Dear Richard Blumenthal (Trump Jr. Committed Treason): You’re a Liar

Via John


If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything (Mark Twain)

A half-truth is a whole lie (Yiddish Proverb)
Dear Richard Blumenthal,
You’re a liar.

Despite the fact that you are Connecticut’s leading law enforcer, apparently no one ever taught you the difference between the truth and a lie.

There are four ways to lie in the court of public opinion:
  1. By commission — e.g., saying you served in Vietnam when you haven’t.
  2. By omission — e.g., by failing to note that you spent most of the Vietnam years assiduously trying to AVOID military service.
  3. By understatement — e.g., like saying “on a few occasions I have misspoken about my service.”
  4. By exaggeration — e.g., “When we returned, we saw nothing like this’’ (when speaking about Vietnam veterans as if you were one of them).
You’re four for four.
