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.
Blatant promotion of unproven and potentially unsafe drug worries both Trump critics and supporters. What, they ask, is his real reason?
Cornered by the harsh realities of the coronavirus threats, American’s factless president tries to deny things he said, lies frequents and tries to revise history.
First, Trump claimed the coronavirus was a “hoax.” Then he said it could be “handled.” Then the U.S., he claimed, was “leading the way” in fighting the pandemic. Then he would have businesses up and running by Easter. Then he ran out of lies and had to accept the reality and horror. Or has he?
