But Trump shows no remorse for his lies
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.
