The Toronto Star has had a reporter with the expertise and wisdom to catch all of President Trump’s lies.
Two days, 23 false claims from Donald Trump — including one spectacular lie
Now ever since the president as candidate stuck his head into the open it has been the target of journalist barbers ready to trim his orange hair and muzzle his big mouth because it spews lies. The Toronto Star reporter noted above spotted 23 false claims exiting Mr. Trump’s mouth in 2 days.
One of the first journalists to notice the president’s lack of honesty was a New York Times reporter reviewing the first Republican debate on PBS who questioned the then candidate Trump’s sincerity in running for office. Once it became apparent that the president really wanted to be president, that same New York Times journalist wrote an apology of sorts for his inaccurate, uninformed, unwise assessment of Mr Trump’s candidacy by explaining that he had been too aloof – rather disinclined to associate with those, another Toronto Star reporter, denigrated as people Mr. Trump would not permit to work among his other servants, the “deplorables” as Ms. Clinton labeled them. But despite his inexperience in associating with this crowd our apologetic NYT sophisticate warned that Mr. Trump the candidate was a deceiver, in other words a liar.
Since I read that apology nearly 2 years ago I began watching out for Mr. Trump’s deceptions, his lies, as The Toronto Star reporter calls them. The first really big fib seemed to have popped up in February 2017 at a press conference when he said that Sweden had been experiencing problems with Moslem migrants. I remember the ridicule that lambasted the president’s Trumpian claim. For at least two days my CP24 channel offered non-stop video’s of Swedish authorities gleefully heaping scorn on Trump and his claims that Sweden had problems with Moslems. I saw and heard so much of this ridicule for nearly 48 television hours that I began to believe that President Trump’s assertions about Sweden were likely the result of misinformation: he said he’d learned about Sweden’s troubles on television. But wanting to understand the enormity of the days-long ridicule the president’s Sweden statements had evoked, I did an Online search and learned of Malmo and Gotham Sweden’ and that Gotham Sweden was considered the most segregated city in Europe and that Malmo Sweden was such a concern outside North America that my WordPress blogs about Sweden’s migrant difficulties elicited searches for the “truth about Malmo”, a place I wouldn’t have known existed if President Trump hadn’t vaguely referred to Sweden’s migrant problems.
If the president has been “guilty as charged” by that watchful Toronto Star journalist keeping track of his lies: then the president’s comments about Sweden must have seemed the most “spectacular” of his lies. Of course no journalists online or on television apologized for the media barrage of mockery and misinformation that must have permitted anyone within range of English media to believe that Sweden is without migrant problems and that President Trump is the greatest of liars.
