    Trump's Distortions Are Across The Board

    Trump's lies vs facts and reality.

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump systematically fabricated his record before boisterous supporters and the eyes of the world this past week.

    To a core question — did the U.S. killing of an Iranian general avoid an imminent attack on U.S. interests? — there is no definitive answer days after missiles flew. Trump and his officials said the U.S. attack achieved that result but have yet to prove it.

    In other matters, Trump offered distortion acrossthe breadth of public policy. He declared clean-air achievements when the air has become dirtier. He claimed to have come up with the “great idea” of letting veterans seek private care at public expense, when that was already law, accomplished by President Barack Obama.

    He complained that he didn’t get the Nobel Peace Prize for peace in Ethiopia, when he had little to nothing to do with it.

    He invented a dialogue with a Democrat in Congress and claimed he succeeded on two fronts where other presidents failed, each time for at least 44 years, a made-up number.
    And as he done repeatedly, but this time in the midst of dangerous brinkmanship with Iran, he falsely accused Obama of opening the U.S. treasury to Tehran and handing over a fortune.

    In future years, current Republicans are going to be doing a lot of squirming trying to explain why they supported that.

    And this is what the right is so smug in supporting, amazing.

    I remember when neither W or Cheney attended their national convention, that's how toxic they had become to republicans.

    Once trump is gone every republican who ever voted for him will be telling their children, I didn't vote for him.

    Trump supporters are the tea party and the freedom caucus gone wild.

    Great short, concise truthful post
    When the debate is lost, the loser resorts to slander.

    No. They'll say they never did like him, just his policies. Not all of them. Just the tax cuts and judges. Not the nastiness, not alienating our allies or embracing despots, or calling people names, or lying all the time, or breaking treaties or.....

    No, they won't. They just won't talk about it any more than they talk about all the bad things they supported Bush doing.
