Former Presidents?

Donald Trump claimed that “all” the former presidents knew that they should have built a border wall, and that “Some of them have told me that we should have done it.” But all the living ex-presidents have denied even talking to Trump about the wall.

So which presidents is Trump talking about? Here’s a good guess:

Incidentally, I linked the Trump quote to an article in People magazine with the title “President Trump Was Lying When He Said the Former Presidents Agreed About Building a Border Wall.” Who ever thought we’d see People magazine calling any president a liar?

    When I saw the names of the Presidents, I wondered how he knew the names. You explained it. While he was out screwing people littererly and figuratively he learned nothing about this country like Presidents’ names.

    (And Google please give us back spell check, when they redid the e-mail to make it horrible, they took most spell check. Makes me look like a fool, missing the spelling gene in my DNA)

    To be expected. Trump is a lair, but even worse he is a bull shit artist.

    I realize many, if not all, Presidents through the ages have lied, or in some ways have shaved the truth, both Republican and Democrat. But I can’t think of any President (even Nixon!) who I expect to lie routinely and practically every time he opens his mouth. It’s as natural to him as breathing. It’s even gotten to where I’d be genuinely surprised if he DIDN’T purposely lie, even over some of the most easily fact-checked claims, like the above.

    Last night’s “emergency” address is only the latest example. Not one sentence you could hang your hat on.

    Dave – saw that one. Of course, General Bonespurs claims that was a prototype put up by the “previous Administration”, which by all accounts is just another brick in his wall of lies.

    Here’s the wall he’s really building –

    And here’s a wall that needs reinforcing –

    With any luck, he’ll soon have three cement walls and a steel one to call his own as Mueller wraps up his investigation.

    Funny, but Greg it’s a little to true. But the wall dividing America’s people stated long ago with the Linberger cheese man Lintball. His drugged up lamentations have driving a wedge in America since the nineties, all in the name of power with little reflections of truth.
