Equating peaceful protests with violence and lying about what is happening in the cities is his latest pathetic gamble to recover from his failures and mistakes. It is typical Trump.
Trump never lets fact get in the way of things he disagrees with. He just ignores the fact and lies.
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.
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.
As president, Trump believes he is still a self-proclaimed “super-salesman” and reality TV host. He makes big boasts and big promises but when the facts fall short, as they often do in his claims on the coronavirus pandemic, he lies a lot more.
He takes credit for things he didn’t do, manufactures “facts” that don’t exist and lies about his critics and opponents.
