At this point, it should be clear that our president has a little lying problem (and by “little,” I mean “uuuuuuge”).

And, as everybody raised with a black mama knows, “If you lie, you steal, and if you steal, you kill” (which never really made sense to me as a child, but it seems totally appropriate with Donald Trump—that is, actions by a person with no moral code can quickly devolve into chaos and murder).

Anywho, President Trump tweeted Friday that he turned down a potential offer to be Time magazine’s Person of the Year after, he wrote, the magazine told him he would “PROBABLY” be given the honor.

Now, this is the man who was busted about having fake Time covers in his golf clubs (which the mag asked him to remove), and so, of course, he was first checked by Time itself, which said the president was “incorrect,” and then by Time Inc.’s chief content officer, who said there wasn’t a “speck of truth” in Trump’s tweet.

The former editor of Time also got in on it:

And then our dear president was dragged for filth by the celebs, including Luke Skywalker. And my Saturday was made.

At this point, it should be clear that our president has a little lying problem (and by little, I mean “uuuuuuge”).

I’ve almost gotten use to his lying. I mean, we all knew kids like that growing up and maybe even a few folks like that as adults (besides this asshole).

But what I won’t get used to is the apparent fear the media has of calling a liar a liar (present company definitely excluded). Time knows they didn’t call him about this shit, but they let his lyin’ ass off the hook by saying he’s “incorrect.” Yes, technically, he is incorrect, but more to the point he’s FUCKING LYING!!! Just say it. They wrote a whole column about Trump and the truth and never were able to put the words “Trump lies.” into the story:

Trump says a great many things that are demonstrably false. But indicting Trump as a serial liar risks missing a more disturbing question: What does he actually believe? Does it count as lying if he believes what he says?

Yes, it counts as lying! He can “believe” that Time magazine called him, but he knows and Time knows it didn’t happen. And if he actually believes he actually spoke to them on the phone about this, he’s either senile or got scammed, both of which are just as bad. But we all know that’s not the case.

Trump lies. More folks need to say that and stop fucking parsing his bullshit.
