“A Republic, if you can keep it.”
* Donald Trump knows he can’t count on re-election without the mega swing state of Florida. Although most polls have him slightly behind in the Sunshine State, he knows there’s an ACOLYTE at the end of the tunnel: Ron DeSantis.
* “I think we can actually surpass (economically) where we were. I feel it. I think sometimes what I feel is better than what I think, unfortunately or fortunately.” That was President Donald Trump, unfortunately.
* It had been a while–more than a year–since a White House spokesperson actually held a news conference. That’s what the latest (fourth for those still counting) WH spokesperson, Kayleigh McEnany, did last Friday. The Tampa native (alas) began problematically with a promise: “I will never lie to you, she underscored. “You have my word on that.”
She then undermined those words by noting that when it came to multiple charges of sexual harassment, assault and rape, her boss “always told the truth on these issues.” She also claimed that the upshot of the Mueller Report was “the complete and total exoneration of President Trump.”
Maybe self-serving revisionism isn’t a lie?
After that dubious debut–and given her de facto charge to misrepresent the prevaricator-in-chief–spokesperson credibility will continue to be a contradiction in terms. McEnany is simply next up as the official mouthpiece for a proven pathological liar who wants his brand defended at all costs, including, of course, veracity.
