Oh boy. Lots of US presidents have lied about lots of things, but Trump is the first congenital serial liar in office. If he told you the sky is blue, you’d have to step outside to check. The man has the self-awareness of a toddler, and the veracity of a carnival huckster.
Anything to deflect attention from his collusion with his BFF Vladimir Putin. The only faker here is Trump himself, but his demented base love to suck his balls. And he does love having them sucked.
