At sensing the speaker’s true motives?

@RedDeerGuy1 Yep. Sure. OK. I see what you’re trying to do here, buddy. You’re not fooling me.

Perfectly. If they wear a MAGA hat, whatever they say is a lie..

It’s not that I’m good at detecting a liar, I just assume everyone is lying (or at least bending the truth in some way).

Cynical, I know.

Well above average.

I can’t.

I’m just too trusting, and idealistic, and innocent.


That’s the truth.

I believe everyone and have complete faith in human decency.

Because I’m a fucking angel.

And if you don’t think so ask my attorney.

Or the Pope.

Because I’ve dated both of them.

Well if it’s Trump ,or some other Rep/con the easiest way to tell if they are lying ,their lips are moving.

I’m very gullible. I always assume people have good intentions.

This has ended badly for me.

Very well, almost Poirot like sixth sense for sniffing out bullshit.

If they emit an orange radioactive glow as they speak then I’m going to treat everything they say with suspicion.

I’m not great at it, but I am always on the alert that it’s a possibility.
