This is why such at the NYT are "the enemy of the people" - or more accurately "the enemy of the truth and the enemy of the press." The NYT is not "the press." It is corporate propaganda.

Having been in a room with a group of people doesn't NOT mean you "know" everyone in the room. That is the LIE the NYT is telling.

Trump, on Fox & Friends, October 11: “I can tell you Matt Whitaker is a great guy, I know Matt Whitaker.”

Trump is so full of crap he must need comb his elaborate hairdo with toilet tissue.

But he doesn't have dementia and you better not judge his levels of craziness because you are not qualified to do this. :lamo

So what end of awful do you want? Trump does not at all know the man he put at the head of the Justice Dept temporary or not or that he has lied through his teeth about it. Clearly Trump is trying to distance himself from Whitaker as any Crime boss does with his underbosses.

Whitaker met with Trump in the oval office over a dozen times.

I think Trump might of once asked who that gentleman is that keeps coming into my office. Or is this a sign of dementia.

Yep, the press telling the truth will forever be seen as being "the enemy of the people" by some.

I'm just used to witnessing this behavior in Banana Republics, not in the USA. Perhaps it's time to rename your country the BRA...Banana Republic of America?

Trump saying this is almost as stupid as when Obama tried to claim the "God Damn America" Rev Wright wasn't the person he knew.

Whataboutism level 1000

Show me where Obama said he DID NOT KNOW Reverend Wright.

We have tape of Trump saying he knew Whitaker and tape of him saying he did not know Whitaker. Trump just can’t keep his lies straight yet you still support him. You should be ashamed of yourself for supporting a man who you know for a fact lies to the American people. What else is Trump lying about? When he’s accused how can you ever believe him when you know he lies without shame.

He never slept with those porn stars? Lie

He had no knowledge of the payments? Lie

He didn’t dictate letter about Trump tower meeting? Lie

U.S. Steel is building 6 new plants? Lie

I can’t remember a politician caught making so many PROVABLE lies.

Trump ran against the dishonest media and crooked politicians but he’s the most dishonest and crooked politician ever. But you know what P.T. Barnum said? There’s a sucker born every minute.

How do you manage not to realize that you’ve been suckered?

Look, I live in the UK, and I really can't see why you dislike Trump so much. It's obvious he wants what is best for the USA, rather than what is best for the rest of the world. The government in the UK is more interested in giving £4b to African aid than putting the money into a crumbling NHS. If Trump was our Prime Minister that would never have happened. You have a president who at long last wants to reduce and control immigration, where as your last president gave amnesty to thousands and thousands of illegal immigrants. If I were American I would have been throwing eggs at the white house when that idiot made such a stupid decision. Your economy is doing great, and many people feel there is a great feel good factor again. Being left is being socialist, and honestly, socialism really doesn't work. I certainly don't agree with all his policies, and I accept he can be a bit of a dinosaur, but your alternative would have a been a stupid woman who would have spent more time choosing handbags and shoes than actually making any serious decisions. At the time many people hated Thatcher, but she has gone down as probably the best prime minister the UK has ever had. Thatcher was a strong leader, and one who wasn't scared of making decisions, some of which upset people. Trump is another Thatcher, and you should be proud you have him !!

Trump wants what is best for Trump. He could give a rats behind about us on this side of the Atlantic or you on your side of it. Christ he does not even know the dif between the Baltic's and the Balkans. Give me a break.

He’s “another Thatcher” to the extent she was an ignoramus, liar, self-obsessive, cheat, racist, and ***** grabber.

judgment of craziness is not the issue! The issue is that he lies all the time and that has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt.

In addition, how can he explain putting a man in the highest position of Justice in the land without interviewing personally and knowing a lot about him. Either it is pure incompetence or pure corruption/manipulation of the truth or both (most likely)

You forgot the lie about having a big penis and Stormy saying it is extremely little.

Still, the man has the distinction of being our first President to have made a public boast about the size of his penis.

Well, if the appointment of Rosenstein is a guide for this, it would seem that being appointed by Trump is evidence that he doesn't know the guy.

You mean "doesn't know the guy" that has been in and out of his office for weeks? That guy...he doesn't know that guy? Whitaker had become WH liaison because he was Sessions Chief of Staff and Trump can't stand Sessions. The guy Trump said he knew and was a nice guy not more than a month ago....that guy?

So sorry...doesn't wash.

By your post, you bring up another example of a guy that Trump appointed and did not know.

He was as surprised as anyone could be that Sessions recused himself from the "Russia Investigation".

Again, Trump made the appointment and the guy did something entirely unexpected. This is far cry from the loyalty and resulting corruption shown by Holder in the employ of Obama.

Perhaps over the past couple years, Trump has learned a little more about vetting his appointees. Appointing people who share his opinions and positions seems pretty wise to me.

It worked well for Obama.
