If you liked Republican lies in 2016, you’ll love the 2020 election

You’ve probably heard this joke before, but how do you know if a politician is lying? Answer: his or her lips are moving. An appropriate response, but when it comes to Trump and the GOP, the answer could also be it’s election season.

Republicans have had varying degrees of control of the Congress and the White House over the past 8 years, yet with all that power, they have exploded the national debt, failed to repeal Obamacare, failed to defund Planned Parenthood, failed to fix immigration … well, you get the idea.

Now, to be fair, they have succeeded in a few areas. They’ve succeeded in dismantling the Second Amendment by banning bump stocks and by advancing Red Flag laws, succeeded in increasing Planned Parenthood funding … so it hasn’t been all failure.

You’d think that with such a dismal track record, Trump and the GOP could at least come up with a few new lies for the voters. But I guess they’re of the mind that it’s best to dance with the one who brung ya!

So, prepare yourself for a 2016 Redux because if you liked the lies Republicans told you in 2016, you’re going to love their 2020 campaign.

Though there are many more examples, here are just a few of the recent lowlights in no particular order. Note: the word promise is where you’ll find the lie.

Do you remember when the Republican party was known as the party of free markets, free citizens, and smaller government? Good times.

We learned yesterday that Trump and the GOP will use distractions like Robert Mueller’s investigation to hide their lies of the past, but they will also recycle as many lies as necessary in their vain attempt to win in 2020.
