Trump Repeats His Lie That He Watched A Video Of Money Landing In Iran

Source: Huffington Post

Donald Trump on Thursday repeated his false claim that he had watched a video of money being unloaded from a plane at an airport in Iran ― after his campaign acknowledged that such footage doesn’t exist.

“It was interesting because a tape was made, you saw that? With the airplane coming in?” Trump asked the crowd at a rally in Portland, Maine. “Nice plane. And the airplane coming and the money coming off, I guess. That was given to us, has to be, by the Iranians.

~~~~~~~~~

It was the second time in two days that the Republican nominee for president claimed to have seen Iranian video of money being unloaded from a U.S. plane. He first made the claim Wednesday morning, during a rally in Daytona Beach, Florida, and said the video he had seen was “top secret.”

Trump’s spokeswoman told The Washington Post early Thursday that the candidate had actually seen publicly available footage of American citizens disembarking from a plane in Geneva in January. Spokeswoman Hope Hicks didn’t explain why Trump claimed the video was top secret Iranian military footage.

1. Honestly I don't know how his staff does it.

It isn't the lying, it is the lying about stupid shit which creates problems for them and it literally never ends. If Trump is talking he is probably lying about something creating messes for his staff to cleanup.

3. But he has THE BEST lies, believe me, THE BEST- just ask him.

 

Of course he will lie and say he doesn't lie which will be another example of THE BEST lies!

He must not have heard that saying all the rest of us heard as kids--- Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive. The Con's web (just a cursory glance)...

5. Which is why

this might fit: Confabulation. "In psychiatry, confabulation (verb: confabulate) is a memory disturbance, defined as the production of fabricated, distorted or misinterpreted memories about oneself or the world, without the conscious intention to deceive."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confabulation

Anyone who has spent time with dementia or Alzheimer's patients knows how they
blend time periods, associations, even people into one another. Events from the
1940s become mixed with and added to events in the 1960s. You can't change
their minds, it's very upsetting to them. So you play along.

6. I think he may be confusing Iraq and Iran.

I'm pretty sure I saw a film of George W's sending of trunks of US dollars to spread around Iraq to give to the people or who knows what, but it was a huge amount of money.

If nobody else has seen this footage (part of a report about W's handling of the war in Iraq) or somebody who should know is sure that such a thing never happened, I'll gladly retract my assertion. Like most sane people, I am victimized often by confusing places and times and a lot of other facts. However, I'm also glad to change my mind and admit I was wrong if it turns out I was.

7. It's like he sees something and then one part of his brain..

comes up with a story to fill in the parts that he didn't see.

Then some other part of his brain splices it all together.

Then he retells it as if the part real / part confabulation form a reality-based whole.

Very strange.

11. May not be a lie.

He could have been shown the video by his Russian handlers.

Or, perhaps worse, he could have seen the video with he help of someone with security clearances. Like the fellow who introduced him in Florida.

12. Now, if this video was actually "top secret"

...wouldn't he be up on some sort of charges for telling everyone what he saw? You'd think there would be a scandal at the very least. I mean, people - even ones as crazy as Trump - can't gain access to "Top Secret" information and then release that info without consequence.

13. Like in the movies, I'm waiting for the trick ending

where he says he's been playing the GOP and all of their drone bigot followers for all their worth on purpose.

CONGRATULATIONS HILLARY! We finally turned this country around and demoted republicans to a party of afterthoughts and inconsequential nobodies.

And Hillary's likable numbers keep rising. It's the perfect storm!

15. This is what comes from living in the Faux News Bubble

A worldview mental construct that is divorced from reality and
logically consistent to themselves - yet it doesn't exist!

We know now that Don watches TV all the time, even during interviews

Brainwashed!

16. He's admitted he screwed it up

 

and he's probably still choking on it:
