Another Trump (non) phone call

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal last week Trump challenged a reporter who characterized reaction to his speech [at the Boy Scout Jamboree] as “mixed.” The president boasted to the news outlet that the “head” of the organization called him to say it was the “greatest speech that was ever made to them.”

Today, an official with the Boy Scouts of America told ABC News that they are not aware of any such phone call that took place with Michael Surbaugh, the chief scout executive

In fact, instead of calling it the "greatest speech that was ever made to them" the Boy Scouts issued a statement shortly after Trump's speech to the National Jamboree, "I want to extend my sincere apologies to those in our Scouting family who were offended by the political rhetoric that was inserted into the jamboree," said Chief Scout Executive Michael Surbaugh. "That was never our intent. We sincerely regret that politics were inserted into the Scouting program"

Not really something you would say about "the greatest speech that was ever made"

Honestly, does Trump, just lie because he thinks he is above telling the truth or does he just not realize he is lying?

Lying bastard or delusional nutcase....these are the only choices left at this point.

I was a lying bastard fan but I am rapidly changing to delusional nutcase. He is now often lying when anyone with two bits of brain to rub together would know it will be easy-peasy to call him out on it but he just keeps on tRumping.

At some point, I've gotta believe that they will begin to hold him to account for what they are seeing: continuous bouts of delusion, not lying but delusions, all with a commonality: Each of his crisis points concerns his image, of a winner all the time, in everything he does, the conflict being the conflict with reality.

He chooses to go with fantasy when necessary to keep the story thread going. We all do that from time to time, but I'm not and you aren't POTUS.

I watched the speech. I listened to the audience response. It was quite clear to me that the speech was met with an enthusiastic response.

Not the point of the thread.

Trump claims he got a phone call from the "head" of the BSA praising the speech as the "greatest speech ever made to them"

The CEO of BSA says not only did he NOT make such a phone call but shortly after the speech was given he came out with a statement apologizing for the partisan speech.

Now who is telling the truth, CEO of the BSA or Trump?

So, there was no need for Lord Lard-Ass to lie about the phone call. He just lies for the practice or what?

So far the entire Trump supporter response has been one off topic post.
What's the matter guys? There are threads where we can't get you to shut up about Trump. Why so shy here?
