Frauds can be slippery, but they give us clues:
• A person who thinks he is smarter than everyone else is usually a fraud.
• A person who claims to “hire only the best people” who then get indicted, convicted, and sent to prison is a fraud.
• A person who calls Nazis very nice people, and then criticizes other people’s anti-Semitism, is a fraud.
• A person who publicly lashes out against illegal immigrants, and then secretly hires them as cheap labor for his golf courses and hotels, is a fraud.
• A person who dodged the military draft and cheated on his taxes, and then hugged the flag in front of crowds, is a fraud.
• A person who claims to “make America great again,” but coddles dictators who kill American citizens and fails to confront an enemy who interfered in our elections, is a fraud.
We need to be wary of such people in case they should ever run for public office. Of course, if that should happen, surely no self-respecting political party would support such vile persons. Religious organizations involved in politics would condemn them — because supporting them would be “fake religion.”
