Donald Trump believes his campaign strategy is honesty, which is a laugh and a half. George Stephanopoulos, on ABC News’ Your Voice, Your Vote, called him out on his falsehoods, saying that he’s got more false statements out there than any other candidate. As is typical of Trump, he pushed back against that because he’s a legend in his own mind, so he’s right about everything.
It started with Stephanopoulos asking Trump about what Hillary said about ISIS showing videos of Trump to Muslims and using them as a recruitment tool. Politifact has rated that “False” already, but there’s plenty that Trump has said that is also false. He refused to acknowledge that, and said:
You know, they make up things in the world of politics. They’re all talk and no action. They’re politicians.
Stephanopoulos shot right back:
You sure you want to go down that road? The fact-checkers have called you out on more false statements than any other candidate.
And yes, he wanted to go down that road. He said that he’s been 100 percent right on crime. He didn’t explain what he was talking about, but he did tweet an infographic on crime that was not only wholly incorrect, but very racist in its intent. If that’s what Trump is talking about, then more lies just poured out of his mouth.
And, of course, he quadrupled down on seeing thousands of people cheering in New Jersey on 9-11, and he interrupted and talked over Stephanopoulos when he tried to correct Trump that it was people in the West Bank that were celebrating, but not in the U.S.
Watch the video below. He’s so sure of himself that it’s becoming sickening. He’s a liar. The question is whether he believes what he’s saying, or if he knows he’s a lying piece of pond scum.
