frIDAY 4/21/2017 CALL TO ACTIVISM FOR DEMOCRACY!
liar liar, trump's made-in-china pants are on fire.
Congress must hold trump accountable for his alternative facts.
“We are sending an armada, very powerful,” President Donald Trump said over a week ago when asked about the tensions in North Korea. As it turns out, that “armada” wasn’t heading anywhere near North Korea. And sadly, some very important allies are now nervously laughing at Trump’s lies (GIZMODO).
Trump's loose lips and penchant for bending the truth has dramatic reproductions for our government's credibility both at home and abroad.
HOW TO USE YOUR VOICE:
Yesterday, we directed hundreds of calls to urge our representatives to take a hard line on bogus facts. Let's do it again.
1) Call the Capitol switchboard: 202-224-3121
2) To Reach Your Representatives, Press 2.
3) To Reach Your Senators, Press 1.

Hello, my name is (YOUR NAME) and I am calling today because I find the President's lack of commitment to the truth to be harmful for our country. Whether it is making up untrue claims about his predecessor wiretapping Trump Tower, or refuting photographic evidence, enough is enough.
I believe it is time we hold our leaders accountable. If we don't stand up now, the integrity and credibility our government is in jeopardy.
There are things Congress can do to stop these alternative facts from becoming a reality. Congress can lean on the president with the power of floor remarks, or if it becomes necessary, public censure of the President.
Please stand up for the truth.
