Reported by The Guardian: ‘Truth isn’t truth’: Giuliani trumps ‘alternative facts’ with new Orwellian outburst
When the definitive history of Donald Trump’s presidency comes to be written, many years hence, 11.02am on Sunday 19 August 2018 will surely be granted a special mention.
It was the moment when the phrase was coined that might be said to sum up the spirit of the Trump era: “Truth isn’t truth.”
The punch line:
Giuliani said: “When you tell me [Trump] should testify because he’s going to tell the truth so he shouldn’t worry, well that’s so silly because it’s somebody’s version of the truth, not the truth.” … And then it came, like manna from heaven, the glorious mantra for which Trump’s White House has been waiting so long.
“No, it isn’t truth!” Giuliani roared. “Truth isn’t truth.”
