Of all the problems with the new administration, perhaps the worst is that Trump et al cannot be relied upon to tell the truth.
The latest whopper is that former president Obama “wiretapped” Trump’s campaign headquarters. Well, now they say that when Trump tweeted that he was wiretapped didn’t mean “wiretap”.
“Chris, I’m not Inspector Gadget. I don’t believe people are using the microwave to spy on the Trump campaign. However, I’m not in the job of having evidence. That’s what investigations are for.”
Why not just say — Chris, it is my job to say things that have no basis in reality.! Indeed, that seems to be a shared task in this White House.
