You make a good point. Trump is surrounded by people who, like him, have learned to lie their way

out of trouble and into positions they desire. It is an ingrained habit, and they don't really have any other strategies to see them through life. They also are not intelligent enough to remember all their lies and make their stories consistent over time.

Good article. It is interesting how comedy is one way we get used to new ideas and changes in

society's norms. Helps us see the absurdities and even the idiocies of customs we take for granted. Seinfeld's comedy is a good example.

I think the exploitation and the reduction of women to lesser, child-like beings, is the crime here,

not necessarily hate per se. It is true that they hate feminists and anybody else who stands up for women's right to be in every way citizens with all the rights that men take for granted. But there is something more subversive and more horrible than hate in the agenda to reduce women to chattel or child-like wards of men. I don't think Southern plantation owners hated their slaves unless they tried to escape slavery or challenged their owner's authority over them. They benefited from the labor, and the sense of superiority they enjoyed by virtue of being a slave's master
