A former White House official recently revealed to Politico that among President Trump's innumerable fixations and obsessions was a repeated desire to give his own staff lie detector tests to see who was loyal.


People everywhere are chortling at the irony of President Trump questioning someone ELSE's honesty.

In the light of near-constant leaks to the press, the unnamed official painted the picture of an unhinged President:

"It was something that was discussed and people were trying to placate the president and trying to show that they were taking it as personally and just as seriously as he was."
"Taking that line of, 'Oh yeah, we have to polygraph people' was a way to ingratiate themselves with him, but it wasn't an idea that ever went anywhere because it was absurd."

Twitter got a huge kick out of President Trump interacting with a lie detector.



If Trump ever tried taking a lie detector test, the machine would likely do backflips.


This entire situation is the exact definition of irony.



Maybe everyone in the White House SHOULD take a lie detector.



With more lies coming out of the White House every day, President Trump is right. It's time to hold the liars accountable—even the one at the very top.

Having a President who lies continuously about easily disproved things is a new phenomenon. The book Disordered Minds: How Dangerous Personalities Are Destroying Democracy is available here.
