Here lies the secret to Trump’s rise (Sean Illing) from Salon
"Trump has tapped into his supporters' hunger for order, jingoism and a world painted in black and white. ... Politico analyzed nearly five hours of Trump’s speeches and news conferences, roughly a week’s worth of words. The Donald averaged a lie every five minutes. No matter the subject – poll numbers, his record, domestic policy, foreign policy, our trade deficit with China, his personal wealth, or his approach to lawsuits – Trump lied and exaggerated with perfect dexterity, like a man with no compass or shame."
