Jeff Messer is the host of a daily radio talk show on Asheville’s WPEK (880-AM, The Revolution) that airs from 3 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. This column features posts from his daily blog.

The following was posted on March 21:

Headlines are screaming what we all already knew: Trump is either wrong, stupid, or a liar. Perhaps all three.

Wrong for his accusations of Obama wiretapping him, as well as wrong about the innocence of his campaign and White House team’s entanglement with Russia.

The fact that he may actually believe the false facts that he shouted loud and proud from Twitter Tower, might prove his stupidity. If he honestly believed any or all of it. And, if he did all this on purpose, because he thought he could, that would make him an intentional liar.

It’s pretty cut and dry.

Wire tap? It didn’t happen.

Russian involvement? It did happen, and the FBI are looking into how much, and how deep it goes.

Remember when Trump and MANY of his surrogates spoke out about Hillary Clinton and how she was unfit to be president based on the fact that she was under investigation by the FBI? Well, it seems that Team Trump were being looked into by the FBI since July. And, you may recall that Director Comey later said Clinton was off the hook (but only after looking awfully partisan by making her look bad publicly as he and the FBI took a fresh look at her emails in the heat of the election.)

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

That sure sounds like the prevailing philosophy of Trump’s White House (and a good deal prior to occupying that location.) In truth, that is a full quote from Nazi party propagandist Joseph Goebbels. There is some dispute that he actually said that exact quote. Kind of like Abraham Lincoln and the Internet.

Now, how often do you see Lincoln’s name in the same paragraph with the Nazis?
