Donald Trump Told a Really F**ked Up Lie About President Obama Today

In the grand scheme of things, this is not healthcare, it’s not tax reform, it’s not an assault on the rights of women, POC, or the LBGTQ community, but it still matters. It still matters when the President lies, and it still matters when he tries to make his predecessor look like the lazy, unfeeling, unsympathetic jackass that Donald Trump is himself.

To wit: President Trump has made no public mention of four special-forces soldiers killed in Niger 12 days ago. That matters. He was finally called on it today during a press conference, and here’s the answer he gave:

Listen: That’s a really shitty thing to say. It’s also a lie, and an appalling one, at that:

Trump was called on that lie in real time at the press conference, and sort of backtracked.

And then he lied again, and said that generals told him that lie.

That’s a fucked-up lie. It’s double fucked-up that he would lay the blame for that lie on his own military leaders.

What the hell is wrong with this man?
