Donald Trump, on the other hand, lies about everything to everyone. Yesterday, Monday October 16, 2017, during a news conference, in response to a question about the four Green Berets killed in an ambush in Niger two weeks ago, Mr. Trump declared that past presidents did not always contact families of fallen troops; he stated “If you look at President Obama and other presidents, most of them didn’t make calls… A lot of them didn’t make calls. I like to call when it’s appropriate.” Needless to say his statements were blatantly false but what was even more disturbing than the lies is the fact that he tried to justify them by lying some more; “that’s what I heard, that’s what I’ve been told” he said.
Can you imagine anyone would tell the president of the United States something so blatantly false? Of course not! He made it up. So, why did he say it?
