Dear Editor of the Washington Post,

You recently published a story titled, Trump makes 13 dubious claims at Florida rally when perhaps the title should have been, Trump tells 13 lies to supporters at Florida rally. Isn’t that a more accurate description of what happened? Calling a lie a “dubious claim” is like saying that from time to time my wife gets “disenchanted” with me. (Why his supporters don’t care about his non-stop lying is beyond me. How can lying not matter?)

But whether they care or not, history undoubtedly will so please don’t soft-pedal President Trump’s lies by calling them “dubious claims.” A lie is a lie.
