Trump asked about his lies.
Watch the full episode here.
The question is why did it take so long before a reporter got the courage to ask the president the most obvious question. Mr. President, why are you such a compulsive liar. Is it that you are unable to distinguish fact from fiction? Is it a self-defense mechanism to mask your ineptitude and lack of intellect? What is it?
HuffPost reported it as follows.
Donald Trump, a president whose persistent untruths and obfuscation led to a disastrous pandemic response that has left more than 165,000 people dead in the U.S., was asked if he regrets all the lies he’s told to the American people. He skipped the question.HuffPost senior White House correspondent S.V. Dáte asked the president during Thursday’s coronavirus task force briefing if, after 3½ years, “do you regret at all all the lying you’ve done to the American people? All the dishonesties?”“That who has done?” Trump replied.“You have done,” said Dáte, who wrote at length about Trump’s “Ministry of Untruth” earlier this year.Trump paused and then moved on to the next question.
One hopes that between now and the election that Trump gets the scrutiny he deserves. He has killed enough Americans with his ineptitude and promotion of hate.
