Do you remember when he accused president Obama of skipping too many intelligence briefings?

Me too. And yet….

“Trump told Chris Wallace today, ‘I don’t have to be told the same thing in the same words every single day for the next eight years… I don’t need that. But I do say if something should change, let us know.”’

Someone should tell Mr trump that the world is always changing, and that he will need to be updated “every single day”,while he happens to be the leader of the (so called) free part of that world. (I am not sure about the next eight years part,though.) Anyway, I hope that these words don’t come back to haunt him when we are faced with terror under his watch.

Then there is his lying. Carl Bernstein, a man who, thanks to Watergate, knows a thing or two about lying American presidents, had this to say:

“Trump lives and thrives in a fact-free environment. No president, including Richard Nixon, has been so ignorant of fact and disdains fact in the way that this president-elect does.”

He linked this to a “growing sense of authoritarianism” from Trump and his campaign, but Jeff Lord shot back by bringing up liberal bias in fact-checking and pointing to Hillary Clinton initially blaming Benghazi on a video.

Yes, trump has indeed broken every fact-checking machine known to man. At this point you can’t even fact check him anymore, because damn near everything he says is a lie.

If you don’t believe me check out the following quotes:

“I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down. And I watched in Jersey City, New Jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down. Thousands of people were cheering.”

“(Obama) doesn’t have a birth certificate. He may have one, but there’s something on that, maybe religion, maybe it says he is a Muslim. I don’t know. Maybe he doesn’t want that.”

“An ‘extremely credible source’ has called my office and told me that @BarackObama’s birth certificate is a fraud.”
