Donald Trump Calls Bush’s Release of 113 Prisoners a ‘Terrible Decision’ by Obama

As part of his daily Twitter rant, Donald Trump tweeted a huge lie about President Obama and Guantanamo detainees, apparently again motivated by a story on Fox & Friends this morning:

Never mind that it’s a complete fabrication:

That’s right: just 9 of the detainees that Trump blames President Obama for this morning were actually released by Obama. And yes, Donald Trump does seem to suffer from a pathological inability to tell the truth.

However, for Trump, it’s a win. It’s a distraction from the very real problems in his administration and it pushes the right buttons among his supporters, who will be repeating the lie all day long.
