It’s ironic that one of the most oft-quoted brilliant sayings of Mark Twain was probably not said by him. It’s even more ironic when you read the quote itself: “It’s easier to fool people than to convince them they have been fooled.”
Regardless of who actually said it, this is exactly what we’re seeing today. Donald Trump has fooled millions of people into believing his every word. His own lies are too numerous to list in any-sized blog post, yet he’s made the “lyin’ Ted” moniker for Ted Cruz stick. He’s changed his opinions faster than most people change their oil, yet with every new iteration of a policy proposal his followers embrace them as gospel. He has truly fooled the masses… just like Barack Obama did for six years. Even today, in the wake of his failed Presidency, he still has millions of fans who adore him. Hopefully, we won’t see the same trend drive American politics with Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton at the helm.
