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:
