Most people would hesitate before telling easily disprovable lies like these, much as shoplifters would hesitate if the store owner is looking at them. Most people are fazed if caught in an outright lie. But in these cases and others, Trump never blinked. As part of his indispensable campaign coverage this summer, David Fahrenthold (and Robert Oâ€™Harrow) of The Washington Post offered astonishing documentation of Trump being caught in a long string of business-related lies and simply not caring.
The news media are not built for someone like this.
The only slightly amusing thing about Trump supporters’ calls for everyone to “give him a chance” is that we already did. He’s a racist, misogynist, narcissist who lies so often that it’s head spinning.
