Trump claims Obama left him with a military ‘very low on ammunition’

It’s a metaphysical certitude that either 1) Trump made this up out of whole cloth or 2) James Mattis told him this because Trump wanted to invade Mexico, Puerto Rico, California or somewhere equally as insane.

Because I really, really doubt the U.S. military — with a budget of $611 billion for FY2016 (nearly $400 billion more than that of the second-biggest spender, China) — ran out of bullets.

Yeah, that’s the kind of trademark Trump bullshit that no longer even warrants a perfunctory Google search. But Trump’s rattlebrained Red Caps eat this stuff up.

Oh, noes! Our military couldn’t even afford gunpowder and musket balls! Thank God the Kenyan usurper is gone!

Is there nothing he won’t lie about?

Never mind. Stupid question.

Trump has a habit of projecting… I’m guessing he’s the one out of ammo… I’m sure Malania is thrilled he’s not able to shoot…

Poor Soul, he had to melt the bullets to build his wall, and just
can’t explain it.

Yeah right. We’ve got unlimited billions for planes, equipment, parades, & border walls but we forgot to buy enough bullets. Sounds like a simpleton excuse the simpleton president would believe. Probably prevented a war with an ally.

And yet he took how much money from the military for the wall or his purse? Who knows. There is so much brouhaha going on we can’t keep up. All diversions from Important things like the full Mueller Report. Pretty slick.

On President Obama’s worst day, Trump can’t even come close to being the man President Obama is. And he never will.
