Over the last few years of absolute hell that has been the Trump presidency, we have come to learn that, if there is one thing Donald Trump is known for, it’s lying through his damn teeth. Literally. All the time. Every time he opens his mouth, it’s just a bullshit flood of epic proportions. We don’t know if he’s just a pathological liar or if, perhaps, his mental health really has deteriorated so far that he doesn’t even know what’s real and what’s not anymore.
But what always remains the same, every time he starts to get caught in one of his numerous webs of falsehoods, is the fact that he always ends up going on about how “honest” he actually is.
For one, if you’re truly an honest person, you don’t have to convince people of it. For two, someone that lies more often than he changes his underwear, and regularly gets caught in the middle of them no less, does not get to say that they’re an honest person.
But nevertheless, that is precisely what he does. And it’s precisely what he did during an exclusive interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos.
Lately, Trump has had that underwear of his in quite a bunch over several polls that are predicting his loss in the upcoming 2020 presidential election. Ever since he caught wind of them, he’s been screaming “fake news!” from the rooftops and encouraging everyone to instead trust the internal polls that depict him in a flattering light.
During the interview, Stephanopoulos questioned Trump as to why these polls bother him so much.
“Because it’s untrue,” Trump replied. “I like the truth. You know, I’m actually a very honest guy.”
“If I thought they were correct I wouldn’t be complaining at all,” Donald added. “I understand that.”
Of course, Twitter had lots of thoughts:
😂😂😂😂😂 This is too funny for words.

How George kept a straight face listening to that bullshit, I will never know. But if you believe that Donald Trump is an “honest guy” I’ve got some oceanfront property in Arizona that you’d just love.
