Both Donald and Melania Are Liars, and Proud of It.


Donald Trump lies without apology or conscious.  He lies more often than he tells the truth.   Trump’s statements were awarded PolitiFact’s 2015 Lie of the Year.  He even lied about the birth place of the Orlando shooter, which was widely known.  The ghostwriter for the Art of the Deal described Trump’s personality as “pathologically impulsive and self-centered.”  Tony Schwartz spent 18 months with Trump before writing the Art of the Deal.  Mr. Schwartz gave an interview in which he explained:

“I put lipstick on a pig,” he said. “I feel a deep sense of remorse that I contributed to presenting Trump in a way that brought him wider attention and made him more appealing than he is.” He went on, “I genuinely believe that if Trump wins and gets the nuclear codes there is an excellent possibility it will lead to the end of civilization.”

Schwartz explains that for Donald Trump, “Lying is second nature to him.” “More than anyone else I have ever met, Trump has the ability to convince himself that whatever he is saying at any given moment is true, or sort of true, or at least ought to be true.” Often, Schwartz said, the lies that Trump told him were about money—“how much he had paid for something, or what a building he owned was worth, or how much one of his casinos was earning when it was actually on its way to bankruptcy.” Trump bragged that he paid only eight million dollars for Mar-a-Lago, but omitted that he bought a nearby strip of beach for a record sum. After gossip columns reported, erroneously, that Prince Charles was considering buying several apartments in Trump Tower, Trump implied that he had no idea where the rumor had started. (“It certainly didn’t hurt us,” he says, in “The Art of the Deal.”) Wayne Barrett, a reporter for theVillage Voice, later revealed that Trump himself had planted the story with journalists. Schwartz also suspected that Trump engaged in such media tricks, and asked him about a story making the rounds—that Trump often called up news outlets using a pseudonym. Trump didn’t deny it. As Schwartz recalls, he smirked and said, “You like that, do you?”

Schwartz says of Trump, “He lied strategically. He had a complete lack of conscience about it.” Since most people are “constrained by the truth,” Trump’s indifference to it “gave him a strange advantage.”

It now appears Melania Trump isn’t constrained by the truth either.  Our first clue was the conflicting reports she gave after plagiarizing the Michelle Obama speech.


In her nationally televised speech she claimed to be a college graduate.  However it appears that was a lie.  The amazing thing is that most of America didn’t expect her to be an overly educated woman.  It was clear that she had achieved success as a result of her appearance, and not her intellect.

So now that the American people have been unnecessarily lied to, it seems that we probably should assume anything coming out of Trump’s mouth is a lie.  Worse, when Trump is caught in a lie, he is known to “double down” rather than to admit that he lied.

  1. Hello Malia! It’s funny how those who lie habitually, such as The Donald and $arah, are immune to scrutiny and given a free pass! It appears that Melanoma’s website detailing her “accomplishments” has disappeared. After her “fantastic” speech at the RNC convention, people started looking into her academic achievements. Surprise, surprise – very vague on substance, and plenty of embellishment! It eerily resembles the academic prowess of a certain “vetted”??? candidate whose “alma mater” had no recollection of her! The Donald is quite the study in contradictions, isn’t he?


  2. The same feeling perplexed Mark Singer in the late 1990s when he was working on a profile of Trump for The New Yorker. Singer wondered what went through his mind when he was not playing the public role of Donald Trump. What are you thinking about, Singer asked him, when you are shaving in front of the mirror in the morning? Trump, Singer writes, appeared baffled. Hoping to uncover the man behind the actor’s mask, Singer tried a different tack:

    “O.K., I guess I’m asking, do you consider yourself ideal company?”

    “You really want to know what I consider ideal company?,” Trump replied. “A total piece of ass.”


  3. It’s all about appearances. Gold plated crap all over the place. Now we find more appearance than substance in his spouse. She looks emotionally empty, using the model stare and smile to cover her real feelings. When he loses, she will bail and write a tell all.


    1. aj,
      If she does write a book that might be enough money to support her and what a relief for her to be free of dependency on him!


  4. MALIA —
    You will find this funny coming from me, but I feel sorry for Melania because I think she succumbed to the promise of “the American Dream” Donald offered to an also-ran immigrant model (not supermodel).

    From her perspective things must have looked amazing, but the reality is that Melania lives under his thumb. I’m basing this on her almost-invisible life outside the campaign and on a recent interview with Trump and Pence.

    * Melania is in Trump’s life to be eye-candy and a symbol of his virility. She is not a person to him…or likely to his other kids either.

    * And if you saw the horrific “60 Minutes” interview with Trump and Pence, it’s easy to conjecture what life is like in the Trump household: PUT UP AND SHUT UP. Trump is the emperor of a very small, gold-plated empire in NYC and his own entitled kids don’t know what a bubble they live in.

    I’d bet one of Trump’s millions that his alternative-reality staff created Melania’s Web site and the lie about her degree, feeling secure that the public doesn’t check this stuff. (How hugely Trump under-estimated scrutiny of his family is a joke!) I’m betting likewise that Trump never thought anyone would spot the plagiarism in her speech. Melania did what she was told: practice that speech until she knew it cold. She did. After all, that’s what lapdogs do.
