There’s no way I’m ever going to run out of these. Daniel Dale, with the Washington bureau of The Toronto Star, compiled a list of 80 fabrications by Donald Trump, all during the first four weeks of the new administration. That was so many days ago, and we have ceased expecting any truth from our president. It’s near pointless to continue putting Donald Trump’s lies on display. However, forge ahead I must. History is waiting. Here is number 61:
61. Feb. 16, 2017 — White House “listening session” with members of Congress
The claim: “Will anybody show up to that press conference? Historically, they didn’t care about these things. For me, they show up.”
In fact: Obviously, journalists have always cared about presidential press conferences.
Daniel Dale’s list has since grown. As of 18 April the count was up to 179. How long can our president keep this up? Better yet, how long can I keep this up?
Until there is no skin left.
