Trump's Lies

dignindignin Posts: 4,519
Someone suggested in another thread that there should be a separate thread dedicated to Trump's Lies. I think that's a good idea.

Here is a start, add to it as needed (which should be a lot).




The complete list of all 42 false things Donald Trump has said as president
The Star’s running tally of the bald-faced lies, exaggerations and deceptions the president of the United States of America has said, so far.

    You do know these alternative facts are done on purpose just to create his much needed DRAMA! I think he enjoys the chaos because it brings more attention to President Trump, something that seems to be constantly massaged.

    Unfortunately my wife is hooked on CS. However, I'll take a half hour of CS over Young & The Restless or any other U.S. soap. My wife asks so little of me, I could never deny her this small guilty pleasure... and as you say, it's good for a laugh every once in a while. ;)

    jesus, he is just so inadequate in every way, he constantly needs to reassure himself and trying pathetically to convince everyone around him how great he is.

    he said that obama likes him and that he can feel that obama likes him.

    wrong. obama thinks he is a horribly unqualified asshole, just like most of us.

    he said nordstrom is treating ivanka unfairly by dropping her line. wrong.

    her clothing line has not been selling, and it is worse since he won the election.

    if the basic principle of business in a capitalistic economy is to supply a need and make a profit, why would a business waste shelf space on poorly selling merch? this is example number one of why trump is a shitty business man.

  • The one thing about this thread is the following: is Trump deliberately lying? Or is Trump revealing his level of lunacy? Does he believe the things he spews?

    I think he firmly believes whatever people tell him to

    He could be, but he is the president. So I have to go under the assumption he has the mental capacity to serve and is not sick. Therefore he is a liar.

    When he speaks it looks to me like he believes every word of it .

    On that note.

    New bill would require Donald Trump's White House to hire a psychiatrist amid fears for President's mental health
    'If there are questions about the mental health of the president of the United States, what may be the best way to get the president treatment?'

    I'm not sure that being the POTUS affirms either of one's truthfulness or one's mental clarity - the only thing it seems to guarantee is one's ability to manipulate and to develop strong connections with powerful people.

    It obviously doesn't....but you would hope that it would.

    So here are our options. He is mentally ill or a liar......or both.

    Since I have not seen a diagnosis that he is mentally ill, I have to assume he is a liar.
