President Donald Trump has hit a new low in terms of the lies he is willing to tell the American people. Hilariously, this time, it took no time flat before proof arose that shattered his story.
Amidst significant disapproval surrounding the amount of money Trump is spending, and specifically, spending at Trump properties — the commander-in-chief issued the following tweet. At first glance, it might have seemed like a semi-legitimate explanation for why he was travelling out of Washington, yet again:
‘The reason I am staying in Bedminster, N.J., a beautiful community, is that staying in NYC is much more expensive and disruptive. Meetings!’

But, as we can see from this next tweet from journalist Nathaniel Meyersohn, President Trump is full of it. While supposedly in Bedminster to attend “meetings,” Trump was captured on camera on one of the Trump golf courses again:

Come on Trump, firstly, if you’re going to tell lies, can you try to be smarter about it? That is downright embarrassing.
Secondly, the money spent on this golf game and all of his travels is money that was hard-earned by the American people. Donald Trump should not need working men and women around this country to subsidize his lifestyle, and if he’s getting paid to do a job, he ought to actually be doing it.
