Falsehood flies, and the Truth comes limping after it, so that when Men come to be undeceiv’d, it is too late; the Jest is over, and the Tale has had its Effect.”--Jonathan Swift “Facts are a stubborn thing”--John Adams “People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular. I call it truthful hyperbole.” --Donald Trump in The Art of the Deal

T
ruthful hyperbole” as defined in the last quote above by Donald Trump may go a long way in explaining, at least partially, why he won the presidency.

“We cannot allow a beachhead of terrorism to form inside America”--First speech by Donald Trump to a joint session of Congress.
