Trump and his spawn constantly change their stories. I can’t imagine being in the Trump White House and forced to explain his inconsistency or ‘spin’ his lies. This is the most disgusting job in the world, and a job no man or woman with morals and principles would accept.
On Sunday three conflicting stories greatly damaged the reputations of members of Trump’s circle of sinners.
“Rex Tillerson said that the president told his Russian counterpart that members of Congress are pushing for additional sanctions over Moscow’s interference in the 2016 election.”
Tillerson’s comments occurred immediately after the meeting between Trump and Putin on Friday. Sunday Trump tweeted an apparent rebuttal.
“Sanctions were not discussed at my meeting with President Putin.”
The most ridiculous comment from Trump came on Sunday, and forced reactions by dozens of politicos, including members of his own party.
“Putin & I discussed forming an impenetrable Cyber Security unit so that election hacking, & many other negative things, will be guarded … and safe.”
The CIA reports that Russian efforts to ‘hack’ information have increased since the Trump win in the Electoral College.
Marco Rubio tweeted: “Partnering with Putin on a ‘Cyber Security Unit’ is akin to partnering with Assad on a ‘Chemical Weapons Unit.’”
“It is not the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard, but it’s pretty close,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
“I’m sure that Vladimir Putin could be of enormous assistance in that effort since he is doing the hacking,” Sen. John McCain joked on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
“This is like the guy who robbed your house proposing a working group on burglary,” Ash Carter, who was secretary of defense when the Russians meddled last year, said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Finally, there was the disclosed meeting between Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort who sat down with a Russian lawyer who has ties to the Kremlin last June.
“White House chief of staff Reince Priebus dismissed the meeting as “a big nothing burger” that was about adoption and not at all out of the ordinary.”
Later in the day Trump Jr. changed his story twice, eventually admitting that the meeting was an effort to obtain information about Hillary Clinton collected by Russian agents.
This is what Trump’s staff can expect. They agreed to work for a man without a conscience or morals and refuses to tell the truth. I don’t feel pity for them, I feel shame. They are intended to represent America to the world, and instead they offer “alternative facts” which add more embarrassment for our nation.
Would you be willing to serve in the Trump administration as a paid liar? I couldn’t; I cherish my integrity.
Please re-post; thank you.
