Trumps 'Records' Are All In His Head

Good Day World!

The most recent case of Trump lying about the supposed "records" he's broken in his first year happened Wednesday, when he visited some Florida firefighters.

 He spent the brief visit bragging about his supposed accomplishments.

The whopper-for-the-day came when he claimed he helped pass and sign more laws than any of his predecessors during their first year in office.

Pause: Trump loves captive audiences.

Fact: Every president since Eisenhower (who signed the most laws) signed more laws than Trump in their first year. He comes in dead last, but he didn't let that bother him yesterday.

As usual, Trump makes up his own realities and expects people to go along with them. I wonder what those hard working men and women thought about his ego-driven visit?

How many of those firefighters knew he was lying but had to stand there and clap?

This revision in history was closely followed by Trump's biggest whopper of the year - his Tax Scam. Or, as financial experts call it, the huge boon to the wealthy and corporations.

He's been outright lying to the public ("This tax reform is not going to be good for me, or my friends") about what provisions the bill really held.

To put the cherry on the cake, Trump claims it's the biggest tax cut in history. 

That's bullshit. It's another record only existing in his tiny brain. For the real record:

Obama passed a larger tax cut - by making most of President George W. Bush's cuts permanent.

President Reagan definitely did.

And, Presidents Kennedy and Johnson did too.

Trump's disconnect with truth and reality is moving us towards a Constitutional crisis. Tweet by tweet. Lie by lie.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
