Ever noticed how the news media appends words like “without evidence” to claims President Donald Trump makes?
I don’t blame them. Our president’s endless adventures with falsehood are undeniable. The man lies, with bald-faced constancy, about things both trivial and consequential. The examples are far too numerous to list here.
Yet while Trump may be the most blatant practitioner of fabulism in the American political class, is he the only one?
I’d like to see the “without evidence” tag applied more often.
For instance, just last month, the American Civil Liberties Union presented Christine Blasey Ford with a courage award for her high-profile accusations of sexual assault against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation process.
