Lies, Dam Lies, and Trump Lies

21 Sep
Lies, Dam Lies, and Trump Lies

Although the U.S. News and World Report describes Trump’s disingenuous statements as “casual elasticity with the truth,” such lighthearted and polished explanations should only be reserved for youngsters who tell “stories, fibs, untruths.” Or, as the British call fabrications of the truth: “Porkies.”   In Trump’s case, lets call it like it is — Outright dam lies!  Lies flows smoothly from Trumps lips so often and so fast that the star-crossed news media can’t keep up with them.   Voters and citizens throughout the world continue to watch speechless, jaw-dropped newscasters gasping with “deer in the headlight stares,” not knowing how to keep up with the Donald’s fleet-of-tongue lies. Truth be told, Trump has mastered his own style of lying by crafting the infamous Bernie Madoff’s pyramid scheme with an enhanced style of Reality show splendor.

 Allow me to explain. New York Times writer Nicholas Kristof wrote that “We should be guard dogs, not lap dogs, and when the public sees Trump as more honest than Clinton, something has gone wrong.[1]” A classic example of Trump’s recent showmanship, and his ability to control others occurred when he met with Dr. Oz to review his health and exercise habits. The deluded Dr. Oz asked him: How do you stay healthy on the campaign trail? Trump’s replied “When I’m speaking in front of 15 and 20,000 people and I’m up there using a lot of motion, I guess in it’s own way, it’s a pretty healthy act. I really enjoy doing it. A lot of times these rooms are very hot, like saunas, and I guess that is a form of exercise and, you know?” Did Doctor Oz challenge Trump’s statement that using a lot of [hand and arm] motions was not exercise? No, of course not. The good doctor humbly nodded his approval and meekly changed the subject.

Unlike the loyal followers of his ‘dog Whistle’ who drools when fed scraps of red meat rhetoric, Devious Donald leads the news medial around on his ‘Tweet Leash’. On September 16th, at 9:32 AM he pulled off one of the most impressive political hustles in American history by tweeting “I am now going to the brand new Trump International, Hotel D.C. for a major statement.”   His mark was directed to the ever-gullible news media. In hindsight, it’s remarkable how duping the highly educated and susceptible reporters required no other shills (accomplices in scams), except the unsuspecting news reporters. Any self-respecting flimflam scoundrel will verify that the best con game is when the unknowing accomplices are also the marks.

Upon receiving Dapper Donald’s tweet to assemble for a command performance, naive news reporters soared from far-flung distances to their Donald’s beckoning. It didn’t take long for Trump Tower to be surrounded with massive semi-tractor trailers, and vans with satellite dish reaching two stories blocking out the sun around Trump’s new tower. With cameramen in tow, they obediently filed into their assigned area and waited impatiently for the sizzling news to be articulated by their handler: The Donald. Knowing Trump, it would be unthinkable if he did not take advantage of his marks by using them for free live coverage to promote his new hotel. Why shouldn’t he enrich himself? After all, he was the Donald. Keeping the suspense elevated, in a soft voice he pitched the hotel eloquently, pointing out the beauty and the many amenities. After using free media to pitch his hotel, he wasn’t finished toying with their eagerness. As a prelude, to his “major statement,” Trump fed them generously with Patriotism by marching out a cadre of decorated generals and Medal of Honor recipients. When the climatic moment did finally arrive, Trump stated:

“Hillary Clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy[2]. I finished it.  President Barack Obama was born in the United States.  Period. Now we all want to get back to making America strong again.”

Immediately after his brief proclamation, Dapper Donald exited the stage faster than a Pop Tart® springing out of a toaster; leaving the news media still salivating over their mikes in anticipation of a “major statement.” First to come out of shock was Jake Tapper from CNN. He said it best by announcing that Trump had pulled a “political Rick roll.[3]” Do you think that the Donald would slip away quietly, leaving his marks confused and dumfounded? If so, then you don’t know Con artist Donald.   Employing his favorite tool, the “tweet leash,” Trump gloated mockingly about his marks saying that “Donald Trumps Birther event is the greatest trick he ever pulled.”  Upon reading the tweet, a sensible person would think that the bamboozled news media would cowboy/cowgirl-up and dump their teaser. Not so. They whined, griped, and protested their outrage of being deceived on twitter and their media outlets. Later on, still whimpering and venting their frustration, they dried their tears and meekly trotted after their oppressor.

“Donald Trump’s birther event is the greatest trick he’s ever pulled”

wapo.st/2cQoAQC

Despite what one feels about him, Donald Trump built an epic political pyramid scheme with the same appeal and pretentiousness of his reality show.   All the while beating out sixteen Republican presidential contenders; most being seasoned politicians. One must remember that the Donald is a master of ad hominem; articulating veiled threats; lying; manipulating his “tweet leashed” news media; and feeding red meat rhetoric to his loyal disciples. How does he do it?

First, know that Trump has no reservations about telling a pack of lies and calling his opponents “Lyin’ Ted,” “Little Marco”, “Low Energy” Bush, “low life,” and a host of other names. He avoids honest questioners and those that displease him.   For example, when Mika Brzezinski, Co-host of Morning Joe called him on his statements; he releases a tirade of remarks. Stating that she “has gone wild with hate,” “very insecure,” “clown,” “off the wall,” “neurotic,” “not very bright,” and a “mess!“ When caught in a lie, the crafty Donald either double down, tell another lie, or he makes outrageous and insulting statements. Whereby, the hapless news medial drops challenging his previous lies and shocking statements, and pick up Trump’s new disingenuous assertion.  Again, before they can fact check and call him on it, the wily Donald is two steps ahead of them with a whole new parcel of new juicy lies and outrageous statements — leaving the news media again speechless in a mired of lies.

I’ve been told that Politifacts has hired extra staff to keep up with Trump’s perpetual contemptible statements and lies.  As, he has so many “Paints on Fire” lies most cognitive readers would think that the Donald’s pants should have burst in flames a long time ago.   As noted on the link below, Trump has broken the Lie Bank.  As, 54% of his statements are false or paints on fire.   And only a paltry 15% have been rated “True” or “Mostly True.”

                     Donald Trump    Hillary Clinton *

True                      4                             16

Mostly True              10                                48


Total                        35                                88

 

Mostly False            28                               16

False                        65                               15


Pants on Fire          30                               1


Total                        158                           120

Remember, these rankings only include the statements we’ve fact-checked after Clinton and Trump formally entered the race for president. — Politifacts

According to Politifacts[4] at the web sites below, Donald Trump has generated a new level of lying. When it comes to Trump, the word ‘lie’ does not suffice, nor is ‘dam lie’ adequate. I propose that we call such lying utterances as “Trump Lies.” The purpose of these lies, like all long con schemes, he has been calculating this con game with the ultimate goal of swindling the presidency of United from the American people.
