Trump lies on pretty much an hourly basis, but one of his most ridiculous lies is repeatedly claiming that when he took office, the military had totally run out of ammunition, but he fixed that.

Failed Virginia Republican candidate for Lt. Governor E.W. Jackson says that conservatives are at a disadvantage against liberals because liberals, being the immoral, horrible people we are, will murder them if we think we can get away it.
