President Trump's fact-free zone
Donald Trump’s record of egregious, demonstrable lies is beyond mind-boggling. Up until now, I had considered the most obvious, most outrageous lie to have been this: “I have nothing to do with Russia; believe me, I have no dealings with Russia.” At the time, he was negotiating to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.
A runner-up was this: “If I’m elected president, I will release my tax returns.” Then, “Believe me, I cannot release my tax returns because they’re under audit.” The IRS insists that being “under audit” does not prohibit their release.
But then came the lie so monumental, so important to the American public that surely every pathological liar in the country must be envious. “Believe me, I won’t benefit by the new tax law, nor will my family. My wealthy friends are mad at me for supporting this legislation.” Non-political financial analysts report that Trump and his “mad” friends will benefit by millions every year. His children’s benefit will be close to a billion dollars. Believe him?
One must wonder if what comes out of this man’s mouth is the product of a well mind. Or is it the product of a brilliant, conniving, and conscience-free psyche?
