The congressional arm of the Republican Party was caught posting a racist meme of NFL player Colin Kaepernick, and when asked about it, they got caught in a lie.

Yahoo News’ White House correspondent, Hunter Walker caught the National Republican Congressional Committee pushing out a disparaging meme of Kaepernick. While that’s hardly unheard of from right-wing groups and individuals, the NRCC took the extra step to darken Kaepernick’s skin.

“House Republicans are running on racism, plain and simple. It’s disgusting, it’s offensive and it should be fireable, but there’s no accountability in the Republican Party,” a Democratic operative said.

When given the opportunity to clean up the public relations disaster, the NRCC then lied about it.

“The photo was not darkened,” said NRCC communications director Chris Pack.

The problem is that the original photo compared to the meme, clearly shows otherwise.

"And by the way, the swing states that we're all fighting over now, I won them all by a lot," Trump lied.

"And I have to say, if I lost, I'd be a very gracious loser," Trump said, even though he did lose and has refused to concede.

"If I lost, I'd say 'I lost' and I'd go to Florida and I'd take it easy and I'd go around and say 'I did a good job' -- but you can't ever accept when they steal and rig and rob," Trump said, despite his refusal to admit defeat while spreading lies about democracy in America.
