    WTF is wrong with Trump? He just cannot stop lying. He lies about everything and has to know he's going to get caught out. He just doesn't care. He's pathological about it. Recently, he's lied about the Boy Scouts calling him, he's lied about consulting "his generals" on the trans issue, and now he's lied about the president of Mexico calling him to compliment him on his dumbass immigration policy. Will the lies ever stop?

    I've said this before. He's pathological. But I honestly think he just creates his own reality and expects everyone to just believe whatever he says. Meaning - I don't think he lies (all the time) because he's trying to deceive. I think he has no filter and no control over what he says and throughout his career in business, being wealthy, few to no one questioned the emperor with no clothes.

    Made him millions over the years, won him the white house, his colleagues in Washington are too timid to call him out, his supporters won't abandon him. Until one of his lies has an actual adverse reaction to him directly, I don't see him changing.

    Ummm..This part caught my eye :

    “Even the president of Mexico called me," Trump said at a Cabinet meeting. "They said their southern border, very few people are coming because they know they’re not going to get through our border, which is the ultimate compliment.”

    If thats true why would the US government waste billions on a wall ?

    False equivalences. The only real lie there was Clinton's. The other two were promises those presides intended on keeping. Trump on the other hand lies and knows he's lying. He's intentionally deceiving. Yes all politicians are liars but trump is even worse.

    The boys scouts are also denying that Trump called their leader.

    The Boy Scouts are denying a claim by President Donald Trump that the head of the youth organization called the president to praise his politically aggressive speech to the Scouts' national jamboree.

    Trump told The Wall Street Journal, "I got a call from the head of the Boy Scouts saying it was the greatest speech that was ever made to them, and they were very thankful." Politico published the transcript of the interview.

    So ya, they are denying their leader called Trump.

    Sure, everyone tells the occasional lie here and there, but some lie compulsively or pathologically (like Trump.)

    Are you saying Trump is too stupid to hide his lies effectively?

    I could not agree more!

    The man lies about such idiotic things, and so blatantly...and he just can't stop himself. They are stupid, easily disproven lies told in the service of feeding his fragile ego. That is just tragically, pathetically sad.

    Still, to paraphrase Dr. Sidney Freedman from M*A*S*H, he's a victim too, but he's such an incredible example of walking fertilizer that it's hard for me to care.

    You hear him tell these childish lies, and you want once, just once, to hear a member of the White House press corps say to his face:

    Excuse me, sir. You do realize that we're standing right here, right? And that we're reporters? And that we have eyes and ears and can see and find out things for ourselves? And that neither we nor the American people are total imbeciles. You do know that, right??​

    Your deflection and whataboutism false equivalency is noted. But it doesn't change the fact that we have likely the biggest liar ever to sit in the White House for president. As one TV show said today, we've come along way from Washington and the cherry tree story. And that is truly sad.

    Whether you think Hillary was horrible, or think trump has great ideas..or whatever, he and his personality is something that never ever should have been in the White House. He has cheapened the position and the dignity of the country frankly.

    Gee I had put this tweet up someplace else, should have saved it for this thread. The only way for Trump to get his Donalds' Truths out is shout them out or tweet them. Whatever is in some report about a Mexican president denying the truth of a Donald's Truth,,,, that must just be fake news media at it again.

    I laughed so much when I read the part I bolded. I figure the cannon on the village green will fire when Trump tells the truth by mistake sometimes, and that thing hasn't been fired too many times since the Revolution.
