Is American Exceptionalism? Is Russian Exceptionalism? Is good?

  • Donald Trump “I’ve done a lot of business with the Russians.”
  • Don Trump, Jr. “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets. We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”
  • Eric Trump:  “Well, we don’t rely on American banks. We have all the funding we need out of Russia.”

Which is worse? :  a) The United States electorate promoted a pathological liar to the Presidency b) The President’s dishonesty, even by an established standard of half-truths and rampant dishonesty, takes political falsehoods to garish new levels c) RE: The Art of Lying, President Trump displays a frightening level of incompetence even in an area where he devotes a tremendous amount of time and effort. d) People still believe him e) All the Above
