When He Lies, He Speaks Out of His Own Character

You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. John 8:44

I have spent most of this week listening to and reading what Donald Trump and his supporters are saying and must say that the level of lying coming from them has taken on a supernatural character.  If any of them have said a single thing that is true, it must have been out of exhaustion from lying with all their might.  Literally everything I've read from them that I've checked out before or this week has been a lie, most of them enormous whoppers of lies.  

It took the Donald Trump campaign and the events of the past week to make me consider that there really might be such a thing as the devil and that some people give themselves over, entirely to it.  You can call it selfishness, you can call it sadism, you can call it any number of personality defects but when you see it at work in so many people all working to do evil all at once, it makes you wonder what is coordinating it.  This is more than just natural dishonesty, banal evil, this is something entirely out of the ordinary level of lying.  

How ironic that it was set off by a banal, self-righteous, legalistic Babbit like Comey.
