He’s just an ol’ truth teller

Trump just can’t help it. After his duly appointed surrogates spin, obfuscate, deconstruct and prevaricate for him, he has to blurt out the truth.

At least that is the assessment of Kathleen Parker in her May 16 Washington Post column.



“Invariably, the president contradicts statements from his communications team and other officials, and blurts the truth,” she writes. “As counterintuitive as it seems, Trump is a truth-teller among spinmeisters.”

Those spinmeisters said the president did not share classified info with the Ruskies. Then Trump says he can do anything he wants. He is the president, implying he did.


The White House crew tells the suspicious press the firing of FBI Director James Comey was due to recommendations of his Justice Department leadership. Then Trump says he was thinking about the Russia investigation and thinking about firing Comey all along.

Parker concludes by advising readers: “Wait awhile. Trump, the impulsive truth-sayer, will tell us sooner or later.”

That sounds catchy. Put it to music and belt it out, Donald:

    Thomas, do you really think your readers are stupid? Or are you that shallow? This phrase, “Those spinmeisters said the president did not share classified info with the Ruskies. Then Trump says he can do anything he wants. He is the president, implying he did.” You are aware that contextually they are from two entirely unrelated events and conversations, right? Or did you think that no one pays attention anymore? Trump’s assertion that he can do whatever he wants was him detailing his authority to fire Comey, or any other appointee that serves at the pleasure of the President. Face it, you suck at spin.

    Bob you’re reading comprehension needs some serious work.

    Trump said that no matter what he said to the Russians, it was alright, and surely not criminal, because he’s the president and when the president does it, that makes it legal. (Paraphrasing). You owe Thomas an apology again.

    Sounds familiar right?

    In a series of morning tweets, Trump declared he has “an absolute right” as president to share “facts pertaining to terrorism” and airline safety with Russia. Although top aides on Monday had declared reports about Trump’s discussions false, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster on Tuesday sought instead to downplay the significance of the information Trump revealed. The president had been engaging in “routine sharing” with foreign leaders, he said, arguing that some of the information was publicly available.”
