The President went as far as to claim that he hasn’t left the White House for months amid the quarantine even though it’s public knowledge he definitely has! Donald Trump held no less than 5 rallies back in February and March and people on social media were quick to roast him for the lies.
The POTUS is known for always making all kinds of outlandish claims but he seems yet to realize just how easy to disprove they are.
That being said, during his April White House coronavirus, COVID-19 update, he claimed that he’s been stuck there for months, doing his part in trying to flatten the curve and stop the spread of the pandemic.
Obviously, it did not take long before social media users flooded Twitter with mocking posts, reminding him of all the rallies he definitely held out of the White House not even two months ago!
It was as if he’d forgotten just how much backlash he got back in February precisely because of how little he did to prepare the country for the looming outbreak.
Fast-forward weeks later, and the United States is now the epicenter of the outbreak with far more cases than anywhere else in the world!
As for his latest lie, it all started with PBS News Hour’s Yamiche Alcindor asking about it, prompting Trump to argue that ‘I did take it very seriously.’
She reminded him that ‘You held rallies in February and March and there are some Americans who say…’
At this point she got cut off, the President insisting that ‘I don’t know about rallies. I really don’t know about rallies. I know one thing. I haven’t left the White House in months except to give a wonderful ship The Comfort…’
Yamiche did not give up, reminding him that he did hold a rally in March, Trump once again struggling to remember: ‘Did I hold a rally? I’m sorry I hold a rally. Did I hold a rally? Let me tell you, in January when I did this, we had virtually no cases and no deaths.’
Also Trump getting caught in a lie is pretty amazing to watch.
