As we all are tired of so much winning already, let’s turn our attention to the man who never loses, The Russian Usurper. It’s a comedy in three acts.
Act 1, Don’t Bother:
Republicans should stop wasting their time on Immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November. Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solves this decades old problem. We can pass great legislation after the Red Wave!

Act 2, SUPPORT THE GOODLATTE IMMIGRATION BILL!!1!
HOUSE REPUBLICANS SHOULD PASS THE STRONG BUT FAIR IMMIGRATION BILL, KNOWN AS GOODLATTE II, IN THEIR AFTERNOON VOTE TODAY, EVEN THOUGH THE DEMS WON’T LET IT PASS IN THE SENATE. PASSAGE WILL SHOW THAT WE WANT STRONG BORDERS & SECURITY WHILE THE DEMS WANT OPEN BORDERS = CRIME. WIN!

Act 3, Act 1 and 2 Never Happened:
I never pushed the Republicans in the House to vote for the Immigration Bill, either GOODLATTE 1 or 2, because it could never have gotten enough Democrats as long as there is the 60 vote threshold. I released many prior to the vote knowing we need more Republicans to win in Nov.

He’s just not very good at lying any more, either, but I guess that won’t stop him from trying.
So here’s the thing. Since we live in interesting times (the Fortune Cookie Curse!), I think journalists should maybe just start with the assumption that whatever Comrade Trump says is a lie, or at least the opposite of what he says must be true. So don’t try to prove that he lied (who cares, we know he’s a liar, possibly the World’s Champion), instead try to find the truth.
