Since his inauguration in January 2017 to July 31, 2018, Trump has made 4,229 statements that were not true.
Beyond the rallies, Trumpism continues apace, a potent cocktail of economic nationalism, opposition to immigration and vicious attacks on his opponents.
Despite its early denials, it has become clear that Facebook (along with other social networks) has been an unwitting purveyor of “fake news."
The world has become worn down by Trump's bluster and used to his constant stream of lunacy. But this numbness shouldn't lead to the normalization and acceptance of his aggressive outrageousness.
