Trump Lie # 8,756: The Trump Shutdown
Trump recently said on live TV that he would be “Proud to shut down the Government and he would not Blame the Democrats”
Of course we all knew what would actually happen, and we knew it as the words were coming out of his mouth, Trump IS blaming the Democrats for the Trump Shutdown.
Trump Lie # 8.757: General Mattis
General Mattis gave Donald Trump his resignation letter. The Department of Defense announced the resignation. Trump followed that announcement by saying that General Mattis was “resigning with distinction”. Now Trump is saying that he fired Mattis.
Trump Lie # 8,758: The Stock Market
We were all probably trying to figure out how Trump was going to spin the fact that the stock markets all finished down in 2018.
I was surprised when Trump actually admitted that the markets had finished down for the year, but then in true Trump style, Trump had to add lie #8,758 when he said that the stock markets are still up 30% since he took office.
- Dow Jones 1/19/2017: 19,824
- Dow Jones 1/03/2019: 22,686
- Dow Jones Growth: 2,862 or 14.4% NOT 30%
TRUMP HAS NEVER LET ACTUAL FACTS GET IN THE WAY OF A GOOD TRUMP LIE!!!
Obviously, Trump did not make a New Years Resolution to stop Lying.
