As unknown to the world of politics as anyone I have ever seen

Here is one example of Trump dishonesty from a post titled Donald Trump Lies.

I once received a tip that Trump and Richard Nixon had had a lengthy meeting in Trump’s office. Trump said he knew nothing about it. I ran the story, not only because I had an excellent source, but also because a Nixon aide confirmed it.

Got it? Trump denied to some journalist meeting with the President of the United States when in fact he really had, and this is classified as a lie. My take: Trump doesn’t even care if other people know he met with the President, and second, he can keep a secret. Third, he seems to have been dealing at a very high political level for quite a long time. Trump is as unknown to the world of politics as anyone I have ever seen.

Meanwhile, back in the world of Republican politics and the idiots who end up in Congress, we have Paul Ryan. Does he not have even the most basic irony-detection device?

House Speaker Paul Ryan is refusing to support Donald Trump as the Republican nominee for president, insisting Thursday that the businessman must do more to unify the GOP.

And just what is the bit that Ryan is doing towards achieving this unity? You might well ask since no answer is at all obvious to me.
