Donald Trump’s choice to lie about being his own fake PR guy 25 years ago revealed that he is a pathological liar who is unable to stop himself from saying that things that are not true.
Video via NBC’s Today:
Trump’s response to being outed as “John Miller” the fake PR guy was, “No, I don’t know anything about it. You’re telling me about it for the first time, and it doesn’t sound like my voice at all. I have many, many people that are trying to imitate my voice, and you can imagine that. This sounds like one of the scams, one of the many scams. I don’t think it was me, it doesn’t sound like me. I don’t know even what they’re talking about.”
The problem is that Trump has already admitted in court that he served as his own fake PR person to plant stories in the media.
The audio of the phone clearly reveals that “John Miller” is Donald Trump:
The problem isn’t that Trump tried to pull a hustler’s con of being his own PR person. The problem is that Trump continues to lie about what he did. It would have been easy for Trump to laugh, and admit that he was goofing around 25 years ago, and own up to it.
The fact that Trump continues to lie even when confronted with overwhelming evidence is the reason why he is fatally flawed. Donald Trump can’t stop lying. Even when the lie is completely absurd, Trump can’t tell the truth. Trump will tell lies about big things, and little things. No detail is too small to be lied about.
Donald Trump doesn’t change positions on the issues. He makes up new lies that contradict his old lies. An already directionless Republican Party has turned itself over to the whims of a pathological liar.
The media bloodhounds have caught his scent, and Trump’s inability to stop lying is going to lead to the defeat of the Republican Party.
