President Donald Trump has a habit of contradicting himself. More often than not, his tweets feel hypocritical to something he has previously said or supported. In fact, it’s almost too easy to catch Trump in an unnecessary lie or belabored point.

As long as you have Twitter handy, you can pull up things he’s tweeted in the middle of the night from his tweet room (i.e. bathroom) and cross reference them with what he’s saying on television. It shouldn’t be that easy to catch our politicians in a lie, but the internet has a knack for pulling up the receipts on 45. 

When You Slam A Restaurant's Cleanliness Even Though Yours Received 78 Violations


 

On June 22, 2018, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave a restaurant based on moral grounds. The owner of the Red Hen in Lexington, VA, Stephanie Wilkinson, said she asked Sanders to leave after receiving a call from her concerned employee. Wilkinson has several gay employees and they felt uncomfortable having someone who openly fought against allowing transgender people in the military at their restaurant.

“I explained that the restaurant has certain standards that I feel it has to uphold, such as honesty, and compassion, and cooperation," Wilkinson told the Washington Post. “I said, ‘I’d like to ask you to leave.’ ”

Sanders was not pleased with this decision and made it known on her White House Twitter account. Two days after she tweeted, President Trump weighed in on the situation, slamming the restaurant for its "filthy canopies" and how it "badly needs a paint job." 

What Trump failed to mention, however, is that his own Mar-a-Lago resort received 78 health code violations over the course of three years. Some of these violations include defective fridges that housed meat above the required 41 degrees; a slicer "soiled with old food debris; and an "accumulation of black/green mold-like substance," discovered in the kitchen's ice machine. 

TFW You Want Putin to be Your BFF


"I never met Putin. This is not my best friend. But if the United States got along with Russia, wouldn't be so bad."

Grab 'Em by the Twitter


Trump's most substantial comment on allegations of unwanted sexual advances was simply, "Nobody has more respect for women than I do." It's worth noting that in 2005 he said:  "I'm automatically attracted to beautiful [women]—I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a star they let you do it. You can do anything ... Grab them by the p*ssy. You can do anything."

Maybe He Means Nancy Reagan


"I did disagree with Ronald Reagan very strongly on trade. I disagreed with him. We should have been much tougher on trade even then. I've been waiting for years. Nobody does it right."
