    So many issues are "false" or "pants on fire", or is Trump trying to deconstruct his own candidacy? Has he spoken out against these "fact finding" sources?

    (seriously, I'd like to vote for him but something seems a little off-kilter and it seems too overt to seem real.)

    So now Trump fans are questioning fact checking sites because he lies more than any other candidate. WOW. I would say it is amazing, if it weren't exactly the behaviour we expect.

    Oh, look! He lied again today!

    A conspiracy of facts! It must be!

    No, reality is biased against Trump. The man built his entire campaign on outlandish, absurd statements.

    Truth and facts have a well-known liberal bias...

    Fear, Liberal Myths and Endless Rage are the key elements that Trump Haters live with.

    As one who supports neither candidate, I do greatly admire the way Donald Trump has awakened those who walk with their heads up in the clouds. The unabated fear he has caused is great to see.

    It's not a liberal bias...it's just that the right wing seem very prone to creating fiction and than believing the mythical talking points they have constructed. It's like some sort of Republican VR.

    True conservatives reject the notion of an objective reality. It is only liberals that burden themselves with such positivist claptrap.

    Sanity is also biased against Trump.

    Of course, the Right Wing will try to fool everyone, even themselves again, the party that turned spin into bold faced lies. It's all for a good cause, saving our souls. :rolleyes:

    Wait, I am a Trump fan? That's news to me. Now I'm confused because everyone usually calls me "Berniebot" or "$hilling for Hillary"... but thank you for proving a far bigger issue, since I've said on more than one occasion I'm not yet committed to any candidate as such...

    "Niceness" is a concept best relegated to the era before Trump.
