Donald Trump, PR spin instead of truth?

A Facebook friend posted the following about Donald Trump:

Donald Trump 20Followed were some blatantly honest comments.

From Commenter #1:

Yep. Liar. Any means to an end. He doesn’t care as long as it benefits HIM.

Commenter #2:

Given that a politician is firstand foremost a salesman by necessity, do the firebreathing far right nutjobs really want to actually pull the lever for a person who is exclusively a salesman?

Commenter #3:

This is actually pretty clever PR, for a NY real estate developer or a Broadway producer. For a president, not so much.

Commenter #4:

You know, to be fair, this might not be a qualification for President, but it might look good on a resume if you’re running for the Prince of … I don’t know … Darkness.

Commenter #5:

Or people just believe too much too fast too easily.

Commenter #6:

This is why I would not want this man as president. We have too many dishonest people in government already. We don’t need another one and face it folks, creating circumstances where people think something is true when it’s not is grossly dishonest. Up front and honest would be so refreshing right now.

Shouldn’t the President of the United States be someone who seriously considers national security, economic vitality, energy freedom, and practices American values … not a PR salesman who fudges the truth and whose idea of honesty depends on what the meaning of “is,” is. We’ve already been there … I thought we wanted better than that.
