Trump Spokeswoman Denies Everything (But No One Believes Her)

Liz Harrington, serving as spokesperson for Donald Trump, is frantically denying excerpts from two new books published about her employer’s presidency. Nobody’s really buying it though.

People close to Donald Trump have said that lying is a way of life for him. The public record definitely shows that denying facts reported about him is, if not a way of life, at least the way of politics for the ex-president. We could talk about him denying that he knows people he’s been photographed socializing with, denying that he said things that he’s on video saying, or, the most obvious Big Lie, denying that he lost the election.

It doesn’t seem to matter how much evidence there is for whatever behavior or incident Trump is currently denying.

That’s probably why when reporters spilled on stories like Trump praising Hitler, wanting to pardon himself, and more, and Harrington denied them on Trump’s behalf, no one was really convinced.

Here’s one example. Michael Wolff’s new book, Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency includes a story of Jared Kushner talking Trump out of a self-pardon. Harrington shared the Daily Mail‘s report of this, declaring it “fake news” that “never happened.”

Of course, it’s not entirely clear whether she’s denying that Trump sought to pardon himself, or that Kushner talked him out of it. However, there’s evidence that Trump considered it — not only did he tweet that he had the right to do so, we still have the screenshot of him retweeting Matt Gaetz calling for not only a self-pardon but a pardon of the entire administration.

But we’re to believe Trump wasn’t considering pardoning himself?

Then there’s this story. Harrington tweeted a Business Insider link about Wolff’s book reporting that he’s been asking around Mar-A-Lago for new legal representation. She gave a blanket denial of “all these stories” from the book, and said that if Wolff had asked Trump, he would have refuted them before publication.

The most recent denial (at the time of writing) is for “the report from the Michael Bender book.” Harrington isn’t specific, but she likely means the report Bender included in his Frankly We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story Of How Trump Lost about the then-president praising Hitler. This, she claims, was “probably made up by an incompetent general who was fired.”

Still, she’s not really convincing anyone — here’s a small sampling of responses.

As you can see, a denial by Trump, even through a spokesperson, actually serves as a full-fledged confirmation for a lot of folks.
