  • Yes, quite often actually.
  • Read My Lips... What do YOU think??? Or is it only wrong when the guy YOU like gets caught in his lies? Oh, wait. Bush didn't lie, the situation changed, so what he said didn't happen. That didn't stop Liberals from CALLING him a liar though, did it?
    • Mr PantsFellDown
      Yea, the situation changed", THAT'S what happened. He didn't intentionally say it SO emphatically, as to employ the absolute immutable under NO circumstances EVER "read my lips" phrase. No. What the evil Kennedy-killing jerk said was "unless the situation changes". Yea. Thanks. We normal people need brainless people to point imaginary crap like that out for us, or else we might not be aware what the republican POS's want us to imagine for their evil propaganda needs. SO thank you!
    • Mr PantsFellDown
      So that's a yes.
  • Preferably not in public. Private conversation OK with me.
  • Every time you believe it to be true. He is the head man in charge of a country that protects freedom of speech so I'm sure he is expecting it.
  • When is it not to call any politician a liar? They are just a cut above criminals anyway
  • I'm certain there are several times and places you can do this, but you also have to be smart enough when to keep your mouth closed, especially when you are representing your state. People expect you to know when to speak so you won't look stupid.
  • if he is a liar, such as the case with out last president...
  • If he lies, in the right forum, it is entirely appropriate. However, it does not justify someone who is a member of Congress rudely yelling "You lie!" during a speech by the President. No matter what your politics are, and no matter how much you dislike the President and his policies, you should show respect for the office, whether it is George W. Bush or Barack Obama.
  • No; it wasn't even appropriate when they did it to Bush.
  • It depends on what the meaning of the word is, is?
  • Yes, but like sex there is a time and place for everything.
  • Yes, if it's true..
  • yes, if whoever the president is, is lying, he (or she) should be called out on it.
  • Yes, in the right time and place, they are adults act like it.
  • yes especially when they are lying
  • Only when in private company, because you'll be put on a list somewhere to be rounded up for a detention center if you say it where suits can hear you. Like on the internet.
  • Yes. Practically always. Rosewelt talked about it: "The President is merely the most important among a large number of public servants. He should be supported or opposed exactly to the degree which is warranted by his good conduct or bad conduct, his efficiency or inefficiency in rendering loyal, able, and disinterested service to the Nation as a whole. Therefore it is absolutely necessary that there should be full liberty to tell the truth about his acts, and this means that it is exactly necessary to blame him when he does wrong as to praise him when he does right. Any other attitude in an American citizen is both base and servile. To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or any one else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else." "Roosevelt in the Kansas City Star", 149 May 7, 1918 regards JakobA
    • Mr PantsFellDown
      That's impressive and thank you but - not unlike Adolph, when he was new in office and still setting up for full control - Kelly Ann has told us to "be careful what we say" (regarding ANY negative statements about heir trump.
  • Evidently so. And senators, too!
  • if you can prove he's lying, yes, as with anyone else
  • Certainly. No American is above such an accusation (unless he isn't lying).
  • That depends. Everybody thinks politicians lie like most people breathe, and if every politician was the stereotype, they'd be right. People have a tendency to see in black and white, when in fact a personality is quite grey, with both good and bad capabilities. It is also prudent to study out the case thoroughly, hearing both sides of the arguments, and researching on your own before you ever say anything like that. This way you will be able to more accurately judge what is going on, while taking it with a grain of salt that comes from the bias of their websites and arguments.
  • Yes, since 1974. It all started on an August 9th afternoon when Tricky Dicky resigned for being a crook and a liar. Just went from there! Little lies and some big ones have been thrown around since then. Free speech dictates you can call em as ya sees em!
  • no republican has ever lied ever. republicans have halos. republicans are like jesus. they care about people and helping and telling the truth or else it would hurt deep inside, and many macaroni pictures would need to be constructed to fix that. To quote: truth is republicans, republicans is truth. Conversely, libtards are evil scum who lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie (takes breath) lie lie lie lie. Oh by the way, everything I'm saying is a lie.
  • Yeah, if he is a liar, call him a liar to his face.
  • 5-2-2017 Politicians don't actually lie, it's only that they have to represent a lot of people with conflicting interests.
  • If he's lying then yes! I wouldn't though.
  • Trump is an habitual lier. Truth is truth
  • Not casually but there has never been a president, before now, who was so willing to make statements as facts that were unsubstantiated or lies / exaggerations that were easy to fact check. It is very important not to allow that behavior to EVER be justified and that includes calling a liar a liar.
