Thread Name: BS: Is Trump a statesman or brinksman
Subject: RE: BS: Is Trump a statesman or brinksman
Trump's most salient characteristic is that he does not relate to the truth, either as a concept or as a realistic goal. He has made his mark as a salesman. And what a salesman. If he can convince you with something that might be truthful, he'll go that way, But it's not a conscious decision.
He is a BS-er. He is a smoke blower. It doesn't matter to him if what he says is a lie or not, what matters to him is if you will buy it.
