You've heard the term, "water seeks its own level," right? Donald Trump's nominee for Budget Director learned what it means in real time when he was forced to testify that Trump's inaugural crowds were smaller than Obama's ...

In a few words, rather than asking questions about budgeting philosophy, our U.S. Senate was reduced to using simple props in an effort to determine if Trump's nominee for Budget Director is as fact challenged as the man who nominated him.

Think about what this means.

Because Donald Trump has such a difficult time with the truth our U.S. Senate has to waste time determining whether his nominees understand what it is. The only thing missing in our increasingly vaudevillian-like world were the satirical song routines.

This is how low it's going to go during the Trump administration.

Then again, it just might get worse.

After claiming, in yet another lie, that millions of illegals voted during the election, which caused him to lose the popular vote, Donald Trump Tweeted this morning that he will ask for a 'major investigation' into allegations of voter fraud.

Here's just one problem with President Trump's Tweet. He's calling for an investigation into voter fraud even though his own attorneys argued there was no voter fraud when they asked the courts to shut down (Green Party) Jill Stein's recount requests.

So this is what we have ... because the President of the United States needs to lie in order to bolster his ego, and convince others that he's more popular than he really is, he's going to waste millions of dollars and countless resources so he can say "we're investigating the allegations." Then, presumably, President Trump can feel better about himself.

So, yeah, America is now Trump's therapy tent.

It's going to be a long 4 (3? / 2?) years.

Sigh ...

UPDATE: And the plot thickens ...

From The Hill, "Tiffany Trump is registered to vote in two states ...", and from CNN, "Trump cabinet nominee Steven Mnuchin is also registered to vote in two states." MSN is also reporting "Steve Bannon registered to vote in two states despite Trump's cries of  'voter fraud.'
