When the Truth Inadvertently Slips Out

When the Truth Inadvertently Slips Out June 14, 2018

One of the reasons why Trump’s lawyers don’t want him to testify before the Mueller investigation is that he has a terrible and incurable case of verbal diarrhea. He just talks. And talks. And talks. And goes in circles. And sometimes, the truth just kind of slips out unintentionally, as it did in his press conference at the summit with Kim Jong-Un.

I think he’ll do it. I really believe that, otherwise I wouldn’t be doing this. I really believe, and — it was really the engine-testing site, in addition to all of the other things that they’ve agreed to do. It was the — they have a very powerful engine-testing site, that again we’re able to see because of the heat that it emits. And, yeah, I’m able to — I’m very happy, I’ll tell you what, I’m very happy with those two points, the two points you mentioned, but I think you might be referring to the thing that’s not in, which is the engine-testing site.

Honestly, I think he’s going to do these things. I may be wrong, I mean I may stand before you in six months and say, hey, I was wrong — I don’t know that I’ll ever admit that, but I’ll find some kind of an excuse.

That last sentence had to have his advisers just cringing. It’s an admission, blurted out with no forethought whatsoever, that he can’t admit he was wrong, almost ever. He makes up excuses. He lies. He rationalizes. But almost never does he just tell the truth or admit to being wrong. Unless he just blurts it out like this because there doesn’t appear to be any actual thought going on. It’s like our parents told us, engage your brain before engaging your mouth.
