Time magazine interviewed Cheeto Jesus yesterday and questioned him about lies and lying. Like Sarah Palin, when caught in a lie, CJ engages in word salad; in this interview, he went to the Defcon 4 of word salad. Here is the textbook example, when answering a question about him continually calling the credibility of the intelligence community into question:
“I’m not saying—no, I’m not blaming. First of all, I put Mike Pompeo in. I put Senator Dan Coats in. These are great people. I think they are great people and they are going to, I have a lot of confidence in them. So hopefully things will straighten out. But I inherited a mess, I inherited a mess in so many ways. I inherited a mess in the Middle East, and a mess with North Korea, I inherited a mess with jobs, despite the statistics, you know, my statistics are even better, but they are not the real statistics because you have millions of people that can’t get a job, ok. And I inherited a mess on trade. I mean we have many, you can go up and down the ladder. But that’s the story. Hey look, in the mean time, I guess, I can’t be doing so badly, because I’m president, and you’re not. You know. Say hello to everybody OK?”
I’ll just leave this right here.
