Michael Flynn, who briefly served as national security adviser in the Trump administration until he was given the boot for lying to Vice President Mike Pence about his unreported contacts with Russia, is now claiming that the COVID-19 pandemic was cooked up in order to divert attention from the 2020 election which his former boss lost in a landslide to President Joe Biden.
During an appearance on a podcast, Flynn (who admitted to lying to the FBI), commented, according to The Independent:
That is his “truth”? Why should we believe a man who traffics in lies and conspiracy theories, including the debunked QAnon bullshit about Satanic pedophiles being in control of governments across the globe? Flynn wouldn’t know what the truth is if it walked up to him and began pissing on his leg. He’d probably claim it was raining and try to put the blame on former President Barack Obama, who also fired Flynn from his post as Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, “largely because of mismanagement and temperament issues,” NBC News reported in 2017.
Flynn’s comments are also a slap in the face of friends and family of the 590,000 Americans who have died as a result of COVID-19.
It’s been said but needs to be repeated: Liars cannot be trusted. In many ways, a liar is the lowest of life forms because they deliberately mislead people, and that can result in terrible consequences.
Michael Flynn is a disgrace to the uniform he once wore and should be serving time for any number of charges. Instead, he was pardoned by Donald Trump, who also loves to lie. Both of them deserve to be relegated to the dustbin of history.
