President Donald Trump on Saturday lied about signing Barack Obama’s Veterans Choice bill — as he has done over 140 times.
But unlike the other scores of times he has lied about the topic, Trump was called to task for his mistruth during his Saturday press conference at his Trump National Golf Club Bedminster.
CBS White House correspondent Paula Reid called out Trump — and the leader of the free world abruptly fled his press conference.

Reid was widely praised for her tenacity in attempting to hold Trump accountable for lying to the American people, here’s some of what people were saying:
How long until Trump calls Paula Reid nasty?

Please keep this going, and please thank CBS reporter Paula Reid for calling trump out on his lying about Veteran's Choice. Pres Obama signed that in 2014 and trump has been trying to claim it as his own. The coward ran off the stage in retreat when she challenged him on it!!!🌊 https://t.co/Q7OK5JyLVq

Paula Reid emasculated Trump and he hobbled off like the coward he is.

Kudos to Paula Reid for calling the lies in chief out on another lie. Encourage your colleagues to do the same each and every time. Perhaps he will stay off the airwaves so much. https://t.co/tl7KXLDt3v

Go Paula Reid, call out his lies! Maybe he'll quit holding these sideshows!

I just saw Paula Reid finally call you out for lying about Veterans Choice. You've repeated that same lie for years. It was signed in 2014. You just signed a minor amendment to it. The look on your face was telling. A narcissistic sociopath doesn't like to get caught in his lies.

Paula Reid's courage and willingness to expose Trump in the act of stealing Social Security and Medicare from Americans, is the only way to stop this animal. https://t.co/URtgTT8aqJ
