In further evidence of the phantasmagorical world in which President Donald Trump and his minions are living, the US President's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, has claimed that "truth isn't truth" during a television interview.
Mr Giuliani was arguing that Mr Trump should not testify to the Russia probe, as he might be "trapped into perjury as he is an habitual and compulsive liar. Of course he wouldn't lie as he is president, but you know Trump is Trump or rather he isn't, if you see what I mean".
"Truth is truth", NBC host Chuck Todd countered. Mr Giuliani denied this was the case, and said two rival versions of events were in contention. Trump aides and lickspittles have a track record of denying factual evidence with their own fantastical version of events, notably when Kellyanne Conway told Todd in January 2017 that the White House was entitled to present "alternative facts." Todd retorted at the time: "Alternative facts are not facts. They're falsehoods."
Mr Giuliani then said: "I'm not going to be rushed into having him testify so he can be trapped into perjury. You know how he likes to lie." He added: "When you tell me that the president should testify because he's going to tell the truth and he shouldn't worry, well that's so silly because it's somebody's version of the truth. Not the truth."
Todd responded: "Truth is truth." Mr Giuliani said: "Truth isn't truth."
So what do we take from all this? Anything which Donald J. Trump utters isn’t true, or is it?
