Disraeli’s mistake!

March 8, 2017

Benjamin Disraeli, a great British politician of the 19th century, apparently said:-

“There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.”

Adam suggests that if Disraeli was around today, the phrase might well be:-

“There are various kinds of lies: lies, damned lies,  statistics and then there are Trumpisms.”

    I think Disraeli has Trumpeter covered without needing to add to his bon mot. The Orange Cheeto in Chief quite happily uses all three.
