‘Clinical sociopath’ Trump’s ‘mental illness’ helps him lie to people: business reporter

Published

on

Longtime reporter Kurt Eichenwald explained over the weekend how President Donald Trump has leveraged a “mental illness” to help him lie to people over the years.

In a series of tweets on Sunday, Eichenwald recalled interacting with Trump while he was a business reporter in 1987. Trump has a pattern of lying to reporters anonymously to get favorable media coverage, Eichenwald said.

“I have known Donald Trump since 1987,” Eichenwald wrote. “Like everyone else who knows him well, before he became a politician, I know he is liar, a narcissist, and eventually I knew he was mentally ill. At that time, he professed to be a democrat. This had nothing to do with politics.”

Eichenwald remembered pitching an editor a story after Trump lied about a stock trade.

“The editor did not even look up from his computer and said the words I remember to this day: ‘Dog [bites] man. Donald Trump lies,'” Eichenwald said. “In other words, everyone in the financial world KNEW Trump was a pathological liar, in 1987. Proving it was like proving the sun rose in the morning.”

Read all of Eichenwald’s tweets below to learn how Trump’s alleged mental illness was a benefit to him when lying to media outlets.

After it was released that former special counsel Robert Mueller would testify in an open hearing, President Donald Trump appears to be flailing and swinging in every direction.

A Washington Post report detailed the strange attacks and complaints that began Wednesday morning. In a call-in interview with Fox Business, Trump seemed confused, saying that Mueller "terminated emails" and "terminated text messages," that were all published publicly. He repeated the claim in a Twitter attack as he was taking off for the G-20 summit in Japan.

This botched fact-check accused Bernie Sanders of being ‘misleading’ for when he was 100 percent correct

Published

on

Ahead of the Democrats' first 2020 primary debate on Wednesday, the Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler published a piece listing claims from many of the prominent candidates. And on many counts, it showed a bizarre tendency to apply undue criticism to the Democrats.

While President Donald Trump has provided an unending amount of work for fact-checkers, and fact-checking has been endlessly valuable under his presidency, the practice is not without its flaws. Kessler, in particular, has previously been called out for applying bizarrely specific standards to statements and sometimes calling obviously true statements "misleading" if he doesn't like what they imply.
