I’m honestly puzzled by people saying that Trump won the debate.

Is it really better to lie with vigor than to tell the truth with a raspy voice? How is lying with vigor a good thing?

The cascade of lies Trump delivered at the debate, and which he repeats at all his rallies — America is a failed nation?

Really?

Migrants are what’s driving up child care costs — really? — is intended to make voters uncertain about the issues so they’ll give up and just trust in his confidence.

What we need to do is hold on tightly to the truth in order to select policies that will actually help people, and actually deal with real problems.
