    Sorry, but claiming the Washington Compost is a conservative rag is like calling CNN and MSNBC rightwing hacks, and completely undermines this thread.

    Here is another example of how he is a liar

    A top Republican lawmaker undercut President Donald Trump’s attacks against Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) over the bungled nomination of Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson to head the Veterans Affairs Department, saying some of the allegations targeting the White House physician appeared credible.

    Jackson was forced to withdraw from consideration for the post last week after Tester, the senior Democrat on the Veterans’ Affairs Committee, raised concerns about several allegations ― including that the doctor oversaw a “toxic” work environment, overprescribed medication, and drank while on the job. Trump stoutly defended Jackson over the weekend, dismissing the allegations as baseless and calling for Tester’s resignation.

    But Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.), the Veterans’ Affairs Committee chairman, contradicted Trump and his top aides by saying a CNN story published earlier this week substantiated some of the misconduct accusations.

    According to the story, Vice President Mike Pence’s physician raised alarms in the White House earlier this year that Jackson may have violated federal privacy protections for Pence’s wife, Karen, by discussing her medical condition with others. CNN also reported that the Pence physician said in a memo he felt intimidated when an angry Jackson confronted him about the concerns he had aired. Jackson acted unprofessionally, the doctor said.

    You liberals will continue to lose because you don't understand the obvious.

    Trump never lies.
    ... never lied in the past
    ... never cheated on his wife.
    ... never laundry money.
    ... never lost a fight.
    ... will always win future fights
    ... has never been wrong about anything

    I could go on for pages about how perfect trump is. Liberals will never understand Trump because they don't understand that trump is perfect, and always will be.

    How can someone be perfect? Its easy, you create a persona called "Donald Trump".

    "President Trump and his associates misled, obfuscated and ultimately lied to the American people about hush-money payments," Kessler writes in a column titled "Not just misleading. Not merely false. A lie."

    Kessler has always applied Pinocchios in rating public statements, ranging from one to four Pinocchios depending on the degree of the lie, with four being the most egregious.

    Trump’s claims that he knew nothing about the payments at the time was given four Pinocchios.

    In the case of fact-checking the president, Kessler has documented 4,229 false or misleading claims, or an average of 7.6 per day, since Trump's inauguration on Jan. 20, 2017.

    "How to characterize Trump’s statements has become its own pitched political battle, with many of the president’s critics demanding that they be called ‘lies,’” wrote Kessler. "The Fact Checker has been hesitant to go that far, as it is difficult to document whether the president knows he is not telling the truth."

    After breaking down various statement from Trump and his spokespeople that appear to contradict themselves regarding the payments, Kessler concluded, "After months of denial and deception, Trump was still not telling the truth. "

    Cohen, Trump’s former personal attorney, pleaded guilty to charges of bank fraud, tax fraud and campaign finance violations on Tuesday in New York.

    The next day, Trump said he had no knowledge at the time of Cohen’s payments to adult-film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal, despite Cohen releasing an audio recording of Trump discussing whether the McDougal payment should be made.

    “I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down. And I watched in Jersey City, New Jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down,” Trump said at a campaign rally. “Thousands of people were cheering.”

    The following day, Trump reiterated his lie, claiming that the supposed celebration “was well covered at the time.”

    “There were people that were cheering on the other side of New Jersey, where you have large Arab populations. They were cheering as the World Trade Center came down,” Trump said on ABC’s “This Week.”

    The lie, which has been roundly debunked, appeared to originate from an article published a few days after the attacks, reporting that law enforcement officials had investigated “a number of people who were allegedly seen celebrating the attacks and holding tailgate-style parties on rooftops while they watched the devastation on the other side of the river.”

    But Trump, as he frequently does, exaggerated the allegation in the story ― an allegation that was never substantiated.

    Following the rally in which he first peddled the lie, Trump mocked one of the journalists who wrote the original story, veteran New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski, after Kovaleski himself affirmed that the story did not back up Trump’s lie.

    “I certainly do not remember anyone saying that thousands or even hundreds of people were celebrating,” Kovaleski said.


    Trump lied his way to the White House. People who voted for him should be ashamed.
