    What is sad, is we know that Trump is a patholigical liar. Period. No dissuccion even with his supporters and the GOP.

    What is so sad is that even knowing this, the supporters and the GOP, including our own delagation support him. Why? Is policy over decency becoming the norm within the GOP and Trump supporters?

    They are the ones betraying this country. And they truly are damaging it's moral fabric.

    Add religion into the equation and people wonder why millenials and thousands of others no longer believe their religious leaders who support this regime.

    A liar calling liar a liar! It sure has reached almost comic dramatic proportions.

    @Fabulous Jen: "I find it amazing this article is about the President of the United States and his former personal attorney for more than a decade. ... We are expected to sort through this horrific mess and pick a side? You're kidding, right?"

    Ugh. It is incredible and absurd that America did this to itself by electing Trump as POTUS.

    Through numerous Republican and Democratic administrations, America -- warts and all -- was respected by legitimate governments and feared by illegitimate around the world.

    Under Trump, all that changed. And this spectacle-within-a-spectacle of this Cohen-Trump-pardon kerfuffle perfectly captures why America's allies and foes were correct to reassess their prior judgment of America. If Americans and the American model of governance can produce an Executive such as erratic and incapable as Trump -- even once -- it can and likely will do so again. While America is distracted daily by the foreseeable and avoidable ethical and legal swamp of nearly all things Trump, the world is moving on without us.

    What a conundrum. Two liars. One we are told not to believe because he is a convicted liar and will be going to prison because he lied for his boss. The second, a known congenital liar who has been documented for his lies over the years, great and small. So who do we believe?

    Do we believe the convicted liar who lied for his boss? Or do we believe the boss who lies as a matter of course? In this, during the time the employee liar was lying for his boss, he may have had a conversation about what help could the boss give, but since we only have the boss's word, there is ample reason not to believe him.

    Donald Trump lies about anything that can give him an edge and win whatever he wants. Lying about Michael Cohen asking for a pardon would allow him hit Cohen again and really stick it to him. Nonetheless, thinking that Cohen would lie now that he's going to prison and his old boss is no longer his boss, there is far less reason to believe that he lied. It is far more likely that Trump lied once again about Cohen.

    We know that Trump doesn't like disloyalty and is ruthless in his punishment of those who turn and threaten him. He calls them "rats". Did he forget the word: "stoolie"?

    "You're a liar", "No, you're a liar"!

    So Presidential. "Only the best people". So tired of winning.

    I find it amazing this article is about the President of the United States and his former personal attorney for more than a decade. Two men who have spent a majority of their lifetimes lying to people, bullying people, and trying to intimidate people. We are expected to sort through this horrific mess and pick a side? You're kidding, right?

    You can wrap yourself in the flag, Trump, and you can spend all day signing Bibles.

    I challenge anyone to read this article again and tell me we can't do any better than this!

    So funny to hear a well know liar, claim that someone else is lying.

    It bears little weight coming from Donald.

    Trump says Michael Cohen lied about not seeking pardon

    ====

    Really?
    Then prove it bigly guy!

    Cohen testified under oath to Congress.
    Lying would just put him in jail even longer.

    YOU on the other hand, Mr. pathological Liar - can't tell the Truth no matter what.

    So, the ball is in Trump's court now.
    Put up, or shut up.
