Once again, the Tiny Tyrant tweets incoherently, and it’s another instance which may well prove to be quite troublesome, as while Trump might be capable of keeping his mouth shut on the odd occasion, he has no control when it comes to tweeting out every idiotic thought.
Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication…and WOW, Comey is a leaker!

Donald J. Trump: Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication…and WOW, Comey is a leaker!
As pointed out on Think Progress, the Tiny Tyrant seems to want things both ways here, a dismissal of Comey and his testimony as lies, and a complete vindication as well. It doesn’t work like that, which wouldn’t be news to most people on the planet, but as usual, the unpresident seems utterly clueless to anything connected to reality. This rather unpleasant, obsessive attachment to leaking has grown terribly old and weary. How many more times are we to be subjected to the hoarse cry of “Leaker!” as the walls of Castle Trump come crumbling down?
There’s a danger in Trump’s position. He and his lawyer are accusing Comey of perjury while not under oath themselves. Will Trump stand by his version of events if he has to give a sworn account of his interactions with Comey? If he does, it’ll be the word of a meticulous memo-writer against the word of a man who began his presidency by declaring war on reality itself and has,by one count, told 623 lies during the first 137 days of his administration.
Think Progress has the full analysis of the latest incoherence.

I am sure that the 623 lies told are just what has been published and fact-checked. I would say that the number is much higher. In reality, every time 45 opens his mouth, a lie flows from it, and I am sure he has spoken more than 623 times since January.
And that doesn’t count all the times he’s lied to himself.
