When your presidency is as horrible as Donald Trump’s and your party is in shambles because of it, the only way you can get ahead is to lie your ass off — which is exactly what Donald Trump did earlier today in the Rose Garden during his speech.
Trump and the GOP know they’re in deep sh*t in midterm elections — even conservatives who voted for Trump are getting ready to leave the party for good due to the horrors they’ve seen over the last year and few months. So, Trump is now resorting to making up things to make Democrats look bad — for example, a fake Democratic tax increase. Trump said during his speech:
“Nobody thought they’d ever see that. They’ll have a lot more money to spend. And we didn’t get one democratic vote. That’s tough. In fact, I have to say, they want to increase your taxes. If they ever got into power, they have stated that they want to increase your taxes and spend money on things that you don’t even want to know about.”
For the record, no Democrat has said they would raise taxes if they are able to win back Congress. There is no hidden list of spending priorities — which is exactly why Trump wasn’t able to name anything specific.
This move by Trump is pretty much as desperate as it can get, resorting to the old fear-mongering tactics that he used during his presidential campaign. Unfortunately for Trump, more of the country has awakened to the fact that nearly everything that comes out of his mouth is a lie. The Republican Party knows it’s in trouble, but they have no one but themselves to blame. Expect more outrageous lies in the future, because we all know that as Trump gets more stressed out, he only gets crazier.
