Donald Trump loves to brag about how everything he does is the best, biggest, greatest achievement the world has ever seen, but this time he might be right. On Sunday morning, he put out 5 tweets in 33 minutes and those tweets contained 11 lies. Even for Trump, that’s pretty impressive. One of the more ridiculous ones. Trump said this:
In the Hillary Clinton Campaign where she deleted 33,000 Emails, got $145,000,000 while Secretary of State, paid McCabes wife $700,000 (and got off the FBI hook along with Terry M) and so much more. Republicans and real Americans should start getting tough on this Scam.”
There are several lies in that sentence. Yes, she did delete 33,000 emails. THat’s the only true statement. The first lie is that the $145 million he’s referring to was donated to the Clinton Foundation and those donations came before she was even being considered for Secretary of State. The second lie is that Clinton “paid McCabe’s wife $700,000. A Political Action Committee in Virginia gave her $700,000 when she ran for a House seat there. That PAC is run by Terry McCauliffe, a Clinton ally, but also the former governor of Virginia, which is why he has a PAC there to support Democratic candidates for office. There was nothing different about the donation to McCabe’s wife, that PAC gave that kind of money to many other candidates as well.
There are many more on the list. The man lies as casually as he breathes.
