Trump invents Obama quote in tweet boasting of economic performance

Source: The Independent

Donald Trump has attributed a false quote to Barack Obama in a tweet about the US economy.

The president wrote: “’President Trump would need a magic wand to get to 4% GDP,’ stated President Obama. I guess I have a magic wand, 4.2%, and we will do MUCH better than this! We have just begun.”

But Mr Obama has never said this, and during his presidency GDP exceeded 4.2 per cent on three separate occasions.

2. Considering the way this meme propagated

itself across social media, a large cross-section of the populace believes this to be a real quote. People are stupid.

5. Lying piece of crap ... proves constantly what an ass he is and that he'll backstab anyone ...

and do anything to gain anything. I would never ever trust this sniveling little coward, and by now, everyone should know this. Ask any of your rump fans (for those of us who manage to deal w/ people who like rump) if they would trust this little piece of crap w/ their money...I'm serious...go ask any of the contractors and others who got stiffed by rump.

No wonder he was shipped to military school...he IS a spoiled, ignorant brat.

8. Right now this is the only card in his hand.

He's likely aware Mueller has his ducks in a row, and RedDon is going with the "but my performance is so good you can't fire me" like he's on his own reality show.

11. I've stopped using the word "gaslighting" to describe what he does..

It's not like a relationship where one partner exploits the trust of his/her partner.

Trump just loves lying for every damn thing. The only reason his approval rating hasn't sunk below 30 is the cultish sycophancy of the Republican base.

12. Like Obama would say some classless

 

dick-comparison joke.

Sounds more like something an insecure dickless wonder would make up.
