Are you as offended as any American with half a functioning brain should be when Donald Trump insults your intelligence with one of his lie-filled tweets of outlandish campaign propaganda that have even less credibility than his architecturally-sculpted hair and orange-hued skin color?
Well, prepare to be offended yet again.
Here is what Trump tweeted out this afternoon right before he walked into a conference room at his Bedminster resort to subvert the constitution and revive his political fortunes with his pandemic relief effort by
fascist fiat, uhhm, executive order.
Sleepy Joe Biden just agreed with the Radical Left Democrats to raise Taxes by Three Trillion Dollars. Everyone will pay – Will kill your Stocks, 401k’s, and the ECONOMY. BIG CRASH! #MAGA

How does Trump lie? Let me count the ways!
First, let’s look at how he refers to his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden.
Well, that “Sleepy Joe Biden” was out today on the type of bike ride that the president would never be able to accomplish without his bitter heart likely seizing up into cardiac arrest. Not nearly as sleepy as the interminable drone of Trump as he reads other people’s words from a piece of paper or teleprompter as his briefings.
Joe Biden can ride a bike, while wearing a mask, AND dropping a joke on Peter Doocy.
trump can barely crawl down a ramp, doesn't wear a mask, and sucks at telling jokes.

Second, when did urging the United States to meet the basic minimum health, safety, and economic needs of the vast majority of its citizens qualify Democrats as being “Radical Left”?
Third, after putting the United States on a trajectory to duplicate the fate of Trump’s oft-bankrupted casinos with a tax giveaway to billionaires and corporations that actually raised the tax burdens for anyone who wasn’t fabulously wealthy over the life of the bill, Trump has the audacity to claim that Democrats will — cue the scary music — “raise Taxes by Three Trillion Dollars”?!?!
The president apparently forgets that his tax cut bill has added nearly $2.3 billion to the national debt before we had the economic collapse brought on by the pandemic.
Which brings us to the fourth big lie in the president’s short tweet: that the Democratic economic stewardship of the economy “Will kill your Stocks, 401k’s, and the ECONOMY. BIG CRASH!”
Look around, Donald, the crash happened while you were golfing. Has he read the latest unemployment statistics?
One needs only to look back at the charts of the economy’s performance under Democratic presidential regimes versus those of Republican presidents to remind yourself that, starting with Herbert Hoover and the Great Depression and running straight through to the GOP-induced economic calamity under George W. Bush in 2008, Republicans have consistently crashed the economy and Democrats have been forced to pick up the pieces, clean up their opposition’s financial messes, and get the country back on track again.
Trump may be increasing his personal productivity by increasing the density of lies per tweet in his latest social media posts, but one would have to be one of the poorly educated people that the president has said he loves so much to buy into this latest load of concentrated, industrial-strength manure that he’s trying to pass off now in his posts.
Let’s commit to getting this insane excuse for a real leader out of the White House as soon as possible. We’ve had our intelligence insulted enough already.
