“I was just reading about that on some blog earlier today,” Jeff said.
“Damn, Jeff, I would have thought it unlikely that you’d be interested in that,” Carolyn said.
“Are you kidding me?” Jeff said. “Who wouldn’t be interested in the huge schism between the President and the truth?”
“I know,” Carolyn said, “but you’ve always seemed so apolitical.”
“Well, I’ve dabbled a little in political stuff to some extent,” Jeff said, “but that moron in the White House instigated this assault on truth with his constant lying, the latest of which is his lie about the path of the hurricane. He even went so far as to alter an official National Weather Service map with his Sharpie. I’m on the side of accuracy instead of his deceitful ways and his bullshit. I didn’t think I could ever have imagined that the actions and words of the head of our government would put the very notion of truth in jeopardy.”
