If Americans are to make the right choice, politicians’ lies like those spouted by Mike Pence in the Vice Presidential Debate, must be exposed immediately to ensure they make reality based decisions. Voters must be informed.
Mike Pence lies exposed
Mike Pence won the debate in the minds of many people on style. Tim Kaine won on substance. Pence’s train of lies will affect his credibility going forward.
Tim Kaine pointed out that Donald Trump said he did business with Russia and should release his tax returns for transparency. Mike Pence lied by denying that reality. The video shows Trump clearly did.
Kaine pointed out that Trump praised Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-um, Muammar Gaddafi, and Saddam Hussein and believed the world would be safer if more nations had nuclear weapons including Saudi Arabia, South Korea, and Japan. Pence denied that he said those things. The video explicitly shows that Trump did in fact, say those dangerous statements.
Tim Kaine pointed out that both Donald Trump and Mike Pence praised Russian President Vladimir Putin as a great leader. Pence denied it. The video clips prove otherwise.
Kaine pointed out that a Donald Trump and Tim Kaine administration would punish women who had abortions. Pence said that neither he nor Donald Trump would do that. Again the video clips prove otherwise.
Fact checking is not all that hard. The purpose of journalists is to do exactly that. Donald Trump has been successful thus far because reporters gave him a pass for several months given his large TV and online ratings. They gave him a platform to lie to the American people for years.
The media now realizes that Donald Trump could be president, a potential presidency made possible by their dereliction. They are frantically attempting to compensate for their misdeeds. They realize that a ‘President Trump’ is not only a clear and present danger for the country but a threat to their very existence as a free press. After all, a President Trump would likely seek powers from a willing Congress to clip their wings using national security or some other bogus mechanism to do so.
