President Donald Trump ticked off several lies in just under 60 seconds while visiting his supporters in Michigan on Saturday.

He told his supporters that the press was predicting an astounding “red wave” in November, a fact that even Fox News disputes, with their polls showing Biden leading nationally in the polls. Attacking them as “the fake news media,” Trump said even they were predicting a “red wave” saying that he was very far ahead in the early vote count.

“So, it just came out. We’re leading. What’s that?” he asked as the crowd cheered. “But let’s not talk about it.”

He then claimed that he was voted Michigan’s “Man of the Year,” a claim he has been making since 2016, but the details keep changing.

In 2016, Trump mentioned the unknown award six times during his campaign. After being elected, he kept bragging about it.

“In fact, five or six years before I even thought about running, for whatever reason they named me Man of the Year in Michigan. I said, how come? I didn’t even understand it myself, but I was named Man of the Year,” Trump told a New Hampshire rally last year.

Saturday, Trump claimed he got “Man of the Year in Michigan” twelve years ago. Snopes still labels the claim “false.”

Win or lose — Trump is about to unleash hell

Published

With poll numbers staying put and the odds of a Joe Biden win in Tuesday's election looking good — possibly by a decisive margin — there's mounting dread about how Donald Trump will behave after a defeat. After all, Trump is a sociopathic narcissist with the emotional control of a — well, I won't insult toddlers with the comparison — and he lives in mortal terror of being viewed as a loser. He's already made clear that he will refuses to concede, no matter what, and he's grasping desperately for any way to get legal ballots thrown out so he can steal the election.

Politics and religion are colliding out west after comments a Republican senator made while stumping for the president.

"Sen. Mike Lee drew criticism from members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints this week after comparing President Donald Trump to Captain Moroni, a heroic and selfless figure in the Book of Mormon," The Arizona Republic reported Friday evening.

"To my Mormon friends, my Latter-day Saint friends, think of him as Captain Moroni," Lee (R-UT) said, pointing to Trump. "He seeks not power, but to pull it down. He seeks not the praise of the world or the ‘fake news,’ but he seeks the well-being and the peace of the American people."
