You can always figure out just how desperate Donald Trump is by the level of ridiculous in the lies he tells. Clearly, he’s freaking out now that Rudy Giuliani told everyone that he knew about the $130,000 hush money payment to Stormy Daniels (despite insisting that he didn’t). And as usual, Trump is spreading falsehoods and trying to create diversions.
Earlier today, Trump went off the rails in a speech and claimed that his biggest threat, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, was a Democrat — even though Mueller is very clearly a life-long Republican (this has been widely reported). Trump also stated that Mueller worked for former President Barack Obama for eight years, which is another lie. In a ridiculous rant, Trump said:
“But you have a group of investigators that are all Democrats. In some cases, they went to the Hillary Clinton celebration that turned out to be a funeral. So you have all these investigators that are Democrats. In all fairness, Bob Mueller worked for Obama for eight years.”
You can watch Trump melt down below:
It’s amazing that Trump chooses to lie about things that could very easily be fact-checked by asking a member of his team. Clearly, Mueller is a Republican — but Trump wants America to believe otherwise so he can create a narrative about why he can’t do an interview with Mueller. During another part of this crazy speech, Trump claimed that Mueller and the Russian investigation were biased. Trump has been trying to justify his reluctance to talk to Mueller:
“Nothing I want to do more, because we did nothing wrong. But I have to find that we will be treated fairly. Right now it is a pure witch hunt.”
Clearly, Trump is terrified of Mueller and his lies are the only thing he has to protect him.
