He didn't blatantly lie about "Mandela".
He lied by making an exaggerated claim that he was "arrested" when he and the UN ambassador were "stopped and briefly detained".
Meanwhile, this becomes a Republican "talking point" when Trump has been accused of saying:
"Mandela f---ed the whole country up. Now it's a s---hole. F--- Mandela," Cohen claims Trump said. "He was no leader."
Which would be 100% true to form from the blatant racist Trump is - a racist who launched his political career by loudly backing the "birther conspiracy" (with his nasty third wife in full voice)
You need to get a grip on reality @nathan. You're becoming a troll.
I have a perfect grip on reality, more than most it seems.
I’m not a troll. I’m an armchair political scientist, an American worker and an American voter with skin in the game
Yes Trump tells lies. Those are the bad lies.
Yes Biden tells lies. Those are the good lies
Its not a Republican talking point, I followed the Dem Primaries here closely and road-tripped thru a few states before and after Super Tuesday. I thought it was interesting Biden told that wee little fib during the primary campaign, because it goes along with a pattern of lying, plagiarism, embellishments, saying you didn’t say or do things you did, stealing others peoples live stories as your own etc
And politicians are the least trust worthy profession?
One says racist things for 4 years as President. The other enacts racist policies and laws over his 47 year career.
