A day late but not a dollar short. Speaking of dollars, since Trump is a self-described billionaire, shouldn’t he be able to afford a tie clip? Or billions of them? In gold, even? I’d say ditch the scotch tape, there are better ways to hold that tie in place there, bub.
But I digress. It’s been quite a week for Trump Lie Land, so let’s start with the:
- nonexistent terrorist attack in Sweden. In Sweden! Totally made up. Bizarre, even for the Trump. (links to all below).
- Repeated the lie about winning the electoral college in a landslide. He was fact-checked by a reporter, and (this is significant) the Liar-in-Chief backed down. Speaking truth to power is a winning strategy.
- He lied when he said there had been a “smooth rollout of the travel ban” – unless you consider multiple lawsuits blocking his executive order a smooth rollout.
- He continues to lie about the U.S. murder rate, which is at a 45 year low. He says the opposite of that.
