It literally blows my mind that so-called journalists are having such a difficult time using the word “LIE” in the same sentence with the name Donald Trump.
According to the New York Times Maggie Haberman, John Cusack saying she should use the word “lie” just ruined the classic teen movie “Say Anything” for her.
Awwww, John Cusack hurt her itty-bitty feelings and Say Anything will never be the same for her. Really?
Haberman and others who are the supposed firewall against Trump sinking our republic. They are literally pushing back against folks saying they should call a lie, a lie. Trump is lying. What’s so hard about using the word “lie”?
Haberman literally makes a lame excuse of why she can’t use the word lie, when Trump lies. Unreal. Haberman had no issues saying the Clinton campaign “lied”.
These folks haven’t learned anything since 2016. We are so screwed.
Trump told two demonstrable falsehoods this AM, one about his administration’s policy of separating undocumented immigrant kids inclu infants from their parents, which he tried to claim wasn’t his own policy. The other was falsely claiming his own aide didn’t give a bg briefing.

This is really ruining Say Anything for me. Said with respect for you as an actor. But, I’ll quote a person who knows Trump well who messaged me describing the lack of understanding that ppl have about “how Trump’s ignorance and mendacity interact.” https://t.co/XUEjXFHSdj

Lie. Not mendacity. Not demonstrable falsehood. This is your job. Sorry you don’t have all day. You’re spending too much time on this when you could have skipped it and gone right to LIE in the first place.

And Haberman, who came up from the tabloid world, has never been reluctant to deploy the "L" word when referring to what Democrats say: pic.twitter.com/3Eman30cX3
