Why does everybody associated with this psychopath lie?

President Trump’s medical team delivered an update on Sunday of his condition, as the president’s personal physician acknowledged delivering an overly rosy of his illness a day earlier. The details of the briefing signaled to some health experts that the president’s condition might be more serious than a mild case of Covid-19.
“I didn’t want to give any information that might steer the course of illness in another direction, and in doing so, you know, it came off that we were trying to hide something, which wasn’t necessarily true,” Dr. Sean P. Conley, the White House physician, said in a briefing with reporters Sunday.
The doctors said that Mr. Trump had a “high fever” on Friday, and that there had been two incidents when his oxygen levels dropped — one on Friday and one on Saturday. They said Mr. Trump received oxygen at the White House on Friday; they were not clear about whether it was administered again on Saturday.
Medical experts said that despite the relatively upbeat tone of the news conference Sunday, the details of his treatment and the fact that his oxygen levels have been dropping showed that the illness has progressed beyond a mild case of Covid-19.
Mr. Trump’s oxygen levels dropped to 93 percent at one point, his doctors said; that is below the 95 percent level that is considered the lower limit of the normal range. Many medical experts consider patients to have severe Covid-19 if their oxygen levels drop below 94 percent.
“This is no longer aspirationally positive,” said Dr. Esther Choo, a professor of emergency medicine at Oregon Health & Science University. “And it’s much more than just an ‘abundance of caution’ kind of thing.”
Dr. Conley said that the president had been given the steroid dexamethasone on Saturday, in addition to remdesivir, an antiviral drug. Dexamethasone has been shown to help patients who are severely ill with Covid-19, but it is typically not used in mild or moderate cases of the disease.
If ever there was a time, to tell the truth, this is it, but this White House cannot even do that right.
I don’t really know what good lying will do if Trump gets significantly worse.
It is not as if they could hide the fact that he died or anything.
Update: In what was clearly an attempt to prove all of the critics wrong, Trump took an impromptu car ride to greet his supporters through hermetically sealed bulletproof glass.
He just willing endangered innocent people in order to feed his small ego.
He will never change.
