in Myths and Fallacies

In 2016 it is, of course, common knowledge that anyone who trusts e-mail messages promising wealth from Nigerian princes is a complete fool.  So why in 2016 is it not knowledge equally as common that anyone who trusts political messages promising wealth from politicians is no less a fool?  After all, the public pronouncements and prognostications of politicians are just as absurd and unbelievable as are the e-mail pronouncements and prognostications of the alleged representatives of Nigerian princes.
