The fact that he lied is one thing - getting caught in the lie - well there's the problem. Right?
I think that may be a mortal sin in secular terms.
Hillary Clinton lied. Her husband lied. Sports stars lie. Then, when they are caught, they lie to explain their lie. If they are well enough liked, if they are supported by the right people - they get away with it. Look at Bill Clinton. He was impeached but wasn't forced out of office - his reputation was simply tarnished - and he's as popular as ever.
If I remember correctly, not too long ago Brian Williams was on with David Letterman talking about Charlie Hebdo/freedom of the press and all of that. Letterman was so captivated by him, almost as if he were some sort of oracle with answers to all the problems in the world. But the guy just makes stuff up.
Isn't that queer?
