Jake Tapper just humiliated Trump with devastating fact check in real time

Jake Tapper just humiliated Trump with devastating fact check in real time

President Trump’s a pathological liar.  That’s not an aspersion or an opinion.  That’s a demonstrable fact.  And he doesn’t just lie the way all politicians lie, by making promises to voters he has no intention of keeping, or breaking promises when it’s politically convenient or denying embarrassing accusations when he’s caught red-handed – although he does all of that, too.

No, this president lies about literally everything, large or small, trivial or monumental.  He lies about the number of floors in his buildings because he thinks it will help sell condos.  He’s called reporters under made-up identities to lie about one story or another.  Now as president, he’s dragooned his staff and sycophants in the right-wing media into lying for him, too.

His supporters have so far given Trump a pass for his fast and loose relationship with the truth because those lies have come at the expense of Democrats, or the media, or his critics of all shapes and political stripes.  So what if he lies to them, they must reason, as long as he’s advancing their MAGA agenda?

All fine and good, we suppose, but what happens when the president starts lying to them? What will Trump supporters do when they’re presented with smoking gun evidence that their president lied to their faces, and did so in public for all to see, demonstrating once and for all how little respect he actually has for them.

We’re about to find out.  CNN’s Jake Tapper just connected two tweets the president made, one today, one on Wednesday, that completely exposes how rampant his lying has truly become.

First, the tweet from three days ago:

“HOUSE REPUBLICANS SHOULD PASS THE STRONG BUT FAIR IMMIGRATION BILL, KNOWN AS GOODLATTE II, IN THEIR AFTERNOON VOTE TODAY, EVEN THOUGH THE DEMS WON’T LET IT PASS IN THE SENATE,” he wrote in all caps for some reason.  “PASSAGE WILL SHOW THAT WE WANT STRONG BORDERS & SECURITY WHILE THE DEMS WANT OPEN BORDERS = CRIME. WIN!”

And now, the tweet from this afternoon:

“I never pushed the Republicans in the House to vote for the Immigration Bill, either GOODLATTE 1 or 2,” he wrote, “because it could never have gotten enough Democrats as long as there is the 60 vote threshold. I released many prior to the vote knowing we need more Republicans to win in Nov.”

Trump supporters are now officially that one friend we all have that’s in a relationship with a cheating dog that we warned them not to get into.  And now that they’ve been shown photos of their significant other actively cheating on them in real-time, they’re probably going to rationalize it rather than admit they were wrong because of what it might say about them.

Sadly, the president knows this, and that’s why he’ll continue to get away with it.
