Add your name if you're not falling for Donald's lies
Donald Trump read a speech off a teleprompter on Tuesday night without raising his voice, declaring the media the enemy of state, or bragging about sexual assault -- so Republicans and political pundits declared him "presidential."
His joint address to Congress, like every other time Donald has opened his mouth to speak, was filled with divisive rhetoric, lies, and hypocrisy. And while he said a lot of things that had cable news talking heads swooning, his actions in his first 40 days in office do not reflect the promises he made to the American people.
He said he wants to work with members of Congress to make child care accessible and affordable, but just last week military families stationed overseas lost their child care because of his hiring freeze.
He claimed he wants to invest in women's health, but he and the congressional Republicans who applauded him are hell-bent on dismantling the Affordable Care Act and defunding Planned Parenthood.
He said he wants to promote clean air and clean water, but earlier that very same day, he began to roll back parts of the Clean Water Act that protect freshwater streams, wetlands, and sources of drinking water. (Great news for polluters and golf course owners -- not so much for those of us who need to drink water to stay alive.)
While Republicans might have been fooled by Donald's performance, we certainly weren't. We see right through him and his lies -- and we are going to call him out every single time his actions don't match his words.
Add your name to stand with Democrats as we hold Donald Trump accountable:
