Trump - the protector of peace and harmony? Right.

 article about trump is lying again
After the bomb scare yesterday that was targeted at Clintons, Obamas, and CNNs office, Trump said that "No nation can succeed that tolerates violence or the threat of violence as a method of political intimidation, coercion or control. Such conduct must be fiercely opposed and firmly prosecuted."

And then of course, he blamed the media. He said that "As part of a larger national effort to bridge our divides and bring people together, the media also has a responsibility to set a civil tone and to stop the endless hostility and constant negative and oftentimes false attacks and stories."

Now, it's all right, media should help. But media is not promoting violence. Media is not saying they will pay for court fees of people sucker-punching their fellow human beings. That's what Trump does.

The media isn't making fun of disabled people, that's what Trump does.

The media isn't dividing the people, that's what Trump does.

The media isn't saying white supremacy groups are good groups like any others, or promoting their talking points, that's what Trump does.

The media has a responsibility to set a civil tone, sure, but even more so the President of the United States has the same responsibility. But even if you're a Trump supporter, you don't need an example of Trump's "non-civil-tone".

The media has the responsibility not to report false attacks and false stories, but so does the President, who should be leading by example. Yet, most of the time, the man is lying. Again, we don't need an example of his lies, we all know he's doing it, but nevertheless according to Politifact Donald Trump's File 33% of his statements are false, 22% are mostly false, and 15% are so false that they couldn't be further off. Of course, 5% of his statements are actually true, 12% mostly true and 15% half true as well. Even he can't lie 100% of the time. But the man really, really lies a lot. So when talking about endless "negative and oftentimes false attacks and stories", is he actually talking about himself in third person?
