Metastasis (me-tas’-ta-sis): Denying and turning back on your adversaries arguments used against you.
You say I lied about colluding with my dentist. Well, let me tell you: you wouldn’t have these ideas unless you had something to do with it. That goes for the Russians too!! You’re the one who’s done the colluding & that’s a fact. Just ask Putin–he’ll tell the truth.
Remember: I’m the President and Presidents don’t lie.
