Dems should pass a law placing the sign "Honesty is the best policy" over the White House door

It would be funny watching old "Grim Reaper" McConnell try to kill the bill. He won't want to allow a vote on it, for obvious reasons. It flies in the face of Republican Party convictions.

But suppose the bill passed? Imagine Trump having to decide to veto the bill or walk past a sign that says "Honesty is the best policy" every day for the rest of his time in the Oval Office. He'd hate the optics, so I'm guessing he'd veto the bill. But how would that look?

1. The members of the Democrat Party would catch fire, or melt if they walked by.

2. Well, then you should be a supporter of the sign.

3. Have you ever seen the movie "The Wizard of Oz"?

Toward the end of the movie the Scarecrow catches on fire. Dorothy uses a bucket of water to put the fire out. Alas, some of the water splashes onto the Wicked Witch of the West. As a result, The Wicked Witch melts away.

In our story the part of the Scarecrow is played by the United States
The part of the Wicked Witch is played by the Democrat Party
The part of Dorothy is played by Donald Trump
And the part of Toto (who ultimately unmasks the Wizard) is played by William Barr.

THE END

4. Then you should be for the sign.

I don't think "Honesty is the best policy" would bother Dorothy. Do you think it would bother Trump, though? I do.

6. They should do that.

Really. It would work for Dems. We should put one up in front of the Senate too.

8. If it *actually* worked, nadler would treat it like a vampire treats a cross or holy water.

And schiff would turn to ash at the mere sight of it.

7. Democrats embracing Honesty? They would spontaneously combust!

9. Look Swifts, it would do you good if you did what Democrats and

primitives need to do, but stubbornly refuse to do.

You need to go and sit down somewhere in solitude and contemplate on your life; why someone born with a great deal of promise turned out such a flop.

Trust me; self-examination, self-analysis is a good thing, and you'd be enriched by it.

10. I don't think you're telling us what you think you are.

Now here's my advice back. Just do what's true and right all the time the best you are able.

12. For two years I have listened to Democrats lying about Trump colluding with ...

Putin. Now you want to put a sign over the president’s door that says, “Honesty is the best policy.”

Every elected Democrat who lied about there being real evidence that Trump colluded with Putin should be required to have that sign above the door to their offices.

Soon there will be undeniable evidence that the Hillary and her Clinton campaign colluded with foreign governments to create the Steele Dossier. Of course the Democrats will argue that was totally fair and acceptable because Trump was doing the same (which he wasn’t).

15. How about the Least Untruthful Possible.

I believe that was Obama DNI James Clapper’s catchphrase.

Yes, honesty is a great policy, but no one in DC has the high ground to lecture anyone else.
