Erica Thomas has no OFF switch.
A lot of folks, myself included, compared Erica Thomas — the latest Hoax Crime perpetrator — to Jussie Smollett. But I’m beginning to rethink that comparison.
At this point, Erica has more in common with that drum-banging asshole and phony Vietnam vet Nathan Phillips.
She’s making all the same mistakes Phillips made – namely she just can’t shut the hell up.
The more Erica Thomas shoves her face into the spotlight, the more lies she’s forced to tell.
This is exactly what Nathan Phillips did. He started out with one simple narrative. But because he kept giving interviews, he couldn’t resist piling lie upon lie. By the end of his fifteen minutes, Phillips was playing armchair psychiatrist and mind-reader. He told NBC News that Nick Sandman and his Covington classmates “were brought up to believe I’m less than human.”
Once he got going, Phillips couldn’t resist the temptation to double and triple-down.
Congenital liars have no OFF switch. They are never satisfied with simply sticking to the original lie. No. They always have to embellish by piling lies on top of lies until the whole thing comes tumbling down around them.
