Americans are used to certain standards of behavior, especially from public figures. Yet we seem to be in times not aligned with standards. The human mind -in the habit of thinking that the standards would be followed - may paint in standards without regard to conscious reasoning.  EO Wilson said in his book Social Conquest of Earth - that humans can begin to create the beginnings of a paradise on Earth if we do three things - use the unrelenting application of reason, have a basic sense of kindness and know who we are. A report by the new york times with title "  Trump repeats lie about popular vote in meeting with lawmakers" made a claim about the popular vote. but did not cite any sources to back the claim.
