Words are tricky, that is to say they can be tricky. You have to listen carefully to what a person is saying.
Aaron Rogers never said he was vaccinated, he said he was immunized.
Tom Brady was asked if he was a cheater, he answered “I don’t believe so.” He did not answer “no.”
President Bill Clinton said “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” If you’re watching and enjoying the mini-series Impeachment as much as I am, then you’ve been reminded that when President Clinton said this, he thought he was telling the truth. That was based on a definition of “sexual relations” he had just been given by the prosecuting attorneys in the Paula Jones sexual harassment case deposition.
But, did they? Did they think they were telling the truth, or did they know they were using specific words to avoid answering a question they knew the answer to would be damaging to them?
As Maya Angelou said, “Remember this because it will happen many times in your life. When people show you who they are the first time, believe them.”
