“Trump certainly has played a role in the GOP’s rapid decline. The former president and 2024 Republican frontrunner’s own capacity for lying is legendary, and his habit of doubling- and tripling-down on disproven tales, sets the standard in Republican politics. It’s no surprise that, given carte blanche to embrace their most cynical selves by a party leader with no moral compass to speak of, some Republicans have discovered that lying is punchier than telling the truth — and the odds of actually being held legally accountable are slim.”
Let’s hope Max is wrong and lying politicians will be held legally accountable!
