I hate to intrude on your alternative facts but the president is a liar. I think the most egregious is lying to American troops (in person) about giving them a 10 % pay raise.

From the Military Times Dec. 27, 2018: “Trump has repeatedly claimed that troops hadn’t seen a pay raise during President Barack Obama’s time in the White House. In fact, troops have seen a pay raise of at least 1 percent every year for more than 30 years.”

“You haven’t gotten one in more than 10 years. More than 10 years!” he told a crowd of applauding service members during his remarks at Al Asad Air Base in Iraq on Wednesday. “And we got you a big one. I got you a big one.”

The president also appeared to claim he pushed for a 10 percent pay raise in 2019, even though the actual rate his administration publicly supported and eventually got approved was only 2.6 percent.

“[People said] we could make it 3 percent. We could make it 2 percent. We could make it 4 percent,” he told the troops. “I said, ‘No, make it 10 percent. Make it more than 10 percent.’ Because it’s been a long time. It’s been more than 10 years. That’s a long time.”

So tell me all you Trump supporters how would you feel when your Commander-In-Chief lies to your face? You know he’s lying and when he sends you into combat might that be based on one of his many lies? You think some of those troops are still applauding?

You claimed the Obama administration committed many crimes. There was a Republican House and Senate for 6 years of his time in office. Was Congress asleep or just incompetent to have missed all those crimes? Is it possible that the Obama administration was not corrupt? Apparently not with the news bubble you and most conservatives live in — Fox News and conservative radio.
