Speaking Truth to Lies

Yes it is true. Donald Trump, who says that Hillary Clinton should go to jail because she used a supposedly unsecured email server, is using an unsecured iPhone, and there is evidence that Chinese and Russian spies are listening in on his phone calls.

Even crazier, if you listen to what Trump is saying about his “middle class tax cut”, he contradicts himself one sentence later (in the video below). First he says they will pass such a tax cut before November. Then, when asked about the fact that Congress isn’t even in session until after the November election, he admits that Congress won’t vote on it until after the election. So he isn’t going to pass it before November at all, is he? He isn’t even very good at making stuff up!

On top of that, Trump claims that he is currently working with the Republican leadership on this, but none of them knew anything about it until after Trump started promising it.

There is more about this fictional tax cut starting at 6:10 in Stephen Colbert hilarious monologue on the Late Show. You should watch the whole video, as it is all about Trump’s exploding number of lies, often featuring clips of Trump lying.

UPDATE: On Saturday, Trump tried to justify his decision to hold two campaign events (a campaign rally in Illinois and a speech at an agricultural convention) the same day as a mass shooting killed 11 people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.

And with what happened early today — that horrible, horrible attack in Pittsburgh — I was saying maybe I should cancel both this and that. And then I said to myself, I remember Dick Grasso, a friend of mine, great guy. He headed up the New York Stock Exchange on September 11. And the New York Stock Exchange was open the following day. He said — and what they had to do to open it you wouldn’t believe. We won’t even talk to you about it. But he got that exchange open.

There’s just one problem. Trump made this all up. The NYSE didn’t reopen until Sept 17, the longest amount of time it was shut down since the Great Depression.
