Here is an excellent article regarding trump and Truth, as usual from The Atlantic.

Trump's Credibility Crisis Arrives
Quote:
Itís a point countless politicians have madeófor instance, Representative Adam Schiff of California, the most effective questioner in yesterdayís testimony by James Comey of the FBI and Admiral Mike Rogers of the NSA. As Schiff put it last week:

"If six months from now the president should say that Iran is cheating on the nuclear agreement, if he's making that up, itís a real problem. If heís not making [it] up and itís true, itís an even bigger problem because the question is: Would people believe him? Would the American people believe him? Would people around the world believe him? And that has real-world consequences."

And now, the Wall Street Journal, normally supportive of Trump, weighs in on Trump's credibility crisis.

For many Trump has never been credible. Proliferate liars lack credibility.

So you donít feel like Comeyís testimony in any way takes away from the credibility of the tweets you put out, even with the quotes?

No, I have, look. I have articles saying it happened. But you have to take a look at what they, they just went out at a news conference. Devin Nunes had a news conference. I mean I donít know, I was unable to see it, because I am at meetings, but they just had a news conference talking about surveillance. Now again, it is in quotes. That means surveillance and various other things. And the New York Times had a front-page story, which they actually reduced, they took it, they took it the word wiretapping out of the title, but its first story in the front page of the paper was wiretapping. And a lot of information has just been learned, and a lot of information may be learned over the next coming period of time. We will see what happens. Look. I predicted a lot of things that took a little of bit of time. Here, headline, for the front page of the New York Times, "Wiretapped data used in inquiry of Trump aides." Thatís a headline. Now they then dropped that headline, I never saw this until this morning. They then dropped that headline, and they used another headline without the word wiretap, but they did mean wiretap. Wiretapped data used in inquiry. Then changed after that, they probably didnít like it. And they changed the title. They took the wiretap word out.

He really is a bullshit artist, not a good one, but good enuff to suck in the gullible fools that voted for him.
Now, they can bask in his betrayal of their interests.
