It is not clear what exactly changed over the last two days, but it appears that today, President Trump is a little less of a traitor than many thought on Monday.
What could have reduced the intensity that had some news personalities and others saying his statements on Monday were the equivalent of and on par with the attack on Pearl Harbor and Kristallnacht? A slip of the tongue.
Sure, President Trump has a unique way of murdering the English language but that is pretty much the extent of his offense. One of the things that may have eclipsed the idea that Trump and Putin are conspiring together against the United States may have been former President Obama’s remarks in South Africa on Tuesday.
In Johannesburg at an event marking the 100th birthday of Nelson Mandela, Mr. Obama said with a straight face that today’s politicians lie and when challenged they often double down on the lie. That was quite a revelation from a president who among many other deceptive things said “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” when promoting his revolutionary healthcare plan.
I guess he knows what he’s talking about. Those were all lies.
