In an extraordinary work of journalism, today’s New York Times published the complete list of President Trump’s lies after he barged into the Oval Office, ending – so far – on June 21. Each is dated with the correction of his words. His boasts were demolished with evidence that he credited himself with good works that began in the Obama administration. Or that he had been wiretapped by Obama. Or the various other ways that he managed to offend our allies. Or saving public money with programs already in place before he got to Washington.
The list starts on January 21st:
“I wasn’t a fan of Iraq. I didn’t want to go into Iraq.” (He was for an invasion before he was against it.)
And ends on June 21st:
“Right now, we are one of the highest-taxed nations in the world.” (We’re not.)
You can find the entire rap sheet online and it is a fascinating account of how a deranged president manages to fool some of the people – all of the time. Clip and save. There will be more. Unfortunately for America.
