Trump Lies Biden Demanded A Presidential Decree on Masks, Then Is Shocked When Reporter Calls Him On Lies

Donald Trump projects like an IMAX theater. He called Hillary Clinton “crooked” — look who’s talking — and Joe Biden got the label “Sleepy Joe” early on. Today, a barely awake Trump stumbled his way through remarks at the podium, once again, and he got the facts bass ackwards. Once again. New Civil Rights Movement:

On Thursday Biden called on the nation’s governors to issue across the board mask mandates. Trump, in a campaign speech delivered under the false pretense of a coronavirus news conference, attacked his Democratic rival, and falsely claimed Biden had called for a national mask mandate instituted by presidential decree.

Trump, who misuses the power of his office regularly, claimed he did not think a President has the power to mandate mask wearing (he or she does.)

“Every governor should mandate mandatory mask wearing. The estimates by the experts are that it will save over 40,000 lives in the next three months. Forty thousand lives, if people act responsibly,” former Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday, referring to scientific studies. “It’s not about your rights. It’s about your responsibilities as an American.”

Trump kept faltering along, repeating himself, through the so-called news conference. And there was the obligatory lie about how great the United States is doing and another oft-repeated lie about how other countries “call all the time” because they’re so amazed at the job the U.S. is doing. Trump has not announced which countries those are, or on what planet they’re located. It’s a cinch it’s not this one.

It would have been interesting if some reporter in the room would have asked why Americans are banned from traveling in so many countries right now, if the handling of the pandemic in this country is the envy of the world.

But here’s a ray of hope. Huffington Post reporter S.V. Date asked Trump if he regretted all the lies he’s told the American people.

I must say, that was a breath of fresh air. We need to see more of that.

Why does anyone even listen to this man? He’s a Gold-Medal Olympic LIAR! He’s the most accomplished liar in Western [un]civilization! If there were a Pulitzer Prize for lies, who’d nominate anyone without the surname TRUMP?!

If he wants fame, there could be an award for world’s greatest liar with a Trump medal of Pinocchio’s long nose on one side and a steaming pile of dog excrement on the other side.

I love his response about mail-in voting… about how any country could just grab the ballots… because we all know every post office in the country has foreign operatives just wait to screw with the voting ballots…

He actually has the stones to let that batF#ckery fly from his lips without so much as a twitch… amazing, I couldn’t lie like that and keep a straight face.

That will surely tip him over the edge. If you don’t believe me, read Mary Trump’s book

Joe & Kamala are handling this perfectly. Seize the narrative & let trump play catch up. They looked like leaders & spoke to the American people honestly about how to reduce the deaths from Covid while the blathering numpty is mumbling about sleepy Joe & trying to revive birtherism. The contrast is stark & a lot of people (I’ve read) are voting for Joe because he’s “not trump”. Oh, and NOBODY, I mean NOBODY calls him & tells him what a great job he’s doing with covid. 4% of the world’s population, 25% of the world’s infections, & 171,867 deaths… Read more »
