The following is a good but obviously partial list of mostly policy-oriented fibs of the man at 1600 as of today, rejiggered and edited from the listed source:
Remember when the President said he was going to donate his salary? Well he just accepted his second paycheck.
Remember when he said he was going to divest from his businesses? Changed his mind.
Remember when he said he was going to release his tax returns? Changed his mind.
Remember when he said that nobody on his campaign has had any communications with Russian government? Seven of his people have now admitted they spoke or met with Russian officials during and after the campaign after they lied and got caught.
Remember when he said he was going to use American steel to build these dangerous pipelines? Russian steel arrived last week for the Keystone XL Pipeline.
Remember when he said he wasn’t going to go on vacation or play golf? Five of the last seven weekends he went on vacation and played golf, costing taxpayers $11.1 million.
Remember when he said would defeat ISIS in 30 days? He still doesn’t even have a plan.
Remember when he said he was going to drain the swamp of Washington insiders? His cabinet is filled with lobbyists, oil and Wall Street executives.
Remember when he said Mexico was going to pay for the wall? He has asked Congress to appropriate the $25 billion of taxpayer money to cover costs.
Remember when he said he wasn’t going to cut Social Security and Medicare? The Republican bill does just this.
Remember when he said that the Obamacare replacement would cover more people at a lower cost? The Administration now admits the AHCA will cover fewer people at a higher cost.
These are facts. Not alternative facts – these are verifiable from multiple non-partisan sources. Please check them out for yourself.
No need to bring up anyone other than the current President – everyone else should be irrelevant because no one else is currently residing in the White House. Let’s deal with the current situation, shall we?
Thankfully, as Barney Frank recently said, people are noticing.
