“How do you know if Donald Trump is lying? His lips are moving.” ―David Letterman

“If I still had a show,” says the 69-year-old, dressed in a baggy sweater and cargo pants and sitting high above midtown Manhattan in a conference room at his publicist’s offices, “people would have to come and take me off the stage. ‘Dave, that’s enough about Trump. We’ve run out of tape.’ It’s all I’d be talking about. I’d be exhausted.”
Beyond that, I remember a friend in the PR business told me that he knew for a fact — this was three or four presidential campaigns ago — that Donald Trump would never run for president; he was just monkeying around for the publicity.
So I assumed that was the story and now it turns out he’s the president. Now, who owns New York?
Say the head of the family, let’s say his name was Larry Wasserstein.
If Larry behaved the way Donald behaves, for even a six-week period, the family would get together and say, “Jesus, somebody better call the doctor.”
Then they’d ask him to step down.
But Trump’s the president and he can lie about anything from the time he wakes up to what he has for lunch and he’s still the president. I don’t get that.
I’m tired of people being bewildered about everything he says: “I can’t believe he said that.”
We gotta stop that and instead figure out ways to protect ourselves from him.
We know he’s crazy.
We gotta take care of ourselves here now.
That press conference that he held berating the news media?
I mean, how do you build a dictatorship?
First, you undermine the press: “The only truth you’re going to hear is from me.”
And he hires the Hunchback of Notre Dame, Steve Bannon, to be his little buddy.
Bannon looks like a guy who goes to lunch, gets drunk, and comes back to the office: “Steve, could you have just one drink?” “Fuck you.”
How is a white supremacist the chief adviser to our president?
Did anybody look that up?
I don’t know.
’m sure the Russians groomed Trump.
They gave him tips: “You want to be an authoritarian dictator? Sure, that’s not a problem. We’ll tell you how to do it, for God’s sake.”
I think it was just all like that, because that’s the way Trump does business: “See if they’ll give us the tar coating? They’ll throw that in? Great, great. And by the way, we’re not paying the last 10 percent of the bill.”
How do you know if Donald Trump is lying? His lips are moving.
But in addition to every other thing that’s wrong with the Trump, he’s ignorant in a way that’s insulting to the office, insulting to America, insulting to human rights, insulting to civil rights, insulting to John Lewis.
DONALD TRUMP’S FIRING OF JAMES COMEY IS AN ATTACK ON AMERICAN DEMOCRACY
