Politicians and truth embellishment

Politicians are famous for lying, but they actually embellish the truth. Fabricated lies are too costly if discovered. Instead, they enhance their accomplishments, pose as family men when in reality they are neglectful husbands or parents, exaggerate what they can effectively achieve in office and  pretend to care for those who they represent. The smiles are fake, the handshakes are fake, the friendships are fake.  The hard truth is that the majority of politicians are in it for one reason only: personal gain. Whether it is financial gain, power seeking, ego stroking or influence, they will say whatever their constituents want to hear. Campaign strategists tell them what to embellish and what to downplay or to hide. It’s a sad reality.
