Just as testing increases COVID-19, and racism and police brutality have only increased because of phone cameras… Donald Trump’s lies also keep accumulating because people keep counting them. Therefore, Trump will vanquish lie-counting by executive order today. No need for him to check on the legality, feasibility, or prudence of this. Why bother?
