Lying clearly runs in Donald Trump’s family, even those who are not blood-related to America’s disgraceful Commander in Chief.
Trump has been lying through his teeth claiming that he didn’t insult the pregnant widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, a soldier who was killed during an ISIS ambush in Niger. To help defend his “innocence”, Trump has been getting everyone in his administration – and his own family – to lie on his behalf. One of those people is Lara Trump, Trump’s daughter-in-law. In an interview with Fox News, Lara stated that she read a transcript of the call as she defended her father-in-law from the claim that he’d said Johnson “knew what he signed up for”, which Trump had denied:
“From what I have seen, this is a clear case of the media not doing their job. Whenever you read exactly what he said, he said your husband went into battle, you know, knowing that he could be injured, knowing that he could be killed and he still did it because he loves his country and he did it for the American people.”
“I can’t think of a better way, quite frankly, to express my gratitude than by saying something like that. Then they leave off the last part of what was said. This man is a hero. There are no two ways about it, my father-in-law is the biggest champion of the military there is. We all in this country love and respect and respect our military and no one more so than the president.”
You can watch Lara lie though her teeth below, at around the 1:10 mark:

Here’s the thing – after that interview aired, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was questioned about Lara’s claim and clearly stated that there is no such transcript of Trump’s phone call with Johnson’s wife. Sanders has also previously stated that there is no recording of the call, period. Sanders said:
“There’s not a transcript of the call. I believe she was responding to reports and things she read. I haven’t spoken directly to her. I refer you to the campaign that handles her press inquiries.”

Wow. It should be noted that Lara does not work in the White House. Even though she does work for Trump’s re-election campaign, it would be extremely odd for her to have read a transcript of such a call, if it existed. Can Trump and his family get any more dishonest?!
