It’s a new era: when the POTUS isn’t afraid to lie openly and brazenly, even when the truth is obvious. Kind of like Nixon saying all of those things he said privately on the tapes directly at press conferences.
Will it matter if he’s corrected over and over again in the media? Or will it become “normal” for the president to make things up and repeat them as matter of fact?
Are these just more distractions like during the campaign? Get people upset about the meaningless lie so they won’t focus on the real policy changes that affect the country?
