Lies* and the Lying Liars** who tell them, Part Infinity

From Yahoo News:

Trump Lied About Parents Of Korean War Vets, Now He's Lying About Returned Bodies

The president claims North Korea has returned 200 service members’ remains. That has not happened.

The U.S. has not received the remains of U.S. soldiers from North Korea, despite what the "president" has said.

About this article

"Trump told a rally audience in South Carolina: “We’re getting the remains of our great heroes back.”

 The only problem: No remains have yet been returned, and it is unclear when that might happen. “We have not yet physically received them,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told the Senate Appropriations Committee on Wednesday, but said that he is “optimistic” it would take place “in the not-too-distant future.” 

 That explanation was not sufficient for Iraq War veteran Will Fischer, with the progressive veterans group VoteVets. “It’s beyond the pale to lie about remains of fallen service persons already being returned, when they, in fact, haven’t been,” Fischer said. “Remains like these aren’t some prize, where you can make up some big fish stories. These are troops who died in war, and whose families have had no closure. He disrespected Gold Star families during the campaign, and he’s doing it now.”  

 The White House press office did not respond to HuffPost’s queries "about why Trump was falsely claiming that bodies had been returned. They also did not provide the name of a single parent of a Korean War service member who had lobbied Trump."

Trump said... ”Were getting the remains of our great heroes back”

But he also said this... “He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

So Donald, which is it? Are the men captured and/or killed by the North Koreans heroes? And if they are, was McCain a hero? Or, are you lying again?

Meghan Trainor was right in her song... “I know you’re lyin’ cause your lips are movin”

Trump has a serious problem knowing the difference between the truth and a lie.

How many are there of these "parents" of Korean War veterans and how old are they anyway? My friend's dad served in Korea and he is in his mid 80s!!

Cultists apparently believe right up until the cyanide kicks in.

Dave, It's sickeningly obvious to sentient Americans that Trump has no core values, so he can at one moment mock a POW and then in the next moment pretend he cares about the remains of other POWs. Trump hasn't an empathetic bone in his bloated body.

Jerry I don't believe Trump knows what truth is.

Possumlady, Trump made that whole story up, like he does so many of his lies.

Kevin, Yes. That describes Trump cultists.
