Cowardly Lyin’

Cowardly Lyin

Pride of Lyin’s

The Prevaricator of the United States of America tweeted:

And then he tweeted:

Was the The Great Orange Don done? Oh no, gentle readers, he was not. In a classic cheeto move he sent Sean Spicer, the official Trump-splainer and cuddly lap-dog, to dig the hole a bit deeper:

This week, Napolitano, Fox News judicial analyst, claimed during an interview on the network that three intelligence sources confirmed to him that the Obama administration used GCHQ to spy on Trump so that there would be “no American fingerprints on this”.

Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, quoted Napolitano’s allegation in an effort to validate Trump’s unfounded claim that Obama tapped his phones last year.

Then, faced with the avalanche of evidence that none of this was true and with the denials by members of his own party, did the Fabricator in Chief back down and admit he was wrong?

Oh you silly reader, you.

You thought there might be decency and courage in our Supreme Slanderer?

No.

So when confronted by a German reporter this past week and asked if he regreted his tweets, what did he do?

Trump suggested responsibility for those comments rests with Fox News, not the White House.

In trying to justify Trump’s initial allegations from nearly two weeks ago, Spicer read press clips to reporters on Thursday, including one from Fox News that featured Judge Andrew Napolitano, a former New Jersey Superior Court judge and a regular commentator for Fox News. 

Napolitano told Fox that three intelligence sources had said that Obama “went outside the chain of command” and used Britain’s Government Communications Headquarters so “there’s no American fingerprints on this.”

“We said nothing,” Trump said during Friday’s news conference. “All we did was quote a certain very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for that on television. I didn’t make an opinion on it. That was a statement made by a very talented lawyer on Fox.”

“So you shouldn’t be talking to me, you should be talking to Fox,” the president added.

Now that is some cowardly lyin.
