Yesterday was an illuminating day for followers of the incoming Trump administration. Twice, the team — including the President-elect himself — was caught by journalists engaging in obvious deception.

First, campaign spokesman Jason Miller made this easily-disproven claim:

President-elect Trump has never advocated for any registry or system that tracks individuals based on their religion, and to imply otherwise is completely false.

And it was, predictably, immediately disproven. By reporter after reporter after reporter. Most stories pointed back to this 2015 video where Trump himself endorses exactly this idea.

Later, we had the candidate himself inventing a major victory in which he kept Ford’s from closing a Kentucky plant and sending those jobs to Mexico:

Only problem is, that plant was never going to Mexico, which the company and media were quick to point out. Ford last year announced it was shifting production of one Lincoln model away from the plant, but would replace it with work on the Escape, resulting in no net job loss. And the plant was never slated for closure.

It seems you can’t trust a Trump spokesperson to tell the truth, and you can’t trust Trump to tell the Truth. But that’s what you get with this team. Literally. They admitted it yesterday.

In talks with Japan’s Prime Minister, Trump representatives said not to take what they said “literally.”

I don’t even know where you go from here.
