Yesterday trump was claiming to have seen a video of cash being unloaded from a plane. It was, he said, the cash the US was “giving” (actually it was Iranian money being paid back) to Iran. And it was a very clear, professionally done video.
Since he alone on all the planet had seen such a video, there was just a little bit of cause to question his veracity.
Today he tweeted, “The plane I saw on television was the hostage plane in Geneva, Switzerland, not the plane carrying $440 million in cash going to Iran!”
That’s the first time I’ve heard him admit an error. Sounds like progress for a man who has never valued integrity. But he made no apology and did not explain how the fuzzy image of people getting off a plane could have been described as a professional, very clear video of stacks of money.
He had lied — perhaps to himself, since his mental instability is becoming increasingly evident — and then embellished his own lie with details about the quality of the video.
The man who would be President is an outright fraud at the deepest level.
