And he didn't say yes, he didn't specifically deny the word loyalty and I think both were quite deliberate choices. LOL- the "other thing". WTF was that?

You get asked questions. And if you use weasel words, they try to pin you down. And if your answers don't square up with known facts, it's perjury. And Trump is incapable of telling the truth.
