    trump claims to be a Christian but he can’t quote any passages from the Bible.

    Great talks, but how to make America truly great again, with honesty, integrity, n healthy democracy ?

  • David Welsh on May 1, 2022

    Everything Trump ever did from nationalism (MAGA) to the big lie comes directly from the dictator's handbook. It's not about fascists, communists or any other political denomination, it's about greed and power disguised under whatever political banner is convenient

  • John E on May 1, 2022

    Trump stated without evidence the 2012 election was fraudulent, the 2016 was fraudulent, the 2018 midterms were fraudulent and the 2020 election was stolen.
    What a joke

  • Chris Johnson on May 1, 2022

    Because people are lazy and don't want to put forth the effort to uncover the truth for themselves, and the "lie" is being put forth in an entertaining manner while the truth though it be is being put forth in more of a clinical manner. The presenting of the truth has lacked "presentation" which "the big lie" has not.

    Great points, Dr. Snyder! The people most vulnerable to extending the big lie ? …the people living with exaggerated fears (or on the edge of well-being), the people who cannot stand to face the great errors of slavery and systematic racism (because lies like these are built on other big lies), and those meanly denying opportunities for others (or benefitting from perpetuating falsehood) because of myths related to their own enrichment (bad spirituality). The most critical solutions? For a Free Press, for fierce love of others, for discussion and debate, for rejection of measures to whitewash history – but also for the quiet, educated and caring folk to take a stand! Conservatives and liberals should work to build the peace, to conserve democracy and liberally work for justice. Avoid the tribes and games for those who will play you off one another.

    Professor Snyder is encouraging his readers to take advice from Hitler?
    At least he's honest about it, unlike the Liberals who are conspiring to murder babies and ensure any survivors can't decide what gender they are.
    Lile Elbe (The Danish Girl) went to GERMANY for transgender surgery in the 1930's. The Nazis encouraged it because they knew it could be
    directed at the Left and used as a suicide bomb of ideology.

    Why are republicans allowing trump to ruin democracy

  • John Edward Jones on May 1, 2022

    52%-53% of USA population reads at 6th grade level or less a recent study indicates…That's scary. No wonder we have so many that believe lies. So many could care less about facts and won't investigate to get the truth….The Don was a manipulative big liar way before his WH days… You'd think more people would have recognized this in '15-'16…One of the reasons conservative right DALLAS MORNING NEWS called him UNFIT AND UNQUALIFIED endorsing Hillary.

    A big lie will never pass the smell test.

  • RON GRIFFIE on May 2, 2022

    It’s amazing how some Democrats complain about Biden not delivering on all the promises he made, don’t they realize how trivial some of the promises not delivered weigh against the republicans gaining control again, if they don’t vote in significant numbers they’ll lose the few rights they already have.

  • case barreoltt on May 2, 2022

    2000 mules coming very soon.

  • Schallb on May 2, 2022

    Stop giving it air time. STOP the lies yourself. Talk to Democrats and get the truths of every thing and simply just repeat them over and over and over, on every news time. BECAUSE of the 70 million votes trump got , a lot came from some rich millionaire's that don't want their taxes raised. The little guy can't carry the rich any longer.

    Desantis has created his own big lie in Florida with Disney. The law he signed goes against the state constitution Disney may not even need their attorneys to rectify this error. Even though Disney probably pays much higher taxes through Reedy Creek as necessary to build infrastructure and maintain the Magic Kingdom's brand with impeccably maintained grounds while still paying their required taxes, there has been this air of impropriety where there was none. People have heard all sorts of reports on something untrue that is going nowhere. Desantis was miffed when Disney pulled campaign funds due to the Governor being an authoritarian asshat and taking away citizens rights in many areas. That is not what people will remember.

  • Go4broke on May 3, 2022

    Look at lies like russiagate, rittenhouse and hunters laptop doesn’t exist………imbecilesout there still believe they are true due to cnn and msnbc

  • William Van Vugt on May 4, 2022

    If you haven't already, read Snyder's "The Road to Unfreedom"

  • George on May 15, 2022

    A big lie for a big liar whether it's politics voter fraud or coup or his taxes he is what he is a liar

  • Geraldine Slith on May 19, 2022

    Trump did not keep his promise to make America Great and did not keep his promise to save America. He was too busy playing golf of goofing off with his folly. He should have been checking the store houses to make sure America had enough food on hand at least 5 years in advance which America always had enough food supply stored in the warehousees. He is the reason for 40 year high inflation. I hope the democrats get out front now and repeat over and over how Trump did not keep his promises to save this country and made no effort to make it great again like it was under president Obama. Trump inherented a good economy from Obama. He was to busy trying to get rid of insurance that helped over 30 million people was able to get insurance under Obama. Please repeat over and over how Trump took the baton from Obama and dropped it refused to keep the economy going. He drained away all the hard work Obama had done that made America great. People were happy go lucky ☺️. Regular gas $1.69. Don't blame Biden for trump.lack of
    concern for the people. He went golfing every week end.
    They he would go about having rallies. Talk is cheap. "Drain the swamp, make America Great again was great under Obama. Save America from whom, from what is the question democrats should be asking Trump this day.

  • philip smith on May 19, 2022
