Who Ya Gonna Believe? Me or Documented Reality?

mad-trumpWe are about to launch into a new episode of “He Said, He Said,” as deep thinking pundits and talking heads attempt to decide whether to believe the word of President of the United States Donald Trump or that of former Director of the FBI James Comey.

The latter is a distinguished law enforcement professional who apparently takes extensive notes to make sure he remembers the facts of every encounter correctly. The former changes his stories faster than mothers change their babies’ diapers.

As a public service to those who might be weighing the question of which of these men to believe, I herewith provide a short list of recent press articles that discuss the truthfulness propensities of each.

Summary: What we have here is a case of “crazy … nut job” vs. … James Comey. It will be interesting to watch Trump supporters and White House spokespersons try to convince us that we should always give the President of the United States the benefit of the doubt, because he’s, you know, the President.

And just ignore the fact that he is a well-practiced, unrepentant, pathological, serial liar who just happens to be President of the United States …. at least for now.
