Lying blatantly is of course nothing uncommon to Carlos Salinas, for those who recall his Dec 88-Dec 94 sexenio and dramatic aftermath. Yet to blatantly deny words that numerous journalists just heard you saying?
Salinas now totally denies that he ever suggested/challenged/offered in any way to hold a debate with AMLO ("He is going to lose," Salinas said just days ago). AMLO, to recall, for his part only ingenuously "accepted" the challenge if all the 30 members of the mafia and Enrique Peña Nieto as well joined for the debate. Yet now Salinas denies ever having said what he said. What cowardice, from both.
