When Comey testifies to the Senate, he'll be asked about this dinner.... and the responses will once again display Trump as a compulsive liar. Why doesn't that matter to you Dag?
I think you and I have been over this before Rickyp. All politicians lie. All of them. That's just what they do. They lie Rickyp. Politicians lie.
I completely agree with your assessment of Trump as a liar. Yes he is. Lying is simply one tool amongst many others that he has consistently used over the course of his business and now political life.
Some politicians are much more skilled at HOW they lie. Some are very convincing. Some are skilled actors in fact.
To say Trump is bad at lying really misses the greater point, that he doesn't even try to keep track of his lies. It just doesn't matter to him. Like I've mentioned, lying is a tool, a means to an end.
So, believing my assessment of this aspect of the man to be true, and given his perspective on the lying, manipulative, deceitful, cheating liberal press, I think that he purposefully winds them up, almost out of sheer boredom and certainly distain.
This latter point about boredom I've attempted to expound on here elsewhere. It's why I believe he bothered to even run for political office in the first place. He is bored, perceives himself as having conquered all....except, the most powerful position in the world.
So what do you want out of me Rickp? To be upset that Trump is a liar? Or a poor one?
