Trump depends on Twitter to pass along his lies and baseless innuendos and the social media giant lets him get away with it. Flagging a lie still lets the falsehoods remain out there on the internet and, to make matters worse, the White House uses its Twitter account to repeat them.
Trump never lets fact get in the way of things he disagrees with. He just ignores the fact and lies.
Any briefing or public statement by America’s often-discredited president shows he simply does not tell the truth.
Lies on top of lies: That what Donald Trump thinks is what a president should do. He’s wrong, but, of course, he won’t admit it.
In answers to reporters, the president misdirects, tells them to “calm down” and calls them “fake news.” But the fakery is coming from him.
Trump is a pretender to a throne that doesn’t exist and a dishonest president who has told more documented lies than any other president in American history. And his first term is not yet completed.
The president’s claims, misstatements, distortions, and outright lies strain even his frequent disregard for the truth.
