‘Not Lying’ Is Now Aspirational In The US Presidency As Trump Admits In ABC Interview He ‘Tries’ To Tell Truth
In an astounding admission during an ABC interview President Donald Trump admitted to only being truthful ‘when he can.’ Mr. Trump, who has faced repeated criticism from his political opponents and the media for his frequent bare faced lying, said during his interview to ABC News, “I do try. I always want to tell the truth. When I can, I tell the truth. Sometimes it turns out to be where something happens that's different or there's a change, but I always like to be truthful."
The president’s words tantamount to his admission to lying more often than not. Whilst his admission to being a frequent bare faced liar comes as no surprise to many, opponents and supporters alike who have struggled with Trump’s pretzel shaped versions of the facts surrounding a specific event, it comes as no comfort to know the Commander-in-Chief of the free world and the man with his finger on the button of the largest nuclear arsenal on the planet is a self confessed liar.
Should he ever order a nuclear strike on, say, Texas and New Mexico, then claim Mexico did it to stop American citizens crossing illegally into their country, all except for the clinically insane would recognize this as a typical Trump whopper.
Should he claim his ‘small hands’ are not reflected in the size of his manhood, then again it’s a fair guess the President would be lying.
The problem is, however, between these two extremes, (i.e. nuclear strikes on American soil being very serious and the size of Trump’s dick being of little interest to anyone except Mr. Trump and his wife / daughter Ivanka), there are other matters of importance for which telling the world the truth would seem an absolute.
For example, the president is again rattling his sabre at Iran. We all know the leaders of that country are a bunch of zealots very keen to make their God happy by doing nasty stuff, but when Trump and his acolytes start banging their war drums crying foul on Iraq for this or that unprovable sin, should they be believed? Real people may die, not Trump, or Pompeo, or Mattis etc. obviously, probably not even Ali Khamenei… real people.
So, when Trump starts telling America it’s time to start dropping bombs on Iraq, take a step back and think it through. He may be lying.
And, when he said he never played the golden shower game in a Russian hotel bedroom with a couple of ‘escorts,’ he may be lying.
Or, when he asserts that he’s not being blackmailed by Putin, he may be lying.
Then, when he tells you he was never in cahoots with the Russians to fiddle the 2016 election, he may be lying.
Also, when he tells you climate change isn’t happening because it’s a con cooked up by the Chinese to ruin the US economy, he may be lying.
In addition, when he calls the 7,200 strong caravan of humanity desperately fleeing violence and poverty in their own countries, and seeking a new life in the US a ‘national emergency,’ he may be lying.
‘Who chopped down that Cherry tree, Mr. Trump?’
‘I cannot tell a lie. It was crooked Hillary!’
