Have the values of honesty and truthfulness lost importance with President Donald Trump in the White House? To try to answer these questions, PolitiFact California reporter Chris Nichols talked with half a dozen delegates at last weekend’s state Democratic Party Convention in San Francisco.
Delegates were asked about the importance of those values in their choice of candidates. Since the stage has been set by Trump — who has had some struggles with the truth — the question is: do people feel that the truth has been degraded?
Some said we live in a “post-fact” world. A place where ‘truthiness’ from our politicians is good enough. That word, “truthiness,” was coined by Stephen Colbert, host of CBS’ “The Late Show.”
