You know what's good about being an old-fashioned, traditional, even kind of simple-minded liberal or conservative, who's just in favor of obeying the law and telling the truth? You can oppose frauds and liars on all sides. You can criticize both Donald Trump and Jussie Smollett.

It's been accused of hyperbole, and it's true it focuses on the worst-case scenarios, but I think that it is fair to do so, as so much coverage in mainstream media focuses instead on the best-case scenarios!
