Hi Dan, Yes your interpretation about 45 being honest resonates in my Bernaysian way. I guess it’s all a matter of interpretation and framing. Successive American presidents, as much as British PMs have all hid behind the veil of politics to speak falsely. 45 says it like it is. His alt side of truth as statements, that aren’t evidential, requires no qualification from me. We probably can politely differ on Obama; a different politician, but no one’s perfect. Sometimes, as history has shown we get what we deserve, and then hopefully the clock resets until memories fade again. History is nothing, if not a serial and cyclical narrator.
