Do we think that T's followers believed all of his lies, or just thought
they didn't matter?  Teflon like Reagan?  Essentially treated like a god?
The bio of Washington I just finished showed me that a large percentage of
the people want a kinglike figure to adore/worship, and faults didn't seem
to matter (who was going to do that to Hilary? as a side question).  One of
my areas is persuasive communications and what is going on these days is
highly interesting and in some respects inscrutable.  bill w
