President Donald Trump is hurting for "the fabric of American society" by delivering a continuous stream of lies and continually blasting at the media, Sen. Bernie Sanders has charged.
"There has never been a president, or even a leading public official, who has lied as often or as dangerously as Trump has," said Sanders, a Vermont independent who lost his bid for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination to Hillary Clinton, in an interview with Vox.com.
"And when the president of the United States lies a whole lot and makes outrageous statements, it's not only bad unto itself, but it also opens the door for other people to be lying and for truth to be disrespected. And that is a very dangerous thing for the fabric of American society."
Sanders added while all politicians have beefs with the media, "there has never been a president, or political leader, who has basically said, 'Everything you see on mainstream television or mainstream media — The New York Times, The Washington Post, Vox, whatever it may be — is a lie, don’t believe it.'"
"If you take that to its logical conclusion, and some people have, then where do you get the truth? Where do you learn about what’s going on that you can’t see with your own eyes? Who’s going to help you? It kind of leads you to the conclusion that there is only one person in America who can tell us the truth, and that is the president of the United States," he said.
