More than interesting; it is a very substantial list of the big lies that Trump has told and his followers believed. I’ll quote a couple here, but really read the whole article. TRUTH MATTERS!

Trump underplayed the threat the coronavirus posed while admitting he knew better. For weeks in the fall he spoke of the U.S. “rounding the corner” on the pandemic even as infections rose across the country. He further encouraged his believers to let down their guard by telling them that most people who wear masks get COVID-19, which is far from the truth.


Results are least 300,000 needless deaths, causing millions of permanently health-impaired people, made shambles of two school years, economic ruin worse that 2007-2008. ...

He fired or demoted nearly a half dozen inspectors general responsible for calling out waste and fraud in federal departments.


He doesn’t want any inspector generals looking at abuse, criminal fraud, or merely incompetence.

Given his truth track record, I cannot blindly assume he is leaving for Mira-a-Largo on Wednesday morning as opposed to starting a counterstrike coup from Joint Base Andrews while the nation is focussed on Joe Biden’s Inauguration calling for Martial Law (as Mr. Pillow noted). Trump has aways hated it when anyone get more news coverage than he. I can only hope that coup does not happen and if attempted via his waning “Commander in Chief” status and DoD loyalist plants, it fails. I hope I’m paranoid.
