    Many folks are being infected with Trump bitterness and there is no cure.

    The infection grows.

    Sad!! There is no cure.

    Yup. They all tell some lies. But no one can hold a candle to Trump. Not even close.

    “I am proud to shut down the government for border security,” Trump told the Democratic leaders. “I will take the mantle. I will shut it down, I’m not going to blame you for it.”

    How many days later?

    “ The Democrats now own the shutdown“

    Less than a week?

    I challenge the Washington Post to list, word for word, those 6420 lies in 649 days attributed To Trump. Wowie ! And all other politicians are known for being so 'simon pure', when it comes to telling the truth. And of course, euphemisms were invented for not having to tell the truth. Half-truths and omitted details work pretty well, too. Actually, lying isn't limited to politics or used cars; it's pretty common and we all need work in that area. @ Joe Blow - You must surely be disappointed in all, save one or two, our Presidents of the last 100+ years.

    Since the Deseret News believes that governments were instituted of God for the benefit of man; and that God holds men accountable for their acts in relation to them, both in making laws and administering them, for the good and safety of society, the Deseret News will continue to look at the importance of honesty and integrity next month.

    The Deseret News also believes that governments necessarily require civil officers and magistrates to enforce the laws of the same; and that such as will administer the law in equity and justice should be sought for and upheld by the voice of the people if a republic.

    Our Republic has seen Government officials in the past that have a difficult time being honest and having integrity.

    Our nation requires honest and good people.

    Utahns have let politicians push honesty aside as citizens that believe in honesty and integrity. The question that some Utahns answer for themselves about being honest with everyone should be modified at voting time.

    Do you elect honest people with integrity as government officials?

    We should require elected officials to be honest in all their dealings as they make and enforce laws locally, statewide and nationally.

    "Lying and falsehoods have come front and center, whether it's the president claiming the media reports "Fake News" or columnists and reporters calling out the president for repeatedly telling falsehoods or misleading statements, as the Washington Post claims he did "

    You really need to cite the Washington post (or any other source) for reporting about "the president repeatedly telling falsehoods or misleading statements"?

    It happens daily. Just listen to what he says.

    I find it ironic (and sad) the the most powerful person on earth makes false statements virtually daily and has the gall to complain about fake news. Anything our president says is newsworthy. And he is the single biggest source of Fake news.

    And he gets a complete pass from his ardent supporters.
