The opening acts for Donald Trump’s Washington, Michigan rally did not disappoint the live crowd. However, they did disappoint any sane and rational person who happened to be watching at home. A speech given by Congresswoman Lisa McClain was riddled with lies, including that the unemployment rate is at a forty-year high, when in actuality it’s at an incredibly low 3.6%. McClain also gave Trump credit for killing Osama bin Laden, even though bin Laden died in 2011 during Barack Obama’s presidency. She claimed that there weren’t any wars during Trump’s tenure, which is obviously untrue. And then the congresswoman even went so far as to rehash a Trump 2015 talking point that migrants coming through the southern border are “terrorists, convicts, murderers, and rapists.” Even if Trump was to leave the political sphere, we’d still be left with countless Republican politicians like Lisa McClain, who are just as willing to bend the truth and outright lie as Trump has for all of these years.
