Spin and Dishonesty

image from
Critics of our political culture used to complain, with justification, about politicians’ addiction to spin — their inveterate habit of downplaying awkward facts and presenting their actions in a much better light than they deserved. But all indications are that the age of spin is over. It has been replaced by an era of raw, shameless dishonesty.
--Paul Krugman, "Goodbye Spin, Hello Raw Dishonesty," New York Times

Past alleged White House scandals have been a drip, drip, drip of allegations.
Trump's allegations & revelations have been a firehose in the face.
