In a Sunday morning tweetstorm, a former speechwriter for President George W. Bush hammered the conservative media for  "amplifying" the lies that come out of President-elect Donald Trump's mouth thereby causing their readers or viewers to "lose touch with reality."


In a series of posts of Twitter, speechwriter David Frum -- who has long been critical of Trump -- began by pointing out that the president-elect continues to lie about how well he did in the election as he disregards the fact that he lost the popular vote.

"Trump’s lying about the popular vote has dangerous real-world consequences," Frum wrote before accusing the president-elect of suffering from narcissistic personality disorder, and believing "the lies he tells, after he tells them."

Therein lies the problem, Frum complains, laying out step-by-step how enabling Trump aides and an uncritical conservative media will inevitably make Republican lawmakers act recklessly damaging the conservative cause.

See the tweets below:

Bolstering Frum's point that Trump's lies about the election results has become the conservative canon, a recent poll shows that 52 percent of Republican voters think Trump won the popular vote in November, although he lost by 3 million votes.
