    Trumps lies...from the my times

    Trump used to boast that he and Vladimir Putin were buddies — “I spoke directly and indirectly with President Putin” — only to acknowledge later that they had never met or spoken. He retweeted an incendiary graphic indicating that 81 percent of murdered whites are killed by blacks (the actual figure is 15 percent). He denied telling The New York Times’s editorial board that he would impose a 45 percent tariff on China; The Times then released the audio of him saying just that.
    Then there was Trump’s claim that he had seen thousands of Muslims celebrating in New Jersey after 9/11. That was preposterous, but he then claimed that an article from the time backed him up (it didn’t), mocked the disabled reporter who wrote it, and denied he had done so. Lately he stitched yet another quilt of lies about all this.
    Equally brazen were Trump’s claims about his fund-raiser for veterans in Iowa: He said on video that he had raised $6 million for them, then when the money didn’t show up he denied ever saying that. He claims to have been “among the earliest” to oppose the Iraq war, even though interviews from 2002 and 2003 show he then supported the war.

    None of which will make the remotest bit of difference to Trump supporters, however true.

    This is easily explained. As Paul Manafort has noted, Donald Trump "has two completely different personalities".

    One of those Donald Trump personalities has frequently met with and spoken to Vladimir Putin.

    The other Donald Trump personality doesn't know Vladimir from Adam.

    Nothing nefarious here, and not a lie.

    Only two?

    Hillary has that many in an average day.

    Then the next day...well it depends on who she is speaking to, and what the polls say...

    I am being serious: We USED to regard having multiple personalities as a sign of mental illness. We still should.

    I dispute that Hillary has multiple personalities. She may very well two different crowds different things. I don't think that's the same. Almost ALL politicians do that sort of thing.

    Saying things to different crowds is fine. We don't talk about coal mines to teachers etc.she knows her audiences. Not to see the Trump has a very serious personality disorder called narcissism speaks volumes about your judging character
