The New York Times and other media outlets, as well as millions of American citizens, seem to think President Trump is a compulsive liar who thinks anything he says is pure political gospel.
The truth is, President Trump reacts to things he sees or reads the way an immature child does in a lot of cases. As for lying, well..........
One can point back to Isuzu's ad campaign from 1986-90, featuring actor David Leisure as Joe Isuzu, who was an unashamed, bald-faced liar whose statements were refuted with graphics during the course of his ads, like this sample.
Leisure parlayed Joe Isuzu into a gig on the sitcom, Empty Nest, and even revived Joe Isuzu near the end of the 20th century.
It wouldn't surprise me at all if President Trump doesn't remember Joe.
