      Donald Trump

      Often nicknamed "Liar in Chief" by American citizens, Trump responded to an interview on ABC where he was asked about his mis-statements and untruths by saying that he tells the truth when he can. In other words, he seems to believe that he often cannot help but lie.

      Having faced criticism from the time he lied during his 2016 campaign clear though to his lies where he claims Democrats are responsible for what we know he has caused, his distortions and gross exaggerations are just explained away by him saying "I always try to tell the truth." Huh? Tries?

      Opponents, responsible journalists, fact checkers and the Television watching public seem to believe differently. They say that Trump often distorts, mis-states, and tells blatant lies about a number of issues.

      "The Washington Post says the president has made 6,420 false or misleading claims over 649 days."

      "These, for instance, include repeated assertions about the opposition Democrats' stance on immigration and border controls, the origins of the Russia probe that centres on alleged collusion during the US presidential election campaign, and levels of spending by US allies of Nato."**

      He also claims that Americans believe that media and the press are "Enemies of the People," echoing claims of past tyrants, and in recent days he has claimed that the immigration caravan of migrants has financial support fromDemocrats.

      In my opinion, Trump no longer differentiates between fact from fiction. I believe his lies are from an ingrained habit. His speeches, tweets and campaign rallying cries point to his being lost in a fog of rhetoric that seems to be made up to match his expectations of what he wants people to believe. Unfortunately, his cult members usually do.

      The following report is by Devan Cole, for CNN

      Washington: President Donald Trump, whose time in office has been defined in large part by his frequent falsehoods and misleading statements, claimed Wednesday he tries to be truthful.

      "I remember, you remember well in the campaign, you made a promise. You said, 'I will never lie to you,'" ABC News' Jon Karl said to Trump in a new interview. "So can you tell me now, honestly, have you kept that promise at all times? Have you always been truthful?"
      "Well I try. I mean, I do try. I think you try, too. You say things about me that are not necessarily correct," Trump replied. "I do try, and I always want to tell the truth. When I can, I tell the truth."

      "I mean sometimes it turns out to be where something happens that's different or there's a change. But I always like to be truthful," he added.

      Trump's comments are especially notable coming at the close of a contentious campaign season in which he has repeatedly engaged in smears and falsehoods to advance Republican electoral fortunes, from inflating his rally crowd sizes to accusing Democrats, frequently without evidence, of supporting ruinous immigration policies.
      Last week, former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, a strong supporter of the President, said Trump "is a liar" and that he "should probably dial down the lying."

      "OK, well we both know that he's telling lies. So if you want me to say he's a liar, I'm happy to say he's a liar," Scaramucci told CNN's John Berman on "New Day."
      Last week, CNN tracked Trump's most-repeated claims and found that the President is most accurate during prepared remarks and when touting his strong economic record. But he strays from the truth when improvising with reporters or attacking his opponents, and some of the claims he made simply aren't supported by any evidence at all, the report found.

          I heard that replayed while I was doing dishes a couple of days ago.

          He doesn’t care how stupid he appears anymore ( might have been the toilet paper on the shoe thing, or the non-invite to the Bush/McCain funies) he’s grieving what he construes as a loss, he truly had it in his mind that the majority would come to love him.

              Thanks for the post Opie. I am so fed up with Trump and his minions being allowed to get away with the lies and false statements. Just yesterday, Trump retweeted a video about Luis Bracamontes, an illegal alien that killed 2 Californian police officers. In Trumps tweet, he somehow managed to tie this despicable man and his crime to Democrats saying that, 'it's outrageous what Democrats are doing to this country,' while pop-ups stated 'Democrats let him stay!' This is so far from the truth. Bracamontes came here illegally and was deported in 1997 during the Clinton administration. He returned in 2001 during Bush's time but was deported soon after. He returned again in 2002, still during the Bush administration, and then married an American in order to stay here. In 2014 he committed the heinous crime using an AR-15, being able to obtain one because the Bush administration had failed to renew the assault rifle ban (I specifically didn't use the term 'repealed the assault rifle ban'). We hear blatant lies about the migrant caravan, we hear Trump lying about Democrats on the campaign trail and we hear lies from Republican nominees about their opponents - and these just aren't small bendings of the truth, they are outright lies. How is this leading by (a good) example? One could argue that Trump hears something and actually believes it - but what's happened to finding out facts before spreading untruths? Isn't it human instinct, especially for a person in a position of power, to fact check something before repeating it, or at least have someone to fact check it for them? Some one needs to introduce a bill that explicitly penalizes politicians from spreading bare faced falsehoods. And all these lies are coming from a person who, on a daily basis, demonizes the media for 'fake news!'

                  Good luck with that. Politicians lie every day. They tell you what you want to hear so that you will vote for them, then do whatever the hell they want...usually whatever their campaign donors want.

                  There is supposed to be no "quid pro quo" in our government. Those who give contributions claim there is no quid pro quo, because they are giving money to those who already would vote as they wish. Thus it isn't the money causing them to do it.


                  That is hogwash. I do not care whether the chicken or the egg came first, both are present.

                      S/S Valerie,

                      I'm with you every step of the way! These are deliberate lies are meant to trick people into believing things that are blatantly false. Trump demonizes so many - not just Democrats, although he does that continually. He actually has vilified so many I cannot even keep track. He's not just a terribly incompetent and inadequate Prez, he is also a compromised, and mean man. He is an all around poor excuse for a human being, and he causes pain to far too many, including babies and children. We must try to get him out of our government.
