Jerry Brown Quotes

Look at all the guilty pleas and contradictions from there. The White House is full of liars.

 
Context
There was a political dispute about Sanctuary Cities. Governor Brown was furious with this accusation which was made briefly by the White House and the Attorney General but then repeated millions of times on the right wing, conservative talk shows, and social media. He challanged the President and the Attorney General to name a single case where California or its law enforcement officers had broken the Federal Laws regarding immigration. The reference to the White House referred to the fact that a number of Trump appointees and What House staffers, had already pled guilty to lying to law enforecement officers, and it was an almost daily occurance for Trump staffers and/or the President himself to contradict others and in the previous week, the President's longest serving assistant Hope Hicks resigned admitting that she was required to tell "white lies" on many occasions. The largest problem was that President Trump had a total disregard for facts, accuracy and truth, and his staff, trying to serve their President, was constantly caught trying to cover for him or refusing to contradict him even when he was totally in error.
