Donald John “Liar in Chief” Trump’s disdain for the truth has taken an amazing new turn — if that is possible.
He came out of his summit with North Korean dictator/despot Kim Jong Un and declared how “thousands” of parents of missing Korean War veterans begged him to get their remains returned to the United States for proper burial.
The president then said it again today in an extraordinary — and bizarre — media “availability” at the White House.
Let’s back it up a bit, shall we?
The Korean War ceasefire took effect in 1953. That was 65 years ago. A warrior who was lost at the very end of the Korean War might be, oh, 83 to 85 years of age today, if not older. His parents? Let’s see, they would be at minimum 100 years of age, presuming Mom gave birth to her son when she was around 18 years old.
The likelihood is that these parents of missing Korean War vets who begged Donald Trump to do something about their sons’ remains would be much older. Maybe about 120 years of age.
Thus, for the president to say that “thousands” of these parents came to the presidential candidate — who then became president — to seek the return of their remains is an … outright, bald-faced lie.
He is lying in a manner few of us have ever seen in a public official, let alone in the president of the United States.
I gave up a while ago griping about Donald Trump’s penchant for tweeting policy statements. I cannot let pass this individual’s continuing to lie directly to the people he was elected to serve.
