Trump warned us he was a liar

March 9, 2017

As E J Dionne reminds us in the Washington Post:-

No one should act as if Trump didn’t warn us about his negotiable relationship with the truth. He laid it out in his 1987 bestseller, “The Art of the Deal.” Trump wrote: “I play to people’s fantasies. . . . People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular.” He spoke of “truthful hyperbole” — an oxymoron for the ages — which he defined as “an innocent form of exaggeration.”
