A few days ago, I was asked on CNN to make sense of one more case in which Donald Trump had said something demonstrably false and then explained it away with a caustic tweet and an indignant interview.Trump is many things, some of them dark and dangerous, but at his core, he is a b.s. artist.Did Trump really believe that you can say something like that on live TV and no one would check? Did he think that no one would notice that the "60 Minutes" show consisted of two separate prerecorded interviews, with Putin in Moscow and Trump in New York? In fact, Trump was "bullshitting". He sees himself as important, a global celebrity, the kind of man who should or could have met Putin. For weeks, Trump continued to imply that there were huge findings to be released soon.In fact, it appears highly unlikely that Trump ever sent any investigators to Hawaii in the first place. Harry Frankfurt concludes that liars and truth-tellers are both acutely aware of facts and truths.
