Anyone with a functioning brain could see these types of words and actions coming from a mile away. All one needed to do was pay attention to Trump’s 30+ years in the public spotlight and especially the man’s words and actions during the Republican Primaries and the actual campaign. The man’s ability when campaigning to to call actual facts a lie and to call others a liar for speaking the truth even as he spouted off a string of lie after lie was unparalleled even in the world of politics. Donald Trump is a man who does not have the ability to distinguish an actual fact from something he simply likes and wants to be a fact, and his habit of lying almost every single time he speaks or tweets about a topic reaches pathological levels.
He built a campaign in his own image that treated facts and truth with the same level of disregard and outright disdain that he himself did. Then he won the election and began to create an administration in that image. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer officially gathered the press for the first time to deliver a five-minute statement Saturday in which he made several statements filled with multiple falsehoods. The media noticed this and said something about it. Then Trump sent his official spokesperson for his Ministry of Truth out to talk on the Sunday chat shows. What she did and said- combined with what Trump has said in the last year -made Baghdad Bob look honest in comparison.
