CNN’s Jake Tapper knocks Trump lies: The Washington Post had to create a new section ‘the bottomless Pinocchio’

On Tuesday, CNN’s Jake Tapper knocked President Donald Trump for the egregious amount of lies that he tells.

Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, had a hearing for lying to the FBI about his Russian contacts.

Lying seems to be a routine behavior for Trump and those connected to him. Flynn pleaded guilty to lying in January 2017.

Trump has lied at a record-breaking level for a president of the United States, that it has caused news organizations to innovate new fact-checking measures.

“Trump tells so many lies that The Washington Post had to create a new section ‘the bottomless Pinocchio,'” Tapper said.

“President Trump’s false and misleading claims that have been repeated more than 20 times led us to create a new Pinocchio rating,” Meg Kelly from The Post said.

Trump adviser ties his tongue in knots trying to explain away the president’s anti-Hispanic racism

Published

On Monday night, President Donald Trump received heavy criticism after a rally in New Mexico in which he turned to one of his Hispanic advisers, Steve Cortes, said he "looks more like a WASP than I do," and asked him "Who do you like more, the country or the Hispanics?"

Talking with CNN's Chris Cuomo on Tuesday, Cortes was completely undeterred from going to bat for Trump against accusations of racism.

"Forget about how he put what he put to you last night. He's not the greatest wordsmith. It was a little clumsy, you recognize that, none of that matters to me," said Cuomo.
