Normally I would ignore the latest lie / tantrum / tweet-torm / insanity as just more of the same from this administration and the infantile orange tinged sociopath who occupies the White House. Yet this time it is worth commenting on for a couple of reasons.
Then when it becomes clear that isn't working, the child segues to a big fib, to redirect blame and attention. In this case how all the other kids made far worse messes than him, in fact he is the cleanest, neatest kid EVER.
If Donald Trump were in fact, a small child trying to get out of cleaning his room, this might be endearingly funny. But instead we saw a 70 year old man, the President of United States do this in a desperate attempt to distract attention from the fact that he has not paid any attention whatsoever to the deaths of four American Green Berets, in a terrorist attack.
Like a Toddler caught in fib, When Trump gets caught in a lie his goto follow up is .... to tell another lie to justify it . His usual follow up fib has been, and was in this case as well; "I don’t know, that’s what I’m told.”
Just like he "was told" his inauguration had the biggest crowd ever?
Just like he "was told" that President Obama had wiretapped him during the campaign?
And who can forget all the times Trump "was told" about President Obama's Birth Certificate?
So who was it who "told" Trump this time? Which Generals? When? Asking all of these questions is pointless because Donald Trump is lying. And like toddler with no concept of honesty, when when he gets caught in the lie, he just tells a bigger lie to try to shift the focus or blame.
But don't dwell on this too long. After all, tomorrow's lie will be even bigger and crazier, and in no time at all you'll have forgotten all about today's lie.
