OMG! Is there Anything President Trump Won’t Lie About?
He is the President of United States but Donald Trump just keeps lying. He lies about everything and everyone – Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, his tax plan, his business dealings, 2016 presidential elections, sexual harassment, his relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, his wealth, and a thousand other things.
And now he is lying about his telephone call with a military widow.
Earlier this week, Trump said former President Barack Obama did not call families of fallen heroes while president, an assertion that has been roundly condemned by Democrats and Republicans as patently false.
Trump engages in unnecessary fights with anyone and Wednesday morning he got into one with Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) whom the president accused of lying about his telephone call with the widow of a soldier killed this month in Niger Republic, West Africa.
“Trump is a sick man. He’s cold-hearted and he feels no pity or sympathy for anyone.”
The president told Myeshia Johnson, the pregnant widow of Army Sgt. La David Johnson, when Trump called her Tuesday and spoke for about five minutes, that her husband “must’ve known what he signed up for.”
Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) told a South Florida NBC affiliate TV station that she overheard the conversation on the speakerphone and said Trump was quite “insensitive” during the conversation.
“Sarcastically he said: ‘But you know he must have known what he signed up for,’” Wilson recounted to NBC6, a South Florida TV station. “How could you say that to a grieving widow? I couldn’t believe… and he said it more than once. I said this man has no feelings for anyone. This is a young woman with child who is grieved to her soul.”
Speaking on CNN later, Congresswoman Wilson, still unhappy with the president, said the Florida community was angry with the president’s comments.
“We don’t have many heroes in our young men in Miami-Dade County, but he was a hero for us,” the congresswoman told CNN. “I asked them to give me the phone, because I wanted to speak with him. And I was going to curse him out. That was my reaction… I was livid.”
Trump responded late Wednesday morning and accused Rep. Wilson of fabricating the claim. “I have proof,” Trump tweeted but offered no evidence to support his claim. Wilson later said she stood by her account adding that “Trump is a sick man. He’s cold-hearted and he feels no pity or sympathy for anyone.”
“I didn’t say what that congresswoman said. Didn’t say it at all. She knows it,” Trump said. “I had a very nice conversation with the woman, with the wife, who sounded like a lovely woman.”
“Let her make her statement again, and you’ll find out,” Trump added.
Army Sgt. La David Johnson’s mother who also overheard the telephone call from the president later confirmed Rep. Wilson’s account as accurate. “President Trump did disrespect my son and my daughter and also me and my husband,” Cowanda Jones-Johnson told The Washington Post.
Lying is second nature with this president. Earlier this year, Trump lied about his White House meeting with then FBI director James Comey who he later fired.
Three days after firing Comey, Trump tweeted that he had recordings of the meeting with Comey. He said Comey “better hope there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!” Comey responded during a congressional testimony: “I’ve seen the tweet about tapes. Lordy, I hope there are tapes.”
“I hope there are, and I’ll consent to the release of them,” Comey added. Trump has yet to produce proof of the recorded conversation.
U.S congressional investigators later gave the president till June 23 to produce the tape. In a press conference a short while later, Trump told reporters he would tell them about the existence of tapes “over a very short period of time. You are going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer.”
On June 22, a day before the congressional deadline, the president confessed that he had lied about the existence of the tape – he has no tape and did not record the conversation with Comey.
“With all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking and illegal leaking of information, I have no idea whether there are “tapes” or recordings of my conversations with James Comey, but I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings,” he tweeted.
And that wasn’t the first major lie the president has told in public to cover his misbehavior. He once accused Obama of wiretapping his Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential campaign.
“Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” Trump tweeted. “How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!”
Then White House press secretary Sean Spicer walked back the claim days later. “If you look at the president’s tweet, he said very clearly quote — ‘wiretapping’ — end quote,” Spicer said in a press conference on March 13. “The president used the word wiretap in quotes to mean broadly surveillance and other activities during that.”
The FBI and NSA later confirmed there was no evidence of Obama administration wiretapping Trump Tower during the campaign.
When does this stop? Will Trump ever realize that as the U.S. President, it is unacceptable to lie? Tell us what you think in the comment session below.
