- Reaction score
- Political Leaning
Now, to the most obvious/blatant lies:
- 2nd longest acceptance speech by a presidential candidate in U.S. history. 2nd only to the acceptance speech Trump gave in 2016. (Yes, Trump is a long-winded, lying gas-bag).
- Just a grotesque desecration, using the White House as a partisan political prop. The sight of two 10-foot tall Trump/Pence campaign signs on the front lawn of OUR PROPERTY (i.e. the WH) was the stuff of tin-pot dictatorships and/or monarchies...NOT the greatest democracy in the history of humanity, The United States of America. Just disgusting and embarrassing to any decent American.
- EVERY single cabinet official sitting in the front row tonight was in BLATANT VIOLATION of the Hatch Act, as was Ivanka the moment she began her campaign speech. Just one more in the endless string of desecrations of the Constitution and the rule of law under this criminal presidency.
- The presence (in camera sight) of the newly erected iron fencing surrounding the WH (to keep real Americans out) was symbolically stunning.
- The whole damn family is, objectively, a bunch of lying, amoral cretins.
- Not one mention of the 10+ million small businesses that have failed in the last 7 months.
- A guest list of 2000+ GOP VIP's, and ZERO masks, ZERO social distancing. Trump told the world that he's the moron who held a Super-Spreader Event...and televised it! And all of them signed waivers to be there. Trump people are such idiots!
Now, to the most obvious/blatant lies:
- COVID-19 Cures: No, there is NOT an approved "life saving therapy" for COVID-19. And there is ZERO change of a proven vaccine for COVID-19 by the "end of the year". ZERO.
- COVID-19 Treatment: No, convalescent plasma is NOT yet proven to be an effective treatment for COVID-19. It has shown promise, but has not be proven effective yet.
- COVID TESTS: The U.S. has the WORST COVID19 Testing system in the developed world, NOT "the best". We have 4% of the world's population, and 25% of the world's deaths due to COVID-19. Trump's performance has been an utter disaster. Worse that Bush's response to Katrina, by orders of magnitude that are practically immeasurable.
- Abortion: Joe Biden does NOT support abortion up to the moment of birth.
- COPS Endorsement: The NYPD has NOT endorsed Trump.
- The Wall: Trump has NOT built 300 miles of border wall. According to TRUMP'S OWN DHS, a GRAND TOTAL of 3 MILES of new wall has been built under Trump's leadership. And Mexico has NOT contributed ONE CENT to the process.
- Veterans Health Care: Barack Obama signed into law the Veterans' Choice Act, not Trump.
- Bringing our Troops home: Trump has NOT brought home the troops. There are, as of this very day, MORE troops stationed abroad than when Trump took office.
- Ending Wars: Trump has NOT ended a single war, as he promised (and as he claimed/lied tonight).
- Energy: Joe Biden has NOT promised to end energy production in the U.S.
- The Suburbs: Joe Biden has NOT pledged to "abolish the suburbs".
- Pre-Existing Conditions: As Trump promises to "protect pre-existing conditions" the FACT is that Trump's own DOJ is arguing in multiple federal court cases RIGHT NOW to end ALL pre-existing conditions protections under the ACA. The seminal case is set to be argued before the USSC exactly 1 week AFTER the election (i.e. November 10). If successful, pre-existing conditions protections will no longer exist for anyone. This is one of the most sinister lies of all, and that's saying a lot, given the mendacity of this the most dishonest president in U.S. history.
- Gas Prices: are not historically low, and (more importantly) have NOTHING to do with any Trump policy.
- Black/Brown Unemployment: the FACTS show UE numbers have simply continued the SAME downward trajectory that Trump inherited from Obama....while the median income trend has worsened (even BEFORE the pandemic hit).
