Shoved Up Trump's Memory Hole

Trump's "Memory Hole" is getting stuffed.

Black History Month
When Sen. Elizabeth Warren read from a letter by the civil rights icon, Mitch McConnell shut her down to keep the truth out of the Congressional Record. Her colleagues rose to her defense the following day, reading the letter into the record nonetheless.

Truth and Lies
The most essential quality for leadership is not perfection but credibility. People must be able to trust you. ~ Rick Warren 
Kellyanne "Alternative Facts" Conway has come up with another one. Appearing on CNN (putting to lie Trump's claim his people were boycotting CNN), she said people should simply believe Trump when he tells the truth and ignore him when he lies. Of course, Kellyanne forgot to explain how to tell the difference. The best way is to assume everything he says is a lie until proven otherwise.

Wake Up Call
After a long day of coming up with a casus belli for Russia to invade Poland, Trump's national security advisor Mike Flynn was sleeping with visions of sugar plums and goosestepping soldiers marching in his head. At 3 am, the phone range. It was Boss Trump. Flynn bolted awake, fearing something horrible had happened. Nah. Trump just had a silly question that couldn't wait until a godly hour.

This one clearly got out because Flynn was laughing at Trump with anyone would would listen about how he blew off the President with his "don't ask me call an economist" line.
