As I have said, one cannot, nor should one, respond to every asinine tweet of Donald Trump - However...

As I have said, one cannot, nor should one, respond to every asinine tweet of Donald Trump - However...

It is also critical to understand when a tweet is not just wrong, but bad for the country.  For example, this one....



Apparently thousands (at least 133,000) believe this. Worse, in my book, Congressional Republicans and Rance Pribus shrug and say "who knows - I can't prove it isn't true".

We all know or should know it is bullshit. If YOU REALLY DON'T know Paul Ryan, you have a sworn Constitutional duty to investigate, right? Right, when you put your hand on the Bible and SWORE to uphold the laws of the country. Are you suggesting that you are ignoring your sworn duty?

And, normally I could ignore the bullshit that gets tweeted out. But see, here we are setting up a situation where the Republican (winner) says that 3 million people voted illegally.

What if the next Republican looses, but - say - 1 million votes. They have set up a policy where they get to claim voter fraud with a built in base of at least 133,000 that will believe them.

Our country fails when we lose that much trust in an electoral system.
