But Trump shows no re­morse for his lies

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion -

In re­sponse to “A ly­ing pres­i­dent isn’t un­prece­dented” (July 19 Fo­rum):

Fo­rum writer Thomas Quigley cites Pres­i­dent Obama’s “hypocrisy” in com­ment­ing about politi- cal lead­ers who lie, but misses the en­tire point of Obama’s re­marks.

Obama noted that “all politi­cians lie,” but the dif­fer­ence is that in the old days politi­cians usu­ally didn’t dou­ble-down on the same lie again and again.

Obama’s im­pli­ca­tion was that these days some politi­cians are shame­less and with­out re­morse about their lies and will even lie about their lies and walk back their walk-backs.
