Trump Stabs Reality in the Back

Trump Stabs Reality in the Back May 7, 2018

Another day, another completely invented reality — that is, another lie — from Donald Trump. Speaking at the NRA convention, he pulls this one directly out of his rectal cavity, though how he managed to get it around his head is beyond my ability to understand.

“I recently read a story that in London, which has unbelievably tough gun laws, a once very prestigious hospital, right in the middle, is like a warzone for horrible stabbing wounds. Yes, that’s right, they don’t have guns, they have knives, and instead there’s blood all over the floors of this hospital. They say it’s as bad as a military warzone hospital.”

Leaving aside the ludicrous claim to have read anything whatsoever. this is SOP for Trump. It’s the same as “many people are saying.” Just make shit up, attribute it to some anonymous, unnamed source, and then when his spokespeople are challenged to support the claim they’ll blather out some meaningless drivel. And no one will bother to follow up. No reporter will call him a liar for it. They’ll say he “misspoke” or just brush it off as “oh, that’s just Trump.” No, that’s what a pathological liar does. And that’s what Trump is. And everyone should stop pretending otherwise.

Charlie Falconer, a former Justice Minister for the British government, debunked the lie:

And they believe it because, like Trump, they simply don’t care what is true and what is not. And that is both tragic and dangerous.
