No sooner had Attorney General William Barr summarized Robert Mueller’s report as failing to exonerate President Trump on the issue of obstruction of justice than Trump claimed “Total and complete exoneration.”

It’s unfortunate, but not surprising, that his followers believe him when he says “no means yes,” or his other daily distortions of truth and language.

What is even more disheartening to see is how low some people in our country have set the bar for acceptable behavior from our president.
