In response to a NY Times article shading the truth (aka lying) about a Trump quote (Trump lashed out at undocumented immigrants during a White House meeting, calling those trying to breach the country’s borders “animals”), some nice conservative comments:
I beg for my conservative friends to be honest about his shortcomings, & then you people come in w/ this complete, abject nonsense. That is not what he said, and you know it. Your indefensible lies feed the Trumpian wave. There was no ambiguity that he was talking about MS-13
His followers are not happy and proceed to equivocate, split hairs, and generally stroke their chins thoughtfully about how lying is OK with this president.
Or as John Nolte puts it:
Trump has been able to get the media to side with North Korea, Hamas, and MS-13.
