The inspiration for the debate was Chump's statement that privately several past president have told him that they wish they had done what he is doing in promoting "the wall." This is beyond a lie. It sounds delusional. According to all known sources, individual 1 has not spoken to any former president since he took office. It is inconceivable that any of the living presidents, including W would have endorsed what he is doing. He can't possibly think that anyone would believe him. Is it possible that swimming around in his head this really happened?
Then there is the pathological lying point of view. His thousands of lies have been well documented. The one that I most recently focused on was his statement that the president who had the greatest election victory ever cannot be impeached. Bragging is one thing. This is beyond bragging. As a perfect rejoinder to Chump there is Richard Nixon. Without question he would have been impeached had he not resigned. In 1973 Nixon won 49 out of 50 States' electoral votes. Less than two years after the election he was gone.
Chump has lasted longer than Nixon even though he is far more venal and far less competent. That is because Chump has had a complicit Congress. That has now changed. It may be that Chump will survive for two more years. But with all the material already available, and more to come, Congress or the criminal courts can get rid of Chump more quickly than Nixon. Stay tuned.
