Thursday, May 28: Donald Trump's Alternate Universe — Incoherence, Paranoia, Self-Aggrandizement, Diminishing Mental Stability

Donald Trump was warned about the emergence of SARS-CoV-2 in November 2019. Now it's almost eight months later and he has done next-to-nothing and still has no plan for either the pandemic or the economic depression it has caused.

Twitter sticks an inoffensive nudge under two of Trump's tweets (but does not delete or edit them in any way and does not label them as lies) and two days later, Trump signs an executive order aimed at controlling social media companies.

The executive order tests the boundaries of the White House's authority. In a long-shot legal bid, it seeks to curtail the power of large social media platforms by reinterpreting a critical 1996 law that shields websites and tech companies from lawsuits. But legal experts on both the right and the left have raised serious concerns about the proposal. They say it may be unconstitutional because it risks infringing on the First Amendment rights of private companies and because it attempts to circumvent the two other branches of government.
If Twitter had any backbone, it would respond by suspending Trump's account for hundreds of violations of the company's posting policies.

Lies, Dripping Off Your Mouth Like Dirt

Lies, Lies In Every Step You Walk

Lies, Whispered Sweetly In My Ear

Lies, How Do I Get Out Of Here?

But . . .
