Letter: Trump lies hit sour note


Adolf Hitler coined the term “Big Lie.” In his 1925 “Mein Kampf” he wrote that the “broad masses” are more likely to “fall victim to the big lie than the small lie.” Donald Trump’s big lie attacked his 2020 lost election.

But Donald has always been a sore loser. When Trump was a reality TV star on “The Apprentice,” Donald argued that the Emmys were rigged after he was snubbed. During the 2016 Republican primaries, Trump falsely accused Ted Cruz of “fraud” and stealing the crucial Iowa caucuses, hinting that if Cruz won the presidential nomination, it would be illegitimate.

After Trump was nominated, he turned his sights on Clinton. He repeatedly accused Hillary of doing dishonest things without providing proof. Donald said that the 2016 election was “rigged” against him, refused to answer whether he would concede if he lost and eventually said he would only accept the election results “if I win.” After Trump won the 2016 presidential election, but only in the Electoral College, Trump insisted that millions of illegal votes cost him the popular vote. Does any of this repetitive voter fraud strategy sound familiar?

Mark Twain said, “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it does often rhyme.” Donald, change the tune.
