He Can’t Stop Lying, He Won’t Stop Lying, Does He Even Know He’s Lying?

October 19th, 2017

Donald Trump lies so frequently, so clumsily, so profoundly that keeping track of them is like trading penny stocks. He lied in 1987 when he said he saw the market crash coming and shorted it. But unlike the Trump pump and dump world of finance, he is now the President of the United States, and his sociopathy is on a world stage. His lies are legendary; from wiretaps to Wikileaks, from the FBI to a Gold-Star mother, and everyone can see his weaknesses, and apparently, no one can control him. With the possible exception of Putin, whose one real strength is intimidation and manipulation of the weak.
