Donald Trump Lies About Calling George W. Bush a Liar

During last Saturday night’s GOP debate, Donald Trump joined the likes of radical leftists Code Pink, Rosie O’Donnell, Michael Moore, Nancy Pelosi , Harry Reid and Charles Schumer in accusing Republican president George W. Bush administration of knowingly lying about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction (WMD’s), and sending America to war anyway.

“I want to tell you. They lied,” Trump said Saturday night. “They said there were weapons of mass destruction, there were none. And they knew there were none. There were no weapons of mass destruction,” he shouted.

Setting aside the inconvenient truth that there is irrefutable evidence that Saddam Hussein used WMD’s on his own people, and that WMD’s were actually found in Iraq and that even the very liberal New York Times admits it, Trump then appeared Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press with Chuck Todd, and amazingly said that he never called anyone a liar.

“I didn’t call anyone a liar,” Trump lied to Chuck Todd.

Assuming words still have meaning, and assuming that saying someone told that big of a lie means you are calling the person who told repeated lies a liar, then Trump is lying.

Moreover, Trump has repeatedly said that George W. Bush should have been impeached over his supposed “lie,” so he can’t walk it back. If it was simply a mistake by Bush, that wouldn’t be an impeachable offense. But no, Trump said Bush lied.

But Trump wasn’t done.

Having realized his gargantuan flip-flop, going from saying Bush lied to saying he didn’t call anyone a liar, Trump now says that he “doesn’t know” if George W. Bush lied.

Appearing by phone on ABC’s Good Morning America on Tuesday, Trump told George Stephanopoulos his position had changed again.

“I don’t know if he lied or not. I just know that there are no weapons of mass destruction,” Trump said.

So in less than 72 hours, Trump has gone from calling former President of the United States George W. Bush, a fellow Republican no less, a liar, to saying that he didn’t call anyone a liar, to now claiming that he doesn’t know if anyone lied.

Instead of self-funding a presidential run to fuel his oversized ego, perhaps a better investment for Trump would be to invest in a well-qualified psychiatrist.

Either there is a major personality disorder going on here or what you’re looking at is an extremely dishonest person.

It seems to me that Washington, D.C., has no shortage of narcissistic sociopaths and liars. We don’t need another one, especially one of these YUGE proportions.

Like all con men, Donald Trump comes across as authentic and a straight-talker, that he may even believe what he’s saying. But someone who can rapid-fire lies like this in such a short period of time — at the same he’s calling everyone else under the sun liars — is not only extremely disturbing, but is completely unacceptable to anyone coming anywhere near the White House.
