Trying to sort through how we catalog #lies and #brokenpromises from @JoeBiden, our demented and lamentable @POTUS46.
When he promised not to ban fracking, and that was repeated by EVERY LAPDANCE MEDIA outlet -- @MSNBC, @CNN, @FoxNews , @CNBC, @FoxBusiness, @washingtonpost, @nytimes, @AP -- is that just one lie?

Or is each separate instance of that lie being repeated its own separate lie?
I mean, we all think some lies are okay, the sort of social lubrications we drop like dander:
