Tongue swollen with lies

This is a strange image and a stranger idea, it is about a tongue swollen with lies. 
I was thinking about the 'big lie' theory, the propaganda technique used by the Nazi's in the second world war and now the endless lie technique being used by the current incumbent of the white house. 
Little Red Ridding Hood always seems to be my preferred visual tool for expressing horror and revulsion at events and politics. In this image the wolf can eat no more because his tongue is swollen from lying too much. We can but dream and draw and hope for this to end soon.
