President Donald Trump chose to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11 by lashing out at the polls, which consistently show him losing to Democratic presidential candidates. Not only do the polls show him losing, but losing now by increasing margins.
Showing just how terrified he really is, Trump lobbed lie after lie via Twitter in an early Wednesday morning rant.
Trump once again took issue with an ABC/Washington Post poll – which is rated “A+” by Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight – calling it ” the Amazon Washington Post/ABC.” The Washington Post, which probably more than any other news outlet has broken some of the most damaging stories to the Trump presidency, is privately owned by Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, a multi-billion dollar publicly-traded retailer.
The president also called the poll, which shows him losing to Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, and Pete Buttigieg, “a phony suppression poll, meant to build up their Democrat partners.”
And in an insanely huge lie, Trump insisted, “I haven’t even started campaigning yet, and am constantly fighting Fake News like Russia, Russia, Russia.”
In fact, almost every statement in his Twitter rant was a lie.
For example, Trump has held a dozen campaign rallies in less than a year – since the November 2018 midterms. His last one was in North Carolina 36 hours ago.
Here’s how some are responding to Trump’s tweets:
And now, to commemorate the Americans we lost on 9/11, a message from the President of the United States… https://t.co/dwUmEMsooP

Trump lies when he says “Look at North Carolina last night. Dan Bishop, down big in the Polls, WINS. Easier than 2016!”
Reality is that In 2016 the GOP congressional candidate won it by over 16. Last night the GOP won that district by TWO points. Trump is destroying the GOP pic.twitter.com/1IrEi3QHzA

Trump Tries to Cover Up His Crimes With More Insane Lies: ‘To Me Everything Is About Corruption’ (Video)
Trump says the word “corruption” eight times in just over one minute.
President Donald Trump is a master brander. His name is plastered on buildings around the world. It once was slathered on steaks, printed on books and magazines, infused onto vodka, brewed onto beer, flown on an airline, and deceitfully plastered on a “university.”
Friday morning, just 24 hours after publicly committing federal crimes on national television from the White House lawn, Trump tried to rebrand his clarion call urging China to dig up – or manufacture – dirt on his number one political opponent, Joe Biden.
Now, Trump insists, his comments were totally about “corruption,” and had nothing to do with attacking his top Democratic opponent, which is a lie.
“To me everything is about corruption,” Trump told reporters late Friday morning. “We want to find out about what happened with 2016,” he insisted, furthering his conspiracy theory that the Obama administration investigated him in an attempt to illegally interfere in the election, and that Ukraine and the Democrats colluded, while Russia did not attack the U.S. election. All of which is false.
“I don’t care about Biden’s campaign, I do care about corruption,” Trump continued, in a clear lie. “His campaign that’s up to him. Politics, that’s up to them. I don’t care about politics.”
To cover up his crimes from just 24 hours prior, Trump then claimed: “Yesterday somebody asked me a question and I gave an answer, but always in the form of corruption.”
That, too, is a lie.
On Thursday President Trump called not just on China but once again on Ukraine to dig up dirt on Joe Biden and Hunter Biden.
“China should start an investigation into the Bidens,” Trump illegally declared yesterday.

‘I Was on the Phone Call’: Pompeo, After Insisting He Had No Knowledge, Admits He Was on Trump-Ukraine Call
Last week Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told ABC News’ Martha Radditz he had no knowledge of the call between President Donald Trump and the president of Ukraine.
On Wednesday, while speaking to reporters in Italy, Pompeo admitted he was in the room during the damning call.
“I was on the phone call,” Pompeo said, as CNN reports.
“I was on the phone call.”

When asked if he had heard anything inappropriate, he once again dodged.
“I’d been a secretary of state for coming on a year and a half. I know precisely what the American policy is with respect to Ukraine. It’s been remarkably consistent, and we will continue to try to drive those set of outcomes,” he claimed, not answering the question at all.
Pompeo is on a trip to try to convince foreign officials to help the Trump administration discredit the FBI and CIA investigations into President Trump, including but not limited to the Mueller investigation. He was accompanied by former Trump White House official Dr. Sebastian Gorka, a conspiracy theorist with neo-Nazi ties.
In Latest Insane Tweet – and on TV – Trump Baselessly Accuses Democrats of Threatening Ukraine President
Falsely claims Democrats “went to Ukraine and attempted to force the new President to do things that they wanted under the form of political threat.”
President Donald Trump just took to Twitter to baselessly accuse Democrats of a “political threat” against Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky. Minutes later he literally gave voice to his accusation in a news conference by attacking three top Democratic lawmakers.
In a series of tweets Trump tried to appear as if he were cooperating with the impeachment inquiry, but quickly pivoted to a “tit-for-tat” negotiation, for which he has no leg to stand.
I have informed @GOPLeader Kevin McCarthy and all Republicans in the House that I fully support transparency on so-called whistleblower information but also insist on transparency from Joe Biden and his son Hunter, on the millions of dollars that have been quickly and easily….

….taken out of Ukraine and China. Additionally, I demand transparency from Democrats that went to Ukraine and attempted to force the new President to do things that they wanted under the form of political threat.

Earlier Wednesday Trump appeared in a bilateral press event with Zelensky, and on live national television again asked the newly-elected Ukraine head of state to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Experts have said that is illegal, and impeachable.
During that presser Trump also attacked former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden, former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, and voiced support for Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Trump’s request to Zelensky came barely hours after the White House released a damning synopsis (“transcript“) or notes compilation of Trump’s July 25 call with Zelensky, during which he also urged the Ukraine president to investigate the Bidens. During that call Trump made clear if his “favor” were fulfilled he would assist the nation at war with Russia.
