You're making generalisations I never made. Potentially a consequence of taking a reply to another forum poster and making a comment that makes it look like I made it against you. Which I didn't. And I can protest against whatever and whoever I want, for any reason I like. That's the beauty of free speech, as I understand it. Now, if I want people to agree with me, then I have to ground my activism in something that makes sense, but this is difficult as "sense" is a personal perception r.e. how we understand the world at large. In this case, you demonstrate a hilariously bad argument yourself, hypocritically, and in doing so expose a key point I've seen in defense of Trump since the election (and before it, actually). Namely, that "Trump lying is nothing new". Now, there are layers of Bad™ here that I will attempt to keep short: 1. Trump lying is hypocritical when the slogans against Hillary involved demonising her for her lies as a politician. Surely, if this was an accepted truism, people wouldn't complain about Hillary's lies - because she's a politician. This was not the case. 2. Trump is not a politician. He founded his campaign on this particular slogan and websites repeatedly covered how people appreciated a non-politician entering the fray. You cannot, logically, apply the defense of being a politician to him. Because he isn't one. 3. "everyone does it so it's not an X-specific problem" is a classic bait-and-switch. The correct way to phrase this would be "everyone does it so it's most definitely an X-specific problem, as well as a problem for everyone else who does it". Hold everyone to account. Don't excuse Trump because "everybody does it" when his anti-Hillary platform ran on skewering her for her doing it. This is quite patently, quite obviously, and quite simply, a double standard.
