'Tell the truth ... for a change': ex-President Carter's advice to Trump

Source: Reuters

Former Democratic U.S. President Jimmy Carter on Tuesday called on President Donald Trump to cooperate with Congress’ impeachment inquiry, saying his refusal to comply with lawmakers’ requests has left Americans grappling for answers.

The Republican leader faces allegations he abused his office by pushing Ukraine to investigate his political rival Joe Biden. Earlier on Tuesday, the Trump administration blocked a key witness from appearing before three House committees, prompting a subpoena.

“Tell the truth, I think, for a change,” Carter told MSNBC when asked what advice he would give Trump.

I'm not sure the pResident is even capable of spelling Truth, let alone saying anything truthful.

1. They'd need to drug Cheeto first.

Pentothal? Or perhaps something stronger - considering the subject.

Totally incapable of telling the truth.

4. I don't think he's mentally capable

of being honest - he's been creating a new reality for himself for decades every time he opens his mouth. I don't think he can change.

7. I've got this neat chart of Cognitive Biases - perhaps: Confabulation, Confirmation bias, pareidolia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cognitive_biases

There are so many that seem apt. But not knowing nothing about the psych fields, especially about psycopaths like the peeResident, I'll need to rely on much smarter people to interpret.

And yes, at 72+ he's beyond redemption or the ability to change.

(Damn, that's close to my age.)

10. I remember when a wise man (Dan Rather) noted...

... that there well could come a time when it was important that America believed Trump and most of us wouldn't.

12. Next up, Twitler will call for Carter's impeachment

makes as much sense as his call for Romney's impeachment. I wonder if he really doesn't understand how impeachment works, or if he just figures his dumb-ass base doesn't know?

13. When he comes close to releasing the truth he promptly reinterprets what he said.

Truth is Trump bane. You can’t believe your lying ears.
