President Trump is a “pathological liar” who “lies about everything, all the time,” New York Times columnist Charles Blow writes.
Blow, a frequent Trump critic, wrote Sunday that he was unsure whom to believe in the reports from both sides of the weekend meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. In the past, Trump has said he had a positive relationship with Putin, but at other times has said that he and Putin have never met:
Clearly, Trump having a great relationship with Putin, and Trump not knowing Putin at all, cannot both be true. I say this to remind you of something that you can never allow to become normal and never allow to become acceptable: Our “president” is a pathological liar. He lies about everything, all the time. Lying is his resting condition.
Therefore, absolutely nothing he or his team says is to be believed, ever.
Did Trump really began the meeting with Putin at the G20 by asking him about allegations of Russian hacking in the 2016 election? Blow isn’t so sure:
America is under sustained, possibly even accelerated, attack by a foreign power, the same one that attacked our election, and Trump not only wavers on the source of the attack, but also refuses to condemn the culprit and in fact has a penchant for praising him.
He also slammed Trump’s statement that Russia and the US would work together on cybersecurity, calling “this whole business of setting up a cybersecurity working group with the Russians is like inviting the burglar to help you design your alarm system”:
This whole thing stinks to high heaven, and we must press on until we uncover the source of the rot. Team Trump wants us all to get over this annoying Russia thing and just move on. Sorry sir, not going to happen.
What is your reaction about this?
