Donald Trump is a skilled liar. I don’t really mean that he is good at it. But he does it lots. He does it a tremendous amount. He does it more than any other Presidential candidate. Believe me!
So during the Commander In Chief Forum on Wednesday night, when he claimed that he had always been against the Iraq war, I immediately smelled a rat. Matt Lauer even seemed to kind of call him out on it. But Trump went on to insist that he was in fact always against the invasion of Iraq and that there are all kinds of things that prove it. Like his interview with Esquire.
The big news for Trump is that he really should stop mentioning specific things that “prove” he is telling the truth when they actually prove the opposite.
You see, the story Trump referred to in Esquire magazine was in August 2004. But the Iraq war started in March 2003. So kudos to Trump for recognizing a year plus into the war, when things were going badly, and it appeared to be a no-win situation, and no weapons of mass destruction were found.
To make matters worse, in an interview with Howard Stern in 2002, Trump was specifically asked if he was for the invasion of Iraq and he said, “Yeah, I guess so. I wish the first time it were done correctly.”
There can be no confusion in that statement. He was in fact for the invasion of Iraq. And he even went so far as to imply we should have invaded in the first Gulf War.
Lyin’ Donald Trump is unqualified to be President of the United States of America.
