Do you trust the White House to tell the truth?

President Trump's White House has a loose relationship with the truth; multiple senior officials have been busted for lying. Most recently, former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn resigned after it was reported he lied about the nature of his conversations with the Russian ambassador. Critics of the White House say the administration has lost all credibility. But supporters say it's actually the media that's engaging in a campaign of dishonesty. What do you think? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The Associated Press released a report saying the Trump administration is considering using the National Guard to round up undocumented immigrants in certain border states. Initially, the White House and Department of Homeland Security did not reply to the request for comment, but after publication, the White House responded with:

"There is no effort to do what is potentially suggested," he said. Spicer called the AP report "100 percent not true, adding that there was "no effort at all to utilize the National Guard to round up unauthorized immigrants."A DHS official described the document as a very early draft that was not seriously considered and never brought to the secretary for approval.

The AP then released the memo Spicer claims is not from the White House. It's like the boy who cried wolf. If everything is fake news by default, how will the public ever know what is truly fake?

This incident raises a scary question: If something bad does happen and the White House needs to tell us about it, would anyone believe them?
