At his first press conference, held in front of the stars of the fallen at the Central Intelligence Agency, Comrade Drumpf lied like a rug.
And for no good reason – which makes his lies all the more intriguing.
I had an earlier post that talked about his lie when he broke out his “alternative fact” that the media “…sort of made it sound like I had a feud with the intelligence community” when in fact Drumpf had tweeted on more than one occasion blistering attacks on the intelligence community.
However, there were other fibs in that speech.
Prior to the lie about the media starting his feud, Drumpf again asserted – falsely – that he was against the war in Iraq. In his remarks at the CIA, Drumpf said, “I wasn’t a fan of Iraq. I didn’t want to go into Iraq.”
The website snopes.com has rated this statement “false”.
Then Drumpf went back to his falsehoods about the crowd for his Inauguration. He said that “The rest of the 20-block area, all the way back to the Washington Monument, was packed.”
No, Mr. Drumpf, it was not packed. Here’s the picture that shows your “packed” Mall.
However, in a truly bizarre twist (and considering all that has happened so far, it takes quite a bit now to call something Drumpf does as “bizarre”), Drumpf started to lie about the weather at his Inauguration. While supposedly trying to mend fences with the workers at the CIA, Drumpf rambles on about the precipitation at his speech when he says this:
God looked down and he said, we’re not going to let it rain on your speech.
In fact, when I first started, I said, oh, no. The first line, I got hit by a couple of drops. And I said, oh, this is too bad, but we’ll go right through it. But the truth is that it stopped immediately. It was amazing. And then it became really sunny.
No, Mr. Drumpf, it did not stop raining. It did not become “really sunny.” Here’s the video that proves it.
Just wrap your mind around this for an instant. If Comrade Drumpf is so easily willing to lie about things that are demonstrably provable (the location of a crowd in relation to the Washington Monument, the start of rain), then the possibility is near 100% that he will lie about things and events that cannot be easily proved.
Such as whether he groped women without their consent.
Such as whether he owes money to Russian business and/or government interests.
Such as whether he really did discriminate against blacks.
Such as whether he really did pay prostitutes to pee on a bed in Moscow that President Obama once slept in.
