Will You Believe Trump or Your Lying Ears?

During an interview on ABC’s Good Morning America,Trump was asked
if he was “prepared to make a clear and unequivocal statement renouncing the support of all white supremacists.”

Of course I am, of course I am,” Trump said. “I disavowed him on Friday,” Trump added. “I disavowed right after that because I thought if there was any question and you take a look at Twitter, almost immediately after on Twitter and Facebook, they were disavowed again. I disavowed him every time I speak to somebody, virtually, and they just keep it going. They keep it going and they said, ‘Oh, we never looked at your Twitter account. We never looked at Facebook.’ I said ‘Take a look at Facebook. It was totally disavowed.  How many times do I need to disavow?"

For those of us who don't have hearing problems, we also heard him when first asked  if he disavowed "all the groups", and he responded that he did not know what groups the interviewer was referring to  at that time.

But for the pathological perseverating Trumpaphobic liers.  I  paraphrase Joseph Goebbels:

 If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the Establishment can shield the people from the  lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the Establishment to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the Establishment.
