“A lie keeps growing and growing until it is as plain as the nose on your face”. — Jimmny Cricket

His only tragic flaw was that he lies easily and often. Whenever he does so his nose begins to grow and grow so that the people he is not telling the truth to watch as his nose grows and grows and grows.
This dramatic effect got me to thinking about the current crop of Trump appointees who not only tend at times to distort reality and fudge the facts but also shamefacedly attempt to cover their tracks by nervously pointing their index finger in the air and shouting out their innocence.
In the above photo Jeff Sessions (R) , the 84th Attorney General of the United States, is raising his right index finger to argue a point of contention about his ever meeting a reputed Russian diplomat on two occasions. The extended finger may be serving as proof positive that he is attempting to be candidly honest with the questioner.
Sean Spicer, who is serving as the 30th White House Press secretary in the Trump WHite House, tends to favor his left index finger and uses it just as adeptly and threateningly to those reporters attending the daily press briefings who dare t ask him question that might reflect negatively on the president .
President Trump uses the more papal and conciliatory extended arms and open hand approach to assure his audiences that he is their friend and that the press, the newly defined enemy of the state, is trying to taint his effective performance in the Oval Office.
If only more politicians would fall sway to this physical manifestation the trusting electorate would then be able to interpret the truth from a bushel of malarkey delivered by its often trusted politicians. — gc
