liberals don't give a sh*t about reality or truth. In their minds, if the truth does not side with their politics, then ignore it and create your own version of truth [aka bullsh*t lies] and then spread it as much as possible until others believe it as well.
I've NEVER understood why the TV hosts, the pundits, the book writers, the anchors, all of them, whenever they're discussing politics, especially with someone across the aisle from them on their show, they always treat it as if it's the issue being contested. So what you get is this back and forth bologna on a topic.
When the actual TRUTH is more like this: We're defending this person in the hot seat because this person wears our political party badge. But we know that's not very compelling, so we're going to pretend to make it about the issue.
