President Trump's propensity for lying has reached such heights that the mainstream media is no longer concerned about calling him out with terms not used before. CBS News Scott Pelley did not disappoint.
CBS News calls out Trump's lies
CBS News is no longer pulling punches when describing the multitude of lies that emanate from Trump. In one speech to our military, he just strung them along.
"Today President Trump told a U.S. military audience there have been terrorist attacks that no one knows about because the media choose not to report them," CBS News anchor Scott Pelley said. "It has been a busy day for presidential statements divorced from reality. Mr. Trump said this morning that any polls, that show disapproval of his immigration ban are fake. He singled out a federal judge for ridicule after the judge suspended his ban and Mr. Trump said that the ruling now means that anyone can enter the country. The President's fictitious claims whether imaginary or fabricated are now worrying even his backers, particularly after he insisted that millions of people voted illegally giving Hillary Clinton her popular vote victory. There is not one state election official, Democrat or Republican, who supports that claim."
Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner, is at the bottom of the Politifact list with a sad 9% of true or mostly true statements. Just 9% of the things Donald Trump says are mostly related to the truth.
Some activists believe that Trump-lie-fatigue will set in and make his lying par for the course As such, always calling out his lies are ineffective they say. The fatigue will set in. However, the reality of a lying President will metastasize in the American psyche which will be an implicit invalidation of all that he says about his policies going forward.
