Where Was Donald Trump Born? He Even Lies About That.

Trump's efforts to portray himself as an up-by-his-own-bootstraps entrepreneur is typical of the the self-made-man myth surrounding someone who was born on third base but refuses to acknowledge his birthplace.

Trump's Big Daddy Lie

Dr. Prudence L. Gourguechon | Posted 09.19.2016 | Politics
Dr. Prudence L. Gourguechon

The Big Daddy Lie is psychologically essential. As children we need to believe there is a powerful grown up who knows more than us. We need him to tell he knows reality better than our fearful minds do and that he'll keep us safe. We need this omnipotent, omniscient father even when we suspect he's not telling the truth.

Eva Lesko Natiello

Do you ever wonder this? Have you ever asked yourself in the middle of the night, as you turn to look at your husband or wife in bed next to you, "Do I know everything I should about this person?"? This is exactly what makes the "marriage thriller" the hottest, compulsively readable genre right now. It's the page-turning thriller that hits closest to home--both figuratively and literally--and is the most unsettling because of this.

GalTime | Posted 07.28.2016 | Women

There's a liar around you everyday -- and it's you! Don't feel badly about it, we all lie to ourselves at one time or another. The problem is that self-lies are the catalyst for self-sabotaging, self-defeating behavior and could keep you from the success you say you want -- and deserve.

Bob Burnett

After Trump's June 22nd speech, Hillary Clinton quipped, "He's going after me personally because he has no answers on the substance [of my proposals]." True. But the underlying reason seems to be that Trump is a pathological liar, unqualified and unworthy of being President of the United States.

If they reverse themselves, the first vote will have been enough of a shock so that the EU reforms itself -- with Britain on the inside shaping those changes. For everyone's sake, let us have a Brexit do-over.
