Political Satire: Donald Trump blunders through news conference lies

The one and only Donald "Pinocchio" Trump
Let's start with the "Perfect" Executive Order rollout, which he bragged over after describing his administration as “a fine-tuned machine.” Neither the Executive Order rollout was perfect, nor is his administration a fine-tuned machine. The Immigration Executive Order was stopped in in its tracks by a court order and this administration, well, it can only be considered a complete disaster. This can be illustrated through the antics of one of his top advisers, Kellyanne Conway, who has recently been banned by two major news organizations because all she does is lie to the media.

But, of course, Donald Trump is the head honcho when it comes to barfing up the complete fabrication of the truth. USA today did a fact-check on his recent disinformation news conference and the level of deception of the American public is downright frightening. Here are some...

• Trump said that the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which unanimously decided not to reinstate Trump’s travel ban, has had its rulings overturned by the Supreme Court “at a record number.” Not true.

• The president claimed his November victory was “the biggest Electoral College win since Ronald Reagan.” It wasn’t. Three presidents since Reagan captured a larger share of electoral votes than Trump did, including Republican George H.W. Bush.

• Trump said he thought the media had “a lower approval rate than Congress.” No — the public’s approval of Congress is lower than its trust in the media. There's more in the link below.

Donald John's Geppetto apparently had a dull knife when he carved what is now the president of the United States. In Pinocchio, the wooden figure just wanted to be a boy but tends to lie a lot. Fortunately, he has a cricket named Jiminy, who helps him with his conscience and the change eventually happens. Happy ending, right? Pinocchio yes, White House no. There is no Jiminy Cricket in the WH but if there were, with the level of lies spewing from this man, and his determination to continue the trend, he would need to walk around the Oval Office with a can of Raid.
