Even though the Trump administration has spent years lying to the American public, television pundits assert there is no reason to doubt the administration’s claims about Iran and the assassination of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani.
No matter which way you slice it, Trump and his administration routinely lie about the facts. And before Trump took office, the Iraq War and the Afghanistan War were sold to the American people based on lies. (You can go further back if you wish, I won’t stop you.)
And yet, despite all the lies, pundits on cable news repeatedly said today that they have no reason to doubt what Trump administration officials are saying regarding Soleimani’s assassination. None of these people provided any evidence to support their claims.
At least Charlie Brown occasionally showed some awareness that Lucy would pull the football away.
