This article could easily be titled “Donald Trump lied,” and no one would be surprised because the “president” is so full of shit he needs a toilet handle attached to his jaw. Trump’s lies are easily disprovable, but his supporters apparently lack the skills to use Google. While in Davos for the World Economic Forum, Trump told CNBC that “entitlement programs” such as Social Security and Medicare will be potentially cut in the near future, calling them “the easiest of all things” to carve from the budget, because “it’s such a big percentage.”
Trump said those words while he was in Davos, Switzerland where he rubbed elbows with the world’s most elite billionaires. The Trump administration has suggested cutting direly needed programs before; after all, someone has to pay for the GOP’s tax cuts for the wealthy.
Here he is admitting it:

Maybe one of Trump’s advisors warned the “president” that cutting necessary programs for vulnerable Americans won’t help him win a second term. Or, perhaps Trump is a pathological liar.
“Democrats are going to destroy your Social Security,” he tweeted. “I have totally left it alone, as promised, and will save it!”
Democrats are going to destroy your Social Security. I have totally left it alone, as promised, and will save it!

Twitter users piled in.
Do you even remember your own lies anymore?
CNBC: “Will you be looking at cutting Social Security and Medicare if you win re-election?”
TRUMP: “At some point they will be cut”
CNBC: “But you said you wouldn’t do that in the past.”https://t.co/7i9xhAvBfi

You said yesterday you would cut entitlements.
Were you lying yesterday or today?
(Kidding: I know all you ever do is lie.)

That’s a lie. The GOP has used the massive deficit they’ve run up as an excuse to try to go after Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.
You haven’t left it alone. You just were stopped from screwing it up.

There are only three choices to explain Trump’s most recent lie: He’s fucking nuts and doesn’t remember what he said the day before, he’s lying his ass off, or he’s fucking nuts and a liar. Cruelty is the point with Mr. Trump.
