't to hear, correct?

Or when they do, the proof is invariably that some other guy, typically a Democrat or RINO, said the opposite, so obviously that guy is right and Trump is lying.
