White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham, appearing on Fox News’ Fox & Friends program on Monday morning, suggested that media reports about the spread of coronavirus and criticism from Democrats over the administration’s response so far to the disease are nothing more than scare tactics meant to help them politically.
Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski couldn’t believe Donald Trump’s false claims made yesterday — and many times before — that his father Fred was born in Germany. In fact Fred Trump was born in the Bronx, in New York City, in 1905.
When it became public this week that Donald Trump ordered that Jared Kushner be given the highest national security clearance it was devastating for both the president and his son in law in more ways than one.
Former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe dropped a major bombshell today when he claimed that the FBI told a bipartisan group of lawmakers in 2017 that it had opened an investigation into President Donald Trump — and none of the Republicans in the group objected.
During his State of the Union (SOTU) Address Donald Trump once again laid claim to being the biggest liar in the history of the U.S. presidency. This is true even though he read the speech, which had been prepared in advance.
One of America’s most accomplished and highly-respected former generals said yesterday that President Donald Trump is “immoral” and he wouldn’t take a job in the Trump administration.
Nearly two-thirds of American voters surveyed say that President Donald Trump “has not been truthful” about the investigation into Russian 2016 election interference and a possible conspiracy between his campaign and Russia.
Donald Trump said on Tuesday that much of the border wall he wants has already been built and has been “very effective.” But that is not true.
He apparently was referring to old border fencing built decades ago. And nothing he’s done has been “very effective.”
The evidence is now clear that Donald Trump has lost whatever mental capacities he had. It is no longer correct to say he is “losing it” because he has already “lost it.”
The evidence came out when he told reporters that he has already shut down the border with Mexico. He also said that he signed an order closing the border.
The 2018 midterm elections have turned into a referendum on President Donald Trump. He has made sure of that by holding dozens of campaign rallies all over the country.
But the elections will also be a referendum on his brazen campaign strategy, where he has taken lying to an entirely new level.
During the first 649 days of his presidency Donald Trump has told 6,420 lies, according to the Washington Post Fact Checker.
And perhaps in a sign of his increasing desperation, over the past seven weeks of campaigning for the midterms his rate of lying has increased dramatically.
A Washington Post/ABC News poll released last week found Americans trust Democrats more on health care than Republicans by a 53-35 percent margin.
Still, President Donald Trump on Wednesday claimed that Democrats are putting patients with pre-existing conditions in danger. He said that Republicans will protect them, it what can best be described as a blatant lie. In fact the president’s words directly contradict the actions of his own administration, which has worked diligently in attempting to completely dismantle Obamacare.
In addition to telling thousands of lies, Donald Trump has become the master of the false promise. When he unexpectedly told reporters over the weekend that middle-income Americans would receive a 10 percent tax cut before the midterm elections, it caught everyone off guard. But immediately the bureaucratic machinery of the Trump administration leaped into action. They were trying to come up with an actual policy that could support Trump’s whimsical idea of a new tax cut, which had no basis in reality.
Trump has invented a new excuse to blame Democrats for his policy of child separation, and that involves falsely claiming that Congress needs to authorize family detainment.
Donald Trump clearly isn’t getting enough sleep. On Tuesday his tweets started shortly after 3 a.m. and they show that the president is losing his grip on reality.
His outrageous tweets constitute a renewed effort on his part to taint the Russia investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller, and to accuse Democrats and the Obama administration of spying on his campaign.
President Donald Trump was in rare Twitter form on Friday morning as he launched into several unhinged attacks against Democrats, accusing the opposition party of rooting against him on North Korea. His tweets as usual show that he is extremely sensitive to criticism and prefers to blame others for his failures and defeats.
The question likely isn't whether Trump will lie under oath during his interview with Robert Mueller. Instead, it's how many lies will the president tell.
