Imagine your boss lied to your face like this at a company meeting…

What would you think? How would you react? What would it make you think about him? And the company? And your role in it?

Speaking to members of the military during his surprise trip overseas this week, President Trump spoke about the raises they received.

“You haven’t gotten one in more than 10 years — more than 10 years,” he said Wednesday. “And we got you a big one. I got you a big one. I got you a big one.”

He continued:

“They said: ‘You know, we could make it smaller. We could make it 3 percent. We could make it 2 percent. We could make it 4 percent.’ I said: ‘No. Make it 10 percent. Make it more than 10 percent.’ ”

The problem with those statements? They’re not true.

Is it worse that he’s lying to the military? Sure. But set that aside and imagine it was your boss and your friends and the place where you work. How would it make you feel about your boss? And about the next set of things that he asked you to do?
