Kategoria (ka-te-go’-ri-a): Opening the secret wickedness of one’s adversary before his [or her] face.

I guess it’s hard to call it “secret wickedness.” Everybody knows that you are a liar.  You’ve told so many lies since you’ve been elected President that here may not be enough room in the history books for recounting them. From Australia to Russia, you’ve lied. From Mexico to Sweden, you’ve lied.  From nearly any Point A to any Point B on the map, you’ve lied.

What’s the point of all the lying? You haven’t gotten away with a single lie yet!

Try the truth and see what happens! Jail time? Massive fine? Impeachment?
