To Keep My Sanity

To Keep My Sanity... and to keep him off Nincompoopery during the week, I have been tracking our Very Special Genius President's lies each week. Now I don't have to dump on you all, I can just do a week-end dump.  I'm happy and you can ignore it.


Date Trump Truth
25-Aug News Conference: Does not believe the Climate Report set up by his government. Report lists what has happened and the best scientists projections of what will happen.
25-Aug Per Tweet: He follows the same child separation that Obama and George W Bush did. Lie. Obama and Bush did not follow this policy of separating children from parents.
25-Aug Per Tweet: "Clinton Foundation donations drop 42% - which shows that they illegally played the power game." Lie. It shows that Fox News and Republicans have made a model of helping the poor toxic through association.
25-Aug Per Tweet: Europe isn't paying their fair share for Military Protection Lie (or Stupidity): Europe does not pay into NATO. They commit their forces. It is true that they have not hit their own targets for spending, but that doesn't make this lie true.
26-Aug News Conference: Trump claims Border Patrol officers were hurt in San Ysidro Not true. Immigrants were tear-gassed, no border patrol agents injured.
26-Aug Per Tweet: Suggests that the Untied States start a television network to complete with CNN and "tell the truth". CNN does not lie, just disagrees with the President
26-Aug There were very bad hombres crossing at San Ysidro and they used children as human shields during the tear gas attacks from the US. No proof on the "bad hombres" or "ISIS" in the 6 weeks of the caravan talk. Lie: The children were with parents trying to cross the border, not human shields.
26-Aug Twitter: "The Muller With Hunt is a total disgrace…" (what about Podesta's E-mails?) Results so far - 6 guilty pleas plus 2 convictions and 26 indictments; so NOT a witch hunt
27-Aug Twitter: "The Muller With Hunt is a total disgrace…" (re Hillary E-Mails) Results so far - 6 guilty pleas plus 2 convictions and 26 indictments; so NOT a witch hunt
27-Aug Twitter: "The Muller With Hunt is a total disgrace…" cost taxpayers $30 Million Results so far - 6 guilty pleas plus 2 convictions and 26 indictments; so NOT a witch hunt. Second lie: Manafort deal alone netted $33 - 46 Billion, so that pays for the entire investigation.
28-Aug Twitter: Muller's team which hunt trying to get people to lie. Results so far - 6 guilty pleas plus 2 convictions and 26 indictments; so NOT a witch hunt. 
28-Aug Twitter: "Brenda Snipes, in charge of voting in Broward County, Florida, was just spotted wearing a beautiful dress with 300 I VOTED signs on it. Just kidding, she is a fine, very honorable and highly respected voting tactician!" This is an attack on the integrity of voting as well as an attack on a black woman whom he doesn't like after she has retired from a public job (although, there are no black women he does like). Just because he is a troll. Not so dignified for the President of the USA.
28-Aug News Conference: No reasons to take Manafort Pardon off the table Lie: There is a reason (for a non-crook) and it is that he lied AFTER taking a plea deal. This should be clear to the President as leader of the Judiciary.
29-Aug Witch Hunt Twitter Posts about "nothing" being found. Results so far - 6 guilty pleas plus 2 convictions and 26 indictments; so NOT a witch hunt
29-Aug Twitter: "The Muller With Hunt is a total disgrace…" costs are $40 Million Wait - Just two days ago the costs were $30 Million., Now they are $40 Million? Keep your lies straight.Also, Manafort deal alone netted 33 - 46 Billion, so that pays for the entire investigation.
30-Aug Twitter: "Oh, I get it! I am a very good developer, happily living my life, when I see our Country going in the wrong direction (to put it mildly). Against all odds, I decide to run for President & continue to run my business-very legal & very cool, talked about it on the campaign trail...Lightly looked at doing a building somewhere in Russia. Put up zero money, zero guarantees and didn’t do the project. Witch Hunt! This is a new line the President came up with AFTER the Michael Cohen plea deal. As we all remember from 2016, 2017 and 2018 the previous line was that "No one in my campaign or company had any dealings with Moscow." Now it is "so what". His lies are catching up with him (but no one will care).
30-Aug Twitter: "“This demonstrates the Robert Mueller and his partisans have no evidence, not a whiff of collusion, between Trump and the Russians. Russian project legal. Trump Tower meeting (son Don), perfectly legal. He wasn’t involved with hacking.” Gregg Jarrett. A total Witch Hunt!"  Lying to Congress: Donald Trump J. about the Russian meeting in Trump tower. Conspiracy of lying to Congress: Donald Trump who wrote the original memo that was untrue for his son ,and then later lying to the American people about that letter.
30-Aug Twitter: "Just signed one of the most important, and largest, Trade Deals in U.S. and World History. The United States, Mexico and Canada worked so well together in crafting this great document. The terrible NAFTA will soon be gone. The USMCA will be fantastic for all!" He is obsessed with size! Lie: WTO, Bretton Woods, Europe Union were all bigger. NAFTA was the same size. The new NAFTA is just the old NAFTA with some car changes (and GM just closed 5 plants) and lots of platitudes to make Donnie happy. And our name now comes first!
