According to Meriam Webster, Lance even lied about the definition of the word cheat:

THAT'S NOT THE DEFINITION OF CHEAT. IT'S:
to practice fraud or trickery

Someone using Lance to get $$$ is kinda ironic

Well worth reading Bonnie Ford's article.

Ever notice that every time he uses the word "absolutely" to preface a statement...that he's lying?

Truth.

Truth.
Or use weasel words, or florid analogies,

Compensates for inability to engage with plain speaking with turgid answers

Plain speaking = truth

All other turgid response is orwellian

Been a while between posts for me, but as a general take on it, I'd say Lance's commitment to tell only the truth stopped at the end of the "yes or no" Q&A. Saying he didn't dope in the comeback, calling CVV a liar, the "they asked so I gave" excuse, his refusal to actually apologise and accept liability for his wrongdoings towards individuals - they were all examples of him simply trying to control the narrative rather than actually confront what he'd done. The problem is that the bulk of the interview was him dodging the question and not looking remorseful at all.

Tears will come in 2.0, but they're crocodile tears based on what we've seen. Far too many lies, and no willingness to confront his misdeeds.

Kudos at least to Oprah for bothering to pursue the line of questioning through Emma, Betsy et al - I honestly didn't think she'd do that.
