The Media and politics: John Oliver on Trump and the truth: 'a pathological liar'

John Oliver has criticized reality TV star turned president Donald Trump’s rhetoric, calling him “a pathological liar”.


He showed footage of Trump claiming that his inauguration was rain-free, thanks to God’s intervention, and compared it to actual video from the day. “We have a president capable of standing in the rain and saying it was a sunny day,” he said.

Oliver went on to explain that this worryingly comfortable relationship with deception could wreak havoc on the country. “Trump’s relationship with the truth is going to be of profound importance going forward because any policy discussion has to begin with a shared sense of reality and Trump’s reality can change within a single sentence,” he said.
