In an attempt to commend Trump's supposed transparency, the former congressman legitimatized the president's tendency to lie, tweeting, "They all lie. All politicians lie. Obama lied. Hillary lied. Trump's at least open & honest about his lying."
But has Trump ever come clean about being a pathological false-fact dispenser?
Let's review some of his famous lies: On his inauguration, he commented, "Now, the audience was the biggest ever. But this crowd was massive. Look how far back it goes. This crowd was massive.”
“Chris Cuomo, in his interview with Sen. Blumenthal, never asked him about his long-term lie about his brave ‘service’ in Vietnam. FAKE NEWS!” Fact is, it was a part of Cuomo's first question.
Remember the many times he graced the cover of Time magazine? He seems to remember all of them. “A reporter for Time magazine — and I have been on their cover 14 or 15 times. I think we have the all-time record in the history of Time magazine.” Fact: Trump was on the cover 11 times, and Nixon holds the record for 55 times.
The list is a long one, but you get the idea. Trump is not always telling the truth. And Twitter couldn't resist responding to Joe Walsh's inadvertent punchline.
