"Oh what a tangled web we weave when at first we start to deceive" Sir Walter Scott
...and oh what a tangled web Donald Trump is weaving as he continues deceiving. From The Hill:
"'Why did you lie to the American people, and why should we trust what you have to say now?' ABC News correspondent Jon Karl asked during a news conference, referencing the president's comments in audio recordings from February that COVID-19 was 'deadly' even as he publicly minimized the threat of the virus.
'That's a terrible question and the phraseology,' Trump said. 'I didn't lie. What I said is we have to be calm. We can't be panicked.'
'The way you phrased that is such a disgrace,' Trump added. 'It's a disgrace to ABC Television Network. It's a disgrace to your employer.'
Karl pressed Trump, noting that he told Woodward in early February that COVID-19 spread through the air and was more lethal than a "strenuous flu" even as he publicly compared the emerging outbreak to the common flu.
'What I went out and said is very simple. I want to show a level of confidence, and I want to show strength as a leader and I want to show our country is going to be fine one way or the other,' Trump said. 'There was no lie here. What we're doing is we're leading, and we're leading in a proper way.'"
Trump lies to cover the lies. Trump lies to divert attention away from the lies. Trump's web of deceit is pretty large...it is made of lies, upon lies, upon lies.

All the president is, is a glorified public relations man who spends his time flattering, kissing, and kicking people to get them to do what they are supposed to do anyway.
