Trump claimed that he has done "more for the Black community than anybody with the possible exception of Abraham Lincoln, whether you like it or not." When Swan asked him specifically if he thinks he did "more than Lyndon Johnson, who passed the Civil Rights Act," Trump said yes. (We give Trump wide latitude to express opinions, but this one is ridiculous. Lincoln, who emancipated the slaves and won the Civil War, is a certain exception, not a possible exception; Johnson's monumental Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act clearly dwarfed the impact of any of Trump's policies.)

Of course, this is CNN, which obviously has a grudge against the President. But the facts are still the facts.

Jonathan Swan reveals the simple secret to exposing Trump's lies: basic follow-up questions


The article goes on for far too long when you remember that he's interviewing the President, not a failed real estate salesman or reality TV host.

Here's an example of the various lies our President told:

The Portland courthouse: Trump claimed that the federal courthouse in Portland, which has endured damage from some of the protesters in the city, is a "$600 million building." (The courthouse cost a reported $129 million to build in the 1990s; even with inflation, that is roughly $200 million in today's dollars. Trump claimed last week that it was a "billion-dollar building.")

Another example of pandering to A) the existing base, and B) an ever-shrinking population.  >60% of Americans go to services a few times per year or less.  Supporting religious organizations while people lose their homes and get evicted won't help (unless all of those people start sleeping and eating inside the walls of the church).

Trump would run a $20 Trillion deficit if he could think who to give all that money to in order to get re-elected.  Why fundraise when you can just print and give away money?

It doesn't matter.  He is immune to facts.  I haven't seen the episode, but Axios interviewed him, and the bit I did see had him literally ignoring facts on paper in his hands to perpetuate the spin.

It was downright amusing to hear him talk about vaccines today.  We are going to be a few days away from a vaccine for the next 3 months. 

 

I would dearly love to see Trump bluntly and openly contradicted and confronted by other people. Put it on TV. Make that festering sore of a human being squirm and try to defend himself without handlers. 

Trump at his BEST is utterly f#^&ing useless. 

"It was downright amusing to hear him talk about vaccines today. We are going to be a few days away from a vaccine for the next 3 months."

What about that brand-new healthcare plan he promised to roll out in two weeks? His two weeks were up today.   

And this nightmare of a human being is our president. Jesus wept.

Has to be an extremely low percentage. 
 
I wonder how many of Trump tweets are actually sent by him vs media aide Dan Scavino, or someone else?.  Especially on a day when there are 100++.  Galling that he spends any time at all on this shite.

"More likely, they expect drama at the convention, drama they do not want others to see. It’s possible Trump fears an objection to his renomination, or another such public relations nightmare. The whole point of conventions these days is that they make such good television they launch candidacies with a giant push. And now it appears Trump, a publicity hound if ever there was one, is apparently considering foregoing that hoopla. It’s interesting."
