Today In Stoopid: _____ Appointee Lies, Then Lies About Lying

Pete Hoekstra, _____’s newly appointed Ambassador to the Netherlands was confirmed less than two weeks ago and, well, it’s already not that good.

Hoekstra, a former House Intelligence Committee Chairman, was born in the Netherlands—and _____ scored points for that—but that doesn’t help what happens when Hoekstra opens his mouth and _____isms fall out.

In a video clip that's going viral on social media, a Dutch reporter in the US asks Hoekstra why he chose to spread the lie that there are so-called "no-go" zones in the Netherlands, and that cars and politicians are being set on fire there.

Ambassador Hoekstra denied ever saying such a thing and then plays his _____ card by calling the story "fake news":
"That is actually an incorrect statement. Yeah – we would call it fake news. I never said that – no, it's not what I said."
Except that then the reporter shows Hoekstra a video of him saying exactly that:
“The Islamic movement has now gotten to a point where they have put Europe into chaos. Chaos in the Netherlands, there are cars being burned, there are politicians that are being burned, and yes, there are no-go zones in the Netherlands.”
So, Hoekstra clearly said what he said, even though he called it a lie and “fake news” and so when the reporter brings that up again Hoekstra says:
"I didn't call that fake news, I didn't use the words today."
Seriously, he’s trying to lie, on camera, bout something he said just seconds ago, on camera. The reporter looks stunned and says, “No?” and Hoekstra responds.
"I don't think I did.”
And so, the reporter ends the interview with a laugh, but is it really funny? I mean, these _____sters think they can lie, even when the truth is on film in front of their faces, and then lie about the fact that they just lied.

If this mindset wasn't so sickening it would be fascinating. One of my sisters was like this as a kid. She'd lie about you to your face and expect you to believe her. She grew out of that. Too bad you can't say the same for these creeps.

This has been standard Republispeak for years except now people aren't ignoring it, they're calling them liars.

All I can think to say is something that would get bleeped by the mainstream media -- although they would agree with me for saying it.

Professor Chaos said...

They think they can because they keep getting away with it. Largely because the mainstream media has such an aversion to the word "lie." No matter how blatantly these fuckers lie (think inauguration crowd-size, the press will never call them the liars that they are. They may, in some extreme instances, use words like "untrue," but never L-I-E lie.
