Did he really say that?

Some of the things that people say, I wonder if they think before engaging their vocal cords. 

Even so, I have been unimpressed with some of what I have heard lately. 

For instance, I heard the president remark about the number of COVID-19 deaths: "It is what it is." Really? 160,000 Americans have died from inept action and that is what the president says?

I would like to think that he meant something else--but I am not sure. It was too pragmatic a statement without any hint of compassion. I watched the interview--the president is more concerned about being blamed for the debacle that is the U.S. response to the coronavirus than he is the toll on Americans and their families. He still doesn't realize that it is his fault. 

I know if this were TV, they would be able to edit the remark and make it better--but it was real life. Real life does not allow for do overs. 

Then yesterday the president said about Biden:

“He’s against God. He’s against guns. He’s against energy, our kind of energy. I don’t think he’s going to do too well in Ohio," Trump said. (Playing electoral defense, Trump claims Biden opposes God)

Really? He's against God? Show me the evidence. Are we talking anti-Christ here?  How can someone say that of a devout, practicing catholic who openly relied on his faith when his son died of cancer? And it was alleged by a man who doesn't know which way is up for the Bible, who has not been in a church since Inauguration Day, and who wouldn't know the truth if it was in front of him that said someone else is against God? Wow! 

I have an idea--Let's make lies wrong again!

Sadly, he didn't say that.
