Trump speaks many untruths, but it's Hillary who lies. Not healthy to be so one sided that you're not open to listening to both sides. I find that some of my sister's on the right are so rigid that if the heavens opened and God endorsed Hillary the'd say it never happened! I know one woman who doesn't allow Obama's name spoken in her home. Their kids (the next generation) need to be open minded and embrace differences!
