    although politicians are often accused of lying, the charges are often levied on the basis of predictions (like the one about what the SCOTUS will/should do) and predictions, being about the future, cannot be lies.  A lie is a distortion of what is or what has already happened -- fact.  
    Of course, in order to make that distinction, one has to have a sense of time as a linear sequence in which the present follows the past and the future will come after the present.  Some people, apparently, don't have that capacity.  Past, present and future are all a big muddle in their minds. Their minds are sort of like a junk drawer whose contents are similar in that their are all located in the same place.  If something doesn't fit, they call it a lie.
