"No Angels"

In Defying the Odds, we discuss Trump's dishonesty .     The update  -- recently published --includes a chapter on the 2018 midterms. Impeachment is becoming likely.

Today Trump tried to justify his betrayal of the Kurds:  "The Kurds are very well protected; plus, they know how to fight.  And, by the way, they’re no angels, but they were with us.  They are no angels."

He has said that others are "no angels."

  • Senate Democrats who criticized Brett Kavanaugh: ""I watched those senators on the Democrat side, and I thought it was a disgrace. And partially because I know them. I know them too well, and you know what, they are not angels."
  • The wrongly-convicted Central Park Five: "Speak to the detectives on the case and try listening to the facts. These young men do not exactly have the pasts of angels."
  • Migrants: ""These are tough people.  These are not angels.  These are not little angels."
